Not at all, like all over high Himalayan region with ups and downs hills to encounter, it is not difficult where the trail is well-trodden by many groups of trekkers. The only tough and difficult is climb that involves high altitudes of above 3,000 m high. Trek to Langtang valley will help and support to get acclimatize before reaching much higher elevation to Gosainkund and over Laraubinaya-La Pass.
It is best to be physically fit and in sound health before and after booking this trekking adventure, good exercise is needed to keep you in shape as this trek involves many steep ups and downhill, as well a touch of high altitude.
From springtime of March to May, as well in autumn/fall season from September to November. The best season is April to May and September till November, where days are clear for excellent views of surrounding beautiful landscapes and high snow-capped peaks. With cold morning and late afternoon till night time cold and in the shade. Can get snow sometimes around this good season also, especially on higher areas and the pass can make the walk difficult in deep snow.
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. The food is excellent with a long list of menu to choose all meals served in a large cozy dining room with warm hospitality.
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. 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.
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.
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.
Chances are small, but wild-life do exists, 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.
