How are the lodge and food on route treks to Langtang valley?

The lodge is very simple, but clean and hygienic, as Langtang is rebuilding back into a better place to stay, after the damage from past earthquakes. The accommodation in lodges is of tourist budget standard, with common toilets and bathrooms but hot/cold shower available at extra cost for fuel charge to heat the water.

How far the medical facilities on trek if someone gets very sick?

The nearest hospital and medical post are at Dhunche or back to Kathmandu.In critical cases for very sick persons from any other medical reasons or accidents, as well as altitude sickness. For those who cannot continue the journey, the sick person needs to be taken back to Kathmandu. The fastest means of transport is taking a helicopter service. In this emergency case where victims have to bear all the expenses to be claimed from health and medical insurance.

Are there any facilities to charge electronic appliances and gadgets?

At present nearly all villages that we stay for overnight, do have electrical power or from private solar energy, where you can charge your electronic gadgets like camera, cell-phone or laptop, on paying a fee for each item per hour.

Do trekkers get high altitude sickness or AMS on this trek?

Our itinerary is designed with care, with much shorter days and enough time to get acclimatized, that is why Vertex Holiday is different from other local companies as we care for our clients and staff safety. Following our trekking itinerary very low chances of getting altitude sickness, as the altitude gains gradually by the time you reach higher areas you will be fine and well acclimatized by then. But in rare situations, if someone gets very sick from AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) needs the patient to evacuate to lower areas accompanied by our reliable staff. For server cases calling for helicopter services to be taken to Kathmandu for proper treatment.    

What chances of seeing some wild-life on this trek?

Chances of spotting wildlife, especially on the walk to Yala Peak base camp, as it is an undisturbed area where one can catch glimpse of wild mammals, like mountain antelopes, snow leopard, fox, deer, and wild cats including the rare endangered Red Panda with many species of birds. Depends upon the area of walks and staying longer where animals can be spotted. If lucky can see some wild-life even Red Panda, but not all trekkers have the great chance to spot the wild animals on treks. It depends upon the season as well, during winter times the animals migrate to lower hills and valleys, and in spring and summer move to higher mountainous areas for grazing.
