Langtang Valley trekking is one of the true Himalayan gems of Nepal.

Traversing in this region will be one of the greatest opportunities to witness and explore the spirituality, culture, and natural marvels of the region which is once a lifetime experience.

Lying north of the Kathmandu valley, Langtang is a splendid trekking destination and also the closest trekking destination to the lap of the Himalayas from the main city of Kathamndu, which brings you close to nature. Langtang region which is extended to an area of 1710 sq. km is the first conserved national park of Nepal, which is the abode for more than 1000 species of plants, more than 150 species of birds, and numerous mammals. The national bird of Nepal- Danphe (Pheasant) can also be spotted in this area. Above all the region itself is home to Red Panda and Wild Boar, inhabited by a very light population and less trodden trails make the trekking experience peaceful and enjoyable. Langtang region carries a legendary myth stating that the valley was discovered by a person who was looking for his lost yak. So, the region was named Langtang in the Tibetan language, ‘Lang’ mean yak, and ‘Tang’ means to follow. Easy trails, diverse terrain, huge flora and fauna, ancient culture, and traditional lifestyle makes this region a true gem for travel enthusiast and nature lovers.

Langtang region was one of the highly devastating regions of Nepal during the earthquake of 2015 AD. Most of the infrastructure around the region was badly damaged during the earthquake, resulting in trekkers stopping their exploration into the region due to a lack of tea houses and accessible trails but this has become a story to orate. With the effort of local people, government, and various organizations, a lot of infrastructures have been restored. After the completion of the restoration of the region, the government has reopened trekking into the Langtang region and has officially declared it safe for outing activities and local people are readily opening their arms to welcome travelers into their beautiful houses.

Trekking to the Langtang valley is a fabulous journey that brings you close to the Himalayas over 7000 meters including Langtang Lirung (7,200m), Ganesh Himal (7,600m) and Langtang-II (7,227m), etc. Throughout the trail, one can enjoy a magnificent perspective of Himalayan ranges like Tserko Ri (5033m), Kyanjin Ri, Ganchhenpo (6388m), Dorje Lakpa (6990m), and Laure Binayak pass (4,609m).

Langtang Himalayan Trekking with Kathmandu- Pokhara- Chitwan Tour is a pleasant trip to one of the delightful valleys of Langtang, the city of Lake – Pokhara, and the dense forest of Chitwan. The trekking begins from the lower Langtang valley i.e. Syabrubesi and takes you through the forest, farmlands, and small settlements of people of Tibetan Origin. This trail was one of the important trading routes with Tibet and still, it is because of this, that one can see the great influence of the Tibetan culture in this region. As we traverse through the Langtang Valley a part of the trek will take us through the second largest national park of Nepal, Langtang National park. Walking through the forest wildlife is never easy to be spotted however with great luck, you can have a chance to see some interesting animals and birds. Among the wildlife found in this region, musk deer, pica, and monkeys are most commonly found throughout the forest. Once we reach the Langtang village, we hike up the trail to reach Kyangjinga Gompa, also popular for the yak cheese factory. From this location, one can enjoy the picturesque view of numerous glaciers, Himalayan peaks, and huts across the hills. After Langtang Valley, we will drive to the dense forest of Chitwan to experience Asian wildlife activities and a jungle safari to explore numerous flora and fauna along with the Royal Bengal Tiger. Afterward, our tour will take us through the beautiful touristic city of Pokhara. After enjoying a day in Pokhara we will drive back to Kathmandu where our exciting tour will come to its conclusion.

Show Detail ItineraryClose Detail Itinerary

In accordance with your flight schedule, we will be at the Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu to extend a warm welcome to you in our beautiful country for the beautiful trip. After exchanging warm welcome greetings at the arrival section, we will lead you to our vehicle to transfer you to our trip hotel. It’s a day at complete leisure on your own to relax the jetlag. But we definitely help you with the information to go around in case you’d like to do so.

We spend a full day in Kathmandu today which will be a necessary acclimatization day as well. Early in the morning after breakfast, we will meet for a trip briefing where we will talk about this amazing trip in detail and answer your questions if you have any. After the brief meeting is over, we are taking you for an amazing cultural sightseeing tour of heritage sites in Kathmandu valley.

