What Are The Special Feature Of Langtang Valley Trek?
How Long Is Langtang Valley Trek?
The Langtang Trekking trail passes through Langtang National Park. The blooming rhododendron, bamboo forest, beautiful waterfalls, fantastic scenery, and lots of banana trees along the trail are the glories of this trek. In addition, you will be surprised by hundreds of flora and fauna, Yak pastures, and some local cheese factories.
The Langtang village was badly affected by the 2015 earthquake. Your expenditure might be the right support for the reconstruction of the region. Thus, spending any amount in the region becomes vital support for raising the locals’ livelihood as well as the reconstruction of the devastated settlements.
The Langtang trek basically begins in a beautiful town called Sybrubesi, which goes through the wonderful alpine meadows and yak pastures around Kyangjin Gompa, one of the popular Buddhist Monasteries in Nepal. We suggest you add an extra day to hike up to the top of Kyangjin Ri Peak from where you can enjoy the 360-degree stunning Himalayan views.
Langtang Trek – Less Crowded Trekking Trails In Nepal
The trails are not as crowded as the trails of the Annapurna Region. The trails and the accommodation along the pathway are not as comfortable /advanced as in the Ghorepani Poonhill trek or the Everest Base Camp trek. The hotels and guest houses here have comparatively poorer facilities than other popular trekking trails in Nepal.
Some of our clients prefer taking a helicopter ride from Kyangjin Peak to Kathmandu with spectacular views from the helicopter. Although it is quite expensive, you will have an unforgettable experience and most importantly it shortens the tiring trip.
If you think Langtang is suitable for you, please contact Himalayan Masters who will fully customize the trip according to your time, interest, and budget. We will provide you with an experienced guide with an authentic license. If you add 3 extra days to your itinerary, you can combine your Langtang trek with the Tamang Heritage trek which gives you a wonderful cultural experience.
Day 01: Drive from Kathmandu (1400 m) to Syabrusi (1500 m)
The trip begins from Kathmandu Hotel. After breakfast, Himalayan-Masters sends you a taxi for pick up to Machhapokhari Bus Park from where you will take our reserved jeep for Syabrubesi. You will have a wonderful experience driving through Shivapuri National Park.
The zigzag country road, traditional villages, terraced farmland, and amazing mountain views from the window keep you alert and excited throughout 6 to 7 hours of travel. Before you reach Syabrubesi, there are a few stops on the way. Tasting some local flavors at Trisuli Bazar or at Dhunche is amazing.
The snow-capped peaks of the Ganesh Himal range from the trail between Dhunche and Sybrubesi are really wonderful. Like other trekkings, Langtang trek is also a teahouse trek as the accommodation throughout the trip is the teahouse with basic facilities. These simple lodges are comparatively cheaper with delicious meals with local tastes.
The food at a higher altitude is more expensive than the beds. You are highly expected to eat at the same teahouse where you have booked your beds. They might charge high if you do not eat there.

Day 02: Trek from Syabrubesi(1500 m) to Lama Hotel (2480 m)
It is the first day to begin the actual trek. After having a yummy breakfast at nearly 7 am, the trek to Lama Hotel begins. Lama Hotel lies nearly 7 hours away from Syabrubesi. The trek begins by crossing a suspension bridge over the Bhote Koshi River.
The trail then ascends upward through the dense forest of rhododendron and pine. The beautiful landscape, amazing waterfalls, and a few hot springs are the additional charms of the trails. Lama Hotel is situated at an elevation of 2480 meters. You will probably stay overnight at Lama Hotel.
Meal : Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Accomodation : Guest house
Day 03: Trek from Lama Hotel (2480 m) to Langtang Village (3430 m)
The third day’s trail passes through pine and rhododendron forests and finally enters the wide valley of Langtang. Today, you will witness a few wonderful views of the Langtang Himal range. Langtang Lirung is the highest among the peaks. Godatabela is an important stop with a beautiful settlement that lies nearly halfway on the route for the day.
You will probably take lunch at Godatabela. The trail then moves across alpine meadows where you will see a lot of livestock grazing. The trail then leads you to Langtang village where you will be staying overnight. This small and beautiful Langtang village was badly damaged in the 2015 earthquake.
