Langtang Valley Trek is a short and relatively easy trek in Langtang Valley with stunning panoramas of two major Himalayan Ranges, Langtang and Ganesh. Langtang Valley Trek is in the valley of this very famous and beautiful range around Langtang Himal Range in the central part of the country. Diverse flora and fauna can also be observed with equally diverse culture of different ethnic groups on this trek. Langtang Valley Trek also stands out as one of the popular treks in the country, especially due to hospitality shown in the region.This is the trekking holidays travelers how have short and limited time fully able to enjoy the unique culture and great Himalayan peaks.
It is a relatively easy and short trek with Tsergo Ri (a viewpoint at 5033 meters) being the major attraction of the trek. Tsergo Ri offers views of Langtang Lirung (7227 meters), Dorje Lhakpa (6966 meters), Yala Peak (5520 meters), Shishapangma and many other smaller peaks. Equally breathtaking views of Ganesh Himal Range can be enjoyed at the beginning of Langtang Valley Trek.
Langtang Valley Trek starts and passes through villages with terraced fields of paddy, corns, millet etc (depending upon the season). Slowly it starts to go through the Rhododendron jungles and then on to meadows and pastures with yaks, and at last to the alpine vegetation near Langtang. The change in culture and religion is also on show as the landscape changes, with increasing number of monasteries and Mane walls as the trek goes higher. At Kyanjin Gomba (the final village at the end of village), one can really enjoy the beauty of Langtang Valley Trek.
Because of easy accessibility, this trek can be done any time in the year but March and April are the best months, as the flowers bloom at this time around the year and jungles full of Rhododendron flowers, in particular is something one shouldn't miss. Although rare to spot, wildlife including migratory birds, deer monkeys, Himalayan Thars, Himalayan Red Panda can be found in the Langtang valley.

A perfect two treks in Nepa
Where to even begin...in traveling around the world for the last 8 months, our two week-long treks (first Langtang Valley, and second Mohare Danda community trek to Poon Hill) were hands down the best experiences we have had! From our first email to Himal, to our final sad goodbye to our wonderful guide Tek Babu Gurung, the whole experience was perfect.
Himal was always extremely quick to respond to emails and answer questions. When he knew how nervous I was about trekking (I have a fear of heights) he even waited until we were in Kathmandu and sent a car to pick us up from our hotel and bring us to his office so we could talk in person and address my concerns more easily! We never once felt pressured to book anything, and he was very understanding and easy to talk to. The prices were also very reasonable, and the company treats their guides and porters well, which was important to us when selecting a company. So we happily booked our first trek to the Langtang Valley. Our guide Tek, and porter Purna were absolutely wonderful.
They were the most kind and positive people, and were the reason we had such a good time on the trek. We were supplied with endless snacks, fruit, masala tea, and delicious meals. Tek always made sure we stayed at the best and most comfortable tea house, that we were hiking at a pace we could manage, and took the time to enjoy it and take plenty of pictures. He also taught us so much about the area, the different mountains, and his culture. The whole trek went perfectly, and we had such fun relaxing and playing card games with them in the evenings, and enjoying the beautiful scenery during the day. In fact, we had such a wonderful time that we immediately booked a second trek with Tek to Mohare Danda and Poon Hill. Once again, everything from the private transport, to the tea houses, to the local porter we hired went perfectly. I can’t overstate what a wonderful guide Tek is. We felt so well taken care of, and enjoyed every minute of our two weeks with him. We were so sad to say goodbye to our friend, and will absolutely be coming back in the future for more treks with him. I cannot recommend this company highly enough! Thank you for a wonderful introduction to Nepal! December - 2018.
We used Visit Himalaya Treks on the recommendation of friends who had worked with them a year earlier. From the start Himal was very helpful & responsive to any questions or requests we had. Our guide, Ngima, and porter, Sambhu, were both very friendly & helpful throughout the trek, and despite a few little hiccups (dodgy knees & bad colds for a couple of days!), we had a good time. We certainly highly recommend Himal & his team at Visit Himalaya treks. April – 2018.

My Guide Rajan takes care with meals/accommodation, and Himal (Visit Himalaya Treks) organize very professionally. I was happy that could all be organize as such short notice. I would be happy to recommend you to others...I don’t know when I will be back in Nepal but I’II catches them again. Thank you very much Himal for all. 16th Jun, 2010.
Langtang valley 10 days hike with Visit Himalaya Treks
Hi Himal & Team. Thank you for well organizing our Langtang Trek. We enjoyed so much our 2oth wedding anniversary trip. Himal and team at Visit Himalaya Treks are first class individuals and run a first class trekking company. Everything was great from the lodging, to the guides, to beauty of the magnificent white sheen of the Himalayan mountain tops. The best thing is that we always felt taken care of and looked after, which does give you peace-of-mind and the luxury of complete mental relaxation. We had a wonderful time for our 20th wedding anniversary (VHT even surprised us with a cake and party that night. Awesome!). Highly recommend this company for trekking and site seeing. We miss you guys!
