The Langtang Trek was perfect for us! We knew it would be: from the information from your website and from email communication with Sangita, we felt very prepared for the trip after meeting you on Day 1.
We had the best experience trekking up to Kyanjin Gompa, with excellent help from our wonderful guide Pradip and porter Prakas. I think we were extra lucky by being the only two people on this tour, as it became a private trip for us. Pradip was looking after our needs every step of the way, and always going beyond expectations in caring for us. The entire time we felt like a King & Queen! They even woke extra early for us to walk out for a sunrise view of the Himalayas near Kyanjin Ri and brought extra snacks along for us. We took this photo that morning:
We’re already considering what our next Nepal trek might be, and will be thinking of Himalayan Glacier Trekking for that too.
Nepal is increasingly becoming a travel, trek and meeting hub in the South Asia region. After ending of the 10 years Civil War, Nepal has become even more popular travel destination. A recent Global Peace Index says that Nepal is the second most peaceful country in the South Asia. The Australia and US-based Institute of Economic and Peace’s ranking shows that when it comes to peace, Nepal is far more ahead than its neighbors like India, Sri-Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Nepal is even ahead of her northern neighbor China.
That’s one of the reasons why Nepal received a record number of tourists last year. Not only the tourist stay but the average number of days spent by tourists has also increased to a 7-year high in 2011. The trekking route in the Everest, Annapurna, and Langtang region also received increased number of tourist arrivals. The number of mountaineers and the number of their stay also rose in that year.

A short travelogue I put together after a trip in 2004. There is no boring dialog, but, in its own way, it speaks volumes about being there. NEPAL- a wonderful place with great people and a rich culture, not to mention majestic mountains!
Go there if you can. You are sure to have a fantastic time.
Drop me a line if you have questions about travel there. I’ve been quite a few times- including Bhutan (and I’ll post a video on Bhutan later). Be glad to help.
Ms Conny and Mr Patrick arrived in Nepal on 9th February 2007 and did several treks and tours in Nepal and Tibet. First two days they spent in Kathmandu for preparation and adjustment and they flew to Lukla from where Everest Base Camp trek start. After 17 days great Everest Trek they returned Kathmandu. After 3 days rest in Kathmandu they started Langtang Circuit Trek. They did exciting two weeks trek is known as the “Trekkers Paradise of Nepal” because it offers some of the most captivating cultural encounters and exceptional diversity of scenery available in Nepal After unbelievable Langtang Circuit trek they started AROUND MANASLU. This trek around Manaslu is a true classic traveling into one of the most remote regions of Nepal. Many consider it to be the best trekking route in all the Himalayas. This Challenging trek is spectacular, both geographically and culturally. Everest Base Camp and Langtang Circuit Trek they did lode to lodge trek but this trek they did full bard tent to tent camping trek.
Before they went to Lhasa overland tour they went 3 days Chitwan National park for jungle safari and they did fantastic Elephant safari. Royal Chitwan National Park, the oldest National Park in Nepal, is situated in the sub-tropical inner Terai lowlands of South-Central Nepal. The Park was designated as a World Heritage Site in 1984.
Himalayan Glacier Trekking organized their 5th trip Kathmandu to Lhasa overland tour. The drive from Katmandu to Lhasa over spectacular Passes and revealing views of the majestic Himalayas, takes seven days over the “Friendship Highway”. The drive is well worth it as you encounter some enchanting Buddhist monasteries, highest mountain of the world (Mt. Everest) and remote villages untouched by modern civilization. While approaching the city you will be able to notice the Potala Palace, a vast white and ochre fortress that dominates the Lhasa skyline, en route we will stop for one night in Everest Base Camp (Ronbuk). Beside the Everest Base Camp, the will by pass through the major highlighted places of Tibet, Nyalam, Shigatse & Gyantse the historical seat of Tibetan power and the location of the tombs of previous Dalai Lamas, the Potala Palace has been reduced to serve as a symbolic feature for Tibetan aspirations.
