  • The most happening trekking region from Kathmandu

The Langtang Himal region is in the northern part of Kathmandu Valley, south of the Tibetan border, surrounded by spell-binding high peaks. It has become famous ever since the British mountaineer Bill Tilman described it as the most beautiful valley in the world due to its profoundness of alpine plants, stunning Mount Langtang Lirung (7,227 m), roaring rivers, and incredible terrain in isolation.

So, the Langtang Valley trek is also known as the journey to hunt the hidden treasure in the course, full of natural and cultural diversity up to Gosaikunda and more, while the valley itself is covered with blooming flowers in the summer, followed by completely snow-clad Shisapangma, or Gosaithan 8,027 m, the highest summit in the Langtang region of Tibet.

The high Himalayan zone, with temperate and sub-alpine vegetation and dense oak forest as the major highlights of the area, including the mesmerizing rhododendron forest in the spring, is inhabited thickly by Tamang and Sherpa of Tibetan origin, quite distinct from the Sherpa of the Everest region, although both show similarity in religious practices, language and dress to Tibetan.

The Langtang valley trek combined with the Helambhu region is more stunning and provides a deep insight into the ethnic Tamang, whose origin also links to Tibet, with considerably earlier settlements in Nepal than Sherpas in the more serene upper Himalayas.

The Valley of Glaciers, Langtang Trek, is one of the shortest yet most adventurous trekking experiences to write in your diary of life. It is not only memorable but also a more comfortable and authentic off-beaten trail encompassing all the charms of the Himalayas equivalent to the Everest and Annapurna region trekking.

What to expect at the Langtang Valley Trek?

Trekking in the high Himalayas is one of the most significant ways to reflect, rebirth, and find the real you. So is the Langtang Valley Trek. It is a common destination for travelers seeking an unmatched trekking experience in the pristine Himalayas, swanky in cultural and natural heritage, which is a golden chance that many do not get to explore the real mountain lifestyle of locals, wild flora and fauna, frosty glaciers, radiant mountains, and old religious monasteries to awaken and heal themselves internally.

The Valley of Langtang is a complete package made for those looking forward to trekking in the unspoiled Himalayan environment in a short amount within your budget.

Alpine scenery and raw social culture

 The pristine nature of the Himalayas offers you physically and spiritually healing lush meadows, stunning landscapes, glaciers, and majestic mountains soaring above all.

One such off-the-beaten trekking trail is the Langtang region, which seizes all the highlights no less to Everest Base Camp (EBC) and Annapurna Circuit Trek, passing through several settlements of indigenous Tamang and Sherpa, differing in family linkage, dress, and language from the Everest in more serenity and easy access than any other trekking region.

However, like every Himalayan trekking zone, this trail also tests your level of endurance in arduous alpine climatic conditions. To secure your safety at the top, cooperating with any travel and tour operators is the best option.

Striking Views of the Langtang Himalayan Ranges

Among other trekking regions of Nepal, the Langtang region stands as the unrivaled top destination. What makes it stand out among others is undoubtedly the majestic vistas of the mountain ranges beyond the sky and the unspoiled, pristine nature.

The heavenly surrounding views of Langtang Lirung (7,245 m), Dorje Lakpa (6,966 m), and Mt. Gaurishankar (7,134 m) throughout the trekking trail, and special glances from different vantage points and stopping points add more to the journey to die for.

The lush and blooming forests and hills, shimmering rivers and waterfalls, and untamed, rare wildlife are extra treats of the trek. You will pass several such beautiful and dense forests of rhododendrons and oaks throughout the trail. On a clear day, the view of Mt. Annapurna and Ganesh is magical to grasp all in. 

The natural fascination of Langtang National Park

Langtang National Park is nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas. The true natural gem of the Langtang region, abundant in flora and fauna with some of the most exclusive wildlife such as black bear, Himalayan Thar, red panda, and dzo, as well as rare species of deer and monkeys, was established in 1976 with the main objective of conserving the authentic natural beauty of the country.

Any kind of vacation, trekking experience, or expedition in the Langtang region is full of thrills while embracing the tropical and alpine forests on diverse landscapes compassed by stunning peaks such as Langtang Lirung, Yala Peak, Gangchhempo, etc.

While the natural hot spring, Gosaikunda’s holiest significance and allure are unmatchable to any others, the sacred warm spring receives thousands of pilgrimages each year, mainly on the occasion of Janai Purnima in August or September.

Magnificent Glaciers 

The valley of Langtang has a massive number of icy glaciers, so the valley is also known as ‘ the valley of glaciers’. The longest glacier in the Langtang region flows from the Himalayan summit of Langtang Lirung, with altitudes ranging from 4,500 m to 7,000 m covered largely by debris.

These glaciers create a crispy and sensational mood on the trail, making it the most pleasurable experience of trekking.

