Outstanding - best guide and porter ever!

(5/5)

We did the 15 day Lantang Gosaikunda Helambu trek. The good experience started with excellent communication and flexibility by Nava and his team particularly as the start was delayed by the closure of Kathmandu airport.

Gosainkunda Trek

(5/5)

We have just completed a 15 days trek to Gosainkunda. We had a most exhilarating trip - a highly stimulating experience. Our team of 9 porters, a guide and a cook were excellent. They took care of all our needs not only were they highly efficient, but also very lively and entertaining. Ram Chandra Ghising who was a wonderful organizer and Norbu Tamang our cook whose cooking was excellent and extremely inventive. The team as a whole took excellent care of us.
Thanks for a great and a memorable trip.
