Overview of Langtang Valley Trek

Langtang Valley Trekking is one of the most pleasant trekking experiences in Nepal. It is a beautiful hike through small village settlements, farmland, and green forests in the Langtang valley. You hike along the untouched landscape and through high yak pastures to the splendor of the Kyanjin Gompa. In addition to the beautiful views, you have the opportunity to meet the Himalayan pheasant and the red panda on a walk through the Langtang valley.

The Langtang Valley Trek starts after a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi by private jeep. Your trek through the Langtang Valley initially takes you on a quiet ascent, while overlooking the majestic Langtang mountain range. Later we follow the old trade route on the border with Tibet.

Throughout the Trek, you’ll experience the hospitality and culture of the local Tamang and Sherpa people. You can also explore the old Kyanjin Gompa monastery in Tserko Ri. The spectacular views of Dorje Lakpa and Langtang Ri leave you breathless on this.

Important note

Your safety is of paramount importance when travelling with us. Please note that your trekking guide is authorized to change or cancel part of the itinerary if this is considered necessary for safety reasons. Every effort is made to adhere to the above plan. However, since this trip involves a remote mountainous area, we cannot guarantee that we will not deviate from it. Weather conditions, the health of a group member, unexpected natural disasters, etc. can contribute to changes in the itinerary. The leader will try to ensure that the trip goes according to plan, but is ready to be flexible if necessary.

Essential Information

Food and Accommodation

During your trekking in Nepal, accommodation is straightforward and offers limited options, so don’t expect the Luxuries as your home. We use a simple family-run guest house or a tea house Lodge. If available, we offer a private double or twin room with a shared bathroom. There will not always be access to a hot shower. Depending on height and location, accommodations typically incur additional costs for a bucket of warm water, which you can mix with cold water for washing.

During Your trek, you can expect to get mainly continental and local meals ordered from the menus. Most of the tea houses offer Nepalese, Tibetan, Chinese, and even Indian and Italian dishes. We offer three meals a day with tea or coffee. The food on the trek is usually vegetarian, and the staples are rice, vegetable curries, lentil soup, pasta, bread, potatoes, Momo, French fries, etc. Dessert is not including in the package.

There are fewer varieties in higher places near mountain base camps than in lower areas. Whenever possible, we try to offer you fresh vegetables from the village and fresh fruit. You can choose the food as you like, but it is better not to order different dishes for each person since it takes a long time to cook so many meals, especially during lunch. You can buy bottled water in the mountains, but we recommend that you bring water purifiers such as iodine and avoid bottled water. Water bottles are the primary source of pollution in the mountains.  If you trek at high altitude like Everest base camp, Drinking alcohol can increase the possibility of altitude sickness, so don’t drink alcohol until you come back to a lower elevation. 

Trekking guides and other staff arrangements

The most important thing that makes this trip pleasant and unforgettable are the experienced, polite, and helpful guides and crew members who can easily spend your days in the mountains. The best and most professional leaders lead our journey. All our employees are carefully selected based on conscious experience, leadership skills, and personal talent. To support local communities, we employ only local people who have sufficient knowledge of the culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local regions.

Travel insurance             

Travel insurance for every itinerary of our company is a prerequisite for booking a vacation. You must have at least emergency and repatriation insurance, which must include the cost of mountain rescue. Read the terms of your insurers carefully, especially make sure that the following is covered: 1) activity (i.e., tourism, trekking or mountaineering) 2) maximum altitude reached on the trek 3) evacuation of the helicopter for the case of an emergency. You must understand that you are ultimately responsible for all costs associated with evacuation and return procedures and that it is your responsibility to bear the costs of evacuations or medical treatment. You should be fully aware of the effects of organizing your travel insurance and understand the limitations and exclusions of your policy. Please note that under certain circumstances, our company leader can initiate helicopter rescue (or other necessary means) in medical emergencies without first asking your insurance company for approval.

Climate and best season for hiking

The spring and autumn season is considered the best time for the Langtang valley trek, as the climate and temperature are calm and constant in these seasons. The spring months offer the blooming of rhododendrons and many seasonal flowers. Fall is also one of the best times to explore and enjoy various Nepalese festivals like Dashain and Tihar.

Winter and summer are less suitable compared to spring and autumn. In winter, the temperature level drops below freezing, making walking to higher regions less pleasant. The days are cold, followed by episodes of snowfall and blizzards. Summer also comes with heavy rains and unpredictable weather. With the right gears, however, you can walk to the Langtang region all year round.

Physical condition and experience requirements

Langtang Valley Trek is a moderate trek suitable for passionate hikers who can walk around 5-7 hours a day with a light backpack. Walking at higher altitudes is more physically demanding than walking at lower altitudes; however, if you are in excellent health with an average physical condition and have a positive attitude, self-confidence, and strong determination, you can achieve this trip successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly for a few weeks before the trip is an excellent idea to improve your strength and stability. Past hiking experience would be a bonus, but technical skills are not required for this trip. It is vital that participants with pre-existing medical conditions, such as heart, lung, and blood diseases, consult your physician before travel. It is also recommended that you inform us of your medical condition before booking the trek.

Suggested preparation

  • Cardiovascular exercises, including running, biking, jogging, push-ups, and pull-ups, for approximately 4-5 days a week for three months before your trip is beneficial.
  • You should also participate in the development of core strength and muscular endurance in weight training.
  • Walking on the hills in different weather conditions will be proper preparation for this trip.
  • If you have access, kayaking and swimming can be a very beneficial way to develop the strength and endurance necessary for this journey.

    Very Good Trekking experience with responsive and professional agency

    We chose Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd from many trekking companies in Kathmandu because we have read many good reviews from previous customers. From the beginning, the director of the agency was quick and accurate in answering our many questions, and once we arrived at Kathmandu airport, our high expectations were confirmed. We chose Langtang Valley Trek, and it was the best experience of our time in Nepal, not only thanks to the great help but above all to our excellent guide, who was very helpful and cared us in every way. His teachings, his stories and experience are incredible. Thanks also to our porter, who helped us on our walk, not only as a porter but as a team member. We had a very good experience and looking forward to returning to Nepal for more trips with them to another part of Nepal.
