This trekking route is one of the most popular trekking destinations in the Langtang area. The trail is filled with rhododendrons, the national flower of Nepal, and also laden with religious Chorten, Stupas, and monasteries. Come experience the culture of this amazing, spiritual place!

Langtang National park offers short and long treks ranging from 4 days to 15 days. The prime villages in this park are Langtang valley, Kyanjin Gompa, Tarke Gyang and Thulo Syabru, and the main attraction of this park is Gosainkunda lake, Kyanjin Gompa located at altitude of 3850 m, from where we can see a panoramic view of Mount Langtang Lirung, Ubra, Yala, Gyang Chembo, Naya Kanga and Dorje Lhakpa.

Most of the people in this region follow Buddhism and do not sacrifice animals, as in other parts of Nepal. The national park is home to some rare animals like the red panda and several species of birds and butterflies. The flora and fauna here are just an added touch to the beautiful landscapes of Langtang.

“Langtang is among the most beautiful valleys I have ever visited. I visited in July, which is not the ideal season to visit. However, I still got to see some spectacular views early in the morning and on certain days when it did not rain much. Not far from Kathmandu, the trek still offers you a world of its own, far rom the hustle and bustle of the city.

The trek itself is quite doable, ever for a first time trekker like me with average fitness level.

I visited in July, when the raod consitions aren't the best. So, I had a bumpy ride from Kathmandu to Syabrubensi. This is expected. For those, who are visiting in the monsoon, I'd suggest to be extra careful with potential landslides and unpredictable weather where you might not see the best views.”

“The trek put together for my visit to Upper Mustang was the best experience I had in Nepal. While traveling alone, I was able to customize trip exactly to my liking. The guide had so much knowledge of the culture and has become a good friend I'll keep in touch with in future years. All my travel to Bardia National Park was coordinated through Mount 8850 as well which was a great experience. When I return to Nepal in future I'll definitely coordinate all travel through them again.”

“The portion of this trek that my associates and I undertook was exceptionally rewarding and thoroughly challenging. We were blessed with an array of conditions that ranged from stellar, clear mornings, to midnight snow thunderstorms. Our guides and porters were incredible, patient and extremely attentive to our needs and physical conditioning as made miles and elevation. Pasang and Pemba, or guides, gave us the fullest and most rewarding first experience that we could have asked for in Nepal. I can't wait to come back!”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