Must see Kyanjin Gompa

The last habitual land of the Langtang Valley is Kyanjin Gompa, the most honored and religiously important ancient monastery estimated to be 400 years old at the bottom of Langtang Lirung (7,227 m), Langshisha Ri (6,427 m), and Dorje Lakpa (6,966 m)

The Gompa is revered as the most sacred and notable Buddhist pilgrimage site, bordered by a small settlement, to learn basic aspects of Buddhist culture and Buddhism. The whole region is named after this tiny inhabitant, which is a main acclimatization spot to adapt to the high Himalayan altitude and avoid mountain sickness.

Once Must Visit Tsergo Ri

One of the major attractions of the Langtang Region is Tsergo Ri. It is the highest vantage point you will trek to on our 10-day Langtang Valley package, with incredible views of the nearby landscapes and extraordinary sights of moraines, glaciers, and the Himalayan peaks

It is a must-visit viewpoint at an elevation of 5,000 m above sea level in the Langtang National Park of Nepal, as the top of Tsergo Ri grants you a breathtaking, complete 360-degree view of encompassing mountain ranges worth a hike.

The trek to Tsergo usually begins in Kyanjin Gompa, located at 3,800 m above sea level, which is a 4-hour walk from Tsergo Ri. You are advised to carry water and food supplements before you begin the hike, as there aren’t any other water sources available en route except the local lodges and tea houses.

Easy access to the off-beaten trail

Langtang is an easy destination to trek from the Kathmandu Valley, located in the north. It is one of the closest and most easily accessible trekking routes from the capital city, which is only a 7-8 hour drive.

The trekking official starts from Syabrubeshi, the gateway of Langtang, which follows a comfortable off-beaten route to Kyanjin Gompa (3,803 m), the human settlement at the highest elevation of the Langtang region. 

Overall, the Langatnag region is the grandest alternative to the Annapurna base camp or the Everest base camp for every healthy trekker bound by limited time.

So, cost planning plays a vital role in any kind of trekking you are looking forward to, which helps you ensure your trip quality, experience, and realistic budget formation. In the absence of proper trekking cost planning, you ought to compromise on your essentials, such as nutrients, accommodation, and means of transportation for the trek.

On this factor, youngsters are more on the safer side as compared to older people, despite the expertise they have held for years.

Here is a list of things to do that can help greatly while you trek in the Langtang Valley, regardless of age, experience, and technical knowledge.

The trail then 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.

Useful Info

Mountain Sickness in the Langtang Valley Trek

Although the Langtang Valley Trek is moderate-grade, you are prone to acute mountain sickness as you will be hiking 5,000 m above sea level, ascending and descending significantly quickly. Some days, the altitude gain exceeds 1,000 m through steep hills, which are physically quite demanding as your body needs to adapt to the alpine environment in a short amount of time.

The trek to Langtang Valley is convenient even for beginners, yet it shouldn’t be taken lightly. A beforehand preparedness can be a great help in enjoying Langtang Trekking to the fullest.

If symptoms of mountain sickness are seen, go no further. Stay where you are and start to descend slowly.

To avoid acute mountain sickness, make sure to move steadily and allow a few buffer days to adapt to the mountainous climate and weather.

Distance

The Langtang Valley Trek is around 77 km/48 miles, including Kyanjin Ri Peak, which takes around 7-9 days from Kathmandu to reach the destination and return, which is customizable as per your interest.

One you must add a side trek to your day-to-day itinerary in the Langtang Valley trekking is the trek to Kyanjin Gompa from Tserko Ri, which is around an extra 8 km. From here, you can also head to experience one of the amazing ethnic Tamang settlements, whose trek is commonly known as the ‘Tamang Heritage Trail Trek’ for cultural delicacies.

Permits to Trek Langtang Valley

Like any other trekking route in Nepal, the Langtang Valley Trek trail also falls in the Langtang National Park region. So, to trek here, one must obtain a special trekking permit. The cost of the special permit to enter the trekking region is USD 30 (NPR 3,000) per person per entry, including VAT (value-added tax).

Here, you must be clear about the necessity of the TIM card before beginning any sort of adventurous activity in different trekking regions. Where Everest Region could be an exception for the Everest Region trekking zone, a local permit is required to be granted entrance.

The TIM card costs around USD 20 per person. Trekkers and adventurers can get both of the permit cards from the TIMS checkpost in Pokhara and the office of the Nepal Tourism Board in Kathmandu Ganeshthan, Maligaon, and Pokhara upon filling out the TIMS application form.

Specifically, to trek the Langtang Valley, you can grab them at the entry point of Dhunche as well.

When you are with any travel or trekking agency, you are free from any of these quite burdensome processes, as we will take care of each permit and other legal measures to make your holiday most enjoyable.

Compulsory Guide to Trek Langtang Valley

Starting on April 1, 2023, all international trekkers must have a licensed guide for hiking most routes in Nepal, including the Langtang trek.

Most of the guides are well-trained and fluent English speakers. If you are wondering about how much they charge you for a day, it is around USD 25 per day, including their meals, accommodation, salary, and insurance, which is pretty reasonable.

