After a good night’s sleep and having a hearty breakfast, we begin our exciting Kathmandu city tour with our private guide and driver. Today we will explore two beautiful and most popular tourist attractions world heritage site in Kathmandu Valley.

First we drive to Boudhanath Stupa, which is said to be the biggest in the world and a major center of Tibetan culture in Kathmandu. The stupa is designed to be like a giant mandala (a representation of the Buddhist cosmos).

Our next Place is Pashupatinath Temple. This shrine is devoted to Hindu deity Lord Shiva and is said to be the most holy Hindu shrine in Nepal. Hereabouts we see a cremation ritual of Hindus at ‘Aryaghat’, the cremation area of the temple. This cremation site is used for the once royal family of Nepal and also for the simple Nepalese people who live within the country. After visiting this place, we return back to our hotel, refresh, do some shopping for our trek the next day, checking our trekking gears, sorting our bag packs and then we have an early dinner and retire to bed, most probably.

After an early breakfast we a scenic drive north from Kathmandu to Syabru Besi. Parts of the road are beautiful roughshod and the situation of the road often changes upon the season. We will travel via Trisuli Bazaar where the Indian Technical Mission completed the dam and hydroelectric project. Finally we drive on to Syabrubesi where we will make our first camp and final preparations for our trek. While passing along the road on the bank of Trishuli River we catch a glimpse of Ganesh Himal, terraces and rolling green hills. As we pass through Dhunche we feel as if we are heading towards deep land. At the same time, we also realize that the road after Betrawati is still under some construction. We bunk out overnight in a teahouse lodge.

Finally, on scaling the mountain passes, we enter at Kyangjin Gompa.There is also a little monastery and a government-operated cheese factory that we meet up hereabouts.

An extraordinary array of mountains surrounds us - Langtang Lirung and Kyimoshung, whose vast glaciers tumble to the valley floor. Connecting the Tibetan border is Dorje Lhakpa, Ganchempo and an entire host of 6,000+m peaks at the same time as across the valley are Naya Kang and the Ganja La pass. For the very active there is the chance to climb Tsergo Ri (often written Cherko Ri) – at 4,984m. This is a full day's hike (8-10hrs) but worth it for the views from the top. Another alternative is to hike towards the Tibetan border and Langshisha, where we get magnificent views of the mountains bordering Tibet.

Drinking Water during Langtang Valley Trek

For many of us, the perfect choice may be to go for the mineral water. After all, it’s sealed and safe to drink, plus it provides an income for the local traders – right? Regrettably, things are never quite that simple. Mineral water produces a vast number of knock-on problems for mountain societies.

While it does provide an income to local people it also generates an extraordinary, heart-breaking amount of waste and spoiling. Most places simply do not have the resources to do anything with the empty plastic bottles – and they burn them, releasing toxic gases into the air, or leave them in piles just out of sight of travellers, where they take more than 450 years to decompose.

Take, for example, Langtang Valley Trek, The recommended amount of water intake on a high altitude trek like this is 3-4 litters a day. The trek is 7 days long. That’s more than approximately 21 litters and 21 plastic bottles, which won’t decompose until the year 2466 – per person.

For a full MST group of 12 people, just one trip will result in more than 252-300 mineral water bottles. And the salt in the wound is that plastic doesn’t decompose at high altitudes, so those 252 or more bottles will be up there forever. But what can you do? You have to drink, so how can you get around the problem?

The Alternatives: The great news is that there are really various options that will help you out of the bottled water trap. Here are just four of the best. All you have to do is pick which one is right for you.

Striped- Steripen is the most trusted model on the market. This technique uses exactly the same process as most mineral water undergoes before it is bottled. It’s UV filtering, exactly the same treatment as the majority of bottled water undergoes to be purified, but on the go. The technology has been around for much longer than you think, but it’s only recently been competitively priced enough to be on the market. SteriPen is an American company; other UV filters are also available.

Boiled water– This isn’t always an option if you’re out and about, but boiled water is an excellent option for safe drinking water on trek. Boiling the water kills any nastiness lurking there. It is the safest and most convenient option. Most lodges serve it, and it is great to ward off the cold. Prices range anywhere between NPR 50 and 120 per liters. 

Which means, the cost of drinking water will be around $30-$40 for 7 days langtang valley trek. Please note that 3-4 liters of fully boiled drinkable water will be provided daily during whole trek. you can book our all inclusive langtang valley trek package for safe and hassle free service. There are no hidden cost.

