The Langtang Valley sits within the first national park designated in Nepal – the Langtang National Park. The valley offers some of the most spectacular mountain trekking and scenery near to Kathmandu. Just a half-day drive north from Kathmandu brings you to the trekking village of Shabrubeshi and the entrance to the valley and National Park.

While trekking locations such as Mount Everest and Annapurna tend to capture the attention of international visitors, and certainly the bulk of trekker numbers, districts such as Langtang offer a fantastic Himalayan trekking and mountain scenery experience without the impact of high volume trekking groups. This makes the Langtang Valley one of those “best kept secret” locations that only some get to experience.

The Langtang Valley is just a short drive north of Kathmandu and so provides an opportunity for very short duration treks to still reach high into the heart of the Himalaya Mountain peaks that run along the border between Nepal and Tibet. The valley itself is a classic “glaciated valley” from the era of the last ice-age. This makes trekking along the valley floor very easy. The north eastern, or upper end, of the main valley tapers to small active glaciers grinding their way down the high mountain slopes and tributary valleys. This makes the Langtang Valley such a compact, diverse and interesting place to trek. In just a few days traverse the lower Himalayan foothills and reach active glaciers in the high Himalaya. There are so many opportunities for side treks, circuit treks, high mountain pass traverses and peak climbing all within the beautiful Langtang Valley. This trek pursues one of these opportunities and reaches the spectacular high point of Tsergo Ri (5,150m).

This region was affected by the April 2015 earthquake and parts of the original trekking trail still remain blocked by landslide material. However rebuilding and trail clearing by the local people has been rapid and extensive and the valley is now open once again for trekking. The first day of trekking now takes a modified route along the northern valley wall well above the landslide affected areas. This actually provides an opportunity for fantastic views along the valley and across the magnificent Himalaya peaks of the southern Langtang National Park, particularly the many 5,700m+ peaks near Naya Kanga (5,844m) and Pangen Dopku (5,930m).

The trek then continues up the Langtang Valley to the monastery of Kyanjin Gompa. From here it is possible to climb even higher on a day excursion to vantage points such as Tsergo Ri (5,150m) that offer stunning Himalaya Mountain and valley scenery. This is one of the most scenically rewarding treks in Nepal. You have the opportunity to marvel at countless snow-capped Himalayan summits close at hand and also challenge yourself to reach the heart-pounding altitude of 5,150m or 16,900 feet.

  • Day 2
    Day 2 Jan 2018 Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1,460m/6hrs) Overnight in Trekking lodge (BLD)

    The drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi takes about eight hours. You head out of Kathmandu through the highway to Pokhara however you will soon exit the highway and head north along the main valley road. The road then heads up into the Himalaya foothills and winds its way through many valleys to reach the busy little town of Dhunche. Here your guide will meet the National Park entrance checkpoint and have your permits checked and stamped to proceed further north into the Langtang National Park. As you head further north some of the high ridges you cross will provided your first glimpses of snow-clad Himalayan peaks. After another descends down the valley side, you will arrive at Syabrubesi, a busy trading and trekking town. There are many trekking lodges here, serving trekkers heading towards the Langtang region. There are also a range of small shops where you may purchase some last-minute items for your trek. You will be spending rest of the night in one of those lodges. But make sure you get to bed early and get plenty of restful sleep – tomorrow the adventure begins.

  • Day 3
    Day 3 Jan 2018 Shabrubeshi to Rimche (2,500m/6 hrs) Overnight in Trekking lodge (BLD)

    The first part of today’s rather long walk is the hardest – so take your time on the ascent and the day will get easier. You start by crossing the small bridge just north of Shabrubeshi and the trail immediately starts ascending. While there is a 4WD road up to Khangjin your guide will probably take you up the traditional walking trail. The trail is much steeper than the road but this is the traditional trekking route used by local people and traders for centuries. It will probably take about two or three hours to reach Khangjin and then it is time for a short break and perhaps a cup of local tea. You are now high above the river valley and you have your first views to snow-capped peaks. The trail then winds high along the valley wall as you head east into the Langtang Valley and head for Sherapagaon. The walking is much easier now as the ascent grade is much gentler. After some late lunch in Sherapagaon you continue your gentle ascent to Rimche. As you proceed you will find you are no longer high on the valley side but now down in the valley floor. By the time you reach Rimche late in the afternoon you will have gained about 1,100m in altitude. Time for a rest!

