Home > Nepal > Langtang Helambu Trekking
The Langtang valley is aptly called ‘the valley of glaciers’. Here, mountain rise, soaring towards the sky. The valley offers pine forest, swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snowcapped peaks, grassy downs and meadows strewn with daisies and wild primal. A variety of sights including Buddhist monasteries, a cheese factory, yaks, glaciers and mountain lakes make this trek an exciting one. You will visit Gosainkunda, one of the holiest lake in Nepal, where thousands of pilgrims throng each August to bathe in its cold and spiritually refreshing water.

One hour drive brings the trekkers to Sundarijal, the starting point of this trek, where there are sparkling waterfalls flowing down through an oak forest. This trek offers the experience of being in a typical Sherpa village and many ancient monasteries. It is a golden chance to learn about life in our villages.

Prepare

In addition to obvious items such as hiking boots, warm clothing, UV sunblock etc., here is list of things that you might not have considered taking along, but that can greatly enhance the quality and comfort of your journey.

Soft and light shoes (sneakers or kung-fu shoes are perfect) -
after a long hike in inflexible hiking boots, you will be extremely happy to have some light and soft footwear to to wear around the lodge or in the village.

Lightweight knapsack -
this is very useful for short trips away from your lodge, and will save you having to lug your large backpack along. It should be big enough for your camera and a change of clothes and sleeping bag, if you plan to spend a night away.

Lightweight sleeping bag -
as most (all?) lodges can offer you blankets, a light sleeping bag should be sufficient for the journey. Taking a light bag will save you valuable space in your backpack.

Fabric bandaids -
blisters on the feet can turn a wonderful walk into a hell. Bandaids (sticking plasters) should be immediately applied to any area of the foot that there is irritation and friction - don't wait for the blister to develop before doing this. However, only fabric made bandaids will stick to a sweaty foot. Others (even those that claim to be water-proof) will fall off in minutes. A good alternative to bandaids is duct tape. Works great for blisters and also proves invaluable in many other ways.

Personal First Aid and Emergency Gear -
First aid kit with moleskin and bandages designed to cover blisters Sunscreen lotion. Energy snacks. So many different types are available buy a variety and sample them to learn which brand gives you the biggest boost. An emergency kit in case you get lost. Include a whistle, compass, space blanket, string, duct tape, matches and iodine tablets. Flashlight and extra batteries, Binoculars, Knife, Extra pair of prescription glasses, Bug Repellent.

Are You in Good Enough Shape?-

You may walk a mile or two on pavement comfortably, but can you walk four or five miles a day ? or more? on varied terrain without collapsing on the couch for the rest of the afternoon? Once you've chosen a trip, Ghale Treks will inform you, what level of physical fitness you should be at to take the trip. Then, create a plan to ensure you are ready physically.

Ways to Get in Shape for Walking and Hiking -

For many trips it's okay to start your training a month or two before you leave for vacation. Spending time at the gym working with weights and on a treadmill, StairMaster or stationary bike is one route. Supplement the training with long walks or hikes on weekends, preferably on dirt trails instead of pavement. Jogging on toughens you up and increase your agility and stamina.

Bring the Right Pack -

Bring a pack that fits your body comfortably? whether it's a day pack to hold your water bottle, snacks, sunscreen lotion and jacket ? or a pack designed to hold enough gear for a multi-day hike through the mountains.