After the devastation, the region remained almost ignored for months but the reconstruction projects made a huge difference there. The traditional styles of houses have been rebuilt in modern design. There are plenty of hotels and lodges with modern facilities.
Meal : Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Accomodation : tea house
Day 04: Trek from Langtang(3430 m) to Kyanjing Gompa (3830 m)
Due to the beautiful alpine scenery, the third and the fourth days of the trip probably become the best days. Starting the trek quite earlier from Langtang village, you will have to ascend a steep trail crossing some settlement managed and used by the shepherds.
As the trail today is at a higher altitude (3500 m) you will rarely see the permanent settlements. Thus, the shepherds’ temporary huts are only the options if you decide to spend the night before reaching the Kyanging Gompa. There is an amazing example of a Buddhist Mani wall near the community of Kyanjing Gompa.
You will see the beautiful wall of stones carved with religious scriptures. After arriving at the village, it is best to spend a few more hours exploring the surrounding areas. But you will be checked in at one of the best teahouses and keep all the luggage before you begin strolling around.
Meal : Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Accomodation : tea house
Day 05: Rest day in Kyanging Gompa(3830 m)
The fifth day of the Langtang Trek itinerary can also be taken as the rest day as you will spend one more night there. Most trekkers prefer to explore astounding viewpoints not far from the Kyanjing Gompa. There are two most staggering viewpoints: Tesergo Ri and Kyanjin Ri.
Tesergo Ri is the most preferable option for most trekkers. The breathtaking views of more than 20 peaks can be enjoyed from Tesergo Ri. The Langtang Lirung (7234 m) is the highest among the Langtang range. The viewpoints of Tesergo Ri lie at an altitude of 4984 meters.
Another option for the day’s hike is to Kyanjing Ri at an elevation of 4400 meters situated just northeast of Kyanjing Gompa. It is a comparatively easier and shorter hike than the Tesergo Ri. 360-degree views of snowy mountains, beautiful valleys, lakes with frozen water and the Glaciers are really spellbinding from the top of Kyanjing Ri.
Whichever summit you choose, you require to return back to Kyanjing Gompa for an overnight stay. It is approximately a 6 to 8 hours hike both for going and returning back. Visiting the most elevated viewpoints of the whole trip you will be gaining unique experiences that you will never forget.
Meal : Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Accomodation : tea house
Day 06: Trek from Kyanging Gompa(3830 m) to Lama Hotel(2480 m)
Now it’s time to return back. After enjoying the last breakfast at Kyanjing Gompa, the trek begins for the Lama Hotel where you had spent a night on the second day of the trip. It is a quite long walking day. However, most trails for this day are to descend which is more comfortable than ascend.
Today you will explore the Langtang valley in a better way as the longer portion of the walk lies through the valley. Upon arriving at the village, you will be checked in at one of the fine teahouses for an overnight stay. Enjoy the second night at Lama Hotel with an amazing dinner with a farewell party (probably there will be).
Day 07: Trek Lama Hotel (2480 m) to Syabrubesi(1500 m)
It is the last trekking day. After breakfast at Langtang region (Lama Hotel), you will begin the trek to Syabrubesi from where you will be catching a vehicle to Kathmandu. Thus, this is the final trekking day of your trip if you are not trekking to another side trek of the Langtang region.
Tamang Heritage trek and Gosaikunda Lake trek are the best options to extend your trek. There are two route options to descend back to Syabrubesi from Lama Hotel. The first is the same one you took in the beginning and the second is the much steeper one.
This route will offer you fabulous views of the Langtang valley and some of the tall mountains. Depending upon the weather and the clients’ stamina, our guide will decide which route to follow.

How To Get To Langtang Valley Trek?
There are two options to reach Langtang from Kathmandu. Syabrubesi is the more common and popular beginning point for the Langtang trek which is nearly 122 kilometers from Kathmandu. Another option for the Langtang trek is to travel to Sundarijal and start the trek. The journey will obviously be wonderful from any of the beginning points.
The stunning views of snow-capped mountains, varieties of wildlife, and blooming rhododendron forest are the special things along the way. Thus, trekking in the Langtang region is not only the walk on the highland but also to experience the majestic beauty of nature and to get in touch with unique local cultures and traditions influenced by Tibet.
