The region is a wonderland for animal lovers and bird watchers as the vast jungle terrains and open pasturelands present the stunning features of the Langtang Valley Trek. Overall, traveling to this region will surely enjoy their time by indulging in the Himalayas and jungles’ serene beauty.

Langtang Valley Trek Difficulty

This is a trip for those who enjoy a moderate hike. The courses ascend gradually and help the trekkers adjust to the altitude quickly. Furthermore, our expert guides and leaders will always be there to accompany you and ensure you feel supported as you hike. The ten-day expedition will take you to the highest point of our trek in Chorkari Ri at 5050 meters. Chorkari Ri is an excellent point to see the Lantang range and its endearing mountains real close.

Despite the Langtang Valley being a moderate hike, we suggest you dedicate some time to personal fitness and exercise. You will easily find yourself walking for about 4-5 hours daily and on high elevations. So to ensure you have the best experience on this trek, we think getting pre-trained for at least a month before your actual trek is best!

Best time for Langtang Valley Trek

The weather is one of the most important factors when planning for the Lantang Valley Trek. The best time to visit the area is in the spring and autumn season as it provides the most scenic views. During the monsoon season, the roads are wet and prone to landslides. However, if you are keen to witness the valley with the lush and misty environment with less crowd, you would not mind the monsoon season.

Likewise, the views of the mountain are terrific during the winter season. The spring and autumn seasons are best for clear skies, greenery, shades of red and pink scattered in the flora all around. While the summer days are of scorching hot sun and cool breeze at nights, the mountain views are most spectacular during the winter season.

Is Langtang Valley trek the right journey to be on?

Many treks in Nepal might appeal to you more than the Langtang valley trek. Everyone has their preferences, but one can expect a trip suitable for beginners when trekking in Langtang. It is best for people who want to explore the culture, region, and landscapes at a comfortable pace as a trek. In 10 days, the trekkers can find themselves amongst gigantic snow-capped mountains, intriguing landscapes, and warm hospitality.

Thank you Nepal Hiking Team for such a beautiful trekking experience. It was a pleasure to deal with Mr. Ganga at Nepal Hiking Team. Over the last conversations with the tram, planning for Langtang Valley Trek has been really easy thanks to their highly responsive emails. Every small detail was paid attention to. I was able to trek in a very short notice and thanks to the team for making everything possible. My Langtang Valley Trek was handled with amazing flexibility and my guide was just as awesome. From the views to the hospitality, everything was the best.

They treated me amazingly the whole trek and whenever I had some requirements, they tended to it immediately. I strongly recommend their service to anyone looking forward to trekking in Nepal. It is very important to have a reliable service provider while trekking in a different country. With Nepal Hiking Team you couldn’t ask for more.

The Valley is pretty isolated, and this was one of the things that I noticed about the trek. The valley and the villages were quite far from each other, and that was the best part of the trek for me because it gave me a chance to enjoy the long drive and hikes through lovely forests and rivers and go over exhilarating suspension brides! The Langtang Valley Trek is a beautiful trekking experience, and I had the best time trekking in the valley, watching the views of the mountains and becoming a part of the beauty of the nature that this place has, even if it was for a limited amount of time. The natural beauty of this place is the best part of the trek, and also, the visit to the cheese factory was also pretty exciting! I loved tasting the cheese, and they even gave me complimentary blocks of cheese to take home, it was quite lovely! The whole trekking journey is the best thing and I absolutely enjoyed the whole scenarios during the trek. The hike to the monastery was quite attractive, and the rivers and the little streams that we came across the trek were all lovely to see and experience. Langtang Valley Trek was made even more amazing by our guide, Baban, who was a charm to be around and he helped us out a lot throughout the trek. It was all done in a fair and reasonable price as well, and I appreciate it very much!

I was picked up from the airport by Rajendra, the guide, and was then taken to my hotel, from where I started my trekking journey of the Langtang Valley. It was beautiful, and I really enjoyed it. The most stood-out aspect of the trek for me would definitely be the culture and the lifestyle of the people in that area. I mean, the natural beauty itself is quite wonderful and amazing, but, for me personally, I loved the whole experience of the people and talking to them and hearing their stories. The visit to the monastery there was enlightening and I learned a lot about the cultural aspects of the valley. I liked their hassle free day to day life and it’s a proven commodity for me really, that this is the kind of hassle free life is the one I would like to lead once I am old and retired! A life in valley among the Himalayas would be the ultimate dream-come-true for me! But, for now, I was satisfied with just visiting this paradise. The very atmosphere at the valley and the trekking journey has a life of its own, and its tranquility is spell-binding. Nepal Hiking Team, as expected, delivered the best services to me, and all of the proper arrangements were all done brilliantly. They did a wonderful job with the trekking journey and I enjoyed every moment of it!

I had Nepal Hiking Team make a customized itinerary for me for the Langtang Valley Trek. And everything was done all in accordance to my convenience, and that is one of the many features I loved about Nepal Hiking Team. The guide that provided to me for my Langtang Valley trip was also professional and helped us along the trek very much. Everything was done very smoothly, without much hassle and bother. I did not have to worry about anything; the people from Nepal Hiking Team took care of everything, like the accommodations, and the porters and the equipment. As a result, I was left to enjoy the trek and its sceneries without having to constantly worry about anything else. The trek itself was amazing, and I loved every moment of it.

I made many acquaintances throughout the trek, with the local trekkers as well and other trekkers along the journey, and it was simply wonderful. This is truly a once in a life time opportunity to learn about exotic lands and the valley of Langtang definitely takes the cake on this one! The beautiful views of the mountains are utterly ravishing and the natural beauty of the place is just wow! I don’t even know how to describe it in words really! The vast pasturelands and the sight of horses and yaks just grazing on those serene grasslands is something that’s straight out of a wonderful Studio Ghibli movie, it was so pretty! The whole place reminded me of “Howl’s Moving Castle”; it was just so reminiscing of the scene between How l and Sophie with the daffodil flowers swaying gently in the wind. Langtang Valley Trek made me feel like I was in that feature film! So, yeah, definitely check the place out and Nepal Hiking Team definitely has my approval from the trek because of their consistency and the services that they provided.

I chose to do the Langtang Valley Trek in Nepal because it was recommended to me, and because I supposed it would be very beautiful. And I was absolutely proven right! The whole trekking journey is filled to the brim with lovely sights of nature, wonderful tranquil visits to the lakes and the monastery and various temples along the trails. The natural beauty is phenomenal and it all comes together perfectly with the wonderful views of the mountains in the distance. The mountains are so beautiful, and the compliment it gets from the wonderful environment at Langtang is breath-taking! I really enjoyed my trekking journey with Nepal Hiking Team in the Langtang Valley, and I loved learning about the various cultures and the stories behind the temples, it was all very fascinating. I liked my services of the provided accommodations as well, and the people from the travel company were all very helpful and extremely co-operative. Smoothly done Nepal Hiking Team!
