The Langtang Valley has long been a favorite trek due to its expansive views, authentic Tamang culture, heartwarming hospitality, and accessibility from Kathmandu".
Before the 2015 earthquakes, the trail through Langtang, Helambu, and Manaslu were favorite options for trekkers looking for a short, sharp dose of Himalayan trekking without the hassle of flying to distant trailheads. Unfortunately, the devastating earthquake that took place in April 2015 had an enormous effect on the region, but aid and reconstruction have recently reopened this valley to trekking again. Not only it is a beautiful trek, but your visit will also provide vital support for local livelihoods.
Langtang trek is a trek with a real heart. The Langtang Valley is considered as one of the most beautiful places in Nepal and was once the darling of trekkers seeking stunning landscapes and authentic culture along with heartwarming hospitality — all within easy reach of Kathmandu.
However, the visitors are less these days in the Valley as the people of Langtang are continuing to rebuild their lives after the 2015 earthquake. Survivors of the landslides caused by the devastating earthquake were forced to leave the valley, but now they have come back to reclaim their homeland, rebuild their homes and re-establish their farms.
Trekking in this picturesque valley will support the people by providing much-needed income to rebuild in a sustainable manner and secure way. This is not a charity but a business end of sustainable travel, where your travel choices can respectfully support local people while preserving their dignity, their culture and their way of life. Be wowed by nature, be humbled by the human spirit and be a part of local solutions when you choose to trek in Langtang Valley.
The trek starts at the small town of Syabru Besi. You will trek through magnificent forests to the high alpine meadows and yak pastures around Kyangjin Gompa (a Buddhist monastery). After an (optional) day hike up to the top of Kyangjin Ri (peak), where the 360-degree views of the Himalayan mountains are truly spectacular, you retrace your route back down the valley and drive back to Kathmandu. If you want to shorten your trip and running out of the time then consider adding a helicopter ride from Kyanjin, this will surely prevent you from retracing the route all the way back, you'll experience an unforgettable view that can't be had any other way.

This was our moment journey in Nepal, but advertised presently completely distinctive sees of Himalaya. Final year we did a journey to Muktinah, Annapurna locale which was fair phenomenal. This time we had three companions with us, so we were a group of 10: a direct, a partner direct and three watchmen. Langtang Valley was a bit harder than Annapurna taking us to higher rises but too the views were fabulous strolling along streams, through rhododendron woodlands and wildernesses encompassed by frigid mountain crests. The lodges were humble and a few evenings very cold, but we had warm resting packs and sufficient dress on. Amid the day the sun made us warm. We had chosen the same trekking company, Sherpa Expedition and Trekking since final year they gave us such a fabulous service. Our superguide Ram Barakoti made the trek perfect. He could be a obliging, learned and inviting individual empowering us through now and then extreme trails. Rams group was fair extraordinary, we felt that they indeed studied our thoughts and made a difference us.
