This was our second trek in Nepal, but offered now totally different views of Himalaya. Last year we did a trek to Annapurna base camp trek and that was just fantastic. This time we had six friends with us, so we were a team of 10: a guide, a helper guide and three porters. Lang tang Valley was a bit tougher than Annapurna taking us to higher elevations but also the views were spectacular walking along rivers, through rhododendron forests and jungles surrounded by snowy mountain peaks.
The lodges were modest and some nights quite cold, but we had warm sleeping bags and enough clothes on. During the day the sun made us warm. We had chosen the same trekking company, Advent Himalaya Treks because last year they gave us such an excellent service. Our super guide Ramesh Bhatta made the trek perfect.
He is a considerate, knowledgeable and friendly person encouraging us through sometimes tough trails. Ramesh team was just great, we felt that they even read our thoughts and helped us in every way. Back in Kathmandu we had a good time city tour eating well and shopping. we highly recommand to Adventure Nepal Eco Treks for any one need trekking information contact with Devi Baral!
Fantastic Holiday in Lang tang after horrible Earth quick 2015!
