1. Breakfast In Langtang Trek

Well, breakfast is the day’s most important meal, and you gotta have it complete. The tea houses serve breakfast between 7 to 10 am so that you can start the Lantang trek early. It’s easier to order your breakfast after having your dinner in the tea house in Langtang Valley. Anyways, you can order foods such as Tibetan bread (you must try this at least once) and bread/ Chapati with jam/ honey. A wide range of hot soup, pancakes, porridge, muesli, and omelets is also available for breakfast.

2. Lunch In Langtang Trek

As we leave the Hotels in Langtang Valley Trek after breakfast, we will be having our lunch on the way. A guide for the Langtang trek takes you to an appropriate restaurant before 1 pm. We recommend that you have carbohydrate-rich Nepalese Dal Bhat for lunch. This combination of boiled rice, lentil soup, mixed vegetable curry, and pickle with an unlimited supply keeps you fueled all day. Nepalese literally consume this same combination of food twice every day and yet never get bored. So, obviously, it’s delicious.

The other options include fried rice, pasta, pizza, and Spaghetti. Although these are some great options, the taste of international cuisine in the Langtang Valley trek Hotel might not precisely meet your expectations. In that case, momo and noodles items are always there for your rescue.

3. Dinner In Langtang

It’s often mandatory that you have your dinner in the Hotels of Langtang Valley Trek you spend your night. The options for dinner are similar to the ones mentioned in the lunch. And we shouldn’t forget about desserts like apple pie, rice pudding, chocolate pudding, apple filter, and more.

4. Drinks In Langtang

The options for liquid are also damn impressive. You will indeed have tea and coffee with some Ginger Honey Lemon. Also, there are good options for alcohol, including Local Wine, Beer, and Rum. However, you should know that hard drinks at such an altitude make you dehydrated and prone to altitude sickness. So, it’s really wise to avoid them.

Local Food of Langtang

Besides the food mentioned in the menu, there are some other local foods of Nepal that you should definitely try. You can either request your tea house owner to prepare these items for you or enjoy these regional cuisines in some restaurants. Obviously, you should have Thakali Khana and Momo. Dhindo and Gundruk, Sel roti, Yak cheese, and Nepalese curd are equally yum. On a cold day, Tibetan Noddle soup (Thukpa) and butter tea are also a must-have. Samayabaji and Yomari are great options to try while in Kathmandu.

Water In Langtang Trek

A bottle of water in Langtang costs $1 to $2. Having bottled water in the trek is not just expensive; it’s also harmful to the environment. So, our best suggestion is that you carry a reusable bottle and refill it in the Tea House in Langtang Valley or local tap. Then, you can use a purifying tablet. These distinctive tablets are absolutely cheaper. You might also take a small thermos to carry warm water/ tea. Ensure that you drink a lot of water and keep yourself hydrated throughout the trek.

Langtang Trek Cost For Food

Now, Nepal’s one of the cheapest countries for backpackers. However, don’t be surprised if you find the cost of food in Langtang a bit high. That’s because every grain you eat in the mountains has either been carried by mules or a helicopter. So that adds a lot of cost in transportation. Only some local vegetables and potatoes can be farmed in such a harsh mountain climate.

Breakfast costs about $4 to $8, and dinner can cost about $6 to $10- it depends on what and how much you eat. Desserts cost about $3 to $4. Tea and Coffee cost about a dollar, and a beer bottle cost about $7 in the Hotels of Langtang Valley Trek.

Is the Food Healthy?

Yes, you shouldn’t worry about that. The teahouses in Langtang Valley prepare fresh food with local organic products. However, in places such as Langtang village and beyond, the meat products might be expired. Since there is no electricity beyond that, the meat might not exactly be safe. So it’s wise to go with vegetarian food at a higher altitude. Otherwise, you can have the food of your choice.

Booking hotels In Langtang

Nowadays, there are plenty of teahouses in Langtang Valley built throughout the trek. So getting a guesthouse in Langtang Valley is not really a problem. In the off-season (June/ July and January/ February), you will have plenty of options for Accommodation In Langtang Valley.

However, in the peak season (March/ April and October/ November), it’s wise you book your stay. You might find some of these hotels online, but many of them do not have any presence on the internet. So, you can hire a guide and ask him/ her to book your Langtang Trek hotel or pay a guide for the hotel’s telephone number. Since finding these contacts is not actually an easy job, it’s wise to book a Langtang trek package. Try being on the safe side.

Charging and Electricity In Langtang

You can expect tea houses up to Lama Hotel to have plugs in the room. And even if they don’t, the charging in the dining room is free. However, once you move towards Langtang village, things will be complicated. You need to charge your phone/ camera in reception for some additional cost for the next three days. It cost $2 to $3 according to time and device. That’s why we suggest that you carry a robust power bank for the Langtang Valley trekking. Some trekkers also have solar-charged power banks.

Telephone network In Langtang

Beyond the Langtang village, you will not find phone coverage. Below the town, there is a network of NTC and cell towers. These are Nepal’s top network service provider, and the SIM card cost about $1. You can issue the SIM card with your passport while you are in Kathmandu. Along with phone calls, you can also use mobile data for the internet. However, don’t hope it to be super-fast- you might get a 3G network if you are lucky. However, that cannot be relied upon.

Internet/ Wi-Fi In Langtang

Thankfully, the facility of Wi-Fi is available up to Kyanging. However, the cost of Wi-Fi is not included in your Accommodation In Langtang Valley, and it cost $1 to $2. The speed of Wi-Fi is not that good- you can surf social media but not upload a high-quality video. So, if you plan to work while trekking in Langtang, it won’t be very reassuring. You might be able to use mobile internet below Langtang Village, but that’s not reliable. So, be prepared to be disconnected from the internet for a few days.

This short Langtang village trek is supposed to be a rejuvenating experience in the proximity of nature. So, we suggest that you really don’t worry about the internet and electricity. Just let the beauty of Langtang reach into your soul.

Note: A tourism committee has managed the tea houses of the Langtang region, and the price for food and bed is the same in all hotels. The menu is set as per the standard of the Langtang trek committee, and the price increases as you move to a higher altitude. Some discounts might be available in the off-season, i.e., winter and summer; otherwise, the price is standard.
