“Perfect communication. Organizing. No need to say more. Excellent choice.”
“Staff very reliable and professional”
“Great trip with Nepal Lion! Response rate was fast, the Director, Shiva is contactable at all times during the trip via WhatsApp or Facebook for any queries. They even provided me with a local SIM card and guide assisted me to get data on the phone to stay connected.
During the trip, guide was patient and safe. I fell sick on 2days and he was constantly checking if I was ok and was concerned when I didn't feel like eating. Very attentive and caring!
After the trip, I was even treated to a local cultural dinner and given a certificate of completion. Definitely different from other tour operators.”
“Felt safe and looked after in Mr Shiva and Prakash's hands in Kathmandu. On the trek Prakash was professional, knowledgeable and a very safe pair of hands, not to mention good fun and gorgeous! Our porters were amazing and never stopped smiling! Thank you all, Langtang Valley and Nepal for a life changing experience!”
“Travelled in April as a family of four. It was our first visit to Nepal and I booked the Langtang Valley View trek with Nepal Lion Tours & Treks via Bookmundi as it suited our abilities and timescales.
Mr Shiva was helpful and pleasant, he kept in touch with us from the date of booking and during our time in Nepal.
The trek itself was challenging, ascending 2000m in the first few days. We saw eagles and monkeys, the landscape changing from forests with pretty rhododendron trees to open pastures with the magnificent peaks coming into view. It was very moving to see the devastation created by the earthquake two years ago, however the locals are rebuilding their lives and the route and facilities are very much open for business.
We met some great people...trekkers, locals and of course our own group. Our porters, Krishna, Nima and Bikash were hard-working and good fun. The biggest shout out goes to our wonderful guide Prakash, for his professionalism, care and attention...he barely let us out of his sight.
I would not hesitate to recommend Lion Tours & Treks and Prakash in particular. They were part of a truly unforgettable personal experience...I hope to return to the Himalayas sometime soon.
Top tips: If you can afford to, upgrade to a private jeep for the long and arduous journey to Syabrubesi. Budget and take enough rupees to last you the trek, remembering drinks and snacks get pricier the higher you go.”
“The agency has a very good customer service, the guides have a very good education and the offered package is very satisfying. Shiva cares about their customer. Thanks Bishnu and Ras for the amazing experience.”
“Great support from Nepal Lion tours. They are freindly, polite and very Kindly. It amazing and so funny when journey with them. Great recommend, suggest and advise in every step, every walk and everytime which I never think I will got from my first time trekking”
“Support everything in good managing”
“Thank you Nepal Lion tour for your support during difficult time when i trekked to ABC. The Guide and Porters have a good sense of humor. They always sing a song, teach nepali language and tell a funny story while we were walking. I'm very happy for my first time trekking.”
“Nepal lion tour has been taking good care of us since the first day. The guide has very good expertise of trekking and mountain rage. Porters are also very friendly. Thank you very much for everything. We will sure use your service again next time we have a chance to visit Nepal.”
“Shiva Paudel managed the trekking plan clearly.”
“We had a lot of fun, made some really nice photos and Everest beer was really great. You have to open it slow as it explodes on higher altitudes. Many thnx to our guide Binod and take care Prakash;)”
“My wife and I just finished our 9 (extended to 10) day trek from Pokhara to Annapurna Base Camp. We had Raj as our guide and Suna as our porter and both were great; as was Nepal Lion Treks. As soon as we landed in Kathmandu Raj picked us up at the airport and drove us to our hotel. He let us get settled in and then took us over to their office in Thamel, a short walk away. The manager, Mr. Shiva, was very kind and accommodating and added an extra day for us in Pokhara after our trek to paraglide and explore, at a good price. He was also very responsive in coordinating with our guide Raj to ensure we were good with our flight back from Pokhara to Kathmandu.
As for the ABC trek itself, just do it. Its incredible. You're going to want to take pictures of everything. And Raj was fantastic. He is very friendly, knowledgeable, and made sure we were taken care of every step of the way. Suna, our porter, was also extremely helpful throughout the trek, and one day even ran ahead to secure us rooms for the night in an overbooked lodge. The hike is breathtakingly beautiful and we met a ton of cool people from all over the world along the way.
Bottom line is you could do this trek on your own, but because we booked through Lion Tours, we never had to worry about anything. Our rooms were booked, no negotiating anything, our meals and drinks were paid for, and we didn't worry about permits and transportation. We also felt safer and more confident in parts of the trek with someone who knew the terrain. It made the whole experience so much less stressful. My wife and I had such a great time and are already thinking about when we can get back to Nepal to try a different trek and we'd definitely book through Nepal Lion Tours again.”
