Langtang newbie


I hope to find a companion to do the Langtang trek early-mid October. I am 45, a novice and like to keep things relaxed. However, I would like to avoid any paths that have high drops as I unfortunately suffer from vertigo (yes, seriously).

Have about 2-3 weeks to be flexible with and am very interested in visiting villages and experiencing the local culture/s (and I’ve heard this area is particularly interesting in this regard).

  7. Hi Alan,

    We are two people leaving for Langtang around the 8th of October for about 7-8 days. As the buses seem to be booked, we are thinking to rent a jeep. Let us know if you would be interested in sharing.
