Langtang valley trek is one of the least trekked, yet one of the calm and scenic trekking areas located north of the Kathmandu Valley. The route goes through traditional and ethnic villages and untouched forests on the way to the peaks of Langtang-Lirung. The route is not so steep and the altitude is relatively low that anyone who is physically fit can do this trek easily.
Walking along the Langtang River crossing many forests and hills, ascending the trail experiencing the changes in vegetation and hearing the rhythms of different birds, hoping to see the different animals including endangered Red Panda, observing the lifestyle of locals and their hospitality and occasionally appearance of the Himalayas in the trail energize you as such that you will reach in the destination without feeling tired. After reaching the Kyangjin Gompa, view of the massive Langtang Lirung and other peaks as well as glacier take away all your hardness.

I trekked the beautiful Langtang Valley in May and arranged everything through Success Adventure trekking company. They thought of everything down to the finest detail. The trip started with a long bumpy drive to Syabrubesi, which is probably the worst part if the trip. My guide Kapil was extremely helpful throughout the trip and was full of local knowledge, which was useful when it came to choosing which guest house to stay in. Kapil knew the ones with the best food!
We slowly made our way up the valley, always at my pace. There was never any pressure on time. Kyanging Gumba at the top is beautiful and you have 2 days up there to enjoy the views and climb up to one of the peaks. A visit to the bakery is a must! When I was feeling unwell due to altitude sickness Kapil knew exactly what to do. If you are short of time in Nepal Langtang Valley is a perfect option. I highly recommend booking through Success Adventure treks as they tailored the trip to my needs and budget. kapil was the perfect guide. Despite my pace being slow he never seemed to mind.
