Sherpa Cultural Dress-upThe Everest Renjo La Pass trek starts from Lukla and ascends up to Namche Bazaar, which is the capital of the Sherpa people. Namche Bazaar is the best place to acclimatize, so we recommend staying here for a couple of nights and prepare for high altitude. Namche Bazaar has banks, internet, telephone, trekking equipment, and nice food. The Dudh Koshi River is the main river in this region. After crossing the Renjo La Pass (5430m) the trailheads along the riverbank of the Dudh Koshi River. The trail heads up the Gokyo valley where it mostly ascends and then after Renjo La pass, the trail then descends to Lukla.
