The Langtang Valley Trek is easily accessible from Kathmandu and is a popular trekking destination in Nepal. Langtang valley trek is situated in Langtang National Park in the northern part of Nepal; the duration of the Langtang Valley Trek is around 7 to 10 days. It offers stunning views of snow-capped peaks, lush forests, alpine meadows, glacial and diverse cultures.
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" in Nepal. 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 Naya 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.
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.
Langtang Valley Trek is an easy to moderate trek level where you have to walk 5-7 hrs a day with gradually increasing altitude.

Health Requirements (Basic First Aid Kit)
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
