  • Renjo La Pass - 5.360 M
  • Day 12: Gokyo to Lungden, via Renjo La (5,360 m)

    Bidding goodbye to Gokyo was tough, but after a breakfast of muesli with milk, I finally hauled up my backpack (all dry now, thanks to the afternoon sun), and set off towards the trail to Renjo La.
    .
    This was the last time I was going to climb above 5,000 m. The path was quite gradual at the beginning, and I kept looking back at Gokyo. All of a sudden, I was welcomed by a steep, winding path. Although I was not tired at all, my mind was being lazy! But I steadily climbed up the trail quite quickly. From there, the terrain became gradual once more. I passed by some locals who had camped in a flat patch of ground nearby. .
    And then came the final push. I could see the pass, and it surprised me how soon I was near it! Memories of the Kongma La and even Cho La, where I walked a whole bunch more came to me. I wasn& #039 ;t complaining though. Knowing that the rest of the day will be entirely downhill, I summoned the energy to push to the top and voila, I was at the Renjo La. A final view of the Everest was before me, as well as Lhotse, Makalu, Pumori. The other side presented the Rolwaling range, and a tiny alpine lake below. After spending some time soaking in the views and taking photos, I began the descent. .
    It felt unreal that this was it. Now all I had to do was descend all the way. No more climbing! The trail was very well laid out. Steps made with stones, no rocky patches, and gentle dirt tracks. I was literally skipping down! I make it to the village of Lungden before noon! This has been my shortest pass day ever, taking less than 5 hours. I consider pushing forward, but decide to just chill at Lungden.
    .
    I find a cozy lodge, and stay for just a 100 Nepali rupees. Most of the other trekkers at the lodge are heading up the Renjo La tomorrow, while me and another solo trekker are headed down to Namche. I laze around the heater, chatting with everyone about the trek and the experience, and finally have dinner and sleep by 9 pm.
