Overview

Langtang Valley, located north of Kathmandu Valley, has become a popular destination for travel and trekking enthusiasts from all around the world. It sits between narrow mountain valleys right at the base of the Himalayas. The trekking route will take you to a surreal world of traditional villages, virgin forests, and crystal clear rivers, as you experience the landscape of The Langtang region.

The Langtang Valley trek starts from Sybrubensi and follows trails along the Langtang River until you enter the Langtang Valley, which is also known as the ‘Valley of Glaciers’. The trail passes through scattered Tamang villages, verdant forests, and alluring landscapes. You will enjoy a scenic climb to Chorko-Ri as well as a spectacular walk through the rhododendron forests before you reach the Langtang village.

The trek will take you through beautiful local Tibetan villages, which will invite you to experience the Tibetan Buddhist culture and way of life. Here you will also get the opportunity to visit shrines such as Langtang Gompa, King Jing Gompa – and Kyanjin Gompa, which have been held in high regard by Buddhist pilgrims around the Langtang region for centuries.

After visiting ancient Buddhist monasteries and passing through spectacular glaciers, you will be led to Langshisha Kharka (4080m), an area marked by a number of poles crisscrossed with multi-colored prayer flags. Upon reaching the very top you will be rewarded with a 360-degree panoramic view of Mountains such as Langtang Ri, Langsisa, Ganjala Peak – and Shisapangma, the only 8000m peak in Tibet. Here you will witness a breathtaking sunset and relax as you watch the golden light descend behind the mountain peaks that surround you.

We have an outstanding team of knowledgeable tour guides and aptly experienced sherpas to give you an enjoyable and comfortable trekking experience.

After breakfast in Kathmandu, we then drive north along the river bank. After a few hours of drive, we stop for lunch and get to Syabrubesi by the evening. Syabrubesi, a small settlement before the hilltop, is very beautiful. It’s also the starting point of the short Langtang Trek and also Langtang Gosaikunda Trek. The climate is windy, yet enjoyable and offers fantastic views of Manaslu (8156m), Annapurna (8091m), and Ganesh Himal (7422m). We will stay overnight in Sybrubensi. This is your first experience of a tea house stay.

  • Duration: 10.9kms

We first cross Bhote Koshi in the morning, which means ‘Tibet River.’ On the second day of Langtang Lirung Trek, we pass through Rhododendron forests and walk both up and downhill until we reach the suspension bridge over Bhote Koshi that leads to Thulo Syabru, where we cross the Langtang River. Then, we continued a steep trail above the river and walked towards Lama Hotel. Now, we start to see some glimpse of the Langtang Himalaya range. Here are some cozy small hotels around the villages.

Day 4: Trek to Mundu 

  • Altitude: 3,430 meters
  • Walking time: 4-5 hours
  • Duration: 14.8 km

The trail above the hotel now moves towards Ghora Tabela. After the high pasture, you reach Langtang village. We start by ascending uphill on the trail to Langtang Valley, a valley that offers a picturesque view of Langtang Lirung (7227m). This was once the most significant settlement of the region and homed many Buddhist followers. But, the village was greatly destroyed by the 2015 earthquake. However, It’s recovering now. After a visit to the Langtang Village, we climb to Mundu. The culture here is the same as the Tamang Heritage trek route.

Day 5: Trek to Kyangjin Gompa 

  • Altitude: 3,870 meters
  • Walking time: 2-3 hours
  • Duration: 6.8 km

From Mundu, we continue to walk via the yak pasture of Langtang Nepal. After this, we will walk through the forest to reach Ghoda Tabela, where yaks and wild goats graze on the large meadows. We pass through several Tamang villages and Buddhist monasteries, en route to Langtang village and have a chance to explore the valley where we will stay overnight. Hiking beyond the beautiful streams and rivers, we get to the Kyangjin village, the major highlight of the short Langtang Trek. Here, we visit the local cheese factory and a small monastery; it’s going to be a beautiful journey.

