Overview

The Langtang valley trekking is one of the closest treks to Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. The trip takes you through the Langtang National Park which lies directly north of Kathmandu. Langtang Region is as lofty and remote as any of the Tibetan highlands, and its peaceful rural vistas will warm your heart despite its close proximity to Kathmandu. This region was once a prime route for trade and commerce with Tibet. The route map of Langtang valley trekking was introduced to the tourists only after 1976.  

The Langtang region is now becoming as popular as the Everest & Annapurna regions of Nepal…

For those wishing to experience the joy of trekking the highlands in Nepal but are limited on time, the Langtang Valley Trek is just perfect! You will walk along the Langtang river, through beautiful Rhododendron forests, and to several glacial lakes. This will be an adventure you’ll remember for the rest of your life. This area is also called the Valley of Glaciers because it is surrounded by icy glaciers that came from the huge Himalayan peaks. Langtang Valley is dominated by the Himalayan peaks of Langtang Lirung (7,234 m), Langtang Ri (7,205 m), Dorje Lakpa (6,966 m) and Langshisa Ri (6,427 m). Tserko Ri, which is 4984m high, is the highest point on the trek. The beauty of this region is truly seen from Tserko Ri.

This trip is great because it gives you a chance to see the rare red Panda and has great views of the Langtang mountain ranges and valley. In addition to this, we also get to go to one of the Yak Cheese factories in the area, which sells real Yak cheese, and Kyanjing Gompa, an old Buddhist monastery with great views of Ganchenpo Ri, Langsisha Ri, and other mountains.

The people that reside in the Langtang region’s highlands are Nepalese, yet the majority of them have Tibetan ancestors. They even resemble Tibetans and have deep cultural and religious ties to Tibet. The different kinds of rhododendron, dense bamboo forests, dancing waterfalls, and close-up views of the snow-capped Himalayas are all great reasons to visit this area. All of these things make Trekking the lovely Langtang Valley one of the most different treks that are close to ancient Kathmandu.

Best Season for Langtang Valley Trekking

This area can be visited at any time of year. However, the monsoon season is not ideal. The trail gets slippery and dangerous. The optimum time to visit and photograph this path is from February to May in the spring and September to November in the autumn. Autumn is the best time to go on a walk in Langtang. From September through mid-December, the weather is moderate and constant. Trekking at this time of year provides you with clear mountain vistas, fresh air, and gorgeous blue skies.

March to May is the second finest trekking season in the Langtang region. The season’s long, warm days will suit your trip and make it even more memorable.

Summary of the Langtang Valley Trek Itinerary

Langtang Valley Trek begins in Syabrubesi, which is about seven hours from Kathmandu. From Suryabesi, we went to Langtang National Park to start our hike. Following the path of the Langtang river, and walking through beautiful green forests and villages, we get to Lama Hotel, where we stay for the night.

From Lama Hotel, we walk to Langtang village, where we can see Langtang Lirung in all its glory. In the meadows of this area, we can see horses, donkeys, Yaks, and other animals grazing. There are also camps set up by nomads in the area. In 2015, the entire Langtang village was buried by a landslide due to the earthquake. However, everything is back to normalcy. High-quality to basic standard lodging and restaurants are now functional.

The next day, we go to one of the Yak Cheese factories and an old Buddhist monastery called Kyanjing Gompa. This place has great views of Ganchenpo Ri, Langsisha Ri, and other mountains. This will be our home for two nights before we go on a day hike to Chortari Ri and Tserko Ri the next day to see the beautiful lakes, glaciers, and mountains of the Himalayas. From Tserko Ri, you can really see how beautiful this area is. We go on a day hike and then go back to Kyanjin Gompa.

In return, we go back to the Lama Hotel, where we stayed last time. You can learn more about the culture and traditions of the Tibetan-descended Tamang people. The views of the green hills here are beautiful. From the Lama hotel, we end our trip at Syabrubesi. The trail back offers a new view of the valley and the national park, which will be a great addition to your photo collection. We are picked up by jeep at Syabrubesi, and our Langtang Valley Trekking ends in Kathmandu.

How difficult is Langtang Valley Trek?

The trek through Langtang Valley is less strenuous than those to the base of Mount Everest, Mount Manaslu, and Annapurna. Kyanjin Gompa is the summit of this hike (3,870m). Day hikes to Kyanjin Ri or Tserko Ri, on the other hand, will take you to an altitude of about 5,000 meters.

The trail through the Langtang valley traverses through forests and stunning landscapes, beginning at the bank of the Langtang River. You’ll spend four to six hours walking every day and gain roughly 500 to 1000 meters in altitude. There is less distance to cover daily compared to other treks, making the hike less taxing on the body. Hiking experience is not necessary for this trip. However, if you want to enjoy your hike, it will help to have done some preparation or have previous hiking experience.

To sum up, a trek through the Langtang valley is not as challenging as some of Nepal’s other treks.

