Gosaikunda Pass Trek Review

Gosaikunda Lakes Trek

Rated 5 out of 5
March 5, 2022

We had a fantastic 7-day trek to Gosaikunda lake organized by Gokyo trek. Our itinerary was thoroughly planned, tying in all our wishes for a good price (airport transfer, lodging, and meals all included). Our guide, Bishnu, was great! He showed us the region and was happy to mix up the pace as we wished, – he even taught us yoga in the mornings and evenings which was great for sore muscles! The teahouse accommodation was perfect for the trek, and the trek itself had a nice mix of terrain and scenery. Although your legs may feel it afterward, I would highly recommend it.

We had a fantastic time on our trek organised by Gokyo. They listened to our requirements and put together our ideal itinerary for a good price. The trip was faultless, an easy transfer from the airport, a great route and good accommodation. However, the guide (Bishnu) really made the trek. He was fun informative and really good company. Returning to Nepal, I wouldn’t want to use anyone else, thoroughly recommended.

Langtang Gosaikunda lake Trek with Gokyo Agency

Rated 5 out of 5
August 24, 2019

It was another trip to Nepal that we visited last July with our polish friends. The trip was nice but some days were raining for some times but luckily we had a great view reaching Kyanjin Gompa, Lauri Bina la and Gosaikunda lakes.

So we had a great view of Langtang Panora including the shining Ganesh Himal. The staffs were super friendly and easy-going so we had no problem customizing the length of the day tour every day. Thank you Gokyo Treks Nepal as we will be returning to your beautiful land again in near future. Get connected with us on our Facebook and Whatsapp.
