Food on the Langtang Trail

The Langtang Himal Trek can indeed be called an underrated trekking location in Nepal. It is an exemplary location because of the breathtaking vistas of the Himalayas, the symphony of falling waterfalls, and the thrills of experiencing traditional Nepalese culture. Furthermore, it is a well-infrastructured road, making it ideal for a comfortable yet distant experience of Nepal's mountains and villages.

Did you also know that the Langtang trek fee is really low, making it a very reasonable experience?

While we could go on and on about how wonderful the Langtang Valley walk is, this article is primarily on the cuisine available in Langtang during the tour. We'll also talk about the phone, Wi-Fi, and internet in Langtang. So, shall we go right in?

Langtang Food

The Langtang area of the Himalayas is a popular and easily accessible hiking destination. Trekkers may consume a variety of cuisine in the region because the path is popular. Warm/healthy meals and pleasant lodging in Langtang are necessary for a safe and enjoyable tour. If you enjoy eating, the Langtang Valley Trek is an excellent opportunity to sample traditional Nepalese cuisine prepared with distinct spices. The cuisine is determined by the local trekking committee and is the same from Syabrusi to Kyanging Gompa. Let's look at some of the dining alternatives in Langtang before learning about the accommodations.

You can select from a variety of cuisines ranging from traditional mountain fare to generally popular fare. Dal Bhat is one of the most prevalent dishes found along the path. It is the most prevalent type of food available in the highlands. Dal Bhat is a dish of rice, lentil soup, curries, vegetables, pickles, and other ingredients that is high in protein, carbs, and minerals. Aside from the traditional Dal Bhat, the area is also known for its momo. You can also eat chowmin, pizza, and a variety of other meals. Despite the fact that it is a high mountain environment, there are several culinary options.

 

  1. Langtang Trek Breakfast

Breakfast is the most essential meal of the day, and it must be comprehensive. Breakfast is served between 7 and 10 a.m. at the tea houses, allowing you to begin your Lantang hike early. After supper in the tea house in Langtang, it is easy to order breakfast. In any case, you may get Tibetan bread (which you must taste at least once) and bread/chapati with jam/honey. Breakfast includes a variety of hot soups, pancakes, oatmeal, muesli, and omelets.

 

  1. Langtang Trek Lunch

We'll have our lunch on the way out of the motel after breakfast. Before 1 p.m., a Langtang trek guide will accompany you to a decent restaurant. For lunch, we recommend the carbohydrate-rich Nepalese Dal Bhat. This limitless supply of boiled rice, lentil soup, mixed veggie curry, and pickle keeps you going all day. Nepalese people eat the same combination of foods twice a day and never get tired of it. So, obviously, it's tasty.

Fried rice, spaghetti, pizza, and Spaghetti are all available. Although these are excellent choices, the taste of foreign food on the Langtang trip may fall short of your expectations.In that scenario, momo and noodles are always available to help.

 

  1. Langtang Dinner

It is sometimes required that you have your meal in the hotel where you are staying. Dinner selections are identical to those provided during lunch. Desserts such as apple pie, rice pudding, chocolate pudding, apple filter, and others should not be overlooked.

 

  1. Langtang Drinks

The liquid possibilities are also rather remarkable. Tea and coffee will be served with Ginger Honey Lemon. There are also decent alcohol alternatives, including as local wine, beer, and rum. However, you should be aware that strong beverages at such altitudes dehydrate you and make you susceptible to altitude sickness. As a result, it's best to avoid them.

 

Langtang's Regional Cuisine

Aside from the meals on the menu, there are some additional Nepalese dishes that you should absolutely try. You may have your tea house owner create these foods for you, or you can eat these ethnic cuisines in select places. You obviously need Thakali Khana and Momo. Dhindo and Gundruk are both delicious, as are Sel roti, Yak cheese, and Nepalese curd. Tibetan Noddle soup (Thukpa) and butter tea are additional must-haves on a cold day. While in Kathmandu, you should taste Samayabaji and Yomari.

 

Water During the Langtang Trek

A bottle of water in Langtang costs between $1 and $2. Bringing bottled water on the hike is not only costly; it is also damaging to the environment. So, our best advice is to bring a reusable bottle and refill it at the hotel or a nearby tap. You can then use a purification tablet. These different pills are significantly less expensive. You might also bring a small thermos with you to carry warm water/tea. Make sure to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated throughout the walk.

 

Langtang Trek Food Cost

Nepal has become one of the most affordable destinations for travelers. However, don't be shocked if the cost of food in Langtang is a little steep. This is because every grain consumed in the highlands was either brought by mules or a helicopter. As a result, transportation costs significantly more. In such a hard alpine climate, just a few native crops like potatoes may be grown.

Breakfast ranges from $4 to $8, and supper ranges from $6 to $10, depending on what and how much you eat. Desserts range in price from $3 to $4. A cup of tea or coffee costs around a dollar, while a bottle of beer costs roughly $7.

 

Is the food nutritious?

Yes, you should not be concerned. The tea shops serve fresh cuisine using organic ingredients from the surrounding area. However, meat items may be expired in areas such as Langtang village and beyond. Because there is no power after that, the meat may not be safe. At higher altitudes, it's best to eat vegetarian meals. Otherwise, you are free to eat anything you want.