Kathmandu sightseeing tour

Boudhanath Stupa

Kathmandu is considered the historical and cultural heart of the country. As a result, the city is a popular destination for tourists, trekkers, and people looking for exciting new experiences. The city is a wondrous fusion of cultures and influences from all over the world, including Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, and, more recently the western way of life. Patan and Bhaktapur are two major cities that are located in close proximity to Kathmandu. Both cities share plenty with Kathmandu with their own personal touch. Patan has more of a Buddhist flavor while Bhaktapur is more Hindu. You will be given a guided tour of Kathmandu city for the full-day sightseeing tour. After a tour of the durbar squares, we visit the Pashupatinath temple, which is the most well-known and revered Hindu shrine in the country. You will also visit Boudhanath, which is the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal. Swambhunath known more popularly as the monkey temple, which contains Buddhist and Hindu shrines and is a testament to the religious harmony that exists in the country.

Kerung Highway

Kathmandu – Kerung Highway

Following an early breakfast, we take a jeep drive from Kathmandu and begin the seven to eight-hour voyage to Syabru Besi. The trip itself includes many beautiful sights. For the people who live in this Syabru Besi, this is a significant village town that also functions as a trading post. The residents of the entire Langtang area travel down to this marketplace to purchase the goods they consider necessary as it is the main business hub linked to the capital Kathmandu. During the drive, we are also afforded the opportunity to view the breathtaking panoramic view of the Himalayas, which includes the Annapurna, Manaslu, and Ganesh Himal, as well as the famous peaks of the Langtang region.  We will spend the night at a lodge in Syabru Besi.

Trek from Syabrubesi to Lama hotel

Trekkers on the way to Lama Hotel

Waking up at Syabrubesi, we have a hearty breakfast and make our way precipitously along a small stream, which we cross via a suspension bridge. We follow the pristine Langtang river for a large portion of the trek today.  Our stroll through the oak, rhododendron, and bamboo forests will be enchanting.  The forests are home to an abundance of wildlife, including red pandas, yellow-throated martens, wild boars, and plenty of langur monkeys. These forests are also home to Himalayan black bears, too. However, you would have to be incredibly lucky to encounter a red panda. We finally reach Lama hotel in the evening where we stay for the night.

On the way to Langtang village

At Riverside

We leave the Lama Hotel in the wee hours of the morning after breakfast to proceed with our climb higher above the Langtang Khola. The grade of the trail continues to get steeper as it goes on.  The path ends at a log bridge, and if we continue climbing up from there, we will reach the verdant meadows of Ghora Tabela at an altitude of 3000 meters. We grab lunch here. We are going to pass by a few lodges as well as a police checkpoint. As you continue on, the trail eventually opens up into a broad valley with yak pastures and scattered Tamang villages that have water-driven mills and prayer wheels. After climbing up to an altitude of 3500 meters and navigating across a stream, we finally make it to the Langtang valley. Langtang village serves as the administrative center for Langtang National Park. It is home to Tibetan-style homes with flat roofs, hotels, and agricultural lands.  Many memorials commemorating the lives lost during the avalanche caused by the 2015 Nepal Earthquake are found here.

Trek to Kyanjin Gompa

About to reach Kyanjin Gompa

Today, after waking up, we will travel along a gentle path on the side of a hill, passing a large mani on our way to a well-known Chorten and then through a small village with stone-built homes. As we move down into a lower level of the riverbed, the valley changes its shape to become U-shaped. The distance we cover on foot today is relatively low, giving us more time to adjust to the altitude and investigate our surroundings. This region is well-known for its cheese and curd, and a cheese factory can be found right in the middle of it all. Straight after making it across the suspension bridge, the trail will provide you with a breathtaking view of the glacier known as Langtang Lirung. Many mountaineers who are just starting out use this glacier as a training ground before they tackle more difficult peaks. At Kyanjin Gompa, after having lunch, we go to a local bakery and then to a factory where real Yak Cheese is being made fresh. There is clear evidence of Tibetan culture and ancestry in this part of the world. At Kyanjin Gumba, we decide to spend the night.

View from Tserko Ri

View from Tserko Ri (5,000 m)

A day of rest and acclimatization to the new environment is included in today’s itinerary. This is fantastic for the health of our bodies. We have the opportunity to visit various fascinating locations, such as a cheese factory, a cheese factory, and a nearby monastery. We have the option of ascending Tserko Ri, which is situated at an altitude of 5,000 meters and offers breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains that are wonderfully spread out right next to us. As we make our way toward Tserko Ri, we stop to enjoy a lunch that we brought with us and then check out the location where Guru Rinpoche left his footprint. After fording a river, we continue our ascent up a steep trail while taking in the breathtaking views of the mountains surrounding us, including Langtang Peak, Ganjala Peak, Ganchenpo Peak, Nayakhang Peak, and Langtang Valley. When we get to the peak, we will have the best possible view in all directions of the Himalayas, including Sisapangba, which is located in Tibet, as well as Langsisa and Dorje Lakpa, which are located in Nepal.

Trek down along the bank of Langtang river

Trek down along the bank of Langtang river

After getting some much-needed rest and a hearty breakfast, we set out on our journey back to the Lama Hotel. The descent follows the same path as the ascent. The fact that Yaks will occasionally be seen butting heads along the route makes for an exciting and memorable experience. As we get closer to the valleys, the trail that we are on will become noticeably less difficult. As we make our way back to the Lama Hotel, we decide to spend the night here and then go out and discover the surrounding areas.

