Langtang Helambu Trek

(5/5)

With this agency we did the Langtang trek and a part of the Helambu area trek. We had a guide and porter ,both very fine people.

The Langtang trek is very nice and had some very spectacular sight. ……………

Ramesh(the guide) and Raj Kumar(the porter) took very good care of us. Not only during the trek but also afterwards.

This agency also helps you with arranging things outside scoop of the trekking. We are very satisfied with the guide service and can highly recommend this agency. If we ever comeback to Nepal we surely arrange the trekking here again.