  • Day 4
    Day 4 Jan 2018 Rimche to Mundu (3,450m/7hrs) Overnight in Trekking lodge (BLD)

    From Rimche you will follow the original valley-floor trekking trail up the Langtang Valley. Damage to bridges and the trekking trail have all been pretty much repaired and so the walking on this and subsequent days will be much easier than yesterday. The trail takes you through rhododendron and pine forest for around three hours to reach Ghoda Tabela where you will stop for lunch. The trail then continues on and reaches the site of Langtang Village, however this may be a very sombre and perhaps distressing sight as the village was entirely destroyed by a massive landslide caused by the 2015 earthquake. Your guide will say a prayer for all those that perished and you may also wish to add your prayers and thoughts. The trek will then continue on the short distance to the little village of Mundu. You are now in the middle of the glorious Langtang Valley and likely feel humbled by the size and power of the mountains towering above you on both sides of the valley. This is a spectacular location.

  • Day 5
    Day 5 Jan 2018 Mundu to Kyanjin Gompa (3,817m/3hrs) Overnight in Trekking lodge (BLD)

    Today is easy walking again as you head towards the top of the valley. There is plenty of time to take it easy and a slow pace will also help you acclimatise and reduce the risk of altitude sickness symptoms. Take some time to enjoy views of Mount Ganchempo and Mount Langtang Lirung high above you. You may also like to pay a visit to the Yak Cheese Factory and learn that the milk for the cheese comes from the Nak and not the Yak – your guide will have fun explaining to you. By early afternoon you will reach the extensive complex of the Kyanjin Gompa Monastery. Find a place to sit outside in the sun and just soak up the stunning scenery.

  • Day 6
    Day 6 Jan 2018 climb Tserko Ri (4984m/5 hrs) and back to kyanjing . Overnight in Trekking lodge (BLD)

    Today we climb the tserko ri (4984 meters) from where you will view the stunning 360 degree panoramic view of the Himalayan mountains.Truly spectacular!  The climb starts somewhat straight forward but as we push up the route it gets more difficult as it requires you to climb over a number of boulders and rocks. However taking time and enjoying will make it a lot easier. The top of tserko ri  is really pleasant, with a lot of space to sit around and glance the beauty of nature. Finally we trace ouir way back to kyanjin and recall the unforgettable moments you had.

  • Day 7
    Day 7 Jan 2018 Day trip to Langsishakharka (4159m/5 hrs) and back to kyanjin Overnight in Trekking lodge (BLD)

    This is a good long walk that takes you all the way up the valley to where the Salbachum, Lanshisha, and Langtang glacial moraines all converge. To get there you just continue on the trail heading east out of Kyanjin Gompa. You'll follow the valley past the turn off to Tsergo Ri and past the air field. During the walk you only gain about one thousand feet over five or so miles. Along the way you get some great views of the nearby peaks including Dorje Lakpa, and eventually Shisha Pangma, the only 8,000 meter peak in Tibet.

  • Day 8
    Day 8 Jan 2018 Kyanjin to Kathmandu by Helicopter(1,300m) Overnight in Hotel (BLD)

    Finally! we will be departing from kyanjin airfield via helicopter back to kathmandu. Once again enjoying the bird’s eye view of the region and capturing it into your heart.  
     

  • Day 9
    Day 9 Jan 2018 Flight to Home (BLD)

    The Good Bye! We will collect you from your hotel lobby in plenty of time to take you to the airport to check-in for your flight. We wish you well for your journey home and hope you will return to Nepal soon to explore another region of our amazing little country.
