Lantang Trek Information:

Langtang Trekking. Langtang is situated close to the Tibetan border in the north of Kathmandu. The scenery here is splendid and the trekking is more adventurous as visited by fewer trekkers. The forest in the region have temperate and sub-alpine vegetation. Wildlife includes migratory birds, deer, Monkey, Thar, and Pika.

The Tamang people living in Langtang Region resembles the religion of Tibet since the people are believed to be inhabited through Tibet to the very place. Langtang trek goes through the larch and rhododendron forests engulfed with wild flowers and birds. Spring time is the best for trek to this region. You won’t miss the golden weather of Langtang area where you can see the crystal mountains, wild birds, and the greenary forests waiting for you to explore them.

The area is rewarded with the stunning views of the Manaslu, Ganesh Himal in the west & even as far as the Annapurna massif. A series of undulating ridges offers delightful walking before descending to the edge of Kathmandu.

Major Attractions: Langtang National Park, the habitant of endangered Red Panda is the major attraction here in Langtang region. If you are lucky, you will get to see this rare Red Panda. You will also see the culture of Tibetan origin people which is another attraction.

The Langtang trek is a trek with real heart. The Langtang Valley is one of the most beautiful places in Nepal and was once the darling of trekkers seeking stunning landscapes and authentic culture along with heartwarming hospitality in delightful homestay guest houses — all within easy reach of Kathmandu.

However, the Langtang Valley is almost devoid of visitors these days as the people of Langtang are continuing to rebuild their lives after the 2015 earthquake. Survivors of the landslides caused by the earthquake were forced to leave the valley, but now they have come back to reclaim their homeland, rebuild their homes and re-establish their farms.

Trekking in this beautiful valley will support the people of Langtang by providing much-needed income to rebuild in a sustainable and secure way. This is not charity; this is the business end of sustainable travel, where your travel choices can respectfully support local people while preserving their dignity, their culture and their way of life. Be wowed by nature, be humbled by the human spirit and be a part of local solutions when you choose to trek in Langtang.

The trek starts at the small town of Syabru Besi. You will trek through magnificent forests to the high alpine meadows and yak pastures around Kyangjin Gompa (a Buddhist monastery). After an (optional) day hike up to the top of Kyangjin Ri (peak), where the 360-degree views of the Himalayan mountains are truly spectacular, you retrace your route back down the valley and drive back to Kathmandu.

If time is limited and money isn’t an issue, consider adding a helicopter ride out from Kyanjin. Not only will this shorten the trip significantly and prevent you from needing to retrace your route, but you’ll have unforgettable views that can’t be had any other way.

Day 2Drive Kathmandu to Syabrubesi

Leave Kathmandu early for the seven-hour drive to the entrance of the Langtang Valley. While the Tamang Heritage Trail is not so far from Kathmandu, the road is hilly and winding (though spectacular), climbing high and providing us with superb panoramic views of the Annapurnas, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and the peaks of the Langtang region. The road then plunges down to the Trisuli River valley, which it follows for most of the day’s drive.

Day 3Trek Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel (2,470m) -5 to 6 hours

As the first day of trekking, we are exciting; the first part of the trail crosses through Bhote Koshi and follows the Langtang Khola and gradually climbs to Bamboo (1960m) enjoy through the rhododendron and bamboo forests. The variety wildlife; yellow-throated martens, wild boars, langur monkeys, red pandas and Himalayan black bears etc. are inhabitance of this forest. Afterward, your trek ascends gently to Rimche (2400m) through Bamboo which lies at the bank of Langtang Khola with few houses. Probably, we will have lunch at this place if you like. And at the end, your trail is level to the Lama Hotel for the overnight stay.

Day 4Trek Lama Hotel to Langtang (3,430m) -5 to 6 hours

Today, at the beginning the trail climbs up towards a steep forest slope to the Langtang River. The trail follows Gumanechok, Ghoda Tabela literally it means the Horse Stable. After this, the trail is slightly gradual and beautiful in the valley with the grazing Yaks. After sometime descends into a valley, the trail crosses a stream and climbs past several water-driven prayer wheels to the large settlement of Langtang. This is one of the old villages along this trekking route and the view from here is more spectacular as we get closer to mountain. Rest of the day we walk around the village and stay overnight Guest house.

Day 5Trek Langtang to Kyanjin Gompa (3,870m) -3 to 4 hours

The trail leads us through the tiny village, stone-built houses and climb to a Chorten and passed a huge mani along a gentle path of a hill. We have a chance to test cheese and curd by Yak milk, it is remarkable of this place. This is a shorter walk but enough for acclimatization. The surroundings are interesting also because of the famous Cheese factory. This beautiful valley is in the lap of the Langtang Lirung and others around us. This is a good place to explore local culture similar as Tibetan which has been dragging from centuries.

Day 06Rest day in Kyangjin or climb Kyangjin Ri (4,850 m)

Today is a day to rest and explore around. We visit the monastery and the cheese factory or may walk up the moraine to see the spectacular ice faces and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung or ascend Kyangjin Ri (4350m) and Tserko Ri (5,000m), which is highest point of this trek, directly behind the village, for a breath-taking panorama of the langtang Lirung, Langtang range, Kinshung, Yansa Tsenji and the foot of the huge Lirung Glacier. Descend to the guesthouse for overnight.

Day 07Trek back to Lama hotel

From Kyangjin retrace the route you followed up the valley, following the Langtang Khola to Mundu village and on to Ghora Tabela. The descent will certainly be faster than the ascent. After lunch, continue the steep descent to Lama Hotel.

Day 08Trek to Syabru Besi & drive back to Kathmadnu

Continue retracing your steps to Syabru Besi, enjoying the quiet forested hills. If you are feeling fit, take the spectacular route from Rimche via Sherpa Gaon to Syabru Besi; it will take much longer to reach the ultimate destination, but it’s a stunning detour. Afternoon drive back to Kathmandu.
