Why you should do the Langtang Valley Trek?

Here is what you can expect!

The stupendous journey of the Langtang Valley Trek is something you should not miss out on. The 8 days of Langtang Trek through the subtropical forest with the Langtang River reverberating in the background and birds chirping in the distance are a very unique experience.

The cherry on top is the stunning, magnificent mountains that not only create an ambiance of peace but also remove you from all the chaos of city life.

For those looking for a spiritual retreat, the prayer flags and monasteries that recite the mantra of peace can soothe your mind and spirit. Breathe in the clean air beneath the azure sky as you take in the expansive vista from the summit of Kyanjin Ri (4773 m).

Strolling down a trail that is occasionally flat, occasionally hilly, and occasionally downhill will undoubtedly serve as a reminder of how similar our lives are to the trail.

The Langtang communities were one of the heavily impacted areas during the earthquake, but they are still resilient and strong. The devastating 2015 earthquake not only destroyed houses and trails but also martyred many locals and tourists alike.

It is a dark day in Nepal's history. But despite the heartbreaking loss, the people of Langtang have rebuilt their homes and villages and are still determined to give the best experiences to the tourists.

Expansive Views of the Langtang Range

The breathtaking panoramic mountain vistas of the towering Himalayan peaks, among them 7,227-meter-high Langtang Lirung, can be viewed from the Langtang Valley Trek.

Other notable peaks were Langshisa Ri (6,427 m), Langtang Ri (7,205 m), Yala Peak (5,520 m), Loenpo Gang (6,979 m), Kyunga Ri (6,601 m), Gangchenpo (6,387 m), and Dorje Lakpa (6,966 m). The view from the summit of Kyanjin Ri (4772 m) is truly otherworldly.

The rough mountain terrain adds a sense of struggle and achievement that allows trekkers to enjoy their trek even more. The Langtang Mountains Range influences trekkers with its natural and spiritual trails. The experience is further enhanced by the ever-changing interplay of light and shadow on the diverse ecological landscapes.

The highest point of Langtang Valley Trek is Kyanjin Ri (4772 meters) or Tserko Ri (5033 m/16,500 ft) Summit.

Depending on the time and choice, you can either summit the Kyanjin Ri or the Tserko Ri. The adventure to the top of the majestic Kyanjin Ri, soaring to a height of about 4,773 meters, is one of its kind. Starting from Kyanjin Gompa, this demanding yet very rewarding climb passes over rocky terrain and steep hills.

In return, adventurers are granted breathtaking views from Kyanjin Summit, with a 360-degree view of the whole Langtang Valley and snow-capped peaks like Dorje Lakpa and Langtang Lirung dominating the skyline.

That sense of accomplishment and happiness brought about by this view is something that you will cherish forever and realize the tremendous impact the mountains have on our lives.

Tserko Ri is another adventurous peak that stands even taller than Kyanjin Ri, at an elevation of 5,033 meters. It is a formidable, steep uphill climb to the summit that will leave you gasping for air.

Despite the tortuous climb to the top, the view from the peak is exceptionally rewarding. However, you will require an extra day at Kyanjin if you wish to submit Tserko Ri, as it involves a whole day of activity.

Local Foods: Taste of the Traditions

One of the fun activities you can try out during the Langtang Trek is trying the local cuisine. Tibetan-influenced foods like Thukpa, Thenduk, Sherpa Stew, and Tibetan Bread are sure to make your tastebuds happy and your stomach full.

If you explore around a little, you might even get the taste of the local alcohol. Although it is not recommended while you are ascending, you can indulge once you have completed the summit of your trek.

Cheese Factory of the Kyanjin Gompa is another popular destination among trekkers. The Yak cheese produced in the factory is considered a delicacy and something trekkers buy to snack on the trail.

Langtang National Park

Established in 1976 AD, the Langtang National Park is the first Himalayan national park in Nepal. Expanding through three districts, Rasuwa, Sindupalchwok, and Nuwakot, with a total area of 1710 sq km touching the Nepal-Tibet border.