 

Trek to Syabrubesi from lama hotel

Trek to Syabrubesi from Lama Hotel

Langtang valley is 80 km away from the capital city of Nepal and it is located on the north side of Kathmandu. Langtang region is a Himalayan valley border with Tibet – an autonomous region of China. It lies in the Rasuwa district of the Bagmati Province in Nepal and it is also the nearest national park to Kathmandu valley.

Langtang valley consists of Langtang national park. The park is home to a broad range of climatic zones, including subtropical and alpine. A quarter of the park is surrounded by trees. The evergreen pine, the deciduous oak and maple, as well as several rhododendron species, are examples of the flora that are found here. More than 250 different bird species can be found in this region, along with the Himalayan black bear, Himalayan tahr, Assam macaque, snow leopard, yak, red panda, and much more.

Langtang valley trek is a mountain region hiking journey. You have to hike through gigantic hills, gorges, forests, rivers, and mountains. And, you need lots of preparation before the expedition. Therefore, we suggest you book this trek as much as early.

Last-hour booking is also acceptable. However, we recommended you book early so that you will have enough time for the preparation. At least 2-3 months early booking in advance is best for this trek. Within this period you will get enough information about pre-training and trekking equipment.
We will offer you the training plan if you reserve this trek early with us so that you are physically prepared before the journey.

Limited ATM facility is available only in Dhunche and Syabrubesi. Further up, you won’t get ATM service. Most of the time in Dhunche and Syabrubesi ATMs do not work due to frequent power cuts. So, we suggest you manage cash before the trek in Kathmandu. You can exchange local currency at Thamel.

There is no restriction or prohibition for the solo traveler. Therefore, hikers can trek solo in the Langtang valley. We all know that the weather and conditions in mountainous areas are erratic, and anything can happen at any time. Hence, we never advise travelers to go hiking alone. There are many missing solo hikers in this region since it is open for tourism. Hence, we strongly suggest travelers hike with a local guide or porter for their safety.

Langtang valley trek offers all these services at an additional cost.
Internet Service: Every teahouse has WIFI and they charge an extra cost of around NRS 200 – 400. From Lama Hotel to Kyanjin Gompa, the WIFI connection is not strong as in Kathmandu.

Charging facility: With each and every stop, you will get charging facilities with an additional charge. From the Lama hotel, tea houses have solar power and the price might be a bit higher than in the lower elevations. Charging cost ranges from NRS 150 to 300 per hour.

Hot shower: As like in the Everest and Annapurna regions, you can also get a hot shower facility on the Langtang valley trek. At Syabrubesi, local lodges provide running hot showers with attached bathrooms. Above the Syabrubesi, you will get a bucket hot shower at an extra cost. The price of the hot shower ranges from NRS 200 to 400 per shower.

If the weather is gloomy all day these services may not be available because in the mountain region power is generated by solar.

Langtang valley trek is a moderate trek that goes up to the 5000 meters altitude at Tserko Ri. But you will spend overnight at the height of 3,800 meters only. Relatively, this trek is easier than the other treks of Nepal such as Annapurna Base Camp and Everest base camp. Thus, you don’t need to be fit extremely. However, doing some training beforehand is much beneficial for your enjoyment. We suggest you prepare at least 8 weeks before your trip and do regular morning walks, join the gym, swimming, climb upstairs, or do short hiking at least once or twice a week. On this trek, your porters will carry your belongings and you have to carry your personal items only.

 

If you book this trek on full board service, all your meals, transports, accommodations, permits, and manpower will be included. However, there are some extra expenses that you need to pay yourself while on the trek. Such as cold drinks, alcoholic drinks, and bakery items are not included in your package. Besides, uses of WIFI, hot shower, and battery charging are also not included.
Therefore, additional 15-20 dollars per day is required for the extra expenses if you want to use these services. If you drink beers, bakery items, and cold drinks frequently, you might need more than the given price.

Langtang valley region is linked with the Tibetan border therefore; the excess of land transport in this region is good enough. You can get local or private vehicles such as jeep, bus, van, etc for the transport direct from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. In our package, you will get public jeep transport from Kathmandu to Sybarubesi, and in return. Syabrubesi is the starting point of this trek. The flight option is not available on this trek.

Therefore, you only have the option to take a drive by private or public vehicles. For your comfort ride, you can hire private jeep transport instead of a local bus or jeep.

Trekking to Langtang valley doesn’t require an insurance policy. However, we recommend you to be insured before joining this trek for your financial protection in case of any emergencies. It is a moderate-level trek that goes through remote mountain terrain, rivers, and jungles. The excess of transport and hospitals are out of reach. In this region, the fastest option to get to the well-equipped hospital is by helicopter.

There is always a risk of natural calamities or health issues while traveling to the mountainous region. So, if you are fully insured all of your medication and helicopter rescue expenses will be covered by your insurance company.

The maximum elevation of this trek is 5000 meters at Tserko Ri. Tserko is a viewpoint that offers exceptional views of the mountains and glaciers around. From Kyanjin Gompa, it takes 5 hours to reach the Tserko Ri viewpoint. We will pay our visit at this point on day 7 (rest day at Kyanjin Gompa).

Trekking to the high mountain regions of Nepal isn’t easy as hiking into the European Alps. It requires lots of prior preparation. Most importantly, choosing the right trekking gear plays a vital role to make your trip pleasant. For your general ideas, you should have good hiking boots, thick clothes, headlights, crampons etc.

