Trekking & Hiking
Langtang Valley trek is one of the standout treks which is considered as one of the most prevalent and trekking goals testing trails. It is located in the northwest of Kathmandu valley in the Langtang region. The trek will offer you snow secured high passes, great perspectives of the mountains, old religious communities, Helambu and Langtang valley and all the natural sceneries on the way. This trek will pass through the busy trails of Langtang which is situated at 5130 meters.
Initially you might meet many people on the Langtang trail but later you will be amid pristine nature without any human interference. On the trek there will be sceneries of many mountains of the Langtang region. Along with that you can find some lakes in the area as well. The trail is close to another popular trekking destination; Gosaikunda Lakes so finding lakes on your trek will not be a surprise. This trek will also be connected to another popular trekking destination of KyangjinGompa.
One of the special thing about this trek is that there are so many places alongside this trek where there is not any influence of the modern world. Dense and colorful Rhododendron forests, snow-capped mountains, exalted waterfalls and unique civilizations are what this trek has to offer to you. Exploring TreskoRi, the Buddhist locals and the shrines and monasteries will be a great experience as well.
Your journey begins with your arrival in the bustling capital city of Nepal,
Kathmandu. A representative from our team will arrive for your pickup at TIA
who will assist you together with your luggage and transportation to your hotel. There are no planned activities for the day, so you'll check your hotel and luxuriate in the afternoon and evening at your leisure. You may simply want to rest after your long flight, but the lively tourist markets and restaurants of the Thamel are an enticing draw for many visitors.
Before heading to the Himalayas you must be familiar with quite a few things. Guidance and research for the trek are mandatory for everyone. You will be dealing with a strange experience but finally, with some groundwork, you can deal with it. You should be cautious with your bag pack. Carrying needless equipment will make your journey difficult. We will grasp up on some final shopping if there is free time. You will get the opportunity to explore BoudhanathStupa, Patan Durbar Square, Pashupatinath Temple, and SwayambhunathStupa. They have been scheduled in the UNESCO world heritage sites. These sites display the full range of historic and artistic achievements. Kathmandu Valley is world-famous for such beauty. Overnight stay will be at this city.
After the breakfast early in the morning we will start our trek on the drive along the north-western hills of Kathmandu. There will be views of the mountainous life and Himalayas on the way with terraced fields and rustic villages which will make you feel like you are back in time. Later, we will have lunch at the Trishuli Bazaar before continuing further to Dhunche. From Dhunche we will descend downwards to reach Syabrubesi and call it a day at SyabruBesi.
This is the day when our first day of the actual trekking starts. It will be an 8 hour trek to the Lama Hotel today. We will walk following the LangtangKhola River as the sun will rise higher in the horizon. Passing through the dense forests and suspension bridge to cross rivers and go from one mountain to another we will find tea houses on the way. We will be ascending upwards in the trek for a few hours which will take us to Lama hotel in the evening.
Early in the morning after our breakfast our trek starts to go towards Mundu via Langtang village. There are dense forests everywhere and through there we will make a steady climb up through the valley. Leaving the tree line behind us, the marvelous views of the LangtangLirung will be waiting to welcome us. We will pass the Langtang village where we can still see some of the ruins of the earthquake-triggered avalanche. Many people died during that incident but now people have recovered as some tea houses are opened in the Mundu village. That is where we will be spending the night. Maybe we will even get to listen some stories from the people there in the night time.
Leaving the people of Mundu early in the morning we will have a short trek today. We will be heading to KyangjinGompa which is a principal monastery of the region. There are water mills, prayer wheels, sacred mounds of rocks with inscriptions carved on them, and chortens. You will also get to see the largest mani wall in Nepal that is from stone with prayers written on them. After the 3 hour trek we will be spending our time aroungKyangjinGompa exploring the Buddhist shrines and the surrounding areas with the breathtaking views of the mountains.
On moving from KyangjinGompa to TserkoRi we will moving from around 3000 meters to 5000 meters so the climatical changes might be drastic so stay prepared for it. As we get out from KyangjinGompa we will pass through Yak pastures and start for visiting TserkoRi. We will return to KanjinGompa in the afternoon when it will all be surrounded by Himalayas around. We can walk around KanjinGompa and enjoy the views, icefalls, birds, yaks and glaciers.
After reaching at KyangjinGompa now our journey is back through the same trail. KyangjinGompa; TserkoRi was the highest point to reach in our trek and now we descend downwards towards Lama Hotel. Although it took us about 12 hours to get from Lama Hotel to KyangjinGompa for two days, on returning the trek is comparatively easier because we will be descending downwards. It will take us about 7-8 hours to pass through the luscious forests, streams, lakes and rivers. As we are descending downwards the LangtangLirung will start hiding. Passing through the Langtang village we will reach at Lama hotel which will be our stopping point for today’s long trek.
