TREKING GRADES AND FITNESS
Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is MODERATE TREK suitable for all passionate walkers who have ability to walk at least 5-6 hours a day with a light day pack. Some days, you might even need to walk little more hours too. Walking in higher altitude is physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, if you are in excellent health with average physical fitness and have positive attitude, self confidence and strong determination, you can accomplish the Langtang valley trek successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks prior of the trip is good idea to enhance your strength and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. It is vital that you consult with your doctor before you decide and set up for the Langtang Sanctuary Trek. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease should inform NT before booking the trek.

TIPS
Tipping is the accepted way of saying 'thank you' for good service. Tips do not form part of the wages of your guides, porters and trek crew but they are very much appreciated. It is important to remember that tipping is voluntary and should be dependent on good service. Normally the tips are given at the end of the trek and this is best done as a group. Most groups will give the tips with a bit of ceremony (or sometimes a party) on the last evening, to mark the end of the trip. The amount depends on your budget and appreciation of their work.
