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.

Will there be any surcharges or price changes?

We do not impose ‘local payments’ or have any hidden charges. There is a guaranteed ‘no price increase’ in the trip price after you have paid your deposit.

Optional Extras

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 £500 per person. 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.

Itinerary and Route

All of our itineraries are meticulously researched and well planned. They are designed to give you the most amounts of fun and excitement, whilst also giving you ample time to relax. Lost Earth Adventures takes the hassle out of organizing your trip, leaving you to sit back and enjoy your adventure!

Trip Grading

Langtang Glacier

This trip is considered to be moderate. We trek into a fairly remote part of Nepal. There are a variety of steep ascents and descents, and we sometimes trek for up to 6 hours per day depending on the chosen route. As with most things a certain degree of fitness will make this trip more enjoyable. I have put in 3 rest days for this trek and a few of the days are quite short where it is warmer elevations or more scenic so that you can enjoy taking many pictures. The great thing with this itinerary is that we will use a couple of villages as a base and do side trips. The lodges and food on this trek are of a better standard and the pass is 600m lower compared to your last trek with us.
