Trekkers mistakenly overlook the valleys of Langtang and Helambu for the Annapurna and Everest regions. Although only a day’s drive from Kathmandu this region is a relatively isolated wilderness with sacred lakes and great snowcapped peaks. Langtang is situated north of Kathmandu Valley, bordering Tibet, whilst Helambu Valley lies north east of the valley, bordering Langtang. Both of these areas are predominately inhabited by Tibetans and Tamangs who share a similar religion, language and attire.

The trek traverses from the west to the east crossing extremely diverse landscapes: rice-terraces, gigantic rhododendron and fir forests in the lowlands, and in the highest parts you will find a rock and shrub wilderness with incredible backdrops of snowy peaks, and an arena of glaciers below Langtang Lirung (7,225m). A climb to the summit of Kyanjin Ri opens up a magnificent panorama of Langtang Lirung, Langshisha Ri (6,427m) and fluted and tent peaks of summits greater than 6,000m.

Day 2 Drive to Syabru Besi – Alt. 1503m. Drive 6 hours.
Overnight Lodge/Teahouse.

We drive northwards out of the Kathmandu Valley to Trisuli Bazaar. From here, our journey ascends above the valleys along a winding road. Shortly after entering Langtang National Park the road drops to cross the Trisuli Khola (river), continuing onwards we arrive at Syabru Besi, a Sherpa village where we stay the night. En route we pass through a number of villages many clinging to valley ridges, and there are spectacular views of the Ganesh Himal and Langtang Himalayan range.

Day 3 Lama Hotel – Alt. 2,410m. Trek 7 hours.
Overnight Lodge/Teahouse.

Walking into the heart of the Syabru Besi Valley we begin the day in a northwards direction following the Langtang Khola. Crossing the river the trail leads us into a forest alive with birds and the occasional troupe of monkeys. Further on, we come to the area which is famous for scrumptious honey; production takes place on the opposite river bank. The trail undulates constantly through forests of oak and rhododendron until the crossing of Langtang Khola On the left side of the river the trail climbs steeply up a winding rocky ridge of a rhododendron forest. As we climb, the rushing river that we have been following and listening to becomes a calming background noise as we arrive at Rimche, a small village that commands spectacular views of the green valley we have just walked through. Following a short descent we reach the Sherpa huts of Lama Hotel.

Day 4 Langtang – Alt. 3,430m. Trek 7 hours.
Overnight Lodge/Teahouse.

Continuing to follow the river course we ascend through the forest; after passing Gumnachok there is a short steep climb before the trail brings us to Ghoratabela (2,992m).Here we encounter our first view of the snow capped peak Langtang Lirung (7,225m) and register at the first checkpoint, which is operated by the army. The trail continues to climb with the valley widening, after Thyangsyapu there are several level sections, which are a welcomed respite. Passing hamlets, small streams – some with water driven prayer wheels, and Mani stone walls before a gradual rise brings us to Langtang village. Inhabited by Sherpas, the architecture and layout of the land – arable fields with yaks and cattle grazing above the village, creates a strong Tibetan atmosphere. There is a small cheese factory where we can taste delicious yak cheese.

Day 5 Kyanjin Gompa – Alt. 3,830m. Trek 3 hours.
Overnight Lodge/Teahouse.

Climbing out of the village crossing yak pastures, we proceed on a short steep wide trail passing several Mani stone walls. Beyond the valley opens presenting the impressive Langtang Lirung and Ganchenpo (6,387m). The trail goes through the Tamang settlements of Mundu and Sindum, both of which exude a Tibetan feel. After crossing the Langtang Khola, Kyanjin Gompa comes into sight guarded by the snow peaks of Langtang Lirung and Langtang Kimshung. A short descent takes us in to Kyanjin Gompa a spectacular glacial amphitheatre. It is an excellent base for exploring, to the north west there is the Langtang Lirung glacier; in the east is Langshisa glacier; and Kyanjin Gompa Ri a smaller peak north of this delightful village.

Day 6 Kyanjin Gompa. – Alt. 3,830m. Trek 3 hours.
Overnight Lodge/Teahouse.

