Langtang Valley Trek - 7 Days

Langtang Valley Trek
525

Among the main trekking regions of Nepal, Langtang Valley Trek is the nearest trekking region from Kathmandu Valley. It only takes a couple of hours’ drive from Kathmandu to reach this beautiful and rural region. This makes this trek very popular among visitors who want to do a short and easy trek in Nepal. However, despite being close to Kathmandu Valley, Langtang Valley is still quite underdeveloped, and therefore the accommodation and other facilities for trekkers are pretty basic and not as well-developed as the ones in trekking regions like Annapurna or Everest.

You begin your journey by taking about 8 hours’ ride from Kathmandu to Syaprubeshi, through the Trishuli river and along the Pasang Lhamu Highway. The local people you will meet in this region are mostly Tamangs and other Mongolians races. You will also meet several people who are descendants of Tibetans and who follow culture and custom similar to the Tibetans. Some of the mountains you will see in the Langtang range are Langtang Lirung (7234m), Langtang Ri (7205m), Dorje Lakpa (6966m), and Yala Peak (5520m). Besides the mountains and indigenous culture, the place is also famous for the Langtang National Park and the sacred lake Gosaikunda. Every year thousands of Hindu pilgrims visit this area to make a pilgrimage to Gosaikunda.

The best time to do Langtang Valley trek is in spring (March-June) and autumn (September - November). Summers tend to be hot and rainy and winters tend to be cold and snowy, and hence they are not recommended seasons for traveling around this region.
