This trek takes the trekker up to Nagpa la at the border with Tibet a very remote area. This pass is the path Tibetan trader have used for centuries to enter the Khumbu. Caravans of yak laden Tibetan traders still take this route over the Himalayas to sell there goods at Namche Bazaar.
A particularly beautiful time to explore this region is at the end of monsoon season when wild flowers decorate the typically barren Nangpala in a sea of color. Observing the Tibetan caravans, the area's remoteness, gazing at the biggest glaciers in the Khumbu region, and spectacular views of Mt. Everest and Mt. Cho Oyo are the spectacular highlights of this trek. The newly opened Renjo Pass crossing between Gokyo and Nangpala is a breathtakingly beautiful walk offering impressive views of Mt. Everest.