While the porter guide might charge you USD 20 for a day.

The best season to trek Langtang Valley

Each season in Nepal unfolds a new mystery about the country. As an example, we can take the trekking season in the Langtang Valley. The different trekking seasons in Langtang Valley compel a new aura and prettiness, always providing something unique for its travelers to look up to.

However, the time of fall (Sep–mid-December) and spring (March–May) remains the most pleasant season to embark on the Langtang Valley.

Autumn in Nepal lasts for three months: September, October, and November. The climate in this high season is calming and moderate, with unobstructed views of Himalayan vistas and surroundings.

The fresh blossom of vibrant rhododendrons in the evergreen forest looks awe-inspiring in the spring, with the swarming bees and butterflies moving here and there in search of nectar. The temperature on the trekking trails at this time is romantic, making it the most suitable time to explore any part of the Himalayas that you prefer.

Nevertheless, Langtang National Park is accessible even during the months of summer and winter. In the monsoon, although the Langtang Valley trekking trails get muddy, being well-equipped helps you make the most of your trek.

The winter is colder, with snow dumping from time to time at the higher elevations when the mountains look most dazzling and alluring. When packed thoughtfully with the right gear selection, it is the perfect season to witness the true Himalayan beauty.

Accommodation during the Langtang Valley Trek

The Langtang Valley Trek is a tea house trek. A tea house in Nepal is commonly known as Bhatti, a small hotel where one can eat homemade foods and get a place to sleep.

Due to the immensely growing popularity of Nepal in terms of trekking and other adventurous expeditions, more and more tea houses have opened from off-the-beaten trekking trails to bustling trekking routes for travelers. The popularity of the route is what determines the quality of these tea houses.

Since the Langtang region is easily accessible from Kathmandu, well-privileged tea houses are found in the Langtang Valley trek with flushable toilets, hot showers, and wireless internet connections at an extra charge.

Although one of the off-beaten trekking routes in Nepal, the Langtang Valley trek’s accommodation meets the need to enjoy a comfortable and quality stay.

Foods in the Langtang Valley Trek

Meals during the trek in Langtang Valley are as per the menu of the local tea house. You will get to savor the everyday delicious nutrients rich in carbs and protein essential to acclimatize thoroughly and keep the body energized.

The Dal-Bhaat, a bowl of lentil, bean, or pulse soup with a heap of rice, is a typical local dish to not skip at all. It is not only filling but also capable of providing the protein required for the trek to your body.

Seasonal veggies add more to the nourishment while you get to sample other menu items including Momo, Millet, Barley, Buckwheat, Corn Roti (Bread), Thukpa (Tibetan noodles with soup), and different bakery items with warm tea and coffee served.

Langtang Valley Trek Difficulty

The 10-day Langtang Valley trek is an easy, moderate-grade trekking trail in Nepal, which is considerably easier than many other trekking routes in Nepal in terms of steep climbs, slopes, and technical trails, with a 5–6-hour hike daily.

So, a good and healthy physique is a plus point while trekking the Langtang region, the homeland of many exclusive fauna, including Himalayan deer, red pandas, and snow leopards.

When you acclimatize properly, you are likely to make 100% of the trek, preventing acute mountain sickness (AMS), which can be fatal when not addressed at a time when you are trekking 5,000 m above sea level.

Insurance to trek Langtang Valley

When planning the trek in Langtang Valley or other various trekking regions in Nepal, getting travel insurance is a must, as you might encounter Himalayan unforeseen conditions at high altitudes.

The insurance must include an emergency helicopter evacuation, medical expenses, natural calamities, losses, and theft.

    Amazing, Stunning Scenery, Wonderful helpful Company!

    Sep 2023 • Couples

    We hiked the Langtang Valley with this company and I cannot speak more highly regarding our experience. Rana organised the best of everything to make our trip memorable. The Porter and Guide were both wonderful, friendly and helpful people. The scenery was spectacular and we didn't have to worry about anything.
    Rana (who is the owner of the Company) also helped us to organise a second trek which we wanted to do on our own and he was more than happy to help us for no reason other than being helpful. We we're so impressed by this as he had nothing to gain except being nice! Rana you are the best :-) Many many thanks from 2 very happy travellers

    rating

    This is a great trek from a professional trekking company. My thanks to Rana (owner) for all his advice and organisation for us. The trek itself is not overly long, for a total of 10 days including starting and finishing in Kathmandu. The walk up the Langtang Valley along the river is spectacular with breathtaking views of the mountains and walking through beautiful forests. We had a fantastic Guide - Purna Raj, who was knowledgeable, funny and safe. This is really important on a trek like this. My advice for those considering this trek: 1. Do it! 2. Wear good quality ankle length boots - no Runners - the track is very rough and often muddy. 3. Try to book a jeep transfer to and from Kathmandu to Syrabrubesi as the road there is very very rough in places. 4. Moderate level of fitness as there are some big days in terms of climbing and distance covered. All in all, 5 stars and highly recommended.
