HIGHLIGHTS
  • Get up close to the Himalayas
  • Take in panoramic views of Langtang Lirung, Kerung and Ganesh Himal
  • Experience the Tibetaninfluenced Tamang culture of the region
The Langtang valley, also known as "valley of glaciers" offers an abundance of wildlife, rich cultural and historical importance. Couple this with picturesque scenery such as pine forests, swift mountain streams, rugged rocks, and mountains rising; it is bound to be a unique experience. During this trek, you will understand the history of the Tibetan ancestry and their way of living, agriculture, and trade. After the massive earthquake in 2015, most of the Langtang valley was destroyed and now they are making a comeback as you can see the warm and gentle smile while welcoming you. You can enjoy not only the colorful dresses of the people but also the blooming rhododendron forests, birds, and butterflies. The trek starts with a drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. Exploring Tamang Heritage, we reach Langtang village and explore Kyanjin RI.

Langtang Valley Trek is a short and moderate trek that does not require any technical skills or previous trekking experience. You can complete the entire trek in 8 to 10 days, walking 5 to 7 hours per day. The most challenging section of Langtang Trek is the hike from Kyanjin Gompa to Tserko RI. The trail to Tserko RI is mostly steep uphill on the rocky Himalayan terrain. However, on most days, the path is easy and comfortable with a pleasant walk. The highest elevation point in Langtang Valley Trek is 5,000m above sea level. Therefore, Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is one of the significant threats while trekking in Langtang. You are required to take all the necessary precautions while traveling in such high elevation. Insist on drinking plenty of water, and be aware of the symptoms of AMS. The weather in the Himalayas is always unpredictable, especially in the upper reaches. Therefore, it is essential to pack all the necessary equipment while trekking in Langtang Valley. If you’re planning to trek during monsoon season, stay cautious on the trail. There is plenty of landslide-prone areas en-route to Langtang Valley.

While this trek may be relatively easy for experienced trekkers, it does demand a certain level of physical fitness and attitude. One proper way to keep you fit for the trek is to engage in cardio-oriented exercises.

Please note that meals are not included in the tour price. We suggest you budget USD 300 to USD 350 per person for meals during the trek.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

     

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • 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.
