About Trip:

If time is short, fitness a concern, and you feel the need perhaps to test the waters before committing to a more arduous trek through the Himalayas, Nepal Trekking Experts may have the ideal solution for you in the shape of the classic Langtang Valley Trek. Not only does the trek offer a journey of reasonably moderate effort through a scenically dramatic alpine region well worth visiting in its own right, but it also has the added benefit of being very accessible from Kathmandu, minimizing travel and days wasted for those who want to focus their limited time on trekking, rather than onerous bus or jeep rides.

The Langtang Valley was long a favored area for hiking and ranked only behind Everest and Annapurna in terms of popularity. The tragic 2015 earthquake had a devastating economic effect on the community, with many forced to leave, yet in the intervening years many have come back, the tea houses have been rebuilt anew, and life has slowly returned to something resembling the past, though tourism to the area has yet to approach earlier figures. Visitors choosing to make the journey will thus not only be able to avail themselves of one of Nepal’s most beautiful treks in the same manner as before, but can help support the wonderfully welcome and hospitable Tamang people of Langtang Valley as they attempt to rebuild their livelihoods in the wake of the earthquake.

The trailhead starts at Syabru Besi and courses through glorious forests perched by the banks of the Langtang Khola. From there the trail wanders up between the broad shoulders of the looming peaks to the narrow vale of the rebuilt village of Langtang, then on and up to the valley’s alpine pastures, yak herds, and the entrancing monastery of Kyanjin Gompa and its unique Yak cheese facility. Optional climbs to Kyanjin Ri (4773m) or Cherko Ri (4984m) offer stunning panoramic views of the valley and surrounding mountains. The return journey on the opposite side of the river gives the trip an entirely different perspective, and the additional option exists to add the challenging route to the sacred lake of Gosaikunda and the high pass of Gosaikunda La (4610m).

So if you’re on a short visit and looking for a mild pace through superb scenery we would suggest you consider the Langtang Valley Trek. Not only is it an exceptionally rewarding experience, but you’ll be helping to support a gentle and famously hospitable people to recover from one of the most devastating events to hit Nepal in decades. Contact our staff and we can organize your trek to the valley in no time.

Amazing Langtang Valley trek Experience

Amazing Langtang Valley trek Experience

Rating:  

Being a 23 year old woman, I was nervous about which company to book my trek with when I was in Nepal. I ended up doing two treks with Raj because he was so great. The first one was in the month of October with one other girl friend. We did 8 days in the Annapurna Circuit. It was absolutely beautiful and Raj did his best to keep us out of the hikers traffic flow during the busy month. In the month of April I recommended my group of 7 to hire Raj and Rabin to take us on a 6 day trek to Langtang. Raj's experience helped lead us to the to the summit of Cherko Ri, 4984m, when other guides were turning their clients back. This was my favorite of the two treks and I would highly recommend it! Raj and Rabin are genuinely interested in their clients lives and cultures and eager to share their culture. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to become friends with such humble and kind spirited individuals. Raj will not just treat you as a client but as a friend. There is no challenge Raj is not willing to take on, and safety of his clients is very important. My final suggestion is to hire sherpas to carry your backpacks. I carried all my own things on both treks, and it was a great experience but extra exhausting. The extra cost will be worth it!

Raj and Rabin -two trustworthy brothers

Rating:  

Trekking with Rabin along Langtang and Helambu was a wonderful experience. We have known him and his brother Rajesh for 15 years. At that time Rajesh was our guide to the Everest Base Camp. It was a unique experience to trek to his family’s farmhouse in the mountains and stay with them for a couple of days. They were so friendly, honest and hospitable. All our expectations in the trek 2016 became true. Everything was well organized. All the paper work and the organization previous to the trek were done fast and without much ado. We even let the company book our hotel in Kathmandu and realized that we got excellent accommodation for modest price. Transport to the start of the trek was well organized and good. Rabin knew so much about the landscape, the mountains, the various tribes along the trek and their cultures. He was always reliable, well humored and trustworthy. Rabin paid attention to what we wanted, to where we wanted to stay and any wishes along our trek. He well looked after our porter, too, which is important for the entire team. When I got sick in a lodge once he looked after me very well. We were never afraid to be cheated by him or his brother. We strongly recommend this company. In November 2017 we are planning our next trek with them. Hans, Hamburg, Germany
