    NANCY BIGGS, United Kingdom - November 28, 2023

    We completed the 11 day Goechela trek on 20.11.23. Ashmita were fantastic from start to finish. The owner Subash was always available to speak to us in the months preceding our adventure - ready to answer all questions and to give us a clear idea of what we should expect from our trip. We had a fantastic team on the trek itself, led by our guide Sangay. He is an experienced mountaineer able to plan our days with great skill, finding the most beautiful spots to pitch our tent at each of our stops, providing clear advice about how to manage and minimise the effects of the high altitude. Our cook DB created three absolutely delicious and varied meals every day - difficult to imagine how he managed to rustle them up from the bags of raw ingredients that accompanied us up the mountain! The whole team was friendly and a joy to spend time with and we missed them all when our adventure finally came to an end. It is altogether a wonderful trip - the hard trekking is rewarded by stunning views of the mountains over many days. We were lucky to have beautiful clear blue skies each day. Most importantly, we made it to the top!

    Rebecca Gordon, Australia - April 18, 2023

    I just completed the 8 day Goeche La trek in Sikkim with my partner Ian. Sangay was our amazing and experienced guide. The trek was very challenging due to heavy snowfall. Sangay was amazing in his decision making, planning and belief for us to complete the trek. We had amazing clear views at Goeche La after two days of cloud and snow at Dzongri pass. Sangay and his amazing team ensured that we were always warm, comfortable and well fed. The food was especially good - The cook produced three course meals - delicious We even had a cake on our last day.. I am so appreciative to Sangay and his team for giving me the opportunity to complete this snowy challenge in the beautiful Himalaya.
