I recently completed the Ganesh Himal and Pangsang La Pass trek with Adventure A One Trek and I am so thankful for the amazing experience. Owner Ajeeb Bhatta was so professional, knowledgeable and generous throughout the entire trek. The guide was so helpful and encouraging and the porters were amazing. We were provided with excellent food and accommodation, which made the trek so enjoyable. The scenery was breathtaking, especially at the Pangsang La Pass. I would highly recommend this trek to anyone looking for an adventure.