However, it is also based on the trekking season. If you trek in the winter season you must have crampons to tackle with the icy trails. If you trek in the monsoon season, it is advisable to carry a raincoat and waterproof hiking boots, etc. Please ask us through email for the proper trekking gear information once you book this trek with us.

On this trek, tea houses provide foods menu for visitors. If you booked a full board service with us, you will get 3 meals every day that includes Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner with tea or coffee at breakfast. Trekkers can find continental, Chinese and Indian as well as Nepalese dishes that are prepared at the tea houses along the trail.

You will be served porridge, muesli, boiled/fried egg, omelets, toast, pancakes, and soups along with tea or coffee for breakfast.
For Lunch and dinner, you can order pizza, fried rice, plain rice, fry potatoes, chowmein/spaghetti, pasta/macaroni, or momo. Instead of all these international dishes, you can order local Daal Bhaat for your lunch and even dinner. Daal Bhaat is the common food menu of every Nepalese for lunch and dinner.

Regarding the accommodations, twin-sharing common local lodge accommodations will be provided throughout this trek. In most of the places, you will get sharing toilets with other trekkers. Only at Syaburbesi, you will have an attached bathroom with a hot shower running from the tap.

You will be guided by our native local guide and supported by local porters. Your guides are well experienced, knowledgeable, and helpful and were born in the mountain region of Nepal. All our guides are fully trained and certified by the Nepal government. Each of our guides has led this trek more than 10 times with positive feedback from our previous clients.

Our guide speaks English well enough and takes care of you every step while on the trek. On this trek, your guide will take all of your responsibility such as accommodations, meals, transport permits, etc. And porters are the heroes of the mountain region trek that is behind the scenes. They transfer your belongings from one place to another destination safely throughout the trip for your comfort and pleasant hike. Thus, we would like to request all our guests to give respect to those heroes who make our trip successful.

Nepal is a mountainous country, and most of its regions are remote. There is no access to roads, communications, or hospitals due to the isolated topography. Accordingly, the Langtang valley trek is also one of the high mountain region treks that go through remote Himalayan jungles, rivers, and glaciers.

Therefore, if you book this trek through a local trekking company, a local guide who is familiar with the path will accompany you and lead you securely to your goal. There are a lot of side paths on the trail that might take you the wrong way. And if you miss the proper path there is no prospect of electronic communication.

Even more, in case of any health issues or natural disasters, your guide will certainly take action and transfer you to a safe place. Moreover, if you got an accident or AMS problem, your guide will contact your agency and arrange for your immediate helicopter rescue to the Kathmandu hospital.

You can leave your unnecessary items (while on the trek) at the Kathmandu hotel without extra costs. All our hotel representatives in Kathmandu provide storage facilities to our international clients. If you have any important documents or belongings please inform us prior to the trek so that we can store them securely.

Don’t worry; you are with the right hand. We will do everything to save your life if there will be any difficulties with you in the mountain.

Our native guides are well-trained and authorized by Nepal’s government. They are even trained in first aid medicine and they are eligible for medication in case of an emergency. If you got altitude sickness or any other health issues, you will be certainly taken to the nearby hospital if available. If there aren’t any health posts, you will be transferred to the low elevation as soon as possible. Even more, if your health condition is getting worse your guide will contact our office in Kathmandu and ask for an emergency helicopter rescue. Then after, you will be transferred to the well-equipped hospital in Kathmandu for your further treatment. All these rescue and treatment expenses should be covered by your insurance policy.

In the case of a natural disaster, you will be taken to a safe place with the help of our guide and porters. If the trails are blocked due to natural calamities your guide will try to find the safest and alternative routes. However, if there wouldn’t any option to go further up or return back to Kathmandu, you will be rescued by helicopter and taken to Kathmandu. And your helicopter evacuation expenses should be covered by your insurance policy.

Best trip in Lantang, Nepal

I was member of the group and traveled in Nepal to do Langtang and Gosaikund trek. Treks were very well organized by Glorius Himalaya Trekking and lasted 12 days. During that time our guides Buddhi and Roshan were organizing our stay, travel, walking, food etc. They responded to our needs and wishes as much as possible, and had excellent communication skills. Buddhi was able to motivate us even when sometimes things looked impossible. Since, we were group of 19 people it was demanding to satisfy us all but they made it. Roshan was quick and efficient in making decisions but also flexible. The weather was nice with great views, only nights were cold. We reached Kathmandu after trekking without having any difficulties. Our goals were reached and new experiences recorded not only with camera but in our hearts.

Langtang and Gosaikunda Trekking
By Marijana Jarža, Croatia
December 2, 2018

I had been dreaming about visiting the Himalayas range many times in the previous decades of my life.However,this trip came to me unexpectedly,at the time when I had,already, lost any hope of the dreams coming true. So,except of standard mountaineering that I have been used to for a long time,I did not have any notion of what to expect from the whole journey in reality. But,the Glorious Himalayas Trekking has more than lived up to the expectations of the whole group of 19 members I was in; thanks to the wonderful organisation,the exeptional interpersonal skills and care of our guides Buddhi and Roshan as well as the skillful logistic and cooperation between all the porters.Due to their great patience and kindness, everybody reached their point. Langtang and Gosaikund Trekking were,also, my first opportunity to visit Nepal and get to know with its cultural identity. I am sure that I will come back.I sincerely recommend the agency.

