Gosaikunda/Helambu Trekking – February 2018

Hi there!

I’ll be trekking to Gosaikunda lake in the Langtang region of Nepal at some time during February 2018. My dates are flexible, as I’ll be in Nepal from January to March. I’ve found a guide to travel with, but I’d love to have others to trek with as well! If you have a guide in mind, I am also flexible on that.
I’m 23 years old, and grew up hiking and backpacking in Alaska. Now I live in Seattle, Washington. I’m relatively experienced, however I don’t have much experience at altitude, so I definitely plan on taking my time.
Please reach out if interested!

Cheers!
