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.

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.
Me and my friend Matilde just finished the "Annapurna Base Camp Trek” with Gold Mountain Nepal Treks & Expedition in this October of 2014. Gold Mountain Nepal Treks provided us helpful, friendly and knowledge guide & Porters as well. Our guide “Navaraj” was really knowledgeable about the entire area, and everything related with the trekking.
All accommodation was also perfect in Kathmandu, Pokhara and trekking areas of Annapurna.
I give my highest recommendation to Gold Mountain Nepal Treks. Their prices are also very aggressive.
