  • A journey of diverse scenic elements ranging from tumbling river waters coursing through thick forests to alpine pastures and yak herds

If time is short, fitness a concern, and you feel the need perhaps to test the waters before committing to a more arduous trek through the Himalayas, Nepal Trekking Experts may have the ideal solution for you in the shape of the classic Langtang Valley Trek. Not only does the trek offer a journey of reasonably moderate effort through a scenically dramatic alpine region well worth visiting in its own right, but it also has the added benefit of being very accessible from Kathmandu, minimizing travel and days wasted for those who want to focus their limited time on trekking, rather than onerous bus or jeep rides.

The Langtang Valley Trek was long a favored area for hiking and ranked only behind Everest and Annapurna in terms of popularity. The tragic 2015 earthquake had a devastating economic effect on the community, with many forced to leave, yet in the intervening years many have come back, the tea houses have been rebuilt anew, and life has slowly returned to something resembling the past, though tourism to the area has yet to approach earlier figures. Visitors choosing to make the journey will thus not only be able to avail themselves of one of Nepal’s most beautiful treks in the same manner as before but can help support the wonderful welcome and hospitable Tamang people of Langtang Valley as they attempt to rebuild their livelihoods in the wake of the earthquake.

The trailhead starts at Syabrubesi and courses through glorious forests perched by the banks of the Langtang Khola. From there the trail wanders up between the broad shoulders of the looming peaks to the narrow vale of the rebuilt village of Langtang, then on and up to the valley’s alpine pastures, yak herds, and the entrancing monastery of Kyanjin Gompa and its unique Yak cheese facility. Optional climbs to Kyanjin Ri (4773m) or Cherko Ri (4984m) offer stunning panoramic views of the valley and surrounding mountains. The return journey on the opposite side of the river gives the trip an entirely different perspective, and the additional option exists to add the challenging route to the sacred lake of Gosaikunda and the high pass of Gosaikunda La (4610m).

So if you’re on a short visit and looking for a mild pace through superb scenery we would suggest you consider the Langtang Valley Trek. Not only is it an exceptionally rewarding experience, but you’ll be helping to support gentle and famously hospitable people to recover from one of the most devastating events to hit Nepal in decades.

Moreover, you may also check our utmost satisfied packages like Manaslu Circuit Trek, Khopra Ridge Trek, Pikey Peak Trek, and many more impressive routes.

The trek gets off to a serene start, crossing a rustic wooden bridge traversing the icy waters of the Bhote Kosi, a stream with lofty origins by the border with Tibet. The path leads away through dense woodland perched by the river, with abundant wildlife on the show as we gradually hike to Lama Hotel for our first night on the trail.

  • Max. Altitude:3430m/11253ft..
  • Meals:Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  • Accommodation:Tea House

The valley's dominant peak, the majestic Langtang Lirung, keeps us company as we steadily hike through the steep-sided valley, with heavily forested sections of rhododendron, pines, and oaks giving way to the telling signs of the region's strong connection to Tibet via the numerous Mani walls, water-driven prayer wheels, and prayer flags marking our passage. Our time at Langtang Village is a somber one, as the signs are still all too evident of the tragic landslide from the devastating 2015 earthquake that completely destroyed the original village and took many lives. The new community has been more prudently placed, but a memorial at the site of the landslide reminds us of the painful event as we move on towards Mundu, our rest stop for the night.

  • Max. Altitude:3870m/12697ft.
  • Meals:Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  • Accommodation:Tea House

A short hike awaits us today as we work our way steadily higher through a changing landscape that leaves behind the verdant woodlands and opens out into a high-altitude region of yak pasturelands and rushing streams, with the towering mountains pressing in from both sides of the valley. Our early arrival at Kyanjin provides ample opportunity to explore the monastery and to sample the intriguing yak products of the local cheese factory there that was established with the help of the Swiss.

  • Max. Altitude:4984m/16352ft.
  • Meals:Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  • Accommodation:Tea House

At an altitude of over  5000 meters, Tserko Ri provides the perfect outlook for the valley and presents a decent challenge to climb, the effort is well worth the attempt as the view from the peak towards Langtang Lirung and other peaks in the area is breathtaking in its scope and beauty. We return in plenty of time to relax from the climb - and perhaps sample more of the cheese!

  • Max. Altitude:2470m/8104ft.
  • Meals:Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  • Accommodation:Tea House

Today we return to Lama Hotel, though the hike back is an easy downhill walk that offers us a different perspective from the way in.

  • Max. Altitude:1503m/4931ft.
  • Meals:Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  • Accommodation:Tea House

One of the benefits of trekking the Langtang Valley is that it offers an alternative route back to Syabrubesi via Sherpagaun that is less used and quite peaceful, with serene views, a more secluded culture, and a pleasant mix of both flora and fauna.

  • Max. Altitude:1400m/4593ft.
  • Meals:Breakfast and Lunch

Return drive to Kathmandu by bus or jeep.

    Farewell and drop-off at the airport, or the opportunity to join another of our programs.

      Great company. Highly recommend. Langtang valley trek.

      Trekking company was very organised and a fair price for the langtang valley trek. Would highly recommend. They made me feel at ease by meeting up with them the day before the hike to meet the guide, the owner and they went thoroughly through the itenary and stuff to bring on the trek.

      The guide, Rajan, was excellent throughout and spoke really good English. He explained the history of langtang valley and knew the routes well. I was really great to go an alternative way back to the usual route so we didn't go back on the same path for too long ar langtang valley. He was patient and the food to be included along with a coffee each morning and fruit in the evening was a really nice freebie to be added in. I was the only one from the groups to be offered this and the only one to have fruit each evening which was nice. The guide also carried a first aid kit with him, just incase something went wrong which is always re-assuring.

      Overall the experience was amazing, the viewpoint at langtang valley was breathtaking and would highly recommend this company.

      Fantastic experience in Langtang

      In November 2022 me and my girlfriend did the Langtang valley track. Including Kyanjing Ri Lower Peak, Kyanjing Ri Upper Peak and Tsergo Ri. It was an amazing experience. First we visited the office and mister Rajesh brainstormed with us about the trip we wanted to do. He gave good advice and made a plan that suited our ambitions, experience and abilities. It was so nice that he arranged hiking poles, sleeping bags and down jackets we could lent for free. Rajesh connected us with a great guide named Soti. Soti has an uplifting spirit and is an endless source of positivity. When down or in self doubt during a challenging hike, Soti can boost your energy and make you believe in yourself. Soti is a caring person who looks after you. He makes your trip safe, fun and care free. Along with us came a porter named Dadzu. He carried half of our luggage. That was very pleasant on the sometimes challenging trail. Dadzu was not only a porter. He was the back up plan and the friend that catches you when you fall.
