gokyo-renjo-la-trek-52

This is a strenuous and challenging trek. We walk through forests of pine and rhododendron, along rivers, through Sherpa villages and visit monasteries. It may be necessary to use crampons, ice axe and rope, should the conditions dictate. In severe conditions, we may not be able to cross these passes. This challenging trek is rewarded with spectacular views and the opportunity to enjoy Sherpa culture.
