This time we made the Manaslu with Tsum valley, we have booked the necessary guide and porters at Gokyo Treks and Expedition. From the beginning there was an excellent communication with Ammar, the director, and everything was set up within a few days .
Arriving in Nepal we stayed two days at Ammar`s homestay. Then we were introduced to our guide Kamal, who is a very reliable and funny person, he made our trip to one of our best experiences and we did the Larke la pass after Tsum valley without any problems. The whole trek is fantastic, the scenery and nature couldn`t be more beautiful. I can recommend Gokyo Treks and Expeditions without any doubt and I am sure we would like to have Kamal as our guide the next time we trek in Nepal. – Markus Gangeurwurger and team, Heidelberg, Germany
