Overview

The Langtang Valley Trek begins with a 122-kilometer road trip from Kathmandu to Syabrubensi, which takes approximately 7- 8 hours. Syabrubensi, 1472m, marks the entrance to the Langtang National Park, where we register our TIMS and Park Passes and begin our trek.On the Langtang Valley Trek, the Langtang River is our constant companion. The path begins with a stone stairway in a deep gorge. The pathway has a rainforest on one side and a river on the other. Several times during the trip, we crossed the river on suspension bridges, back and forth.

The strange scenery of Langtang (3,430m.), a culturally rich region, begins to appear. The valley is desert-like in its openness on all sides. The spectacular Langtang Lirung, at 7,227 meters, towers above a slew of other massive peaks. The mountain views appear to become more and more breathtaking as we climb the remaining kilometers to Kyanjin Gompa. On suspension bridges, we travel back and forth across the river.A knoll above the village offers a 270-degree panorama of glaciers and 5,000-meter-high snow-capped peaks. A 600-year-old monastery can be found at Kyanjin, at an altitude of 3,870m. Imagine the faith and perseverance it required to build this and make it through the hard winters around the time Columbus discovered America.

Depending on your interests and energy levels, you can climb one of the Kyanjin Gompa's two equally beautiful peaks.Tsergo Ri, 4,984m, is the most difficult and takes 6 to 7 hours round trip; Kyanjin Ri, 4,773m, is a two to three-hour hike from Kyanjin Gompa and is reasonably moderate. We spent one more day in Kyanjin, exploring the surrounding hills, ridges, and glaciers, before returning to Syabrubensi.

Langtang Valley Kyanjin Ri Trekking may be the most accessible trekking area in Nepal, but it has largely gone unnoticed by trekkers until now. The view of the valley and mountains changes all the time on the Langtang Valley Trek, but it is always breathtaking.Glacier-fed streams flow into the river from nearly vertical rock walls. As we ascend, we leave the jungle and enter oak and rhododendron forests. If we look carefully, we might see some interesting animals and birds, such as monkeys, musk deer, pikas, and Nepal's national bird, the colorful Danphe. The Langtang Valley Trek passes through many charming villages where Tibetan script on prayer walls and chortens reminds us of the inhabitants' Tibetan-Buddhist heritage. Don't miss out on the delicious local yak cheese!

All Nepal Adventure Tours & Treks recommend trekking from September to December or March to May. This trek is also suitable for the winter (Christmas and New Year) season, as the weather in this region is mild. A summer trek can be quite wet and slippery, and you must contend with leeches, but as for the views, this trek takes you so close to the Himalaya that, even during the rainy season, you get great views of the mountains that would be impossible on any other trek. In addition, you can enjoy a wide range of seasonal flowers, such as blue poppy in the summer.

Highlight of Langtang Kyanjin Ri Trekking

  • The trek into Langtang National Park is breathtaking. 
  • Road transportation is available to get to the trailhead. 
  • Kyangjing Gompa, Yala cheese factory in Kyanjin, Tamang villages'
  • Unique culture, tradition, and way of life Mountain views of Langtang Ri and   Langtang Lirung
