Langtang Region Trekking Checklist

As the trek is not very far from the city, trekkers often don’t worry too much about packing for it. That is not how it ought to be. You must ensure that you pack everything you need. But, it’s important to keep that in mind while packing so that you don’t overdo it and make your backpack too heavy. Even though you will have the option to hire a porter for this trek, it is never a good idea to bring extra baggage loaded with items.

We are aware that you are keen on finding out what to pack. This thorough checklist for your trek across the Langtang region has been created using the specialized knowledge of our guides and trekkers. We want you to follow each of the parts of the checklist so that you won’t miss any of the important items or gear before heading out on the trek. So, let’s get started with the list.


As you are informed, you will be walking in this region’s high-altitude points. The trek’s altitude ranges from 1550 meters at Syabrubesi to 5000 meters at Tsergo-Ri. So, the main concept of clothing that you should keep in mind while traveling to this region is layering. If you can adjust the layers in accordance with the weather, we are confident that you will have the best time on this journey. By doing this, you can keep your body temperature stable and avoid any uncomfortable situations while trekking.

Base Layers:

The most crucial piece of clothing for winter trekking is base layers. It is worn mostly in the trek’s colder and higher altitude regions (above 3000m). However, this layer is not important in the lower region of the trek. Be sure you choose a material that absorbs moisture from your body when purchasing these layers.

Middle layers:

The middle layer is worn on top of the thermal layers. Generally, it is advised to choose fleece jackets for this layer. These layers should be lightweight and breathable which makes you move comfortably while trekking. You can also choose to wear short or long sleeve trekking shirts in the daytime as this layer.

Outer layers:

Outer layers generally act as protection while trekking. This layer consists of waterproof/windproof down jackets and trekking trousers. As they serve as outermost protection, these clothing items are crucial in the high altitude region during cold weather. while choosing these outer layers we advise you to buy high-quality materials. We recommend you buy jackets from companies like – Mountain Hardwear, Patagonia, Arc’teryx, Montbell plasma, North face, etc.
