Langtang Valley Trek - 10 Day Itinerary with Details

Langtang Valley Trek is one of the pleasant trek experiences in Nepal. It is a splendid trek through small village settlements, farmlands and verdant forests in the Langtang Valley. You will walk along the pristine countryside and through high alpine yak pastures to the magnificence Kyanjin Gompa. In addition to the wonderful landscapes, you will have the opportunity to come across Himalayan pheasant and red panda on your Langtang Valley Trek.

The adventurous Langtang Valley Trek begins after a short drive to Syabrubesi (2380 meters) from the beautiful Kathmandu via taxi or private vehicle. Our Langtang Valley Trek first leads you on a serene uphill climb as you overlook the majestic Langtang mountain range. Further on the trail, we follow the ancient trading route on the border with Tibet.

Langtang Valley Trek Route

Langtang Valley Trek starts with a scenic bus ride from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. You will first trek to Lama Hotel and then Langtang Village. After that, reach Kyanjing Gompa and acclimatize the following day. You will hike to Tserko Ri as a part of acclimatization. Return back to Lama Hotel following the same route and then Syabrubesi. Your trek ends at Syabrubesi from where you will take a bus and return to Kathmandu.

Weather and Temperatures of Langtang Valley Trek

The weather conditions in the Langtang region vary with seasons. Out of all the seasons, Autumn and Spring are the best seasons to trek to the Langtang region. The weather is usually nice and calm during these seasons even though it is cold in early spring and early autumn. The temperature usually ranges from 0 to 15°C in these seasons.

The winter days are cold and windy and the nights are even colder. So, the weather becomes quite fierce, though trekking is still possible. Also, the views of the mountains with an extra layer of snow look amazing. The temperature decreases as the altitude increases. The higher region might face heavy snowfalls and blizzards. 

You can also trek to the Langtang region in the summer months. Unlike other regions, it is easy to trek to Langtang in Summer. There might be rainfall, but if you prepare yourself for that, the view of the forest after rainfalls looks amazing. 

Accommodation  During the Langtang Valley Trek

There are two types of accommodations during this journey. While in Kathmandu, you will stay in three-star hotels. While trekking, you will have to stay in teahouses run by locals. These teahouses provide you with the basic facilities of food and accommodation. The standard of the service varies according to the altitude along the Langtang valley trek. Tea houses at higher elevations will be comparatively expensive with basic facilities than tea houses at a lower elevation. Usually, you will have to pay $2-$5 dollars for a simple room at the tea houses on the Langtang valley trek. In addition, you should be aware that the tea houses provide accommodation on a twin-sharing basis. Most of the tea houses have shared toilets in the corridor or outside the vicinity. However, you will find it difficult to book a room that you prefer during the peak season. Note that you have to pay an extra charge for extra blankets and heater facilities at the tea houses on the Langtang Valley Trek if you would like some extra comfort.

Meals During Langtang Valley Trek

You can enjoy the local delicacies at the tea houses and restaurants during the Langtang Valley Trek. The tea houses provide staple foods like steamed rice, lentils, and stir-fried vegetables for dinner. A typical Nepali dinner costs around $2-$3 per plate at the local tea houses. The cost of the meal tends to increase as the food sources are limited at a higher altitude region. Also, you will have options for western foods like momo, Chowmein, pizza, spaghetti and pasta at the tea houses. Moreover, the tea houses at the Langtang Valley serve tea, coffee, soup, bread, egg, and Tibetan bread for breakfast. For lunch, you can enjoy food like fried rice, momo, pasta, sausage, sandwich, or packed lunch at the tea houses or rest stops.

We recommend you pack light snacks with you like chocolate bars, energy bars, and cheese with you on the trek. These quick snacks will fill you up and boost you with energy on the long and tiring hike.

Langtang Valley Trek  Difficulty

Langtang Valley Trek is considered to be moderately difficult. You will have to walk through trains with many ups and downs and hence demand some level of physical fitness. Most of the trekking is at an altitude lower than 3000 meters. However, you have to walk for 2 or 3 days in the higher altitude region. You are recommended to get involved in some cardio exercises, cycling, running, swimming, etc a month prior to the trek.

FAQs

  • Yes, there are several other options to return to Kathmandu from Langtang. You also have the option to extend your trek and use the trail of Langtang-Gosainkunda or Langtang Helambu trek. However, your price will be changed accordingly.

  • It is difficult to find banks or ATMs in this region. So you are recommended to carry enough cash with you during the trek. It is better to carry Nepali currency.

  • As you have to trek higher than 3000 m elevation for a few days, there is a risk of altitude sickness. However, the acclimatization rest will reduce the risk. You should maintain your pace of trekking and should not rush. It is mandatory to stay hydrated throughout the trek.

    Langtang Valley trek, wonderful time in Nepal.

    I was desperate for short trek of around 10 days. I found one package to Langtang Valley by Sublime Trails. Actually, my friend recommended me this tour. He was in Nepal two years ago.
    Mr. Ram Khadka assigned Mr. Ajit as my tour guide. Ajit was cool guide. He was fantastic photographer too. He was also constantly taking my care on trek. Our hike to Langtang Valley, Kyanjin Gompa and Kyanji Ri were awesome. Also, we hiked to cheese factory on the way. I had never tasted such fantastic fresh cheese. This trip was best for me. Also, I was able to be back on schedule.

    Kudos to Sublime Trails for its service!

    A group of nine of us engaged sublime trail for helambu trek as well as bungy jumping and white water rafting in march 14.

    Prior to the trip, the guide was very prompt in answering our enquiries via email, and assisted us in changing our itinerary when we had to change the duration of travel. As we had 2 friends going earlier to Kathmandu, the guide also had the flexibility in making alternate arrangement for them.

    Overall, the trip was well-planned and executed. We managed to achieve what we expected. My luggage was delayed on the day of arrival and the guide assisted me in retrieving my delayed luggage, and was very helpful. He even stayed with me till almost midnight to ensure that I had my luggage with me.

    On the third day of our trek, a few of my group members lagged behind, with the guide. It was nightfall, snowing and the trail was not easy. The porters had already reached the tea house, yet they took the initiative to go out again to help. The guide carried 3 extra daypacks, on top of his own backpack to lighten the load of my friends.

    The helambu trek was a trip to remember, and the guide seamlessly planned for our next activity after the trek. We went to the Last Resort for bungy and white water rafting and the guide accompanied us throughout. He then took us shopping in thamel and pointed out shops that he knew we wanted to purchase specific items. It was as if he was a friend than a guide, as we knew that he did it out of his helpfulness, and not because he has to do so.

    Kudos to Sublime Trails for its service! And my gratitude goes out to Ram- our guide for ensuring that we had such a fun and a well-planned trip! I will definitely recommend this company to my friends.
