The views are just incredible and after arriving at Lukla we make sure to hold a last briefing and equipment’s check. Now the trek begins, as we head to Phakding the landscape completely takes us in and the adventure is underway. Seeing those amazing views and being captured by the natural beauty of this region after another day of trekking we reach to Namche Bazaar. Here we hold an acclimatization day to get used to the high altitude. Continuing on towards our first high Pass via Thame and Lungde the Renjo La Pass at 5,360m/17,585ft. After crossing we make our way towards Gokyo Lake, this pristine alpine lake is just amazing and with the views from Gogkyo Ri it becomes only better and better.
