  1. Incredible Landscape and Views
    By Rebecca Irvine December 11, 2022
    The entire journey was perfect for me. The incredible landscapes and views made excellent pictures. You really get to experience the unique flora and fauna of the region to the fullest during this trek. I would like to thank Mosaic Adventure and my guide Ramesh from the bottom of my heart for their service that made the whole trip so comfortable and for fulfilling my dream of photographing the Himalayas.
  2. Langtang valley trek was the perfect option
    By Raia Ivanova December 4, 2022
    I have been an avid trekker for quite some time now but last year I ended up breaking my leg. As a result, I was looking for a less intense trek to get back on track and Mosaic Adventure’s Langtang Valley Trek was the perfect option as recommended by friend. The trek was perfectly paced and involved many interesting stops. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the Tamang people. It was extremely fascinating interacting with them and learning more about their cultures and traditions. However, the highlight for me was definitely the day spent exploring the Kyanjin Gompa region. The Buddhist monastery present there is an absolute work of art and holds fundamental amounts of traditional and cultural importance for the region. I even had the opportunity to try the yak cheese which had a rather distinguished but delicious taste. Overall, it was a trip filled with the mysteries of exploration, thanks to my guide Rudra who was quite knowledgeable about the region.
  3. Very well taken care of
    By Sjoerd and Jannemiek December 23, 2019
    We really enjoyed the Langtang Valley Trek! The area was very beautiful and we like the change of scenery during the trek. The communication with Mosaic was very smooth, we got quick and elaborate replies. We enjoyed and felt that we were taken care of very well. BN was a great and knowledgeable guide and Suresh was always in a very good mood. The only thing we were sad about during the trek was that we couldn't go to Tsergo Ri because of the weather conditions, but still the trek was challenging enough. Although it was cold outside we still felt very comfortable the whole time! We would definitely recommend doing the Langtang Valley Trek with Mosaic.
  4. Excellent Langtang Valley Trek
    By Lenard and Yue Jing December 20, 2019
    We had an excellent Langtang valley trekking experience with Mosaic Adventure. Our guide Rudra and porter Nabin were superb throughout the entire trip! They were very patient and hospitable, always ensuring that we were well taken care of and meeting all our requests. They always made sure we were comfortable and well fed. Pre-trip, Madhav was also very responsive in answering all our enquiries and flexible in scheduling. The Kathmandu city tour by Keshar was very insightful. He is very knowledgeable. Well done to the Mosaic Team!
  5. Highly recommend the Langtang valley trek
    By Ellie Wilson November 25, 2019
    I and my friend just got back from Langtang - We can highly recommend the Langtang Valley Trek itself (forest/snowy peaks) but also Mosaic and our guide Bhumi and Porter Kumar. The trip was well organised, professional and Bhumi made sure my friend and I had everything we wanted. Also think it is a very fair price for what you get. The only watch point is the 7 hours drive from Kathmandu as the roads are pretty bad - if you can I would recommend getting a jeep as we did!
  6. Friendly and smiling team
    By Jeffrey Winchester May 2, 2018
    Just returned from trek and the mountain were awesome. My guide Thakur & my proter Harkalama were great. The Nepali people we met in the mountain were friendly and smiling. Beware the leech & remember to smile.

    Amazing trip
    By Victor Thliu November 11, 2015
    It was an amazing trip! Mosaic was very helpful and provided us with professional advice. The trek is definitely incredible and the view is fascinating. It's indeed a very good choice when you travel Nepal during the raining season. Rishi is absolutely a professional guide who helps you clear all obstacles to make you be there. He is also a great ambassador to show you the local cultures. The trip won't be so rewarding without his presence. I would like to give my sincere gratitude to them and wish them continue delivering unforgettable experience to other trekkers.

    Well organized
    By Marian Van Den Broek September 9, 2015
    Yesterday I returned from a trek to Langtang Valley Trek guided by Ram. Unfortunately the first part was very wet, 3 days and night rain. But We were lucky to end with good weather and nice views. It was well organized and I enjoyed. Perhaps next time to helambu and/or Gosaikunda. I will keep in touch. Marian Van.
