Renjo-La via Nang-Pa La is one of the challenging routes in the Everest region, however Bomjan Treks expedition makes it possible for even the beginner to succeed in their first glory. The journey starts from Lukla from where we move to Namche Bazar. Following the magnificent Marulung, the trekkers are taken to the jaw dropping Nangpa Glacier. The High pass of Renjo La gives the explorers the sight of the beautiful Gokyo and the icy Himalayas. Although guarded by the Tibetian guards, it bears almost no hindrance for the trekkers.
Acclimatization can be your best friend as high altitude sickness even gets the best if not driven with caution. The explorers can take well up to 2-3 days of their entire trek adjusting to the altitude and it’s worth every moment.
