The Langtang Valley trekking route situates 51 kilometers north of Kathmandu, in the Langtang National Park.  Relatively, it is, unlike Annapurna and Everest Base Camp, a less busy trail. However, hiking in the Langtang valley will reward you with a life-changing experience.

Nature fascinates the entire Langtang region with spectacular views of high mountains. The snow-capped mountains  Dorje Lakpa,  Changbu, Yansa Tsenji, Kyung Ri, Dogpache,  Langshisha Ri,  Langtang Lirung     Gangchenpo,  Morimoto, and Yala Peak, stands as the border between Tibet and Nepal frontier.

In terms of Flora and Fauna, the National park is a treasure of nature. A wide range of vegetation, subtropical to Alpine, covers as per elevation. It is a habitat for wildlife; sometimes, we may have a glimpse of them. According to the national park’s data, over 300 different species of birds, including migrants and locals, are found.

The tea house-lodges are run by local people, Tamang and Sherpas, as they belong from the Trekking Trail. They follow Tibetan Buddhism religion; and have unique culture and practices.

The massive earthquake, 2015, has damaged badly this area. Now, the speedily rebuilding efforts of local reconstructed, and now it’s opened for trekking. Traveling in this region is direct support to locals who were affected of the post-earthquake.

The highest altitude in this journey is 4,048 meters, Kyanjin Gompa. However, during a day-tour, we reach up to 5000M, Tserko-Ri.

A full-day overland drive from Kathmandu, we can reach to the trekking starting point, Syabrubeshi. 

As per tour companies’ set itinerary, some offer for 6 days, 7 days, even 5 days, but 10 days is the perfect time for hiking.

Besides explained as above, other routes such as Gosainkunda, Tamang Heritage, Helambu, Ganja-La-Pass Trek can be combined.

The price of this trek varies as per the services required. Guests can arrange solo, group join, and hiring guide and porter. As a responsible Agency, we suggest you not to go solo Trek.
