    Best time to do trek to Langtang Valley Trek 10 Days

    Trekking in the Langtang region is most adventurous and pleasant when the trail is bloomed with numerous flowers & vegetation and has a mild climate. And it's spring and autumn. The months from March to April and October to November are a perfect time of the year weather-wise to do the Langtang valley trek 10 days. You get to enjoy a pleasant trek, and the mountain views are stunning too. 

    You'll not face rainfall or snowfall in the spring and autumn seasons. The temperature ranges from 18C to 5C (lower to higher elevation). If you want to do a trek in winter, then we suggest going in early December or late February for the best trekking experience. Trekking in the Langtang valley during the monsoon is the worst time. The trails are muddy and slippery. The mountain views are blocked, and there are huge risks of landslides.

    We stayed overnight in a guest house during the Langtang valley trekking. The accommodation we use on the trail is simple. The rooms are small and twin shared with a common washroom. You'll be spending the nights in the home of the locals and therefore get to live an authentic mountain lifestyle. The guest house offers a comfortable bed and clean blanket for a good night's sleep. However, you still may feel cold in the mornings and nights, so carry a good-quality sleeping bag.

    It's better to choose veg because most of the time, meats are not well frozen and may give you an upset stomach. Confirm with the service provider how old the meat is before having it. There are other options, such as roti, stir-fried veggies, momo, noodles, Tibetan bread, thukpa, sandwich, etc.
