A Typical day in the trail
Our day begins with a cup of tea or coffee in the morning. After freshening up we have our breakfast and gear up for our expedition. Gokyo Renjo Pass Trek requires a minimum of 4-7 hours of walk everyday so we have to plan our daily itinerary accordingly. After 2-3 hours of trekking we take a break for lunch somewhere in the trail (restaurants if available). We take frequent rest en route to rejuvenate our expedition. We also halt in many places to capture the scenic view of the Himalayas, beautiful rivers, landscapes, monasteries, cairns etc in our cameras. Our day’s trek ends once we reach our destination as planned in the itinerary. Once we arrive at the guest house, we take a brief rest, take shower and enjoy a light snacks with tea or coffee.

We will have ample time to chat with our crew members before going to bed. Dinner is usually followed by a next day’s itinerary briefings by our trek leader. You have all the good reasons to drink available locally made liquors. Finally you can catch up your bed for a good night sleep.

When to go (Best Season to Travel)
Autumn (Mid September-Mid December) and spring (March-May) are the best season for the Gokyo Renjo Pass Trek. The weather during the season is sunny and warm during the day that offers you to enjoy the magnificent view of the Himalayan range whereas the nights are chilling and cold and can fall to freezing in the higher elevations. Trekking during summer will be affected by rain but summer trek could be a boon of a keen botanist as the vegetations bloom in this reason. The trekking routes are always busy with trekkers during spring and autumn but during monsoon and winter the routes are not packed and crowded and you can have a great journey enjoying the scenic views.

Travel Insurance:
Travel insurance is highly recommended for trekkers who plan their trekking in the Himalayas. Gokyo Renjo Pass Trek is usually a safe expedition but it is always better to stay in a safe side. Travel insurance is mandatory while going for trekking, hiking etc in Nepal. Please make sure that your insurance policy covers personal injury, medical expenses, repatriation expenses, helicopter rescue, loss of luggage, etc. We strongly recommend that your policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. Please check with your insurance company that adventure activities and trekking above 3000m are covered by your policy. You must carry proof of insurance (i.e. your insurance certificate) with you during your expedition.

Meals and Accommodation:
We will arrange three or four star hotel for your accommodation (Upgradable upon request) in Kathmandu. During the Gokyo Renjo Pass Trek we provide the best available guest house which is called Tea house/Lodge. Tea Houses are like hotels that serve with hot showers, western foods and private rooms (twin sharing). Some guest houses are ordinary guest house with shared washing and toilet facilities and comparatively cheap in price. If you are travelling in a group, you will share a room with one of the group member with same sex. If you wish to stay single in a room then you have to let us know in advance and some surcharges are applicable in such arrangement. Please be noted that there are several guest houses that do not allow a single accommodation during the peak season so sharing the room with somebody becomes a compulsion. We will arrange your dinner and early breakfast in the guest house itself but the lunches will be arranged in some restaurants en route or sometime you need to have your breakfast on the way. Your stay at a local guest house helps you to be more familiar with local culture and traditions.

Breakfree Adventures is highly concerned about the standard of food and hygiene. We make sure that sufficient food is provided to our guest. A special menu will be offered so that you could choose the kind of food you like to eat. A cup of tea or coffee would be included in your meal menu. Our guide will always be there to assist you while choosing the food from the menu. The menu comes with comparatively high price due to the availability of food items and spices and extreme locations. Most of the tea houses serve you with delicious local cuisines along with international foods. You can get food items like biscuits, chocolates, cold drinks, soft drinks and seasonal fruits and veggies. Bottled water is always available in the tea house and restaurants or shops en route. You may ask your guide to fill the bottle with boiled water from the lodges and purify them with purification pills.

Fitness and Experience Required:
Our fourteen days Gokyo Renjo Pass Trek is moderate to strenuous trek suitable for passionate trekkers who have the ability to walk at least four to seven hours a day. Walking in higher altitude is rather challenging and it requires a lot of physical caliber. A good physique, positive altitude, self confidence and strong determination are the keys to success to successfully accomplish the Gokyo Renjo Pass Trek. Prior preparation like walking or jogging few hours a day before starting your trek is beneficial and it simplifies your expedition. Past hiking experience would be an asset but not mandatory for Gokyo Lake Trekking. Participants with chronic illness, physical disorder, heart, blood and respiratory disease are strongly advised to inform Breakfree Adventures before booking the trek. Consultation with a medical professional is highly recommended before starting your trekking adventure.

Acclimatization:
Breakfree Adventures’s fourteen days Gokyo Lake Trekking is planned with high degree of awareness about Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Trekking in the higher altitude too fast might cause a medical condition serious enough to cause death. The level of oxygen fluctuates as the height increases. For example, on the summit of Gokyo Ri (5357m/19,216ft), there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Our body requires many days to adapt the less-oxygen environment so the itinerary should be planned accordingly. Our itinerary is planned in such a way that it provides sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible trek plan is therefore very crucial to minimize the risk of AMS. Breakfree Adventures highly advises specially the person with known heart, blood or respiratory diseases to consult their medical professional before travelling. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorder are symptoms of AMS. Our leaders are well trained to administer the AMS. Breakfree Adventures’s itineraries are designed to avert the risk of AMS as much as possible.

Trekking Guides and Staff:
Trekking guides and staff plays a vital role in making a trek a successful one. We allocate trained, experienced, courteous and expert guides and crew members for every trekking endeavor. The staff and guide we deploy during the trekking have the utmost ability of operating your days in the mountains. The team will be lead by the best and professional guide from the industry. Our guides and staffs are carefully selected on the basis of their experience, expertise, guiding skills and aptitude. We deploy the guides and crew member who are familiar with the local culture and community and geographical distribution. Trekking guides of Breakfree Adventures are trained with the following trainings so that to enhance their potentials on medical issues, biodiversity, environmental issues and English language proficiency.

• Intensive Wilderness First Aid - KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Educational Project)
• Trekking Guide Training - Nepal Government's Ministry of Tourism & Civil Aviation department of Hotel Management and Tourism Training Centre of Nepal
• Eco Trekking Workshop and Adventure Meet TAAN (Trekking Agents Association of Nepal)
• English Language - KEEP(Kathmandu environment education project)
• Conservation and Biodiversity TAAN
• Rock, Ice Climbing and Mountaineering (Climbing leaders) Nepal Mountaineering Association

Our trekking guides speak English (Some may have the potentials to speak other foreign language like French, Spanish etc) adequate enough for the smooth communication but please consider that English is not our mother tongue. Our guides and porters know the routes and trails and are well aware of local culture and traditions.

Safety and Security:
We do not compromise on safety and security of our guests. We highly prioritize safety and security measures during the Gokyo Renjo Pass Trek. We have to understand that there are certain risks while travelling in higher altitude which you should consider before booking. Our trip operators constantly monitor their areas of operation and trekking trail and they would cancel or re-route a trip if they feel any destination is unsafe to travel.
