Langtang Valley trek is one of those striking teahouses outdoors in the wild, with richly green flowing meadows. We view Himalayan peaks reaching the clouds and misty valleys hiding from discovery. This is Langtang as the curtains rise. Langtang valley trek has so much cultural wealth. We see this as we hike into the hearts of Sherpa and Yolmo villages. Some say holidays come a cropper, but making the right choices delivers value. We want to make a choice that we can talk about for years. Most importantly, the Langtang Valley trek presents the ideal vacation for individuals and, more so, the family. Cost for Langtang Valley trek ranges from $680 to $720 per person

More on the Langtang valley trek Route

There’s so much of nature you will be able to see just within a half day’s drive from your hotel in Kathmandu. Despite its gorgeous beauty and openness, the Langtang region still remains aloof. You won’t find the hordes that trek the trails of Annapurna and the Everest region. During the trek, we drive out of our hotel to Syabru Bensi from where it all starts. We soon reach the higher elevations of the valley, hiking at a gentle pace to enjoy the surroundings. The alpine landscapes are awesome! The warm friendly ethnic folks we meet on the way smile a trail into our hearts. Langtang valley trek would be ideal for those on budget time.

The animals may not be around to say ‘hello’ to you in typical forest settings. But here the animals are not so afraid of humans, only a bit shy. Above all, if you love birds you will find yourself enjoying a happy welcome with their merry chirps. They stick with you throughout the course of your trek. Langtang valley trek concludes on our way down from Lama Hotel as we hike down from the village of Syabru Besi. We are also likely to meet Hindu pilgrims on their way up or down to Gosainkunda lake. We slowly drop lower into the lovely Helambu region. Langtang valley trek in April is a stunning wonder to watch the rhododendrons in full bloom. This blends well into the jaw-dropping landscapes. A warm comfortable bed welcomes us at our hotel. Our trek can start from Syabru Besi or Dhunche. Both are bustling towns that open up Langtang to trekkers from all over the planet.

Trip Highlights of Langtang Valley Trek

  • Himalayan peaks touch swirling misty clouds, sacred lakes and deep hidden valleys – just a day cruise from ancient Kathmandu.
  • A culturally rich trek into the home of the Tamang and the Yolmo Sherpa people.
  • Traditional tea houses and a warm welcome on the trail.
  • 3* hotels in Kathmandu at the start and end of the trek to pamper weary bodies, you have a choice of either.

Itinerary

When you fly into Kathmandu, you can see the valley, the Himalayas, and the terraced fields below. As soon as you clear customs, one of our representatives will meet you outside the airport and drive you directly to your hotel.
On the second day, you will travel from Kathmandu to Syabru Besi, which might take around 7 to 8 hours. You will leave Kathmandu early in the morning and travel by private vehicle to reach Syabrubesi. As we depart the Kathmandu Valley, the journey climbs high over slopes. It offers breathtaking views of the Annapurna Himalaya to the west, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, and the lesser peaks of the Langtang mountain range up ahead. Keep your camera handy as you enter this mountainous area since you'll also see rivers, terraced hillsides, and rural settlements. Before ascending to Dunche and the Langtang National Park, pass through the busy town of Trisuli. After passing through Dunche, it's another hour of downhill travel before you reach Syabrubesi and your overnight lodging.
On the third day, you will officially start trekking. After breakfast, you will trek from Sypru Besi to Lama Hotel, situated at an altitude of 2470 meters. The trek will take around 6 hours. The trail passes the neighbouring Bhote Kosi (Tibet River), which originates in Tibet, and then gently ascends through subtropical forests to meet the Syabrubesi trail. Look out for langur monkeys in the trees, as well as a variety of animals like yellow-throated martens, wild boars, and red pandas, as you ascend through uninhabited oak and rhododendron forests. On the way, you will come across beautiful villages, landscapes, and the Langtang river. Although the ascent to Lama Hotel through the forest is hard, the reward is a pleasant lodge with a comfy bed for the night.
After resting for the whole night at the Lama hotel, you will trek towards the Langtang valley, which will be a 5 to 6-hour trek. During the trek, you will see incredible views of the highest peak of the Langtang mountain range, 'Langtang Lirung', yak fields, native Tamang villages, and Buddhist prayer wheels. You'll continue hiking through the forest after breakfast at the Lama Hotel, occasionally catching sight of Langtang Lirung between the trees. The trail emerges from the forest, and you can see snow-capped mountains on either side of the valley as you reach Ghora Tabela. The road slowly ascends as the valley widens, passing a few makeshift towns inhabited by herders who bring their animals to graze in high summertime pastures. The trail's next section is a melancholy reminder of the 2015 earthquake disaster. There is now simply a vast rock field where the village of Langtang previously stood. Your journey will aid the survivors.
On the 5th day of your trek, you will trek to Kyangjin Gompa from the Langtang valley. The trail ascends gradually from Langtang Valley as the valley widens and the views expand while passing through yak farms. The trail arrives at the Kyangjin settlement after crossing several minor streams and moraines. If you want to try local cheese and curd delicacies, this is a beautiful place to try some. Once you reach Kyangjin Gompa, you'll have plenty of time to relax in the afternoon and spend the night by lunchtime. Take a break at the village bakery and cafe or go for a stroll. For breathtaking views, proceed up the valley toward Langshisha Kharka if you have the energy.
After spending a night at a Kyangjin and exploring nearby monasteries and a cheese factory, you will trek to the highpoint of the Langtang Trek, 'Kyangjin Ri', located at an elevation of 4350 meters. Kyangjin Ri gives a 360-degree panoramic view of the Langtang peaks. On the Langtang Trek, most hikers only ascend to this height. It's advisable to leave early for this trip to enjoy the best views, as clouds tend to gather in the late afternoon. Once you spend some time at Kyangjin Ri, you will return to Kyangjin Gompa to rest overnight.
Day 7 will be the starting day of returning from the trek. On this day, you will leave Kyangjin Gompa after breakfast and retrace your steps along the valley, passing Mundu and Ghora Tabela as you follow the Langtang Khola River. Even if the trail is flat in some areas, you'll go faster going down than you did going up. After stopping for lunch along the way, you'll continue travelling in a downward direction until you reach Lama Hotel. Enjoy the scenic views and the gentle downhill terrain. Rest at the Lama hotel after you reach there.
On the eighth day, you will trek to Syabru Bensi from the Lama hotel. The trek will take around 5 hours to complete. You will continue walking back to the settlement of Syabrubesi after breakfast from the Lama Hotel. Once you reach Syabru Besi, rest there for the day.
Day 9 will be the second last day of your trek, in which you will drive from Syabru Besi to Kathmandu. Start your seven-hour return journey to Kathmandu after an early breakfast in Syabrubesi. As you leave this hilly area and return to the busy metropolis, you will witness stunning views of the snow-capped mountains and rivers, terraced hillsides, and rural settlements. You'll be taken to your hotel when you arrive, where the rest of the afternoon and evening is up to you. Take a rickshaw, bicycle, or foot tour of Kathmandu's streets to view anything you might have missed or look for souvenirs at the start of your stay.
On the 10th day, you will leave your hotel and depart to the Kathmandu international airport, from where you will fly to your respective homeland. You can choose to take a final tour of the temples and alleyways of Kathmandu or do some shopping for your friends and family members. A driver will be waiting for you at your hotel to get you to the airport for your journey back home.
