The Valley is pretty isolated, and this was one of the things that I noticed about the trek. The valley and the villages were quite far from each other, and that was the best part of the trek for me because it gave me a chance to enjoy the long drive and hikes through lovely forests and rivers and go over exhilarating suspension brides! The Langtang Valley Trek is a beautiful trekking experience, and I had the best time trekking in the valley, watching the views of the mountains and becoming a part of the beauty of the nature that this place has, even if it was for a limited amount of time. The natural beauty of this place is the best part of the trek, and also, the visit to the cheese factory was also pretty exciting! I loved tasting the cheese, and they even gave me complimentary blocks of cheese to take home, it was quite lovely! The whole trekking journey is the best thing and I absolutely enjoyed the whole scenarios during the trek. The hike to the monastery was quite attractive, and the rivers and the little streams that we came across the trek were all lovely to see and experience. Langtang Valley Trek was made even more amazing by our guide, Baban, who was a charm to be around and he helped us out a lot throughout the trek. It was all done in a fair and reasonable price as well, and I appreciate it very much!

I was picked up from the airport by Rajendra, the guide, and was then taken to my hotel, from where I started my trekking journey of the Langtang Valley. It was beautiful, and I really enjoyed it. The most stood-out aspect of the trek for me would definitely be the culture and the lifestyle of the people in that area. I mean, the natural beauty itself is quite wonderful and amazing, but, for me personally, I loved the whole experience of the people and talking to them and hearing their stories. The visit to the monastery there was enlightening and I learned a lot about the cultural aspects of the valley. I liked their hassle free day to day life and it’s a proven commodity for me really, that this is the kind of hassle free life is the one I would like to lead once I am old and retired! A life in valley among the Himalayas would be the ultimate dream-come-true for me! But, for now, I was satisfied with just visiting this paradise. The very atmosphere at the valley and the trekking journey has a life of its own, and its tranquility is spell-binding. Nepal Hiking Team, as expected, delivered the best services to me, and all of the proper arrangements were all done brilliantly. They did a wonderful job with the trekking journey and I enjoyed every moment of it!

I had Nepal Hiking Team make a customized itinerary for me for the Langtang Valley Trek. And everything was done all in accordance to my convenience, and that is one of the many features I loved about Nepal Hiking Team. The guide that provided to me for my Langtang Valley trip was also professional and helped us along the trek very much. Everything was done very smoothly, without much hassle and bother. I did not have to worry about anything; the people from Nepal Hiking Team took care of everything, like the accommodations, and the porters and the equipment. As a result, I was left to enjoy the trek and its sceneries without having to constantly worry about anything else. The trek itself was amazing, and I loved every moment of it. I made many acquaintances throughout the trek, with the local trekkers as well and other trekkers along the journey, and it was simply wonderful. This is truly a once in a life time opportunity to learn about exotic lands and the valley of Langtang definitely takes the cake on this one! The beautiful views of the mountains are utterly ravishing and the natural beauty of the place is just wow! I don’t even know how to describe it in words really! The vast pasturelands and the sight of horses and yaks just grazing on those serene grasslands is something that’s straight out of a wonderful Studio Ghibli movie, it was so pretty! The whole place reminded me of “Howl’s Moving Castle”; it was just so reminiscing of the scene between How l and Sophie with the daffodil flowers swaying gently in the wind. Langtang Valley Trek made me feel like I was in that feature film! So, yeah, definitely check the place out and Nepal Hiking Team definitely has my approval from the trek because of their consistency and the services that they provided.
