My husband and I trekked to the amazing Langtang gosaikunda to Helambu scenic trek in November 2016 with kamal 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 had an amazing time with our Trek guide who has almost 12 years experience trekking all over the Himalayas in Nepal and Tibet.
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 and Lauribina la. All the villages had simple lodges with great varieties of foods.
I can not recommend enough Goyko Treks and Expeditions. Trip of the lifetime !!
Thank you very much Ammar and Kamal for the amazing experience ! – Heiner Uwe, Dusseldorf, Germany.
