  • Snow Leopard Land: Damodar Kunda, Saribung La & Naar-Phu

    On my fourth trip with Langtang Ri Trekking and Expedition we came as close to a snow leopard as never before: In the area of Damodar Kunda we spotted very clear and fresh tracks in soft mud and a field researcher later even presented us brilliant photographs of the gorgeous animal itself, which he was lucky enough to record only a few days earlier not far away from the village Phu. Also we were impressed of how little is eventually left from a blue sheep when the snow leopard is done with it.
    The remote and lonely beauty of the Damodar Himal range once again appeared simply amazing, as it already did last year during our successful expedition to mount Dhechyan Khang.
    Yet widely unknown is a new and rewarding trekking route that leads from Phu to Naar over two passes and thus constitutes an interesting alternative to the usual valley trail. From Naar pass (5400 m) on this route you can see the entire Annapurna range in the south including the famous Fish Tail, mount Himlung and its neighbouring ice peaks in the east and many remote summits of Peri Himal in the north.
    Langtang Ri Trekking and Expedition one more time provided excellent service and trekking organisation and or Sirdar and Guide, Lawang Tamang, managed our 22 days of trekking in a perfect manner.

  • Photography Tour

    This was our first trip to Nepal and it was certainly a memorable one. The photographic theme of the tour and the level of walking involved was ideal for us as we are interested in photography and we are both aged 70+. We greatly enjoyed three aspects of the tour: the culture and history, the natural ecosystems and the Himalayas. In terms of the first aspect, we had limited knowledge of Hindu gods and complex mythology and some background reading about this before starting would have enhanced our appreciation of the temples and shrines and their significance. A preliminary understanding of Buddism would also help. The visits to the three palace squares (Durbars) of the three former kingdoms in the Katmandu region were a highlight and it is here that a baseline understanding of the Hindu gods and mythology is valuable and enables a guide to elaborate on the details. The current political parliamentary arrangement and the state of the Nepal economy are particularly important to understand. The visit to the Boudhanath Stupa which is iconic for Katmandu is an important part of any tour. Having a light lunch at one of the elevated restaurants overlooking the Stupa provides a good view of the Stupa. A visit to a studio opposite where artists with various levels of skills of the painted Mandalas (circular holistic life images) is particularly interesting. Our visit to Chitwan and its ecosystems and river (headwaters of the Ganges!) included the peaceful canoe trip viewing Gharials, saltwater crocodiles and many native birds. The elephant ride through the forest is an interesting experience and we sighted rhino, deer, peacock, mongoose etc but no tigers. The elephant breeding facility with many baby elephants visible was also worth seeing. The bird watching and identification of species by the expert guide in Pokhara was exceptionally good. Viewing the Himalayas depends on the weather and our initial trips along rural roads to Nagarkot and Salangkot provided some nice views at dawn but not the high Himalaya peaks. A second trip to the latter under clear skies provided good views of the mountains. Later we took a 1-hour flight (Yeti Airlines, c.30 seater) around the Himalayas and with good weather this provided genuinely spectacular views of the Annapurna Range and this was a highlight of the entire tour.

  • Fabulous trek to EBC and stay in Nepal

    I was in a group of 5 family and friends for a 15 day period in Nepal -- 12 days on trek to Everest Base Camp, and 3 days in Kathmandu before/after the trek. The trek was certainly the major highlight - incredible scenery the whole way, aided by our fun, warm and experienced guide Pratap. He was a pleasure to be with through good times and harder times on the whole trip, and he obviously loves people, in addition to having a deep appreciation of nature.

    Another special aspect of the trip was the remarkable personal touch we experienced thanks to Pamfa (owner of Langtang) and her staff. From the time we arrived at the airport to the time we left, we were accompanied by unfailingly friendly and kind staff - guides, our tireless driver, the attendant/cook at Tokha Holiday House, and Pamfa herself, at her office in Thamel and at dinner one night. Above and beyond in terms of warmth and being treated like family.

  • Annapurna base camp Trek

    Had a great trek with Bishnu and Lomash. Would definitely recommend the Annapurna basecamp Trek with Langtang Ri. They were very accommodating with our needs and everything went smoothly.

  • Annapurna Base Camp, Temple & Historical Sites

    This was our first trip to Nepal and we were there for 3 weeks. Langtang Ri Trekking did a great job of organizing all the logistics so that we could relax and enjoy our time there; they provided guides, porters, & drivers, and took care of park passes, entry fees and hotel and trekking hostel bookings. 
    We trekked to Annapurna Base Camp, toured temples and archaelogical sites in Lumbini, visited the Ranimahal palace, hiked through Shivapuri park, and explored Bhaktapur Darbur square and other historical sites around Kathmandu. Our accommodations ranged from rustic trekking lodges to the beautiful Fort Hotel in Nagarkot. Special thanks to Dilip (our knowledgeable guide in Lumbini) and Hari (expert bird watching guide in Pokhara). 
    Pamfa and her staff made sure that we had a fun and memorable trip!