The sites we take you for the sightseeing today include Swoyambhunath - the oldest monument in Kathmandu valley, Kathmandu Durbar Square – to see the temple of Living Goddess and other medieval architectural wonders, Pashupatinath – to immerse into Hindu death rites on the bank of a holy river, and Boudhanath – a massive Buddhist shrine considered as the biggest in the world.

We will leave Kathmandu today on an overland journey to Syabrubesi in the morning. The highway runs winding past several rural towns and heads towards Trishuli Bazar. After a break in Trishuli bazaar, our road trip heads towards Syabrubesi, the destination for today.

The road trip today brings us an insight into the rural lifestyle in Nepal. The drive along the beautiful Trishuli River gives an idea of the richness of Nepal in natural resources. Fertile farmland on the river plateau, terraced fields, and roadside towns are apt examples to give some glimpses of Nepalese countryside life.

After having breakfast, we will be checking and questioning our clients if they have any problems with their physical state. After finishing up with our packing and stuff, we will set off on an exciting trekking journey today from Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel. We cover the elevation of about 1,000 meters on the very first day of our trek in the Langtang region.

The walk introduces us to the mountain cultures of the region and the amazing views and landscapes that heighten our excitement about the following trekking days. Although the name, of our destination today, sounds like the name of a hotel, it’s the name of an overnight place on the Langtang Valley trekking route. Lama Hotel serves as an ideal location to spend overnight after a full day of trekking journey on the mountain trail. 

We will gain another significant elevation level today when we trek to Langtang valley today. Before the devastating earthquake in 2015, trekkers used to stay in the Langtang village itself. But as the village was swept away in a landslide during the earthquake, the settlement has been shifted to a new and safe place.

The walk will bring lots of cultural and spiritual experiences in addition to the natural marvels. Buddhist prayer flags, Mani walls, and chhortens along the trail significantly signal the dominance of Buddhist culture in the region. It’s a beautiful day full of fascinating encounters along the trail.

The trek on this day will take us further higher up to Kaynjing Gompa. The beautiful day trek reveals some nonpareil sights to us along the trail. The influence of Buddhism and ethnic culture clearly sets the region apart from the lower region that we traveled through. When we reach Kyanjing Gompa for our overnight stay, we can explore an ancient and beautiful Buddhist monastery, the Kyanjing Gompa. The monastery is one of the most important spiritual sites in the Langtang region. 

We will set off on an early morning hike to Kyanjing RI at the elevation of 4,350 meters above sea level. This elevation will put us at the highest altitude of our trek. Kyanjing RI offers a spectacular sight of the panoramic Langtang range. We enjoy the breathtaking view of mountain peaks and beautiful sunrise and hike down back towards Lama Hotel. It’s a long day walk today adding the early morning Kyanjing RI hike to the walk to Lama Hotel.

It’s the last day of the trekking portion of this trip. We will trek back down to Syabrubesi today to end the trek. As we will walk back down on the same trail that we took on the way up, we will see the wonders of the place from a different angle and perspective and also will have a chance to get closer to the cultural riches of the place. Once we are in Syabrubesi, we will have time to explore this beautiful, small town for the rest of the day as we are staying there overnight. 

After divine trekking in the peaceful and serene environment of Langtang, it's now time to explore the wildlife of Chitwan. Waking up early we will have breakfast and have one last glace of the Langtang. A seven-hour drive from Syabrubesi will take us to the dense forest of Chitwan for some adventure.

Chitwan National Park which is extended in an area of 932 sq. km is the first national park in Nepal. Located in the subtropical inner Terai lowland this place is the home to more than 700 species of wildlife and a not yet fully surveyed number of butterfly, moth, and insect species. Apart from King Cobra and Rock python, 17 other species of snakes, starred tortoise, and monitor lizards occur. The Narayani-Rapti river system, their small tributaries, and myriads of oxbow lakes is a habitat for 113 recorded species of fish and mugger crocodiles.

