Jomsom Trek was something we didn’t regret and we kept recommending to our friends! Jomsom Trek serves to enhance your trekking experience! We had Lakpa as our guide and he was a great guy! Teahouses were settled the moment we hit the teahouses as Lakpa arranged it well with them. He also recommends the best timings for certain parts of the treks or views. He was also very flexible when we wanted to change up the itinerary too!
