The Langtang Valley Trek is one of the most scenic and culturally rich treks in Nepal. Situated just north of Kathmandu, the Langtang region features dramatic Himalayan vistas, ancient Tibetan villages, flourishing rhododendron forests, and holy Buddhist monasteries.

This relatively easy trek is perfect for trekkers who want a short but meaningful Himalayan adventure without venturing too far from civilization.

The typical Langtang Valley itinerary starts with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. After an overnight stay, you’ll begin the 6-7 day trek by hiking gradually uphill into the Langtang National Park. The trekking trail promises sub-tropical forests abundant with langur monkeys and red pandas.

Once you reach the high alpine pastures of the Langtang Valley, you’ll be rewarded with non-stop views of snow-capped Himalayan giants like Langtang Lirung (7,234m) and Dorje Lakpa (6,966m).

En route, you’ll overnight in traditional Tibetan villages like Lama Hotel, Mundu, and Kyanjin Gompa, visit ancient Buddhist monasteries, and soak in natural hot springs. The trek concludes with a descent back to Syabrubesi for the drive back to Kathmandu.

DAY 01

Arrive at Kathmandu

You will meet our airport representative waiting outside the airport terminal. You will then be driven to the hotel of your choice in a private vehicle in Thamel. After check-in at the hotel, there will be a trek briefing. Here, you can raise your concerns about the upcoming trek. You can take a rest or stroll the markets of the Thamel after all the necessary tasks.

DAY 02

Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1,462m/4,795ft), 7-8 hrs

After the early breakfast, we start our journey on drive out of kathmandu valley to Syabrubesi. The scenic drive to the northeast of Kathmandu is about seven to eight hours. On the way, you can see the magnificent view of the village, raging river, green valley, and snow-capped mountains.

The road to the Trisuli Bazar is pitched, and after that, the road becomes a little rugged while ascending to Dhunche. After descending back down through scenic foothills, you will reach Syabrubesi. You can explore the bazaar town and relax in there.

DAY 03

Trek from Syabru Bensi to Lama Hotel (2,500m/8,200ft), 5 hrs

The first day of the trails begins from the Syabrubesi. We pass through the Bhote Koshi to the Langtang River and then follow the Langtang River. Following the trail, then we go down to Rimche, located on the Langtang Khola bank. Then, the path climbs up slowly through the river valley. You get a view of the birch forest, bamboo, waterfall, and lama hotel.

DAY 04

Trek from Lama Hotel to Mundu (3,550m/11,645ft), 5-6 hrs

After having a delicious lunch at the Lama Hotel, the trek route follows the trail leading to Ghoda Tabela. After that, our path leads to Mundu, which is 30 minutes away from Langtang Village.

DAY 05

Trek from Mundu to Kyanjing Gompa (3,798m/12,495ft), 3-4 hrs

Easily walking for a couple of hours, we pass through small abandoned villages and meadows. Our route will cross a few suspension bridges, several tributaries, and a glacial moraine. We then finally arrive at Kyanjing Gompa, which will be surrounded by the mountains, making our trek worthwhile.

DAY 06

Exploration Day (Hike to Tsergo Ri)

It is an acclimatization day, so we would familiarize ourselves with Kyangjin Gompa. We will take a rest and go for a trek to utilize our remaining hours. You can excurse through the cheese factory and visit the monastery. We trek through the moraine trail to see spectacular icefalls and ascend to Tsergo Ri (5000 meters).

DAY 07

Trek from Kyanjin Gompa to Lama Hotel (2,500m/8,200ft), 5-6 hrs

After spending a couple of days exploring the beautiful Kyanjin Gompa area, today will be the start of our return journey from the Langtang Valley. We’ll retrace our steps back down the valley to Lama Hotel.

The trail today is almost all downhill as we lose the elevation we had gained on the way up. Though tiring on the knees, the payoff is spectacular views of the Langtang peaks that weren’t visible on the ascent.

What took 2 days of uphill hiking on the way in will be completed in just 1 long day on the way out. We’ll enjoy reminiscing on the highlights of our Langtang Valley adventure so far.

DAY 08

Trek from Lama Hotel to Syabrubesi (1,462m/4,795ft), 5-6 hrs

Today’s trek passes through forests and villages to Syabrubesi, concluding our teahouse trek through the Langtang Valley with its towering peaks, ancient monasteries, and friendly locals.

DAY 09

Return to Kathmandu on a Drive, 7-8 hrs

After bidding farewell to our porters, we’ll board a jeep or bus for the scenic 7-8 hour drive back to Kathmandu. We’ll reflect on our Langtang Valley trek as we watch the landscapes change from mountain trails to lush valleys and, finally, the busy streets of Nepal’s capital. Our Himalayan adventure ends where it began, in the comfort of a Kathmandu hotel.

DAY 10

Final Departure

The Himalayan journey comes to an end. One of our Info Treks representatives will transport you to the airport from the hotel. With everlasting memories of the mighty Himalayas, this will be our farewell. We hope you had a great time and wish you to travel to Nepal for more adventures and new stories to make.

Useful Info

Best Time To Go

The classic trekking seasons of spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November) are considered the best times for the Langtang Valley trek. During these periods, the weather is generally stable with sunny days and cold nights. Spring offers the added bonus of blooming rhododendrons painting the hillsides in vibrant red, pink, and white.

The clearest views of the Langtang peaks are from October to December after the monsoon rains have cleared the skies of haze. Temperatures will be cooler, especially at higher elevations, but the crisp air makes for excellent trekking conditions.

Summer (June-August) is still a decent option, though monsoon rains and cloudier skies often obscure mountain views. However, the greenery is emerald and waterfalls amped up. Just bring adequate wet weather gear.

Winter (December-February) trekking is possible for hardy trekkers who don’t mind cold temperatures and snow. Trails may be icy or snow-covered, especially at high elevation, and tea houses operate on limited capacity.

Generally, the best times are in spring and autumn, but the Langtang Valley has its charms in all seasons if you come prepared for the weather conditions. Work with a trekking company to pick the best month based on your preferences.

Langtang Valley Trek Difficulty

The Langtang Valley trek is considered a relatively easy trek suitable for beginner and moderate trekkers. The trail ascends gradually with no major steep sections, allowing time to acclimatize. The highest point reached is around 5,000 m at Tsergo Ri, avoiding extremes of high altitude.

Trekking days average 5-6 hours at a moderate pace over hilly terrain. Previous hiking experience is recommended but not essential. The trails are well-marked with only a few short, steep sections. No technical climbing skills are required.

The trek can be done by people of average fitness levels. The key is taking it slowly and steadily. Porters are available to carry heavier bags. Teahouses offer meals and lodging so camping gear is not necessary.

That said, the trek still reaches high elevations where altitude sickness is a possibility if you ascend too quickly. Trekking at higher elevations is tiring so a good cardio base will help. Some steep ascents and descents require surefootedness.

The Langtang trek is an ideal introduction to Himalayan teahouse-style trekking. The moderate difficulty makes it suitable for all ages and fitness levels. With proper preparation and pacing, it can be completed and enjoyed by most adventure seekers.


How long is the Langtang Valley trek?

The total Langtang Valley trek takes around 8-10 days starting and ending in Kathmandu. The trek itself from SyabruBesi to Kyanjin Gompa is 4-5 days one-way.