Once we arrive at the hotel in Chitwan, we will check-in in the hotel and get refreshed. In the evening we will meet to discuss the schedule for tomorrow. After that, you can go around the city on your own to explore more of this beautiful city.

We spend a full day here at Chitwan exploring the wildlife. We go for the activities like elephant back safari, canoe ride, jungle walk, bird watching, ethnic village tour, etc. as per the schedule. Our exploration of the day brings us possible encounters with one-horned rhinoceros, deer, crocodiles, wild boar, Bengal tiger, monkeys, and several species of birds. The day is going to be full of wildlife adventures inside the forest there. We also go for a wonderful cultural show of the ethnic Tharu people in the evening if we haven’t done it the previous night.

After an amazing exploration of the wildlife at Chitwan, we are driving to Pokhara today for an immersion in the natural beauty of Pokhara. About four hours of drive from Chitwan takes us to the beautiful lake city of Pokhara where we will indulge in several different activities.

The stretch of the highway goes through beautiful places and eventually reaches Pokhara where the breathtaking Annapurna panorama in the Himalayas welcomes us on a clear day. Once we reach Pokhara, we go for a row boating tour of about an hour. The peaceful indulgence in boating on the lake will refresh us from the tiredness of driving along the bumpy road.

Our day starts very early in the morning. We set our wake-up alarm at the fixed time and get ready for a drive to Sarangkot hill to witness a spectacular sunrise over the Annapurna range. We reach Sarangkot after about half an hour of drive to enjoy a close-up, panoramic view of the mountain peaks in the Annapurna range. When the sun rises and pours its rays over the mountains, they look overwhelming.

We drive back to the hotel for breakfast after sunrise. We have a free half-day to relax and wander around the lakeside and also to go for some adventure activities if you like to. We go for another sightseeing tour after the lunch hour. We go to visit Davis falls, Gupteshwor cave, and a Tibetan refugee camp. We return back to Pokhara and take an easy time on our own.

After breakfast, we will drive you back to Kathmandu. On the way, you can see the beautiful Landscape, River View. You will be staying Overnight at Arushi Boutique Hotel in Kathmandu.

NOTE: You can also fly to Kathmandu however the airfare will be an additional cost. The flight will take 30 minutes or can extend your stay in Pokhara on your own if you have extra time.

    On the last day of this trip, we drive you to the airport as per your flight schedule back to home or onward destination. If you have extra time, then Himalayan Scenery Treks can probably arrange for you another program. We hope that you enjoyed the Adventurous trip to Nepal and hope to see you again for another adventure soon.

    Hotel and Accommodation:

    Trek to the Himalayas is one of the favorite destinations for travel enthusiasts and adventure seekers all around the globe. Although the Himalayan region of Nepal is the most popular trekking destination in the world; there are a lot of things people don’t have a clue. While trekking to the high mountain region, you will not find the hotels and accommodation as you see in the city areas. The hotels and accommodation around the high Himalayan have fewer services and facilities. The hot shower may turn out to be simply a bucket of lukewarm water and the toilet may be a latrine behind the hotel. The private room can be a wooden cell with no furniture except a bed, mattress, and curtain in place of the door. So, while trekking to the mountainous region of Nepal, you need to be ready to stay in the less fancy and minimum facilitated hotels.

    We provide you with the 2 to 3-star standard hotel while you are at Kathmandu (i.e. for 3 Nights). During your Langtang Valley Trekking, we provide you with the basic lodges and tea houses for your accommodation. The room of these lodges and tea houses are less fancier with just a bed, a pillow and a blanket. We put us every effort to make your trek as cozy as possible. However, you need to stay flexible in some cases. We will accommodate the groups in local lodge available each day. We send the porters ahead of us to pre-book the room for the next day (rooms cannot be pre-booked on all places).

    In Kathmandu beside the 2 / 3 stars hotel, some 4 / 5 - star luxury accommodation is also available. If you want to change the accommodation plan to the luxury, please do let us know so that we can arrange and book the hotel for you for your Kathmandu stay.

    All the food and Beverages included on the package of Langtang Himalayan Trek and Kathmandu Chitwan Pokhara Tourare provided by the company itself.
