Best season for Langtang Valley Gosaikunda Trekking Circuit.

The spring and autumn season is the best time for the Langtang Gosainkunda Trek in terms of weather and convenience.  This trek is doable all year round but it has a certain amount of advantages and disadvantages as well. With the onset of Monsoon/Summer, this trek offers incredible mountain scenes, but trails are slippery, and often time’s landslide blocks the trekking path.

If you try and attempt this trek during the monsoon, you’d get to witness green beautiful valleys amidst a foggy environment. In this season you will find less number of trekkers on this trek route. Otherwise, you get the most spectacular mountain views in the winter, but the chilly crisp air and freezing temperature might be dicey. Despite all these hindrances if these things do not stop you then you can very well be on this trekking journey.

However, spring and falls are the most favorable season for all trekking regions of Nepal. During this season the valley shimmers with green and a shade of pink and scarlet throughout. Wherever you tread an array of red raging rhododendrons and other flowers make this trekking path scenic. Similarly, the days are also sunny, the heat is abundant, and the evenings are quite chilly. Above all, there is every chance of you falling in love with the blessed charm of the Langtang valley Gosaikunda Region. So this eventually means that every season is tailor-made for being on this particular trekking journey.

Langtang Valley Gosaikunda Trekking Climate and Weather.

In general, the Langtang Gosaikunda varies as per the season. During spring the days tend to be warmer in the spring. The nights may be colder but is not extreme. Days gradually become longer than nights with wonderful sky views and the slight wind blows. The average daytime temperature at lower villages in Langtang Valley Trek ranges from 10°C to 20°C but nights and temperatures at higher places become unpredictable. 

Local Culture and Religion of Langtang Gosaikunda Trekking.

This panoramic abode is home to ethnic groups of the hilly and mountain regions. The locals here are predominantly following the Buddhist religious cult. As you take a walk around you will see many mani stones, stupas, gumbas, and prayer wheels. 

It is respectful to pass these objects with your right side nearest to the object, in a clockwise direction. Avoid sitting or standing on mani stones, stupas, tables used for worship, or anything that is a religious symbol, as that is considered disrespectful.

Langtang Valley Gosaikunda Altitude Sickness Trekking Tips.

Even though the chances of anyone getting altitude sickness on the Langtang Trek are rare, you can get it if you are or have started from the sea level. Your body may have a difficult time adjusting to the higher altitudes. There is actually no fixture to getting altitude sickness. Anyone can get it. So, it is always better to take the necessary measures to avoid it.

If you get altitude sickness on your trek, please inform your guide and group members immediately. Your guide will provide you with immediate first aid. Do not try to ascend any further after that. Take rest for an entire day. If the symptoms do not go away after proper rest and medication, you should go back down to lower altitudes. While ascending you may feel symptoms like nausea, headache, difficulty in breathing, increased heart rate, and uneasiness. And, if the symptoms persist for a longer duration then know that your body could not resist the altitude variation. If you feel these symptoms, please let your guide and your group know.

Travel and Medical Insurance.

Travel and Medical insurance are mandatory for all customers looking to travel to Nepal with us. The Travel Insurance must cover both the medical and emergency evacuation cost.

Traveling to the wonderful bounties of the Himalayan Region of Nepal comes with both seen and unforeseen risks. It is always best to prepare for any unforeseen risks that may occur while traveling. Many insurance companies offer travel insurance services over the internet. You can choose from a wide variety of insurance companies at your convenience. There might be a slender chance of getting minor health issues, injuries, and, most importantly-altitude sickness.

It is always advisable to choose an insurance policy covering the helicopter rescue cost from the mountains in case of significant accidents and acute mountain sickness (AMS). During such extreme cases of emergency evacuation, a helicopter service is the only way out of the mountains. This includes a rescue team for both  ground evacuation and rescue. This is why we require your travel insurance to cover the cost of helicopter services and evacuation from the Himalayas.

Before you plan your trip with us, do make sure that your travel insurance covers all the costs mentioned above from a reliable company.

Washing and Toilet Facilities.

Primarily during the Langtang Valley Gosaikunda trekking the washing and toilet facilities are quite basic. At the lower elevation, most lodges offer western-style toilets. As you move higher on the trail you’ll find squat toilet facilities. Showers do not always have hot water and most tea houses charge for the use of hot water.
