    Memorable 7 days Langtang Valley trip with Base Camp Hike

    Rated 5 out of 5

    In September 2019, we went Hiking to Langtang with Base Camp Hike. It was memorable hiking. Because we got everything so perfectly.
    We contacted this agency because we had an excellent experience of their services from previous treks(Poon Hill Trek). The trip was perfectly organized and we enjoyed every minute of it. We were lucky with good weather. On this trek, the guide was Som Shrestha and Porter was Saroj. Guide Som is excellent, knowledgeable, friendly, and has a good sense of humor. I suggest to all to book any trekking in Nepal with Base Camp Hike.

    Amazing trek with great guide and Company

    Rated 5 out of 5

    We had made a 10 days trek combining Tamang Heritage and Langtang trail. We found this company while search on Google. Before booking, we had many conversations through WhatsApp regarding the trip. Jayaram(owner) responded to our inquiry very promptly. It impressed me very much. We had a very responsive guide, Kamal, and Porter Dipendra. Both of them are very honest and professional. Nonetheless, we had great weather while hiking. So all in all, I highly recommended Kamal as Guide and Base Camp Hike Company.
