Overview


Langtang Valley Trek is one of the most popular short treks from the Kathmandu region. This trek is also known as “The Valley of Glaciers” that is very much influenced by the Tibetan lifestyle. With the snow-capped mountains and beautiful glaciers, this trek lies between the main Himalayan range and the border of Tibet. It is a narrow valley that provides the best moment for the trekkers to walk off roads, view different Rhododendron flowers, bamboo forest, sub-tropical forest, etc. Influenced by the Tibetan lifestyle, you will also see the local Tibetan village and get a taste of the Tibetan lifestyle.

The cool weather, many different waterfalls, beautiful landscapes, snow-capped mountains, and less dense(unpopulated) area make the Langtang Valley Trekking just awesome. There you might get a chance to see wild animals, making this trek one of the diverse treks. Along with natural beauty, you will enter National Park (Langtang National Park) as a part of trekking, where you will get chances/opportunities to see different wild animals, birds. Among those you will know, you will be lucky to see a monkey(longer), Danphe(national bird), and musk deer.

Starting from Kathmandu, it takes about 8-9 hrs to reach Syabru Bensi. The actual trek begins from here. By following the Langtang river with raging and angry currents east of Syabru Bensi, you will reach Kyangjin Gompa with an altitude of 3870m. Here you will visit Buddhist monastery and view glaciers. Next, you will go to Kyangjin Ri, a height of 4350m, where you can see a 360-degree view of the mountains of the Langtang region. Langtang valley trek is one of the most enjoyable, fascinating short treks in Nepal.
