Essential Information

​Acclimatization and Safety

Altitude Sickness is one of the major concerns trekking in the high Himalayas. Trekkers might experience some issues in places higher than 3000 meters. Acclimatization is the key. Here are some tips to acclimatize better in the higher elevation:-

* Rest in regular interval

* Drink much fluid (Avoid alcoholic beverages)

* Get enough sleep

* High carbohydrate and low salt diet

* Do short warmup hikes when possible

If you feel uneasy, let the guide know as he/she will have every knowledge to deal with the situation. Descending is the best option if the situation is severe.

Langtang Valley after Earthquake 2015

Langtang village was completely destroyed by a massive avalanche from the April 2015 earthquake. Several hundred people died during the incident and were one of the most affected regions in the Himalayas. Different segments of the trail were damaged with most settlements destroyed throughout the area. The Economy of the region shattered and for a couple of years after the Langtang region was closed to trekkers. As of 2020 most of the village and settlements are rebuilt. The trail is maintained with new guesthouses and lodges reopened for trekkers heading to the region. Additional safety mechanisms are applied in landslide-prone regions too. The recovery from the earthquake is swift and the people here have tried to embrace the lifestyle once more. Visitors heading to Langtang can now see new positive energy and enthusiasm in the villages. Experience Langtang and contribute to the local economy here with the Langtang valley trek.

You should possess a copy of documents and passport throughout the trek as it will be checked in different checkpoints here.


Langtang Valley Trekking weather on different Months

Weather is one of the critical factors for pleasant travel. We need to check whether before traveling anywhere. When you land in the capital city Kathmandu you may find different climate but it varies after we trek different elevations. Here are the weather conditions for different months of the year.

January and February

Generally, the winter season will start from mid-January so the weather will be cold and the snowfall will occur in the higher parts of the Langtang area. The snowfall leads to extreme freezing temperatures. This month of the year is not the best time for trekking in Nepal and the Langtang area. Some people still go trekking to Langtang valley on these months.

March and April

If you want to enjoy the Langtang valley trekking then it is the perfect time to pack your bag for trekking. The weather is almost pleasant and trekkers can see the best picturesque view of Langtang II and Langtang Lirung.

May and June

The May and June months of the year are also the good months for trekking. Generally, trekkers can enjoy the Langtang trek before it started to rain. So, we recommend you plan your holiday this month.

July and August

These two months are the months of rainfall. It is also not the best time to visit Langtang. It is much risky to go for trekking since the trekking route is dangerous to walk in and you may waste your time.

September and October

As autumn season also known as Sharad Ritu lies between Mid-Septembers to Mid-November. It is also the perfect season for Langtang valley trek. This is the time where we can see tourists everywhere. This is the peak season and generally this time hotels, tea houses are full. It is very difficult to find accommodation. This season is also a season of Nepalese Biggest festival (Dashain and Tihar).

November and December

The Pre-winter season starts in Mid-November. We call this season as Hemanta Ritu in Nepali. It is complicated to trek to the Langtang region. The weather at a higher elevation is harsh and due to global warming, the weather is unpredictable.


Best time to Visit Langtang region

Trekking in the Himalayas it's always wise to omit winter and heavy monsoon for safety reasons. You can choose autumn or spring both proven to be the best times for trekking in the Langtang region. The period from March to early June and September to mid-November is ideal for trekkers to enjoy the most of the trek. The weather is most pleasant and nature is sublime during these months here. People however also, do the trek in other times for a different time for experiencing the unseen shades of Langtang valley.


Food and Accommodation in Langtang region

There is a broad menu to choose from in the lower Langtang region. In the higher remote regions, you will have a basic menu of Dal Bhat (typical Nepali staple) and some other stuff. Some teahouses offer pancakes, spaghetti, toast, egg dishes and more depending on places. Organic fruits and vegetables locally grown in the villages here are a major attraction. Beverages are available both alcoholic to non-alcoholic are available with many local delicacies throughout the trail. The Yak cheese near the Kyanjin village is a unique local delicacy of the Langtang Village.

Accommodation facilities are very basic. You'll be staying at lodges and teahouses for the Langtang Valley trek. These are not luxurious but provide you with the fundamental requirements like bed, electricity, shower & a couple more. You will have a shared Dining hall with a heated stove on demand. Taking a sleeping bag with you is always suggested for an overnight stay in higher elevation. Also, try used to squat toilets which are most common around the Himalayas.

Drinking water on the Langtang region trail

Drinking water taps are available in different parts of the trek for your service. As drinking water frequently is beneficial in dealing with altitude sickness, you must rehydrate regularly. For extra caution, you can carry purifying pills to add with them. You can also buy water but it might cost more (up to $3) once you are in the Upper Langtang region. One of the most common ways is SODIS (Purification with sunlight) for clean drinking water.

Note: Don’t forget to drink water every stop to avoid Acute Mountain sickness.


Langtang trekking Accommodations Facility

Langtang valley is one of the most loved destinations in Nepal and you can find plenty of tea houses and hotels for accommodation. Don’t expect the guesthouse to be luxurious but it’s nice and comfortable. You can find a clean room, decent beds, and toilets which are petty OK in the mountains area. During the main season, you may have to adjust with the beds and clothes If you book through the travel company then they will book you the best accommodations out there.


Porter/Guide Necessity for Langtang Valley Trek

Porters and Guides make your trek easier and hassle-free. More than it you are helping the local economy hiring them. Trekking in the Himalayas alone is a tricky business. It's wise to have someone knowing the language and techniques to walk in these regions. Additionally, with guides, you can have the most of any trek without missing the best bits. The guide is the unpaid ambassador of the country he will provide you so much information’s about treks and Nepal. Porters help you with the bags, food, and equipment and assure that your trek is as expected. With the Guides and porters from Magic Himalaya, we provide you some of the best individuals for the Langtang valley trek. These experienced professionals are licensed and up to any conditions arising in these areas.

If you are looking to do the trek alone make sure you've everything covered beforehand (routes, hotels, weather, etc.). Knowing some local phrases and language helps you a lot here. Try traveling in groups even without guides or porters.


Langtang Area for Female Travelers

In the past Langtang trek are is known as a danger area for female travelers. Now Nepal is safe for both male and female travelers. For female traveling, this area needs to be extra careful while exploring different places. It is also recommended not to wear a modern, tight and short dress. The normal dress is OK to wear. Different countries have different cultures, lifestyles, dress so always respect them and follow them. Always be careful while going out in the evening and take a guide with you. If you feel uncomfortable with a male guide then ask us for a female guide.


Trekking without Guide Service

Magic Himalaya treks always recommend hiring guide and porter for safe while trekking in Langtang. It is always challenging to do solo trek if you haven’t tried before. Actually solo trekking means gaining more experience and knowing the place better. If you have a guide and porter you can know more about places and the whole area. The porter will help to carry luggage which makes you comfortable walking. We can see some people trekking without Guide service.

If you are also on a plan to trek without a guide the make sure about everything’s including routes, weather, hotel, and a few more things. Many travelers don’t know the Nepali language but if you can speak some words that will help. Most of the people here in hotels and trains speak English.