The Langtang Valley trekking trail is situated within the boundary of Langtang National Park in Rasuwa district. Rich in flora and fauna with subtropical vegetation surrounded by the glamorous mountains engrained with the Tamang and Sherpa communities and cultures.

This trip is more than just a trek; it guarantees you a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The National Park is making sure to conserve and preserve the flora and fauna that are part of our ecosystem. 

Encounters with Wildlife

The trail of the Langtang Trek takes you inside the Langtang National Park, where you can sight different species of rare and endangered flora and fauna. During the entire trek, you will be walking in a part of the National Park along with the buffer zone.

The musical sound of the birds will make you stop and look around as colorful birds fly over your head. With more than 250 species of birds, you are sure to encounter a few of these majestic creatures.

The sub-tropical Alpine Forest and expansive high meadows of Langtang are home to some of the most majestic species of animals. If you are lucky, you can see animals like musk deer, Himalayan tahr, red panda, Himalayan black bear, snow leopard, wild dog, ghoral, serow, and many more.

Tamang Heritage Trail

The Tamang Heritage Trail is another popular trail in the Langtang region. Focusing more on the community and culture along with the nature and mountains, the trail begins with Syaprubesi but then diverts through the Tamang communities scattered around the surrounding hills and mountains.

You will get an exclusive look into the lives of the Tamang and Sherpa communities, along with expansive views of the mountain ranges. You will also get a chance to soak in the hot spring and wash away your tiredness.

Gosaikunda Lakes Trek

Equally popular as the Langtang Valley Trek, the Gosaikunda Trek can be an additional adventure to your trekking package if you have another spare week. A holy pilgrimage site among both Buddhists and Hindus, it is a popular destination among even the Nepalese people.

The lakes offer a sense of serenity among the trekkers, who get lost in the unmatched beauty of the lakes along with the towering peaks. It also holds a huge festival once a year called Janai Purnima, where devotees from all over Nepal trek to the holy lake.

When is the best time for the Langtang Valley Trek?

The absolute best seasons for trekking in Nepal are considered to be spring (March–May) and autumn (September–November). The moderate temperature during spring and autumn will present you with a clear sky and a sunny day for the best trekking experience.

The winter is also a perfect time to trek, as the views will be crystal clear, but it will be exceptionally cold, so you have to thoroughly prepare for that. The summer season, or monsoon season, is not generally recommended as the rain triggers landslides in many areas, and it can be very risky to travel during this time.

Is the Langtang Valley Trek difficult?

The Langtang Trek is actually known for its short and easy trail. If you are a beginner trekker, then this is the best option for you. The trekking trail covers an up-and-down path with sloped hills, which can be a challenge at certain times, but with a steady pace and strong resolve, it is easy to tackle.

The altitude gain might have an impact, but with proper acclimatization, hydration, and diet, it will be easy to overcome. The trek is considered easy, but training and preparation before the trek are extremely crucial. You will have to maintain a certain level of physical fitness, which will make your trekking experience a whole lot smoother.

How long is the Langtang Valley Trek? (Distance of the Langtang Trek)

The 8-Day Langtang Trek covers a total distance of 65 kilometers, or 40 miles, excluding Kyanjin Ri. With the added distance of Kyanjin Ri, the total distance becomes 77 kilometers or 48 miles. 

It can increase if you add other side quests such as Kyanjin Gompa, Tserko Ri, etc. Therefore, on average, you will be walking around 10 kilometers, anywhere from 5 to 6 hours per day.

What is the height of the Langtang Trek?

The Langtang Valley Trek takes you to a higher altitude, above 3500 meters. The notable landmarks are the Langtang Valley at an elevation of 3,430 meters above sea level and Kyanjin village at an altitude of 3870 meters.

And two peaks: Kyanjin Ri at 4773 meters and Tserko Ri at 5033 meters, one of which you will summit during your trek.

Cost Information for the 8-Day Langtang Valley Trek: Guides, Porters, Bus, and Permits Costs (2024-2025)

How do I reach the Langtang Valley Trek, and how much does it cost?

The Langtang Valley Trek starts in a small village called Syabrubesi. To reach Syabrubesi from Kathmandu, you can take a local bus, which takes anywhere from 6-7 hours.

