After ascending for regarding one and a half hour the walk becomes relatively straightforward till we reach the bottom of Renjo La. Now, a troublesome climb from here can take us to the primary pass out of the 3 high passes on the way. From the highest of Renjo La, we walk all the way down to the Third Lake (Gokyo Tsho).

As the trail steps down steeply so we need to walk very carefully as our legs are shaky and frequently get and fight in the rocky terrain.
