Langtang Trek is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. Thanks to its relative accessibility (by bus from KTM) and length (only about 7 trekking days), even those who have only about two weeks of time to Nepal can go there. The trek leads through the Langtang Khola river valley and from the lush vegetation it takes you to the alpine landscape of ice peaks and weathered hills. There are plenty of loggias along the way, so you don't have to lug camping equipment with you

Day 1 - Trip from Kathmandu and start of the trek

On the first day, a tiring several-hour bus ride along the dangerous road from Kathmandu to Syabros Besi awaits you. If you want to stretch your murdered body, the ideal option is to connect a little more, for example to the Domain, where you will arrive in an hour and a half of comfortable walking.

Day 2 - From Domain to Gumnachok (Woodland)

The next day you ascend from the jungle to the rhododendron forest and see the glaciated peaks for the first time. You have plenty of options to end the trek, because the loggias are really every 1–2 hours of walking. We recommend going to Gumnachok (Woodland) if you plan to go to Kyanjin Gompa the next day

Day 3. - From Gumnachok to Kyanjin Gompa

The third day awaits you from the lush forest to the open alpine landscape. You will walk through the worst affected place in the whole Langtang – the town of the same name, which was razed to the ground by the infamous earthquake in 2015. Along the way you will almost always have beautiful views. Already today you can walk to Kyanjin Gompa (3,860 m above sea level). Those who want to add altitude gradually, however, prefer to settle a little lower, either in Langtang (3,450 m above sea level) or in Mund (3,540 m above sea level)

Day 4.-6. - Tours and ascents from Kyanjin Gompa

Kyanjin Gompa is not just the destination of the Langtang trek, but rather a starting point for a number of beautiful tours and ascents of various difficulties. You will also find two difficult mountain passes Ganja la and Tilman pass, thanks to which you can go back another way or a two-day climb to Yala Peak. In any case, whatever plans you have here, count on at least three days for the surrounding peaks. We did the following: – 1 / Ascent to Kiangin Ri with return via Glacier View Point – 2 / Tangbu Pass with a short walk towards Ganja la – 3 / Ascent to Tserko ri with return via Yala Kharku

Day 7. - Descent to Rimche

Langtang Trek Part 13: This day you will take a route you have already taken. It is about 19 kilometers to Rimche and about 1500 altitude meters down. Rimche is convenient by turning directly onto the beautiful upper road through Sherpagaon and Khangjim

Day 8. - Upper road through Sherpagaon and Khangjim

On the eighth day of the trek, be sure to take the „upper“ path through the villages of Sherpagaon and Khangjim. wonderful views await you and you will also see the highest mountain of the Ganesh massif – Yangru. In the end, you will only have a long descent back to Syabru Besi

Day 9 - Return to Kathmandu

In the morning, you will be taken by bus back to Kathmandu along the already known road with the vision of eight tiring hours. At least the only advantage is that you will see the sections you saw in the afternoon now in the morning and vice versa