Purification tablets– Water refining tablets or chemicals like chlorine dioxide are other frequently used. They are easy to carry and cheap to buy. However, they are not as effective as UV filters or boiled water and need a few hours to act. Besides these, LifeStraw and iodine-based treatments are also available but have their drawbacks.

Packing List for langtang Trek

The following checklist should help you with your packing. As a general rule, you should always try to keep the weight of your equipment to a minimum.

Additional info:

Therefor your duffel bag should not weigh more than 12 kg/26.5 lbs.

INSIDE YOUR DAYPACKS:

Daypacks can be any size for hiking, but we always recommend the smaller, the better. Around the 25l to 30l size is good for EBC trek.

For instance: Water bottle, Extra money for drinks, souvenirs & tips, sunhat, camera, important documents, toiletries, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, rain gear, music (iPhone) etc.

If you don’t have your own down jacket & sleeping bag, don’t worry. We will provide you 4 season sleeping bags and good down jacket with a hood for complementary use. Good quality sleeping bag and down jacket are most important for high altitude trek.

KATHMANDU - SYABRUBESI (122 KM) = 7-8 HOURS DRIVE

While it's possible to reach Syabrubesi from Kathmandu by public bus, however, we strictly do not recommended you to travel by local bus because of the road condition.

Our guest safety and comfort will always be our utmost priority. Therefore, We always provide clean and fully sanitized 4WD Jeep for soti khola. It takes about 6 to 7 hours drive from Kathmandu to Soti Khola.

The driving distance is approximately 122 Kilometers form Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. You'll be much safer, be more comfortable, and reach your destination much faster by private Jeep with experience driver.

Altitude Sickness:

If you trek to a high altitude without letting your body adjust to the new elevation, you may experience altitude sickness. Symptoms include headache and nausea. If you return to a lower elevation, your symptoms will likely go away without needing treatment. In severe cases, altitude sickness can be life threatening.

When we hike above 8,000 to 12,000 feet above sea level our bodies need to acclimatize to the decreasing amount of the oxygen available. You may have symptoms if you travel to a high altitude without giving your body time to adjust to less oxygen. Even if you’re physically fit, you can still experience altitude sickness.

Mountain Sherpa Annapurna sanctuary trek itinerary is carefully designed to avoid from altitude sickness. Over the years we have come up with the best itinerary to aid in the acclimatization process. Our trek itinerary is fully flexible & can modify on the spot if required.

Remember the trek to Himalaya is not a race. Even those in the best shape will suffer from altitude sickness when they race to the top of the mountain too quickly. Go slowly, it will give your body time to adjust to the mountain. However, during the acclimatization process, you may experience some of the following symptoms.

  1. Tiredness
  2. Minor Headache
  3. Troubled sleep
  4. Loss of appetite/nausea
  5. Shortness of breath
  6. Cough
  7. Palpitation
  8. Swelling of the hands and face

Each Person acclimatizes at different rates. Our best suggestion is to take your time and drink plenty of water. These symptoms may not indicate the onset of A.M.S. and if you experience them it does not necessarily mean that you should not continue. All our Sherpa guides have extensive first aid training and we request you to talk with the Sherpa guide at all times should you believe you have any symptoms in order that we can efficiently monitor your symptoms. The only cure for Acute Mountain Sickness is to descend.

You must remember that this is your holiday and you do not want to stress out about the possibility of getting sick from the mountains. Do everything slowly. Drink lots of water. And enjoy the Himalayas views. If anything does happen and you unfortunately get sick, let your guide know right away –Please note that your guide has ultimate responsibility and may ask you to descend if symptoms persist.


Travel insurance:

Travel insurance is necessary for any trip, but is mainly important when undertaking activities such as high altitude trekking in remote regions where medical facilities or assistance may not be close at hand. You’ll enjoy your adventure better with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have the right insurance cover in place should a mishap occur. This can be anything from medical emergencies, trip cancellation, trip interruption, delays, lost or stolen luggage to a full helicopter rescue off a mountain.

Obtaining travel insurance before you leave home is strongly recommended. This way, if something happens, and this is rare, you will not be out of pocket a tremendous amount of money. Mountain Sherpa trekking will provide a letter and your invoice to submit to your insurance in this case to help expedite your processing.
