1  Reviews on Langtang Valley Trek

The Everest Base Camp Trekking is one of the adventurous journeys ever in my life. Actually, I just came to Nepal to enroll my medical internship placement for two weeks at teaching hospital and the left over two weeks used for EBC trek. I was accompanied this trip with my other classmate who were doing same placement and activities. We heartily thank to GotrekkingNepal Team in order to make it happened. After taking less than hour’s trip to Lukla, we started to hiked, stopped at a tea house in the trail. The overall hiking was pretty strenuous; we enjoyed the culture and beautiful mountains, however. Having finished ascending to EBC, we got opportunities to enjoy numbers of high mountains.
