Langtang Valley Trek is one of the most popular treks famous for its snowcapped peaks, pine and rhododendron forest, mountain stream and meadows. Located just 122km north of Kathmandu in Rasuwa district, Langtang trek is also known as glaciers trek and is comparatively less crowded than others.

Langtang region is home to Tamang and Tibetan communities and their rich Buddhist culture and tradition. Dominated by Mt. Langtang Lirung (7246m), the Langtang Trek offers a splendid panorama of Langtang Lirung, Gyanchenpo, Dorjelakpa, Gyanjala, Gosainkunda and Ganesh Himal ranges. The trek prominently features two high passes, namely Tilman pass (5308m) and Ganja La pass (5160m).

Regular public buses and private jeeps go directly from Kathmandu to Dhunche (1960m) or Syabrubesi (1503m). Thereafter you can start your trek to Langtang Valley passing through Khangjim (2235m), Sherpagaun (2563m), Lama Hotel (2340m), Ghoratabela (3030m), Langtang Village (3430m) finally culminating in Kyangjing Gompa (3830m). The Langtang Village suffered maximum damage by 2015 Earthquake. Trekking activity has since resumed in Langtang as local communities have rebuilt lodges and trekking trails.

Kyangjing Gompa affords breathtaking views of Langtang Ri and Yala peak and with a possibility of a day hike from here to explore Langshisa Kharka (4285m) and Langtang Glacier (4800m). You also have the opportunity to climb Tshergo Ri without the need to pay royalty. The trail entirely passes through Langtang National Park, which is home to such endangered species as Red Panda, Snow Leopard and Himalayan Black Bear. The forest combines a mix of pine, oaks and rhododendron species.

The Langtang Valley trekking trail is suitable for trekkers of all ages and under any physical condition. There are comfortable lodges along the route.
