Amazing Gokyo Lakes and Renjo La Pass trek experience
Nov 2022
We had the trip of a lifetime trekking in the mountains of Nepal. Ten of us from New Zealand arrived in Kathmandu to start our adventure with our guides Dawa and RD from Traveltimes Treks. Everything was well organised from our arrival, stay in Kathmandu, transportation, flights, food, drink and accommodation on our 16-day trek. Safety was paramount and Dawa and RD kept a check on all of us monitoring any signs of altitude sickness. No pressure was put on you to go faster than you were able, and you always felt safe and well looked after with one guide at the front and one at the back. With our great guides we got to enjoy the beauty and culture of Nepal and the people. Dawa is a man of great integrity, very knowledgeable and passionate, and we had complete trust in him. We arrived as strangers and left as friends. We would definitely recommend Dawa and RD from Traveltimes Treks. Lindsay and Sha… W, Palmerston North, New Zealand

Traveltime treks, in particular our guides, Dawa Tamang and Raksha Raj Tamang were a great team to introduce us to the beauty of Nepal. They are both very knowledgeable, capable, respected and experienced. I felt safe and taken care of despite some illness we had in our group. Changes in itinerary was managed very smoothly. Dawa also made sure we had rooms with great views, unlimited food and facilities throughout our hike. Rakhsha was great with the younger members in our group. I would highly recommend both of them.

Very nice time traveling with Dawa

Traveling in Nepal with Dawa is an excellent experience. He is familiar with the terrain, really passionate about the trip, know every single river, lake or mountain in the way.  Very experienced and responsible guide. Know’s all the risk the mountain contain (like weather, height sickness and etc). To conclusion, Dawa is a really nice man traveling with, and making the all experience of travelling Himalaya much happier. Ben Norman, Israel, Tel Aviv

I took part in the trek to Everest Base Camp in 2009. It was by far the best thing I’ve ever done. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful and extremely impressive, despite some pretty high bridges! Dawa was our guide and I don’t think we could have found anyone who knew more about the Himalayas. He was very informative and knew the names and stories of every landmark/peak/trail, and even where to find snow leopards. Altogether a trusty guide and a great guy. You won’t regret it!

Quite possibly the trip of a lifetime! Everest Base Camp was a challenging yet amazing trip and it was made all the better by Dawa and his team. He looked after my fellow colleagues and myself and made sure it was an enjoyable trek. At no point did I feel uneasy about undertaking such a tough trek. Dawa is a friendly, experienced and passionate guide who has years of experience of trekking in the Nepalese mountain ranges. He was a pleasure to be around and as a result of his help in organizing one of the best trips of my life, I now count him as a close friend. I would thoroughly recommend Dawa and his team to anyone thinking of visiting Nepal and wanting to experience the beautiful scenery on offer! Umesh Kumar, Sunbury-Thames, UK EBC Expedition

“I would highly recommend Traveltime Treks to anyone traveling to Nepal. I completed two treks with them and could not have been treated better. My traveling partner and I custom-tailored an itinerary that met our needs. As in most treks, there were changes due to unforeseen circumstances, but all were handled seamlessly by our guides. Dawa is experts in the trekking industry. “Jerry Galiley, USA



My trip to the Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar peak in December 2010 was among the most memorable treks I have ever undertaken. The extraordinary beauty of the Nepal Himalaya was visible everywhere, thanks to an unbroken spell of brilliantly clear weather. The entire trek of 12 days was extremely well managed and led by Dawa Lama Tamang of Traveltimes Treks Pvt. Ltd. Their in-depth knowledge about the country side and the peaks that loomed all around together with the unfailing courtesy and service of the entire Traveltimes Treks team of support staff rounded off this trek in the most enjoyable way possible. For those looking for a professional, hassle-free trekking experience of the first order, I strongly recommended Traveltimes Treks Pvt. Ltd., Kathmandu, Nepal. Aroon Raman, India

I always think of you and the wonderful trip whenever I hear about Nepal or see photos. I look forward to returning, hopefully with my daughters and possibly my wife. It’s hard to say when I’ll return, but it is constantly on my mind. Good luck with your company! Dr. Greg Blackman, USA
