Langtang Valley Trek Overview
The magnificent Langtang region is perfect for those seeking nature in abundance. Like all trekking regions in Nepal, Langtang is growing more popular, yet it’s less visited than the busy Everest and Annapurna regions. The Langtang Valley trek in Nepal ticks so many boxes! Being fairly short, it’s perfect for beginners or those with less time for trekking.
Trek through forests rich with flora and fauna including masses of rhododendrons (in full bloom in Spring), and spot exotic birds and monkeys! Relish the magic moment when you leave the jungle and step into the wide open space of the beautiful Langtang Valley. Then witness the enormity of the Himalaya when you spot Langtang Lirung (7,227m/23,711ft) for the first time! The highlight of our trek – we summit Kyanjin-Ri (4,773m/15,659ft) and enjoy one of the most spectacular 360° views!
The Langtang Valley trek includes some long walking days and steep ascents. So, we recommend you have a moderate level of fitness to do this trek.
Trekking to Kyanjin Gumba (3,800m/12,467ft)
After an overnight stay in a comfortable 3* Kathmandu hotel, we travel to Langtang by tourist bus or private jeep. Both options take the best part of a day, with a jeep being slightly faster, safer and more comfortable. Our destination and the starting point of our trek is Syabrubesi, close to the Tibetan border. The river runs through this lovely town surrounded by steep mountains where Nepali and Tibetan people meet to do business.
We start our trek following the glacial blue waters of the holy Trisuli River flowing from Gosaikunda. We ascend gradually and sometimes steeply through stunning forests of rhododendrons (in full bloom in Spring). Spot grey langur monkeys playing in the trees, exotic birds and giant beehives clinging to the mountainside. After trekking through the jungle, when you step out into the beautiful Langtang Valley, the feeling of space is magical! The backdrop – Langtang Lirung (7,227m/23,711ft) is our destination! After three days of good walking we reach beautiful mountain settlement Kyanjin Gumba – our base for two nights as we rest and summit Kyanjin-Ri.
Summit Kyanjin-Ri (4,773m/15,659ft)
From Kyanjin Gumba, cast eyes on our summit – Kyanjin-Ri. We’ll climb steeply yet steadily for two to three hours watching the town of Kyanjin Gumba getting smaller and smaller. When you reach the summit, take a deep breath and feel the exhilaration as you take in the magnificent 360° view including a postcard perfect view of Langtang Lirung (7,227m/23,711ft). Colourful Tibetan prayer flags create the perfect frame for the many beautiful peaks that surround you.
After a long drive back to Kathmandu, stay in Nepal a little longer and enjoy the capital. Kathmandu is home to seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so you’ll be sure to want to see some! Get more ideas about what to do in this Kathmandu Travel Guide.
