Ghorepani Poonhill Trekking-Aug-2015

I would say this for sure is one of the most beautiful experience I've ever had. Bishnu is such a nice, sweet and well organized person. As a solo female traveler, it's quite a bit nasty to made such decision to trek during the raining season especially after massive earthquake. Luckily I stayed at a nice and decent hotel where I almost could made myself at home, and the building, the places and all the stuff I worried about really didn't effected by the earthquake. Thanks again Bishnu for all of your effort, and hopefully I could go ABC next year or 2017. I'll see you then!

Chisapani-Nagarkot Hiking -Jan-2015

Chisapani-Nagarkot Hiking of Jan-2015

We had a great time in Nepal by Chisapaani-Nagarkot Hiking with “Gold Mountain Nepal Treks”. Unexpectedly the weather was also very clear in mid January. Magnificent views of the Himalayan ranges were seen from the top of Nagarkot Hill. The weather was excellent and it was a bit cold. Our guide was very helpful & friendly. We haven’t any complain to the company “Gold Mountain Nepal Treks” & Mr. Bishnu (Director of the company), everything were managed as capably and enjoyed the hiking. We are very satisfied with these services provided by the Company. We give you all an idea to trek in Nepal with “Gold Mountain Nepal Treks” for reasonable prices & standard services.

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking - Dec-2014

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

From 20th of December 2014 to 5th of January 2015 we went spent some gorgeous weeks trekking in the Annapurna region. First, we hiked to Poon Hill which rewarded us with a very nice sunrise. Then, we continued our trekking to the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC). Both at the ABC and on the way to and from it, we were blessed with amazing sunsets and sunrises. We even saw monkeys and eagles. Views were spectacular and the weather was great.

The organization of the trek was immaculate. All transfers (Kathmandu airport – Hotel – Pokhara– Kathmandu Hotel – airport) were perfectly organized. In addition, both the guide and porter did a great job. They were very flexible and always agreed when we wanted to change the program. This allowed us to reach the ABC two days earlier than planned and gave us more time to visit additional places when going down. We also paid a visit to hot springs which was very nice. In sum, we recommend Gold Mountain Nepal Treks & Expedition as a reliable trekking agency which is very eager to comply with the customers’ wishes.

Best regards,

Werner and Heidi
