Reviews (Gosaikunda Trekking)
Fantastic 5 days short trekking to Gosaikunda
We did a very short trek in Nepal and that was trekking to Gosaikunda. It was well-organized by Base Camp Hike. Though it 5 days trek, we enjoyed it a lot with guide Nabaraj. We experienced Mountain views, pristine holy lakes, local culture, and lifestyle. I suggest to visit tourists if they want to do a short trek in Nepal.
