A land of intrigue and mystique, of yaks and yetis, and of the greatest mountain range in the world, the mighty Himalaya, Nepal is a country that will inspire and enchant! Hike to the majestic Langtang Valley, through spectacular alpine meadows, past raging glacial fed rivers, experiencing traditional Tamang culture along the way. Wander through the chaotic streets of Kathmandu and find calm and tranquility within the temples and monasteries. Nepal, a country of astounding natural beauty, and warm, hospitable people is truly the last Shangri-La.

The price of this trip is based on staying in twin share rooms with a member of the same sex or your partner. If you wish to stay in your own room there will be a £100 charge for the 4 nights in Kathmandu. In some circumstances single rooms may not be available for example when we stay in the tea houses there is limited accommodation. We will always try to meet your requirements. The £100 must be paid with the deposit.
If you want to arrive early or depart later then we can arrange accommodation, activities and transport for you. Please contact us with any requests.

Food

If you would like all food to be included whilst trekking then there is an extra charge of £300. This does not include food whilst in Kathmandu apart from breakfast and the welcome and farewell dinners. We have decided to not include all-inclusive meals in our itineraries. The food in Nepal is incredible and we believe that you should be given the opportunity to discover the local cuisine. Kathmandu and Pokhara are a food lover’s paradise with the options being varied and plentiful.

Upgrades

If you like to indulge and treat yourself every now and then (and who doesn’t?) we are more than happy to arrange alternative accommodation. We also appreciate how lovely a little bit of lavish comfort can be when you are away from home and can recommend the following hotels for a touch of 5 star luxury in Kathmandu.

Activities

Activities mentioned in the itinerary though not included in the total price are readily available in the places we visit. Your tour leader can help you arrange these.

For optional excursions and tours to add to your trip please see our Nepal excursions page.

Trip Grading

Langtang Glacier
This trip is considered to be moderate or demanding. This depends on whether you partake in all the side trips and want to climb all the peaks. With 15 days trekking we have lots of time and can take it slowly making the most of the trip. We always have 2 guides so we can split the group and we are never more than 3 days walk from a road. This means that you can decide while trekking which route you want to take. Please look at the map for details. I have outlined a suggested itinerary and provided some options. Nothing has to be decided now and we can constantly change our plans whilst on trek. There will be no extra costs involved unless we spend extra days in the mountains or people leave the trek early and need transportation.
We trek into a fairly remote part of Nepal at higher altitudes than you are probably used to. There are a variety of steep ascents and descents, and we sometimes trek for up to 6-9 hours per day depending on the chosen route. As with most things a certain degree of fitness will make this trip more enjoyable. We can have at least 4 rest days on this trek or instead have the options to either break up days to make shorter or use the extra days to climb more peaks. The great thing with this itinerary is that we will use a couple of villages as a base and do side trips. This means that the more energetic people can go off and bag some peaks and still meet up with the rest of the group in the evening. With this itinerary I see no reason why we'd split the group for more than a day at a time and am very confident that the whole party will complete the trek together.
