My husband and I trekked to the amazing Langtang gosaikunda scenic trek in October 2016 with Umesh our guide through Gokyo Treks and Expedition. Ammar organised everything for us with perfection. We stayed at Ammar’s home after arriving in Kathmandu. What a nice welcoming. We felt like family.
We had an amazing time with our Trek guide Umesh who has almost 20 years 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 the 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 plentyful 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 ! – Esther Deak, Melbroune Australia.
