Langtang Valley Trek


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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Today, you will depart Nepal with beautiful memories and experiences. 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.

9. What are tips to follow to acclimatize to the altitude?

Acclimatization basically means enabling your body to adapt to the altitude, heat, cold, air, etc. In the mountains, this becomes very important to ensure a comfortable trekking experience. The basic 5 things to do in order to acclimatize well are – 1. Keep your hydration levels high. One needs to consume minimum 4 litres of water on a daily basis. 2. Keep your appetite going well. Loss of appetite is one of the first signs of being affected by AMS. Keeping a decent appetite from day 1 is important and it will also give your body the required nutrition. 3. Sleep – It is of utmost importance that your body is well rested. Minimum 7-9 hours of sleep is recommended to rest, recover and recharge yourself for the next day. 4. Protecting your eyes – Wearing sunglasses in the mountains is a must. The sun glares are much stronger in the high altitudes than our cities, and can often lead to headaches which can stay for very long. Hence, it is advisable to keep your sunglasses on whenever needed. 5. Walk and talk pace – your pace of walking should be such that you should be able to talk. Especially when gaining altitude, it is advisable to walk slower as you gain altitude. Following the above basic rules will increase your chances of acclimatization.

10. What medicines should I carry?

Our team usually carries a full fledge medical kit which include generic medicines ranging from headache, indigestion, allergies, anti-inflammatory, to high altitude medicines like Diamox etc. from oxy meters, thermometers, bandages, water purification drops But apart from that in case there are specific medicines that work for you or your doctor has prescribed, you should carry those. The list of medicines you can carry has also been highlighted in the ‘Things to carry’ tab on our website.

11. Is a medical certificate/assessment needed for the trek?

Yes. A medical certificate is compulsory for this trek. It is important that you have yourself assessed by a qualified doctor before the trek. The physical examination conducted by the doctor will include a check of your blood pressure, pulse, recording your blood group, mentioning any previous injuries/accidents or allergies, etc. This assessment will be beneficial not only for the trekker but also the team in case if any medical situation arises. The format of the certificate will be shared by our team to all the participants and needs to be submitted as per the deadlines mentioned by a representative from Adventure Pulse.

12. Will I be able to communicate with my family ?

There are multiple options to be in touch with your friends and family while on the trek. You can activate international roaming on your phone or even buy a local sim card in Nepal. NTC sim card usually works better in the region. However, the network is not consistent and varies from place to place, and won't be as strong as you gain altitude. Wifi option will be available in the tea houses till Kyanjin. Different tea houses charge different amounts for purchase of wifi usually ranging anywhere between 200-400 nepali rupees for a 24 hour cycle.

We recommend the following schedule to the participants
  1. WEEK ONE: Participants should develop a habit of being able to get up in the morning and run / brisk walk for a minimum of 3-4 Km at least 3-4 days a week. This would represent at least 20-25 minutes of cardio exercise. Though difficult at first, keep at it. You can stop and take breaks as well. During the day, you should get into the habit of avoiding elevators and taking the steps. You should be able to climb at least 4/5 flights of steps daily. (Avoid going down steps too fast as this could result in some knee injuries). If you Don’t enjoy running and are into some other sport like cycling or swimming, spend about 45 mins cycling or about 600 – 800 mts of swimming for at least 4 days a week .
  2. WEEK TWO: Assuming you have successfully survived week one and are consistent with your exercise, you can take up the pace a notch.