Day 6: Trek to Tserko Ri and Back 

  • Altitude: 5,000m

Early in the morning, we wake up for the hike to Tserko Ri. This hilltop is the trek’s highest point and offers some of the most beautiful views of the Himalayan vistas. After a brief time on Tserko Ri, we get back to our hotel for breakfast. And then, we shall explore other areas of the village and give ourselves enough time to emerge into the local culture. Or you can just keep this as a rest day while enjoying the views of Langtang Lirung. In Kyanjin village, we visit their traditional cheese factory and yak meadows, before resting for the night.

Day 7: Trek to Lama hotel

  • Walking time: 6 hours
  • Duration: 21.6 km

Now onwards, we start to hike towards the lower altitude, bringing our Langtang Trek Nepal towards the end. We leave Kyangjin after breakfast in the morning. Heading downwards, we walk via the thick forest of Rhododendron and Pine. We retrace our way to the Lama Hotel, walking through deep forests and abundant waterfalls. This gives you the chance to enjoy the view of the beautiful mountains you may have missed during your ascend. Walking over more Tamang villages, we get to Lama Hotel by night. From here, we might also head for Langtang Helambu Trek.

Additional Info

Langtang valley trek difficulty

Langtang valley trek is about a 10-day journey in the rough mountain terrain. However, the walking days are only 6 days. From Lama hotel, we walk for about 20kms each day. Although this distance is quite long since we walk on a rather leveled path, our Langtang trekking is easier. Climb to Tsrong Ri is the most challenging part of the Langtang Trek. Otherwise, you will not need any technical skills or mountain climbing knowledge. The newbie trekkers with zero experience of high altitude trekking can also conquer the Langtang Valley trek.

Read the full Langtang Valley trek Guide. 

The major challenge during the Langtang Valley trek is its altitude. As we climb to Tserko Ri which lies at about 5000 m above sea level, the pressure of oxygen drops almost by one-third. This results in a deficit of oxygen in the blood and symptoms such as vomiting and body pain become prominent. Walking slowly and drinking a lot of water helps to prevent altitude sickness. MyEverestTrip expert guide will come in handy during emergencies condition.

Best time for Langtang Valley Trek

The trek to Langtang Valley can be possible throughout the year. However, the number of trekkers is considerably high during Autumn and Spring. Since the sky in Autumn is always clear and the chances of rainfall are low, the mountain peaks are clear up to evening. Another peak season is Spring when the temperature is high and the beautiful blooms of wildflowers in the lush forest of Nepal make everything magical. The use of red, pink, and white flowers makes everything magical and the mountains are clearly visible in the morning. These are also the months for agriculture and festivals.

Summer, Monsoon in Nepal, is the most difficult time on the trek to Langtang Valley. The rainfall occurs for about 15 days in June and July and the Langtang Lirung mountain views are often blocked. However, that trial is slippery and you need a good pair of boots to keep the leeches away. Lastly, we have winter (Langtang trek in January, February, and December) when all the regions above Lama hotel are covered in snow. In case, you don’t hate winter, walking on the snowy trail means you have the most amazing views of the mountains. In any season of Langtang Trek Nepal, you might face unimaginable challenges. It can only be completed with the right guidance of the expert team in the off-season.

Langtang Trek accommodation

Langtang Valley trek is known to be a famous tea house trekking trail in Nepal. This means that you get to stay in small houses made by locals at different stops along the Langtang Valley trek route. Those hotels have cozy rooms with a dining hall in the middle. The dining hall is heated with fire and the rooms are located around the hall. Each room has 2 to 3 small beds with a mattress and bedsheet. They also give you one blanket but it’s preferable to carry your own sleeping bag. The bathroom is usually on sharing basis, often Indian style. You can also get Wi-Fi, a shower, and electricity for a few additional dollars.

