Langtang Valley Trek

7 Days Langtang Valley Trek is one of the most sought after treks traversing to the base of Langtang mountain series. The Langtang Himalayan range extends through 3 neighboring districts of Kathmandu: Dhading, Rasuwa and Sindhupalchok. This series of mountain range includes some of the prettiest peaks such as: Langtang Lirung(7,227 m), Dorje Lakpa(6966 m), Langshisa Ri(6427 m), Gangchenpo(6387 m), Naya Kanga(5846 m), Paldor Peak(5896 m) and Yala Peak(5500m). Between these gigantic mountain peak lies the quaint Langtang valley sitting next to the raging Langtang river. The title “Langtang” translates to “Lang” which refers to Yak and “Tang” which means to follow in Tibetan dialect. Locals believe that a tibetan individual discovered the flat valley of Langtang while following the footsteps of his lost Yak, hence the name.

Langtang valley sits on the bank of Langtang river which originates from the Langtang range of mountains. This valley sits in the north eastern area of Rasuwa district in Gosaikunda rural municipality in the middle of Langtang National Park. It has been popularly famous for its quaint and tranquil ambiance amidst the Himalayan peaks. The dense village of the valley, Langtang village, was completely wiped away by the earthquake that terrified Nepal in 2015. You will still find the remains and debris of the village on your trek to Langtang valley. Nepal Langtang Trek is one of a kind trek which will take you on this enthralling adventure to this disaster struck region.

This trek is one of the short treks in Nepal spanning not more than 7 days. Among other small treks, this one is popular among trekkers for its offerings. Langtang National Park is rich with its diverse flora and fauna spread all over the area. This national park is particularly famous for the rare Red Panda and Snow Leopard that is occasionally seen in the area. Aside from the natural enriches, the locals of the area, Tamang people follow a distinct cult in their practice. Additionally, the lofty peaks will accompany you all throughout your trekking journey.  If you wish to elongate your adventure furthermore, Langtang Gosaikunda trek can be an alternative to this trekking.

The final stopover of your trek is at Kyanjin Gompa village. This village resting peacefully amidst the towering Himalayan peak provides for a restful day during your trek to Langtang valley. The popular Ganja La Pass connects Kyanjin village to Helambu on the other side of the mountains. From Lama Hotel to Kyanjin Gompa is the Langtang valley. You will be amazed by the towering rocky peaks with white water river running from between. Apart from the natural amusement, you will be served local delicacies by Tamang group of people every night. In between lies small hamlets which serve as your teahouse stopover for the night. Lama Hotel, Riverside, Ghodatabela, Thangsyap, Langtang, Mundu and Sindum are villages sparsely spread along the Langtang Trekking trail.

The Langtang Trek altitude ranges from 1500 meters at Syabrubesi, which is the starting point of your trek. It goes up to 3880 meters at Kyanjin Gompa. The standard itinerary includes a total of 7 days of trekking to Langtang valley including Kathmandu -Syabrubesi-Kathmandu transfer. You can add one more day to stay at Kyanjin Gompa and explore nearby surroundings.

You have two options to choose from on your additional day at Kyanjin Gompa. Based on your Langtang trekking itinerary , you can choose to hike to Tsergo Ri which is a famous peak that scales 4985 meters during a rest day at Kyanjin. Alternatively, you can hike to Kyanjin ri which is relatively easier and measures 4700 meters. Kyanjin Ri is a nearby peak with roundtrip hike taking about 4 hours. Tsergo Ri lies much farther from Kyanjin Gompa and requires an additional day. On the standard itinerary, you can hike to Kyanjin Ri and return then descend towards Lama Hotel for your return journey. However, if you choose to hike Tsergo Ri you will have to add one additional day to your itinerary.

Both of these peaks stand in the close proximity of Kyanjin village. Trekkers also opt to go towards Langshisha valley which is further deep into the Himalayan peaks. Inquire with Himalaya trip to design perfect trekking to Langtang valley.

Peter and Ramesh on Kyanjin Ri

UK, November 16, 2023

Langtang Valley trek – November 2023

This was my third trek with Himalaya Trip and as always it was a great experience. I was efficiently met at the airport by my guide, Ramesh, and then fully briefed at the hotel by Harka Gurung before having an acclimatisation day prior to setting off. A day on the road there and back to the start point is not too onerous as it is interesting to see varying local sights and agricultural methods.

The trek itself in November was an excellent time of year as the weather, whilst quite cold at night, was clear and fine offering fantastic views and a walking programme which was well within my capabilities as a not so young trekker. My guide, Ramesh, was superb and looked after me very attentively and always found excellent accommodation. And my porter, Sandeep, carried my kit uncomplainingly and always with a smile on his face. The views from Kyanjin Ri are particularly spectacular and Ramesh ensured I made it to the top even though I was a bit puffy in the thinner air.

I fully recommend this trek and Himalaya Trip as the Company charge fair prices for a a very efficient and friendly service. It was another unforgettable experience and my thanks to all the team for giving me a great time, I will come again! "

Essential Infos

Langtang Trekking Lodging

Accommodations during your Langtang Valley Trek are basic and limited to staying in teahouses. Teahouses are a popular choice for accommodation while trekking in Nepal, as they combine the concept of homestays with modern hotel systems. The local inhabitants along the trekking trail have converted their homes into wooden structures with multiple rooms, serving as teahouses. Each teahouse also includes a kitchen, dining area, and a small confectionery shop. In the evenings, you can warm yourself by the logfire in the dining area.

Most villages of Langtang region were completely destroyed in the 2015 earthquake. Reviving from the aftermath of the disaster, various new teahouses have been built on the trail. During your stay at a teahouse, you will be provided with a bed, mattress, pillows, and quilt. However, if you find that the quilt provided is not sufficient for keeping warm at night, you can rent a sleeping bag in Kathmandu before starting your trek.

Langtang Trek Route is pretty straightforward with not many divergent trails in between. The route is clearly marked and is filled with various teahouses run by Tamang natives. We begin our journey from the capital city Kathmandu. On our first day, we will drive northbound following the mighty Trishuli river. Our drive will last for at least 7-8 hours before reaching Syabrubesi, a small riverside town located at the confluence of Langtang and Bhotekoshi river.

We then followed alongside the Langtang river to reach Lama Hotel. Lama hotel stands as a small hamlet located in a deep gorge in between two rocky cliffs. From here the flat river basin of Langtang river begins. Our trail then steadily follows through small hamlets like : Ghodatabela, Thangshyap before reaching Langtang village at 3500 meters. Right before you enter the village, we pass through the colossal debris of a landslide triggered by 2015 earthquake in the area. From Langtang, we will have mesmerizing views of the Langtang mountains. The pathway becomes flattened from this village and we reach Kyanjin Gompa, our final stopover.
