Posted by Adventure White Himalaya Treks on June 24th, 2022

A trek to the Langtang Valley is one of the most rewarding short treks available anywhere in Nepal. The Langtang Valley Trek is the closest trekking destination to experience the scenic beauty of the Himalayas from Kathmandu. Despite being so close to Kathmandu Valley, Langtang Trek offer an epic experience as any of the Tibetan highlands with serene rural landscapes that warm the heart.

While many people recognize the names Everest Base Camp Trek Annapurna Circuit and Annapurna Base Camp Trek, few recognize the name Langtang Valley Trek.

About Langtang Trek

Langtang Valley Trek is one of the most popular treks after Annapurna Trekking and Everest Trekking. The east-west running valley is the site of some spectacular alpine scenery as well as a great place to meet unique people. Trekkers require a minimum of one week to add a few extra days for acclimatization and side trips. 

Being enclosed by several ranges of mountains glaciers, this region is additionally referred to as the Valley of Glaciers. The mountain peaks of Langtang Lirung, Langtang Ri, Dorje Lakpa, Langshisa Ri, and Langtang Himal enclose the Langtang Valley. These peaks make it one of the best destinations for hiking in Nepal. 

Along our journey, you will walk through the Langtang National Park. Although wildlife is hard to spot in a forest, you get the chance to see some interesting animals and birds. Among those found in the park are monkeys, musk deer, Pika, and the national bird of Nepal the colorful Danphe.

Langtang Valley Trek Route:

This Langtang Valley trek generally starts from Syabru Besi which is just a 7 hours drive from Kathmandu. Following our route map, we begin trekking from the lower region of the Langtang Valley through small villages, farmlands, and verdant forests to Kyangjin Gompa. After spending a night at Kyanjin Gompa and enjoying some sightseeing, we will return following the same route.

We can visit this trekking route at any time of the year. However, the Monsoon season isn’t thought of pretty much as good as alternative seasons since the path becomes slippery because of the rain and it’s pretty risky. The best season to visit Langtang Valley is from February to May in the spring season and from September to November in autumn.

In addition, this trek does not require any prior trekking experience as the altitudes are not all that high.
