my girlfriend and i will be in nepal around Mid may and are planning on doing a trek. We are looking at the Poonhill or Langtang Trek (open to suggestions!). Im just chasing some information about the best way to go about this and/or experiences. We also want to keep the costs relatively low so everest base camp is out of the question unfortunately (i believe its quite expensive?).
so anyway some questions are:
is it best to book through a trekking company?
can you just hire a guide so there isnt a huge group?
Is buying gear and going rogue a bad idea?
basically ANY tips/hints/recommendations/experiences are welcome
