Langtang Gosaikunda Trek - 17 Days Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 2 reviews

I'm glad I chose this package! It is the most beautiful trail I have walked so far! The combination of the mountains, forests, river and waterfalls was just so overwhelming. It was not even crowed like the last one! Visiting the frozen Gosainkunda lake was the most beautiful experience of the trek. As always the trip was well organized by Sublime Trails! Loved it!

I traveled with Ram as my tour guide in Nepal on a ten-day trek in the Langtang region. He was very knowledgeable about the areas we walked through an extremely professional, ensuring that I was feeling ok and comfortable for the whole trek. However, the best thing was that he was easy and enjoyable to talk to. He talked to me a lot about the culture, people, and society in Nepal and gave me a real insight into this fantastic country! I thoroughly recommend Ram and his team!!
