Comparison is the best thing to know the distance of a place. The closer you are to the place that you are going to travel; the closer you are to the time that you will finish your trek. This is the truth that is most applicable to the Langtang Trek. Like other famous treks of Nepal, such as the Everest Base Camp Trek and the Annapurna Base Camp Trek that have national parks, the Langtang Trek also boasts of its national park. And there is a special reason for it because the Langtang National Park is the first national park in the Himalayan region of Nepal. Like any other park in the world, this park is also a symbol of beauty. The beauties that you see there are stunning mountains, and when it comes to the study of the Tamang Culture, Langtang is a resourceful place. If the Sherpas are the hospitable people of the Everest Region, then the Tamangs are the hospitable people of the Langtang Region.

Besides snow-covered mountains, Langtang has a reputation for having other beautiful natural sceneries like waterfalls, forests, and glaciers. It is also home to endangered species like Himalayan Tahr, Assam Macaque, and Red Pandas. But it is home to the unique creature called Yeti.

In addition to taking the above interesting places, the trekking trail of the Langtang Trek also takes you to the lake called Gosaikunda, which is famous among the Hindus. The valley is also important for the Buddhists because they visit the gompa called Kyanjin.

The trekking trail is scenic because it not only takes you to religious sites but also to the viewpoint called Kyanjin Ri. From this viewpoint, you will see the panoramic view of mountains consisting of Ganesh Himal (7429 m), Langtang Lirung(7324 m), Dorje Lakpa (6966 m), Gangchempo (Langtang Ri 7205 m), Porong Ri (7292 m), and Yala peak (5520 m), including Yansa Tsenji (6691 m), Kyunga Ri (6602 m), Dogpache (6563 m)Langshisha Ri (6429 m),  Gangchenpo (6386 m), Morimoto (6151 m), and Tsogaka (5847 m).

Langtang Trekking Route

Langtang Trek Route

In your itinerary, the first place you will arrive is Kathmandu. From Kathmandu, you head to either Sundarijal or Syabrubesi, the starting points of the Langtang Trek. The trekking route that starts from Syabrubesi is easier and shorter. When you trek from Sundarijal, you have to remember that you have to cross a high pass of 4000 m plus. This pass is not difficult to cross because our guide knows every inch of it. The trekking trail that takes you to the pass and other villages almost reaches an altitude of 5000 m. So, you can say that the Langtang Trek is an uphill climb.

How long is the Langtang Trek ?

In total, you will need 6 days to start and end the Langtang Trek. To these days, you have to add 4 days that are your arrival day, drive from Kathmandu to the starting point of the Langtang Trek, drive from Syabrubesi, and the departure day from Nepal. So, 10 days is enough for this trip. This is a standard itinerary of the Langtang Trek.

7 Days Tamang Heritage Trail

You can do this trek in the Langtang Region if you are not interested in the Langtang Trek. The trek itinerary of the Tamang Heritage Trail is completely different from that of the Langtang Trek. Culturally, you will know more about the Tamang people through this trail. Although the starting points of both treks are the same, you will reach the places that few westerners have traveled in the Langtang Region. You can customize the itinerary of the Tamang Heritage Trail by including the itinerary of the Langtang Trek.

5 Days Helambu Trail

The starting point of this trip is Sundarijal, which is also one of the starting points of the Langtang Trek. This trip is the easiest trek that you can do in the Langtang Region. It is also the shortest. Like the Tamang Heritage Trail, you can also customize the itinerary of the Helambu Trail.

How difficult is the Langtang Trek ?

Our clients never had a problem like altitude mountain sickness while walking the trekking trail of this trip. You can say the trip level is moderate. That is the reason everybody can do this trek and reach an altitude of 5000 m plus. Since you are trekking near the mountains, you know the trekking trails are rocky and steep, and you will be walking over there everyday for 6 hours. If you trek in the Langtang Region in winter, you will find the trekking trail covered with snow, and if you trek in June and July, the trekking trail is wet and muddy. To tackle this, you must be physically fit and super powerful mentally.

Best Season for Langtang Trek

The best months to do the Langtang Trek are March, April, May, September, October, and November. During September, October, and November, the temperature is neither hot nor cold. It is during these months that the sky is very clear and blue. Both support the planning of the trekkers who want to see the picturesque mountains. In the same way, March, April, and May are sunny, and this condition fully supports the trekkers who want to trek from one place to another in the Langtang Region because there is no rain because there is no snow.

Accommodation and Meals

Tea house means a lodge, where you can stay for a night and have lunch on the way. If you spend a night in a tea house, it will provide dinner and breakfast as well as a room, a bed, pillow, mattress, and blanket. Some tea houses have attached bathrooms. And in some teahouses, you have to share.

Our company will provide three meals a day, that is, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For breakfast, you are provided tea, juice, coffee, egg, potatoes, chowmein, momo, pancake, chapati, etc. On the other hand, you will have rice, pulse, curry, chutney, and papad for lunch and dinner.

Inclusion & exclusion

FAQ's

    • Yes, because trekking without a guide is like walking in the middle of the hills and mountains for the first time in an unknown place. Here, you are a stranger. Ask yourself how much you know about this beautiful place. Perhaps only 1%., therefore, to put you on the safe side, we arrange the guided Langtang Trek. There will also be a local porter to carry your belongings from one place to another.
    • If the Langtang Region were not safe, then we would not have trekked you there. If you are a female trekker, then we will arrange a female trekking guide and a local male porter for you. Since you are not familiar with the culture and language of the Langtang Region, we highly recommend a trekking guide and a porter for you.
