In April 2018 I am going on a trekking trip to Nepal the Langtang Trek. I was in Nepal in 2015, but my trip was cut short. On April 23, 2015, we left the Everest Base Camp, just two days before the earthquake, and on April 25 we were about 2 hours to Namche Bazar when the ground started to shake. The rest of the season was closed.
If you are interested to go on that trip, please contact me shortly, because I need to start making reservations soon.
The price for the track is $1,300, not including the airfare. You are responsible to arrange your own transportation to and from Kathmandu in Nepal.
