Langtang – Gosainkunda Lake – Helambu Trek for 12 days.

We appreciated very much the Langtang – Gosainkunda Lake – Helambu Trek for 12 days with Norsang Lama and his team at High Camp Trekking. You have organized for us during our holidays in Nepal, end of October 2010. It gave us fantastic opportunities to see the Mt. Langtang Lirung (7234m) and to visit the Gosainkunda Lakes region. Then, we were able to walk down to Kathmandu, with very scenic views of the Helambu area.

Our group included 3 ladies and 6 gentlemen, all French citizens, between 30 and 60+ years of age. The way you had organized this trek was very professional: adequate balance between walking times and rest times, good selection of nice places to enjoy tea breaks, lunch and night accommodations, etc… In all circumstances, you always provided good advices and high altitude safety concern. Furthermore your team (5 porters) did a great job in supporting us during the trek. You were taken good care of us upon our arrival in Nepal and during our whole stay in Kathmandu.

If we have the chance to come back to beautiful Nepal for another trek, we will for sure get in touch with you and your team to help us organizing it.

We found our guide, Norsang Lama, on Internet.

Hi everyone also,

During spring 2010, I decided with a friend to do a trek in the Langtang Valley – Gosainkunda Lake – Helambu.

We found our guide, Norsang Lama, on Internet.

With his help, everything was planned and organized perfectly. From the first day at the Airport to the end of the trek and the visit of Kathmandu, his advices were very helpful. He is a very friendly person and knows a lot of things about politics, Buddhism, wild, and Nepal in general.

With his help, we could climb Tsergo Ri 5000 summit without experience of high altitude and talk to Nepali people in the villages.

I strongly recommend you to contact him if you want to go to Nepal, and I hope I’ll see him again next time I want to do a trek!

Thanks again to him and to the porter (Shyam): you were both fantastic and we only have wonderful memories of this trip!

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you want more information!

PS: Here is the video of our trek:


Norsang and the porter he uses (Karma) were fantastic…

I also used Norsang for my trek this March 2010. This was the first time I had used a guide or even been to Nepal and I must admit I was nervous about handing over a pile of cash to some total stranger! But, both Norsang and the porter he uses (Karma) were fantastic… they took care of all my needs, they are especially friendly and taught me a lot about the local culture – even how to play some of the various card games they all played.

We completed Gokyo Ri, Cho La Pass, Kalapattar and EBC. This was a difficult trek for me as four days before flying out to Kathmandu I was back in hospital with a knee problem having injections etc – I couldn’t even walk around the local park at that stage. They created a bespoke itinerary to take account of his and showed great patience with me and we had many laughs together.

They made the trek possible and ensured I had a fantastic time. Again a big thanks to them both. Norsang, His brother and father run a typical small but high quality business together.

If anyone requires any more information then feel free to send me a DM.

Recommendation of Norsang Lama from French visitors …

Nous avons fait deux treks organisés par Norsang Lama, le premier au Kangchenjunga en 2003 et le second au Dolpo en 2009.

Norsang est un guide très fiable que je recommande vivement. Il ne parle pas français mais communique très facilement en anglais ; il est sympathique, organisé, discret, attentif aux besoins des personnes qu’il accompagne.

Il adaptera l’itinéraire à vos envies particulières, il organise des camps en tente aussi bien qu’en lodge. Il saura vous faire découvrir des régions peu visitées, mais également les grands treks classiques. Il s’occupe des éventuelles réservations des vols intérieurs. Ses devis sont précis et ses tarifs très intéressants.

Si vous souhaitez des informations le concernant, vous pouvez me contacter par mail :

This guy made my trek.

Hi everyone,

I recently hiked the Annapurna Circuit with a great guide, Norsang Lama. I was a solo traveler, and it was because of him that my trip was so incredible. He was extremely friendly with both me and the locals, many of whom he knew already, his memory was like an almanac, and he treated me like a king –he made sure I would get my tea first! His English is great, he’s very professional at what he does, and he puts YOU first.
