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.
Very nice trek for who has short period of time in Nepal. The guide Binod was very entertaining and helpful. The view at Kyanjing valley was stunning. We would recommend this trek with Lion tours and treks !