CheckList

Overview

The Langtang valley trekking is one of the closest treks to Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. The trip takes you through the Langtang National Park which lies directly north of Kathmandu. Langtang Region is as lofty and remote as any of the Tibetan highlands, and its peaceful rural vistas will warm your heart despite its close proximity to Kathmandu. This region was once a prime route for trade and commerce with Tibet. The route map of Langtang valley trekking was introduced to the tourists only after 1976.  

The Langtang region is now becoming as popular as the Everest & Annapurna regions of Nepal…

For those wishing to experience the joy of trekking the highlands in Nepal but are limited on time, the Langtang Valley Trek is just perfect! You will walk along the Langtang river, through beautiful Rhododendron forests, and to several glacial lakes. This will be an adventure you’ll remember for the rest of your life. This area is also called the Valley of Glaciers because it is surrounded by icy glaciers that came from the huge Himalayan peaks. Langtang Valley is dominated by the Himalayan peaks of Langtang Lirung (7,234 m), Langtang Ri (7,205 m), Dorje Lakpa (6,966 m) and Langshisa Ri (6,427 m). Tserko Ri, which is 4984m high, is the highest point on the trek. The beauty of this region is truly seen from Tserko Ri.

This trip is great because it gives you a chance to see the rare red Panda and has great views of the Langtang mountain ranges and valley. In addition to this, we also get to go to one of the Yak Cheese factories in the area, which sells real Yak cheese, and Kyanjing Gompa, an old Buddhist monastery with great views of Ganchenpo Ri, Langsisha Ri, and other mountains.

The people that reside in the Langtang region’s highlands are Nepalese, yet the majority of them have Tibetan ancestors. They even resemble Tibetans and have deep cultural and religious ties to Tibet. The different kinds of rhododendron, dense bamboo forests, dancing waterfalls, and close-up views of the snow-capped Himalayas are all great reasons to visit this area. All of these things make Trekking the lovely Langtang Valley one of the most different treks that are close to ancient Kathmandu.

Best Season for Langtang Valley Trekking

This area can be visited at any time of year. However, the monsoon season is not ideal. The trail gets slippery and dangerous. The optimum time to visit and photograph this path is from February to May in the spring and September to November in the autumn. Autumn is the best time to go on a walk in Langtang. From September through mid-December, the weather is moderate and constant. Trekking at this time of year provides you with clear mountain vistas, fresh air, and gorgeous blue skies.

March to May is the second finest trekking season in the Langtang region. The season’s long, warm days will suit your trip and make it even more memorable.

Summary of the Langtang Valley Trek Itinerary

Langtang Valley Trek begins in Syabrubesi, which is about seven hours from Kathmandu. From Suryabesi, we went to Langtang National Park to start our hike. Following the path of the Langtang river, and walking through beautiful green forests and villages, we get to Lama Hotel, where we stay for the night.

From Lama Hotel, we walk to Langtang village, where we can see Langtang Lirung in all its glory. In the meadows of this area, we can see horses, donkeys, Yaks, and other animals grazing. There are also camps set up by nomads in the area. In 2015, the entire Langtang village was buried by a landslide due to the earthquake. However, everything is back to normalcy. High-quality to basic standard lodging and restaurants are now functional.

The next day, we go to one of the Yak Cheese factories and an old Buddhist monastery called Kyanjing Gompa. This place has great views of Ganchenpo Ri, Langsisha Ri, and other mountains. This will be our home for two nights before we go on a day hike to Chortari Ri and Tserko Ri the next day to see the beautiful lakes, glaciers, and mountains of the Himalayas. From Tserko Ri, you can really see how beautiful this area is. We go on a day hike and then go back to Kyanjin Gompa.

In return, we go back to the Lama Hotel, where we stayed last time. You can learn more about the culture and traditions of the Tibetan-descended Tamang people. The views of the green hills here are beautiful. From the Lama hotel, we end our trip at Syabrubesi. The trail back offers a new view of the valley and the national park, which will be a great addition to your photo collection. We are picked up by jeep at Syabrubesi, and our Langtang Valley Trekking ends in Kathmandu.

How difficult is Langtang Valley Trek?

The trek through Langtang Valley is less strenuous than those to the base of Mount Everest, Mount Manaslu, and Annapurna. Kyanjin Gompa is the summit of this hike (3,870m). Day hikes to Kyanjin Ri or Tserko Ri, on the other hand, will take you to an altitude of about 5,000 meters.

The trail through the Langtang valley traverses through forests and stunning landscapes, beginning at the bank of the Langtang River. You’ll spend four to six hours walking every day and gain roughly 500 to 1000 meters in altitude. There is less distance to cover daily compared to other treks, making the hike less taxing on the body. Hiking experience is not necessary for this trip. However, if you want to enjoy your hike, it will help to have done some preparation or have previous hiking experience.

To sum up, a trek through the Langtang valley is not as challenging as some of Nepal’s other treks.

