“Incredible mountain views of the Langtang Himalayas, valley and across to Tibet from Kyanjin Ri”


Langtang valley trek is one of the most popular and beautiful trekking destination that ranks third in terms of trekking popularity in Nepal. It is only about 80 km north from the capital city, Kathmandu.  A 7 to 8 hour jeep ride takes us to Syabrubesi, the gateway to The Langtang Valley Trek.  The trek comprises a wide range of climate regions, from tropical to alpine, with an overall altitude fluctuation of 1,550 m to 3,870 m. Sipping a cup of coffee in the lap of the Himalayas at 3870 meters surrounded by stunning panoramic landscapes, is just one of the memories to look forward to.

The Langtang Trek is a moderate level trek suitable for novice and time-limited travelers seeking for an amazing trekking experience in short time period. The monasteries, mani walls, and chortens are evidence of the Buddhist influence in this tranquil area. This trip offers an opportunity to interact with people and an insight into Tamang culture. The Tamang community welcomes you through their elegant traditional culture to experience a taste of Nepali hospitality. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by this trek as you traverse through forests and take in the breathtaking vistas of mountains, valleys, and glaciers. There are options for daytrips, such as stroll to Tserko Ri or Kyanjin Ri. These viewpoints offer the best panoramic view of the Langtang mountain range covered with snow.

This trek provides you with adventure while allowing you to experience actual wilderness in the magnificent Langtang National Park. The park is home to the wildlife such as elusive Red Panda and Snow Leopard, Himalayan Black Bears, Himalayan Tahr, gorals, serows, rhesus monkeys, musk deer, and more than 250 species of birds. The trekking trail traverse through the dense forest of alders, bamboos, oaks, rhododendrons (during spring), pines, juniper, and alpine shrubs. The Nepalese larch is the only deciduous conifer found in this region and few places elsewhere.

The Langtang Valley Trek can be combined with Tamang Heritage Trek, Gosainkunda Trek and Helambu Trek that can be completed in around two weeks of time.

Detailed Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu, Nepal

Kathmandu (1,300m /4,265 ft)

After flying through the beautiful scenic views of mountains, varied terrains and plains, you will arrive in the capital city of Kathmandu. Ensuring your landing, our Team will receive you at the Tribhuwan International Airport and transfer you to the hotel in Thamel. Once you have checked into the hotel, a briefing will be provided for the preparation of trek in the following days, and answer your questions and queries if any.

There is a lot to do and see in Thamel. If you have an early arrival, after refreshment, you can visit our office nearby to meet our team members, stroll around the narrow lively streets of Thamel and enjoy your first meal in a variety of restaurants offering different cuisines with live music.

Day 2: Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi

Kathmandu (1,300m /4,265 ft) Syafru Besi: (1,450m/ 4,757 ft)

After an early morning breakfast, we take a 7- 8-hour jeep drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. We drive towards north of Kathmandu on the mountainous highway through the Bhote Koshi River, Langtang River, alder and bamboo forest. During the journey, we get glimpses of stunning views of waterfalls, gorges, terrace fields, small villages and snow-capped mountains like Mt. Annapuran II (7,937m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163), Ganesh Himal (7,422) and other peaks.    

Day 3: Trek from Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel

Syafru Besi: (1,450m/ 4,757 ft) Bamboo: (2,200m/ 7,217 ft) Lama Hotel: (2,480m/ 8,136 ft)

From Syabrubesi, we start our trek along the BhoteKoshi and Langtang Rivers, passing through lush jungles, terraced fields, and small villages full of bamboo and birch trees. You might spot the red panda, musk deer and rhesus monkeys on the path. After some gentle climb, we reach Rimche (2,400m/7,874ft), and finally arrive at our final stop for the day, the Lama Hotel.

Day 4: Trek from Lama Hotel to Langtang village

Lama Hotel: (2,480m/ 8,136 ft) Langtang Village: (3,430m/ 11,253 ft)

We start our trek after breakfast. We will trek alongside the Langtang River and ascend through a dense forest of oak, maple and rhododendron. As we walk on, we start seeing snow-capped mountains if the weather is favorable. We will have a beautiful occasional sight of Langtang Lirung (7,245m) between the trees along the route. The narrow river valley eventually widens after reaching Ghoda Tabela (3,030m) and the mountains appear on either side of the valley. Once there was Tibetan resettlement project here, but it has a New Army Post with a few lodges.

The trail continues, passing by a few temporary sheds inhabited by herders who bring their yaks to graze in the high pastures in summer and descend during winter. If you have never seen yaks before, you will probably be seeing them for the first time here. We eventually arrived at Chyamki Village (3230m), which had ancient mani walls, chortens, and prayer flags.

The trail then traverses through the landside area, a sad reminder of 2015 earthquake, where the old Langtang village once was. After crossing the huge rock field area of landside, we reached the New Langtang village, where we spend the night.

Day 5: Trek from Langtang village to Kyanjin Gomba

Langtang Village: (3,430m/ 11,253 ft) Kyan Jin Gompa: (3,870m/ 12,696 ft)

Today will be a short and easy trek.  Throughout the journey, we pass by mani walls carved with Buddhist mantras, on the trail past small villages, yaks’ pastures and grasslands. After walking for about half an hour we reach Mundu village with some typical old houses which remind us of what all the villages once looked like in this valley.   The trail ascends gradually from Mundu as the valley widens and the views expand while passing through yak pastures. We can feel the thin air as we ascend to higher altitudes. We trek slowly because we will be gaining elevation, allowing our bodies to acclimatize. The trail arrives at the Kyangjin Gomba after crossing a number of minor streams and moraines. There is an old monastery nearby, as well as a cheese factory run by the government. Once you reach, we strongly recommend spending the rest of the day strolling around and exploring the area.

