The Langtang region is the quietest of the main trekking regions and a favorite among our guides – close up mountain views and a good taste of rural life is what this region gives trekkers.
Langtang is surprisingly quiet, that is, if you’ve been to the crowded Everest and Annapurna trekking regions. Our 8 days Langtang Trek takes you across Langtang, a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of peaks to the south – you can encounter really wonderful valley views during the trek from Lama Hotel to Kyanjin Gompa.
The trek begins in Syabrubesi and then the trail passes through the Tamang country, as you cross several streams and hike across waterfalls, forests and scattered human settlements. This trek introduces the first time trekker to Nepal’s fine mountain ranges including the Langtang Himal. Besides a picturesque scenery, this trek also gives travelers an opportunity to observe the local people’s lives and culture.
After your arrival in Kathmandu our representatives at the airport will transfer you to your hotel and help you in checking in.
It takes about 9 hours on a bus for us to reach Syabru besi. Since tourist buses do not travel to this region we make our journey in a local bus, overnight stay in Syabrubesi. We provide the private transportation up on your services requested.
Today we walk along the Langtang river, continue hiking across waterfalls and finally stop in Rimche before the trail descends to a settlement known as the Lama Hotel.
A three hours hike from Lama Hotel takes us to Ghortabela and another 30 minutes of climbing brings us to a point where the Langtang Valley begins.
From Langtang, it takes us about four hours of gentle ascension to reach Kyangin Gompa.
A day in Kyangin Gompa gives us the opportunity to visit the famous Kyangin Monastery and visit CHeRKO RI 4,984, After visiting the monastery we always have the option of going to the Yala cheese factory or the small lake behind Yala.
After breakfast in Kyangin Gompa retrace our steps to Lama Hotel.
Today we head back to Syabru Besi while following the same trail along side the Langtang river.
A long bus ride (about 9 hours) brings us back to Kathmandu from Syabru Besi. Once in Kathmandu you have the option of being transferred to the airport or staying at a hotel in Kathmandu.
