Renjo La, the unknown face of Everest with guide

A new circuit out of the usual tracks that leads to know an incredibly fascinating valley which extends at the foot of Cho Oyu: the Thame valley and the Bothe Koshi river. Tibetan caravans descend along this valley and, through centuries of Nangpa La, they transport their goods for sale in the Khumbu valley and in particular to the Namche Bazaar market. With the crossing of the best known Cho La and the achievement of the famous Kalapattar and the Everest base camp, an itinerary that combines novelty and tradition is completed. An itinerary for those who also want to discover new views and new paths experimenting for the most part with very uncrowded spaces and dimensions compared to what happens going up to Everest along the most popular Khumbu valley.

  • To accompany the trip will be our collaborator Manuel Lugli; he was born in Modena on 21st May 1961. Classical high school diploma in 1980 and degree in medicine and surgery in 1987 but without ever practicing the medical profession to devote myself completely to the mountains and travel. From 1989 to 1995 he created and managed a shop specializing in mountain equipment and organized trips and expeditions. In 1996 he started the activity of organizing travel, trek and full-time expeditions, first for an important Italian agency and then, since 2002, with his own agency called ” Il Nodo Infinito”. In recent years he has worked with many of the strongest climbers on the Italian and world scene, as well as being a Go trekking consultant. He has worked on some special projects of National Geographic Television, Spanish Tve-Television and Rai 3-Geo & Geo. He has personally organized and participated in various expeditions on mountains and glaciers in: Iceland, Norway, India, USA, China, Tibet, Nepal, Pakistan, Kamchatka, Mongolia, Patagonia and Asian Republics. Since 2004 he has deepened his knowledge of Africa by traveling repeatedly, even for long periods, to Morocco, Tunisia, Senegal, Kenya, Namibia, Botswana and Angola. He is also a national ski-climbing instructor of the Italian Alpine Club and was director of the Mountaineering, Free Climbing Ski Mountaineering School “Bismantova” for 8 years.

Namche Bazaar-Khunde (3840 m.) - Khumjung (3780 m.) - Namche (B / L / D)

Acclimatization day around Namche. With a beautiful scenic route, you rise 400 meters to reach the nearby villages of Khunde and Khumjung at the foot of the sacred mountain Khumbi Yul Lha, protector of the Khumbu valley. You visit the monastery of Khunde and its small, but well-equipped hospital founded in 1966 thanks to the Himalayan Trust, an institution created by Sir Edmund Hillary.

7° day

Namche (3440 m.)-Thame (3829 m.) (B/L/D)

Here begins the most beautiful part of the trek which includes two nights in a tent. With a beautiful very gradual path you enter the little beaten valley of Thame and Bothe Koshi. The valley, which originates from the Bothe Koshi and Lumsumna glacier, houses the centuries-old path that leads to Nangpa La and connects Tibet and Nepal. This gateway to Tibet, which passes practically at Cho Oyu's foot, is only open to Tibetans who go down to Khumbu for their businesses. After visiting the monastery of Thame, the second most important of all the Khumbu after Tengboche, accommodation in a lodge in Thame.

Thame (3829 m.)-Lungde (4380 m.) (B/L/D)

It starts northwards through the old part of Thame. It is the path that leads to Nangpa La and then Tibet, the valley initially wide, narrows as you get up. You reach the Marlung pastures where there is a space for camping and a very rudimentary lodge and continue towards Lungde (4400 m.) With a more decisive uphill path. Arrival at the nice lodge in Lungde and accommodation.

9° day

Lundge- Gokyo Via Renjo Lake (4750 m.)-Renjo La (5434 m.)-Gokyo (4793 m.) (B/L/D)

Challenging stage, which allows you to fully enjoy the panorama and make a good acclimatization. Gradually leaving the Bothe Koshi valley with a slightly steep stretch you go up towards Renjo Lake. As you climb, the panorama becomes more and more grandiose; to the south the chain that dominates the Thame valley and contains the spectacular peaks of the Tarthika (6093 m.), The Kwande (6186 m.), and many others up to 6700 m. The chain reaches the Parchamo, known trekking peak, and the Tashi Lapcha pass which connects the Thame valley with the Rolwaling valley. To the east towers the difficult and beautiful Kyajo Ri (6186 m.) and, slightly displaced, the equally impressive Pharilapcha (6017 m.). This is the most demanding G., the one that foresees the passage of the 5434 meters of the Renjo La. However, the path is very gradual and except for the last 150 meters, in which it becomes a little steep, it offers a very progressive and pleasant climb. Beyond Renjo Lake, you enter the beautiful basin of another lake, the Relama Tsho; we start to climb the slopes that lead below the pass from here. The excellent and recent arrangement of the path allows you to make the last part of the climb with fairly limited effort. The panorama continues to be magnificent towards the Bothe Koshi valley, but it is a step when you finally manage to make the view sweep east, that the spectacle becomes breathtaking; six hundred meters below the Dudh Pokhari, the turquoise lake on the whose banks are the village of Gokyo, on the horizon in a sensational parade from south to north, the Tawoche Peak (6367 m.), the Cholatse (6335 m.), the Aarakam Tse (6423 m.), the Lobuche (6145 m.), until reaching Makalu (8463 m.), Everest (8848 m.) Pumori (7121 m.) And of course Cho Oyu (8201 m.). The descent to Gokyo and its turquoise lake takes approximately 3 hours. Overnight stay at the lodge.

11° day

In a short time you will reach Dragnag where you will stay overnight before crossing the Cho La pass (5420 m.).

12° day

Dragnag (4700 m.) - Dzonglha (4830 m.) (B / L / D)

In the early morning the ascent to Cho La begins. A beautiful glacial lake is flanked at an altitude of 5100 m approximately and finally, you reach the pass that offers a new close view of the mountains of the Khumbu valley. The fairly long descent leads to Dzonghla (4830 m.) where you will spend the night.

14° day

Lobuche-campo base Everest (5300 m.)-Gorak Shep(B/L/D)

Day of visit to the famous Everest base camp. Despite the small difference in altitude, the route takes place first on the lateral moraine of the Khumbu glacier and then, on the glacier itself with several up and down making it rather tiring (about 3.30 h). On the other hand, approaching the field and above all the incredible Icefall gives intense emotions. Return to the Gorak Shep and overnight stay in the lodge.
