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.

- What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?
Is a visa on arrival available?
Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

Is Asia open for tourists?
Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.
As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.
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.
