The trek offers adventurers an extraordinary shift of ecosystems because of the unique combination of depth and height along the route. The stunning routes are surrounded by snow giants such as the Annapurna Himalayan ranges and other peaks above the 7000-meter mark.
A dense tropical forest of bamboo and rhododendron cover the south-facing slopes and the north-facing slopes covered by rain shadow. The sanctuary, considered sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists is believed as the abode of their deities. It was not opened for foreigners until 1956.
Please see the day-to-day itinerary for more detailed information.
Unfortunately ABC route has been closed due to avalanche just before the two days of our journey. Agency owner Mr. Ganesh promptly informs us and suggested some alternatives with pros and cons. We just relied on him to do on behalf of us and requested to take the chance till last point. He redesigned accordingly and suggested optimum solution which also capable to reroute to ABC if we become fortunate again. We went till Chomrong via Poonhill-Ghorepani and observed the similar situation stated by him earlier.
The most entertaining thing was selection of accommodations which was excellent choice in terms of scenic position & comfort ability to roam around in leisure time though sometimes we have to slightly compromise the lodging facilities. The guide & porters were with us like presidential guards to facilitate till whenever we went to sleep. Their positive attitude always inspired us to overcome all challenging situation during trekking.
On the whole, Glorious Himalaya Trekking ltd. managed the entire tour so entertaining, comfortable and undoubting that I will like to select them for my next trekking. In a single sentence, Glorious Himalaya Trekking ltd. knows to provide positive customer experience with professionalism”

How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
How much should my backpack weigh?
A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.
- Do I need a porter?
Do I require a porter for carrying water?
On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?
We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
