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.
Trek starts from Dhunche (1960m) or Syabrubesi (1503m) 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.
If time is limited and money isnt an issue, consider adding a helicopter ride out from Kyanjin. Not only will this shorten the trip significantly and prevent you from needing to retrace your route, but youll have unforgettable views that cant be had any other way.
