The major highlight of the Langtang Valley Trek is the breathtaking views of Langtang and Ganesh Himal Ranges and the amazing glimpses of Langtang glaciers. Langtang ranges also host several exciting trekking peaks for climbing. The entire valley is an integral part of Langtang National Park, one of the oldest national parks in Nepal. Rare and endangered Red Panda found in region is a flag species of the park. Other interesting highlight of the trek includes a visit to the local cheese factory in Kyangjin and Sing gompas, a chance to try out local cheese.
Lantang Valley lies in northern part of Nepal close to Tibet. Adventurer and writer Bill Tilman once described Langtang Valley as “the most beautiful valley in the world”- a citation that is so unbelievably true.
Langtang Valley is inhabited by Tamang communities who still follow age-old cultural customs and Buddhist practices. Ancient Buddhist monasteries and Gompas and the valley’s landscape and the spiritual air pervades their everyday chores. Langtang Valley trail is an easy trek suitable for all age groups, ranging from young to old. The trek can be done any time of the year.

You head north out of Kathmandu driving through scenic foothills and ridgeline vistas to Dhunche. Stay overnight at lodge.
The trek today is very leisurely through forests and terraced hill slopes. As you enter Syabru, you descend to the ridgeline that separates the Langtang Khola from the Trisuli River. You will continue through the village to your campsite about fifteen minutes beyond on the slopes below the village. From here you can enjoy spectacular views of Langtang Lirung (7245m.) and Tibetan Himal ranges. Stay overnight at lodge.
The trail descends along the ridge on Syabru's main street and then drops to the Ghopche Khola (2050 m.) and again descends to the Landslide area (1810m.). Thereafter your trek ascends gently to Rimche (2400m.) through Bamboo (1960m.) before going along a level path to Lama Hotel. En-route you can see red pandas, monkeys and bears if you are lucky. Stay overnight at lodge.
At Ghora Tabela [3000m], the trail emerges from the forest. You can catch a glimpse of white monkeys and local birds. The trail continues to climb gently and the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during the summer months. Stay overnight at lodge.
The trail climbs gradually through small villages and yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyangjin. It is a dramatic setting, with snow covered peaks surrounding you in all directions. At this point, you can enjoy the panoramic views of Dorje Larpa (6990m.), Langtang Ri (6370m.), Langtang Lirung (7245m.) and several other peaks. Stay overnight at lodge.
You can visit the monastery and the cheese factory, walk up the moraine to see the spectacular ice faces and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung or ascend Kyangjin Ri [4350m], directly behind the village, for a breath-taking panorama of the Langtang peaks. Stay overnight at lodge.
From Kyangjin you retrace your route, following the Langtang Khola to Langtang village and on to Ghora Tabela. After lunch you continue the steep descent to Lama Hotel. Stay overnight at lodge.
The upper part of the trail is more beautiful for the panoramic view of mountains and green hill views. This path is broader and remains sunny through the different Sherpa and Tamang villages. The first half of the trail is gradually down and then the trail does a steep descent to Syabru Besi (1600m.). The main inhabitants belong to the Tamang community who has adopted Tibetan lifestyle. Stay overnight at lodge.
You drive through scenic foothills and ridgeline vistas to Kathmandu. The first part of your drive to Trishuli Bazaar is along a gravel and bumpy road. You then access a well paved road to Kathmandu.
