Trek in Langtang Valley – easy booking with GLOBAL TREKS & EXPEDITION


My friend and I just walked into the office (World Favour Travel & Tours) from the streets of Thamel and asked for help to find a trek in the Langtang Valley. We had not booked anything in advance and we wanted to trek for approximately 6 days in the Langtang area, and from that they were able to propose a plan. The entire office were very nice when we came in. It was very easy to fix the trek, and two days after we would be on a bumpy bus on our way to Syafrubesi!
The price for the trek was reasonable.
Unfortunately, my friend and I got sick from the stomach flu in the mountains but our guide Krishna was very patient with us and made us a new, short route for our sick bodies and managed to stay for an extra day in the mountains.
The English is not perfectly spoken as stated, but we managed to communicate and again, they were so helpful.
Our guide Krishna was very helpful with talking to the locals and order the food for us.
It was really great how easy it was to make this tour a reality from one day to another in Kathmandu, without planning anything from home (but packing trekking boots).
