The Langtang Valley Trek is one of the risk-free short and easy hiking routes that is located within Nepal's first Himalayan national park, Langtang National Park. Langtang valley is the closest Himalayan region to Kathmandu valley; a few hours of driving and a few hours of trekking will take us to the region's remoteness. Despite its proximity to the Kathmandu valley, the Langtang region is particularly lovely, as it overlooks the Tibetan plateau and an enchanting agricultural panorama. Shabrubeshi, the entrance point or gateway to Langtang National Park, is only a half-day drive north of Kathmandu. Before reaching the breathtakingly magnificent highland region of Nepal, Langtang Valley, the trail meanders through a variety of rhododendron and bamboo forest, majestic waterfalls, and steep terrain. The spectacular views of large peaks, notably Langtang Lirung, captivate you on the Langtang Valley hike. Langtang Valley trek fascinates you with a superb view of great peaks including Langtang Lirung (7,245 m), Ganesh Himal (7,406 m), and Maya Khanga (5,846 m), Yala Peak (5,500 m), Dorje Lakpa (6,98 8m) and multiple Tibetan Himalayan.

Langtang valley hiking is popular with those looking for a short journey into the high Himalayas that is inspired by Tibetan culture. Tibetan ancestors still practice Tibetan culture, and heritage, and speak their dialects in the Langtang highlands. The east-west running valley has some spectacular alpine scenery and is a terrific place to meet interesting and diverse individuals. Furthermore, the valley narrows in the northeast, or top end, as little glaciers make their way down to tributary valleys and rivers. Similarly, the walk offers a varied path route with numerous opportunities for side trips, circuit treks, mountaineering, hiking, and cultural sightseeing. The highest point of the trek is Tsergo Ri (5,150 m) which sits immediately above Kyanjin Gompa, the alpine settlement of Langtang Valley nestled 100 km north of Kathmandu.

Langtang valley trekking is ideal for people looking for a quick, comfortable break from the worries of air travel. The terrible earthquake in April 2015 wreaked havoc in the region, and some original routes are still closed due to landslides. Local people and authorities, on the other hand, have been quick to reconstruct and rebuild the trail, and the valley is now open and safe for walking once more. The hike begins with a modified route up the northern valley ridge, directly above the landslide-affected area.

Why Langtang Valley Trek?

Langtang Valley Trek is a moderately short trip that leads through some villages, rhododendron, oak, and bamboo forest alongside beautiful waterfalls and spectacular snow-capped mountains.  It is remote and off the beaten trekking trail comparing the Annapurna Trekking and Everest trekking but provides an opportunity to observe the Cheese Factory, Kyanjin Gompa, and unique mountain vista from Kyanjin Ri (4770 m) and Tserku Ri (5000 m).  The Tamang culture here is interesting and it is easily accessible from Kathmandu. Langtang Village was destroyed by a huge avalanche due to the earthquake in April 2015.  So, Langtang Valley Trek is not only a beautiful trek destination but also provides a chance to see and provide fundamental support for local people living in the Langtang area.

How difficult is Langtang Valley Trek?

Langtang Valley Trek is an easy to moderate trek level where you have to walk 5-7 hrs a day with gradually increasing altitude. Because there is not any requirement for any sort of training and having an easy trail, we strongly recommend trekkers trekking in Nepal for the first time to taste the Langtang valley trek. The beginning altitude is 1460 m in Syabrubesi and reaches 5000m at Tserko-Ri, the highest altitude during the whole trek. Although some parts of the Langtang Valley trek are moderately tougher with narrow slopes and the rocky path it can be comfortably completed by every level of trekkers. You just need strong courage and willing power to complete this trek.

Information about Langtang National Park

Langtang is the name of the mountain and region in the north-center of Nepal situated about 50 kilometers north of Kathmandu valley. This region is primarily popular for the first Himalayan national park and fourth protected area of Nepal- Langtang National park which was established in 1976 A.D that covers a total area of 1,710 square kilometers in the Rasuwa, Nuwakot, and Sindhupalchok districts of the central Himalayan region and surrounding 26 Village development communities as well as Bhote Kosi and Trishuli rivers in the western boundary, Tibet and China at the north and east borders and the south border is located in 30 km north of Kathmandu city.  

About 6,000 people, mostly depending on agriculture, live here. Tamang and Sherpa peoples are the main majority in the region. The park is marked by a large variety of climatic zones from subtropical to alpine. About 25% of the park is covered by forest that includes Oak, Maple, and Pine trees and various types of Rhododendron. The Himalayan black bear, Himalayan Thar, red pandas, and various types of birds make the park attractive. Gosaikunda lake and Kyanjin Gompa are the spiritual sites of the Hindus and Buddhists in the park. Mt. Langtang Lirung (7,245 m) is the highest point in the park.

