    One of my friends recommended Oriental Journeys for your Nepal trip. It was a well-organized trip. We had a friendly guide, he was available whenever necessary. The trek was fantastic. We enjoyed our stay especially at Langtang village and Kyanjin village. It was the best trek experience.
    Thank you.
