We did sandakhpu - phalut trek returned via Gorkhey - Timburey - srikhola with our young kids. Sangay was a fantastic guide and was very resourceful. His associate Tenzing was amazing too. We were little worried about weather when we started trek in rain from Chitre. Fortunately it cleared up next day and opened a lot of beautiful views and colorful rododendruns all along the way up from Tumling. View of himalayan range from Sandakhpu was awesome, we were very lucky that sky was clear till about about 7 AM. Best part of trek was from Sandakhpu to Phalut. Beautiful green meadows, rodos and views of wonderful valleys all along the way. I suggest dont return from sandkphut but continue onward till phalut. Ashmita staff made it very enjoyble for us.

We did an overnight trek with Ashmita Trek & Tours on 10-11 September, 2016. We organized the trek with Subash Tamang, Managing Director of Ashmita Trek & Tours, who was accommodating, pleasant and straightforward to deal with. Our trekking guide, Kunzang Sangay Bhutia, was outstanding. He knew a lot about the local culture and we visited a fascinating Buddhist temple at the start of the trek at Chitrey. We were two women in our 50s and I struggled a bit with the altitude, but Sangay was able to tailor the trek to our fitness levels. He was very patient and went above and beyond in helping us every step of the way, including bringing us hot tea at 6 a.m. on the Sunday morning at our overnight lodge in Tumling. We walked from Tumling to Jaubari on the Sunday morning and visited the charming Indira lodge for tea and biscuits and then back to Tumling for lunch. On Sunday afternoon we walked uphill from Tumling to Tonglu and then downhill to Dhotrey, which was the end of our trek. The weather was rainy and misty in September so we didn't get a view of Everest or Kangchenjunga but we enjoyed every minute of the trek!
