Langtang is a region in Nepal to the north of Kathmandu and nearby Tibet. The valley is dominated by Langtang Lirung [7246m], the highest peak in the area. Trekking takes you through the forests of the Langtang valley to the alpine paddocks and yak meadows around Kyanjing. After an ascent of Kyanjing Ri, from where the 360 degree mountain views are truly outstanding, we retrace our route back down the valley to Syabrubesi and then drive back to Kathmandu.

This Langtang trek on the way to the base of Langtang Himal, north of Kathmandu valley, offers the shortest approach to snowy mountains from Kathmandu. The Langtang trek starts from Syabrubesi after a nine hours drive from Kathmandu. Following a route upstream Bhote Koshi river through cultural Tamang communities, lavish green forests and the wide spread Kyanjing valley fenced by snowy peaks from all fours sides, takes you up to Kyanjing at 3800 meter, where you get an opportunity to ascend Kyanjing Ri (4350m.), from where the 360 degree mountain views are truly panoramic. After an ascent of Kyanjing Ri, we retrace our route back down the valley to Syabrubesi and then drive back to Kathmandu. Due to gradual ascent along the river valley this Langtang trek is not considered strenuous, but yet, it remains challenging as it reaches an altitude of 3800 meter at Kyanjing. The Langtang trek can be done any time of the year except during monsoons.

Langtang Trek

(5/5)

This was my second trek in Nepal, again with the great personal touch from Shiba at Life Himalaya trekking.
This time I choose the Langtang trek, an area that was hit badly in the 2015 earthquake, but is now back up and running and really needs the tourist numbers to return.
The scenery was of course stunning, and I feel there is more of an authentic experience of Nepalese mountain life than some of the bigger more commercial treks available.
As ever, Shiba was on hand to deliver a flexible itinerary and offered his own advice and knowledge on what would be best to do and visit.
This personal and flexible approach is key for me; as is the fact that Life Himalaya works in conjunction with a local charity (The Ganesh Himal Foundation) in delivering improvements in education and facilities for rural Nepalese people.
I hope to use Life Himalaya many more times in the future.
And again, I would strongly advise that you consider the Langtang trekking region.

“Professional, Experienced and Trusted Operator”

(5/5)

We have known Shiba for 6 years. He is the Owner/Operator of this business with over 15 years of experience in the trekking in Nepal. As a family of 4 or just my wife and I we have done the

Annapurna Panorama , Poonhill, Langtang Valley, Tamang Heritage and Gosaikunda treks

with Shiba or his many experienced and knowledgeable staff. He will supply quotes over the net very quickly. We made so many changes but never felt it was a problem for Shiba to keep requoting. Shiba is not all about making money, he's more concerned that your trip is everything you want and developing long term relationships. We will only ever use Shiba's Company when we go trekking in Nepal because we trust him and his Company.