Day 6: Exploration Day at Kyanjin Gomba

Kyan Jin Gompa: (3,870m/ 12,696 ft)

Today is our exploration day around Kyanjin Gomba. There won’t be any long and tedious treks today; just a short hike around the area. Today, we hike to Kyanjin Ri (4,773m), a lower peak than Tsergo Ri (4,985m), which can be challenging for beginners. Hike to Tsergo-Ri, if you’re looking for more adventure. Both of these day hike locations provide breathtaking mountain ranges and glaciers. Langshisa Kharka is another day hiking destination from Kyanjin Gompa. We’ll head back to Kyanjin Gompa for the evening as the sun sets.

Day 7: Trek from Kyanjin Goma to Lama Hotel

Kyan Jin Gompa: (3,870m/ 12,696 ft) Langtang Valley: (3,430m/ 11,253 ft) Lama Hotel: (2,480m/ 8,136 ft)

As we depart Kyangjin Gompa, we’ll take one last look at the majestic mountains and descend towards Lama Hotel. We will have a lunchbreak at Ghoda Tabela and continue on to Lama Hotel, where we will spend the night.

Day 8: Trek from Lama Hotel to Syabrubesi

Lama Hotel: (2,480m/ 8,136 ft) Syafru Besi: (1,450m/ 4,757 ft)

We walk down to Syabrubesi for about five hours after breakfast. We descend through birch and bamboo forests, cross the Langtang and Bhote Koshi rivers, and take in the breathtaking scenery to get to Syabrubesi. This concludes our trekking journey. We’ll be driving back to Kathmandu the next day.

Day 9: Drive back to Kathmandu

Syafru Besi: (1,450m/ 4,757 ft) Kathmandu (1,300m /4,265 ft)

Today, after breakfast we will drive from Syabrubesi to Kathmandu, which will take about 7 to 8 hours.

When you arrive in Kathmandu, check-in in the previous hotel at Thamel. You can take a stroll for beverages and shopping in the evening. It’s a fantastic idea to spend your evening in Kathmandu wandering around Thamel and the surrounding areas for shopping and independently exploring the twisting streets of this tourist hotspot. A few restaurants that serve delicious cuisine and hot coffee are located along the route, with good live music, and service.

Day 10: Final Departure

Kathmandu (1,300m /4,265 ft)

Our team will wish you farewell and transport you to the International Airport according to your flight schedule for your flight home. It’s good to be at the airport at least 2 hours before your departure.  Adventure Pulse hopes you have a wonderful time and look forward to facilitating many more incredible adventures in Nepal.


Train Yourself

Good physical condition is required to trek in Nepal’s high altitude. Without some pre-trek training or a good level of basic fitness, it can be hard. We suggest running, walking, hiking on the hill, climbing stairs rather than elevators to prepare for the trek. Include swimming, rowing, biking in your daily base training.

Basic experience and strength required for Trekking

  • One should be able to hike for 6-7 hours a day.
  • One should be able to carry 4-5 kg themselves on a backpack for preparation.
  • We suggest you walk daily for about 2/3 miles to facilitate your preparation.  In addition, if you carry a backpack with some load on your back for 1 to 2 months, it will prepare you well and make your climbing much easier. Or alternatively use a treadmill for everyday running and walking.
  • If you have an uphill location/mountain then once a week you should go hiking with a loaded bag pack on your back. If you do not have mountains and high hills then use stairs to go up/down than the elevator.
  • Regular swimming, biking, rowing is also a good way to maintain your physical strength.

Additional Information:

  • We will meet you at the airport and pick you up:

We organized Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) airport pick up and drops as part of our service. Upon your arrival, you are welcomed and greeted at the arrival gate (Holding the company pamphlet- Adventure Pulse) by our representative member from a company, then transfer to your hotel in Kathmandu. For departure transfer, we will come to pick you up at your hotel in Kathmandu and take you to the airport for your international flight.

  • Food and accommodation in the mountains would be rechecked for additional hygiene.
  • The meals during the trek:

Our trek takes us to high altitudes near the world’s highest point, which means your body will need enough starch, protein, and nutrition, as food is the body’s fuel for hiking on such massive Himalayan trails. The food on this trek is very convenient, but not as convenient as it is in cities.

There will be Breakfasts, Lunch, Dinners, Tea & coffee will be provided in the trek with a large variety to choose from.  We go by the logic of One order per meal per person.  Some of the popular menu items are: –

Breakfasts – (Oatmeal, Corn Flakes, French toast with Jam, Butter, Cheese, and Honey Tibetan bread or Chapati Local tsampa porridge, Hashed brown eggs, Varieties of eggs (Omelets) Pancakes Muesli Breads Fruits and Vegetables Hot drinks like varieties of teas and coffees Hot chocolates, etc)

Lunch – (Dhal, Bhat & Tarkari (Dal Bhat power 24 hours) Tibetan Bread Various Soups items Sherpa Stew Steaks Sandwiches Momo (dumplings) Macaroni dishes Tenduk Spaghetti Noodles Thukpa Pasta Vegetable Curry Potatoes Items Vegetable and salad Pizza (Tomato, Mushroom, Mixed) Snakes (Papad, Prawn) Desserts items (Rice Pudding, Apple pie), etc)

The best items from the lodge’s menu are fresh, hygienic, delicious, and nutritious. Almost everywhere on the menu, there is a mix of typical local, Asian, and western cuisine, but as we get closer, the menu list will be shortened. We highly recommend liquids green tea, lemon tea, hot lemon, ginger tea, and garlic soup, etc. at high altitude and also the fresh vegetable items for health benefit.

Most groups will give the trips the last day of the trek.

  • The trekking trail to the Langtang gets filthy during Monsoon.
