Langtang Valley to Kyanjin Gompa Trek - 749 USD

The Langtang Valley has always been known for its natural beauty. So much so, that in 1976 the region was protected by the creation of Nepal’s first alpine national park – Langtang National Park.

The trek along the Langtang Khola river valley to the historic 700 years old Kyanjin Ghompa, Buddhist monastery, takes visitors through some of Nepal’s most beautiful Himalayan scenery. The trek also provides an opportunity to learn about the Tamang community that traces its heritage back to Tibet and the spread of Buddhism via the high-mountain pass trading routes from Tibet to Nepal and India.

Trekking the Langtang Valley is a beautiful experience at any time of the year. The valley and national park have a huge diversity on flora and fauna from forests with amazing bird life at the lower altitude western end of the valley, to countless very high altitude bare icy Himalayan peaks well above the tree line. In the lower forests, more than 200 species of bird have been recorded. While difficult to spot, you may also fine Himalayan black bear, red panda and Assam macaque. As you trek into the valley it gradually widens to a grassy meadow valley floor that has been home to yak herders for countless generations. At the eastern end of the valley, you will visit a traditional yak cheese factory and monastery and learn more about traditional village life. Higher up the mountain slopes you may catch a rare glimpse of Himalayan tahr and snow leopard.

Everyone treks the Himalaya to see and experience towering mountains whose icy peaks beckon you higher and higher. The Langtang Valley delivers beautiful mountain vistas on bother sides of the valley, with 7,234m Langtang Lirung, and countless neighbouring peaks, towering along the northern side of the valley. To the south is 5,710m Baden-Powell Scout Peak and many more peaks and challenging high passes that rim the valley. The valley is a landscape photographer’s dream. It almost does not matter where you point your camera, the scenery is stunning.

Another great appeal of the Langtang Valley is its easy, but a little bumpy, half-day drive access from Kathmandu and the easy walking trail that does not entail high passes or challenging altitudes. This is the perfect Himalaya introduction trek.

Important Note

Itinerary and Dates: Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary, but as this is adventure travel in a remote mountain region, we cannot guarantee it. Weather conditions and the health of trekkers can all contribute to changes. Your guide, and their Sherpa assistants, will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if necessary. Our aim is to return you safely to Kathmandu in time for your departure flight booking.

Experience Required: This Trek is suitable for keen walkers who are able to walk for 6 – 7 hours each day, with a light rucksack. Some of the days are quite long, and walking feels more strenuous at altitude. Generally, the trail is a good quality, but occasionally it will be uneven and rocky.

Food & Accommodation: You will be accommodated in a teahouse each night, unless the itinerary stipulates tent camping is necessary on some nights. Teahouses are simple, locally-run guesthouses with twin-share or single rooms. Toilets and showers are of varying standards. Typical food available for lunch and dinner is Nepali rice & lentils, pasta, potato dishes, soups or pizzas. Delicious pancakes, porridge, toast and eggs are the main breakfast fare, while tea, coffee and hot chocolate are always available. You will probably be pleasantly surprised by the variety of food at the lodges.

What about our luggage: One porter will be shared between two trekking clients. Porters will carry a maximum of 12kgs per client. If you wish to, you may keep excess clothing and items in a storage room at your Kathmandu hotel.

What will the temperature be like: The weather obviously varies considerably by season and may also change drastically within a single day, particularly at high altitude. If your itinerary takes you above 3,000m need to be prepared for conditions that may range from -10 to 25 degrees on any day. Some useful weather data is available here: https://bit.ly/3vi7rHX You will also need good protections from sun and wind exposure. Contact us for a suggested trek packing list to suit your itinerary.

How much money should we bring: You will need to carry Nepali Rupee to pay for things not covered by your itinerary package. This may include bottled water; evening hot showers; additional food treats; additional hot drinks; equipment replacement or repairs; battery charging and gifts and tips. Shopping can also be done on your last day in Thamel. Talk with us in our office before departing on your trek and we can provide more advice and currency exchange.

What about Acute Mountaineering Sickness (AMS): AMS is essentially impossible to predict. Some people are affected, and other not. Only a very small percentage of people suffer serious effects. Effects may become apparent at any altitude, not just at the extremes of your itinerary.

Signs of AMS includes:

  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Drowsiness
  • Flatulence
  • Peripheral Edema (Swelling of extremities)
  • Fluctuation in body temperature

Prevention of AMS:

  • Adequate rest prior to the trek.
  • Adequate hydration maintained throughout the trek.
  • Adequate salt and sugar in your bloodstream. So, eat plenty and don’t skip meals.
  • Adequate warmth. Use clothing layers to maintain warmth without sweating excessively. Controlled and regular breathing. Breathe deeply from the diaphragm to use all your lung capacity. Try and walk to a pace that maintains controlled and steady breathing. Breathe through your nose to protect you throat from drying. Consider wearing a muff over your mouth and nose at high altitudes.
  • Managed exertion. Trekking is not a race to the next pass or teahouse. Go at a constant, manageable pace, do not chase after the person in front. Keep a slow steady pace rather than pushing too hard and needing to stop frequently. Take time to enjoy the scenery.
