Gosaikunda Heli Trek
- 12 Days
Langtang Valley Trek is a classic trekking destination. The trek is suitable for both experienced trekkers and first-time travellers. This trek takes you through wonderful Tamang villages, spectacular landscapes, stunning waterfalls, Himalayan valleys, monasteries, and thickly forested areas. Langtang, like the rest of Nepal, has something special to offer at all times of the year. Langtang exudes elegance throughout the year. The glaciers and mountains of Langtang Lirung, Jugal Himal, Ganesh Himal, Dorje Lakpa, and Ganja La Pass can all be seen from the mountain trails to Langtang. The Langtang region is located in Nepal’s central and northern region. It is home to a variety of exotic animals and birds, and it is protected as Langtang National Park. On a good day, you might see red pandas, langurs, musk deer, snow leopards, Himalayan tahr, Himalayan monal, white-winged redstart, and snow patridge. When compared to other Nepalese treks, the Langtang Valley trek is well-equipped. Imagine sipping a cup of world-class Italian coffee while admiring the magnificent view of Langtang Lirung. That sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?

Our training goal is to get you physically and mentally prepared to face the climb with more confidence. The climbing goal will be to perform consistently throughout the adventure. Fitness for mountaineering requires a high overall level of physical conditioning. Both cardiovascular and motor fitness are needed to climb at varying levels of intensity and to navigate challenging terrain, often while carrying a loaded pack and at high altitudes.
Training goals are critically important and allow you to perform better at higher altitudes and enjoy the entire adventure. We suggest that you examine the physical requirements of the climb you are approaching and work on your fitness in different levels.

Establish a timeline for your training program and focus on specific conditioning for better results. Along with your workouts try and add hikes and climbs in the outdoors whenever possible to get more comfortable with different terrains. Sound fitness gained through a well-guided program is the only best way to ensure a safe and successful adventure.
Mountaineering Fitness and Training
It may also be helpful to break down your training timeline into a number of key phases. These are:
Phase 1 : Base physical fitness
The first phase of getting prepared for your climb is to focus on your base fitness. You should incorporate a fitness routine that focuses on both cardiovascular fitness and motor fitness training. For those who are not used to intense workouts this phase will help you to kickstart your training. Remember that consistency is the first most important factor in achieving any goal. Combine your basic fitness regimes along with running and stair climbing. You are now ready for outdoor adventures.
Phase 2 : Training specific for the climb
Once you have established your base physical fitness, you will need to train specifically for the climb. Depending on the difficulty and intensity of the climb, add advanced workout sessions combined with uphill training. Try and do the same fitness routines with some added loads. Strength training combined with cardiovascular and motor fitness will help with the overall conditioning. This will take your workouts to the next level and help gear up for the mountaineering challenge ahead.
Phase 3 : Outdoor Training
Nothing can replace training in the real outdoors. In the final phase of your training, you should be attempting climbs which are similar to the ones you are approaching. It is great to test your endurance outdoors. This gives you a great edge in preparing for conditions similar to the ones you will encounter during your expedition. It isn’t always possible to find similar terrains close to where you live, but it is best to find a hike as close to the climb as possible. This is the best way to test your climbing gears as well.
Training goals and timeline
Working out for at least 5 days in a week is the best way to get your body physically prepared for the climb ahead. Regular and consistent training always gives the best result and keeps you highly motivated. Make sure that you workout regularly and also give enough time for rest and recovery. Keep it balanced and have a properly planned fitness routine and never overdo exercises to the point of injury. While 2 to 3 months is a good amount of time to train, starting your training earlier allows more time to adjust and prepare.
