About Trip

The Langtang region is a vastly underrated trekking region in Nepal.  Most visitors hear about the Annapurna and Everest regions and book their trips without seeking out the lesser known, but equally amazing areas of Nepal.  Langtang is a less touristy, but equally stunning trekking region of our Nepal.  You’ll get to experience all the beauty of the Himalaya on a less crowded trail, giving you a more personal connection to the villagers in the region.  Our Langtang Circuit Trek gives you a full taste of the wonders of Langtang.  From warm, friendly Tamang villages to high alpine lakes to jaw-dropping rugged peaks, you will be in constant awe while moving along the Langtang Circuit trail.

The trek begins with a 7-8 hourdrive from Kathmandu to the exquisite town of Syabrubesi.  The Langtang Valley, isolated and high in elevation, is home to the hospitable Tamang ethnic group.  Their culture is similar to their northern neighbors in Tibet.  The area is full of monuments of Tibetan Buddhism, adding character and charm to the trail.  We begin by passing through small villages, farmlands, and streams, which are complimented by vibrant pine, bamboo, and rhododendron forests, the abode of the elusive Red Panda and other animals. Soon, you arrive at the alpine pastures of Kyanjin Gompa, a spiritual center with incredible mountain views. From here, wehike up to KyanjinRi (4750m), feeling like we’re on top of the world.  Another highlihgt is reaching the revered Gosaikunda Lake, a famous pilgrimage destination for Buddhists and Hindus alike.  It is said that this spellbinding lake used to be the abode of Lord Shiva.  After exploring the lake, we descend through Tamangto Sundarijal and drive back to Kathmandu.  The exciting Langtang Circuit Trek pursues the remote, sparsely populated trail, passing all the pristine, natural marvels that the Langtang region offers.

Trekking is possible throughout the year, but Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) provide the best weather.  During the Spring, there is a bit more color and the rhododendrons are blooming, and in the Autumn months, the skies are generally clearer.  The Langtang Circuit Trek requires fitness and acclimatization to avoid acute mountain sickness. Shikhar Adventure arranges the trek with complete management. Please, feel free to contact us for more detailed information.
