Lets go back to our favorite treks. The 2015 earthquake and avalanche had nearly wiped out Langtang village, the nerve center of the area. Aid and reconstruction have reopened this valley to trekking again. We were among the 1st trekking company to reach the Langtang village and helped the locals with winter blanket distribution post earthquake. In an effort to revive tourism, we now are offering this trip. Not only is still a beautiful trek, your visit will also provide vital support for local livelihoods.
This is a superb introduction to trekking in Nepal among some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole country and fascinating unspoiled Tamang villages and people, originally Tibetan horse traders.
You will trek through the magnificent forests of the Langtang Valley to the alpine meadows and yak pastures around Kyangjin Gompa. After an (optional) ascent of Kyangjin Ri (peak), where the 360-degree views of the Himalayan Mountains are truly spectacular, you can retrace your route back down the valley to Syabru besi and then drive back to Kathmandu.

Day 1 Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi [1.550m/5.100ft] 6- 7 hours Local Tea House
We have an early departure for the 7 hours drive to our trek starting point at the foot of the Langtang Valley. The road takes a spectacular route, climbing high over the ridges to escape the Kathmandu Valley and providing us with a superb panorama of the Himalayan Range, including the Annapurnas, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and the peaks of the Langtang region that we will soon become better acquainted with.
Day 2 Trek from Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel [2.380m/7.830ft] 6 hours Local Tea House
Our trail initially crosses the Bhote Koshi, flowing down from Tibet, which is literally only a few kilometers away. We then gradually climb up through the sub-tropical forests, teeming with bird-life, to join the trail from Syabru. We follow the river, climbing through uninhabited forest of oak and rhododendron and maybe catching a glimpse of languor monkeys roaming through the trees. We continue climbing along a steep trail to our tea house in the forest.
Day 3 Trek to Mundu [3.543m/11.621ft] via Langtang village: 6- 7 hours Local Tea House
As we continue climbing today there are occasional glimpses of Langtang Lirung between the trees. At Ghora Tabela [3000m], the trail emerges from the forest. Once there was a Tibetan resettlement project here, but now it is a Nepalese army post though it has no permanent inhabitants. The trail continues to climb gently and the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during the summer months. There is a monastery, which we can visit shortly before arriving at Mundu ; the village of Langtang, the headquarters of the Langtang National Park. The houses of Langtang and its neighboring villages are of the flat-roofed Tibetan style, surrounded by stonewalls enclosing fields of buckwheat, potatoes, wheat, turnips and barley.
Day 4 Mundu to Kyangjin Gompa [3.870m/12.697ft] 4-5 hours Local Tea House
The trail climbs gradually through small villages and yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyangjin. Here there is a small monastery and a government-operated cheese factory. We should arrive at Kyangjin by lunchtime allowing time to acclimatize and explore the area. It is a dramatic setting, with snow-covered peaks surrounding us in all directions
Day 5 Acclimatization: explore Tserko Ri [5.000m/16.404ft] 7-8 hours Local Tea House
Today we rest and explore the area. We can visit the monastery and the cheese factory, walk up the moraine to see the spectacular ice faces and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung or ascend Kyangjin Ri [or ‘peak’ – 4.350 m] and Tserko Ri [5.000m] ]directly behind the village, for a breath-taking panorama of the Langtang peaks.
Day 6 Kyangjin Gompa to Lama Hotel: 6-7 hours Local Tea House
From Kyangjin we retrace our route, following the Langtang Khola to Langtang village and on to Ghora Tabela. After lunch we continue the steep descent to Lama Hotel.
Day 7 Early Morning Trek from Lama Hotel to Syabru Besi.
Today is an easy Four-hour walk back down to Syabrubesi. Have early lunch there, and then we drive back to Kathmandu while enjoying the
