Gosainkunda track and celebration drinks

13th September, 2023

I had such a great experience hiking the Gosainkunda lake. From th start it felt very trusted, and that was the reason I booked with them. Everything was organized very well, the guide was very professional and friendly. The even did send my mom some pictures and updates because I didn't have internet access in the mountains. When I came back from this amazing track we even got some drinks together to celebrate the birthday of the owner Subas. All in all a great experience!
