Langtang Valley

Langtang Valley

$700 per person
11 Days

The Langtang region lies to the north of Kathmandu and is easily accessed by road transport. Langtang itself is a narrow valley, close to the Tibetan border, that lies between the main Himalayan range to the north and smaller peaks to the south. Because of the easy access and comfortable lower elevations it is a popular area for short treks although longer treks can be done by combining the areas of Gosainkund or Helambu.
The main attractions of Langtang are the Tamang villages, the beautiful scenery and the chance to experience the unique culture. The Langtang trek is a short trek that takes us up through the Langtang valley on the way to Kyanjin Gompa where we take a day to experience the monastery and surrounding scenery. This trek is perfect for those you want to experience the wonders of the Himalaya but in a shorter timeframe, at lower levels and with a short transit to and from Kathmandu.

Tour Plan

1
Day 01 : Arrive Kathmandu, transfer from airport to hotel
2
Day 02 : At leisure in Kathmandu, preparation for trek
3
Day 03 : Drive to Syabrubesi
We set off for Syabrubesi after breakfast and enjoy a stimulating journey through the twisting roads of the Himalayan foothills. The journey takes about 6 hours passing through the main town of Trisuli Bazaar at 548m and eventually Dhunche, the administrative headquarters of the region, at 1950m. From Dhunche we progress to Syabrubesi which lies on the banks of the Bhote Khosi at 1420m where we spend the night.
4
Day 04 : Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel
Our target for the day is the settlement known as Lama Hotel at 2380m and we have approx. 1000m of gradual ascent over the day which will get us used to the increase in altitude, although we are still at relatively low levels. For the start of our trek we are on the south bank of the Langtang Khola, climbing up to Bamboo Lodge at 1850m and then on to a suspension bridge at 2000m where we cross to the north bank. From here we ascend to Rimche and then finally to Changtang which is known simply as Lama Hotel where we spend our first night on the trail.
5
Day 05 : Lama Hotel to Mundu
We start out on a gentle trail that becomes steeper and eventually enter the Langtang National Park at 3000m. From here the trail ascends gradually in a widening valley and we reach the area of the former Langtang (or Langtang Village) at 3500m. Langtang is the administrative headquarters of the National Park and is being completely rebuilt after being destroyed in the 2015 earthquake. We continue further to Mundu where we stop for the night.
6
Day 06 : Mundu to Kyanjin Gompa
We continue on to our final overnight stop, Kyanjin Gompa, at 3800m. Today is a relatively short day but we take our time as we are above 3500m. The trail takes us through yak pastures in a broadening valley, and all the time we have great views of the surrounding peaks. In the afternoon we can explore the village and visit the Gompa.
7
Day 07 : Exploration Day
There are many options to explore the area around Kyanjin Gompa, some more adventurous than others. It is possible to simply explore further up the trail beyond the village or we can climb the peak to the north of Kyanjin Gompa, Kyanjin Ri at 4773m, which takes approx. 2 hours. A longer trip is to climb Tsergo Ri at 4984m, which takes approx. 4 hours.
8
Day 08 : Kyanjin Gompa to Lama Hotel
We retrace our steps, this time enjoying a leisurely walk down the trail back to Lama Hotel.
9
Day 09 : Lama Hotel to Syabrubesi
Our final day as we again retrace our steps. This is an easy day and we arrive at Syabrubesi with time to organise our things before the drive back to Kathamandu tomorrow.
10
Day 10 : Drive to Kathmandu
We return to the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu with a 6 hour drive. We arrive back at the hotel by mid-afternoon at the latest giving us time to unpack, relax and look forward to the end of trek dinner.
11
Day 11 : Transfer from hotel to airport, fly home
We recommend that you book a flight out of Nepal in the late afternoon or early evening to ensure that you have enough time should there be any delay when travelling back to Kathmandu but as this trek does not involve any flights it should also be fine to arrange flights earlier.

On the trek

Our trips are all operated on the GAP system - Guides, Accommodation, Porterage. Over our many years of experience we have realised that clients prefer to choose and pay for their own food and drink on the trail. Not only does this result in a more cost effective regime but it takes into account the many factors that can influence our clients choice. Some clients prefer a hearty breakfast with relatively light lunches and dinners, whilst others prefer the opposite and so we allow our clients to make their choices and the sirdar helps to settle bills as we progress along the trail. We recommend that you allow US$25 per day for food and drink.

Permits and Entrance Fees

All trekking permits and entrance fees are included.
