“I went on the Manaslu trek in March 2020 with Nepal lion tours & treks and had an amazing time! The mountain and nature scenery was breathtaking and a really memorable hike for me! Nepal is such an amazing country with such lovely people. I felt safe every moment of the trek and the company really takes care about everything. Starting with a pick up from the airport and welcome dinner, they will help you with every concern. It was absolutely no problem to travel alone as a woman. Nikesh was the best guide I could wish for, we had a really good time. He always wanted me to be happy and took care about me. So I can 100% recommend this company and my guide, it was a breathtaking amazing trek I will never forget. Everytime again, best choice:)”

“I would have to say that this guide system does everything that you could ever ask for. I took three different tours with the Nepal Lion Trek and Tours, as being my first time in Nepal they did a lot to help me get around the city and picked me up from the airport free of charge. They were even so considerate as to keep me in a hotel while I was between tours. My first tour was an eight day trek that took me up into the Himalayan mountain city of Langtang, the entire experience was utterly breathtaking. I am so glad that they gave me the opportunity to walk among the natives in that area while having a kind and considerate guide with me at every step. They really do put a lot of thought and preparation into everything they do. The guide they had chosen for me was very helpful, patient, and fun. I could not recommend a trip like that enough. The sites and views all along the mountain all the way to Langtang was so elegant and powerful that I could never forget, topped off with the amazing view of Chergeri, I was stunned by how much there is to see in one trip, all organized by the Nepal Lion Treks and Tour. After my trekking to Langtang I did a three day-two night tour in a beautiful resort in Chitwan, called the Hermitage Resort. Coming from the United States I have to say they have one of the best service staff I have ever seen, they were always one step ahead of my needs and the food was always prepared well and with a smile. In the three days I spent in Chitwan I did things that I would never have thought I could do. This included a jungle walk where we saw fresh tiger footprints, a rhino and her baby, and even a group of swinging monkeys. I did many other things in the three days like dance culture program, elephant safari, and a sunset walk which were equally as amazing as the first jungle walk. I was honestly astonished by how kind and forward thinking the staff at the resort was, and how much they take your needs and desires into consideration in everything they do. Once again another great experience put together by the kind Nepal Lion Trek and Tours organization. My last tour was a day tour that took me around Kathmandu, and I have got to say that I was completely blown away by how much culture and variety there is in one city. Every street, every house, and every block was over flowing with the vast culture and rich atmosphere of how much there is to see in Kathmandu. I was so fortunate to have signed up with the Nepal Lion Treks and Tours because of how much knowledge they have on this beautiful country and how much they have to offer you. They were always thinking of you first and will only offer you the best experiences around Nepal for a considerate price tag. I know that in the future when I take my family to the great country of Nepal I will be booking with this group because I know I will get the most out of my money.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • 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.
