Breathtaking Langtang Gosaikunda Trek

It was beautiful 10 days trekking this place in a company of Santa and Milan. They are professional, helpful and nice. The trek itself is just beautiful. You meet with the Nepali culture, talk to locals, climb mountains, drink a lot of masala tea, eat plenty of daal bhat and experience many new things and feelings.

Langtang trek

I went trekking in Langtang in Apr. Everything was perfect, stunning mountains, spectacular glaciers, beatiful rhododendrons (the national flower), as well as the guide trekking. Luckily I made a good choice of picking Pradeep Dahal as my trekking guide. He is experienced, sincere and honest that gives me confidence and makes me enjoy my solo trek.

Langtang trek

Had an amazing eight day trek in Langtang with guide Mansoon. Stunning scenery and lovely villages. The trek was challenging in areas but the pace made the hiking doable for most ages. This area is remote so there are no crowds on the trails and the guest houses are clean and very friendly. If you are coming to Nepal—definitely explore lovely LAngtang with Raj and his trekking company Thank you Raj for your oversight and hospitality as always. Mansoon you are a great guide!
