Langtang Valley Trek FAQs

When is the best time to go on the Langtang Valley Trek?

The best time to go on the Langtang Valley Trek is during the spring and autumn seasons. March to May in the spring season and from late September to early December in the autumn season are considered the best due to mild weather conditions, dry season, and pretty good Himalayan views with clear blue skies.

Although spring and autumn are considered the best months, we run this tour throughout the year. With proper preparation and research, you can enjoy this trek throughout the year.

Is the Langtang Valley Trek difficult?

The Langtang Valley Trek is moderate level trek, which means it is not as physically demanding as some other popular treks in Nepal like the Kanchenjunga, Everest Base Camp or Annapurna Circuit Trek. The highest altitude reached during the trek is 4,984 meters (while climbing Tsergo Ri), which can be a bit challenging for some trekkers.

Do I need any permits for Langtang Valley Trek?

Yes, you need two permits for the Langtang Valley Trek: Langtang National Park entry permit and TIMS (Trekkers’ Information Management System) card. Mosaic Adventure will obtain these permits for you, so you don’t have to worry about it.

How long will I be walking each day during the trek?

You can expect to walk an average of 5 to 6 hours each day during the Langtang Valley Trek. However, on some days, the walk can be longer, especially on days when you are climbing to higher elevations like Tsergo Ri. You will have enough time to reach your destination and go slow and steady.

What kind of accommodation will be provided during the trek?

You will stay in teahouses, which are basic lodges built on the trail to provide meals and shelter. You will usually share a twin room with another trekker and eat your meals in a communal dining area. The rooms usually have a bed, mattress, pillow, and sheet. Teahouses provide blankets, but it is recommended that you bring a sleeping bag for extra warmth and hygiene.

What kind of food will be available during the Langtang Valley trek?

Teahouses along the Langtang Valley Trek offer a variety of meals including Nepali, Indian, and Western cuisine. You can expect to find dishes such as Dal Bhat (rice, lentils, and vegetables), momos (dumplings), noodles, and soups, among others.

Travel insurance is not mandatory for us to run the Langtang Valley Trek, but it is recommended that you purchase good insurance while trekking in such a rural area.

Does the Langtang Valley Trekking trail offer Wi-Fi?

It is not always reliable, but you can get Wi-Fi at some teahouses. Do not depend 100% on Wi-Fi that is available on the trail. Contact your friends and family beforehand about the limited conditions on the trail, and that you will be away for 8 days.

Is it possible to charge my electronic items on the trail?

Yes, there are facilities available at teahouses. Again, like Wi-Fi, it may not always be available, so be prepared with a power bank, extra batteries, etc.

How do I get to the starting point of the Langtang Valley Trek?

As part of the trek, we meet in Kathmandu, so you don’t have to worry about transfers to the starting point and back from the ending point.

Is there a chance of getting altitude-related sickness during the trek?

