Mr. Bhakti Devkota list his trekking agency finally, here I'm very happy to be the first one to share my story and to express my gratitude.

March I went to Langtang trek with my 2 sisters, Bhakti organized our trip. He have fluent English and well knowledge about mountains, but most importantly, he is a decent and sincere man.

In the first 2 days of trekking, my body situation was fine, but 3rd day when we arrived in Kyanjin Gompa(3798m) I started to have AMS symptoms around 6PM , in the initial just headache, but it getting severe within 2 hours, dizzy, continue vomited and couldn't walk! The tea house boss suggested us next morning need to call the helicopter, but.....my traveling insurance which I bought in Taiwan didn't cover the helicopter rescue in mountains ! If call the helicopter I need to pay several thousands USD by myself! And that night my symptoms got worse very quick, don't know how would it be if wait till next morning. Actually that time I already had mental preparation about next morning need to call helicopter and pay high bill by myself, but Bhakti immediately made the decision, he requested porter carried me, and himself carried the big trekking bag and all our small bags, that night we 5 ppl used headlight went down to Language village, when we arrived in tea house already late night, and my situation getting better after altitude descent.

I know many guides like to call helicopter for guests when they have AMS, coz same time guide also can get a big commission from helicopter company, this is a extra income for them! I'm very lucky to had Bhakti as my guide that time, he and his porter Nir carried me and very heavy bags walked in the snow land at night, and all the way took good care of us and made sure for our safety, I'm really appreciated his help !!

In the future if I have plan to visit Nepal again, Mr.Bhakti and Big Sky Treks is the only choice to me ! Highly recommended !
:)

Dear Zola Lin,
Namaste and greeting from Nepal :)
It was great pleasure to meet you and take you and your family to Langtang valley trek , we could have great time if you had no any problem if all things were normal , I am so happy that i was able to bring down safely from Kyanjyn gumba to Langtang Valley in the night time.
Money is not everything our relation and friendship is more important , it was my duty to help you in any condition during your Nepal Trips .
Thank you so much for your great and first review on Tripadvisor , it was appreciated.

Warm regards
Bhakti Devkota
