The Langtang National Park is amongst our favourite regions to recommend to our clients when they want to do a trekking in Nepal. Not only because of the spectacular views of one of the most wonderful corners of the Himalaya, but especially because of the people, the culture and the tradition that live in this area.
The hearts and landscape were greatly affected by the earthquake on the 25th of April 2015. There is history in every step, a story behind each eye we meet and behind every rock that we leave behind in our path. So many emotions will awake your hearts and open your spirits to a new perspective on life.
Langtang National Park is located in the Himalayan range to the North of Kathmandu. The trek will start in Syapru Besi, and soon we find ourselves wrapped up in the luscious and deep forests, where bamboo flourishes. One day we casually come across the Langur monkey. On another, we see bee hives amongst the top of cliffs, where bee hunters climb ropes and ladders scarcely protected. They harvest some the most flavourful, and also some very unique honey of Nepal.
On the second trek day, the Langtang Valley opens as out of a funnel with breathtaking views of Himalayan peaks (Langtang Lirung 7227m, Langtang II, Urking Kangari, Baden Powell Scout Peak, Naya Kanga, Yala Peak…). We arrive in Kyanjin Gumba on the third day, where we will spend an extra day exploring the surroundings and enjoying the local gastronomy protected by the big mountains of the Langtang National Park.
Prepare to have wonderful tasty curd and cheese from the villagers!

Trip by jeep for about 6 hours to the start of the trek. We will arrive in the afternoon and will sleep in Syaprubesi.
For the first couple of hours the trail is nice and easy, after that, the terrain starts becoming a bit more steep. We walk through some bambu forests. The impact of the damages caused by the earthquake will be immediately visible. In Bamboo village we can see a big landslide.
We will be walking on steep trails up to Langtang Village. Langtang village was actually destroyed after the earthquake in 2015, but there are some lodges reconstructed. The path will take our breaths away, and the locals we meet on our way will fill us up with stories that will just fill our hearts with learning and touching experiences. The landscape here starts opening up to the majestic gigants of Langtang.
A small trek day to get to Kyanjin Gumba. Where we will enjoy the best views of the Himalayan Mountains of Langtang National Park. The panorama is overwhelmingly beautiful.
We will enjoy climbing to one of the peaks next to Kyanjin Ri to contemplate the magic splendorous view of the snow-capped giants and the Langtang Lirung glacier above Kyanjin. The day can lead us to explore also the flat terrain along the Langtang river on the way to Numthang.
Our descent will take us to go down through the steep terrain we ascended before. Today is a good idea to use trekking poles!
We finish the journey back to Syaprubesi walking down through the deep bamboo forest.
Transport back to Kathmandu for about 6 hours. On our arrival, we will check in at the hotel and you can enjoy the evening!
Last day to explore the city of Kathmandu or visit the surroundings (Bhaktapur, Nagarkot, Dhulikel and Namo Buddha...) and find special artisan crafts to take home as a memory of a Country that Inspired You.
We hope to see you again soon!