A day to explore. We commence with a climb to the summit of Kyanjin Ri (4,350m). A steep narrow trail, with Juniper bushes scattered along it, leads us there. Throughout the entire ascent we witness spectacular views of the surrounding peaks. At the top we are rewarded with breathtaking views of numerous snowcapped peaks with many of their glaciers at the valley floor: Langtang ll, Langtang Lirung, Langshisa Ri , Ganchenpo and many more peaks of 6,000m and above; across the valley is the peak of Naya Kang (5,844m) and Ganja La pass. This viewpoint offers one of the most stunning panoramas in Nepal, completely mesmerizing. Retracing our steps the steep descent takes half the time to reach the village. The afternoon is free to explore the village where you can visit the Swiss influenced cheese factory, Kyanjin’s old monastery – in August it celebrates a festival where food and drink is free to everyone, or explore one of the many surrounding glaciers.

Day 7 Lama Hotel – Alt. 2,410m. Trek 7 hours.
Overnight Lodge/Teahouse.

Leaving Kyanjin Gompa we retrace our route westwards down the valley, following the Langtang Khola, through Langtang to Ghoratabela then onwards to Lama Hotel. The trail leaves the alpine country and returns to deep forest.

Day 8 Thulo Syabru – Alt. 2,210m. Trek 5 hours.
Overnight Lodge/Teahouse.

Continuing down the valley to cross the Langtang Khola. Shortly we arrive at Pahara Hotel from where we take a sharp left to commence the steep climb through forest to the Sherpa village of Thulo Syabru. From here there are distant snowcapped views of Ganesh Himal and Langtang Himal.

Day 9 Shin Gompa and then to Dhunch – Alt. 1960m. Trek 8 hours.
Overnight Lodge/Teahouse.

Leaving Thulo Syabru we begin with a steep climb to Dursagang. The gradient eases hereafter as the trail makes it way through forest that changes from pine to hemlock and rhododendron. With only an occasional sign of human habitation this tranquil route takes us to the ridge top and Shin Gompa Monastery, high above the Trisuli Khola. The valley views from here are spectacular.

Our final day of walking is a descend to Dhunche.

Day 10 Kathmandu – Alt. 1,350m. Drive 6 hours.
Drive back to Kathmandu, initially following the Melamchi River.

On your return to Kathmandu, you are free to further explore the city and its shops or simply chill out.

“Langtang Trek & Nepal International Marathon”

I used Trek Nepal to help organise a solo trek in the Langtang region. Email communication with the office prior to my arrival was quick, clear and helpful. And I was able to agree the route and duration I wanted. On the trek I was supported by a guide & porter, Kiran & Purna, who were both excellent. Professional and good company. After the trek I participated in the Nepal International Marathon which includes several days in a camp. Trek Nepal helped organise this fantastic event, and manage the operations at the campsite. Now having to cater for over 100 international runners, the team managed to feed, organize transport and basically make sure everyone had a great time. So whatever the scale of your trip, I believe you will be in good hands with Trek Nepal.

“Ganja La Pass”

A friend and I visited Nepal in March 2015, it was my second visit and I wanted to do a challenging trek. We chose Ganja La pass and set about looking for a local reputable local company, I did a lot of research and we ultimately decided on Trek Nepal Int’l are after reading some reviews and emailing them with a ton of questions. Sabina responded to all our questions quickly and with all the information we required. Our guide during the trip was Ganesh and he was absolutely brilliant! We couldn’t cross the pass due to the snow and Ganesh immediately had 2 new options for us to consider. I also got quite ill from the high altitude and was a little worried – Ganesh provided advice, ensured I got through it and ensured I was able to continue the trip. We had a fantastic time thanks to Ganesh and Trek Nepal Int’l – I highly recommend them to anyone trekking in Nepal and will be going with them again on my next visit.

“Great choice for Langtang trekking”

Last November we went with them to Langtang Trekking.

We are very happy with their work. The staff in the office was extraordinarly heedful and they adapted kindly the thekking to our limited available time.

During the route we were led by the smiling Pramod Kraki, a young but proffesional guide; he was very helpful, polite and wise in his advises. We are so happy and thankful to him. We strongly recomend him.

The Company it’s a very good option to consider if you’re thinking to be guided in Nepal.

“Amazing trek through Langtang & Gosainkund”

This was our very first trek we’ve ever done and we had an absolutely fantastic time with our guide! Our guide was very knowledgeable, had a great personality, was very flexible and was an absolute pleasure to be around for 16 days.

All of our dealings with Trek Nepal were very professional and timely. I would highly recommend Trek Nepal to anyone who is looking for trekking services in Nepal.

Trek Nepal is not the cheapest service available, not by a long shot. However, I encourage any curious individual to ask Resham why he charges higher prices and then decide if it’s worth it. For us, it was.
