Nangpala valley in the Everest region or the trekking to the Nangpala combined with the Everest base camp trekking route has been one of the most demanded trekking routes in recent days. This circuit requires special permit as it is on the border of Tibet. The trekking is also extended with Gokyo valley trekking and Everest Base Camp that crosses Chola pass.
Nagpala is also known as Renjo La pass is usually joined up with the Everest base camp trekking. It is one of the most challenging routes in the Everest region along the Everest base camp trekking. The trekking route is passes through Lukla-Namche Bazaar and Thame-- the heart land of Sherpa ethic community. This is considered to be one of the most adventurous trekking routes in Nepal and most frequently visited trekking routes among the tourists who come across with the Budget Adventure Treks Expeditions.
We have direct flight from Kathmandu to the Lukla by airstrip for about 30 minutes and take a walk for four hours and reach at Phakding and rest for a night. Next day, we head to Namchhe, subsequently to Thame and we take some days for acclimatization and we head on to Lungden, similarly make trip to Sumna, Kanchung, Nangpa La and finally we reach at Gokyo valley via Renjo Pass (5340 m).
