Trip Overview

Known as Glacier Valley trekking, Langtang Valley Trek is one of the pleasant trek among many treks in Langtang Region. The trek offers an opportunity of viewing of Himalayan panorama situated nearby the Kathmandu Valley. During this trek, you can see massive snow-covered mountains, beautiful glaciers and colorful rhododendron forest. Moreover, you are offered a chance of being familiar with Tamang and Sherpa people with their unique dialect, rich culture, lifestyles and heartwarming hospitality.

Langtang Valley Trek primarily begins from sightseeing UNESCO World Heritages of Kathmandu Valley. The scenic drive through middle hills leads to Syaburbesi, where the real trek starts. And then, the trail leads upstream following Langtang Khola to ‘Langtang Village’ which was heavily affected by the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal in April 2015.

Langtang Valley Trek
Craig Phillips, USA

My experience with Amazing Nepal Trek was nothing short of AMAZING! I booked the eight days Langtang Valley Trek and have no regrets whatsoever. Communication beforehand was fast and efficient, with any questions answered within the day. Our porter and guide, Khem and Ramesh were truly incredible; I could not fault them on anything if I tried. They were always smiling and cheerful, extremely knowledgeable, and I felt completely safe at all times knowing that I was in good hands. I 100% recommend Amazing Nepal team as my experience with this company was spectacular and surpassed all my expectations, could not have asked for better.

Langtang Valley Trek
Xicu Ribas, Spain

Regardless of the circumstances or situation, my guide from Amazing Nepal Trek & expedition was always professional and went to great efforts to ensure I was well taken care of. My guide and porter could not have been more patient, encouraging and supportive. I can't describe only one memorable part of my trek, as the entire trek itself was a wonderful experience! The views were spectacular and the chance to meet and chat with other trekkers in the evenings at the guest houses was always provided great conversation and learning experiences! Even though I did not reach Kenjing-Ri (due to my own physical limitations) I still had a fantastic experience that changed my life! Thank you Amazing Nepal for making it a safe and wonderful experience!