The warm welcome and hospitability of the Tamang community are really worth learning about their way of life. Your visit to this region is greatly appreciated as it becomes a wonderful contribution to restructuring and rebuilding of the local houses that were badly destroyed in the 2015 earthquake.
Beginning From Sybrubesi
Syabrubesi is the most important and popular gateway for the Langtang Valley trek. It is also part of Langtang National Park a beautiful village at an altitude of 2380 meters from sea level. It is just a 7 to 8 hours drive from the capital city. As this region has no airport, road transportation is only the option to travel from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi.
Reserving seat(s) in a local bus or hiring a private jeep are the choices. The local buses leave daily from Machhapokhari near Balaju Bus Park. However, we, Himalayan-Masters recommend taking a private jeep for our clients.
And we arrange for all of our clients. Traveling by local bus can be quite upsetting as the road and the buses are not as comfortable as you find while traveling to Pokhara or Chitwan National Park. Although hiring a jeep is pretty expensive compared to the price of local buses.
But it is far better as they do not stop time and again and also provide you the chances of capturing pictures of mesmerizing mountains and wonderful landscapes from some stations. It is fine if you could get the ticket for the express bus which does not stop during the travel.
Wir haben bei Himalayan Masters aufgrund der guten Bewertungen bei Tripadvisor einen Trek ins Langtang Valley mit der Yala Peak Besteigung angefragt, nachdem wir mit einer vorherigen Organisation nicht zufrieden waren.
Von der ersten Kontaktaufnahme hat alles ausgezeichnet funktioniert und selbst kurzfristige Änderungen der Teilnehmer wurde von Sandip problemlos gemanagt. Auch unvorhergesehene Änderungen des Treks aufgrund des Wetters wurden innerhalb kürzester Zeit nach unseren Wünschen berücksichtigt.
Unser Guide Dipak hat die ganze Zeit eine super Betreuung übernommen und hat die Wanderung mit interessanten Informationen angereichert. Man hat sich die ganze Zeit absolut sicher gefühlt und man konnte die nepalesische Gastfreundschaft immer spüren.
Auch für die Organisationen von etwas sightseeing und einer Food-Tour in KTM standen Sandip und Dipak zur Verfügung- und das alles zu angemessen Preisen.
Ich würde Himalayan Masters bedenkenlos Freunden empfehlen, wenn Sie eine Tour nach Nepal planen!JPSGermany 🇩🇪🇩🇪
I had a great experience doing the Langtang Valley trek with Himalayan Masters!
Planning and communicating with Sandip, the owner, and his team was very easy and reliable from the beginning to the end and they did a fantastic job in answering all my questions and providing me with support when needed. The trek itself was an incredible experience and I felt safe and well taken care of the entire time.
If you’re looking for a professional, reliable, very knowledgeable and kind-hearted guide, ask for Rishi! He took care of all my needs while making sure that I have the best experience possible.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Himalayan Masters for your Nepal adventure and wish the HM team all the best for the future!Nora TeufelGermany
in Nepal mit Himalayan Masters zu buchen. Unser Ziel war der Langtang Trek mit anschließender Besteigung des Ayala Peaks.Luc SGermany
Bei dieser Organisation ist das ein Rund-Um-Sorglos Paket. Sandip, der erfahrene Hauptverantwortliche von Himalayan Masters kümmert sich um alle Bedürfnisse seiner Kunden. Alle Planung, von Unterkünften über Autofahrten bis Mittagessen, hat die Organisation sehr zufriedenstellend übernommen.
Für den in jeder Hinsicht beeindruckenden Langtang Trek wurde uns der Guide Dipak zur Verfügung gestellt. Er kennt sich nicht nur auf den Treks super aus und hat Wissen über die Region sondern ist auch ein sehr netter und unkomplizierter Zeitgenosse. Wir haben die Zeit mit Ihm und den ganzen Trek sehr genossen, obwohl wir den Yala Peak aufgrund eines unerwarteten Schneesturms nicht erreichen konnten.
Für den ersten Trek haben wir uns auch dazu entscheiden Träger für den Großteil unserer Sachen zu buchen, die waren auch sehr nett.