Transportation to/from Langtang Region

If you are wondering about entering and exiting access in the Langtang region from Kathmandu, it is good news to you that there are different ways to reach the Langtang Region from Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. There is easy accessibility from Kathmandu by land. It is located on the north side of Kathmandu. There are many options to get in and out of Langtang Region such as a direct bus to Syabrubesi, Sundarijal, or Melamchi from Kathmandu. Even though Trekking Itineraries are always flexible because there are many starting and ending places, it may take a little more or less than the estimated time. The trekking starts and ends in Syabrubesi for Langtang Valley Trek and Tamang Heritage Trek, a small town 120 km from Kathmandu. Also, Helambu Trek starts from Sundarijal 25 km from Thamel, Kathmandu. The main bus station is Machha Pokhari, Kathmandu to the Syabrubesi and it takes 8-9 hours but if you are taking the private vehicle for comfort and pace, it takes 5 to 7 hours but the cost is a little higher.

 Langtang Region Trekking Permit Cost

Langtang Region Trekking lies in Langtang National Park, so there is no need for special permits like in restricted areas (Upper Mustang, Upper Dolpo, Manaslu Region, Nar-Phu Valley, and many more). Our government has instilled only two permits for the Langtang Trek. Both of these permits are compulsory for your trek to Langtang Region. The permits are necessary to be shown on the check post along the Langtang valley trekking route. If you go there without permits, you will have to buy the permit from there with an extra charge (penalty) or you may have to accept punishments as per the law of the Nepal government or you may have to turn back. Those two permits can be bought either from a registered trekking company or Tourism Board (Bhrikuti Mandap, Kathmandu) before going on the trek.


TIMS (Trekker’s Information Management System) is compulsory for everyone to Trek in Nepal. 

It Costs US $ 20 per person per trek

Langtang National Park Entry Permit

It costs the US $ 30 per person/ per trek

 Food and Accommodation in Langtang Region

Langtang Region is the third most popular trekking destination in Nepal after Everest and Annapurna region. Langtang Region trekking trail is well managed and managed by the Langtang National Park and local communities. 

There are lots of accommodations and restaurants along the trekking trail because of the increasing popularity of the trail each year. So, there won’t be difficulty in finding comfortable accommodation in the Langtang region. Almost all tea-houses (lodges) are your best service provider for all travelers. Normally, lodges have private rooms (2 beds in one room) for customers with sharing an indoor bathroom but if you need a luxury lodge, they have luxury facilities too. Only a few places have limited lodges for accommodation. Every different place has different quality of the lodges based on the budget. 

The food menu and food items of the lodges are almost the same. We strongly recommend the typical Nepali dish “Dal-Bhat” (boiled rice, vegetable, lentil soup) but if you like, you can choose other foods from the food menu.  Most of the lodges produce fresh Vegetables in their garden and serve them to the customers. The cooks are trained but the food taste might be a bit different than western. Meat found is generally not fresh in the mountain area so we recommend you to try vegetarian dishes during the Langtang Region Trekking. 

You can buy all types of drinks in the lodges but the prices go high as you go higher. You can drink normal water using purification tablets. We should avoid alcoholic drinks when we go higher.

 Best Season for Langtang Region

There are two main trekking seasons for trekking in Nepal: the Autumn trekking season (September to December) and the spring trekking season (March to May). The weather is perfectly sunny and warm with wonderful mountain views, clean air, and no rain and snow compared to other trekking seasons. 

If you want and wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature and culture, you can do this trip during the winter (January and February) which is also a good option.  The temperature during winter could be a little bit cold for most trekkers but the visibility is not bad.  In the summer season (June to August), it rains but it’s the best time for nature lovers. Therefore, we can say that the best trekking season in Nepal depends on your vacation and preference for the trek. 

Communication in the Langtang Region

There was no mobile network and internet service 2 years ago but it has been solved and nowadays there are good mobile network services and internet services in the whole Langtang region trekking area except few places such as Ganjala Pass Trek. So, the internet service will be available in the whole Region but tea-houses and lodges provide the internet with some extra charge. If you don’t have a Nepali sim card, no worries, our guide will be available to you who will make your communication through his phone to your family and the office at Kathmandu to inform you about the trek conditions; health conditions, destination reached and other issues and information. 

Nowadays, you can get the local SIM card in Kathmandu airport after arrival to use the 3g and 4g internet service because most of the trekking routes in Nepal have a Mobile Network service. If you need Nepali SIM, we can provide it to you for your trekking but you have to tell us before departing for trekking.


