                      How difficult is Langtang Valley Trek?

                      Langtang Valley Trekking is a moderate adventure in Langtang region of Nepal. It takes you to the highest elevation of 3430m through Ghoda Tabela (3008m) and Lama Hotel (2470m). Trekking up to 3500m is considered to be a mild trekking. However, it can, sometimes, be challenging if you haven’t prepared comprehensibly especially for the beginners. Even, the beginners can do Langtang Valley Trek but have to prepare very well.

                      Trekkers who are undertaking this trek have to have the experience of short hiking/day hiking/ walking ups and downs at least for 5-6 hours consistently. To avoid the sudden incidents on the trail, one has to boost up the level of stamina and confidence. Another important thing to prepare for Langtang Valley trek is trekking equipment. It means, one must pack up and should be armored with very reliable trekking equipment and all other necessary stuffs before you depart for the venture.

                      Altitude sickness, acclimatization and preparations

                      Of course, there are a few cases of altitude sickness with the trekkers every year on the trail while ascending up to Langtang Valley. But it is not common to all. Actually, if the trekkers are not prepared well and they consume contaminated food and water, they may get altitude sickness. Also, if the trekkers get the new elevation quickly without proper acclimatization, they may get it. Actually, we don’t have to spend a spare day for acclimatization during this trek while ascending up to the Langtang Valley because it is not necessary to acclimatize your body if you are undertaking a trekking trip below 4000m.

                      What happens if you we get altitude sickness? You have got fever, stomach ache, diarrhea, lightheadedness, headache, vomiting etc. If these problems go worse, then, you had not better continue the trek and you must walk down or take rest at the place where you are. If you feel you at risk and ask your guide to arrange for the rescue and you will immediately be evacuated to the nearest city where you can have a good treatment.

                      The Ways of Avoiding Altitude Sickness

                      • Prepare and pack up the right and reliable trekking gear
                      • Avoid drinking contaminated water from local taps and river
                      • East fresh food items
                      • Do not smoke and drink a lot
                      • Address any kind of serious illness if you have beforehand the trek
                      • Ascend with the right pacing and have proper acclimatization
                      • Tell your guide if you have any sudden problems in your health
                      • Just relax, be confident and have plenty of hot drinks

                      How will be the guide and the porters?

                      The guide you will be accompanying will be highly experienced and professional with a trekking license. He/she will very literate in particular language so that won’t be any misunderstanding in communication between the leader the other trekkers. Moreover, he/she will be very hospitable, coordinating, very familiar with local people and their culture, mountain peaks, flora and fauna, religious and historical sites and the weather forecast.

                      The porters will be very responsible to the trekkers. They will take care of you all and carry your stuffs and equipment walking next to you at every step of your trek. The porters also will communicate you somehow because they also know little English or other languages, at least, to communicate, but not very well.
