Langtang valley ,Gosaikunda , Helambu trek with Bharal Adventure

Arjun and uncle porter, they are the best! First, Arjun was very responsive online, he answered to all my questions regarding the preparation for the trekking. He took good care of us during our trekking. Arjun even brought a first aid kit. Together we explored the Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu trek. Aside from being a professional mountain guide, Arjun explained the plants and cultures of Tamang. He taught us a few Nepali words. He also made sure we were all well fed and well prepared during the whole trip. He was also very efficient with all the permits and paperwork for the national park. We felt so relieved and stress free with Arjun as our guide.
