“My husband and I just completed the 8-day Langtang Valley trek! We were guided by the amazing expert Ramesh, and our superman porter (and skillful jeep driver) Suresh. We had such a great time and are feeling very accomplished. We feel fortunate to have had these fellows with us as they made the trip so much more fun and interesting. They were patient, funny and never seemed annoyed at my very slow rate of both ascent and descent. Ramesh guided my husband Kevin up Tsergo Ri at an early hour while Suresh showed me around Kenjin Gompa and the yak cheese factory, and helped me while I had some mild altitude sickness. I felt like we were traveling with pals rather than hired hands. The trek itself was amazing. We had perfect weather and made excellent time despite my slowness! We ended up finishing a day early, and so on Ramesh’s suggestion we headed to Chisopani so we could ring in the new year with a mountain sunrise. It ended up being cold and cloudy, but keeping warm at the campfire talking with the guys was one of my most memorable moments of the trip. With this tour operator, you are well taken care of and you will have such a great experience!”

The name Langtang stems from the legend of a Buddhist lama following a runaway yak into the valley. ‘Lang’ is Tibetan for Yak and ‘teng’ means to follow. Today, the valley is still inhabited by yaks. Langtang lies within Langtang National Park, which is considered to be the first Himalayan national park. Mighty Langtang Lirung (7,246 m) dominates the valley, but there are other peaks visible during the trek. The area is inhabited by the Tamang ethnic group in the hilly areas and the Sherpas in the upper elevations.

The final resting point for the Langtang trek is Kyanjing Gompa (3,870 m), an idyllic mountain village rich in Sherpa culture and traditions. A moderately difficult hike up the Kyanjing Ri (4,980 m) or Tserko Ri (5,033 m) reveals awesome mountain views including Ganesh Himal (7,600 m), Mount Langtang II (7,227 m), Mount Dorje Lakpa (6,966 m), Mount Gang Chhenpo (6,388 m) and of course the tallest of them all - Langtang Lirung.

How to Get to Langtang Trek

View of Kyanjing Gompa in the snowy mountains.
Visit Kyanjing Gompa during your trek.

The trek starts from the small town of Syabrubesi (1550 m) which can be reached by road from Kathmandu in 8 to 9 hours. The bus ride itself is half the fun of this trekking trip as the road winds up and down through the beautiful high-hills region of Nepal. Occasional sights of blossoming rhododendron flowers is not uncommon and you can see dozens of beautiful waterfalls falling from the top of the hills. The mountainous road takes you through local villages where you can see real rural Nepali life. The bus-ride is somewhat bumpy but it makes up for it with an extremely scenic drive through the countryside of Nepal.

Best time to go to Langtang Trek

March to April and October to November are the best times for Langtang Valley trekking. The skies are clear, and you won’t encounter much rain or snow. Also, the tea houses are open. June to August are the rainy months and it’s best to avoid trekking during this period. From December to February, the higher reaches on the Langtang trek map will be covered with snow and the tea houses will be closed. For more information, check out our guide on trekking seasons in Nepal.

Langtang Trek - Highlights

  • Compared to treks like the trek to Annapurna Base Camp and Everest Base Camp hike, the Langtang trek is not crowded and is physically less demanding.
  • Pass through beautiful oak and rhododendron forests, alpine meadows, waterfalls and yak pastures, and see the stunning glaciers of Langtang Lirung.
  • The trek takes you through Langtang National Park, where you can spot red pandas, Himalayan tahr, and various species of birds.
  • Climb Kyanjin Ri for panoramic views of the Langtang peaks. The views extend to Tibet and Ganchenpo (Fluted Mountain) to the south.
  • Hike up to Kyanjin Ri and Tserko Ri to admire the view of snow-capped mountains.

Langtang Trek - Safety Considerations

Safety is always a primary concern here at Bookmundi, and we take the well-being of our trekkers very seriously, which is why we put emphasis on the following:

  • Hiring a guide who can manage logistics, medical issues, and other emergencies is a good idea.
  • Carry a portable water purifier to make sure you are drinking clean water on the way.
  • Keep cash handy to pay for food and accommodation at tea houses.
  • Though this is not considered a challenging trek, you’ll need to get acclimatized to the altitude, irrespective of your fitness levels.
  • Expect a simple menu at tea houses. They typically serve eggs, porridge, chapati, dal bhat, curry, noodles, pasta, fried rice and momos, along with hot and cold beverages.