The guides and porters have their own set price set by the government. The registered trekking guides are available at a rate of $35 per day. The cost of the guides is already included in the package you purchase. However, you can tip them as you like.

As for porters, they charge $25 per day, and they are only available once you hire them. Their cost, however, is not included in your trek package and is an additional cost.

Itinerary

Expand all +Collapse all -

Our Langtang Valley Trek begins with a scenic drive to Syabrubesi, the gateway to Langtang National Park. We’ll break up our travel with a few rest stops along the way, including a break at Trishuli Bazaar, where we’ll sit down to lunch and enjoy some local flavors. All told, you can expect to spend approximately eight hours in transit today. But this isn’t a dull highway commute—instead, you’ll be passing through charming rural villages, winding mountain roads, and rolling fields of rice, maize, and millet. As we follow the Trishuli River and ascend to Dhunche, we’ll even start to glimpse the snowy peaks of the Ganesh Himal range.

When we arrive in Syabrubesi, we’ll stretch our legs and take a stroll through town. Tonight, you’ll get your first taste of teahouse accommodations. Most trekking routes in Nepal are peppered with these little lodges, where you can expect simple, delicious meals and a comfortable bed each night. Throughout the Langtang Valley Trek, we’ll enjoy the hospitality of a teahouse at the end of each day’s hike. We’ll pick out one of the best available teahouses here in Syabrubesi to spend the night.

  • Accommodation: Local Hotel
  • Driving time: 7-8 hrs approx
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 1,550m/5,086ft

After breakfast in Syabrubesi, it’s time to take your first real steps on the Langtang Valley Trek. We’ll get started by crossing a suspension bridge over the Bhote Koshi river, which flows across the border from Tibet. The trail heads uphill from here, climbing through a dense woodland of pine and rhododendron as it parallels the Langtang Khola river gorge. This is a landscape of sparkling waterfalls and hidden hot springs, where rhesus macaques and red pandas move through the forest canopy while we pass beneath them. Keep on the lookout for the wild, oversized beehives perched high on the nearby cliffs; locals expend great effort to harvest the honey from these hives, often at considerable personal risk.

As we come across terraced farms and quiet streams, we’ll approach several small villages. Most notable amongst them are Bamboo and Renche. We’ll stop for lunch at one of these peaceful mountain communities, where you’ll enjoy the opportunity to refuel your body and rest your feet. In the afternoon, we’ll ascend past Bamboo to reach the charming village of Lama Hotel. We’ll stop here for the night, selecting a comfortable teahouse for our overnight accommodations. 

  • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge (Tea house)
  • Trekking time: 6 hrs approx.
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 2,380m/7,809ft

Today’s trail begins by climbing through forests of pine and rhododendron, passing a number of small mountain communities, and rising above the watercourse of the Langtang Khola to reveal a splendid view of the Langtang Himal range. These mountains are the defining feature of the Langtang Valley. Their highest peak is known as Langtang Lirung, which ascends to higher than 7,000 meters in altitude. We’ll hike in the shadow of its mighty summit as we traverse a glacial valley on the way to Godatabel, a settlement that marks the approximate halfway point on our route for the day.

After sitting down to lunch at Godatabel, we’ll hike along a path adorned with prayer wheels and chortens. As we penetrate deeper into the mountains, these reminders of Buddhist faith appear more frequently, and we’ll marvel at their beautiful inscriptions and loving craftsmanship. We’ll continue across alpine meadows where livestock can often be found grazing as we make the final approach to Langtang village. This Tibetan-influenced town was damaged badly during the 2015 earthquake, and a memorial in the village now commemorates the lives lost in that tragedy. But dedicated reconstruction efforts have revitalized Langtang, and we’ll make our own contribution to its economy by spending the night at one of its best trekking lodges this evening.

  • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge (Tea house)
  • Trekking time: 5-6 hrs approx.
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 3450m/11315ft

Lovers of alpine scenery will cherish the next two days as the best of the entire ten-day Langtang Valley Trek. The views in store for us are nothing short of astonishing, and we’ll want to get an early start in order to make the most of them. Departing Langtang village, we’ll ascend along steep paths and come across a handful of tiny settlements used by yak herders. This is a reliable sign that you’re trekking at a genuinely high altitude; yaks are rarely found below 3,500 meters in elevation. After getting a good look at the shaggy creatures, we’ll continue alongside the course of the Langtang Khola.

