Most guesthouses cook a delicious range of foods, such as pasta, tuna bakes, potatoes, eggs, dhal bhat, bread, soups, fresh vegetables, and desserts. You’ll find a lot of garlic on the menu, as it helps you to acclimatize in thin air. In many villages, you may find meat on the menu. You can always get hot chocolate, tea, hot lemon drinks, soft drinks, and sweets. During the trek, you have meals in the same guesthouse where you have checked – in but lunch can be ordered anywhere on the trail.

A Typical Day on the Trail

You will have a hearty breakfast between 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. before you start a trek. At the right moment, you pack your bags and then head off to the dining hall. After approximately 2-3 hours of trekking, you will have your lunch somewhere on the trail. After a good lunch, you typically spend around 2-3 hours or even more on the trail before reaching your stopping place. Throughout the day, you will take frequent breaks and admire the fascinating mountains views. You also take plenty of pictures, which are backed up by the incredible panoramic mountains, rivers, landscapes, prayer flags, temples, shrines, cairns, and monasteries. Once you arrive at your tea house, you take a brief rest, shower, and have a light snack, a tea or coffee. If you are so inclined to natural beauty, you may take a short walk through the village and surrounding neighborhoods. After checking into your rooms, you have time to read or chat with fellow trekkers or with your crew members. Enjoying a warm dinner in a cozy dining hall, your trek leader briefs you on the next day's itinerary. You also give breakfast order which allows you to have everything ready for the next morning. Extra time can be spent on reading and playing cards. Ace Holidays' Sherpas love to teach various Nepali card games to you. Finally, you head off to bed at 8 p.m.

The Group Size

Minimum group size for this trip is 2 people and the maximum is 14, the average number is normally 8. Ace Holidays provides 1 lead guide, 1 assistant guide (if the group size is 6 or more), it assigns 1 porter for 2 trekkers.

Acclimatization

All Ace Holidays' itineraries are planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast can lead you to AMS. The higher the altitude, the less the oxygen. For example, at an altitude of 5000 m, there is 50% less oxygen. Therefore, your body needs to adapt to an environment, which has less oxygen. So, for a safe trek, it is essential for you to acclimatize. Sensible planning is, therefore, required to minimize the risk of AMS. Ace Holidays advises all its trekkers, who have heart, lungs or blood pressure problems to consult with their doctors before they begin their treks. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders are the symptoms of AMS. Check out our “High Altitude Sickness Page”. Ace Holidays' itineraries have been designed to prevent AMS as much as possible. But it is important to remember that some trekkers are more vulnerable to AMS than other trekkers.

Guides and Staffs Arrangements

Skilled, experienced, and helpful trek leaders make your trip smooth. Ace Holidays carefully select these leaders on the basis of their appropriate experience, skills and personal aptitudes. With an object of serving local communities, Ace Holidays only employs local staffs who have adequate knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local regions. The trek, tour, and expedition leaders of Ace Holidays have undergone the following training:

  • -Intensive Wilderness First Aid
  • -Trekking Guide Training
  • -Eco Trekking Workshop and Adventure Meet
  • -English Language
  • -Conservation and Biodiversity
  • -Rock climbing, Ice Climbing and Mountaineering (for expedition leaders)

    Best Seasons

    Autumn (September to December) and Spring (February to June) are the best seasons for the Langtang Valley Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. Trekking in Summer or Monsoon (June to Aug) will be affected by rain, but Summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist. This is low altitude trek and can be done during the winter season as well.

    Change on the Itinerary

    Your safety is of paramount concern when you travel with Ace Holidays. Please note that your leader has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the itinerary if it is concerned with your safety. Since this adventure entails travelling in remote mountainous region, Ace Holidays cannot guarantee that you will not deviate from it because weather conditions, health condition of a group member, unexpected natural disasters, etc., can all contribute to changes in the itinerary. The leader will try to ensure that the trip runs, according to your plan, but please be prepared to become flexible.

    What is the weather & temperature like in trekking?

    Every trekking trip up to Langtang region presents its own amazing, unforgettable moments that live forever in the hearts and minds of those brave enough to make the climb. One of the most unpredictable elements of this trekking region is the weather. If you’re not properly prepared for the twists, turns and volatility of the conditions that occur in this breathtaking region, you might find yourself in an uncomfortable and unpleasant situation. Here are some weather basics to help you ensure that you come to the Himalayas, well equipped and with preparation to face anything.

    Generally speaking, the nights are much cooler than the daytime in the Langtang region. Many first-time trekkers are surprised to learn about the incredible range that may occur in a given day. Above 3,500 meters, during the day, the thermometer could reach as high as 25 degrees Celsius, only to dip down as low as -10 degrees Celsius in less than 24 hours. While there’s no way to know exactly what each day in the mountains will bring, the weather and temperature ranges tend to be somewhat predictable based on the months and seasons.

    Spring - March / April / May / June
    Spring happens to be one of the best times of the year to visit the Himalayas, although it can become somewhat crowded. The beautiful clear blue sky can be seen, as well as different species of flowers in the lower altitude.

    During springtime, the average temperature is 20 degrees Celsius with a maximum of 25 degrees Celsius and a minimum of -5 degrees Celsius in the morning and for areas above 3,500 meters at night.

    July / August to Mid-September is Monsoon Season
    This season is not really recommended to travel as it rains in the lower altitudes, below 3500 meters. In areas above 4000 meters, it rains sometimes and although it is also sometimes dry, very few people travel during this season. The excess rainfall can provide ample chance to see spectacular views of the waterfall and it is also the best season to avoid the crowds. The maximum temperature during the monsoon season averages 30 degrees Celsius during sunny days with a minimum -2 degrees Celsius in the morning and at areas above 3500 meters at night. The average temperature tends to hover around a comfortable 22 degrees Celsius.

    Autumn - End of September / October / November
    Similar to springtime, autumn is also crowded in the Langtang Region, but it’s one of the best times to trek. While it lacks the beauty of flowers, the clear blue sky can be seen, including the incredible views from the trail.

    Winter - December/January/February
    Cold and less crowded season. The average temperature during the fall is 15 degrees Celsius with a maximum temp of 20 degrees Celsius during sunny days and a minimum of -15 degrees Celsius in the morning and at night, for areas above 4000 meters altitude.

    Regardless of time of year, trekkers should always plan accordingly and bring clothing for both cooler and warmer temps. Layering is always recommended, as are pants that can double as shorts. For a full list of clothing and materials to bring to account for various temperatures and weather changes that can occur in the Himalayas, trekkers should work closely with their travel provider. This will ensure that the adventure will be enjoyable no matter what the weather is, and there is every possible scenario to be taken into account.

    What type of shape do i need to be in, is this trip for me?

    Langtang Valley Trek is suitable for average people who are moderately fit, thus no previous experience is required. Some physical fitness programs such as running, swimming, hiking is recommended before you embark on your journey. Whilst on the trek, it is common to experience some discomfort before being fully acclimatised. To prepare for a strenuous trek you should begin training at least two to three months before your departure. As a guideline, an hour of aerobic exercise three to four times per week would be considered a minimum requirement. The best preparation is bushwalking involving relatively steep ascents and descents. If you can manage a couple of valley floor to ridgeline ascents per comfortable and able to enjoy the trek to the fullest. They are physically strong, sharp-witted and have an incredibly positive attitude towards a life that we would consider extremely tough. There is something about a trek in the Himalaya that draws you back time and time again. For keen walkers it is a paradise and even avowed non-walkers find that one foot just seems to follow the other, drawn by the appeal of what lies beyond.
