For every trekking trail in Nepal, one has to be physically sound. If you do regular walking exercise in your daily life then there won’t be any problem. It is not mandatory that you have to do rigorous training and exercises before doing Langtang Trek. Trekkers reach a maximum altitude of 5,100 m from sea level which is during Ganjala Pass Trekking. However, for regular trekking, the maximum altitude is around 4,000 m from sea level. It is not considered high-altitude trekking. The most important aspect of the Langtang region is vegetation. Having green lush forests environment reduces the chance of high-altitude sickness.
Means of Transportation
Langtang Ganjala trekking doesn’t require flight transportation. Upon landing in Kathmandu trekkers get to rest in Kathmandu Hotel. They will travel to the trekking start point via road trip. From Syaprubesi or Dhunche trekkers have to walk.
After the 2015 earthquakes and the Langtang Lirung glacier outbreak, most of the houses and lodges in the region were damaged. However, the intrepid people of Langtang rose again. Nowadays there are more attractive yet traditional houses. Modern facilities equipped with teahouses are available. Trekkers can choose the level of accommodation according to their budget. The menu has a variety from local delicacies to international delicacies. For drinking water, we recommend you to have boiled water or purifying tablets in order to match your digestive system. However, for the locals the water is drinkable.
Best Season to Trek
Nepal is blessed by Mother Nature in terms of weather and climate. Throughout the year one can trek on any trekking trail in Nepal. As for the Langtang Region of Nepal, trekkers are advised to choose the Spring Season for the trek. Spring Season is the time when rhododendron blooms.

Trekking Trail Conditions
Most of the trekking trail in the region is well paved and have enough signage. But after the earthquake, some parts of the trail are under the red zone of landslide.
