Langtang Short Trek
Langtang short trek is basically the Langtang base camp trek . Tourists who do not have long holiday can make Langtang base camp trek in eight days.
Langtang trek is normally designed for 10-12 days to avoid the danger of high altitude sickness . As the maximum height of Langtang base camp is only 3900m and before reaching to the base camp people trek already three days which is enough time for acclimatization, we have made new package for Langtang trek that is shorter than the general itinerary.
In Langtang trek, we climb through a wild forest of hemlocks, oaks, maples and white and pink rhododendron high above the Langtang Khola (river). View of prayer flags, beautiful field of buckwheat, potato and barley, yak pastures, traditional stones and wood houses are wonderful in this trek.
In Kathmandu we provide 2 star equivalent hotel like international guest house with bed and breakfast. In trekking we provide attached toilet room in low lands. As we arrive to higher elevation it is difficult to get attached toilet room and single room in peak season. In peak season we have to share the room. But we try to provide single room if it is possible.
Foods and drinks
In trekking we can get all kinds of food and select from menu and can have as you like. We do not recommend to eat any kinds of meat that is carried local porters from low land walking with 2-3 days. In trekking region they are not allowed to kill any animals. We recommend to eat all kind of vegetarian food and eggs. You can have meat as you arrive to Dhunche and Kathmandu. You can get all kind of drinks in trekking route. We recommend to drink Mineral water, boiled water or purified water. Purifying tablet is provided by our guide.
