Langtang Trek is a short trek to Langtang Valley. As the region lies close to Kathmandu, you won't face any difficulty reaching the trailhead. The valley is home to Tamangs, an ethnic mountain community, and rare Himalayan flora and fauna. Explore Langtang National Park and villages along the Tamang Heritage Trail. At Kyangjin Gompa, visit a cheese factory and sample yak cheese. When a devastating earthquake hit Nepal in the year 2015, Langtang was the worst affected among the trekking regions. Langtang, after the 2015 earthquake, needs visitors now more than ever. By choosing this trek, you will be contributing directly towards the welfare of  local mountain communities...

Langtang Trek is best suited for those looking for a short trekking adventure with amazing Himalayan views and unique mountain culture. Lying close to the capital, Langtang Region is easily accessible from Kathmandu. Our short Langtang Trek takes you to the homeland of Tamangs, an ethnic group who migrated to Nepal from Tibet centuries ago.As the region lies close to Tibet, one can view Tibetan peaks en route Kyangjin Gompa. Visit traditional homes of Tamangs and step inside ancient monasteries. Within days you will be walking along the glaciers tumbling down Langtang Himal. In addition, walk past Langtang National Park and get close to Red Pandas, langurs and a host of rare Himalayan flora and fauna.

Trek to Langtang and help local communities get on their feet 

Langtang Valley faced the full brunt of the earthquake that devastated Nepal in 2015. Langtang Village was almost wiped up. The inhabitants are trying their best to rebuild their lives.  A trek to this beautiful region not only rewards you with delightful views but also gives you a chance to help boost the local economy. By using local teahouses and purchasing goods from local vendors you will be directly helping local businesses. Together with the local homes, teahouses have also been rebuilt. Now there are many new and modern teahouses dotting the trail. Trek to this fascinating region and experience its wonderful biodiversity.  You won’t have to worry about acclimatization problems as most of the time you will be trekking below 4000 metres. Join this short Langtang Trek and let our experienced trek leader guide you through this culturally and ecologically rich part of Nepal’s Himalaya.  

 Looking for challenging options? 

If you have already trekked through Langtang Valley and are looking for another adventure that will take you off-the-beaten-path, then we suggest you try our Manaslu Circuit Trek. Filled with dramatic mountain views and fascinating culture, this trek takes you to some of the least visited parts of Nepal. You can also choose our popular Everest Base Camp if you want to reach the base of the world’s highest mountain Mount Everest. Both these treks are harder and more challenging than the Langtang Trek.

Why Langtang Valley Trek ?

  • Explore Langtang National Park, home to rare Himalayan flora and fauna
  • The trailhead lies close to Kathmandu
  • Experience Tamang culture, which is similar to Tibetan culture
  • Tread across verdant yak pastures and take pictures with these high-altitude hairy beasts

A special trek to Lang-tang

I and girlfriend wanted to take a break from our hectic schedules and bask in the beauty of nature. What better way than going trekking in Nepal! Since we aren’t much athletic we ended up doing this easy Lang-tang trek. We drove and walked through the forest filled with rhododendron blooms before the majestic views of mountains greeted us. Climbing the steep ascend and getting to see the beautiful view was wonderful. Kyanjin Gompa is a great vantage point to view Mount Langtang and it also has great places to stay. We saw a lot of Tibetan influence. Kyangjin gomapa is a beautiful place and I didn’t want to anywhere from there. Can’t say enough about amazing views and very warm and friendly locals. The pasta with local yak cheese was delicious. Words can't be justice to the mountain views from Thulo Syabru; it's breathtaking. Our guide told us that Red Pandas live here but sadly we couldn’t spot any. This will remain one of the most cherished memories since I went with my girlfriend but came back with a fiancé. Yes, I proposed her and she said ‘Yes!’

The green lush hills and high mountains feel just out of an adventure tale. The beauty of snow-capped mountains and its cool breezes can only be experienced not described. Walking on the trail lined with colorful rhododendron was mesmerizing. Waking up to the mountains was a dream come true. Most of the elements were magical for me. I only expected to enjoy the nature but I was pleasantly surprised by the pastries I ate there; it was yummy. Watching yak grazing on the pastures was wonderful.

My futile attempts of making momos at Kyangjin Gompa
If you are searching for an easy trek then trek to Langtang as it did! Trekking here felt like I am contributing something economically directly to those who survived the devastating earthquake.
