But since they are all trekkers, it would be fun joining along your trek and it won’t affect your trekking experience at all because of the pace of each trekker/groups.

Well, the tip for guide and other trekking staffs like porters and drivers is not mandatory but since they contribute their time apart from family to make you enjoy the best of your trip ensuring your safety and satisfaction, we recommend you to contribute some amount of tip for them.

There are mostly Tamang people, other ethnicities and almost everyone in this region practices Buddhism which is the reason you can see Monasteries, Chortens, Prayer flags, Prayer wheels, Mani walls and Mani Stones abundantly along the trails. 

Since you should be entering Langtang National Park and Shivapuri National Park, and because the region comes under a protected area, you would be requiring Trekker's Information Management System(TIMS) card, Langtang National Park Entry Permit and Shivapuri National Park Entry Permit for Langtang Valley Trek.

You should be walking up to 4,6r10m (Lauribina Pass) and the holy and spiritual lake is also at a high altitude of 4,200m which is the reason you should be physically and mentally aware than in some easy graded treks.

And above all, the holy and spiritual Gosaikunda lake and the Lauribina Pass at such high altitude is what makes this trek amazingly special.

It was already my another trek organized by Nepal Mountain Trekkers. Since arriving in Kathmandu we felt well taken care of, we had a shuttle service to the hotel. We stayed at Horizon Hotel, quiet and beautiful place for Thamel. When we sightseeing Kathmandu, everything was prepared to trek (permits, transport etc). This time our guide was Shiva who is profesional guide with a wealth of local knowledge. We could "only" enjoy our trip as we were sure that everything was well organized. I would definitely recommend Nepal Mountain Trekkers with frendly pofessional owner Ramesh Dhakal and wonderful guide Shiva and Daljit. Thank you so much Ramesh, Shiva, Daljit, Devaraj, Dhane, Sudip, Arjun. Hope to see you again ... soon :)

In november 2015 we met Mr. Ramesh Dhakal and our guide Daljit at the Horizon Hotel in Thamel Kathmandu. They are very friendly persons, like friends and we went on tour with Daljit and my husband, so we were three of us. We were 3 weeks on tour and had a great time with our guide. The lodges and whole trip was very good organized and with Daljit we had the advantage to learn a lot about Nepal and the Nepali's. We went in the houses, enjoyed family life and he showed us the most beautiful spots.We can recommend this organisation 110%. Enjoy!
