Reviews for Remote trekking holidays in Nepal


review 31 Oct 2010

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The varied terrain in the Langtang region & climbing a peak.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

This is a wonderful region to trek in, you will see a lot of variety and meet wonderful local people along the way.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

I feel it benefited local people as we stayed in lodges owned by local people. Unfortunately has a negative effect on the environment as some lodges are still using fire wood - next time I will not stay in these lodges.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The holiday was a good combination of trekking which was some times challenging and sometimes easier. It was a quiet route so not ruined by over crowding. The scenery was exceptional and weather was wonderful. The guides and porters provided by this company were professional and a pleasure to trek with, they always ensured we got great rooms with wonderful views. The company itself was professional and provided good information prior to departure, unfortunately however, I was not happy with some additional charges incurred.

Thank your for your comments. Regarding on your comment on lodges using firewood, at the lower elevation most of the lodges use firewood because they can use damage trees etc from the forest, the local government never allow cutting the tress since the Langtang national park is protected by the government and army. Regarding your comment on some additional charges by our company, I am little unclear about it. We always provide information on what includes and excludes so I am sure you were informed about these thing before your trip departure. Normally drinks are always excluded in our trip. We always try our very best to maintain our high standards even at the remote area like Langtang and Helambu.
