Symptoms of Altitude Sickness may start once you reach 1500-2000 meters and upwards. If you gain altitude rapidly without letting your body adapt to the thin oxygen at higher altitudes, you are most likely to suffer from Altitude Sickness. But if you plan for acclimatization days to your itinerary, you are good to go.
The itinerary includes acclimatization days to avoid Altitude Sickness. The sickness is common at high altitudes. Please note that sickness is a topic to be taken very seriously. Here are some few extra preventions:
- Avoid climbing rapidly, give your body some time to adjust
- Drink more water, not less than 5 liters a day
- Eat more, eat often, and eat healthily
- Listen to your body, do not ignore symptoms
- Do not skip acclimatization days
- Be prepared in case of an emergency

The valley of Glaciers
From: Australia | On: 16 Mar, 2019
Our tour guide described Langtang valley as the valley of Glaciers and we only felt what he meant after actually trekking to Langtang. The valley is the home to Tamang and Sherpas in Nepal. It was an opportunity to learn more about the lifestyle of mountain people.
It is really inspiring observing the hardworking and dedicated people from the remote settlements of Nepal. Nepalese people are really welcoming and are always ready to help. I loved the scenery and the Himalayas that we got to scope after only a short trek towards the Langtang region.
Thanks to CoreTreks and the guiding team for making this trip possible. We highly recommend that you book your trip to Nepal via CoreTreks as they are highly experienced and have a good knowledge in trekking and mountaineering.
Well-deserved excellent rating
On: 12 Aug, 2019
After having amazing trip to Langtang Valley with great pleasure I’d like to recommend Core Treks Ltd. as excellent, well organized and reliable trekking agency for Nepal. The whole trip that included not only trek to Langtang, but also sightseeing of Bhaktapur and Kathmandu was professionally planned (including organizing accommodation, transportation and guidance) from beginning to the end, allowing us to fully enjoy and focus on the beauty of this incredible place on earth. Well-deserved excellent rating. Looking forward to doing more treks with Core Treks Ltd.
An absolutely fantastic trek
From: Poland | On: 11 Aug, 2019
That was an absolutely fantastic trek. We landed at Kathmandu airport, where our guide has already waited for us with a car and took us to our hotel, one of the best in the city centre, I guess. We received a welcome tea, while waiting for our room to be ready. In the evening we were invited to a welcome dinner, to a fancy restaurant to experience a Nepali cuisine and watch Nepali traditional dances. The next day we visited Bhaktapur and stayed again in a very comfy hotel. In the early morning we had left for Syabrubesi, where our trek started. We were going by a crowded jeep for 9 hours on a hot day, so the trip wasn't a nice one, but the breathtaking landscapes let us forget about it. The whole trek was hard for me as, I'm not the person who does sports everyday, but the experience was rewarding - great satisfaction of reaching the Kyanjin Ri peak, feeling united with the nature, being in its heart. Unforgettable! I didn't suffer from a mountain sickness, but I did have sleepless nights because of the high altitude. Our main guide was a very nice guy, speaking very good English and took a very good care of us. The last day of our trip we spent again in Kathmandu on sightseeing the famous temples with a qualified city guide. To cut the long story short, Core Trek agency and the Langtang trek is defenitely worth recommending.
A short but exciting trek
From: Italy | On: 11 Oct, 2018
My friends and I had a beautiful trip to Langtang valley. We were really excited to visit the local settlements and experience the Himalayas. I am obsessed with valleys and Langtang is the best so far.
We trekked alongside the Himalayas of Langtang range. It was really inspiring to see hardworking and welcoming people of Nepal. We got to visit different Gompa and learn about Buddhist religion. It was great.
Thanks to CoreTreks and the professional guiding team for making this trip possible for us. I highly recommend CoreTreks to anyone looking to visit Nepal for trekking purposes. They are the best.
Filled with natural beauty
From: United Kingdom | On: 24 Jun, 2017
We booked out trip to Langtang valley because we had never experienced trekking for more than a week. We are really glad that we chose Langtang valley as we got to explore a lot about Nepal that we could not read or hear about. The local settlements, the mountains and all the natural beauty filled my heart with joy.
I would love to visit Nepal again. Thanks to CoreTreks and the team for guiding us throughout the journey and explaining all the details about everything that we asked. Also thanks to the professionals who help us plan our trip.
