LANGTANG VALLEY TREK

A visit to Langtang National Park, Nepal’s first Himalayan national park- formed in 1976, is a wonderland of natural beauty and rich Tamang culture and only a hop-step and jump from Kathmandu!

The Langtang Valley trek is only a short distance away from Kathmandu Valley, making its easy access a feature that entices many tourists to the region. The Langtang Valley is claimed to be one of the most spectacular locations in Nepal with its stunning mountain views and the hospital nature of the local Tamang villagers

The 2015 earthquake destroyed many homes and businesses in the region and virtually ended tourism as a source of income for locals. Today, the villages have been rebuilt and tourists are returning to this stunningly beautiful region, which in turn benefits locals.  

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 takes you to the sacred Hindu Gosainkunda lakes area where many pilgrims visit in August each year. This area is also important to Buddhists who visit the well-known monastery - Kyanjin Gompa. 

The trek begins at Syabru Besi Village and takes you through high alpine pastures where Yaks graze and also passes through dense forests and on to Kyanjin Gompa. A trek up to Kyanjin Ri (peak), offers a breathtaking 360-degree view of the Himalayan Mountains and then the trail heads down through the valley where we drive back to Kathmandu. If time is short you may wish to take a helicopter from Kyanjin, which will eliminate the return trek down the same route we took getting there. 

Trekking in this picturesque valley will leave you in awe and cause you to admire the resilience of these hardy mountain people.

Highlights of Langtang Valley Trek

  • Panoramic views of 10 peaks over 6000m.
  • Visit Buddhist Tibetan villages in Langtang Valley & explore Nepal’s first national park.
  • Stunning views points of Chorkari Ri (5050m).
  • Less tourists and more solitude and time to reflect.
  •  Experience first-hand Buddhist Tibetan culture.
  • Moderate to difficult with rugged trails and forests at an altitude of over 3000m.

ITINERARY

Expand All

Upon arrival at Kathmandu Airport you will be met by Sherpa Expedition and Trekking staff and transported to your hotel, followed by a short briefing concerning your trek. 

Leaving Kathmandu we set off on a seven-hour journey by road heading to the Langtang Valley. As the road climbs out of Kathmandu Valley we will be afforded views of the Annapurna Mountains in the west and directly ahead to Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, and the numerous peaks in the Langtang region. We first come to Trishuli Village and then continue climbing until we reach Dhunche and enter the Langtang National Park. After leaving Dhunche we drive for another hour downhill until we reach Syabru Besi where we stay the night.

The trail today takes us across the Bhote Kosi (meaning Tibet River) which flows from Tibet. The trail then climbs through sub-tropical forest and then joins the trail coming from Syabru Besi, and then ascends through oak and rhododendron forests. On the trail it is very likely we will encounter Langur monkeys in the tree tops. The trail continues up a steep incline before reaching the Lama Hotel where we stay the night.

The trail today heads uphill and on the way offers fantastic views of Langtang Lirung (7227m). At the village of Ghora Tabela (3000m) the trail comes out of the forest and gives us stunning views of the mountains loom on both sides of the valley. The trail then follows an uphill path and then opens up to a wide valley where Yaks graze in pastures during summer. As we continue we come to Langtang Village, devastated by the 2015 earthquake, that is now a pile of rubble. Many locals and tourists lost their lives here. Another half-hour and we reach Mundu where we stay the night.

From Langtang Valley we follow the trail climbing higher through pastureland as the valley opens up offering more extensive views of the enormous snow-clad peaks. We then cross several small rivers and moraines before reaching Kyanjin Village where there is a cheese factory and small monastery. We arrive here before lunch giving us time to explore the village and for those with energy to spare they can head further up the valley towards Langshisha Kharka for some spectacular views. We stay here for the night.

Today you can choose to lounge around and explore the surrounding area or alternatively follow a trail up the moraine to see the breath-taking views of the ice faces and glaciers of Langtang Lirung, or ascend Kyanjin Ri that lies right behind the village where you will have panoramic views of the Langtang peaks. Tonight we stay at Kyanjin.

Leaving Kyanjin we follow the same route down the valley following Langtang Khola to Mundu village and then on to Ghora Tabela. Along the trail we will stop for lunch and then continue until we reach the Lama Hotel where we will stay the night.

Today we continue down the trail among forested areas in the quiet mountains until reaching Syabru Besi. An alternative route is to take the route from Rimche via Sherpa Gaon to Syabru Besi, a longer route but with better scenery.

Today we travel by road from Syabru Besi to Kathmandu along a winding road with fantastic views of deep gorges, lush hillsides and terraced farmland at every turn. On arrival at Kathmandu, you will have time to do some last-minute shopping and explore the city.

Today Sherpa Expedition and Trekking will take you to the airport about 3 hours prior to departure. You will take with you some unforgettable memories of Nepal and on your flight home think about your next journey into the amazing Himalayas.

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

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. 

Meals during the trek

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.

Transportation

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. 

Physical fitness

This can be an easy trek where you often have to walk 5-6 hours a day. You don’t 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. 

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!

This trek was a brilliant experience from start to finish. Our guide Dorje was a complete legend, helping us every step of the way. The trek is a good workout, walking throughout each day - but not too hard. You can do it if you are a beginner. If you're thinking about doing this - do it!
