Langtang valley trek

Hi, Im doing the Langtang valley trek in October without a guide, do I need to book tea houses in advance or can I just turn up?, I would rather not book as I want to stay flexible with dates.

Thanks Dan


Hello Dan,

October is one of the busiest season across the trekking region in Nepal. It's better to book your tea house in advance for a better one but if you are okay with the available adjustment at some points you don't need to book it. Find a complete guidance about



Hello Dan,

For the Langtang Valley trek in October, it is generally recommended to book tea houses in advance, especially if you prefer to have a flexible schedule. While it is possible to turn up and find accommodation on the spot, there are a few reasons why booking in advance can be beneficial:

Availability: October is one of the peak trekking seasons in Nepal, and Langtang Valley is a popular trekking destination. Tea houses can fill up quickly, especially in popular overnight stops. By booking in advance, you ensure that you have a place to stay and don't have to rely on availability upon arrival.

Preferred Accommodation: By booking in advance, you have the option to choose from a variety of tea houses and find one that suits your preferences in terms of location, facilities, and ambiance. If you have specific requirements or preferences, it's better to secure your desired accommodation ahead of time.

Busy Period: October is a busy month for trekking in Nepal due to favorable weather conditions and clear views. During this time, tea houses along the Langtang Valley route can be quite busy, and availability may be limited. Booking in advance allows you to avoid any inconvenience or disappointment.

To maintain flexibility with your dates, you can consider booking tea houses a few days ahead rather than for your entire trek. This way, you have some control over your itinerary while still having the peace of mind that you'll have a place to stay.

Keep in mind that Langtang Valley trek is a remote area, and facilities can be basic. The availability and quality of tea houses can vary, so it's a good idea to do some research and read reviews to ensure you select reliable and comfortable options.

Enjoy your trek in Langtang Valley, and have a wonderful time exploring the beautiful Himalayan region!