The hotels in Langtang also serve you good food on the menu. There is a large number of Nepalese, Indian, and international cuisine on the menu available from dollar 6 to dollar 9. You can have breakfast and dinner at the hotels you stay at and lunch is served along the Langtang short Trek trail.

Langtang Trek Reviews

When you are a lady traveling alone it is very important you have people you trust around you when you are trekking. This is why I always go on My Everest Trip when I visit Nepal. I know my guide Puru very well by now. He is polite and friendly and always gives me the best service.

My Everest Trip is a great trekking agency and the manager always provides me help and puts together the nicest treks. Langtang valley Trek developed a great love for this region. This year we changed the itinerary a bit and this is what I love about this agency. They listen to you and make the trip according to your wishes.

I like to do a lot of meditation when I go on treks and Puru gives me time and space to do so when I need him he is there for me. Langtang is a beautiful place and one of my favorites in Nepal and I recommend it for everybody to visit
this place.

Skønne Langtang

I efteråret 2018 kom min kusine hjem fra en rejse med tasken fuld af bedeflag, billeder og gode fortællinger. Hun havde været i Nepal og på Trek med My Everest Trip. Min interesse var vagt, og i marts 2019 var jeg den der var smuttet. Jeg blev hentet i lufthavnen af Puru og kørt til mit hotel i det pulserende Thamel, hvilket jeg synes var meget betryggende.

Langtang Valley er skøn, sikke en natur, blød, varm, farverig med de voldsomme Himalaya bjerge som en kontrastfuld kulisse omkransende det hele. Jeg blev meget betaget, både af omgivelserne, men også af den lethed der omgav min guide. Hans måde at ordne alting på når vi kom frem til vores overnatning, hans måde at fortælle på mens vi gik, var utrolig behagelig.

Jeg forstår godt at My Everest Trip nyder stor anseelse blandt deres gæster, og som min kusine videregav sin anbefaling til mig, videregiver jeg nu min anbefaling til andre med et stort Namaste!

Happy Trekking in Nepal

We were three girls taking a year off before going to university. We traveled to Asia and in April 2019 we had planned for Nepal. We were planning for Everest Base Camp or Annapurna Base Camp but did not find a company before we left home, thought we would just plan along the way. In Sri Lanka, we met a guy just coming from Nepal and he said we should do the Langtang Valley Trek with My Everest Trip because he just did and that was amazing. We contacted My Everest Trip and they responded very quickly, in just two days everything was settled at a very reasonable price.

Included in the trek were airport pickup and overnight in the hotel. After a rather tough flight we were so happy we bought a package, to be met by a friendly face in the airport and just taken to the hotel to rest. We quickly understood why the guy we met in Sri Lanka recommended this company, meeting the manager, Puru, who told us all about the trek and what to expect and met our guide.

We do not regret changing to Langtang Valley. The landscapes we walked through were beautiful: the clear rivers, waterfalls, Mountains, blooming rhododendron forests, small villages, gompas, prayer flags, and cute yaks. We visited Buddhist monasteries, saw a lot of Tibetan culture, and meet on our way so many nice people.

Our guide was the sweetest guy, very professional in his way of handling his job. All we had to do was walk and enjoy. One day one of my friends was not feeling so good and the guide took her backpack to ease her walk.

One of the highlights of the trek was absolutely the sunrise we watched from Tserko Ri on our rest day. Just sit and watch how the colors reflected on the mountains changes as the sun rises and fills you with peace. Each day had something new to offer, no matter where you turn your eyes you see something beautiful. The struggle you meet walking uphill vanishes the moment you reach the top. All the meals were included, so we did not have to think about that either. Everything was just so easy and enjoyable.

These were indeed happy days.

Great Experience in Langtang Trek

I had an amazing experience with My Everest Trip, since the first time I talked with mr Puru, he takes care of everything for my trekking, super friendly and all really well organized. I joined a group and was really cool, super happy for that experience.

For sure I will come back again next year to do another trekking with My Everest Trip.