Danach haben wir noch unerwartet einige Tage in Kathmandu verbracht, deren Planung (mit Wünschen von uns) auch Himalayan master sehr zufriedenstellend übernommen hat!
Ich kann nur sagen, dass ich mir meine nächste Erfahrung im Himalaya nicht ohne Himalayan Masters vorstellen kann.
Phenomenal winter Langtang Valley trek with “Sandy” and “Pete”! We are a couple, 48 and 55, from the US. I’m vegetarian. Sandeep, the owner of Himalayan Masters, was highly responsive and professional from our very first contact. My partner had been concerned I wasn’t in shape enough to successfully complete the trek, but Sandy’s mindset coaching, alongside his flexible approach and insistence that I could do it if I just took it slow and gave myself the time I needed. He was so right! One of the hardest things I have done physically, yet I felt strong and solid throughout. Petamba also baked me a birthday cake for my 48th in the mountains. When it came the final day, my partner peeled off and did the more difficult peak with Sandy, and Pete guided me to the more manageable 13,500-foot peak. Pete is a wonderful guide in his own right- patient, careful, and encouraging, and with a safety-first approach.lisa shannonUSA
The Langtang trek is spectacular, and Himalayan Masters made it easy. Can’t recommend them enough- we are already talking about our next trek with them!
We recently completed the Langtang Valley trek with Himalayan Masters.Miles ChesterEngland 🏴
Communication before the trip was excellent – we were able to adapt our itinerary as required and Sandip was always quick to respond to any questions.
Transfers were all smooth and arrangements in Kathmandu were faultless,
The trek itself was superb. Rishi, our guide, was excellent – not only was his English perfect, but he was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Rishi was very aware of our needs throughout the trek and always went the extra mile to ensure that everything was perfect.
Namaraj, our porter was also great.
The Langtang Valley was as beautiful as we had hoped, and under Rishi’s guidance, we made it to the peaks we were aiming for.
All in all a wonderful experience and a definite five-star review for Himalayan Masters.
Highly recommended (and ask for Rishi!)
I recently had the privilege of embarking on a breathtaking hiking expedition in Nepal, and I can confidently say that it was an experience of a lifetime. What made this journey truly extraordinary was the exceptional guidance and expertise provided by our hiking guide, Dipak. His commitment to ensuring our safety, enhancing our understanding of the region, and creating unforgettable memories was truly unparalleled. I cannot recommend them highly enough!Shannon FAustralia 🇦🇺
From the moment we met Dipak, it was evident that he had a deep knowledge and passion for the Nepalese Himalayas. His wealth of experience shone through as he expertly navigated the trails, leading our group with confidence and skill. He effortlessly tailored the pace and difficulty of the hikes to accommodate everyone’s abilities, ensuring that each member of our group felt included and challenged in the best possible way.
One aspect that truly impressed me was the commitment to our safety. From carrying essential safety equipment to consistently checking weather conditions, Dipak left no stone unturned. His meticulous attention to detail and unwavering focus on ensuring our well-being gave us peace of mind throughout the entire journey. I truly appreciated his ability to strike a perfect balance between adventure and caution.
Beyond professionalism, Dipak’s genuine enthusiasm for the region and its rich cultural heritage was infectious. His deep respect for the local communities and efforts to engage us in meaningful interactions with the locals added an invaluable layer of authenticity to our experience.
In addition to his expertise and passion, Dipak’s exceptional organisational skills ensured that every logistical aspect of the trip ran smoothly. From arranging the most comfortable accommodations to coordinating meals and transportation, he handled every detail with remarkable efficiency, leaving us with nothing to worry about except immersing ourselves in the stunning beauty that surrounded us.
Finally, I must mention the unforgettable moments of natural splendour our guide helped us discover. Dipak’s intimate knowledge of the best viewpoints and hidden gems allowed us to witness Nepal’s awe-inspiring landscapes in all their glory.
In conclusion, hiking in Nepal with Dipak, and our porters, Sujan and Santos, was an absolute privilege. Their professionalism, expertise, and genuine passion for the region made this adventure an experience I will cherish for a lifetime. If you’re considering a hiking expedition in Nepal and want a guide who will go above and beyond to ensure an unforgettable journey, I wholeheartedly recommend Dipak. Trust me; you won’t be disappointed!
