Some difficulties during the Langtang Gosaikund Lake trek

The program of Langtang Gosaikund trek is very beautiful. Moderate-level hikes can be easy in terms of difficulty.
It depends on who is hiking and what time of year it is. Let's take a look at some of the difficulties you may face during the Langtang Gosaikund trek.

Altitude can be a problem for those coming from sea level and without excersizeing. Be careful about altitude sickness. To avoid risk and illness, walk slowly and make sure your body is well hydrated.
Langtang Gosaikund trek is a mid hill trek. Most of the road is covered with forest.

So, if you trek in monsoon, you are more likely to get bitten by lice. Take table salt or insect repellent for that.
There are narrow paths in places. If you see a yak caravan coming, move to the safe side and wait for it to pass. There are chances that they will push you off the cliff.

Experienced trekkers forbid others to smell the flowers on the trail. They say that the flowers can be poisonous, while some locals also say that the smell of the flowers can cause illness at high altitudes.
Langtang Gosaikund 16 days itinerary may be too long for those who have never trekked before. Trekking can be a bit tougher than you think. So, you may feel tired in the middle of the trek.

Langtang Gosaikund trek cost may vary for different trips. Our 15 days Langtang Gosaikund trekking trip costs USD 1195 per person. This amount includes the permit fee, food, and accommodation during the trek and much more.

FAQs

Is trekking difficult

The difficulty level of the trek depends entirely on the trek you choose.

If you are trekking for the first time, or your physical condition does not allow you (due to age or other medical conditions) you can always look for easier treks. 
Easy treks have a shorter number of days, less distance to walk in a day, and relatively less elevation gain. You don't need to have prior experience or knowledge to trek these places.

If you are adventurous and looking for some thrill, you have many options to choose from. The days are long on arduous treks. 

You have to walk for an average of 5-7 hours a day and these treks are mostly located at high altitudes. These treks also demand a good level of physical fitness.

Unlike other products, Trekking is not for the better. The difficulty level has nothing to do with the experience you can get from the trek. 
Go for what you want and what your physical abilities will allow you to do. Don't push yourself too hard. Trekking is not a competition. its comfort.
 

Is trekking expensive

It totally depends on how much you are willing to spend on your trek. You can travel in luxury or you can backpack. It all depends on how much your bank balance allows you. You can find accommodation for as little as 3-4$ per night, or you can pay up to 60-1004 per night for luxury resorts. On average, you don't need more than 10$ for food. If you are looking for affordable places, you can have 3 meals for 10$! But food in such places comes at a huge cost with low hygiene rates. 

Bottom line: Nepal is not an expensive place in terms of tourism. This is probably one of the places where you can have the most affordable luxury trek compared to the cost of a luxury trek in your country!
 

What should I prepare before hiking

It is always good to engage yourself in physical exer cise before trekking. You don't have to be all athletic and muscular to trek. An average level of physical fitness will make the journey less stressful.

Muscle aches, blisters, joint pain and back pain can be very uncomfortable while trekking. This is not possible if you exercise first.
Start exercising at least a month before the trek. You can do cardio exercises like running, jogging, long walks, cycling and swimming. Carry a light bag with you to get used to. Gym workouts can also be a good option. Just don't overdo it. 

If you're going for an easy hike, you don't need to be physically fit. But pre-exercise is still a good option. You will only make your journey more comfortable
 

What are the things I need to pack

There is a long list of essentials for trekking. The things you carry can affect your entire travel experience. So make sure that while buying any gear, do not compromise on the quality or the brand of the equipment.
 

If it’s too much to carry from your home country some of the necessary equipment can be hired or bought in Kathmandu around Thamel as well.

Most of the equipment is general and standard lists for all seasons while on trek, but may differ as per the season and duration of trekking and areas of your chosen trip.

A trekking permit is mandatory for trekking in restricted areas. Permits are available for purchase at the Immigration Department at Dillibazar, Kathmandu. For more information, refer-

http://www.taan.org.np/pages/trekking-permit-fees

Is drinking water readily available

Availability of drinking water is not a problem. The problem is its cost at high altitudes. As you increase in altitude, the price of water increases by 2-3$ per liter.

An alternative way to get drinking water is to fill water bottles at teahouses. Tea houses will provide you with boiled water for 0.4-0.7$ per liter. They are completely safe to drink. So, don't forget to carry at least two water bottles.
 

What kind of food is available during trekking

There is no need to worry about food while hiking. You will find all kinds of recipes. For breakfast, tea houses will serve you eggs cooked in your favorite style as well as pancakes, roti butter, roti, and so on. Pizza, Pasta, Momo, Chowmein and many other dishes are also available. The most favorite dish is dal bhaat. This is a typical Nepali food. Rice is served with vegetable curry, lentils, tomato chutney and meat curry. The best part- an extra helping won't cost you anything extra! Food is highly nutritious. It also keeps you fueled for long walks. 
 

