Beautiful rice terraces and a number of splendid monasteries are scattered all along the trail. Snow capped mountains right in front of your eyes really makes the trekking more gorgeous and outstanding.

Langtang Valley trekking includes splendid natural and cultural variances. Rhododendron, bamboo and pine forest. Swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks.

  1. Langtang Valley Trek
    My husband and I just completed an 11 day(including two days bus travel) trek through the subject area. The Tamang heritage trek was very peaceful, with an amazing glimpse of Tibetan and Nepali culture as well as stunning scenery. The Langtang Valley portion of the trek was much busier, but also provided some great trekking with amazing views. Both areas were hit very hard by the 2015 earthquake. Estimate is that 500 lives were lost in the Langtang Valley alone. Evidence of destruction is everywhere, but the resilient locals are busy rebuilding their homes. Our guide Bijay was professional, knowledgeable and fun. He has an excellent knowledge of birds and is always keen to point out and let you see the birds and other wildlife with his binoculars. He is also very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the local culture. My husband was quite ill during the early part of the trek and Bijay was quick to adjust our trekking plans in order to allow my husband to heal. He also had a thorough stash of medications to help deal with common ailments. Bijay was also attentive to our adjustment to the higher altitudes and took our pulse and oxygenation levels regularly to ensure that we were not struck with altitude sickness. Our porter, Nima Sherpa a.k.a Lama, was a quiet and gentle man with a happy demeanour and a great sense of humour. We had great fun throughout the trek learning Nepali words with this great pair. Bijay and Lama were attentive to the food we were eating and went out of their way to ensure good hygiene in the preparation of our food at the tea houses. They both had very positive demeanours. They became our friends. Highly recommend trekking with this guide/porter combo. Thanks for the great experience and we are already looking forward to trekking with you again.
  2. Langtang Valley Trek
    Namaste, I recently returned from completing an 8 day trek to Langtrang with my guide Bijay Rajkarki and my porter Ray kumarthapa . I can honestly say that it was an extremely demanding trek in many areas , in terms of the weather and terrain and conditions in some of the tea houses. However, I was as well prepared as I could be and I was completely overwhelmed by the professionalism of both Bijay and Ray who worked tirelessly together as a team to smooth everything they possibly could for me. Safety was his utmost priority and he seemed to intuitively know exactly how to make mybtrek the most enjoyable . He was a mine of information along the way regarding every interesting aspect of the trek. I would wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommend them both as guide and porter. I will never forget this unique experience! Thank you Bijay and Raj. I wish you both well!
  3. Langtang Valley Trek
    I spent the past 2 weeks trekking with Nepal Eco Adventure in Langtang National Park. My friend and I contacted Chhatra from Australia and he did a fantastic job organising our itinerary to fit in with our travel plans. From the moment we landed in Kathmandu, we were well looked after by Chhatra. He not only sorted our accommodation in Kathmandu, but set about organising an amazing trek to Langtang National Park and Gosaikunda Lakes. He introduced us to our guide and porter Dawa and Irra, who were to become good friends by the end of our two weeks together (and fierce competitors in card games- Dhumbal)! We saw the most amazing scenery everyday, but it was really the Nepali people who made our trip so special. Thank you to Dawa for being the ever social 'Red Panda' and introducing us to so many people on our walks. Thank you to Irra who not only carried our bags, but patiently taught us some Nepalese language along the way. Chhatra did an amazing job in organising our trek, and we look forward to returning to Nepal for another trek with Nepal Eco Adventure in the future. For anyone travelling to Langtang, you will read in Lonely planet about the long bus trip (9hr) to travel 120km. They are not kidding. We caught the public bus to Syabrubesi to start our trek, which took over 9 hours with a lot of bumps and upset tummies along the way. For the way home from Dhunche we opted to pay the extra money for a jeep which took about 4.5hrs. Thanks to Dawa and Chhatra for organising this, it is well worth spending the money. The cost of a jeep is 10 000 Rupees and comfortably seats 7 people + driver. We found many travellers willing to share the cost of the jeep. We highly recommend this, as the public bus is over-crowded with people, goats and chickens; and is subject to many stops by the local police/military for some time as bags are searched. Nepal is an amazing country, I am already looking forward to my next trip.
  4. Langtang Valley Trek
    I had an amazing experience doing the Langtang Valley hike this December. Since his reply to my very first email Chhatra had been really very helpful. He always provided me with honest details suiting my requirements. Before the hike and on my request he took me to a local shop where I bought a down jacket at a good price. Tshering, my guide during the trip, was amazing. He had lots of experience on Mountains and communicated really well. Almost always, we ended the hard days with either Raksi (locally distilled beverage) or Khukri (rum) having varied discussions sitting next to fire, which was delightful. We made a perfect team during the trip and indeed, became good friends. He offered me a bottle of Raksi made by his wife before my departure home. I highly recommend Nepal Eco Adventure to anyone considering Nepal as their adventure destination, and would definitely contact them myself for my next trip to Nepal.

