Trip Overview

Langtang valley trek offers the best experience of trekking in the diverse Himalayan region. It takes you to the Kyanjin Ri that stands at 4770 m height giving the best thrilling and chilling experience similar to being in the Kalapatthar in Khumbu Region. The beautiful Langtang Lirung Himal hovering at 7246m looks over each trekker stepping in its territory from across the Langtang glacier that forms a natural line like a boundary or a warning not to get any closer. The Langtang valley is also known as the valley of glaciers as you can see several glaciers originating from mountains coming together at this valley.

Langtang Valley trek trails are the closest trekking destination from Kathmandu with only 60 km at max distance away. Foreigners with limited and short visit stay in Nepal can easily take up this trekking for the best mountain excursion experiences. Despite being so close to the capital city, the routes are wild and beyond the luxurious way of life in Kathmandu, opening up the highlands for people seeking tranquility and experiencing the rural lifestyle. The wilderness of Tibetan plateau is one to behold in this region making it one of the best trekking destinations for the thrill-seekers in Nepal. Wild but beautiful landscapes, wide panoramic mountain ranges views, unique and rare vegetation, and wildlife are some of the best features of thins wonderful trek. Rhododendron and bamboo forest, high waterfalls and the close-up views of beautiful snow-capped mountain ranges may be common attributes of the Himalayas; however, Langtang offers a distinct and true hardship of the mountain lifestyle in a better way. You will walk on the centuries-old trade Tibetan routes, visit the oldest Gompa in the region and get to taste the local yak cheese on the way.

The difficulty level is moderate. The best season to plan this trip is spring and autumn however; some trekkers also carry on the journey in winter for the great Himalayan experience.

Langtang valley trip starts with a 7-hour drive from Kathmandu to Syarbubesi bazaar. Following the night stay there, the beautiful trek begins with the walks alongside the Langtang River, dense rhododendron, bamboo and fir forests and crossing suspension bridges on the way to Lama Hotel and to the naturally beautiful and culturally rich Langtang village. After reaching and visiting the Kyanjin Gompa, you will retrace back to Kathmandu.
