Lila had arranged the trail perfectly :
everything we asked for, a custom-made trip.
Whether it was possible to make a teahouse trekking to the Gosainkunda-lakes en the Langtang-valley, followed by a tent-trekking to Paldor Base Camp and the Tiru Danda?
No problem. And the price turned out to be very reasonable as well.
Lakpa Sherpa was our guide for over 3 weeks. He seemed to know every path and every mountain. We always got the most beautiful rooms (the rooms with a view) in the best lodges.And with Sandjib Gurung, our young porter, we always had fun.
During the first week we had amazing views of the Himalaya, from the Annapurnas, over the Manaslu and the Ganesh Himal to Langtang. From our room, we could even enjoy the sunset and sunrise in this magnificent landscape.
During the following week, we hiked through the Langtang-valley to Kianjing Gompa. There we climbed the 5000m high Tsergo Ri. The next morning, we walked into the desert valley, up to Langisha Karka. That were fantastic days.
Week 3 : the tent-trekking with a staff of 11 people (for just the two of us!).
They prepared delicious food and we slept in excellent Swiss Vaude-tents.
Unfortunately, Jan fell during a hike and dislocated his shoulder. The helicopter-rescue was arranged as quick as possible. Lila even joined the helicopter to pick us up. He took care of everything in the hospital, and later on in the hotel. (Again 1000times thanks)
This was our second trip to Nepal. Again, we enjoyed the most splendid mountain-views and the nicest people in the world. We'll be back!
And another certitude : Trip Himalaya, a real must !
We came as customers, we left as friends.
