second trek in Nepal

It was our second trek in Nepal, but amazing trip with different views of Himalayas. Last year we went to Annapurna base camp it was also nice. All the credit of our trekking is goes to Surya who organized this private trip for us. He is very helpful and responsible person. We also thanks to our guide Mr. Bachu Tamang who take care us during our trekking in Langtang. The views were beautiful, local people were innocent. I highly recommended this trail for the people who like the mixture of nature and culture activities. Also recommended Surya and his Team for the travel partner in Nepal.
