Trip Overview

The trek through the Langtang valley will lead us through a forested valley through alpine meadows and pastures, to the shadow of the mighty Langtang mountains. We will first walk through a subtropically deciduous forest, which a little higher turns into a pine and rhododendron forest leading to the Kyanjin Gompa monastery, the peak of our journey.

In the Langtang valley, we approach the foot of the 7,000-meter Langtang Lirung, the highest mountain in the area. We will climb to the top of Kyanjin Ri 4600 m, from where we will have panoramic views of the snow-capped Himalayan peaks of the mountains and the entire valley. At a leisurely pace, we will enjoy a march with fewer hiking trails, relax in traditional cafes with delicious Masala tea and look into the lives of the locals.

The locals still have their own language, customs, and ways of dressing, which remain exclusively Tibetan customs. Langtang National Park is home to many wildlife. We will see herds of yaks, Langur monkeys, and if we are lucky, we can spot red pandas, mountain goats, or a snow leopard along the way. The trek can be extended by a visit to Lake Gosaikunda. Extension for about 7 days.
