We were guided by Nima Lama who works for Sangrila Trekking and he took excellent care of all our needs especially when we were affected by the 2015 earthquake. Both treks were fabulous and so beautiful. Although both areas were badly... More

Your trekking to the lake Gosaikunda will lay through a couple of exciting places. You can take a local bus from Kathmandu. We did. Our tickets costed 350 rps per person. It was not the most comfortable drive in my life, therefore, I recommend you to reserve a seat. The bus is going to be full. After 7 hours of... More

No words to explain this much Natural Beauty. Must go place! Beautiful Mountains along the way. This lake lies at the height of 4300 meters above the sea level. Very adventurous and sometimes scary paths but worthy.

A bus ride from Balaju (Kathmandu) will take you to Dhunche (in Rasuwa district). Buses leave in the morning and you'd want to check timings prior to your travel. There are very basic lodgings in Dhunche which is the last stop for vehicles. Here is where the trek starts. Alternative route starts from Sundarijal in East Kathmandu. Avoid travel plans... More
