Langtang Valley Trekking Itinerary

  • Day 1 Arrival at Kathmandu Airport and transfer to hotel. Overnight at hotel.

    A representative from our company will receive you once you arrive in Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu and takes you to your pre-arranged place of accommodation.

    • Day 2 Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1,420 mt.) by bus. Driving 7-8 hours .Overnight at guesthouse.

      Our destination today is Syaphrubeshi. We start early on a local deluxe bus, which stops for breakfast and lunch on the way and brings us to Syaphrubeshi in about six to seven hours. This riverside settlement on the confluence of Bhotekoshi River and Langtang River has now become a favored trailhead. This is where we stop for the night. 

      • Day 3 Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel (2,340 mt.). Walking 5-6 hours. Overnight at guesthouse.

        Our walk to Bamboo, where we stop for lunch, starts out by crossing both the Rivers. We then walk on a trail that many should feel comfortable on the legs all the way along the banks of Langtang Khola. Bamboo awaits our arrival with a few teahouses. It is the Ganesh Himal that keeps many engaged. The walk up to Rimche and Lama Hotel after lunch is taxing, on an ascent that many find steep. Once in Lama Hotel, we check-in in one of the few lodges. 

        • Day 4 Lama Hotel to Langtang village (3,480 mt.). Walking 5-6 hours. Overnight at guesthouse.

          Leaving Lama Hotel in less than a quarter of an hour, today’s walk starts out through a subtropical forest with the Langtang Khola somewhere close all the time. As we continue to gain height, the vegetation changes to sub-alpine by the time we reach GhodaTabela, where we stop for lunch. Dal-Bhat is a filling option for many. Dal-Bhat does not just come with the Dal (a thick lentil soup) and Bhat (rice); it comes with at least vegetables and pickles and one can ask for some more helpings for no extra charge. After all, ‘Dal-Bhat-Power, 24-Hour’ is how the common saying goes. With Langtang Himal, Langtang Lirung (7,245 mt.), GosaikundaHimal in close proximity, the gentle ascent after lunch is a treat of its own. Once we arrive in Langtang Village, we check-in in one of the few lodges.

          • Day 5 Langtang village to Kyanjin Gompa (3,870 mt.). walking 4 hours. Overnight at guesthouse.

            Once again, we start out today on a gentle uphill. However, as the air starts to thin a little at these heights, slow-and-steady is no more a cliché. Surrounded by these huge elevations, Kyanjin Gompa is nestled in a valley. With slightly less than two dozen constructions, the entire village, along with yaks, are up and ready to welcome its visitors as we reach the place. Many find the glaciers, rivers and the Himalayas all around fascinating for a closer look. We stop here for lunch, dinner as well as the night.  

            • Day 6 Exploration around Langtang valley (Langsisa Kharka, Kyangin Ri, Tserko Ri as per time permiting). Overnight at guest house.

              Today is for a hike to Tserko-Ri, a vantage point at a soaring 4,984 meters. Around five hours up to a sharp incline and we finally come atop Tserko-Ri. The view is simply breathtaking and only the ones who have made it this far remain witness to this claim. A broad panoramic view that includes Yala Peak, Morimoto Peak, Kyunggari, Mt Ganchenpo, Mt Urkinmang, Mt DorjeLakpa, PangenDopku Peak, Naya Kang Peak LangtangLirung, Mt Kinshung and Mt Yubrato name a few leaves but every soul wondering. The sights Langtang Glacier and KyanjinGompa Village to the West simply add to this pampering. The walk back should take around three hours to most.

              • Day 7 Kyanjin Gumpa to Lama Hotel (2,340 mt.) Walking 6-7 hours. Overnight at guesthouse.

                Today, we return all the way to Lama Hotel/Rimche. Most of us would find ourselves pacing a bit faster now that the route is mostly a gentle downhill. Stopping for lunch, once again, in GhodaTabela, we walk on, retracing our footsteps to Lama Hotel/Rimche, where we stop for the night.

                • Day 8 Lama Hotel to Syabrubesi via Sherpa Gaon. Walking 5-6 hours. Overnight at guest house.

                  From Lama Hotel/Rimche, we take a different turn to Syaphrubesi, via Sherpa Gaon. Parts of the route, especially, to before Sherpa Gaon, demands careful attention as the slippery slopes look very inviting. Beautifully showcasing Ganesh Himal as well as other numerous mountains in the bordering Tibet, alpine Gaon, where we stop for lunch, is no miserly. We move on after lunch. The sharp downhill that follows almost all the way to Syaphrubeshi is the final hurdle for this trip. Once in Syaphrubesi, we check-in.

                  • Day 9 Drive back from Syabrubesi to Kathmandu by bus. Overnight at hotel.

                    Our return to Kathmandu is on a local deluxe bus, a ride that should last for around seven hours. With breakfast and lunch on the way, we traverse on narrow roads that meander from a hill to another. Arrival in Kathmandu and it’s certainly time for rest.

                    • Day 10 Transfer to Airport for your final departure from Nepal.

                      Depending largely on your travel fixture, you will be leaving for Tribhuvan International Airport for your departure from Nepal either in the morning or in the afternoon or in the evening.
