Gokyo Lakes Trek & Renjo La
I am planning to trek the Gokyo Valley trek in early may. This would get me though the different lakes and up to Gokyo Ri. Instead of coming back the same way, I am planning to come back through the Renjo La pass (Then Lumde/Marulung, Thame and then down to Namche Bazaar).
In total this should take about 13 days from Lukla. I am planning to start the trek in Lukla in May 1rst. Following is the itinerary I want to follow.
I am not planning to hire a guide at this point, but I am definitely looking for a trekking partner. Let me know if this is something you would like to do as well. I am opened to a different itinerary (Especially the way back), but I would definitely like to see Gokyo area.
I am 30 from Canada. I am fitted but not necessarily looking to go fast as we take the time to enjoy the culture and scenery around.
Hope to here news from you! =)
