Climate and best season for hiking

Winter and summer are less suitable compared to spring and autumn. In winter, the temperature level drops below freezing, making walking to higher regions less pleasant.

With the right gears, however, you can walk into the Langtang Gosainkunda region all year round.

    Langtang Helambu Trek Review-Best Experience, Highly Recommended

    In September 2017, I did the 15-day trek in Lantang Helambu, organized by Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd. It was my first trek in Nepal. From airport pickup on arrival to taxi back to the airport at the end of the hike went as planned.

    My guide, Subash, was energetic, cheerful, and patient with the many questions I asked and made sure I was well-fed and even cooked meals sometimes along the way. Good cook too. The tea house rooms selected for each night were generally good as the options are limited, and the meals varied from good to excellent. Earplugs are recommended for places with thin walls. September turned out to be rainy or cloudy or both, so scenic views were scarce. Still, the scenery nonetheless was spectacular, and, as always, people made some interesting encounters along the way. Trekking agency is highly recommended to all when traveling to Nepal.
