The Langtang Valley Trek, known as the valley of glaciers trek, is an exciting trekking area. Langtang valley is the nearest Himalayan region from Kathmandu valley. It is the closest place where you could get the massive snowcapped peaks and beautiful glaciers. People living in the highlands of the Langtang region are obviously Nepalese but being the descendant of the Tibetan origin.

It is popular trekking regions for those who wish a short trek from Kathmandu into the Himalayas influenced by Tibetan lifestyle and culture. This valley is located 19 miles north of Kathmandu. Mt. Langtang Lirung (7246m) dominates the whole valley which offers pine forest, bamboo forests, rhododendron, snow-capped peaks and many more.

The Langtang Valley Trek is a popular trek in Nepal that takes you through the Langtang National Park, a protected area in the Himalayas. The trek follows a route through the Langtang Lirung Glacier and passes through a variety of landscapes, including forests, meadows, and high mountain passes. Langtang trek is known for its stunning views of the Langtang Lirung Glacier and the Langtang Lirung peak, as well as its cultural diversity, as it passes through several traditional Tamang villages.

About Langtang Valley Trek

It takes around 8 hours drive from Kathmandu to reach the starting point of trekking i.e. Syabru Bensi through Dhunche. We head upward to Lama Hotel and Langtang village until we arrive at the next famous Kanyanjing Gompa (3740m). During the part of the trek, you will be walking through Langtang National Park. Here you can see varieties of flora and fauna. Among them, the monkeys, musk deer, Pika and the national bird of Nepal called Danphe are common. Along the way, trekkers can enjoy the local culture and hospitality of the Tamang people, who are the indigenous residents of the region.

After an overnight stay in Gompa, we will visit the Yala yak cheese factory and have a glorious view of the Glaciers, which is the gateway to Tibet. There are some huts in Langsisa which is within one day’s walk from Kyangjin Gompa. The trek can be done in about a week, but many people choose to spend more time in the region to allow for more exploration and acclimatization.

Overall, the Langtang Valley Trek is a challenging but rewarding trek that offers a unique combination of natural beauty, cultural immersion, and high-altitude adventure.

Best Season to visit Langtang Valley

The best time to do the Langtang Valley Trek is from September to November and from March to May, when the weather is generally clear and dry. It is possible to do the trek at other times of the year, but the weather can be more unpredictable, and some trails may be inaccessible due to snow. When one welcomes Nepal’s monsoon season, the already captivating landscapes become even more mystical.

    Detailed Itinerary

    You will be met by our airport representative and transferred to the hotel by our private tourist vehicle. You have the free evening and overnight at the hotel.

    You’ll start the day boarding a bus to Syabru Bensi, the traditional gateway to Langtang and Gosaikunda. It’s a lengthy drive (six and a half hours, approximately), but there’s tons of gorgeous scenery to drink in as you watch the towns of Trisuli Bazaar and Dhunche speed by. The snow-capped peaks of Annapurna II, Manasalu, and Ganesh Himal are visible in the distance as you cross Kakani, eventually giving way to the agricultural geography of hillocks, rivers, and small villages. You’ll know the destination is close when you begin to see the stone houses of Syabru Bensi, a pretty village popular with trekkers.


    Our first-day trekking kicks off with a hike along the path of the Langtang River, which we’ll follow over the next several days until the valley comes to a head. We then ford the river via a suspension bridge, stretching our legs as the trail ascends in the direction of Paira Lodge. Up is the direction of the afternoon as we climb towards Rimche, after which the village of Lama Hotel is only 40 minutes away. The hike today brings us through a scenic wilderness, in which you’ll be treated to the sight of native wildlife like red pandas, monkeys, and Himalayan black bears.

    We start the day going uphill, leaving the Lama Hotel behind us as we ascend through a beautiful forest of oak, maple, rhododendron, and hemlock. Gradually, we attain Ghora Tabela, catching tantalizing glimpses through the trees of Mt. Langtang Lirung the whole time. We then follow the Langtang Khola, climbing steadily until we reach today’s destination. Langtang, a notable Tamang village, is located in a gorgeous, remote valley. Houses of stone and wood are scattered among grazing pastures for the yak.

    Trekking past Langtang officially moves us above the tree line, allowing you the opportunity to experience a more typically-Himalayan landscape, one rife with wiry grass, juniper, and shrubs. As our trail ascends we’ll pass Sindum and Yamphu, and then cross the Laja Khola. Prepare for one of the most dramatic moments of our journey as we scale a glacial moraine for epic views of the Kyanjin Gompa and icefall flowing from Langtang Lirung. Snap some pictures, and then square your shoulders for just a bit more walking to gain Kyanjin Gompa, the home of a well-known Buddhist monastery (for which it is named!). We’ll visit the gompa itself after lunch, and also stop in on a yak-cheese manufacturing plant. If you’ve any energy left, join us for a hike to the flag-topped peak of Kyanjin Ri, located just north of Kyanjin Gompa.

    We’ll be up before dawn (5:30) and eating a quick breakfast, all the better to get started on our climb to the top of Chorka Ri Ri. The early wake-up call will be forgiven as the indescribable splendor of a Langtang Himalayan sunrise plays out before your eyes. Enjoy phenomenal panoramas of Langtang Lirung, Langshisa Ri, Gyanghempo, Ganjala, and Naya Kang. Sweeping views of the Langtang valley and glacial icefalls can also be seen here. Let the glory of nature sweep you off your feet, then return to Earth for the hike back to Kyanjin Gompa.

    The beauty that drew us to Langtang follows us as we begin our trek back in the direction of home. Keep your eyes open for animal life, and do take time to appreciate the marvelous loveliness and diversity of the forests’ flora.

    We’re retracing the steps of our ascent today, as we wend our way downhill from Lama Hotel towards Syabru Bensi. We descend until we get to Paira Lodge, and then have to climb through the forest on the way to the village of Syabru. The walking is easier, and the views are splendid.

    We return the way we came, driving back to the capital by shared jeep or bus. It’s approximately a seven-hour drive back, but that still leaves ample time to enjoy your last evening in Nepal! Partake of some sightseeing, explore the city’s multiple UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and enjoy some delightful local dishes for dinner in town.

    You will be transferred to the international airport for your final departure by our airport representative. It’s our great pleasure to organize your tour and thanks for joining the team of Mountain Treks Nepal Pvt. Ltd.
