  • Trek Back to Namche Bazaar - Dr. Godbole and His Friends Gokyo & Renjo-La Pass Trek 2015 - Daily Dispatches
    and a half hours and there were ups and downs which really sapped our energy more so because after the pass crossing we have probably mentally scaled down our intensity by half we had a great lunch of chicken sizzlers pizzas and yak steak doesn t this sound a bit ostentatious for a trek We rested in the afternoon and then took a walk in the market and bought some

    time frames There are no stops in between and pass crossing is a test of the heart and lungs while we ascend and a test of the knees as we descend We were up early today and after breakfast started our climb up the Renjo La This is a solid 2000 feet climb and at an altitude of 17500 feet can be really taxing Mentally and physically it is one step at a time and sometimes one wonders why we undergo this self torture by coming to the mountains year after year The feeling that we get after reaching the destination however explains it all It is pure exultation We reached the top of the pass at about 11 30 am and had the best views of Everest that we have ever seen The entire north and southwest faces and the west northeastern and south east ridges are visible and most importantly Everest appears as it is the tallest In fact from Kala Patthar Everest is slightly overshadowed by Nuptse The great Mahakalu Makalu was also visible in the distance We spent some time at the top and then descended almost a 1000 feet in half an hour followed by
