Langtang Trek Adventure

Trek Adventure

The Langtang Trek gives you the opportunity to get right in among the Himalayan peaks and to walk through remote, sparsely populated areas.


The trail passes through Tibetan and Tamang villages and offers fine views of the Ganesh himal across to the northwest. The trail also offers trekkers an exceptional diversity of scenery and culture whilst passing through an ever-changing climate. After resting in Kanjing Gompa on day 7, it’s a push Charku Ri on day 8, a 7 hour total walk holding the best views of Nayakhanga, Langtang Lirung, Gyanchopo and the Langtang Valley. Finally your Adventure will conclude in Kathmandu with time to check out the sights and sounds of the inimitable Kingdom in the clouds.

Accommodation

In Kathmandu you will be accommodated in simple but clean accommodation. There are many great restaurants and cafes for breakfast, lunch and dinner in these places. Eating out is a fun part of any trip to Nepal! Local beer is good and well priced. Wine is not local and hence can be expensive. Whilst on trek you will be staying in simple lodges along the trail. These are an essential part of the trekking experience in the Himalayas, as you will be staying with other fellow trekkers from around the world, sharing stories and maybe a few games of cards in the evenings...

 

What is a Level 3.5 Trekking Challenge Like?

These challenges are either longer, higher, or span several days. In the case of single day events, you can expect up to 12 hours trekking. In the case of a multi day trek, you can expect lower daily durations - but of course - the effort is sustained over a longer period. You need to be keen on physical exercise for these events, and to enjoy taking exercise, and to do it regularly. Longer duration long haul treks are likely to be easier in terms of the physical walking, however, you will need to be more resilient - due to simple living conditions - ie using same clothes for several days, lack of washing facilities, simple food, and maybe camping - this forms an integral part of the challenge.

 

How Fit Do I need to be to join a Level 3.5 ‘Trek’?

You need to have good endurance for these events. You must be used to doing very long walks in the countryside - 7 hours + . You should be doing regular exercise - possibly with some running. Your running speed will be around 10-11 minute miling, and you should be able to run a minimum of 4 to five miles. If you do not run, you should be concentrating on other types of exercise - but for longer periods of time (i.e. sessions in excess of 1.5 hrs.) - these other forms of exercise should be at a moderate to high level.

 

Medical Issues

Please note, it is extremely important for this physical challenge that you are in good health. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, please consider carefully whether you should be joining the challenge. Please ensure you fill in the booking form accurately and honestly, this is important. In the case of serious conditions (epilepsy, diabetes, heart conditions, recent illness or operations), please discuss the challenge with your GP. Please also ensure you notify us of any allergies or similar.

You should be used to walking reasonable distances each day to contemplate this trek. It requires stamina and good aerobic fitness - but good willpower will also come in handy! Failure to disclose medical conditions is a serious omission - that could have serious repercussions on any of our challenges.

Weather

One of the most fascinating things about Nepal is that in the space of a hundred miles you can go from the coldest and most bitter conditions on earth to the sweltering heat of the North Indian Plain. In general it’s best to plan for temperate conditions ranging to around freezing on most trekking itineraries. Temperatures in the daytime range from +5—+20 degrees Celsius, with evenings being 8 to 10 degrees cooler. The best times of the year by far are the spring and the autumn. Whilst it is possible to trek during winter—it’s a little cold for most people. The monsoon is not fun—as paths are washed out, it’s exceptionally humid, and you’ll spend a lot of time wet through! Most people are surprised to find that Nepal is actually the same latitude as Florida or Egypt, the extremes in temperature and climate are all do to altitude variations.
