The Tamang Randonnees Treks is a group of people that I will remember for quite a long time. Its a personalized trip with a caring family. The Tamang family is able to make you live the Nepali reality as if you were one of them. A perfect and unforgettable trip. Thank you Sonam for those 3 weeks.
Second time for me with Tamang Randonnées Treks. Again an unforgettable experience in the Lang Tang valley. Amazing summits! We very much liked Sonam and his team, very flexible, patient, open-minded ! Thanks
My boyfriend and I did a trek in Nepal with Sonam and Babu .
We had an amazing week with them. The trek was the highlight of our stay in Nepal. We exchanged a lot with Sonam and Bhujung, also learned a Nepalese song which helped us to overcome the rather difficult Nepalese dish ! They were always smiling and very attentive to us! We will not forget this trek and we wish them the best!
