Harry's review for another Icicles Adventure Treks and Tours Pvt Ltd tour

“Langtang Valley Trek was an excellent trek up the Langtang Valley to Kyanjin Gompa and Kyangin ri. The walk through refreshing rhododendron forests, deep cultural insights with panoramic views of Langtang Himalayan range were the best highlights of Langtang Valley Trek for me.”
Rui's review for another Icicles Adventure Treks and Tours Pvt Ltd tour
5 - Excellent
“This trekking is amazing. The only thing really bad is the road from Kathmandu to Syaprubensi, the starting point... 8 painful hours to drive 134 km. Prepare yourself for the road... it’s even worst that I can tell.
You will see different views... the first day maybe is the hardest one, always going up and down in the middle of the forest... but once in the kanjing ri point (4800 meters more or less) you will see that it worths the effort.
Some tea houses are very basic but you will be provided with the necessary to assure your personal hygiene... even if they don’t have hot shower you can always ask for a bucket of hot water and wash yourself every day. I suggest you to take with you an disinfectant spray for the tea houses bed clothes; some of them have bugs that can go inside your sleeping bag.
Maybe the most difficult thing is the toilet, if that is important to you... normally a latrine not so clean as you may expect, but remember that you are in an adventure so try to see it this way.
You will cross lots of porters in your way.. remember to give them priority in the way... they hard work deserves our respect and recognition... they are persons like we are.
And just one more suggestion: please be careful with the trash... I saw some empty cookies packets, empty bottles of water, cigarettes packets, sweets packets on the way (even sanitary pads)... so keep the trash with you until you find a bin... if we go there it’s because the nature is important to us so it’s our duty to protect it.
I wish you a good and safe trekking and really hope that you will be so happy as I was over there.”

“The trek was much harder than expected. We really enjoyed it but I needed to hire a horse to help climb the thousands of step.”