  1. Amazing trek to Langang
    By Harry Ridley March 1, 2024
    Langtang Valley Trek with Mosaic Adventure was an amazing journey my friends and I will always remember. For 8 days, we explored the beautiful landscapes of the Langtang region. We found out that the trek can be done in 7 days, but we highly recommend taking the 8 days trip because the side trip to Tserkori is totally worth it. Daily trek lasted about four to five hours, which made it easy and enjoyable. What made Langtang different from other popular treks was that it wasn't as crowded, especially when we went just before the high season started in late February. Our guide, Pralahd, was fantastic. He spoke English well and was very enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge of the country. Mosaic Adventure did an excellent job organizing our trip. They were always available and responded quickly to our emails and messages on WhatsApp. I strongly recommend Mosaic Adventure for the Langtang Valley trek, their expertise and support made our journey unforgettable.
  2. An unforgettable trip!
    By Kay Newman December 21, 2023
    Our Langtang Valley Trek experience with Mosaic was simply phenomenal! Rudra, our guide, was an absolute gem, caring, knowledgeable and patient throughout. Ram, our porter, was equally fantastic. With just the two of us, having one guide and porter allowed us to set our pace comfortably. Trekking through the breathtaking landscapes was unforgettable, made even more special by Rudra's guidance and Ram's support. Our journey up and down was filled with amazing moments. We will definitely return for more adventures. Huge thanks to Rudra and Ram for an unforgettable trip!
  3. 8-Day Trek in Langtang
    By M NUSSBAUMER May 2, 2023
    We had an amazing experience during our 8-day trek in Langtang, thanks to our fantastic guide, Ramesh. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, kind, and helpful throughout the entire journey. The trip was well-organized from beginning to end, and we would like to thank Mosaic for their excellent services. We highly recommend this company and Ramesh in particular.
  4. Incredible Landscape and Views
    By Rebecca Irvine December 11, 2022
    The entire journey was perfect for me. The incredible landscapes and views made excellent pictures. You really get to experience the unique flora and fauna of the region to the fullest during this trek. I would like to thank Mosaic Adventure and my guide Ramesh from the bottom of my heart for their service that made the whole trip so comfortable and for fulfilling my dream of photographing the Himalayas.
  5. Langtang valley trek was the perfect option
    By Raia Ivanova December 4, 2022
    I have been an avid trekker for quite some time now but last year I ended up breaking my leg. As a result, I was looking for a less intense trek to get back on track and Mosaic Adventure’s Langtang Valley Trek was the perfect option as recommended by friend. The trek was perfectly paced and involved many interesting stops. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the Tamang people. It was extremely fascinating interacting with them and learning more about their cultures and traditions. However, the highlight for me was definitely the day spent exploring the Kyanjin Gompa region. The Buddhist monastery present there is an absolute work of art and holds fundamental amounts of traditional and cultural importance for the region. I even had the opportunity to try the yak cheese which had a rather distinguished but delicious taste. Overall, it was a trip filled with the mysteries of exploration, thanks to my guide Rudra who was quite knowledgeable about the region.
  6. Very well taken care of
    By Sjoerd and Jannemiek December 23, 2019
    We really enjoyed the Langtang Valley Trek! The area was very beautiful and we like the change of scenery during the trek. The communication with Mosaic was very smooth, we got quick and elaborate replies. We enjoyed and felt that we were taken care of very well. BN was a great and knowledgeable guide and Suresh was always in a very good mood. The only thing we were sad about during the trek was that we couldn't go to Tsergo Ri because of the weather conditions, but still the trek was challenging enough. Although it was cold outside we still felt very comfortable the whole time! We would definitely recommend doing the Langtang Valley Trek with Mosaic.
  7. Excellent Langtang Valley Trek
    By Lenard and Yue Jing December 20, 2019
    We had an excellent Langtang valley trekking experience with Mosaic Adventure. Our guide Rudra and porter Nabin were superb throughout the entire trip! They were very patient and hospitable, always ensuring that we were well taken care of and meeting all our requests. They always made sure we were comfortable and well fed. Pre-trip, Madhav was also very responsive in answering all our enquiries and flexible in scheduling. The Kathmandu city tour by Keshar was very insightful. He is very knowledgeable. Well done to the Mosaic Team!
  8. Highly recommend the Langtang valley trek
    By Ellie Wilson November 25, 2019
    I and my friend just got back from Langtang - We can highly recommend the Langtang Valley Trek itself (forest/snowy peaks) but also Mosaic and our guide Bhumi and Porter Kumar. The trip was well organised, professional and Bhumi made sure my friend and I had everything we wanted. Also think it is a very fair price for what you get. The only watch point is the 7 hours drive from Kathmandu as the roads are pretty bad - if you can I would recommend getting a jeep as we did!
  9. Friendly and smiling team
    By Jeffrey Winchester May 2, 2018
    Just returned from trek and the mountain were awesome. My guide Thakur & my proter Harkalama were great. The Nepali people we met in the mountain were friendly and smiling. Beware the leech & remember to smile.

    Amazing trip
    By Victor Thliu November 11, 2015
    It was an amazing trip! Mosaic was very helpful and provided us with professional advice. The trek is definitely incredible and the view is fascinating. It's indeed a very good choice when you travel Nepal during the raining season. Rishi is absolutely a professional guide who helps you clear all obstacles to make you be there. He is also a great ambassador to show you the local cultures. The trip won't be so rewarding without his presence. I would like to give my sincere gratitude to them and wish them continue delivering unforgettable experience to other trekkers.

    Well organized
    By Marian Van Den Broek September 9, 2015
    Yesterday I returned from a trek to Langtang Valley Trek guided by Ram. Unfortunately the first part was very wet, 3 days and night rain. But We were lucky to end with good weather and nice views. It was well organized and I enjoyed. Perhaps next time to helambu and/or Gosaikunda. I will keep in touch. Marian Van.
