The Langtang Trek is a great option for a relatively short trek that offers beautiful mountain views and is easily reached from Kathmandu. Leaving Kathmandu you will make the 6 hour journey by jeep to the small settlement of Syabrubesi from where you will start your trek up the canyon of the Langtang Khola and into the heart of the Langtang Himal. Langtang Lirung (7227m), the worlds 99th tallest peak, dominates the skyline and a climb to Kyanjin Ri (4773m / 15655 ft) the highest point on the trek brings you to a beautiful panorama of mountains and glaciers.Spend a day hiking into the remote reaches of the upper Langtang Valley or exploring the historic Buddhist monasteries of Kyanjin. You can expect the very best from our Sherpa guides, all of whom live locally and have years of experience leading treks through the area. With the security of knowledge and expert advice on your side, you are free to savor every moment of your adventure! Our Langtang trek itineraries are carefully designed to ensure you have adequate time to acclimatize comfortably, thereby ensuring maximum enjoyment.

DAY 1 – WELCOME TO KATHMANDU

Elevation: 1,350m/4,428ft

Upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, we will be there to welcome and transport you to your hotel in Thamel. The tourist hub of Thamel is a good place to shop for last minute trekking gears and grab your first local Nepalese meal. Then, if it’s not too late, (depending on your arrival time), you can explore the city. In the evening, your trek guide will also organise a trek briefing to talk about the essentials of your trek.

DAY 2 - KATHMANDU TO SYABRU BENSI

Elevation: 1,460 m/4,790 ft

Driving Distance: 6 to 7 hours

Accommodation: Teahouse

You’ll start the day boarding a bus to Syabru Bensi, the traditional gateway to Langtang and Gosaikunda. It’s a lengthy drive (six and a half hours, approximately), but there’s tons of gorgeous scenery to drink in as you watch the towns of Trisuli Bazaar and Dhunche speed by. The snow-capped peaks of Annapurna II, Manasalu, and Ganesh Himal are visible in the distance as you cross Kakani, eventually giving way to the agricultural geography of hillocks, rivers, and small villages. You’ll know the destination is close when you begin to see the stone houses of Syabru Bensi, a pretty village popular with trekkers. 

DAY 3 - SYABRU BENSI TO LAMA HOTEL

Elevation: 1,460 m/4,790 ft

Walking Distance: 5 – 6 hours

Accommodation: Teahouse

Our first day trekking kicks off with a hike along the path of the Langtang River, which we’ll follow over the next several days, until the valley comes to a head. We then ford the river via suspension bridge, stretching our legs as the trail ascends in the direction of Paira Lodge. Up is the direction of the afternoon as we climb towards Rimche, after which the village of Lama Hotel is only 40 minutes away. The hike today brings us through scenic wilderness, in which you’ll be treated to the sight of native wildlife like red pandas, monkeys, and Himalayan black bears. 

DAY 4- LAMA HOTEL TO LANGTANG

Elevation: 3,430 m/11,253 ft

Walking Distance: 6-7 hours

Accommodation: Teahouse

We start the day going uphill, leaving Lama Hotel behind us as we ascend through a beautiful forest of oak, maple, rhododendron, and hemlock. Gradually, we attain Ghora Tabela, catchin tantalizing glimpses through the trees of Mt. Langtang Lirung the whole time. We then follow the Langtang Khola, climbing steadily until we reach today’s destination. Langtang, a notable Tamang village, is located in a gorgeous, remote valley. Houses of stone and wood are scattered among grazing pastures for yak. 

DAY 5- LANGTANG TO KYANJIN GOMPA

Elevation: 3,730 m/12,237 ft

Walking Distance: 4 hours

Accommodation: Teahouse

Trekking past Langtang officially moves us above the tree line, allowing you the opportunity to experience a more typically-Himalayan landscape, one rife with wiry grass, juniper, and shrubs. As our trail ascends we’ll pass Sindum and Yamphu, and then cross the Laja Khola. Prepare for one of the most dramatic moments of our journey as we scale a glacial moraine for epic views of the Kyanjin Gompa and icefall flowing from Langtang Lirung. Snap some pictures, and then square your shoulders for just a bit more walking to gain Kyanjin Gompa, the home of a well-known Buddhist monastery (for which it is named!). We’ll visit the gompa itself after lunch, and also stop in on a yak-cheese manufacturing plant. If you’ve any energy left, join us for a hike to the flag-topped peak of Kyanjin Ri, located just north of Kyanjin Gompa. 

DAY 6 - REST DAY AT KYANJIN GOMPA AND MORNING EXCURSION TO KYANGJIN RI.

Elevation: 4,770 m/15,649 ft

Accommodation: Teahouse

Early wake up call for morning excursion to Kyangjin Ri 4300 m for the sunrise view along with spectacular panoramic mountain view. We head back down to lodge for breakfast and explore the area that includes the ancient monastery and the Cheese factory founded in 1955 by Swiss Association for Technical Assistance (SATA). After lunch we hike to the glacier of Langtang Lirung.

DAY 7 - KYANJIN GOMPA TO LAMA HOTEL

Elevation: 2,410 m/7,906 ft

Accommodation: Teahouse

The beauty that drew us to Langtang follows us as we begin our trek back in the direction of home. Keep your eyes open for animal life, and do take time to appreciate the marvelous loveliness and diversity of the forests’ flora. 

DAY 8 - LAMA HOTEL TO SYABRU BENSI

Elevation: 1,460 m/4,790 ft

Walking Distance:

Accommodation: Teahouse

We’re retracing the steps of our ascent today, as we wend our way downhill from Lama Hotel towards Syabru Bensi. We descend until we get to Paira Lodge, and then have to climb through the forest on the way to the village of Syabru. The walking is easier, and the views are splendid. 

DAY 9 - SYABRU BENSI TO KATHMANDU

Elevation:  1,350m/4,428ft

Driving Distance: 6 to 7 hours

Accommodation: teahouse

We return the way we came, driving back to the capital by shared jeep or bus. It’s approximately a seven hour drive back, but that still leaves ample time to enjoy your last evening in Nepal! Partake of some sightseeing, explore the city’s multiple UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and enjoy some delightful local dishes for dinner in town. 

DAY 10 - KATHMANDU: DEPARTURE DAY

It’s your last day in Nepal! Grab some breakfast, and then take in some last-minute shopping in Kathmandu. We’ll make sure you arrive at Kathmandu International Airport with plenty time before your flight home. At this time, we’ll say our goodbyes and bid you farewell, armed with warm memories and gorgeous photos to show your loved ones.
