Excellent Langtang Trek and mountain biking!
This company came highly recommended from a Canadian friend so we thought we would give it a shot. We were a able to discuss several different options and based on our timeframe, experience, and budget we decided to go on a Langtang trek. It did not dissapoint. We also used the same company to help us book a mountain biking day tour of the Kathmandu area. It was also very good! They always seemed to do a really good job of pairing us with experienced knowledgeable guides.
Size of Trekking Group
For Langtang Valley Long Trek, there will be one leader and Sherpa porter (1 porter for 2 trekkers). This arrangement is done for the smooth running of the campaign. It ensures that the trip will carry on as per plan even if anybody in a group gets sick. NTA can operate this trek for a group of any size. But, a group of 12 are considered as optimum size.