What kind of accommodation should I expect

Accommodation depends on the type of trek you are going on. There are two types of trekking
 

1. Tea House Walk:
You will spend your night in tea houses. Tea houses are local lodges and hotels. 
They are small and comfortable enough. Most rooms are shared with two small beds with mattresses, pillows and sheets. If you need spare blankets, you can always ask for them. The room has a bathroom, western flush design and shower facilities. You will have to pay for hot showers and electricity.

Hostels are also available and cost much less at around 3-4$ per night. It comes with shared toilet and bathroom. 

Room cleanliness may not meet your expectations. Bring your own pillow if possible. Conjunctivitis is a common case that you can get sick from.

2. Camp treks
In this type, you will spend your nights in tented camps. Such treks are often in restricted areas. These areas do not have enough facilities to accommodate many people.  

What are the risks associated with hiking

Trekking is an extreme sport and comes with many risks. Some unavoidable hazards are avalanches, heavy rains, earthquakes, landslides and other natural disasters.

You may fall and injure yourself or catch some viral flu. The deadliest risk of trekking is AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness.  This disease occurs when great heights are attained and the body fails to adjust to the changing pressures associated with it. Anyone can fall victim to the disease and if not treated on time, it can be fatal.
 

How to avoid Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)

There is nothing you can do to prepare your body for altitude sickness. But some precautions can be taken to avoid this. they- 

  • Gain altitude slowly and gradually
  • When you pass 2000 meters, reduce the number of hours you walk and walk slowly
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Get plenty of rest. Take more rest if you feel your body is asking for it
  • Eat high calorie foods
  • Do not smoke or drink alcohol 
     
How to diagnose AMS

To detect AMS, you need to be aware of their symptoms. they-

  • Headache
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • dizziness
  • tiredness
  • Not feeling hungry
  • Abdominal pain
  • feeling unsteady
  • Shortness of breath
  • Increased heart rate
  • Difficulty sleeping  

If you notice any of these symptoms, take immediate precautions such as:

  • Avoid any high altitude climbs for the next 48 hours
  • Descend to a lower altitude if possible
  • Take complete rest as long as you feel healthy
  • Do not exercise
  • don't smoke
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Take external oxygen supply if necessary 
  • Take anti-inflammatory medication

If there is no further improvement in his health within the next 48 hours, he will have to be sent to Kathmandu by helicopter. Therefore, do not forget to issue and insurance that will cover you the helicopter reuse cost. 
 

Do I need a guide/porter to trek

There is no hard and fast rule that you should have. But traveling with them is highly advised. Some treks cannot be trekked without a guide most of them are restricted.

A guide is a person who will help you with navigation. He will also have good ideas about places to stay and eat that can be negotiated for you. They will also help you during medical emergencies. 

A porter is someone who carries your load so that you can enjoy a long walk.

If you hire them, you are fully responsible for providing them trekking gears, food and accommodation and other medical facilities. 

A guide/porter is also available these days. These are the people who play the role of both guide and porter. Hiring them will save you from incurring additional costs.
 

Can I trek alone

In some places, yes. But trekking alone in restricted areas is strictly prohibited. You will have to trek in a group or choose group joining trip. 
Many people trek alone in Nepal and have a great time. Solo trekking has its own advantages. You don't have to adjust your schedule to suit anyone. You can also follow your path as per your wish. Also, finding your way around, especially in non-restricted areas, is very easy. The routes are well marked and very direct.   

Nepal is completely safe for solo trekking. But traveling alone requires a bit more caution.
 

What is the difference between trekking independently and trekking with an agency

To hike independently is to hike without agency. If you want you can hire a guide or a porter. You can also have a trekking partner. But the whole journey depends on the way you want to take it. 

In treks organized by agencies, they will have a well-planned schedule designed for you which you have to follow strictly. Most of the time, you will be traveling with a groups. The travel agency will also provide you with a professional guide and a porter. Trekking with an agency will be slightly more expensive than trekking independently or solo. 
 

Which is the best season for trekking in Nepal

Every season as its own charm. However, the best season is spring from April to May and autumn from September to November. 

During these two seasons, most tourists come to Nepal  for adventure. These are the busiest months of the year. The weather is very pleasant and suitable for long walks. The paths are blooming with fresh leaves and flowers. The clear sky allows you to get a great view of the majestic Himalayas.

I opted for Rewati Parajuli and Mountain Magic Treks for the Langtang Gosaikunda trek, having received recommendations through word of mouth. Rewati's professionalism, understanding, and communication skills were exceptional. He possessed extensive knowledge of the region and was well-acquainted with the local people.
The porters and guides worked in perfect harmony, creating a joyful and cohesive team. Rewati's flexibility with the itinerary was reassuring, and his competence was evident throughout the journey. I truly value the friendship that developed with Rewati and consider it something to cherish. Not only was he an excellent guide, but he was also an exceptional photographer. The entire team provided a fantastic experience on the trek.
