Unfortunately like all over nepal, there is also a lot of garbage on and next to the trail.”
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.”
Langtang Valley is now considered to be ground zero of the earthquake.
Just a few days after the earthquake the already damaged village of Langtang was hit by an enormous landslide and got completely swept away. And just like that, the biggest village of the region ceased to exist.
Theres been a lot of rumors and lies online on the worlds biggest traveling forums and guidebooks, that since the earthquake happened the Valley is closed for trekking.
Thats complete rubbish!!! The Valley is open for trekking!!
The locals that still live in the Valley were almost begging us to tell our friends and other tourists we met that Langtang Valley is 100% open for business.
The locals say that the only way they can continue their life is if tourists come back to Langtang Valley.
We had just return back from a fantastic trek to Langtang valley view. We were four friends trekking to Langtang along with a guide from Nepal Lion Tours and Treks. We had enjoyed the trek with good sceneries of the mountains, Langtang valleys and the landscape of this region. Have an opportunity to know about the different ethnic groups and the culture of the.”

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.
