Tour Details

One of Nepal’s ‘big three’ treks, the week-long walk up and down the Langtang Valley traces a narrow forested valley, tight against the icy-cold Langtang Khola (River Langtang), emerging in the shadow of the mighty Langtang mountains. Reaching a maximum elevation of 3870m, the trails climb through ever-changing forests, which start out sub-tropical, turn deciduous and then, higher up, morph into pine and rhododendron forest. From the end point, Kyanjin Gompa, the views are even more spectacular, and trails climb further into the hills, opening up some memorable day and overnight detours.However, this route was severely affected by the 2015 earthquakes. Few settlements in the valley escaped without some collapsed buildings, and Langtang itself was completely destroyed by a deadly landslide that killed hundreds of local people and trekkers. Trails and bridges were also badly damaged all along the route, with many sections blocked by small landslides.  The trails are reopened , and lodges are rebuilt. The construction work is going on rapidly and the route is completely safe now for trekking.

Langtang valley trekking is more existing long day walk to Langshisha Kharka. From Kyanjing Gompa the trail heading east and trail follow the valley past the turnoff to Tsergo Ri and past the airfield. It is long walking approximately 10 hours from  Kyanjing Gompa. Himalayan snow treks  & expedition  guide will carry some snacks and water. Also, we recommend bringing snacks and some water with you. Along the way, you get some great views of the nearby peaks including Dorje Lakpa, and eventually Shisha Pangma, the only 8,000-meter peak in Tibet.  The trail accent few minutes after that continue to be a pass through the moraines  you reach a Langshisha Kharka, which is marked by a number of poles with prayer flags. After having a pack lunch return to the Kayanjing Gompa. The  Langtang valley trekking is one of the enjoyable short trekking route to Nepal. From Kyangjin, you retrace your route back down from valley to Syabrubesi and then drive back to Kathmandu.

Itinerary

Day 1Arrival in Kathmandu (1,350m/4,428ft)

After landing at the Tribhuwan International Airport, we will be greeted by a representative of Himalayan snow treks & expedition who will drop us off at our hotel. We then check-in at the hotel, freshen up and take a rest. In the evening, a welcome dinner will be hosted by Himalayan snow treks & expedition. Overnight in Kathmandu.

Day 2Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1,550m/5,100ft): 7-8 hours

After having breakfast in the hotel we will drive from Kathmandu in the morning for Syabrubesi, village it is the starting point for treks into the Langtang valley. It takes us 8-9 hours drive. We will rest today in syabrubesi. It’s a long drive so today we will not walk much.

Day 3Trek from Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel (2,380m/7,830ft): 6 hours

After registering and showing permits at Syabrubesi, and crossing the Bhote Kosi river, our second day involves a climb through scenic forests to Changtang, popularly known as Lama Hotel (2480m), via the villages of Doman, Pairo, Bamboo and Renche. We will rest today in Lama hotel.

Day 4Lama Hotel to Langtang (4-5 hours, 980m ascent)

The trail from Lama Hotel rises past small villages in the forest, before emerging into a classic U-shaped glacial valley. Before the quake, permits were checked at the army post just before Thangshyap, but all the settlements between Lama Hotel and Thangshyap were badly damaged by the tremors, and the section of trail beyond was obliterated by a vast landslide, which flattened the villages of Tsarding, Chamki, Gumba and Langtang, formerly the overnight stop for lama Hotel.we will walk for maximum 5-6 hours and reach to langtang village and overnight at langtang village.

Day 5Langtang to Kyanjin Gompa (2-3 hours, 460m ascent)

The trail onwards from Langtang climbs through increasingly rugged country through the small yak-herding villages of Mundu, Sindum and Yampha, eventually tracing the path of the Langtang Khola to Kyanjin Gompa (3870m) we will walk 2-3 hours to reach kyanjin Gompa. overnight at kyanjin Gompa.

Day 6Acclimatization- Explore Tserko Ri (5000m/16,404ft) 7-8 hours

Having reached Kyanjin Gompa, we need a day rest for acclimatization most travelers take a few days to explore the surrounding valleys. One popular trail follows the Lirung Valley, which cuts a dramatic track to the north, framed by a line of peaks along the Tibetan border. Northeast of Kyanjin Gompa, the viewpoint at Kyanjin Ri (4600m) is still spectacular despite the disaster, as is the viewpoint at Tsergo Ri (4984m), a longer day-trip to the east. The two-hour trip to Tsona Lakes is a less energetic alternative.
Side Trip: Langshisha Kharka (6½–7½ hours, 500m ascent, 500m descent)
A more challenging add-on from Kyanjin Gompa is the long day, or overnight camping trek to Langshisha Kharka, a remote summer pasture with eye-popping views of Doje Lakpa (6966m) and Penthang Karpo Ri (6830m). The trail follows the Langtang Khola east up the valley.

Side Trip: Yala Peak (2 days, 1630m ascent, 1630m descent)
Another challenging bolt-on is the two-day return trip to Yala Peak (5500m), a decommissioned trekking peak to the east, accessible as a camping trek from Kyanjin Gompa. No extra permits are required, but you will need camping equipment, basic mountaineering gear (ice-axes, ropes and crampons) and an experienced guide. The route traces the trail to Tsergo Ri before climbing the southern slope of the peak.

Day 7Kyangjin Gompa to Lama Hotel: 6-7 hours

We start our trek after breakfast and retrace our steps to Lama Hotel. Most of the trekking today will be downhill as we pass through forests and beautiful Tamang villages. We also get to enjoy different view of the Himalayas that we had missed climbing up. Overnight in Lama Hotel.

Day 8Lama Hotel to Syabrubesi: 4-5 hours

We retrace our steps back to Syabrubesi. The trek will be easier as it will mostly involve descending. Overnight in Syabrubesi.

Day 9Syabrubesi to Kathmandu

After breakfast, we drive back to Kathmandu. We spend the rest of the day packing and maybe catching up on some last-minute souvenir shopping. Himalayan Glacier will celebrate our successful trip in the Langtang Valley by hosting a farewell dinner. Overnight in Kathmandu.

Day 10Kathmandu Valley City Tour / Final Departure

After breakfast we start a cab tour to several of the most historical and spiritual attractions in Kathmandu. Some of these landmarks are considered World Heritage Sites including the historic Durbar Square, the sacred Hindu temple of Pashupatinath, the famous ‘Monkey Temple’ (Swayambhunath) and Buddhist shrine (Bouddhanath), which is one of the largest stupas in the world. Final Departure or extend your stay.
