Langtang Valley Trekking is a short and wonderful Himalayan trekking experience. This route brings you into the Langtang region, where you can get close to its people, culture and religion while enjoying the marvels of nature.

Langtang was one of the badly affected regions by the devastating earthquake in 2015. Several infrastructures were destroyed and life was extremely difficult and the trekking route was closed right after the earthquake. But after a detailed survey of the region and rebuilding of infrastructure, the region is declared safe again and was re-opened. Feel the resilience of the local people as they reconstruct of their homes and lives. Going on a Langtang trekking trip now directly helps the local people to walk out of the disaster, as you trek through the beauty of their region.

Generally trekking is a wonderful activity for anyone who is reasonably fit. If you enjoy nature and like a challenge, we would say it is for you.
You don’t have to be super fit, but be prepared to walk on uneven terrain for 5 to 6 hours a day. We recommend that you prepare for a trek by going on regular jogs, swims or climbing stairs for some physical training. Go on walks or hikes that stretch for a few hours are great ways to prep. You can also take the opportunity to try out your trekking gear to make sure they are comfortable and working fine. If you have any doubts, visit your physician to assess your physical condition to ensure you can handle the trek you are planning to go on.
It is not necessary, but it will be an added bonus if you do have. It is more important for you to engage in some form of cardio training to make sure you have a good level of stamina, and to arm yourself with a positive mindset for the trek.
Trekking difficulty depends on the specific route, and our treks typically involve multiple days of walking on rough terrain. Generally, the longer the trek and higher the altitude the tougher the trek will be. Other factors for assessment include terrain, amount of ascending and descending, expected climate. For treks listed as strenuous, it can be manageable if you are physically fit and have maintained a suitable level of activity up to the trek. We can also customise treks to try to best match your fitness concerns.
We would say there’s no real age limit, as long as you are confident in handling the trek. We have groups of parents with young kids, and elderly trekkers who have completed their journeys. Generally, we suggest more days on the trek if you are concerned, so that we can spread out the amount of trekking per day and adjust the pace according to the group.
The recommended period is from February to May, and September to December. It is possible to trek during the monsoon season in the rain shadow zones such as Upper Mustang and Dolpo, where it gets warmer and flowers are in bloom.
The treks bring you to remote places in the mountains and high altitudes and having a guide will make it much safer for your travels. Our experienced guides can share stories and culture of the area you are trekking in, giving you deeper connection and make your trip more enjoyable.
We will send you a suggested packing list as items vary according with season and trek you are going on.
Keep in mind the rule of layering. It is best to use several thin layers than one or two thick layers. This helps you control your body temperature, where you can put on or take off layers according to the weather. Base layers should wick away moisture and be quick drying. Outer layer should be wind-proof and rain-proof regardless of the season you are trekking in.
We will recommend the equipment to bring in the packing list for your trek. You will find an extensive range of trekking equipment for sale in Kathmandu city, so you have the option of buying equipment right here in Nepal.
We advise you to bring along 1L to 2L of drinking water, waterproof jacket, some snacks for energy boosting, sunblock, portable headlamp/ flashlight, hats and sunglasses for sun protection. Sun protection is important for trekking as the sun’s rays get stronger in high altitudes. Make sure the weight of your day pack is comfortable for you to carry throughout a 6 – 7hours trek.
Our porters can carry up to about 25kg. One porter is assigned for every 2 travellers.
We will arrange storage in the city for your luggage and belongings that you do not want to bring up to the mountains.
There are teahouses or guest lodges along most of our treks where we will stay. On the few trekking routes that have no lodges, we will sleep in tents.
We will stop at the various teahouses along our trekking route for lunch and dinner.
We strongly advise against buying bottled water in the mountains as plastic bottles are one of the biggest source of pollution in the mountain areas. Bring your own bottles and you can buy boiled water from the tea houses ranging from USD1 – USD3 per liter. Alternatively, you can fill your bottle from various drinking spots and purify them with water tablets.
Mobile coverage will be spotty, and less available the higher we trek. Coverage may be stronger when we enter bigger mountain villages. Some of the teahouses have wifi and usually charges a rate of USD 3 - USD5/hr for usage.
Altitude sickness can occur as your body system is not used to the lower oxygen air in high altitudes. Symptoms can range from headaches, lack of appetite to acute mountain sickness where you have seek medical attention immediately. We try to help you prevent these by pacing the elevation of our treks, and sometimes staying at a certain place for a day instead of moving upwards (acclimatization days). On these days, you can take the time to explore the area where we are acclimatizing.
In the event if you fall sick or gets injured, please approach our guides who are all first-aid trained and experienced in dealing with emergencies. If your condition requires professional medical attention, our guide will call a rescue helicopter using your insurance to fly you to a city hospital.
Weather can be unpredictable and flights may be canceled for the entire day if it is unsafe to fly. It is advisable that you buffer a day towards the end of your trekking trip, to avoid affecting your international flight out of Kathmandu. We will rebook your flight for the next day. A chartered helicopter may be arranged if you are agreeable to the charter hire cost.
We will arrange for the accommodation required due to flight delays, but extra costs incurred will not be included in the package price.
Travel insurance is required for all our trekkers and you should buy one that covers for all the days of trekking. Check your insurance that it covers trekking activity and emergency helicopter evacuation up to 6,000m. Many policies cover up to 4,000m only. Please diligently check that you are well insured.
Tips are always greatly appreciated by our guides and porters. As a guide, we advise about USD8 – USD10 per day as a way to appreciate their hard work for their care and guiding during the trek.
A deposit of 25% of agreed trek package fees is required before your trip to Nepal. The deposit amount must be paid through PayPal via your account on, unless a prior agreement is made for other modes of payment. Payments are subjected to transfer fees of 3.9% charged by PayPal, or any other transfer fee amounts charged by other modes of payment. The remaining amount is to be paid in cash (USD/Nepalese Rupees) at our office when you arrive in Kathmandu.