Kathmandu sightseeing tour

Boudhanath Stupa

Kathmandu is considered the historical and cultural heart of the country. As a result, the city is a popular destination for tourists, trekkers, and people looking for exciting new experiences. The city is a wondrous fusion of cultures and influences from all over the world, including Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, and, more recently the western way of life. Patan and Bhaktapur are two major cities that are located in close proximity to Kathmandu. Both cities share plenty with Kathmandu with their own personal touch. Patan has more of a Buddhist flavor while Bhaktapur is more Hindu. You will be given a guided tour of Kathmandu city for the full-day sightseeing tour. After a tour of the durbar squares, we visit the Pashupatinath temple, which is the most well-known and revered Hindu shrine in the country. You will also visit Boudhanath, which is the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal. Swambhunath known more popularly as the monkey temple, which contains Buddhist and Hindu shrines and is a testament to the religious harmony that exists in the country.

Kerung Highway

Kathmandu – Kerung Highway

Following an early breakfast, we take a jeep drive from Kathmandu and begin the seven to eight-hour voyage to Syabru Besi. The trip itself includes many beautiful sights. For the people who live in this Syabru Besi, this is a significant village town that also functions as a trading post. The residents of the entire Langtang area travel down to this marketplace to purchase the goods they consider necessary as it is the main business hub linked to the capital Kathmandu. During the drive, we are also afforded the opportunity to view the breathtaking panoramic view of the Himalayas, which includes the Annapurna, Manaslu, and Ganesh Himal, as well as the famous peaks of the Langtang region.  We will spend the night at a lodge in Syabru Besi.

Trek from Syabrubesi to Lama hotel

Trekkers on the way to Lama Hotel

Waking up at Syabrubesi, we have a hearty breakfast and make our way precipitously along a small stream, which we cross via a suspension bridge. We follow the pristine Langtang river for a large portion of the trek today.  Our stroll through the oak, rhododendron, and bamboo forests will be enchanting.  The forests are home to an abundance of wildlife, including red pandas, yellow-throated martens, wild boars, and plenty of langur monkeys. These forests are also home to Himalayan black bears, too. However, you would have to be incredibly lucky to encounter a red panda. We finally reach Lama hotel in the evening where we stay for the night.

On the way to Langtang village

At Riverside

We leave the Lama Hotel in the wee hours of the morning after breakfast to proceed with our climb higher above the Langtang Khola. The grade of the trail continues to get steeper as it goes on.  The path ends at a log bridge, and if we continue climbing up from there, we will reach the verdant meadows of Ghora Tabela at an altitude of 3000 meters. We grab lunch here. We are going to pass by a few lodges as well as a police checkpoint. As you continue on, the trail eventually opens up into a broad valley with yak pastures and scattered Tamang villages that have water-driven mills and prayer wheels. After climbing up to an altitude of 3500 meters and navigating across a stream, we finally make it to the Langtang valley. Langtang village serves as the administrative center for Langtang National Park. It is home to Tibetan-style homes with flat roofs, hotels, and agricultural lands.  Many memorials commemorating the lives lost during the avalanche caused by the 2015 Nepal Earthquake are found here.

Trek to Kyanjin Gompa

About to reach Kyanjin Gompa

Today, after waking up, we will travel along a gentle path on the side of a hill, passing a large mani on our way to a well-known Chorten and then through a small village with stone-built homes. As we move down into a lower level of the riverbed, the valley changes its shape to become U-shaped. The distance we cover on foot today is relatively low, giving us more time to adjust to the altitude and investigate our surroundings. This region is well-known for its cheese and curd, and a cheese factory can be found right in the middle of it all. Straight after making it across the suspension bridge, the trail will provide you with a breathtaking view of the glacier known as Langtang Lirung. Many mountaineers who are just starting out use this glacier as a training ground before they tackle more difficult peaks. At Kyanjin Gompa, after having lunch, we go to a local bakery and then to a factory where real Yak Cheese is being made fresh. There is clear evidence of Tibetan culture and ancestry in this part of the world. At Kyanjin Gumba, we decide to spend the night.

View from Tserko Ri

View from Tserko Ri (5,000 m)

A day of rest and acclimatization to the new environment is included in today’s itinerary. This is fantastic for the health of our bodies. We have the opportunity to visit various fascinating locations, such as a cheese factory, a cheese factory, and a nearby monastery. We have the option of ascending Tserko Ri, which is situated at an altitude of 5,000 meters and offers breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains that are wonderfully spread out right next to us. As we make our way toward Tserko Ri, we stop to enjoy a lunch that we brought with us and then check out the location where Guru Rinpoche left his footprint. After fording a river, we continue our ascent up a steep trail while taking in the breathtaking views of the mountains surrounding us, including Langtang Peak, Ganjala Peak, Ganchenpo Peak, Nayakhang Peak, and Langtang Valley. When we get to the peak, we will have the best possible view in all directions of the Himalayas, including Sisapangba, which is located in Tibet, as well as Langsisa and Dorje Lakpa, which are located in Nepal.

Trek down along the bank of Langtang river

Trek down along the bank of Langtang river

After getting some much-needed rest and a hearty breakfast, we set out on our journey back to the Lama Hotel. The descent follows the same path as the ascent. The fact that Yaks will occasionally be seen butting heads along the route makes for an exciting and memorable experience. As we get closer to the valleys, the trail that we are on will become noticeably less difficult. As we make our way back to the Lama Hotel, we decide to spend the night here and then go out and discover the surrounding areas.

