Langtang Valley Trek Difficulty
Langtang Valley Trek is no doubt the most beautiful trek in Nepal. It is just 62km far from Kathmandu. This Trek is the best option to have 360 degree panoramic mountain views. Beautiful valley, small rivers, and beautiful mountains are the highlights of this trek. Besides that, people, culture, traditions, etc. are also worth watching. Langtang Valley Trek is the moderate trekking destinations in Nepal.
Langtang Valley Trek is not that much difficult. As I have mentioned earlier, this Trek is moderately difficult. There are enough places for proper accommodation and food. There are no confusing trails or tough terrains. But this Trek is not easy as well. Even though you do not gain as much altitude as the Everest region, the highest point in this Trekking route hits the 5000m mark which can be the cause of altitude sickness. This Trekking is not technical at all. One does not need any mountaineering skills or rock climbing techniques to complete this Trek. And you do not need any mountaineering gears as well. What this Trekking does need is a will to travel, and a passion for exploring remote places.

Best Season for Langtang Valley Trek Trek
Famous writer Mark Twain once said, “Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.” Climate affects significantly on any Trekking and Hiking. Here, we are going to discuss about the trekking and hiking time in Nepal. Just have a look.
Hiking in Nepal can be done throughout the year. Autumn and spring are the best seasons to go on trekking in Nepal. Every season has something distinct.
Autumn season lasts for September to November in Nepal. This season is the loveliest season in Nepal. The temperature is warm even at the Mountains. The days will be clear which affords the best mountain views.
Spring Season lasts for March to May. During Spring Season Nepal experiences moderate climate. The hills will be veiled with the blossoms of Rhododendron, orchid etc.
Winter season (December to January) is little colder at the Himalayas. The precipitation will be at the form of snowfall. The days are still warmer with plenty of sunshine. The rainfall is occasional. If you like to travel in peaceful trails and extreme cold weather is not a problem for you, you can choose winter season. Hoverer, this season is considered an off-season for trekking and Hiking in Nepal.
Summer Season (June to August) in Nepal is also an off-season for trekking. Nepal experiences summer rainfall. During this season, the trails will be muddy and slippery, frequent rainfall, flood and landslides will ruin your journey irritably. However, the rain shadow region like Manang, Mustang and Dolpo offer you the best trekking moment even in this season.

Preparation for Langtang Valley Trek Trek
Benjamin Franklin once said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” If you believe you can accomplish everything by “cramming” at the eleventh hour, by all means, don’t lift a finger now. But you may think twice about beginning to build your ark once it has already started raining. Hiking and Happiness go hand in hand or foot in boot. For the same you need to prepare a lot as the above statements say. Trekking and Hiking require a good level of physical fitness. Not only good physique helps you out, but also a mental strength is vital. If you have undertaken some smaller hikes earlier, trekking will be much easier for you. You need to be familiar with trekking and climbing gears. Besides that you need to be aware of basic climbing and mountaineering skills depending upon the difficulty level. Cardio, yoga, jogging, running, swimming, etc. helps you to build up your physics. Stress Endurance Practice helps you to build up your mental capacity. Similarly, have plenty of hygienic foods including protein, carbohydrates and minerals. Here are some tips for preparing for any trekking/Climbing or Hiking in Nepal:

Altitude Sickness
Altitude Sickness is also known as Acute Mountain Sickness. It is a medical condition when our body could not adjust to the environment due to the low level of oxygen in the air. At high altitude, the level of the oxygen in the air is thin due to which our body can not adjust easily to the environment. Normally, it is more common above 2500 meter above the sea level.

  •  High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE): It is the most severe stage of Altitude Sickness because fluid is built up in the brain. It is life threatening one. The victim will be unable to walk, breathe and ultimately in Coma.

Treatment:
If you realize any other symptoms associated with Altitude Sickness other than Headache, just change your elevation. If the symptoms are severe, you need immediate medical attention. You need to consult with a physician. The best treatment of Altitude Sickness is to climb down as low as possible. If you are at a very high altitude, just climb below 4000m. If you have High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE), you might need a steroid called dexamethasone.
