Overview

Although the Langtang Valley Trek Nepal is only a day’s drive from Kathmandu, most trekkers are unaware of its existence. While many people are familiar with Everest Base Camp Trek, Annapurna Circuit, and Annapurna Base Camp Trek, few are familiar with the moniker Langtang Valley Trek.

This valley walk, dominated by the Langtang Himalayas, is relatively short yet travels through rhododendron and bamboo woods alongside roaring waterfalls and spectacular snow-capped mountains. The trail ascends to 4,000 meters, and if you want to continue higher, you won’t miss witnessing the dawn from the Tserko Ri at 5,000 meters.

This varied walk takes you to Tamang and Sherpa Buddhist culture, and the historic monastery of Kyanjin Gompa, located near Tserko, perpetuates this legacy. This hike offers amazing views of Dorje Lakpa (6,990m), Langtang Ri (6,370m), and Langtang Lirung (7,245m). The trip takes you through Langtang National Park, a pristine landscape with magnificent flora and animals, yak farms, and local cheese producers! This region is home to Himalayan pheasants, deer, Himalayan bears, monkeys, and the elusive red panda.

The April 2015 earthquake completely demolished Langtang Village. However, the resilient villagers have been hard at work restoring some teahouses, and lodges have reopened. People can best assist by continuing to visit this area. It is an ideal walk for people looking to venture off the beaten path and see something different from the country’s more popular tourist destinations. Similarly, this is an excellent introduction for people visiting Nepal for the first time.

Langtang Valley Trek Nepal Detailed Itinerary 

Day 1: Welcome to the airport!

Welcome to Tribhuvan International Airport, followed by a transfer to your accommodation.

Day 2: Free day for final trekking preparation

Today is free for final trekking preparations and exploring the Kathmandu valley’s cultural richness.

Day 3: Drive Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1503m)

Travel by public bus from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. Settlement is located on the banks of Bhote Koshi and serves as the starting point for many treks in the Langtang region.

Day 4: Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel (2380m) | Langtang Valley Trek Nepal

The walk begins peacefully, crossing a rustic wooden bridge over the chilly waters of the Bhote Koshi, a torrent with lofty beginnings near the Tibetan border. As we progressively travel to Lama Hotel for our first night on the trail, the path leads away through lush woodland perched by the river, with abundant wildlife on display.

Day 5: Lama Hotel to Langtang village (3,430m)

The majestic Langtang Lirung keeps us company as we hike steadily up with heavily forested sections of rhododendron, pines, and oaks. The region’s strong connection to Buddhism via the numerous Mani walls, water-driven prayer wheels, and prayer flags marking our passage. Our visit to Langtang Community is solemn. The signs of the sad landslide caused by the devastating 2015 earthquake that destroyed the original village and took many lives remains visible. The new settlement has been positioned more sensibly, but a memorial at the site of the landslide reminds us of the tragic tragedy as we continue to Mundu, our rest break for the night.

Day 6: Langtang to Kyangjin Gompa (3,870m)

Today’s journey will be short as we steadily head higher and open into a high-altitude zone of yak pasturelands and flowing streams, with towering mountains crowding in from both sides. Our early arrival in Kyanjin gives us plenty of time to see the monastery and sample the unique yak products of the local cheese factory, which is built with the Swiss’s assistance.

Day 7: Day hike to Tserko Ri (4984m) | Langtang Valley Trek Nepal

Tserko Ri, at an elevation of almost 5000 meters, provides an excellent perspective of the valley and is a tremendous challenge to climb; nonetheless, the effort is well worth it because the view from the top towards Langtang Lirung and other peaks in the area is magnificent in its vastness and beauty. We return plenty of time to recover after the climb – and possibly eat some more cheese!

Day 8: Trek back to Lama Hotel (2,470m)

Today we return to the Lama Hotel, albeit the hike back is a gentle downhill that provides us with a different perspective than the trip.

Day 9: Trek to Syabrubesi (1503m) via Sherpa Gaun

One of the advantages of walking the Langtang Valley is that it provides a less travelled and more straightforward path back to Syabru Besi through Sherpa Gaun, with serene views, a more secluded culture, and a pleasing combination of flora and animals.

Day 10: Syabrubesi to Kathmandu.

Travel back to Kathmandu via public bus or jeep.

Langtang Valley Trek Nepal
Maura

The area near Langtang Valley is beautiful. Already the bus tour to the ascent site is a real adventure. Also the villages are exciting to explore and through the open and warm nature of Suranjan we got in contact with the villagers. The cultural exchange and being allowed to participate in their rituals is an experience that I associate with this wonderful trekking. I had the opportunity to get a small insight into the everyday life of the villagers of the different places. This in addition to the beautiful panorama and the explanations of Suranjan about the lived cultures, has made this trekking an incredibly beautiful experience for me that I would recommend to any person. Many thanks
