This trek is the ideal trek for those with less time but still want to reach some peaks! A mixture of easy and hard days, the trek takes you over the Renjo Pass and to the Gokyo Ri (peak) offering splendid views of all the mountains in the region from different angles and visiting the stunning Gokyo lakes. This is also a wonderful trek for experiencing Sherpa culture and getting a little more off the beaten track.

Detailed Itinerary

1Day 1
Schedule flight to Lukla (2840m). Trek to Phakding. (2610m)
Enjoy a scenic flight with stunning views as you fly alongside the Himalayas from Kathmandu to Lukla. Upon arrival in Lukla, it is a half day’s trek along the Dudh Kosi Valley to Phakding where you will rest for the night.
2Day 2
Namche Bazar (3440m)
Continuing along the Dudh Kosi (river), you will enter Sagarmatha National Park (showing or buying your entrance ticket and registering your TIMS card). After continuing along the river, you will start to ascend towards Namche Bazar. This is the first altitude jump so it is important to take it easy on the way up.
3Day 3
Khumjung (3780m) for acclimatization
It is a short journey to Khumjung (about 2 hours) and the rest of the day is set aside for acclimatization. After a steep climb up steps to the Syangboche airstrip. The route continues upwards before a short, steep descent to Khumjung where you can relax or visit the monastery for the remains of the day.
4Day 4
Thame (3820m)
The trek to Thame from Khumjung is about 4 hours through forests. Along the way you will pass through Sherpa villages and enjoy stunning mountain views. The last section of the journey has a steep climb before you cross a stream and it’s a short walk further to Thame. You can visit the monastery there too.
5Day 5
Lungden (4350m)
Another relatively short day from Thame to Lungden. The route takes you along the river as you ascend, passing old walled Sherpa villages.
6Day 6
Gokyo (4790m) - Cross Renjo Pass (5340m)
This is a long and challenging day crossing the Renjo Pass. It is important to be mindful of how the altitude is affecting you so as not to put yourself in any unnecessary risks. The trail goes up and down along sandy ridges and past frozen streams. Once you reach the pass, you will be treated to incredible views of all the surrounding mountains before heading down to Gokyo lake where you will take a well-earned rest for the night.
7Day 7
Hike up Gokyo Ri (5360m)
Climbing steeply up above Gokyo lake, the trail to Gokyo Ri (peak) is hard going, but when you reach the top, the view will make you forget everything. From here you can enjoy views of all the surrounding mountains with Everest towering over them. Absolutely breath-taking, (once you’ve caught your breath!). You will return back to Gokyo for lunch and in the afternoon go for a walk around the lake and even go further to see the fourth and fifth Gokyo lakes if you are feeling up for it before returning to Gokyo to spend the night.
8Day 8
