Spring brings blooming rhododendrons and lush vegetation, while autumn offers clear mountain views after the monsoon season.

We are confident totally to complete this trip. The guide and porters were great and the private jeep transfer from Kathmandu to syabrubensi and from Dunche to Kathmandu was safe. We spend one of the best moments in Langtang mountains for 10 day Langtang Gosainkunda lakes trek. Thanks a lot for making my trip just awesome.

Best company, professional guides, best experience.

October 25, 2016

My husband and I trekked to the amazing Langtang Gosainkunda scenic trek in October 2016 with Umesh our guide through Gokyo Treks and Expedition. Ammar organized everything for us with perfection. We stayed at Ammar’s home after arriving in Kathmandu. What a nice welcoming. We had an amazing time with our Trek guide Umesh who has almost 20 years of experience trekking all over the Himalayas in Nepal.

We had such an amazing trip. Pictures can not give back the natural beauty of the Himalayas. It was amazing to be in nature far away from civilization. The trekking was hard but it was well worth the effort when we reached the amazing Langtang Himalayas. All the villages had simple tea houses and plentiful food options.

I can not recommend enough Goyko Treks and Expeditions. Trip of the lifetime !!

Thank you very much, Ammar and Umesh for the amazing experience!
