A beautiful valley hike through forest at lower levels then up above the treeline with views of Langtang peaks and Nyakanga. Most people do this trek in 5 days but being older (l66 & 71) we organized it to do in 8 days which worked well. It provided for a nice pace and a chance to really experience the Tamang culture.
The trek route was beautiful but unfortunately we visited in wrong time and there were no views at all. We had a cool weather and lovely atmosphere but the views were not available. The rest was well. We can recommend Himalayan Leisure to other people.
