A moderate trek in Nepal along the foothills of Central Himalayas in Nepal, where culture & nature overflows despite the massive affects of quake 2015- Langtang Valley Trek

Being closely located to the epicenter of destructive 2015 earthquake, Langtang suffered badly due to the biggest natural disaster that hit Nepal on April 25 2015. However, the hard work of locals and tourism stakeholders of Nepal, the region has been opened as before for trekking adventure. Trekking to Langtang now could be the huge support to boost the local economy.

Langtang Valley Trek is full of diverse and unique aspects culturally and naturally. The region has been the home to ethnic Tibetan Tamangs for centuries. Hence the nomadic form of Tibetan culture can be seen in most of the villages of Langtang Valley. The culture and the lifestyles natives of Langtang Valley enjoy are simply beautiful. The major landmarks of the region, Kyangjin Gompa and Langtang Village were badly affected during the quake. The rapid recovery to reinstate these traditional habitats is almost done and hence the cultural values of these destinations could be well observed during the Langtang Valley Trek.

Moreover, the natural wonders of the region are incredibly beautiful. Langtang is the closest approach to the Himalayas from Nepalese capital, Kathmandu. The Himalayan panorama is dominated by Langtang Lirung (7246m), the highest peak in the region. Gang Chenpo and Naya Kanga lie to the south and Dorje Lapka (6966m) soars high in the east of the Langtang valley. Langtang also houses over 70 glaciers and elevated sacred lakes like Parvatikunda, Gosainkunda, Dudhkunda and Bhairavkunda. Tsergo Ri, a ridgetop over Kyangjin caters 360 degree view of Himalayan panorama.

The trek can be undertaken anytime of the year but the best time to go for the trek in between April to June and August to October. The trek starts at Syabrubeshi and ends here.

  • The sighseeing tour of UNESCO World Heritage sites of Kathmandu Valley
  • The post quake recovery as the region was badly affected during quake 2015

Winter (January and February) will be bit colder but the days can be quite beautiful and warm if the sun is out. There will be bit of snow during the month of January, February and December. It is also important to make sure that you can stay warm and dry in just about any conditions. Expect the unexpected!

  • Altitude Mountain sickness
    AMS is the abbreviation for Acute Mountain sickness also termed as the High Altitude Sickness. AMS is one of the challenges that the trekkers/ climbers might face during their climb in the mountains. As you reach higher in the altitude the oxygen level gradually decreases. If a person tries to climb too quickly then there is a higher chance of getting AMS. The major symptoms of AMS is headache, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, tiredness, difficulty in sleeping. However, AMS can be avoided by using some precautionary measures such as drinking plenty of water, eating enough food and walking in the steady pace. Our experienced guides who have been working in the Himalayas will help and instruct you for further measures.

    Ecstatic Himalaya will provide a well-qualified and experienced guide who has a good knowledge about AMS as they can recognize the early symptoms and advise medications for instant relief. We have designed our trips in such a way that the clients get full acclimatization and proper rest. You will also be provided with a Gamow bag upon request at an additional charge which is considered a major gear to reduce the effect of AMS. In the worst case scenario, we shall arrange a rescue and evacuation using a helicopter whose cost should be covered by your travel insurance.
  •  

  • Acclimatization
    We are experts at operating at high-altitude. Every trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our treks are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. There is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on hiring basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude illness, and our leaders are trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
  •  

  • Physical Fitness
    We strongly recommend our clients for consulting the doctor before planning your holidays. You should obtain professional advice from a travel clinic or your local GP about which vaccinations to have before you arrive in Nepal. Your doctor will advise current inoculation requirements. If a doctor has recommended against travel or indicated travel may be inconvenient then inform us of the details. On all trekking and exploratory trips technical experience is not required, hiking/camping experience is an advantage, but by far the most important thing is a positive attitude and a generous amount of determination. We strictly maintain hygiene foods on the trek. We carry extensive medical kits and, if the need should ever arise, we are able to evacuate seriously ill group members by helicopter. We run regular first aid courses for our all trekking guides and Sherpa helpers.
