Situated to the north of the Kathmandu Valley, Langtang is popularly known as "the valley of glaciers". Travel past the grassy meadows peppered with daisies and heavily timbered forests on your way to the Langtang Valley, which is swathed in alpine vegetation and inhabited by the Tamang people, whose traditions closely resemble that of Tibetans.
The trek will also take you to Kyanjin Gompa, where you will get the chance to learn about ancient Buddhist traditions that have found abode in the Himalayas for centuries. You will be inside Langtang National Park for the most part of your trek.
The park, rich in alpine vegetation, is home to many endangered species of flora and fauna, including the elusive Red Panda. However, your journey does not end there. You will return to Kathmandu on a chopper, savoring the sight of snow-capped mountains and wide, glacial valleys from above. Just the right way to see the mountains.

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.
