Langtang Valley Trek
We completed this trek in February 2017 and it was our best experience in Nepal. We were provided an English speaking guide and porter and although many people do this trek alone for us as part of a larger trip this was just not feasible due to equipment needed (all provided by icicles) and time required.Our itinerary was tailer made to suit our requirements and abilities and we ended up scaling two peaks instead of the advertised one which was excellent.We would not hesitate to book again and hopefully we will be back to do Everest base camp in a few years.

Fantastic trek strongly recommendable
I did the Langtang trek las November. Everything was superb: organization and supervision by Icicles managers Hari and Indira which took care of every detail regarding the preparation. The guide-porter Bisal was also efficient and very kind during the whole trek. And, what can I say about Langtang? If you love hikking but not in massive routes, if you like to feel in the midst of the Nepali-Tibetan, culture see how the real life in the in a Himalayan valley is, just go to Langtang. The route is beautiful al the time and you won' t find thousands of people in your way. It's magic, it's silent, it's peaceful, it's sort of mystic it's charming. It's Langtang.
Thank you Eugenia for taking a time and writing a review. We feel happy to make our clients happy. Cheers! an have a nice day!
