Height can be an issue for those approaching from ocean level. One ought to be careful about height disorder. To forestall the dangers and the infection, walk gradually and ensure your body is appropriately hydrated. Langtang region traveling is a mid-slope journey. The greater part of the path is forested. Thus, on the off chance that you journey in rainstorm, you are more inclined to getting leech chomps. Take table salt or bug repellants for that. At places, there are tight paths.

  • 7. WHAT IS DIFFERENT BETWEEN TEA HOUSE TREKKING AND CAMPING ?

    Tea house treks in Nepal: while we are on trekking in mountains we sleep in the tea house (belongs to someone's house) provide trekkers a private room and bed with food from their own restaurants. Sleep in someone's small and simple guest house in mountains. Camping treks in Nepal: carry all tents, food, and kitchen crews in a big team and cook ourselves and sleep in a tent while we are on the trek. It is called camping trekking in Nepal. But nowadays camping treks are very less used because tea house treks in easier and comfortable, and cheaper. But still, in a remote area of mountain regions of Nepal, we must have to take tents where we can’t get tea houses to sleep and eat.

  • 8. WHAT TYPES OF FOOD WILL BE SERVED HELEMBU TREK ?

    Accommodation during Helambu Trek is typically in basic tea houses or lodges. These facilities offer basic dormitory-style rooms with shared bathrooms, and sometimes offer hot showers for an additional fee. Many of the tea houses also serve meals, which usually consist of traditional Nepalese and Tibetan dishes, such as dal bhat (lentil soup and rice), momos (dumplings), and various types of noodle soup. Most trekkers will also have the opportunity to purchase snacks, energy bars, and other food items along the way. Some of the tea houses offer more comfortable and better-equipped rooms for a higher price, and it's recommended to book in advance, especially during the peak trekking season from September to November. It's important to note that the quality of accommodation and food can vary greatly along the trek, but trekkers can expect basic and functional facilities in most places.

  • 10. DO I REALLY NEED A TREKKING GUIDE FOR THIS TREK ?

    Yes, a guide is required for your safety and security while on the trek. And if you want to make your trip memorable by learning a lot about the trekking region of Nepal, this is the place to be. A professional guide is essential for any trek in Nepal. Your guide will not only show you the walking trail during the trek, but he will also manage the accommodation ahead of time, recommend the best restaurants, and eat organic and hygienic food in the mountains. Which allows you to finish your trip without worrying about food? Most of the time, your guide will walk alongside you, and if you need them, you can ask them any questions about the culture, religions, nature, and landscapes of the area where you are. In addition, the guide will assist you in communicating with the locals. The majority of the locals do not speak your language. Another reason why having a guide is important is that if we get sick in the mountains, such as altitude sickness, stomach sickness, or injury from a ruck fall from the mountain, or if you fall somewhere in the stone and break your ankle or any part of your buddy, how will we be safe? If you have a guide with you in this situation, he or she will undoubtedly assist you in getting to a safe location quickly. So we strongly advise all trekkers to any region of Nepal to go with a guide, who will play a key role in making your trip in Nepal a success. You are not only hiring a guide for your trip to Nepal, but you are also helping him or her with economic support. For example, one guide (man) works at a house for a whole family who has to take care of their food, education, health, and all basic expenses, so your visit to Nepal is helping local people a lot and giving a big opportunity to work and protect his or her family and life from his or job.

  • 11. IS NEPAL IS SAFE FOR TRAVEL AND TREKKING, CLIMBING AND TRAVEL ?

    Yes, Nepal is always safe for trekking and travel. But you have to choose the right Company, and good season and a professional team. If you book your holiday with good hands definitely your holiday shall be perfect and no doubt for anything. If some people go trek individually without a guide and porter sometimes it’s not safe also. So we highly recommend taking an experienced guide from Nepal Gov. Resisted company.

  • 12. DO I NEED A TRAVEL ENSURANCE FOR TREKKING AND TRAVEL ?

    Travel insurance is highly recommended for the Renjo La Pass Trek, as the region is remote and the trek can be physically demanding. A good travel insurance policy will provide coverage for unexpected medical expenses, evacuation, trip cancellations, and lost or stolen gear, among other things. When choosing a travel insurance policy, it is important to select a policy that provides comprehensive coverage, including high-altitude trekking and adventure sports. Some policies may exclude coverage for activities such as climbing or mountaineering, so it's important to carefully read the policy details and understand what is covered and what is not. In addition to travel insurance, it is also a good idea to carry a comprehensive first-aid kit, as well as any necessary medications and other personal items, such as sunscreen, insect repellent, and water purification tablets. Trekkers should also be prepared for unexpected weather conditions and be equipped with warm, waterproof clothing and gear. With proper planning and preparation, a trek to Renjo La Pass Trek can be a safe and rewarding adventure, and travel insurance can provide peace of mind and protection in the event of an emergency.
