Langtang Valley Trek is situated at the lap of Langtang mountain ranges and it is one of the best short-duration trek near the Kathmandu city. This hiking route has many highlands with pristine remote landscapes.
Among the sets of Langtang Region Trekking, the Langtang Valley Trek is one of the best options for adventure lovers and we can do the journey within a week from and to Kathmandu. Another significance of this journey is those who prefer to visit less touristic route. The villages and settlements are similar in Tibetan origin. Once it was the trade route to Tibet, therefore people around here are influenced by Tibetan culture and lifestyle.

Review of Trail: Why Trekking to Langtang Valley
In my personal view, Langtang region trekking is one of the best choices for those tourists. It is the perfect destination for those who want to see flora and fauna with great mountain views. Moreover, this region is the easiest trekking route to get there as it doesn’t require a flight or a long hours drive. It is just a 122 km drive from Kathmandu to the northern side.
The trip to Langtang can be observed via two aspects natural and cultural. Culturally this journey is perfect to explore the Tamang settlements in the Langtang Valley. Diverse ethnic people reside there around including Sherpa, Newars, and Chhetries with their rich and unique culture. Naturally, we can explore the magnificent view of the Langtang National Park, lavish hills, terraced fields, and beautiful gorges. Different species of endangered animals such as the Red Panda, wild deer, Himalayan Thar, and the national bird of our country- Danphe can be explored in this journey. With the inclusion of Kathmandu arrival day and departure day, you can complete the Langtang Valley trek in 9 days.
Nonetheless, Lantang is a less spoiled trekking zone in Nepal. It is not as crowded as Everest and Annapurna. All the treks of this region are located inside the Langtang National Park. Around 25% of this park is covered with forest. So it is the perfect trail for those who are looking for a less-traffic trek.
All in all, I recommend making a journey to Langtang for all once in your life.

Frequently Asked Questions
Since the Langtang Valley trekking goes from lower tropical land to alpine land, we should choose the best time. In fact, the best time to visit Langtang is the autumn and spring. Both seasons offer moderate temperatures with clear skies and stable weather. However, in the spring seasons, you’ll see the colorful forest (spring is rhododendron blooming time in Nepal). All in all, you’ll have great Langtang mountain views during those two seasons.
Typically, 7 days is enough for Langtang valley trekking from Kathmandu to Kathmandu. But if you want to extend it, you can combine it with another part or side trips. If you wish to do a whole Langtang circuit trek, it takes approximately 18 days. Langtang Circuit trek means Tamang Heritage Trail Trekking and Gosaikunda Pass including Langtang Valley trekking.
At 11.56 am on Saturday, 25 April 2015, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake shook Nepal. It created a huge landslide of rock and ice that slid off the 7,234m Langtang Lirung. The Langtang village was totally destroyed. The village was wiped out, and over approximately 200 people died, including around 40 foreign tourists and other Nepali people. Fortunately, the locals have shifted the accommodation place of Langtang Village. The place where it is now shifted is a safer and flatter landscape. Nowadays, some of them have already made good lodges, and some of them are still making them.
The Langtang Valley Hike is an easy to moderate difficulty hiking route. The highest accommodation place is 3800m, known as Kyajin Gompa. The hike to Kyanjin Ri is an easy trail, with a mostly flat and uphill ascent. To only reach Kyanjin Gompa, the Langtang Valley Hike is easy. But if you want to climb Kyanjin Ri (4600m) and Tserko Ri (4900m), it will be a moderate difficulty trek. From Kyanjin Ri and Tsrerki, we have astonishing views of the Langtang Ranges.
No. If you can walk 6 to 7 hours a day, you can explore Langtang Valley easily. Needless to say, if you have hiking experience, it will be an advantage for you.
Before the earthquake of 2015, teahouses in Langtang were very basic. Nowadays, most of the teahouses in the Langtang Valley Route beyond Lama Hotel are newly built and have clean rooms with attached toilets. They are small, family-run guesthouses that offer basic rooms and delicious meals. Teahouses are typically located in villages and settlements along the trail.
Everywhere in Langtang trekking area, you can get both vegetarian/vegan and non-vegetarian food items. The hotels in Langtang have menus, so you can choose what you want to eat. Vegetarian food is easily available at all teahouses in this route.
Sure, you will get Mineral Water from Syabrubesi to Kyanjin Gompa. This means you will get Safe Drinking Water everywhere on the Langtang trek. Mineral water at the beginning of the trek costs Rs 100, and it costs NRP 250 in high elevations such as Kyanjin Gumpa.
If you go with a porter, you can easily walk and photograph during your journey to Lantang, making your trip more comfortable.
Even though teahouses provide you with one or two blankets (depending on the season and availability), it can be freezing cold beyond Lama Hotel. It can be difficult to get enough blankets during the trekking season, so I recommend bringing your own sleeping bag to Langtang.
It is very easy to visit Langtang Valley and return to Kathmandu. If you are in Thamel or any part of Kathmandu, you can either take a local bus to Syabrubesi from New Buspark or hire a private jeep. The first local bus leaves at 6:30am, the second one at 7:30am, and the last one at 10am. However, if you prefer a more comfortable journey to Syabrubesi, you can hire a private jeep. You can return from Syabrubesi to Kathmandu by bus or jeep, just like from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi.
LANGTANG VALLEY TREKKING REVIEWS
Thank you Mr Jayaram and Mr Nabaraj for your kind assistance for our langtang trek. Thank you for your warm hospitality. We enjoy very much.
Langtang Hike in February
I contacted Jayaram for Langtang Trek, from BASE CAMP HIKE. He helped me to make a private hike to Langtang. I did Langtang Hiking in mid-February and it was unforgettable. The trail was covered by snow from Godatabela and beyond part is very cold. But the scenery was magical. Especially from view, Tserkuri was eye-catching.
Regarding trip management, It was perfectly organized. How everything was so organized, in detail. I didn’t have to worry about anything.
Navaraj was my guide and he was professional and friendly. It was amazing to learn from his experience(not only about the mountains but also about Nepali culture).
I would definitely recommend trekking with Base Camp Hike and Nabaraj. I will come to Everest Base Camp Trekking soon and go with them.
Helpful Team, Wonderful Langtang Trek
Jayaram, Nabaraj, Dipendre and all the guys in Base Camp Hike have solutions for everything. We got very fast response from Jayaram while we were corresponding via email.
Mid-March 2022, We had a wonderful trek to Langtang area and it was top organized. Our guide Ram was just perfect, always smiling and helping with everything, even with learning some Nepali on the way.
Thank all of you and see you next time!!
Best female trekking guide!
I did Langtang trek in 2019 and that was memorable. Before the trek, I thought a lot regarding trip mode. At last, I decided to go trekking with a female guide and booked with Base Camp Hike. Jayaram(Founder of Base Camp Hike) arranged everything perfectly. I got Binita as my travel companion. She was very humble and professional. If you are like me and prefer to travel with a female guide, look no further. Go with Base Camp Hike.
Response from Base Camp Hike
Thank you so much for your feedback.
Memorable 7 days Langtang Valley trip
In September 2019, we went Hiking to Langtang with Base Camp Hike. It was memorable hiking. Because we got everything so perfectly.
We contacted this agency because we had an excellent experience of their services from previous treks(Poon Hill Trek). The trip was perfectly organized and we enjoyed every minute of it. We were lucky with good weather. On this trek, the guide was Som Shrestha and Porter was Saroj. Guide Som is excellent, knowledgeable, friendly, and has a good sense of humor. I suggest to all to book any trekking in Nepal with Base Camp Hike.
