Langtang trek is also known among families looking to stay out of hustle and bustle of popular trails of the Annapurna and Everest region. This region is the closest popular trekking situated on the north side of Kathmandu.

Itinerary

Day 01Arrival in Kathmandu, transfer to the hotel

Welcome to the city of temples and the country of the Himalayas. Our airport representative will be waiting for your arrival with a name card written your name. We will transfer you to the hotel. We will introduce you to the tour leader and have a short meeting about the tour.

Day 02Drive to Syabrubensi

Our first day starts with a long and tiring drive to Syabrubensi. The road takes us via the North-Western region of Kathmandu valley following beautiful scenery and villages along the route. The road, especially after Kalikasthan, looks thrilling as landslides are continuously found during monsoon season. The road passes through beautiful forests of high Hilly regions with some occasional sights of blossoming rhododendron flowers and beautiful crystal waterfalls falling from the top of the hills. Once we cross the multiple landslide area, we will reach Dhunche and the road starts gradually descending towards Syabrubensi; a small town with few lodges made for travelers visiting this region.

Day 03Trek to Lama Hotel

We will cross the river and start ascending towards the Lama Hotel via small-small settlements of local people. We will pass via different villages such as Pahiro and Bamboo. Throughout the trail, we will be accompanied by the thundering Langtang river. There is steep climbing between Bamboo and Rimche. It’s a beautiful day inside the forest most of the time and occasional sights of monkeys and red pandas on a lucky day. Lama hotel is situated on the bank of Langtang river and there are 4-5 lodges for trekkers service.

Day 04Trek to Langtang Village

We will enter inside dense green forests giving us fresh air. The thundering Langtang river will be on our right and the enchanting birds on the left side. We will reach Gumma Chok AKA Riverside before we reach Ghora Tabela (2,950M) for lunch. A good view of the Himalayas is seen from Ghora Tabela. Proceeding further, we will let our national park entry permits be checked by Army officials then continuing the trek further takes us to Thangsyap and Chamki village before we reach Langtang Village.

Day 05Trek to Kyanjin Gompa

Today’s trail is mostly flat like gentle ascending surrounded by several Himalayan peaks in a 360-degree panorama. We will be passing by typical villages like Mondoo and Singdum on our way to Kyanjin Gompa. The yaks grazing on the grassland will company us today. There are many religious stone mani walls with Buddhist prayers written on them. We are supposed to walk clockwise while passing along the religious spots. Once the cross the glacier area, we will see Kyanjin village surrounded by the Himalayan peaks. There is a famous cheese factory to try some locally made cheese. We can also make a visit to Glacier if interested.

Day 06Hike to Tserko RI (5000M / 16,404FT), return back to Kyanjin Gompa

The most beautiful day of our hike is here. We will take breakfast in the hotel and start our hike to Tserko Ri with packed lunch. It’s a long day ascending but make it worth it once we reach the top of the viewpoint. The summit offers close Himalayan views of several Himalayan peaks in a 360-degree panorama. We will then return back to Kyanjin Gompa in the afternoon and take some rest before we start descending on the following day.

Day 07Trek back to Lama Hotel

We will be returning via the same route used to ascend a couple of days ago. It’s going to be an easy day. We will be surrounded by the Himalayan peaks most of the time. Lama Hotel is situated alongside the Langtang River, the night becomes louder as we hear the thundering sound of Langtang river.

Day 08Trek down to Syabrubensi, end of the trek

Once we take our breakfast, we will start descending to Syabrubensi which is the end of our trek. It’s the same trail that we used at the beginning. Once we reach Syabrubensi, the guide will reconfirm our transfers back to Kathmandu for the next day.

Day 09Drive to Kathmandu, transfer to the hotel

We will take a morning bus heading to Kathmandu. We will be following the same road used on the first day. It’s approximately an 8 – 9 hours drive to Kathmandu. Upon reaching the hotel in Kathmandu, we will get fresh and get ready for the farewell dinner.

