Frequenty Asked Questions about Langtang Trek

How hard is this tour?

The highest elevation you’ll sleep at is Night 6 and 7 at Kyanjing Gompa, where you’ll sleep at (3,900 m/12,795’). The highest elevation you’ll hike to is Kyanjing Ri (4,773 m/15,659’). Spending time at these elevations will impact your stamina, sleeping and could pose health risks.
