Introduction

Langtang is not like other treks in Nepal; it has its own beauty, is generally easier and the surrounding mountains almost seem touchable. As the trek to Langtang and back Kathmandu via same track is shorter then other treks, about 7 days, you have the option to extend your trek by including Gosaikuda and Lauribinayak Pass (4600m); this option will extend your trek to 12 days. The trek will follow the river through lush forests, Tibetan villages, and the Holy Lakes situated at the elevation of 4385m. Langtang and Gosaikuna have their own unique character. You can visit a Tibetan Buddhist monastery, Hindu shrines, the Holy Lakes, and a local yak(nak) cheese factory. Langtang is a wonderful choice for new and veteran trekkers. You won’t regret the journey as you absorb the beauty of the surrounding mountains and immerse yourself in the culture, simple lifestyle and friendly hospitality.

The Earthquake of 2015 destroyed Langtang village but most of the tea house reconstruction is complete. Langtang and the surrounding valley is safe to trek and your visit will have an impact on the local economy as that region continues to rebuild. Your visit will bring money to the area which helps fund education for children and adults.

We are certain that a trek to Langtang and Gosaikunda will provide a wonderful lifetime experience.

When you book a trip through Beyond Base Camp Treks we require that you obtain a travel insurance policy. We recommend your insurance includes medical coverage for high altitude, emergency repatriation, trip cancellation and other travel mishaps (e.g. flight cancellations or delays, trip interruption, or loss of luggage and personal effects). The medical and emergency repatriation are compulsory for your trip. Medical care in the Himalayas is remote and the coverage in your insurance will ensure the best care and transport should an emergency arise. Altitude Sickness is a very real possibility, although our guides are trained to detect and help curb the effects, it is never a guarantee that you may not suffer some serious symptoms that require medical attentions.

Altitude sickness, also called Acute Mountain Sickness(AMS), is a group of general symptoms that are brought on by rapidly climbing or walking to a higher altitude too quickly. It happens because the body doesn’t have enough time to adapt to the lower air pressure and lower oxygen level in the air at high altitudes. Altitude sickness can affect anyone and does not discriminate by age, sex, or general health. We try to manage and minimize the effects of altitude sickness by building in acclimatization days during the treks above 3000m. Most people will experience some common effects of altitude including shortness of breathe and lightheadedness. Your trained guide will monitor you daily and it is important to be honest about any effects of altitude you may be feeling, signs of mountain sickness typically present with enough advanced notice that we can minimize severe symptoms.

There are three stages of AMS:
1) Normal AMS symptoms- expect but no worries
2) Mild AMS symptoms- Don’t go higher
3) Serious AMS symptoms- Decent immediate