As we draw closer to the community of Kyanjin Gompa, we’ll come across an extraordinary example of a Buddhist mani wall. These walls are constructed with stones of varying shapes and sizes, and each is carved with important religious mantras. The mani wall we’ll pass on the way into Kyanjin Gompa is believed to be the second-largest of its type in the entirety of Nepal. When we arrive in the village, we’ll get checked in at one of the local teahouses and drop off our bags to explore the surroundings at our leisure. Today’s relatively short hike allows us to adjust to the higher elevation while taking the time to enjoy awe-inspiring mountain panoramas from the comfort of a café terrace or bakery window. Later this evening, we’ll return to our teahouse for dinner and a good night’s sleep.

  • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge (Tea house)
  • Trekking time: 3-4 hrs approx.
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 3870m/12697ft

The sixth day of our Langtang Valley Trek itinerary is typically set aside for you to explore the fabulous viewpoints scattered throughout the surroundings of Kyanjin Gompa. The most popular option is to embark on the steep ascent to Tsergo Ri, which affords astounding views of no fewer than 21 distinct summits. Chief amongst them is Langtang Lirung, the highest summit of the Langtang Himal at 7,234 meters. The lookout point itself is situated at 4,984 meters, and it can take up to eight hours to complete the round trip, making for a challenging but rewarding excursion.

For a gentler alternative, we can consider trekking to Kyanjin Ri instead. We’ll need to make an early start to reach the top of this hill just northeast of Kyanjin Gompa. This is an easier and shorter ascent than the hike to Tsergo Ri, but it’s still a real climb: Kyanjin Ri sits at approximately 4,600 meters. The view from the top is every bit as good as the view from Tsergo Ri, and you’ll enjoy a 360-degree field of snow-capped mountains, sprawling valleys, and frozen lakes no matter which route you choose. This evening, we’ll return to Kyanjin Gompa to spend a second night at our guesthouse.

  • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge (Tea house)
  • Trekking time: 5-6 hrs approx.
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 4950m/16236ft

As we bid farewell to the colorful Buddhist community of Kyanjin Gompa, we’ll set out for one of the longest stretches of trekking in the Langtang Valley. We’ll be hiking all the way back to Lama Hotel today, but we’ll actually be able to move more quickly and comfortably now that we’re descending through the mountains. We’ll pass by familiar yak herding settlements and wide alpine pastures as we lose about 1,400 meters throughout the course of our descent, and with each step, the promise of a hot meal in Langtang village grows more and more alluring.

After lunch, we’ll take some time to visit any sites you might’ve missed here in Langtang village, such as the earthquake memorial, before setting out on the path to Lama Hotel. We’ll check-in at the best available teahouse here and unburden ourselves of our heavy packs. Then it’s time to kick back and enjoy the ambiance of pines and rhododendrons blowing in a mountain wind while villagers come and go in pursuit of their daily routines.

  • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge (Tea house)
  • Trekking time: 5-6 hrs approx.
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 2,560m/7970ft

After breakfast this morning, we’ll begin our hike back to Syabrubesi. We actually have two routes to consider for today’s trek. The first lead back to Syabrubesi the same way we left it, descending through pine forest to pass Bamboo and Renche before reaching the Bhote Khola river crossing. A second, steeper option affords splendid views of the Langtang Valley and offers the chance to explore a new trail instead of retracing our steps. Your guide will help you decide which route is best, based on seasonal weather patterns and our own trekking stamina.

Whichever route we select, we’ll stroll into Syabrubesi with the satisfaction of having completed the entire Langtang Valley Trek. After getting checked in at one of the teahouses in town, we’ll gather for dinner to celebrate our accomplishments. One thing’s for sure—with all those miles behind us, we’re bound to sleep well tonight!

  • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge (Tea house)
  • Trekking time: 5-6 hrs approx.
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
  • Max. Altitude: 1520m/4985ft

We’ll linger over a tasty breakfast this morning before departing from the Langtang Valley by road. We’ll follow the same scenic route we used about one week ago, tracing the bends and curves of the Bhote Koshi river as it flows past idyllic rural villages and expansive fields of cultivation on the way back to Kathmandu. As you watch the dreamlike imagery of rural Nepal rolling past your window, you’ll think back on the memories you’ve made, the people you’ve met, and the miles you’ve covered with your own two feet.

When we arrive in the city, we’ll check-in at the hotel so you can enjoy some well-deserved rest and relaxation. There’s nothing quite like a hot shower and a nap after completing a week of trekking in the Himalayas! This evening, take some time to explore the tourist markets of the city’s vibrant Thamel neighborhood. This is also a great second opportunity to visit the cultural and historical attractions that give Kathmandu its distinct flavor. After dinner, you’ll spend the night at your hotel.

Please note: The trekking times indicated above are approximate and are best used as general guidelines. During the Langtang Valley Trek, you’ll be able to travel freely at your own pace.

  • Accommodation: Hotel
  • Driving time: 6- 7 hrs approx.

Do I need travel insurance for the Langtang Valley Trek?

Yes, having travel insurance is mandatory for trekking in Nepal. You must get travel insurance from your home country that covers accidental and medical costs as well as emergency helicopter rescue up to 6,000 meters.

Therefore, travel insurance is a must! We will need a document proof of your insurance before we start the trek. Having travel insurance is the best way to assure your safety in case of emergencies and ensure your evacuation and rescue.

How much do I tip my guide and porter?

There isn't a specific amount set for tipping the guides and porters who worked hard to make sure you had the best trekking experience. However, it is expected to give at least 10-15% to porters and 15-20% of the total trip cost to the trekking guides. But ultimately, the tip amount depends on you.

Tipping individually is recommended, as it shows appreciation for their individual efforts, but tipping the whole group is alright, too, for their collective efforts. Showing verbal appreciation towards the guides and porters with a handshake gesture can go a long way.

How do I get a visa for Nepal?

Getting a visa for Nepal is quite simple. All you need is a passport that is valid for at least six months, and you can get a visa upon arrival. The visa charge for a three-month tourist visa is $40 USD, which can be paid at the airport. And Chinese and Indian tourists can enter visa-free with a valid ID.

    Outstanding service from my first enquire

    As soon as I emailed asking questions about a trek in Langtang valley I would get immediate response from Dill and his team (even a WhatsApp) so communication was great.

    Literally on my arrival everything was taken care off ride from the airport to hotel etc etc.

    I met my guide Samir he treated me like a king it was a little bit of a culture shock at first but his hospitality was absolutely second to none he was extremely attentive made sure I had everything I needed and helped me out on the trek the whole way, I was sick the last couple of days of the trek he wouldn’t even let me carry my own bag he insisted on carrying it and I could genuinely see he was concerned for my health
    ( I was fine in the end). Samir was good fun also on the trek teaching me a trekking song and telling me about his family too. He was just a great host I can not express that enough.

    I would not think twice about using ALPINE RAMBLE again they really welcomed me and i feel like a very valuable customer and great value for money. They did not spare expense on getting the best rooms on the trek I was never left hungry or needing anything.

    Absolutely incredible trip i would recommend Samir as a guide and Dill and his team in a heat beat.

    FANTASTIC

    Alpineramble did a great job during our trip. The staff was very friendly and supportive. The accommodations during the trip were very nice and our guide ist was always flexible to adjust the tour to our wishes (longer walking distances, different destinations, etc.). Even in Katmandu Alpineramble was very helpful in organizing local drivers, hotels etc.

    Dil Gurung is a safe pair of hands. This summarizes what he does in a nutshell. He has fantastic emotional quotient and is attentive to detail and to every single member of his expedition client team. I would go back with him to the Nepali Himalayas any time. I would endorse him as an excellent guide for an international audience. It is great to see that his enterpreneurship has led him to set up his own outfit. His maturity and conscientiousness are remarkable.
