“Set out in May 2017 for my first ever Himalayan trek. By good fortune I chose the GHT Langtang via Tilman Pass route. Highlights included the Game of Thornes like rhododendron forests and atmospheric pilgrimage site of Panch Pokhari. My favourite day started camping on a boulder field by the glacier just below the 5,300 Tilman pass. The walk over the pass delivered a truly spectacular vista of mountains front, side and rear before descending into the remote Langtang Valley. The trek down the valley took four days and we saw the after effects of the earthquake as we passed through alpine yak pastures, forests beside the mighty Langtang River and then near sub-topical jungle before arriving at Syabru Besi. The organisation throughout was excellent, the porters and Sherpas really helpful and the guides (led by Bikesh) were excellent. The campsites were well chosen and the equipment was in good conditions. The food was tasty, wholesome and in large portions. Most importantly the whole team, trekkers and support staff alike got on really well. All in all a wonderful introduction to Himalayan trekking. Thank you to our tour company.”
5 - Excellent
“The trail was incredible passing through steamy jungles as well as silent, imposing glacial terrain and remote. But the trail and its conditions were the only challenges we faced with the excellent leader and support team we had. Delicious meals with plenty of variety, comfy tents and high quality gear - everything, other than putting one foot in front of the other, is beautifully looked after for you.”
