Discover the beautiful high alpine valley surrounding by snowy peaks and glaciers

Langtang Trek

The lovely Langtang Valley Trek, which offers snow-capped mountains and glaciers in just a few days, is the shortest teahouse trek in Nepal besides the Annapurna Base Camp trek.

You may get away from the city into the forested valley dominated by an amazing mountain of Langtang Himalaya in a short amount of time, making it an excellent choice for individuals seeking a week-long trek near the capital city.

The trek starts in Syabrubesi, goes through the Langtang Khola pass in Langtang National Park, passes by 2015 earthquake damage sites around Langtang settlement before climaxing at 3870m at Kyanjin Gompa. You’ll see snow-capped mountains of Langtang Lirung (7246m), Dorje Lakpa (6966m), and Gang Chhenpo (6388m), learn about the distinct culture of the Tamangs, observe yaks and wild horses grazing in the higher reaches, and most importantly help to restore local people’s life after the 2015 earthquake.
