How difficult is Langtang Trek?

We say Langtang Valley Trek is one of the easiest treks in the Himalayas. But it does not mean that the ascents and descents get any less. There will be a few steep and rocky sections too. And don't forget you will be trekking in a remote area, therefore no modern comforts and limited facilities. 

What we mean by saying that the Langtang Trek is easy refers to the excellent elevation increasing pace. The trekkers get a lot of time to enjoy the views while walking. Furthermore, our Langtang Valley Trek itinerary has ample acclimatization days, which also makes the journey less vulnerable to altitude sickness. 

You can check our Langtang Valley Trek map for a better understanding of the trail.

Training for the Langtang Valley Trekking

You do not have to do anything, in particular, to prepare for 10 days of Langtang Valley Trekking. Any individual can go on the Langtang trek if he or she is in good health. This trek is a beginner-friendly trek, perfect for new trekkers to test their waters in the Himalayas. 

As the trek demands a long walk each day, we advise you to work on your stamina and core body strength before the beginning of the journey. You have to walk 5 to 7 hours a day every day during the trek.