Today will be a short trek compared to the previous days tiring one so we will continue to retrace our steps to the village of Syabrubesi. This is an easy route which has peaceful forested hills. This trek is easier but you can choose to take the challenging route through Rimche via Sherpa Gaon to Syabrubesi. It will take comparatively longer to reach Syabrubesi but the extra effort will be worth it, if you are ready to take the challenging route. Since this is our last day trekking, choosing the challenging one might be more rewarding.
We will have our breakfast early at Syabrubesi to begin our 7 hour trip to Kathmandu. There will be snow-capped mountains, beautifully terraced hillsides and rustic villages on the way to say you goodbye. Few hours later you will depart from the hills to the bustling city.you will be taken to take rest from the tiring journey that you had. If you arrive early you can choose to go out in the night to observe the nightlife of the ancient city Kathmandu. Going to Thamel or the areas around Patan might help you enjoy the last day and rejuvenate.
The last morning on your trip to Nepal where you’ll be enjoying a pleasant breakfast while reflecting on all of the memories you have collected on your Langtang Valley Trek over the past 10 days. Approximately three hours before your scheduled flight, you will be taken to Tribhuvan International Airport for your departure. We hope you’ll return to Nepal in the near future to see everything else that it has to offer!
Today’s breakfast is included.

1. Domestic Flight
Kathmandu to Pokhara and return flight are often affected by weather conditions and congestion which may cause delays, sometimes even for several days. We request you to ensure that you have planned for spare days to account for moderate delays, but can't guarantee against longer delays which can even affect your international flight.
2. A typical Trekking hours per day
A typical day revolves around the Nepal sunrise and sunset, instead of any Western time schedule. You’ll be walking 5-6 hrs each day on an average.
3. Health Issues
We recommend you to consult the doctor to discuss the health issues associated with your trek. We also suggest you to bring your own personal first aid kit to supplement the comprehensive. Although, the first aid kit is carried by the Trek Leader.
4. Altitude Sickness
Many treks in Nepal can take you quite rapidly to high altitudes, so you must give your body the time to acclimatize. If you ascend faster than your body can adapt then you will likely start to develop symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Headache is the most common symptom, while nausea, vomiting, fatigue, loss of appetite, dizziness and sleep disturbances are some others.
The best way to adapt to higher altitude is to ascend slowly and gradually. The common method is that you should take 2-3 days to reach 3000m. If traveling to above this height remember to have extra acclimatization days.
5. Safety and security
You can have Travel Insurance while trekking which is the safest measure. However, there are some measures following which you can implement to ensure safety:
We recommend you to have an appropriate insurance policy which covers travel in such isolated and mountainous areas, and also includes helicopter rescue from a trusted agency. We recommend you to do a good research and find a reputable insurance agent or insurance specialist.
7. Recommended Equipment
While coming to trek, the weather and the time is one of the most important factors. Although you can trek in any time of the year to trek to this place, it is best to come during spring and the autumn to get the best view of the crystal clear sky from dusk till dawn. During the winters and monsoon, the trek will be a bit challenging but some people are excited by such challenges. If you are someone who likes challenges then coming during winters or monsoon is good but if you want a more comfortable and pleasant experience then better come during spring and autumn.
We will run our booked trips under normal situations. There is an opportunity to go for the trip even if other hikers cancel at the end moment. We will not cancel the entire trip even if there is a fewer number of people. Please note that we cannot carry on the trip if there is a political riot, natural disasters, pandemics, epidemic or catastrophes, etc.
You will be provided continental food which you can choose from the menu. Every vegetable served in the tea houses is nearby shaped. Such type of foods is organic and good for your health. If you love non-veg, you need to make sure whether the meat is fresh or not.
Usually, your guide advises you to go to the toilet in the tea houses before leaving to prevent the need to go during the trail. However, you may come across a few houses along the trail that will let you use their toilet. But in case of an emergency you will have to go in the wild if there are no houses nearby.
You can find various ways to access the web. If you have purchased a SIM card, you will be able to use data to access the internet. However, the network connection for both communication and internet access might not be consistently good. As you progress higher, the connection may get weak. You will be able to get Wi-Fi service from the tea houses, but please expect to be charged for this.
Trekking needs few days of walking that is continuous. You may find it difficult and boring at some times. Sometimes, you also need to fight with the high altitude. Trekking is not exhausting if you are reasonably fit. We design our trek to make your journey comfortable.
