HIGHLIGHTS
  • Do the Langtang trek, probably Nepal's best trek if having 8 days available
  • Magnificent mountain views
  • Great scenic as well as cultural trek
  • Hike your own 5000 m peak, either Kyanjin Ri or Tseku Ri
Langtang valley is situated to the North of Kathmandu and is sandwiched between the Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. This great trekking adventure in the Langtang region combines spectacular views of the Himalayas with great cultural insights.

One of the highlights of the Langtang Circuit trek is the rhododendron and bamboo forests. Other highlights are animal wildlife, majestic waterfalls and soothing hot springs. You will also be getting magnificent views of the snowcapped white mountain giants including Mt. Langtang Lirung (7,200m), Mt. Ganesh Himal (7,600m), Mt. Langtang II (7,227m), Mt. Gang Chhenpo (6,388m), Mt. Naya Kanga ri (5,846m), and finally Mt. Dorje Lakpa (6,966m). Aside from great mountains we will also see the beautiful Gosaikunda lake.

The Langtang circuit trek route goes through traditional Tamang villages. We will reach Langtang Village and the friendly Sherpa village near Kyanjing Gompa (3,870m). At Gosainkunda lake we will watch the sun rise above the lake, setting its sun rays on the Himalayan mountains. We will also cross the Laurebinayak pass at 4,609m.

All in all this is a great trek and can be done by anybody who can walk 5-6 hours a day. If you are in doubt as to your level of fitness please add porters, as they will then carry your backpack. A porter can carry up to 30 kg.

We are looking forward to be showing you the beautiful Langtang trekking area. Please see the Itinerary for a day by day route.

“I did the 8 day Langtang valley trek with a friend in early december and we had a great experience altogether.”

“Recommended for novice trekkers but quite challenging for older people with 1000m elevation gain each day on rough trails. Poles are a "must have". Trail opens up after 2nd day which is great for viewing the scenery. Views in Kyanjin spectacular. Primitive lodgings, especially at Lama Hotel. Expect to share squattie toilets and have few western comforts such as lighting, hot water etc. Take water purification tablets and water bladders since all supplies (including mineral water) are packed in by donkeys or porters.

Road to Syabrubesi is terrible so take a reliable jeep rather than the bus. Expect at least 1 flat tire each way.”

“Different kind of landscapes, from jungle to pastures and snowy peaks, always amazing. Not crowdy but you won't walk more then 2 hours without find small villages, where you can sleep and eat. The only bad side is the road to get to Syabrubesi. Local bus takes 8 hours and makes is way through landslides. Jeep is safer.”

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.
