Langtang Valley Trek - 10 Days Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 3 reviews

A group of nine of us engaged sublime trail for helambu trek as well as bungy jumping and white water rafting in march 14. Prior to the trip, the guide was very prompt in answering our enquiries via email, and assisted us in changing our itinerary when we had to change the duration of travel. As we had 2 friends going earlier to Kathmandu, the guide also had the flexibility in making alternate arrangement for them. Overall, the trip was well-planned and executed. We managed to achieve what we expected. My luggage was delayed on the day of arrival and the guide assisted me in retrieving my delayed luggage, and was very helpful. He even stayed with me till almost midnight to ensure that I had my luggage with me. On the third day of our trek, a few of my group members lagged behind, with the guide. It was nightfall, snowing and the trail was not easy. The porters had already reached the tea house, yet they took the initiative to go out again to help. The guide carried 3 extra daypacks, on top of his own backpack to lighten the load of my friends. The helambu trek was a trip to remember, and the guide seamlessly planned for our next activity after the trek. We went to the Last Resort for bungy and white water rafting and the guide accompanied us throughout. He then took us shopping in thamel and pointed out shops that he knew we wanted to purchase specific items. It was as if he was a friend than a guide, as we knew that he did it out of his helpfulness, and not because he has to do so. Kudos to Sublime Trails for its service! And my gratitude goes out to Ram- our guide for ensuring that we had such a fun and a well-planned trip! I will definitely recommend this company to my friends.

The itinerary that Sublime Trails, namely Ram and his team of Porters provided were all that I ever wanted to explore in - trekking on the snowy mountain, homestay on the mountain, visiting Buddhist monasteries, learning the living culture of a Nepali and not forgetting the Canyon Swing! Being an amateur and a really slow trekker, it was raining and dark on the snowy mountain, I was in awe of appreciation when I saw the Porters walked on the edge of the cold mountain for my best safety!! Every day was ended with a hot bath and a warm dinner in a cozy dining hall...very warm hospitality from the Nepalese indeed! Most of the meals were meat-less, But! Not to worry for meat lovers like me as the resourceful Ram would have a way with all your needs, definitely. We couldn't have completed the 6days Helambu trek of the mountain beyond mountain with great Himalayan views without Ram and his Porters, providing 101% of their expertise, patience, commitment and their singing of the Nepalese songs! Kudos to Sublime Trails - Ram and Team!

Very experienced guides that can answer your every question you throw to them, be it farming methods, local festival, seasonal changes, religious traditions. very accommodating to our request and cater to our needs. some of us went over earlier and he did the extra planning to let them tour different places when the main group arrived for the city tour. we felt comforting to be in this tour group as Ram and his team is very helpful throughout the trek, voluntarily helped us on challenging paths on rocky slopes and slippery snow.  practically become our friend instead of a guide!
