Federica C Review fromFederica C Federica Citaly

After we had visited two offices that weren’t really interested in selling a tour to us, we found Nabins office. He made us the best offer and also recommended the Langtang trek, the one we didn’t really know about before (we asked for Helambu and Gosainkunda) he was really caring and took so much time to inform us about the trek, including the Langtang. He told us that our guide would first see how fast we walk and then adapt . First, we wanted to go hiking for 10-12 days but after Nabins recommendations about Langtang, we did 16 days which had been the best decision ever! Ram was a great guide and Djiben a great porter!! Thank you so much for everything! They were so caring and did so much! No additional costs, always provided the best rooms and made our trekking so comfortable! The trekking was perfectly organized and even when we had two rest 1,5 days cause I was sick, we had the time to climb two peaks in Langtang and stay there two nights and made it back in time!
Thank you so much Ram, Djiben and Nabin for this unforgettable stunning adventure! Hope to see you and book with your office again soon! Christina
