Difficulty Level of Langtang Trek 

Langtang Valley Trekking is a moderate-level trek. Anyone with decent physical and mental fitness can easily go for this trek. Since it is a moderate-level trek, it can’t be quickly completed. It will present you with several challenges along the way. Firstly, the total walking distance you must cover during the trek is around  70-80 Kms. The trails are mostly uphill, and you must walk 6-7 hours daily. The weather in the Himalayan region is unpredictable. You need to be all prepared for it. It might rain, or the temperatures might drop significantly. Not only that, but it might even snow, making the trails slippery.

One of the most common difficulties that trekkers face during the trek is Altitude Sickness. The Langtang region lies above 4000 m from sea level, and the oxygen level in this region is very low. Thus, there’s a high probability of trekkers suffering from Altitude Sickness. You need to consider these things before you set off to the Langtang region. This trek can be the best preparatory option for those planning to trek the Everest Base Camp Trek.
