Witness the resilience and devotion of villagers in the Langtang region as they rebuild their communities after the devastating 2015 earthquake. The Langtang Valley is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Nepal which will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.
The Langtang National Park is 25% forest ranging from subtropical to alpine and includes deciduous oak and maple, pine, and rhododendron (in full bloom in spring). Expect to see various native animals, such as the Himalayan black bear, Himalayan Tahr, Assam macaque and red pandas It is rumored that the fabled Yeti has been seen here too!
The trek starts at the small village of Syabru Besi following trails through enchanting pine, rhododendron and juniper forests. You will see Yak grazing in alpine pastures – especially near Kyanjin Gompa (Buddhist monastery). Kyanjin Gompa is the most sacred monastery for the Tamang. On the rest day, that helps you acclimatize, you can follow the trail to Kyanjin Ri (peak). The following day we head up to Ganja La Pass.

The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfortable and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Langtang regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek.
This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.

With my wife we delighted in trekking with Sherpa Expedition and Trekking in Langtang Ganjala pass trekking of Langtang region. Found office on the web and chosen to believe them based on great recommendations. Everything was organized as concurred from trekking licenses to settlement in Kathmandu and airplane terminal taxi…etc. Guide knows well all around Ganja la trekking routes and their later state because it is common that a few trails are as of now collapsed due to common landslides! This can spare critical sum of time. Thank you for best Trip of the lifetime!!
