Awesome Trek. Awesome guides.

100% 5 star based on – 208 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

We did a trek through the Langtang region called the langtang Panoramic Trek – absolutely amazing views. Landscape changes frequently from rice fields to waterfalls to snow capped mountains. Our trek was led by Ram who did a fantastic job teaching us about the history of the region and mountains. He knew the area so well and always knew the best tea houses to stop at for food or lodging. I would highly recommend Ram and the Gokyo Trek team to any planning a trek in Nepal. – Corina Schreiner, Berlin Germany.
