Langtang Valley Trek

Langtang Valley Trek

Langtang valley is a secret place in Nepal with enormous snowcapped peaks, spectacular glaciers, rhododendron and pine forests, grasslands, swift mountain streams, rugged gorges as well as ethnic cultures closely related to nearby Tibetan cultures. This trek is ideal for those who are looking for a shorter trek and one that is not too far distant from Kathmandu. The entire valley is also dominated by Mount LangtangLirung (7246 m). It offers spectacular close-up views of the surrounding peaks and glaciers of Langtang Lirung, Kimshung, and Langshisha Ri.

Langtang valley trek starts from Kathmandu with an eight-hour road trip bringing us to the starting point of the trek in Syabru Besi. From Syabru Besi we walk following the Langtang River toward the east until reaching Kyangin Gompa (3049 m) where we stay overnight stay in the Lama Hotel. Part of the captivation of this trek is the opportunity to visit and experience the local Nepalese settlements and see the unique lifestyles of the people who are related to nearby Tibetan cultures, both in attributes and in appearance. At Kyangin Gompa we visit an early Buddhist monastery located amidst beautiful glaciers.

From here, gentle ascents provide us with dramatic views of villages and surrounding forests and grasslands where cattle graze. The trek also passes through lush forests of oak, conifer and rhododendron. Magnificent views of Kyangin Ri (4350 m) along with 360-degree views of mountains scenery are part of this trek. After thoroughly exploring this region we retrace the same route back to Syabru Besi and finally back to Kathmandu. It's worth budgeting a couple of days here to take advantage of the fabulous scenic side trips.
