Highlight of Langtang Valley Trek
Overview of Langtang Valley Trek
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 Region & Annapurna Region 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.

Arrival in Kathmandu and transfer to the hotel (1,400m)
You will be warmly greeted by a representative of our office when you arrive at Tribhuwan International Airport. After all airport formalities are done with, you will be transferred to your hotel. Following the completion of the check-in process and the consumption of some refreshments, our senior guide will come to meet you in order to provide a concise introduction to the Langtang Valley Trek. After that, you can have some dinner, walk around some more to become acquainted with the surrounding areas, and then retire for the night.
Kathmandu sightseeing tour and trip preparation
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.
Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1,550m) - 7 hrs drive
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 to Lama Hotel (2,380m) - 6/7 hrs trek
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.
Trek to Langtang Village (3,430m) - 6/7 hrs trek
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 Kyanjing Gompa (3,870m) - 2/3 hrs Trek
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.
Kyanjin Gompa exploration day - Hike to Teserko Ri (5,000m)
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 back to Lama Hotel (2,380m) - 7 hrs trek
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 (1,550m) - 6 hrs trek
After a scrumptious hot breakfast, we say goodbye to the mountains and begin our descent, which takes us at a leisurely pace back to Syabru Bensi, where our journey began a week earlier. Spend the night at our guesthouse.
Drive back to Kathmandu (1,400m) - 7 hrs drive :
After enjoying a hearty breakfast at our own leisurely pace, we break camp and prepare to make the journey to Kathmandu, where the luxuries of our hotel, including a plush, comfortable bed, are waiting for us. They say that we will spend the night in the valley of the gods, but we will be staying at our hotel in Kathmandu and enjoying a nice, comfortable bed instead.
Farewell from Nepal
Following breakfast on our final day in Kathmandu, our vehicle and escorts will be waiting to drive you to the international airport three hours before your flight back home is scheduled to depart.

We four friends from Singapore traveled to the Himalayan country, Nepal from 23rd March to 2nd April and did the Langtang Valley trek with the support of the Glorious Himalaya Company.
Glad to choose this company for our great adventure in Langtang Valley. We were escorted by our guide Ram and porters Roshan and Shiva. We trekked through Syabrubesi, Lama Hotel, Langtang village and Kyanjin Gompa. It was the most wonderful adventure at the foothills of Langtang Himalaya.
The view from Kyanjin Ri was one of the best moments of this journey. We truly admired the journey of Langtang Valley with the professional team.
Thank you once again for the support and will definitely recommend this agency to all our relatives, friends and colleagues.
