I immensely enjoyed my Langtang Valley trek with Escape Himalaya, it was one of the best experiences of my life. Langtang Valley is beautiful and my journey there on the trek was one of the most enjoyable moments of my life. Thank you to Rajendra for being the best that he could throughout the trek, as he was very helpful with me. His care and professionalism made the trek into a care-free journey on my part. I was granted very good services and Escape Himalaya’s fast and prompt correspondence with my mails and their concern for the trek and my well-being was aptly appreciated. EH is on my recommendation for everyone who wants to have a trekking experience that has the best people and the best care. Extremely grateful to Escape Himalaya and everyone involved in making my trek comfortable.
Langtang Valley Trek is the best trekking journey that ranks right on top among all my trekking journeys I have gone through. Driving from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi was also pretty and filed with sights of forests. Even this short ride on the road was adoringly pretty and I had a sense of nostalgia for my childhood when I had the ride because of the atmosphere. Everything about Nepal, in my opinion, is like that- it seems like everything is shrouded in a mist of the past, making it an extremely nostalgic place to be. The isolation of the villages and small settlements on the Himalays make it even more so. Nepal is interesting because it looks like even though the capital is one of the most crowded places I’ve been in, the remaining remote places haven’t really been touched with modernization. Langtang valley was like that. The peaceful Kyanjin Gompa at Langtang provided such a spiritual upliftment, i stayed extra hours there just to soak up the tranquility. I really like Nepali people as well, their warm hospitality is something that is exclusive to the country, their warm smiles and the little children’s red cheeks and mischievous demeanor brings a smile to my face every time I think about it. They always asked for chocolate!
Thank you Escape Himalaya for this journey 🙂
