I recently had the pleasure of taking the Langtang Ganja-La Pass Trek with Adventure A One Treks. From the moment I arrived in Kathmandu, I was made to feel welcome and well taken care of. The guide was an absolute pleasure to have on the trek. Not only was he knowledgeable about the area, but he also went out of his way to make sure we had the best experience possible. The accommodations were great throughout the trek. We stayed in some of the most beautiful lodges and teahouses, with breathtaking views of the Langtang Valley. The cost of the trek was also very reasonable. Adventure A One Treks provided us with great value for money and went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend Adventure A One Treks to anyone considering the Langtang Ganja-La Pass Trek. They provided excellent service and I had an amazing experience. 5 stars!
