Trip Details

Langtang Valley Trek

Langtang Valley, located to the north of Kathmandu and bordering Tibet, offers a mesmerizing trekking experience with its mountainous terrain, diverse flora and fauna, yak pastures, and local cheese factories. The region is home to a variety of Himalayan wildlife, including pheasants, deer, bears, monkeys, and the elusive red panda.

Compared to the more popular treks like Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp, the Langtang Valley trek provides a more peaceful and less crowded journey, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a serene and off-the-beaten-track adventure. Despite its proximity to Kathmandu, the region remains relatively unknown to many trekkers.

  • Langtang valley

While the Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp treks are widely recognized names, the Langtang Valley trek remains less familiar to people. However, it offers a rewarding experience with its unique combination of history, culture, and scenic beauty that Nepal is renowned for. The trek route takes you through enchanting rhododendron and bamboo forests, where thundering waterfalls create a breathtaking backdrop against the backdrop of spectacular snow-capped mountains. The Langtang Himalayas dominate the landscape, providing trekkers with stunning views and a sense of awe.

The relatively short duration of the Langtang Valley trek, combined with its manageable level of difficulty, makes it accessible to a wide range of trekkers, including those with limited time or less trekking experience. For those who wish to explore something distinct from the more touristy regions in Nepal and immerse themselves in the tranquility of the Himalayas, the Langtang Valley trek presents an ideal opportunity. Its hidden gems, serene ambiance, and unique cultural encounters await those adventurous enough to venture into this less-traveled route.

Detailed Itinerary


The day begins with an early morning bus journey from Kathmandu to Syaphru Besi. The 7-8 hour long drive will take you through the scenic countryside of Nepal, offering picturesque views of lush green hills, terraced fields, and charming rural villages. Along the route, you will also pass by the Trisuli River, adding to the beauty of the journey.

Syaphru Besi serves as the starting point of the Langtang Valley trek, and it is a charming village nestled at an altitude of approximately 1,400 meters (4,593 feet). Upon reaching Syaphru Besi, trekkers have the opportunity to rest for the night at one of the local teahouses and prepare themselves for the adventure that lies ahead.

Day 2: Trek from Syapru Besi to Lama Hotel (2,470 m.) 5-6 hours.

After breakfast, our journey begins by crossing a suspension bridge over the Bhote Khola (River), which originates from Tibet and is a significant tributary of the Trishuli River. Shortly thereafter, we will traverse another suspension bridge over the Langtang Khola River, which will be our guiding waterway throughout the trek to Langtang.

We will be trekking alongside the river; slowly, you will find yourself surrounded by a bamboo forest with langurs and red pandas. Our resting place for the night will be at one of the travelers lodges located at Lama Hotel.

Day 3: Trek from Lama Hotel to Langtang Village (3,430 m.) 5-6 hours.

As we embark on the trek, our path will lead us through the enchanting forest alongside the captivating Langtang Khola. After approximately 3 hours of trekking, we will arrive at Ghodatabela. Here, we will take a short break to rest and rejuvenate.

Once we resume our journey, the trail will lead us uphill, guiding us through the charming settlements of Thyangsyap and Langtang Gompa. As we progress, we will finally reach old Langtang Village, a place that faced significant devastation during the 2015 earthquake. However, the resilient spirit of the locals has driven them to rebuild their village, which is gradually coming back to life.

We will spend the night in Langtang Village, allowing ourselves time to acclimatize to the altitude and the surroundings.

Day 4: Trek from Langtang Village to Kyanjing Gompa (3,870 m.) 4-5 hours.

After a hearty breakfast, our journey continues, and we'll walk across the path adorned with the sacred Mani Stone Wall. These stones are purposefully placed along the river as offerings to the local spirits. Within a short 1-hour trek, we will reach Mundu, a charming small settlement that thrives in this picturesque landscape. Here, we will take a brief break to rest and soak in the tranquil surroundings.

As we progress further, we will be greeted by the peaceful sight of horses, yaks, and goats grazing contently in the area. The scenery will be adorned with awe-inspiring views of the Naya Kanga to the South, while the towering peaks of Mountain Langtang 2 and Langtang Lirung will dominate the Northern horizon, treating us to a visual feast.

Our ultimate destination for the day is Kyangjin Gompa, an exquisite location nestled amidst the grandeur of the high Himalayan peaks. Upon reaching Kyangjin Gompa, we will check into one of the lodges, where lunch awaits us. This serene setting provides the perfect backdrop for us to unwind and fully appreciate the natural beauty that surrounds us.

Day 5: Rest day or Kyanjing exploration day - hike to Kyanjing-Ri (4,600m.) 2-3 hours. or Tsergo-Ri (4,984 m.) 6- 7 hours.

It should be a day full of exploration, where you can visit the Kyanjing Gompa. You will have the opportunity to meet the locals and try out the authentic flavours of the region. You can find yourself with the usual dal bhat or you can try out the local yak cheese. There is a yak cheese factory where you can visit to see the cheese making process. You can either have a bite there or take some with you.

If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, you can opt to hike the Kynajing Ri. The hike to the summit takes approximately 4 to 5 hours for the round trip, rewarding us with breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding Himalayan peaks and the picturesque valleys. However, if you prefer a shorter trek, we can opt for the lower viewpoint, which takes about 3 hours round trip, still offering splendid views to cherish.

The ascent to Tsergo Ri takes approximately 5 hours, leading us to a vantage point where we can view Yala peak standing tall at 5,520 m, Langtang Ri soaring at 7,205 m, Langtang Lirung towering at 7,227 m, and Naya Khang reaching 5,844 m. The panoramic vistas from the summit are truly breathtaking, offering a sense of awe and wonder in the face of nature's splendor.

Day 6: Trek back to Lama Hotel 5-6 hours.

We will begin our descent back to Lama Hotel. The trail will take us along the same path we took during our initial ascent.

Day 7: Trek from Lama Hotel to Syphrubesi (1,400 m.) 5-6 hours.

On the final day of the trek, we will bid farewell to the stunning landscapes of the Langtang region and begin our journey back to Syabrubesi. As we retrace our steps, we will have the chance to relish the scenic beauty of the valley once more. Then overnight at one of the teahouse.

" I recently returned to visit Nepal for a month in March/April 23 after a gap of about 40 years and used Mountain Travel Nepal again through Ashok Awal and his team to make ALL the arrangements.

This included the Sherpa Village Trek in the Solukhumbu region in Sagamartha National Park, the Langtang Valley Trek in Langtang National Park and accommodation in Thamel, Shivapuri Heights and Bhaktapur while in the Kathmandu Valley.

The whole month was a wonderful experience. Advice and communication was professional and I always felt safe and looked after. This was commented on by others I met along the way and I think a tribute to the experience of Mountain Travel Nepal.

A big thank you to Sherpa Ngawang Namgel and Porter Pemba Nuru and the staff of the Mountain Lodges of Nepal in the Solukhumbu region and also to Sherpa Sonam Ngima and Porter Phure Lema in the Lantang Valley and to the staff in the Lantang Tea Houses for making me feel so welcome and for sharing their unique way of life. It was a privilege to have the Sherpas show me wild life and birds along the trails and for sharing their lives and experiences. Thank you."
