The Langtanag Valley lies closer to Kathmandu then other trekking region, and is lesser used by both trekkers and local. The Langtang Valley is located only 19 miles north of Kathmandu, close to the border of Tibet. The valley is dominated by Langtang Lirung [7246m], the highest peak in the area. This is a superb introduction to trekking in Nepal among some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole country. Due to gradual assent along the river valley this Langtang trek is not considered strenuous, yet, it remains challenging as it reaches the altitude of 3800 meter at Kyangjin and Kyangjin Ri at 4350 meter. This Langtang trek can be done any time of the year except during monsoon.
Just after the monsoon, this trek gives superb views of the great peak of Langtang Lirung (7246m) which dominates the upper valley and straddles the Tibetan border.
In spring time it is an ideal place to spot birds and flower of Nepal. According to a legend. Lama following a runaway Yak discovered the valley, hence the Name Lang (Tibetan Name of Yak) Tang (more currently Dang Means to follow). There are good opportunities for moderate climbing excursion here, you should allow some extra days for exploration of the extensive glacier system.
this Langtang trek towards 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 6-7 hrs drive from Kathmandu. Following a trail upstream Bhote Kosi river through ethnic Tamang villages, lush green forests and wide spread Kyangin valley surrounded by snowy peaks from all fours sides, takes you up to Kyangin at 3800 meter, where you can have a opportunity to ascend Kyangjin Ri [4350m.], from where the 360 degree mountain views are truly spectacular. After an ascent of Kyangjin Ri, we retrace our route back down the valley to Syabru Besi and then drive back to Kathmandu.

Day 03 Kathmandu to Syabru Besi [2000m]
An early departure for the 7 hour drive to our starting point at the foot of the Langtang Valley. The road takes a spectacular route, climbing high over the ridges to escape the Kathmandu Valley and providing us with a superb panorama of the Himalaya, including the Annapurnas, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and the peaks of the Langtang region that we will soon become better acquainted with.
Day 04 Syabru Besi to Lama hotel [2748M]
The trail initially crosses the Bhote Kosi, flowing down from Tibet, literally a few kilometres away, and then gradually climbs up through the sub-tropical forests, teeming with bird-life, to join the trail from Syabru. We then follow the river, climbing through uninhabited forest of oak and rhododendron and maybe catching a glimpse of langur monkeys roaming through the trees. We climb along a steep trail to our camp in the forest.
Day 05 Lama hotel to Lantang village [3500M]
As we continue climbing there are occasional glimpses of Langtang Lirung between the trees. At Ghora Tabela [3000m], the trail emerges from the forest. Once there was a Tibetan resettlement project here, but now it is a Nepalese army post though it has no permanent inhabitants. The trail continues to climb gently and the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during the summer months. There is a monastery which we can visit shortly before arriving at the village of Langtang, the headquarters of the Langtang National Park. The houses of Langtang and its neighbouring villages are of the flat-roofed Tibetan style, surrounded by stone walls enclosing fields of buckwheat, potatoes, wheat, turnips and barley.
Day 06 Trek Langtang village to Kyagjin [3800M]
The trail climbs gradually through small villages and yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyangjin. Here there is a small monastery and a government-operated cheese factory. We should arrive at Kyangjin by lunch time allowing time to acclimatise and explore the area. It is a dramatic setting, with snow covered peaks surrounding us in all directions.
Day 07 Rest day in Kyangjin
A day to rest and explore the area. We can visit the monastery and the cheese factory, walk up the moraine to see the spectacular ice faces and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung or ascend Kyangjin Ri [4350m], directly behind the village, for a breath-taking panorama of the Langtang peaks.
Day 08Kyangjin to Lama hotel [2784M]
From Kyangjin we retrace our route, following the Langtang Khola to Langtang village and on to Ghora Tabela. After lunch we continue the steep descent to Lama Hotel.
