The Langtang Valley Trek is one of Nepal’s best. The Langtang Region is the country’s third most-popular region for trekking and the Langtang Valley is a highlight.

The trail here ascends quickly through a densely forested river valley and finally opens wide up after several hours of hiking. There are plenty of tea houses along the way and two main villages: Langtang and Kyanjin Gumba.

Most trekkers reach Kyanjin Gumba and  stay for a couple days to enjoy the high elevation and take day hikes from where you can witness some of the highest peaks.

Langtang Valley Trek is at its busiest during October and November when the weather is good, but a little bit chilly. September is an even better time to go.

Days on the Langtang Valley Trek

Most people start from Shryaphru Besi but my group came from Thulo Shyaphru and the Gosainkunda Trek.

Day 7: Bamboo to Lagtang: 7.5 hours

Long day hiking uphill. Nice accommodation in Langtang at Peace full guest house.

Day 8: Langtang to Kyanjin Gumba: 2.5 hours

Slightly uphill to the last village, Kyanjin Gumba, at 3,870 m.

Day 9: Kyanjin Gumba to summit of Tserko Ri return: 8.5 hours

Optional all day hike up to Tserko Ri at 4,984 m –highest elevation on the trek. Steep trail and thin air made it difficult to breathe near the top.

Day 10: Kyanjin Gumba to Rimche: 9 hours

Mostly downhill and late arrival in Rimche.

  1. Stunning… it would take me forever to hike through there because I’d stop every 10 feet to stand in awe.

  2. These photos are given me chills! Amazing shots! Really inspiring articles. Officially on my “want to hike” list! … but 9 hours of hiking just seems mental! Well done!