 

Trek to Syabrubesi from lama hotel

Langtang valley is 80 km away from the capital city of Nepal and it is located on the north side of Kathmandu. Langtang region is a Himalayan valley border with Tibet – an autonomous region of China. It lies in the Rasuwa district of the Bagmati Province in Nepal and it is also the nearest national park to Kathmandu valley.

Langtang valley consists of Langtang national park. The park is home to a broad range of climatic zones, including subtropical and alpine. A quarter of the park is surrounded by trees. The evergreen pine, the deciduous oak and maple, as well as several rhododendron species, are examples of the flora that are found here. More than 250 different bird species can be found in this region, along with the Himalayan black bear, Himalayan tahr, Assam macaque, snow leopard, yak, red panda, and much more.

Langtang valley trek is a mountain region hiking journey. You have to hike through gigantic hills, gorges, forests, rivers, and mountains. And, you need lots of preparation before the expedition. Therefore, we suggest you book this trek as much as early.

Last-hour booking is also acceptable. However, we recommended you book early so that you will have enough time for the preparation. At least 2-3 months early booking in advance is best for this trek. Within this period you will get enough information about pre-training and trekking equipment.
We will offer you the training plan if you reserve this trek early with us so that you are physically prepared before the journey.

Limited ATM facility is available only in Dhunche and Syabrubesi. Further up, you won’t get ATM service. Most of the time in Dhunche and Syabrubesi ATMs do not work due to frequent power cuts. So, we suggest you manage cash before the trek in Kathmandu. You can exchange local currency at Thamel.

There is no restriction or prohibition for the solo traveler. Therefore, hikers can trek solo in the Langtang valley. We all know that the weather and conditions in mountainous areas are erratic, and anything can happen at any time. Hence, we never advise travelers to go hiking alone. There are many missing solo hikers in this region since it is open for tourism. Hence, we strongly suggest travelers hike with a local guide or porter for their safety.

Langtang valley trek offers all these services at an additional cost.
Internet Service: Every teahouse has WIFI and they charge an extra cost of around NRS 200 – 400. From Lama Hotel to Kyanjin Gompa, the WIFI connection is not strong as in Kathmandu.

Charging facility: With each and every stop, you will get charging facilities with an additional charge. From the Lama hotel, tea houses have solar power and the price might be a bit higher than in the lower elevations. Charging cost ranges from NRS 150 to 300 per hour.

Hot shower: As like in the Everest and Annapurna regions, you can also get a hot shower facility on the Langtang valley trek. At Syabrubesi, local lodges provide running hot showers with attached bathrooms. Above the Syabrubesi, you will get a bucket hot shower at an extra cost. The price of the hot shower ranges from NRS 200 to 400 per shower.

If the weather is gloomy all day these services may not be available because in the mountain region power is generated by solar.

Langtang valley trek is a moderate trek that goes up to the 5000 meters altitude at Tserko Ri. But you will spend overnight at the height of 3,800 meters only. Relatively, this trek is easier than the other treks of Nepal such as Annapurna Base Camp and Everest base camp. Thus, you don’t need to be fit extremely. However, doing some training beforehand is much beneficial for your enjoyment. We suggest you prepare at least 8 weeks before your trip and do regular morning walks, join the gym, swimming, climb upstairs, or do short hiking at least once or twice a week. On this trek, your porters will carry your belongings and you have to carry your personal items only.

 

If you book this trek on full board service, all your meals, transports, accommodations, permits, and manpower will be included. However, there are some extra expenses that you need to pay yourself while on the trek. Such as cold drinks, alcoholic drinks, and bakery items are not included in your package. Besides, uses of WIFI, hot shower, and battery charging are also not included.
Therefore, additional 15-20 dollars per day is required for the extra expenses if you want to use these services. If you drink beers, bakery items, and cold drinks frequently, you might need more than the given price.

Langtang valley region is linked with the Tibetan border therefore; the excess of land transport in this region is good enough. You can get local or private vehicles such as jeep, bus, van, etc for the transport direct from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. In our package, you will get public jeep transport from Kathmandu to Sybarubesi, and in return. Syabrubesi is the starting point of this trek. The flight option is not available on this trek.

Therefore, you only have the option to take a drive by private or public vehicles. For your comfort ride, you can hire private jeep transport instead of a local bus or jeep.

Trekking to Langtang valley doesn’t require an insurance policy. However, we recommend you to be insured before joining this trek for your financial protection in case of any emergencies. It is a moderate-level trek that goes through remote mountain terrain, rivers, and jungles. The excess of transport and hospitals are out of reach. In this region, the fastest option to get to the well-equipped hospital is by helicopter.

There is always a risk of natural calamities or health issues while traveling to the mountainous region. So, if you are fully insured all of your medication and helicopter rescue expenses will be covered by your insurance company.

The maximum elevation of this trek is 5000 meters at Tserko Ri. Tserko is a viewpoint that offers exceptional views of the mountains and glaciers around. From Kyanjin Gompa, it takes 5 hours to reach the Tserko Ri viewpoint. We will pay our visit at this point on day 7 (rest day at Kyanjin Gompa).

Trekking to the high mountain regions of Nepal isn’t easy as hiking into the European Alps. It requires lots of prior preparation. Most importantly, choosing the right trekking gear plays a vital role to make your trip pleasant. For your general ideas, you should have good hiking boots, thick clothes, headlights, crampons etc.

