Heading out on a multi-day trek is the best way to experience the majesty and beauty of Nepal. Perhaps nowhere is this better exemplified than by the stunning Langtang Valley.
There are numerous different trekking options available here. The classic one is to head out on the 10-day Langtang Valley trek. This trek takes participants in a loop through the Langtang National Park, passing the impressive peaks of Gyangchempo and Langtang Lirung as well as to the shores of the sacred Gosainkunda lake.
Other options for trekkers include the 16-day Langtang-Ganjala trek. This adventure takes hikers from Syabru Besi, at the western end of the valley, to Melamchi Bazaar, at the southern end. Along the way, trekkers will pass different Tibetan and Sherpa villages as well as the impressive summits of Dorje Larpa (6,990 m), Langtang Ri (6,370 m), Langtang Lirung (7,245 m) and Yala Peak (5,520 m).
Finally, there is the 15-day Langtang-Gosh trek, which loops through the valley, exploring the various foothills of the Himalayas. This trek is popular for those looking to see some native wildlife as well as experience the local Tibetan and Sherpa culture. The views are absolutely stunning throughout as well.
During the spring and autumn, the weather in the Langtang Valley is best for hiking and trekking. Temperatures vary greatly based on elevation, but are generally not too cold for physical activity. Rain is less frequent at this time of year.
Any trip to the Langtang Valley begins with a flight into the Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM), in Kathmandu. Almost all guides will opt to meet you here before providing transport to the start of the trip.