“I had an amazing time during this 7 days trek in the Langtang Valley! We had a perfect weather, Binod my guide was excellent and my porter Prakash too! Totally recommend them both! The landscapes are incredible, the people we met on the way were really nice. I started the this trek with a guide and a porter, I came back with two friends.”
“I was very impressed with the way the trek was organized. I didn`t have to worry about anything and the guide and porter were excellent. I would recommend Nepal Lion Tours to anyone!”
“Lion is an awesome, reliable company offering excellent service. We traveled as a group of 2 (both 27 years old) with a guide (Bishnu) provided by the agency. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and spoke English well. All permits and passes were taken care of by the agency; buses too. The route design was perfect, allowing us to acclimate before attempting to reach the top of Tsergo Ri. We made it to the top, the views were stunning, and it was the perfect challenge for us. Definitely one of my greatest accomplishments. A+”
“Our trip to langtang was amazing. Nepal Lion Tours took care of all the details from airport pickup/drop off, meals, and tea houses all included. Our guide Bishnu was very knowledgeable and led us on a great trek. On Langtang we saw a variety of amazing views. We even hiked to 5000m! This was an amazing experience I will never forget, I would recommend Nepal Lion Tours to anyone interested in trekking in Nepal (ask for guide Bishnu). Thanks Nepal Lion Tours!”
“Dear Sir or Madam,
If you decide to go for trekking, exploring the Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan National Park you should turn to Nepal Lion Treks and Tours company.
They provide a lot of different services in Nepal so you may find what everything you need.
First of all we booked the trekking to Everest Panorama View and we were really happy, because the service was in highest level.
Guide Prakash, and CEO Shiva made a lot of efforts and were very attentive for the best quality. Also we booked the car with driver, Paragliding in Pokhara, exploring the Kathmandu, Pokhara and accommodation in Chtiwan National park, with different activities and we totally forgot about the problems, and enjoined the trip.
For your best trip in Nepal we are strictly recommend you to take a connection with Nepal Lion Treks.
Grigori and Olga”
“Nepal Lion was very helpful and accommodating with the preparation and organization of the trip. They provided end to end planning including meals, permits, and transportation. Couldn't have asked for any more!”
“I had the time of my life thanks to this excellent, professional company. Friendly and personal, everything was wonderful! Be sure to get Rajesendra tamang(Raj) as a guide!
Thank you Nepal Lion Tours! :)”
“Good company to work with. A buddy ended up wanting to come with on the trip about a week before I left and they helped make it happen. As someone from the U.S. I wanted to use a guide and local company for the base camp hike and they ended up being great to work with.”
“It's our first time experience trekking in Nepal and it was an amazing experience as we see different people from many countries and experience the Nepalis hospitality at its best. We can honestly say that Prakash, our guide, did not disappoint and always very kind and helpful. Overall, we recommend people to join this trek.”
“This trek was a brilliant experience from start to finish. Our guide Rajendra was a complete legend, helping us ever step of the way. The trek is a good workout, walking throughout each day - but not too hard. You can do it if you are a beginner. If you're thinking about doing this - do it!”
“My trip to Nepal was unforgettable! I did the 9 day Annapurna Base Camp trek with Nepal Lion Tours. Shiva was very quick to respond to all my questions and concerns via email leading up to the trip. When I arrived I was greeted at the airport by my helpfully guide, Prakash. They organized everything for me and I felt very taken care of and safe throughout my journey. This was especially good being a solo female traveller. They made my trip unforgettable and I now see them more as friends then just a business.
Thank you Nepal Lion Tours!”
“Great trek and experience for my wife and I. The guide (Vinod) was very friendly and patience with us as we trekked slowly over the 6 days. For the budget the accommodation wasn't flash but acceptable. You should note that mineral water, hot showers and wifi are usually extra on top of the package (we found out afterwards). Also, it was quite a busy time for the company so some details went missing in communication between the manager back at the office and the guide. For example, we had a porter included but we had to remind the guide that it was included multiple times before he realised. Also, they provided a nice certificate at the end to celebrate our achievement but then mistakenly put the wrong altitude reached (i.e. Poon Hill was about 3200 metres and then put 4100 metres). A little more attention to detail would have been nice but overall a great experience.”