However, it is also based on the trekking season. If you trek in the winter season you must have crampons to tackle with the icy trails. If you trek in the monsoon season, it is advisable to carry a raincoat and waterproof hiking boots, etc. Please ask us through email for the proper trekking gear information once you book this trek with us.

On this trek, tea houses provide foods menu for visitors. If you booked a full board service with us, you will get 3 meals every day that includes Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner with tea or coffee at breakfast. Trekkers can find continental, Chinese and Indian as well as Nepalese dishes that are prepared at the tea houses along the trail.

You will be served porridge, muesli, boiled/fried egg, omelets, toast, pancakes, and soups along with tea or coffee for breakfast.
For Lunch and dinner, you can order pizza, fried rice, plain rice, fry potatoes, chowmein/spaghetti, pasta/macaroni, or momo. Instead of all these international dishes, you can order local Daal Bhaat for your lunch and even dinner. Daal Bhaat is the common food menu of every Nepalese for lunch and dinner.

Regarding the accommodations, twin-sharing common local lodge accommodations will be provided throughout this trek. In most of the places, you will get sharing toilets with other trekkers. Only at Syaburbesi, you will have an attached bathroom with a hot shower running from the tap.

All our guides are fully trained and certified by the Nepal government. Each of our guides has led this trek more than 10 times with positive feedback from our previous clients.

Our guide speaks English well enough and takes care of you every step while on the trek. On this trek, your guide will take all of your responsibility such as accommodations, meals, transport permits, etc. And porters are the heroes of the mountain region trek that is behind the scenes. They transfer your belongings from one place to another destination safely throughout the trip for your comfort and pleasant hike. Thus, we would like to request all our guests to give respect to those heroes who make our trip successful.

Nepal is a mountainous country, and most of its regions are remote. There is no access to roads, communications, or hospitals due to the isolated topography. Accordingly, the Langtang valley trek is also one of the high mountain region treks that go through remote Himalayan jungles, rivers, and glaciers.

Therefore, if you book this trek through a local trekking company, a local guide who is familiar with the path will accompany you and lead you securely to your goal. There are a lot of side paths on the trail that might take you the wrong way. And if you miss the proper path there is no prospect of electronic communication.

Even more, in case of any health issues or natural disasters, your guide will certainly take action and transfer you to a safe place. Moreover, if you got an accident or AMS problem, your guide will contact your agency and arrange for your immediate helicopter rescue to the Kathmandu hospital.

You can leave your unnecessary items (while on the trek) at the Kathmandu hotel without extra costs. All our hotel representatives in Kathmandu provide storage facilities to our international clients. If you have any important documents or belongings please inform us prior to the trek so that we can store them securely.

Don’t worry; you are with the right hand. We will do everything to save your life if there will be any difficulties with you in the mountain.

Our native guides are well-trained and authorized by Nepal’s government. They are even trained in first aid medicine and they are eligible for medication in case of an emergency. If you got altitude sickness or any other health issues, you will be certainly taken to the nearby hospital if available. If there aren’t any health posts, you will be transferred to the low elevation as soon as possible. Even more, if your health condition is getting worse your guide will contact our office in Kathmandu and ask for an emergency helicopter rescue. Then after, you will be transferred to the well-equipped hospital in Kathmandu for your further treatment. All these rescue and treatment expenses should be covered by your insurance policy.

In the case of a natural disaster, you will be taken to a safe place with the help of our guide and porters. If the trails are blocked due to natural calamities your guide will try to find the safest and alternative routes. However, if there wouldn’t any option to go further up or return back to Kathmandu, you will be rescued by helicopter and taken to Kathmandu. And your helicopter evacuation expenses should be covered by your insurance policy.

Best trip in Lantang, Nepal

I was member of the group and traveled in Nepal to do Langtang and Gosaikund trek. Treks were very well organized by Glorius Himalaya Trekking and lasted 12 days. During that time our guides Buddhi and Roshan were organizing our stay, travel, walking, food etc. They responded to our needs and wishes as much as possible, and had excellent communication skills. Buddhi was able to motivate us even when sometimes things looked impossible. Since, we were group of 19 people it was demanding to satisfy us all but they made it. Roshan was quick and efficient in making decisions but also flexible. The weather was nice with great views, only nights were cold. We reached Kathmandu after trekking without having any difficulties. Our goals were reached and new experiences recorded not only with camera but in our hearts.

Langtang and Gosaikunda Trekking
By Marijana Jarža, Croatia
December 2, 2018

I had been dreaming about visiting the Himalayas range many times in the previous decades of my life.However,this trip came to me unexpectedly,at the time when I had,already, lost any hope of the dreams coming true. So,except of standard mountaineering that I have been used to for a long time,I did not have any notion of what to expect from the whole journey in reality. But,the Glorious Himalayas Trekking has more than lived up to the expectations of the whole group of 19 members I was in; thanks to the wonderful organisation,the exeptional interpersonal skills and care of our guides Buddhi and Roshan as well as the skillful logistic and cooperation between all the porters.Due to their great patience and kindness, everybody reached their point. Langtang and Gosaikund Trekking were,also, my first opportunity to visit Nepal and get to know with its cultural identity. I am sure that I will come back.I sincerely recommend the agency.
