Langtang National park offers short and long treks ranging from 4 days to 15 days. The prime villages in this park are Langtang valley, Kyanjin Gompa, Tarke Gyang and Thulo Syabru, and the main attraction of this park is Gosainkunda lake, Kyanjin Gompa located at altitude of 3850 m, from where we can see a panoramic view of Mount Langtang Lirung, Ubra, Yala, Gyang Chembo, Naya Kanga and Dorje Lhakpa.
Most of the people in this region follow Buddhism and do not sacrifice animals, as in other parts of Nepal. The national park is home to some rare animals like the red panda and several species of birds and butterflies. The flora and fauna here are just an added touch to the beautiful landscapes of Langtang.
The trek itself is quite doable, ever for a first time trekker like me with average fitness level.
I visited in July, when the raod consitions aren't the best. So, I had a bumpy ride from Kathmandu to Syabrubensi. This is expected. For those, who are visiting in the monsoon, I'd suggest to be extra careful with potential landslides and unpredictable weather where you might not see the best views.”

How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
How much should my backpack weigh?
A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.
- Do I need a porter?
Do I require a porter for carrying water?
On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?
We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
