Loved the helicopter flight

From: Korea, Republic of | On: 23 May, 2018

Among all the different kind of excitements that we got to experience while trekking to the Langtang region. Helicopter ride return to Kathmandu was the best experience of all. Especially because we got to scope out an aerial view of the whole valley. It was a nice way to end our trip to Langtang.

Lovely people and beautiful mountains

From: Norway | On: 03 Nov, 2017

It was really nice to experience the Himalayas in real life. I was so excited for this trip since the beginning of the year. We had been planning this for almost a year and I’m glad that it finally happened.

We chose Langtang especially because we wanted to explore the rural Tamang and Sherpa heritage. The people are widely famous for climbing mountains and it was really fascinating meeting them in person. They really work hard.

The helicopter flight back was incredible. We got the opportunity to explore Langtang both on foot and from the air. The aerial view however is something else. Truly loved the scenery. All thanks to CoreTreks for making this trip possible. Thanks to all the professionals from CoreTreks for helping us throughout the trek.

A very unique trip

From: United Kingdom | On: 15 May, 2016

Our trek to Langtang valley was amazing. The cheerful people of Nepal are really welcoming and polite. During the trek we got to explore unique landscape and settlements. I was amazed by how hardworking Nepalese people really are.

The return helicopter fight to Kathmandu was cherry on top. After a really long trekking we felt like we deserved the aerial view of Nepal.

Special thanks to CoreTreks for making this trip possible. They guides were really nice and helped us through all the difficult situations.
