Tour Details

The Langtang Valley, also known as the “Valley of Glaciers,” offers an abundance of wildlife experiences and rich cultural and historical importance. The highest elevation point in the Langtang Valley Trek is 3,800m above sea level. Couple this with picturesque scenery such as pine forests, swift mountain streams, rugged rocks, and mountains rising; it is bound to be a unique experience. During this Langtang Valley trek, you will understand the history of Tibetan ancestry and their way of life, agriculture, and trade.

You can enjoy not only the colorful dresses of the people but also the blooming rhododendron forests, birds, and butterflies. The weather in the Himalayas is always unpredictable, especially in the upper reaches. Therefore, it is essential to pack all the necessary equipment while trekking in the Langtang Valley.

 

Highlights of Langtang Valley Trek:
  • Langtang Valley, also known as the “Valley of Glaciers,”.
  • Observe fascinating mountain views.
  • Unspoiled nature with pine forests, mountain streams, and wild animals.
  • The unique landscape for agriculture and farming.
  • Taste local cuisine with an amazing view of the Himalayas.
  • Experience Nepali-Tibetan community livelihood.
  • Spectacular Mountain Monasteries.

 

If you’re planning to go for the Langtang Valley trek during monsoon season, stay cautious on the trail. There are plenty of landslide-prone areas en route to Langtang Valley. While this trek may be relatively easy for experienced trekkers, it does demand a certain level of physical fitness and attitude. One proper way to keep you fit for the trek is to engage in cardio-oriented exercises.

Kathmandu Airport

 

Day 2Kathmandu to Gatlang via Syabrubeshi (8-9-hour drive)

The Langtang Valley Trek begins with an 8–9-hour drive from Kathmandu to Gatlang. Along the way, you’ll pass over ridges, revealing stunning views of Ganesh Himal, Manaslu, and Annapurna. The journey follows the Trishuli River, despite the rough road filled with potholes. Eventually, you’ll reach Dhunche, the administrative center of Rasuwa District. Don’t forget to have your TIMS card and National Park Permit handy, which are required at the Park Gate near Dhunche.

After descending for about an hour from Dhunche, you’ll reach Syabru Besi, following the Trishuli River and navigating bumpy roads. The trek then enters Langtang National Park, where you’ll notice the remote, high-altitude settlements. Surrounded by terraced hills, Gatlang, located in the Tamang settlement area, welcomes you with friendly locals and warm hospitality. This trek offers not only natural beauty but also a glimpse into the rich culture of the region.

Includes: breakfast and an overnight stay in a local lodge.

Day 3Gatlang to Nagthali (3,165m) (6-7-hour hike)

Following the trail to Nagthali, we leave Chilime. Along the path, we pass by a dense forest and might encounter the Nepal Gray Langur Monkeys. After walking for some time, we reach open grassland with amazing views of the Himalayas, such as the Ganesh Himal, the Langtang Range, and the Sanjen Ranges. After passing this grassland, we will reach Nagthali. Nagthali was once used as a popular meditation center for the local monks and priests.

Includes: an overnight stay in a local lodge.

 

Day 4Nagthali to Briddhim via Thuman (2,338m) (6-7-hour hike)

We start the day with a descending walk for about an hour to reach Thuman. Thuman is one of the Tamang villages that is heavily influenced by Tibetan culture. The people are friendly and love to sing and dance.

Later on, we continue walking through rhododendron forests and meadows towards Briddhim, another Tibetan-influenced Tamang community on the lap of Langtang Himal. The trail to Briddhim in springtime is beautiful as the whole rhododendron forest blooms. In Briddhim, we enjoy the traditional local cuisines and take part in cultural practices.

Includes: an overnight stay in a local lodge.

Day 5Briddhim to Sherpa Gaun (5-6-hour hike)

The trail today ascends to Khanjum village, and passing through the Chortens, Mani walls, and prayer flags along the way, we make our way up further to Sherpa Gaun. We get an amazing view of the Langtang Ranges from Sherpa Gaun, where we are welcomed by the warm hospitality of the Sherpa people.

Includes: an overnight stay in a local lodge.

Day 6Sherpa Gaun to Langtang Village (6-7-hour hike)

Today is a strenuous day, as we have to climb about 1000 meters. We start by climbing up a steep forest slope to the Langtang River. After ascending for some time, we cross a stream and climb past several water-driven prayer wheels to the large settlement of Langtang. Langtang is one of the oldest villages along this trekking route, and the view from here is more spectacular as we get closer to the mountains.

Includes: an overnight stay in a local lodge.

Day 7Langtang to Kyanjin Gompa (3-4-hour hike)

As you trek towards Kyanjin Gompa, you’ll be treated to a spectacular view of Langtang Lirung. The trail leads past the largest Mani wall, adorned with stone inscriptions of prayers, among other sights. After crossing several rivers, you’ll arrive at Kyanjin Gompa. Here, you can indulge in cheese and curd crafted from yak milk, a delicious local delicacy.

Includes: an overnight stay in a local lodge.

Day 8Rest Day or Explore Kyanjin Gompa and Tserko Ri (7-8-hour hike)

Today is the highlight of the trail! While it’s labeled as a rest day, you have the opportunity to acclimatize, relax, and explore the area.

Optional: Today’s adventure includes exploring Kyanjin Gompa and hiking up to the vantage point at Tserko RI. From there, you’ll enjoy incredible views of the mountains, glaciers, and Langtang Valley. Tserko RI is the highest point of the trek, reaching 5,000m above sea level. After taking in the breathtaking scenery, we return to Kyanjin Gompa by afternoon. You can also explore the village’s ancient monastery and visit the cheese factory and glacier. (No extra charge applies.)

Includes: an overnight stay in a local lodge.

Day 9Trek back to Lama Hotel (6-7-hour hike)

Includes: an overnight stay in a local lodge.

Day 10Lama Hotel to Syabru Besi (2,380m) and Drive to Kathmandu (3-4-hour hike), (6-7-hour drive)

Today marks your final day of trekking. After breakfast, you’ll begin your descent towards Syabru Besi. The trek is mostly downhill, leading you through lush green forests. Upon reaching Syabru Besi, you’ll embark on a drive back to Kathmandu. Once in Kathmandu, you’ll be transferred to your hotel.

Optional: Alternatively, you have the choice to spend the night in Syabrubesi instead of returning to Kathmandu on the same day. If you opt to stay in Syabrubesi, the following day after breakfast, you’ll be driven back to Kathmandu. Upon arrival, you’ll be transferred to your hotel. (Extra cost applies for a guide, porter, food, and accommodations.)

Includes: an overnight stay at Yatri Suites & Spa or a similar hotel.

I have just completed the Langtang Heritage Trek with three fellow Canadians, supported and led by Asian Heritage Trekking and travel. I would give this company an 11 out of 10 for their sheer dedication to helping us complete this track. All of the staff went out of their way to make sure that this trek was as safe and wonderful as possible for each of us. When one of our members became ill prior to our departure, the head of Asian Heritage personally drove him to the hospital and visited him while he was there. Our guide, Rohit proved an excellent leader, who imparted his vast knowledge of the region with enthusiasm and passion. Our two porters amazed us with their strength and agility as they each carried 20 to 25 kg of our gear up very very steep trails. The organization, transportation, and execution of this 10 day adventure was absolutely first class and I would highly recommend Asian heritage tracking and travel.
