Langtang Valley Trekking


Langtang is a region in Nepal to the north of Kathmandu and bordering Tibet. The valley is dominated by Langtang Lirung [7246m], the highest peak in the area. Trekking takes you through the forests of the Langtang valley to the alpine meadows and yak pastures around Kyangjin. After an ascent of Kyangjin Ri, from where the 360 degree mountain views are truly spectacular, we retrace our route back down the valley to Syabru Bensi and then drive back to Kathmandu.
This Langtang trek towards the base of Langtang Himal, north of Kathmandu valley, offers the shortest approach to snowy mountains from Kathmandu. The Langtang trek starts from SyabruBesi after 6-7 hrs drive from Kathmandu. Following a trail upstream Bhote Kosi river through ethnic Tamang villages, lush green forests and wide spread Kyangin valley surrounded by snowy peaks from all fours sides, takes you up to Kyangin at 3800 meter, where you can have a opportunity to ascend Kyangjin Ri [4350m.], from where the 360 degree mountain views are truly spectacular. After an ascent of Kyangjin Ri, we retrace our route back down the valley to Syabru Besi and then drive back to Kathmandu.
This trek can be done by camping which blends well with the wilderness or we can also do the trip teahouse style which is also good. The local inhabitants hereabouts are few & the area offers some genuine adventure hiking where the accommodation is simple as can expect in these type of mountainous regions & the food is just fine but the time we spend here is as good as being on cloud 7. we bunk out on organic farmlands, get to see red pandas & numerous bird species & we enjoy a fairytale outing that would be good for noting down in our diaries for stories to be told to the generations to come about our experiences & great moments in one of the most stunningly naturally lovely places on planet earth.
A fully supported camping based trek to the sacred lakes of Gosainkunda in the Helambu region. Although only a day’s drive from Kathmandu, this region is relatively isolated and predominantly inhabited by the Tamangs and Helambu Sherpas who originated in Tibet just to the north. A highlight of our trek is a visit to Kyanjing Gompa before we cross to Gosainkunda. A trek in this region offers the opportunity to view traditional village life amid a picturesque alpine wilderness and affords brilliant views of the mighty peaks of Langtang (7234m) and Ganesh (7446m) as well as a sprawl of endless 6000m+ summits. Although not a well known region of the Himalaya, a trek in the Langtang offers stunning views as well as cultural interaction, and is a good option for those short on time.

Detailed Itinerary

Day 01 Kathmandu to Syabru Besi [2000m]
An early departure for the 7 hour drive to our starting point at the foot of the Langtang Valley. The road takes a spectacular route, climbing high over the ridges to escape the Kathmandu Valley and providing us with a superb panorama of the Himalaya, including the Annapurnas, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and the peaks of the Langtang region that we will soon become better acquainted with.

Day 02 Syabru Besi to Lama hotel [2748M]
The trail initially crosses the Bhote Kosi, flowing down from Tibet, literally a few kilometres away, and then gradually climbs up through the sub-tropical forests, teeming with bird-life, to join the trail from Syabru. We then follow the river, climbing through uninhabited forest of oak and rhododendron and maybe catching a glimpse of langur monkeys roaming through the trees. We climb along a steep trail to our camp in the forest.

Day 03 Lama hotel to Lantang village [3500M]
As we 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 we can visit shortly before arriving at the village of Langtang, the headquarters of the Langtang National Park. The houses of Langtang and its neighbouring villages are of the flat-roofed Tibetan style, surrounded by stone walls enclosing fields of buckwheat, potatoes, wheat, turnips and barley.

Day 04 Trek Langtang village to Kyagjin [3800M]
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. We should arrive at Kyangjin by lunch time allowing time to acclimatise and explore the area. It is a dramatic setting, with snow covered peaks surrounding us in all directions.

Day 05 Rest day in Kyangjin
A day to rest and explore the area. We can visit the monastery and the cheese factory, walk up the moraine to see the spectacular ice faces and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung or ascend Kyangjin Ri [4350m], directly behind the village, for a breath-taking panorama of the Langtang peaks.

Day 06 Kyangjin to Lama hotel [2784M]
From Kyangjin we retrace our route, following the Langtang Khola to Langtang village and on to Ghora Tabela. After lunch we continue the steep descent to Lama Hotel.

Day 07 Lama hotel to Syabru Besi [2000m]
We continue retracing our steps to Syabru Besi.

Day 08 Drive to Kathmandu
Today we conclude the trip with a bus journey back to Kathmandu.
