This Langtang Valley Trek gives us an overview of the Tibetan alike topographical structure with similar Tibetan Buddhism culture and traditions. This trip is a great option for all those travelers who have limited time in Nepal but who still wishes to get a great trekking tour in Nepal.
With easy road access connection from Kathmandu, enjoy amazing Himalayan sceneries with diversified nature and culture during your Langtang Valley Trek.
We initiate for our Langtang valley trek after we arrive at Syabrubesi which is also our starting point of the trek. We will then trek all the way towards Kyanjin Gompa passing the Lama Hotel and Langtang Village. You will be exploring the rich vegetation, flora and fauna at Langtang national park and enjoying the stunning views of Dorje Lakpa, Langtang Lirung, Pemthang Ri and Kangchenpo from Kyangin Gompa. During this trek we will also ascend a small peak called Chorkari Ri providing amazing views over Langtang Valley once we reach the summit (can be done by inexperienced trekkers as well).
The Langtang Trek is suitable for all travelers looking forward to have an awesome time across cities, forests and Himalayas.
Please refer to the itinerary section for more details.
You will see different views... the first day maybe is the hardest one, always going up and down in the middle of the forest... but once in the kanjing ri point (4800 meters more or less) you will see that it worths the effort.
Some tea houses are very basic but you will be provided with the necessary to assure your personal hygiene... even if they dont have hot shower you can always ask for a bucket of hot water and wash yourself every day. I suggest you to take with you an disinfectant spray for the tea houses bed clothes; some of them have bugs that can go inside your sleeping bag.
Maybe the most difficult thing is the toilet, if that is important to you... normally a latrine not so clean as you may expect, but remember that you are in an adventure so try to see it this way.
You will cross lots of porters in your way.. remember to give them priority in the way... they hard work deserves our respect and recognition... they are persons like we are.
And just one more suggestion: please be careful with the trash... I saw some empty cookies packets, empty bottles of water, cigarettes packets, sweets packets on the way (even sanitary pads)... so keep the trash with you until you find a bin... if we go there its because the nature is important to us so its our duty to protect it.
I wish you a good and safe trekking and really hope that you will be so happy as I was over there.”

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?
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.
