Dudh Kunda Trekking

Dudh Kunda (name of a lake) Trekking is placed in Everest Region but lots of people are unknown about the trek. Dudh Kunda Trekking is a off the beaten trek with breath-taking views of Mountain panoramas. Dudh kunda Trekking route begins from Jiri where another trekking named Everest Classic Trek (Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek) also starts.

The trial is less touristy and depends mostly in camping lodging because there are not enough hotels/tea-houses. Gold Mountain Nepal Treks guides you to Dudh Kunda [Milky Lake] Lake which is located in front of Numbur Mountain.

Dudh Kunda Trekking is also a minor altitude comparing between other camping treks. Every year in the month of August, there is a cultural festival in Dudh Kunda Lake by both of Hindu and Buddhist peoples. Another major highlight of this trek is Pikey Peak which is situated at 4100 m offers you wonderful views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Makalu as well as other several Himalayan peaks.

Some other times, operational complication may occur which is more possible to happen in Everest Region- Kathmandu – Lukla – Kathmandu flight, Annapurna region- Pokhara – Jomsom – Pokhara flight, Dolpa, Simikot , Jumla region etc. As these flights have some problem with fixed schedule, it is also suggested to carry extra money for food and accommodations. Trekking in the remote areas, especially during unusual season, you’re advised to keep extra days to prepare with some delays and avoid frustrating result.

Electricity Crisis Problem in Nepal

It is difficult to told you that Nepal has an electricity problem because Nepal is 2nd richest country in water resource but it is true Nepal still facing the problem. It means there is electricity off for some hours in day and night time. Most of the hotels in Kathmandu, Pokhara and other cities are possible to have no battery backup. In that case Air condition may not work and, sometimes, TV and other electric utensils may not run. Some hotels have possible to run the TV and AC as well. But, only few of them are lies in this standard category.

So, be organized for this while you are traveling in Nepal.  For that situation, we suggested you to bring the flashlight with extra batteries.

Can I buy/rent equipment in Kathmandu

Yes, you can do that but it is not actually required to spend large amount of your money to buy extra equipment and clothing earlier to your trip because most of the trekking equipment can be hired from Trekking shops within Kathmandu. Most of the gear is locally contrived. Some Chinese equipment are possible to be more expensive but qualitative. You can take Sleeping bag and down jacket easily on rent.

We will display all the necessary equipment you need on the second day of your arrival.

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!

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

Everest Base Camp Trek - Oct-2014

I trekked with Gold Mountain Nepal Treks to Everest Base Camp in October-2014. It was my first alone abroad trip but Gold Mountain Nepal Treks made it so easy to me by providing airport pick-up/drove and hotel accommodation as well. The trek was so fantastic along with all the staff of this company. Guides to porters, everyone was so helpful and friendly.

Definitely it would be one of the best experiences of my lifetime and I recommend Gold Mountain Nepal Treks to those who are looking for trekking in Nepal.

Thank you.