When is the best time to visit Nepal?

Trekking at Nepal will be best during the seasons of spring and autumn. But according to the will of the trekkers, the trekking and visiting in Nepal can be managed. The trekking at the high altitude should be done during the summer time or September to November and March to May but the trekking at the low lands can be done at throughout the year.

How difficult is trekking in Nepal?

The trekking in Nepal is one of the most interesting things that the visitors in Nepal want to do. The trekking will take the visitors of Nepal to different parts of Nepal. Generally, trekking in Nepal will goes for about 5 to 7 hours per day in every trekking but the toughness of the trekking will differ from its grade. There are different types of trekking grading from the easy, medium, challenging and demanding. Normally in Trekking covers 3000 meters to 8848 meters which has categories in various stage of grade. Expedition is challenging but trekking is normal and easy.

How fit do need to be for trekking?

It depends on you; if you’re reasonably fit and enjoy walking then trekking is certainly for you. Choose the trekking route suites your fitness level. Obviously shorter treks are easier then longer ones, longer and bigger treks require a better standard of fitness. If you are in good physical condition then you do not require any hiking experience for short trekking. But if you are planning for the longer ones then you should try some longer day hikes.

How long will be the trekking?

The trekking at the different parts of Nepal will be different according to the distance of the trekking destinations. Generally, there are different places where one can go for trekking and the duration of the trekking will generally goes for about 1 to 4 weeks. But the trekking at the different places like in city tours will be short but the trekking towards the base camp of the high hills will be generally long.

What is teahouse and camping trekking in Nepal?

In Nepal, generally we can do two types of trekking. In the teahouses trekking, we will do the trekking by resting the night at the lodges or the teahouses at different places of the trekking trails. The teahouses trekking at Nepal will be comfortable than the camping trekking because the trekkers should not have to take any tensions regarding the accommodation and foods. But besides the teahouses trekking, camping trekking in Nepal is also equally popular. The camping trekking will be based on the trekking where the night will be resting at the camps, where we will set up our camps at the different parts of the trekking trails for our convenience. We will have our meals at the camps and will rest the night at camps. As compared to the lodging trekking, camping trekking is a bit difficult.

What types of food will be served during the trekking?

While trekking in Nepal, meals are prepared in tea houses, good standards of hygiene, fruit and vegetable soaked in iodine water before cooked. The food along the trail will be simple and a mix of local and international cuisine. If the trekking is camping trekking, then the trekkers will mainly be served with the local foods of Nepal and as well as continental and western foods. Due to the lack of electricity and refrigerators along our trekking route you will eat a largely vegetarian diet. In Kathmandu you will find meals in good quality tourist restaurants. Most of lodges serve boiled and filter water which is safe. It is also possible to buy the bottle of mineral water in the trek.

Does your company organize domestic flights, hotel booking and other services?

Yes. Since we are Nepal based company we refer to arrange your international flights from your home. But domestic flight ticket and accommodation during the trek will be included in our package. If you like to organize individually river rafting, sightseeing tour, mountain flight, jungle safari can be organized according to your interest.

Do I really need trekking guide?

While visiting to Nepal, trekking guides is almost mandatory to trekking in Nepal for everyone. When you hired one your trip will lot more informative and memorable. You get lots of knowledge about country. But if the trekkers is well experienced and have visited at different places of Nepal many times then s/he may not need the trekking guides. But trekking guide can play big role to make your trekking They will provide information about the trekking destination along with its surroundings. Similarly, if any problems will arise during the trekking, then the guides will solve it easily and it will be rather difficult for the trekkers themselves to solve them.
