Everest High Passes

...we shouldn't finish without mentioning admiration for the endlessly busy Mr Lama. He like all World Expeditions staff we met, was very charming and knowledgable, this characteristic seems to be a requirement for employment with the company

Langtang & Gosainkund Lakes Trek

A fully supported camping based trek to the sacred lakes of Gosainkund in the Helambu region. Although only a day's drive from Kathmandu, this region is relatively isolated and predominantly inhabited by the Tamangs and Helambu Sherpas, who originated in Tibet just to the north. A highlight of our trek is a visit to Kyanjing Gompa, before we cross to Gosainkund. A trek in this region offers the opportunity to view traditional village life amid a picturesque alpine wilderness, and affords brilliant views of the mighty peaks of Langtang (7234m) and Ganesh (7446m), as well as a sprawl of endless 6000m+ summits. Although not a well known region of the Himalaya, a trek in the Langtang offers stunning views as well as cultural interaction and is a good option for those short on time.

traveller reviews

I had a really enjoyable time and it was good to see another part of Nepal...I very much enjoyed Bardia NP.... As always with WE everything went as planned my guide Jagdish was worth every rupee. It was also good to experience the tea house style of trekking and, while there are numerous advantages, I think that for me at least, tents are the future! (There did seem to be an endless amount of not very well people in the lodges that I have never experienced in tents and I can only eat so much rice and dal).