Day 10Drive to airport, departure from Kathmandu

We will drive you to the airport approximately 3 hours before your flight time. The airport is small and has only 1 terminal. It’s time to say goodbye until we meet again!

SUPPORT

Meals and Accommodation: Langtang Valley Trekking is complete tea house based route hence we will be sleeping and eating in the lodges. However, in Kathmandu we provide 3 star category hotel accommodation with only breakfast. The lodges on the trek will be mostly shared bathroom / shared toilet while in 1/2 places we may provide you rooms with private toilet (depending on availability).

The meals on the trek will be mostly locally prepared using local ingredients most of the time however Kathmandu offers a wide selection of meals in basic to high standard luxury lounges. On the trek, the number of meal items will be limited to a small number and the tastes might not be similar to the actual item; pizza may not taste like pizza.

Best Season for the Trek: Spring and autumn are considered better for Langtang Kyanjin Trek. The best time to trek is usually during the dry season, from September to early December and early March to early June. In the winter and spring, there is a chance of snow on some of the high-altitude passes and Tserko RI might be inaccessible, while rainfall can make parts of the trail impassable in monsoon even though the trek can be tried in the monsoon / rainy season. Autumn ensures a clear and dry high-mountain pass with a good chance of a clear view towering Himalayan peaks.

The best months for Langtang Valley Trekking are March, April, May, early June, September, October, November, and early December. The Spring Season begins in March and runs until May, while the Fall season runs from September through November. The main reason for having a narrow window is that the mountains on each side of the valley will be filled with snow and ice and can prove treacherous for trekkers. Hike to Tserko RI might be closed in mid winter due to snowfall.

This trekking route is one of the most popular treks in the world and many people flock to do it each year.

FAQ

I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

The prices are different based on the number of people traveling together. The larger the group size, the lower the price will be. For example, the price for 1 person will be higher than the price per person based on 2 people. Similarly, comparing to the prices per person for 2 – 5 people traveling together will be higher than the prices per person for 6 – 9 people traveling together. However, the prices you will see at the time of the booking will be final regardless of price changes in the future.

Which currency is most widely accepted on this tour?

We accept all major currencies such as USD, EUR, CAD, AUD, SGD, MYR, GBP, THB, CHF, JPY, HKD, etc. Credit card payments are accepted only in USD. We also accept bank transfers, direct remittance services (Western Union, Moneygram), etc.

When is the best time to travel? What is the best season?

March – early June, and September – December are considered the best months for this trek. It’s possible to try to trek in mid-winter, even though the Tserko RI hike might get closed at that time (depending on snowfall/snow level). June – August is monsoon season so there might be some rain showers making it uncomfortable to trek. Sometimes, the roads between Syabrubensi to Kathmandu even gets closed due to landslides and heavy rainfalls.

We will be eating and sleeping in the lodges for the whole trek (Day 2 to Day 9 lunch). Generally, rice, noodles, pasta, vegetables, curry, potatoes, eggs, sandwiches, burgers, etc. are available. Meat is available in few places and it’s highly recommended to avoid it due to hygiene reasons.
The lodges will have twin sharing rooms. In most cases, we will provide you a private room or twin sharing rooms however in rare cases you may need to share the rooms with other travelers (especially if you are traveling alone).

Do I need to be physically fit?

Very good question. Usually, a person with previous multiday hiking experiences is welcome to join our treks.

A beautiful valley hike through forest at lower levels then up above the treeline with views of Langtang peaks and Nyakanga. Most people do this trek in 5 days but being older (l66 & 71) we organized it to do in 8 days which worked well. It provided for a nice pace and a chance to really experience the Tamang culture.

The trek route was beautiful but unfortunately we visited in wrong time and there were no views at all. We had a cool weather and lovely atmosphere but the views were not available. The rest was well. We can recommend Himalayan Leisure to other people.
