A trek to the Langtang valley has to be one of the most rewarding of the short treks available anywhere in Nepal. The east-west running valley is the site of some spectacular alpine scenery as well as being a great place to meet unique people. A minimum of one week is required but trekkers are well advised to add a few extra days for acclimatization and for side trips in the valley. Along our journey you will walk through the Langtang National Park. Although wildlife is never easy to spot in a forest setting, here you get the chance to see some interesting animals and birds. Among those found in the park are monkeys, musk deer, Pika and the national bird of Nepal, the colorful danphe.

We provide 3-star accommodation in the city and we arrange for a trip briefing with dinner in the evening.

A professional guide and vehicle are provided for a day of sightseeing in and around Kathmandu city. We visit some of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the city along with other interesting cultural monuments that dot the valley. These include Boudhanath Stupa (the largest Buddhist shrines in the world), Pashupatinath (the holiest Hindu temple in the world), Durbar Squares (Palaces and fortresses of medieval Kings), along with other popular cultural attractions. We get to observe the lifestyle of Nepalese people, holy sadhus and monks, fascinating history as well as awe-inspiring architecture.

 

Day 3 - Drive to Syabru Besi (1,462m / 4,797ft)

Early in the morning, we drive from Kathmandu to Syabru Besi which takes about eight to nine hours by public bus. Driving through scenic foothills and ridgeline vistas to Syabru Besi passing Dhunche, we’ll get a glimpse of Ganesh Himal after driving along the mighty Trishuli river. Terraced green hills and lush forests make the drive very pleasurable. Parts of the road though may be bumpy and under construction.

 

Day 4 - Trek from Syabru Besi to Lama Hotel (2,500m / 8,202ft)

The first part of the trail crosses through the Bhote Koshi river and follows the Langtang Khola. This trail gradually ascends up to Bamboo (1,960m) passing rugged paths. Afterwards, your trek climbs gently to Rimche (2,400m) through Bamboo which lies at the bank of Langtang Khola. You can have lunch at this place if you like and at the end your trail is the Lama Hotel. En route you could see red pandas, monkeys and bears if you are lucky.

 

Day 5 - Trek from Lama Hotel to Langtang village (3,307m / 10,850ft)

The trek route follows Gumanechok at Ghoda Tabela which literally means the Horse Stable. After this the trail climbs gradually to the beautiful valley with yaks about. Langtang is a typical village and one of the oldest along this trekking route. The views of the mountains are spectacular and become more imposing as well trek closer.

 

Day 6 - Trek from Langtang Village to Kyanjin Gompa (3,798m / 12,461ft)

It is shorter walk today, but adequate for acclimatizing. There are some interesting things to explore, especially the famous cheese factory – don’t forget to try some locally produced cheese as fresh as it could get. This beautiful valley is on the lap of the Langtang Lirung. This is the spot where we can explore the valley and climbs several small peaks (hillocks).

 

Day 7 - Kyanjin Gompa exploration day

Today is a day to rest as we explore the area. You can visit the monastery and the cheese factory, walk up the moraine to see the spectacular ice faces and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung or ascend Kyangjin Ri (4,350m) which is the highest point of this trek, directly behind the village, for a breath-taking panorama of the Langtang peaks.

 

Day 8 - Trek back to Lama Hotel (2,500m / 8,202ft)

Rejoin the trail to Lama Hotel.

 

Day 9 - Trek from Lama Hotel to Syabru Besi (1,462m / 4,797ft)

Leaving the mountains behind us our descent takes us to the Syabru Besi where our trek started a week earlier.

 

Day 10 - Drive back to Kathmandu (1,345m/4,413 ft)

After breakfast, we drive back to Kathmandu from Syabru Besi which will take some 9 hours by bus or an SUV depending on the group size.

This is a leisure and free day in Kathmandu for exploration. You are free to go souvenir shopping, spa and more exploration of the city, or extend your trip to include bungee jumping, rafting, mountain biking, Everest mountain flight and other adventurous activities.