“Extremely caring, friendly and patient ! Shiva was extremely caring, friendly and patient. He would go the extra mile to ensure that you are comfortable and safe. Worth for the money.”
“Our guide was really awesome and knowledgable. The service from Lion Tours was very good as well, and I will use them in the future.”
“Shiva was happy to answer all questions and queries, taking time to taylor the trip to our needs. We were picked up at the airport, and personally greeted in his office. No surprises, a few optional extras were offered at an additional cost.”
“Great Company and I'm planning to come back again for Everest Base camp :)”
“Nepal Lion Treks and Tours are an excellent company ran by a very hard working individual named Shiva.
Shiva's love for Nepal is evident when we were organizing our trip and should I return to Nepal I will definitely use this company again.
When a small issue arose, Shiva stepped in to pay for another night of accommodation in Kathmandu for our group which was much appreciated.”
“Nepal Lion Tours and Treks was very accommodating and organized the whole trip really well - from the airport transfers to the sightseeing within the city and the trek itself. They were always available when we had problems and were open to our ideas. Thus, we could tailor our trek to our wishes. The company also has good connections to hostels and a money exchanger to help tourists have a pleasant stay in Kathmandu and Langtang.”
“Lion Tours and Trekking were very helpful from the very beginning. After booking our trip (but before arriving in Nepal) they were always ready to respond to inquiries and give advice on what to bring amd how to prepare. Offering great service throughout, including free airport pick-up, booking our hotels and guest houses for our entire stay and providing free breakfast, lunch, dinner and tea and coffee for the duration of our trek made mangaging our own moneh easier, by removing the need yo bring bulks of cash up the mountains. Offering free transport for sightseeing made us able to see a lot of Kathmandu as well. They were always flexible and if we had any questions or felt like anything could be improved, they would be quick to attend to our needs. MOST IMPORTANTLY (probably) was that we had an amazing guide, who was very friendly, open, and experienced. Great company.”
“Nepal Lion was very accommodating of our wishes and the airport pickups and tour around Kathmandu were very much appreciated.Thanks for a great trip!”
“Great company, they catered to our every need. Our guide was Rajendra, he was super friendly and very very helpful. The porters were also amazing.”
“This was an unforgettable experience, Nepal lion treks organized our whole trip and took care of all the organization ( arranging our flights, permits, accommodation and transportation) Shiva (managing director) was there to welcome us at the airport along with our guide Raj! Raj made our trip unforgettable he was patient, knew all the routes and was able to help us get through the hard times! All in all we had a great experience from the begining of our trek till our last day where the company arranged for us a farewell traditional dinner.”
“A very supportive and reliable company and guide.”
“Shiva is very nice, well-organized, flexible, accommodating and cooperative! He took care of everything and even was open to individual modifications. He is working with different guides of different age, so you might want to indicate a preference.”
“Annapurna Trekking is certainly one of the most rewarding treks in Nepal. The views are simply stunning and as this was our first time on a long overseas trek, we were very inexperienced and hopeful that our guide would be patient, supportive and have everything in order. We chose Nepal Lion Tours due to its cost and excellent reviews and we're were not dissapointed. We had an excellent guide, who should all the traits we were hopeful of and even had a lovely meal with the MD of the company on our last day. I would certainly recommend Nepal Lions Tour Company to anyone who wants a low cost high value experience.”
“The trek was a great amount of fun, the payment included food, shelter and the guide, Rajendra, who was a very good guide who waited for us when we were slow and stopped when we needed water. I would recommend this company to others as it provided a great holiday.”
“The trek was amazing. It wasn't too difficult with some struggles on the uphill the first two days, however all-in-all it was relatively easy going. The nights were cold but with the sleeping bags provided it was comfortable. The guide, Rajendra was an extremely good guide who helped us through the 5 days and was a great guy who was friendly. The food was great as well as the hotel/hostels we stayed in. The scenery and views were amazing and I will be going back to nepal to hike some more when i get the chance. Amazing experience.”
“I totally loved the experience! It was quite a challenge for me climbing up and down those very old stairs but the view and amazing sights are so worth the effort!
Big thanks to Nepal Lion Tours and Treks:)”
“Spent 14 days on the Everest Base Camp trek. It was a great trek, full of breathtaking views and challenging days, but we'll worth the money paid. If you have this on your bucket list like I did you will not be disappointed. Crew of Pasang and Suresh were fantastic and kept things loose. Very accommodating guides. Made our trip special.”