High altitude sickness is a common problem in the high Himalayan area when people go to higher elevations. It appears very quick but is preventable. If you have not trekked above three thousand meters, you need prevention of the high altitude sickness.  You need an extra suitable acclimatization day to complete the trip and Walk slowly, drink plenty of water, don’t drink alcohol, go higher and sleep at low elevation as well as spend 2 nights every 500 meters above 3500 meters heights to prevent altitude sickness during the trekking in Nepal.   All our trekking itineraries are flexible with acclimatization days and the priority for your health and safety is to complete the trek without any problem.  We provide you with basic medicine to support emergency rescue if the situation gets worse. 

Hence, every day  inform your Guide or Leader about your health condition and he will respond to decide whether and your overall health condition to continue the trip or return.

Tipping information

The Guide, porter, driver, and all workers who are working in the tourism field, expect some tips during your Tour, Trekking, and other activities in Nepal. Tipping is the judgment of workers from travelers offered at the end of the trek. In general, Travelers tip 10% of their payable amount but you can tip them based on your satisfaction. Tipping motivates the team and inspires them to improve the faults and make travelers’ experiences better.

Trip extension

You can also extend your vacations in Nepal doing different treks or other activities after the completion of the trek. We have many short tour packages and adventure activities such as jungle safari tours in Chitwan National park and Bardiya National Park. Pokhara city, Nagarkot Hiking, Dhampus hiking, or day Rafting trips in Trisuli River are other very popular short-day activities in Nepal. Adventurous activities like paragliding, canoeing, Ultra-light flight, Bungee Jump, and Mountain Biking are also popular. These all packages are extra activities as optional tours and not included in your package cost. These activities are well discounted if done with us after the trip.

Getting There: Nepal 

Between China's Tibet Autonomous Region and India, Nepal is a landlocked Himalayan nation. It has eight of the top ten mountains in the world, including Mount Everest. There are numerous points from China and India where one can enter Nepal by land. Tourist visas for Nepal are available on arrival at all Indian and Chinese borders if you are traveling there by land. There are numerous foreign airlines providing nonstop connecting flights to Nepal if you're arriving by air. Nepal Airlines, Turkish Air, Thai Airways, Gulf Air, Qatar Air, Jet Airways, Air India, Biman Bangladesh, Lufthansa, Oman Air, Travel Dubai, Air Arabia, and Air China are a few of the well-known airlines that fly to Nepal. From China or India, one can also go overland. Please check your flight and get in touch with us before arriving in Nepal. At the airport in Nepal, you can easily obtain a on arrival visa.

Visa and passport information

Except for Indian passport holders, all foreign visitors to Nepal need a visa; however, you must have a passport with a six-month validity date in order to apply for a tourist visa. At the Tribhuvan International Airport and the Chinese-Indian border in Tibet, visas are available on arrival. To apply for a visa to enter Nepal, you must have a color photograph in PP size. Please click this link for more details about Visa Information. 

Money exchange rate and prices

If you're seeking for the best foreign exchange rates and locations in Nepal, you may easily exchange the majority of your foreign currency at a local bank or authorized money exchange facility in a well-known tourist destination. The Nepal Rastra Bank controls all exchange rates (Center Bank of Nepal). You can exchange small amounts of money at the hotel if you want to. Because our banks will not take dirty or old notes, kindly bring clean and fresh notes.

In order to avoid the time-consuming processes associated with cards and traveler's checks, Nepalese people typically prefer cash in hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, and other locations. You can use an ATM to get cash (in Nepali Rupees) if you have a credit or debit card. In the main tourist city, there are a number of ATM counters with 24-hour service. If you use a card, the maximum withdrawal amount is between 30,000 and 35,000 rupees at once, plus a processing fee of 500 rupees. 

You must convert your money in Kathmandu or Pokhara before the hike because the majority of trekking routes do not offer a facility for international currency exchange. Additionally, inquire about the amount of money required for a Himalayan trek from your trekking operator or guide.

Safety and security

When traveling in Nepal, safety and security are crucial issues to consider both on the way to in and out. We are here for you at all times, and we promise to provide the greatest service to all of our cherished clients. Our guides have extensive training in the field of trekking and broad understanding of first aid items. Because it rises more than 4000 m above sea level, it is essential for hiking in Nepal. Because health is crucial, if a trekker becomes ill from the high altitude, our knowledgeable guide discusses the necessary medications and decides to continue the trek while organizing the emergency rescue.

You must be cautious when hiking trails pass one other because they are not wide enough to do so. During the busiest trekking season, there are lots of porters, yaks, mules, and Jokpe along the trail. You must stay on the safe side if you encounter them on a bridge or in a confined space because otherwise they may force you over the edge.

Safe drinking water

For a healthy body while traveling and staying hydrated, clean water is essential. It will be the most effective method of completing the Himalayan journey. If not, getting sick and having diarrhea is simple. Almost everywhere during the Nepalese tea house trip, but not during the camping trek, sells bottled water. Unfortunately, bottled water is very pricey. 

