One Review to “Langtang Valley Trek”

    • Šarūnė B

    I would recommend Himalyan Summit without hesitation. We researched a great deal about the Langtang Valley Trek before putting our money down, and never once regretted our decision. The organization was absolutely faultless, the communications were excellent, and our guide (Prakash Kapri) was brilliant. We saw many other guides, and heard many first-hand tales regarding other companies, and I really don’t believe that we could have picked a better partner.
    Highly recommended!
