Langtang Reflections

Our Langtang Fastback far exceeded my expectations. It was extremely challenging, beautiful and provided the experience to visit an area in Nepal that is working so hard to rebuild. Personally, I have to thank Seth for his willingness to help me reach my goal ... without him I most certainly would not have been able to. Both he and Sudeep are so knowledgeable and patient ... I never worried about my safety. Thank you for providing the adventure of a lifetime!!!

The Langtang Fast Pack was a fantastic trip on beautiful trails through Nepal's Langtang region. This was my second trip with Himalayan Adventure Labs and I could not recommend them more highly! I have a million beautiful memories and pictures from each trip, which has only increased my desire to return to Nepal in the future.

It's completely different from the Annapurna Circuit! I loved the remoteness of the route!...I felt like we definitely got to experience the back country of Nepal and the HAL summer house reinforces that experience....I absolutely love the format HAL uses for their trips! You guys have been able to blend making a guided trip truly feel like an adventure without it becoming a tour group.....My wife and I have now completed two trips (Annapurna Circuit and Langtang) with HAL and I truly think they have something special when it comes to guiding/leading trips. While you "think you signed up for a guided trip in Nepal," what you've really done is signed up to part of a team for the next 10-14 days. I wouldn't go to the Himalaya's with anyone else, nor do I want to!

Seth and Sudeep are amazing leaders and friends. The trips are well organized and expectations set pretty accurately. Definitely the trips to take if you are looking for self supported, with beautiful trails off the beaten path, and want to push yourself. This was our second trip with HAL and we look forward to another!