Please bring good water bottles (for boiling water) and water purification tablets or water filter bottles since plastic bottles are detrimental for the environment. Reusable water bottles are a good idea because they help keep the mountain clean. If you are concerned about finding a typical water tap to fill up your bottles in the trekking region of Nepal, they are very simple to locate. It can be found in rivers, streams, and lodges.

Travel insurance and insurance policy

Nepal hiking tours: The difficulty levels of the Himalayas range from easy to tough. As a result of the Himalayan climate changing, there is a risk of high altitude and potential mishap. 

Trekking in the Nepalese Himalayas demands practical trekking abilities at high altitudes (above 4,000 meters), so travel insurance is essential. If an accident occurs during a trip and requires medical attention or evacuation, the cost of returning to a city and receiving treatment may be significant. Therefore, you must ensure that your insurance covers the price of an air ambulance, medical care, and any risks associated with travel, such as delayed flights and lost, stolen, damaged, or missing baggage. Your complete itinerary while visiting Nepal should be covered by your insurance policy. Make sure your insurance policy covers hikes higher than 5,500 meters. If not, you will be responsible for all unforeseen costs associated with your trek through Nepal. 

All trekkers must send a copy of their certificate from their comprehensive travel insurance policy to High Pass Adventure as part of the booking process for trekking and climbing in Nepal.

High altitude sickness information

Mountain sickness is another name for high altitude sickness. You must be aware of high altitude sickness symptoms since they arise rapidly if you hike or ascend to a higher elevation. Here are some details if you're curious as to why it occurs. The air pressure is the main cause of altitude sickness. Your body needs time to adapt to the shift in air pressure when you travel to higher elevations since the air pressure decreases and there is less oxygen present. According to doctors, If you are at sea level, it begins at 8,000 feet (2400 meters).

1) Types 

There are three types of altitude sickness:

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS): it is very common and symptoms feel like a tiredness, dizzy, headache, thirsty, muscle aches, nausea 

High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE): it is effect in the lungs, which can be very dangerous and hard to do life threatening

High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE): it is effective in the brain and most difficult to treat and you need to go to hospital attention the right way. 

2) Cause 

Following are the causes of high altitude sickness:

Generally living near sea level and travel to a high elevation 

Had the sickness before

Climbing quickly

Not being acclimatized to the altitude

Drinking alcohol when you ascend 

Medical problems of heart, nervous or lungs 

3) Symptoms

These symptoms will appear depending on your speed to climb and how hard you push. Symptoms range from normal to serious. They can affect the nervous system, lungs, muscles, and heart.

Here are symptoms of High Altitude Sickness:

Difficulty sleeping




Loss of appetite

Nausea or vomiting

Rapid Pulse (Heart Rate)

Short breath with action

Blue color of skin or gray soft skin 

Chest tightness or blocking


Dry cough or coughing with blood

Cannot walk in a straight line 

4) Prevention 

Important keys to preventing of High Altitude Sickness are:

Climb the mountain gradually. 

Stop every 2,000 feet (600 meters) of climb above 8,000 feet (2,400 meters) and one or two nights sleep there.

Sleep at a lower altitude when possible.

Make sure that you have the ability to quickly descend if needed.

Learn how to recognize early symptoms of mountain sickness.

If you plan on climbing quickly, or climbing to a high altitude, ask your provider about medicines that may help.

If you are at risk for a low red blood cell count (anemia), ask your provider if your planned trip is safe. Also ask if an iron supplement is right for you. Anemia lowers the amount of oxygen in your blood. This makes you more likely to have mountain sickness.

5) While climbing, you should follow these rules:

Drink plenty of water

Climb slowly.

Take it easy

Do not drink alcohol.

Eat regular meals that are high in carbohydrates.

Sleep lower elevation 

Take a medication (diomax) according to doctor

Clients Reviews

Great Company


We had a great guide and great porter for our Langtang Valley Trek. Not only did they coordinate EVERYTHING for the 8 days trek, but also helped with planning and booking the rest of our trip itinerary in Nepal. It made it really stress-free and easy to relax. Thanks for whole High Pass Adventure team a great experience! 

Langtang Trek


I absolutely loved the trek! 
The nature is beautiful and at this time of the year it is not overcrowded by tourists.
The organization was perfect. Purna and his team provided a down jacket and made recommendations about what to bring in advance. 
As a solo trekker I went with Purna, his knowledge, his very good English as well as his people's skills contributed to this brilliant experience.

Trek Through Langtang Valley


I went on an 8-day trek up and down the Langtang Valley with one other friend and a guide. We carried our own packs. Purna and the other guides were extremely kind, helpful, and reliable, and made this a very enjoyable (but challenging) trek. They picked us up from the airport and brought us to our hostel. From then onward, they took care of all the details -- transportation, paperwork, accommodations -- so that we could just enjoy the beautiful mountains and scenery that we had come to see.
