Langtang-Gosainkund-Helambu trek

From 2 till 15 November 2019, I completed the Langtang, Gosainkund, Helambu trek, with Shambhu Tamang as my guide. As before, Himal Tamang of Visit Himalaya Treks provided excellent overall management and made all necessary permit and road travel arrangements. The trek itself was a wonderful experience, with Shambhu as an excellent companion, who made the trip special. The trek up to Tsergo Ri, just short of 5000 mtrs elevation, was the highlight of the trek! We were lucky to have a perfectly clear morning during the walk up from Kyanjin Gomba to the top! The trek from Kyanjin to Gosainkund took several days of thoroughly enjoyable walking and very pleasant stays in various lodges along the way. Walking over the Laurabina pass, over 4600 mtrs elevation, into the Helambu areas was another highlight. I highly recommend Visit Himalaya Treks, and guide Shambhu, if you also would like to experience this trek! November -2019.

Langtang Gosainkunda Lake Helambu Trek

Just back from the Langtang-Gosainkund-Helambu trek, organized by Visit Himalaya Treks. It was fantastic! We were very happy with guide Man Kumar and porter Kumar. Compliments for Himal and his team. They were accurate, reliable and communicative. By inviting us in his home, he made the attention very personal. Himal even brought us to the airport, five days after finishing the trek. Excellent service. We heartily recommend Visit Himalaya Treks! 20th Apr, 2012.

Marleen Timmers, From - The Netherlands

On recommendation booked with visit Himalaya Treks.
First contact was via the mail. What a service! Quick response and everything was arranged when I came to the agency. Together with guide Lok we did the tamang heritage trail and gosaikunda. This was totally super. Good combination between culture and nature. To bad that there are less toerist after the earthquake. Because the villages are still beautiful (different but still details left) and the Tamang people are lovely. The days varied from 5 to 6 hours. This was perfect because we had time in the afternoon to visit things or just to rest. Thank you Lok and visit Himalaya Treks. I would definitely make another booking in the future. Marleen Timmers from Nederland 29th Nov, 2017 Really nice people en amazing trekking.
