Jan, Erlinde, Lakpa and sanjip on Charcra Ri 5033m. & Langtang Lirung 7145m.
Lila had arranged the trail perfectly : everything we asked for, a custom-made trip. Whether it was possible to make a teahouse trekking to the Gosainkunda-lakes en the Langtang-valley, followed by a tent-trekking to Paldor Base Camp and the Tiru Danda?
No problem. And the price turned out to be very reasonable as well.
Lakpa Sherpa was our guide for over 3 weeks. He seemed to know every path and every mountain. We always got the most beautiful rooms (the rooms with a view) in the best lodges.
And with Sandjib Gurung, our young porter, we always had fun.
During the first week we had amazing views of the Himalaya, from the Annapurnas, over the Manaslu and the Ganesh Himal to Langtang. From our room, we could even enjoy the sunset and sunrise in this magnificent landscape.
During the following week, we hiked through the Langtang-valley to Kianjing Gompa. There we climbed the 5000m high Tsergo Ri. The next morning, we walked into the desert valley, up to Langisha Karka. That were fantastic days.
Week 3 : the tent-trekking with a staff of 11 people (for just the two of us!).
They prepared delicious food and we slept in excellent Swiss Vaude-tents.
Unfortunately, Jan fell during a hike and dislocated his shoulder. The helicopter-rescue was arranged as quick as possible. Lila even joined the helicopter to pick us up. He took care of everything in the hospital, and later on in the hotel. (Again 1000times thanks)
This was our second trip to Nepal. Again, we enjoyed the most splendid mountain-views and the nicest people in the world. We'll be back!
And another certitude : Trip Himalaya, a real must !
We came as customers, we left as friends.

Thank you for the nice email. At the moment we are in Delhi. Yesterday we visited the Taj Mahal, which was really nice.
We both had a fantastic stay in Nepal, partly because of your excellent organization!!! We really enjoyed all the activities and trekking and definitely would like to come back one day in the future. The trek in Annapurna was really great. We were lucky with the weather and had some fantastic views!! India is a lot more crazy, we wish we were back in Nepal again!!!
We posted some new photos on our website, so if you have some time after the trekking you can have a look. Maybe some other people will have a look at our website as well and hopefully also read about Trip Himalaya.
Anyways, thank you very much again for everything and hopefully we meet again in the future....

It was a great honor for me to climb Mont Blanc with Mr. Lila Gurung.
A dream came true and without Lila, I would never be on the summit.
He's a very experienced guide for climbing and always works in very save conditions.
Thank you very much!

Hi lila, we had the most fantastic time in Nepal and cannot wait to come back! Lakpa and Umesh were great, we had lots and lots of fun with them and even learnt some Nepali. Pani puri most of all. ABC was incredible, totally amazing. And we were so lucky to have snow over night - it was perfect. all was white and blue sky. The walking down was the hardest bit, my knees were aching.
Chitwan was superb and we had so much fun on the elephants. The hotel in Chitwan was excellent. We saw monkeys, deer, rhinos and crocodiles in Chitwan. We loved Nepal, the people were so friendly and nice the countryside so varied. I was particularly keen in the flora and noticed lots of plants that I know from home. Overall we have had one of the best holidays I can remember. When I close my eyes, I have lots and lots of images of Nepal in front of me - wonderful.
Once we have developed our pictures I will send some to you.
We will come back for more, hopefully soon.
Thank you so much for organising everything - it was perfect!

So I was in Nepal for my fourteenth time. The planning was to do the big khumbu trek from Lukla-Gokyo over Chola pass to Gorakshep and than to Island Peak. All we succeed and everybody of our four persons group was very happy about the perfect organising, partly lodge, partly camping. So a very big thanks for the organizing and specially for the enormously big and technical assistance on the Island Peak climbing in bare weather circumstances.
Thank you very much Lila
Hi Lila. Namaste
We arrived back in London safely at about 6.30 am UK time. The flight was fine, just very long.
We had a fantastic time in Nepal and would all like to thank you very much for arranging everything. It all went very smoothly. The accommodation and food was much better than I had been led to believe, and the scenery both on the trek and at Chitwan was spectacular. I would not hesitate to recommend Trip Himalaya to any of my friends as I think that the flexibility of the itinerary, the small groups that you are willing to take, and of course the very personal interest that you take in your groups, made the trip special – some things that we would not have experienced had we chosen to go with a big UK company such as Exodus.
Phil and I have downloaded our pictures this morning and are now in the process of combining them so that they are all in the right order. When we have done this, and some editing, we will send you a copy.
I will also email Richard and thank him for his recommendation. Thank you again for a super holiday
