Representatives of ‘Adventure Himalayan Travels’ will pick you up from Tribhuvan International Airport of Kathmandu and take you to our Hotel where you will be shortly notified about your daily itinerary. Dinner will be served in the late evening.

    The road winds through a series of twists and turns persistently for about 8 to 9 hours to cover 117km, ending in Syabrubesi. We will find a lodge for us to spend the first night.

      It  takes about five and half hours of walking. The first part of the trail crosses through Bhote Koshi and follows the Langtang Khola. This trail is gradually ascent up to Bamboo passing through Landslide. Afterwards, you trek ascends gently to Rimche (2400m.) through Bamboo (1960m.) which lies at the bank of Langtang Khola. You can have lunch at this place if you like. And at the end your trail is level to the Lama Hotel. En route you could see red pandas, monkey and bear if you are lucky

        After Lama hotel you will climb through a Rhododendron forest . the ground covered by moss. Trees have ferns and epiphytic orchids on them. It looks like semi tropical jungle.
        As you continue climbing there are occasional glimpses of Langtang Lirung between the trees. At Ghora Tabela [3000m], the trail emerges from the forest. Once there was a Tibetan resettlement project here, but now it is a Nepalese army post though it has no permanent inhabitants. The trail continues to climb gently and the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during the summer months. There is a monastery, which you can visit shortly before arriving at the village of Langtang, the headquarters of the Langtang National Park. The houses of Langtang and its neighboring villages are of the flat-roofed Tibetan style, surrounded by stone walls enclosing fields of buckwheat, potatoes, wheat, turnips and barley

          The trail climbs gradually through small villages and yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyangjin. Here, there is a small monastery and a government-operated cheese factory. You should arrive at Kyangjin by lunch time allowing time to acclimatize and explore the area. It is a dramatic setting, with snow-covered peaks surrounding you in all directions such as Langtang Lirung, Ganjala peak, Tserko- Ri, Langsisa ri and many others.

            Khayanjing Gompa is the last permanent settlement with a small Gompa and a cheese factory. Use it as a base for day hikes, exploring the upper valley try to climbing the small hill north of Khayanjing or Tsergori(5033m). which lies upvalley from Khayanjing. Upper valley is ringed by spectacular snow peaks including fluted peak Langtang Lirung and the Tibetan named Dorje Lakpa.

              There are lots to explore in and around Kyanjin Gompa. We can unravel the glaciers and take a short trek to the Himalayan Yak pastures. Kyanjin Gompa gives the 360 degree views of Langtang Lirung, Genjempol and Kenga Himal ranges. Cheese factory, Buddhist monastery and Tsergo Ri (5033m) are other sites worthy visiting. Later we will travel back to Lama Hotel for night stay.

                You continue retracing your steps some of the way to Thulo Syabru, but then branch left ascending a steep path through forests to suddenly emerge with a view of Syabru and its extensive area of millet terraces. An undulating path brings you to this fascinating village where each house is set above its neighbor, in a long line up the very crest of the ridge. It’s a great place to wander about, catching glimpses of Tamang life, admiring the beautifully carved wooden windows or simply relaxing in the sun

                  After breakfast, we take a local bus back to Kathmandu, which takes about 8-9 hours. Celebratory Nepali dinner in Kathmandu.

                      • Langtang Valley trek 10 Days


                        I arrived in Kathmandu and had been on a previous tour, the Himilayan Adventure team head by Rana therefore picked me up from my previous hotel and took me to my new residence for the evening; here I met my guide and was given the detailed info regarding the holiday. Rana was very approachable and a great front man for the company. I started off on my trek the next day with Durga, my guide for the trek. I can honestly say that the experience was everything a trek should be, it was challenging, I explored local life, I made friends and I was 150% looked after. The guidance given by Durga was excellent; he pointed out fauna , flora and the Nepalese animals, he told me about the history related to the trek and most importantly spoke about how to best manage the trek, walking and breathing. Overall I had a magnificent time, no stone was left unturned. Thankyou Aditya for your utmost attention and to Rana for running such a great tour.

                        Second time trekking with this group. Excellent food and accommodation options. October seemed the best time to visit Nepal, specially for trekking as the weather is nicer. No delays whatsoever plus you can enjoy nice mountain back-drops from pretty much from anywhere. This visit, i even learned to cook some local dishes if Tea counts as one. I highly recommend Adventure Travels and Treks for anyone who wants to travel Nepal in the Future. Lots of options for Trekking and other activities. you wont be disappointed.
