Wish to visit Langtang national park in December this year with my kids. My kids are 10 and 12 years old. Can I go there without trekking? Just to go for mountain viewing.
I received some helpful tips from my last question about trekking the Ganja La Pass route in Langtang. I was wondering, if we did not want to hire a guide or porter but still wanted a challenge similar (less strenuous obviously) to Ganja La... what would be some alternatives? We will have about 14 days on our trek alone starting from our first day of actually walking. If you know the names of other passes, shorter peaks, or other mountaineering activities that WOULD NOT require a guide please share those! Thanks in advance. :)
Hi. We are a small group of two with trekking/climbing experience. We have never been to Langtang before, but would like to trek the Ganja La Pass route. We are quite tight on money and will eat/sleep with friends in Kathmandu, so no accommodations are necessary. However, looking to hiring a guide (no porter), where is the best place to ask and what prices per day are we looking at? We would like to do our best to avoid a trekking agency... simply need a contact to arrange a guide. Thanks in advance for your help.
We are group of 7 pepople, and plan to take 4WD from Kathmandu to Dunche.
We heard that the road was close before Dunche 3 weeks ago because of avalance.
Do you know what are the conditions of this road now ?
Where can we find 4WD to hire for this travel?
What is the expected cost ?
I am planning on going to Dhunche (Langtang) from Kathmandu on the 20th October. Departure in the morning.It can't be other dates for me.
I would like to share a 4W Landcruiser with anyone interested. This way we reduce the cost. A landcruiser can accomodate 4 people or so apart from the driver so I am looking at 3 other people as I am travelling alone. Cost for the jeep is said to be between 100-150USD so if split 4 ways not excessive.
A 4W Landcruiser is of course more expensive than the TATA Bus but surely more confortable, slighlty faster and safer too considering the bad road up there.... It is a long journey 8 to 12 hours which has been described as "nightmare" nerve-wrecking" or "hell" by many trevellers, hence this other option I am suggesting.
Please let me know
Happy and safe travel and trekking to all!!!
