Langtang Journey Reviews

Six family members and I went on the Langtang trek and it was life changing. Four of us are over 60...We felt we had a real Nepal experience. Our guides were wonderful and we have established long distance friendships.
I was very impressed with how organized everyone was, from Tek and Bishnu at the front end of the trip, to our guide, Satyaman, and our guides in training, Ramesh and Kasesh. They took really good care of us.
We loved our guides and guides in training. The itinerary provided a culturally rich experience and brought Nepal to life, while also connecting us to the nature of the himalayas. OneSeed was very accommodating and had AMAZING customer service.
