Langtang Trek

Langtang Trek in Nepal takes you into a delightful expedition inside one of the discreet Himalayas areas of Nepal which cater for all kinds of trekkers. The Langtang valley in Nepal shares borders with Tibet in the north; hence, the region is highly influenced by the lifestyle, culture, and tradition of its northern counterpart. It is home to Langtang National park and a popular pilgrimage site of Gosainkunda. Langtang Lirung (7,227m), Langtang Ri (7205m), and Yala Peak (5,50m) are a few of the mountains located entirely inside the National Park and are also available for the grand audience during trekking in Langtang valley.
Langtang Trek is a 10 days trekking package taking to the wildest land of beauty. Langtang is the closest Himalayan region from Kathmandu valley filled with scintillating natural heritages. Massive snowcapped mountains, beautiful glacial lakes, lush vegetation, Tibetan peoples and their unique lifestyle influence everyone to visit over there.
A few hours drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubeshi, the trek starts following the ragging Langtang river across the dense forest of Langtang national park which eventually takes us to Langtang village (3,430m) and Kyanjin Gompa (3,870m). It is one of the most popular trekking regions for those wishing a short trek in the Himalayas of Nepal. Langtang valley is greatly influenced by the Tibetan lifestyle, locals are descendants of Tibetan origin. Varieties of Rhododendron, majestic waterfalls, bamboo forests, snow-capped mountains and hair rising landscapes makes you walk a diverse experience. Join us and entertain your adventure life with an adventure walk.

Read reviews of our optimistic volunteers.

"Leaving friends and family behind I boarded a plane to Nepal to meet my “new family” for the next 8 months. Moving to a developing country across the world can be a daunting experience. However, upon arriving at Volunteer World Nepal I was openly welcomed into the Volunteer World Nepal family. Volunteer World Nepal offers a unique experience to become part of the Volunteer World..."

With
easy bus routes into town and the surrounding countryside this quiet and safe suburb is the perfect base for your time in Nepal.

We start a guided tour to four of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu. Kathmandu Durbar Square holds the palaces of the medieval Kings who ruled over the then Kathmandu Kingdom. Pashupatinath houses a sacred lingum, or the phallic symbol of Lord Shiva. The Aryaghat alongside Pashupati and on the banks of the Bagmati River is a famous funeral site for the Hindus. The Buddhists shrine of Boudhanath is one of the largest stupas in the world, and one of the holiest Buddhist pilgrimage and tourist destinations in Kathmandu. The area of Boudhnath is also famous for over 50 Tibetan Gompas or monasteries. We would like you to experience the real life of Nepal so that we would like to show you how schools are run and students are taught.This school is totally funded by our company.

We start our trip about 7 am in the morning and head north out of Kathmandu driving through scenic foothills and ridgeline vistas to Syabrubensi, the first part of the drive up to Trishuli Bazaar is quite smooth, then the path moves along the gravel road and overnight at Lodge. Tamang Heritage Trail is not so far from Kathmandu, the road is hilly and winding (though spectacular), climbing high and providing us with superb panoramic views of the Annapurnas, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and the peaks of the Langtang region.

We cross several suspension bridges following Langtang river. We pass through dense oak forest of Langtang national park along the up-down trial and reach to Bamboo (1,970m) for lunch. We trek couple of hours more to make up to Lama Hotel. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

Our morning tea is followed by steady climb up along a dense forest and through the villages. Today we leave the tree line behind and get to appreciate the invitation of Nepalese Himalayas with open heart. In front Mt. Langtang Lirung (7,227m) seems marvelous. Pass by Ghodatabela (3,030m), Chyamki village (3,230m), chortens, water mills, prayer wheels and Mani walls before getting to beautiful Langtang village. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

We make short trek with slight uphill and downhill. We will pass by many small plateaus, biggest Mani wall in Nepal and yak postures. Since, it is really a high altitude, take your time to walk slowly and acclimatize your body. Kyanjin Gompa is another wonderful land of Langtang surrounded by Himalayas. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

Today also we repeat downhill trek all the way to Lama Hotel. We begin our trek after breakfast and retrace our steps to Lama Hotel. Most of the trekking today will be downhill as we pass through forests and beautiful Tamang villages. We also get to enjoy different view of the Himalayas that we had missed climbing up. Overnight in Lama Hotel. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

Today also we repeat downhill trek all the way to Syabrubeshi. We descent down along the dense forest hearing anonymous sounds of Langtang khola river. Since, the whole journey is mostly downhill, we can easily make the way. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

We start our drive to Kathmandu and it takes about 9 hours, it is a pleasant drive back to Kathmandu with marvelous views of hills, mountains, terraces and villages check in to the hotel and overnight at hotel.
