Langtang Valley Trek takes you to the mystical nature nestled with the cultural enrichment in a short duration of time. Located at the northern part of Nepal bordering with Tibet, Langtang Valley is one of the most accessible tourist destinations in Nepal. Though the trail is merely discovered by many travellers, it is one of the most rewarding trekking routes of Nepal. From eye-dazzling sceneries, bushes walk, glaciers and exposure of lifestyle and culture, it has it all.
The trek is initiated after a scenic drive up to the traditional village, Syabrubesi. Syabrubesi is the gateway to any treks to the Langtang Region of Nepal. It is a village inhabited by the various ethnic groups like Tamang, Sherpa and Gurung; mostly influenced by the Tibetan lifestyle and culture. Then onwards, walking thru bushes and alongside the river, enjoying the picturesque sceneries of the cascading hills, snow-clad peaks, and the blooming of Rhododendron forest as well as several other species of vegetations, we will crawl our way to Kyanjing Gompa which is the last settlement along the trail and our ultimate destination.
Meanwhile, we will be blessed to take a closer look at the protected herbs, vegetations, and wildlife and birds in the Langtang National Park. The national park was a restricted area prior to 19th due to the security threats from the bordering countries. And to enhance the preservation of endangered species, it is a protected area which is allowed to visit only with a special permit from the Government of Nepal.

Just completed this somewhat challenging trek as a first-time trekker at age 61! Wanted to explore the Langtang region with my husband and adult son - supported by Ramesh, the owner of the trekking company and 2 porters who became our very good friends, managed it without too many hiccups.
It does not reach areas as high as some of the better known treks but as parts of this region were decimated by the 2015 earthquake, the pathways have been rebuilt with many stone steps which are also thoroughfares for ponies and donkeys carrying building and food supplies to the higher regions so the steps get knocked around a bit making for some challenging walking. A fascinating area with culture heavily influenced by the Tibetan immigrants over several centuries.
The care and concern shown by Ramesh and his team are phenomenal, starting with the planning which begins weeks before with applications for trekking permits etc taken care of. He equips us with all the gear we might possibly need. Being February it has the potential to snow (and does).
In a 4WD vehicle to our kick-off point, Ramesh ensures we by-pass traffic jams and the town accommodation is great. Once trekking commences he patiently guides us at our own pace, and ensures the nighttime accommodation in tea-houses is comfortable and meals are good. He closely monitors the health of his charges - when I get a bad headache at the highest altitude, I don't realise till afterwards how closely he is observing me for signs of altitude sickness; were I to show any symptoms he would insist we went back down to a lower tea-house.
Ramesh and the porters are fun to be with - we have lots of laughs and lots of interesting discussions about local history and culture and they are interested to hear about Australia.
The trek is geared around our capabilities - it is flexible - can be lengthened or shortened to suit.
Ramesh has many other trekking routes - all over Nepal - varying from a few days to months. I fancy the month-long 'Rhododendron Kingdom' trek next - a mixture of teahouses and camping - camping is the real way to do trekking he tells me!
I went on a trek with my parents, who are over 60, to the Langtang Valley. We were taken with our guide and hotel owner and now friend, Ramesh, who was amazing in organising it and catering it to our needs. It was a stunning time, and the friends we made were an absolute highlight - including our two porters, Amar and Pralad, who were just the best guys to be spending this time with. I highly recommend going on a trek with these guys, it's so well organised, and Ramesh can cater for whatever your needs are - in our case, the distance we were travelling each day was a bit too much for my parents, and our days were shortened accordingly, and Ramesh was happy to do so. He certainly made me feel like one of the boys, enjoying some chang rice beer with local families once we'd reached the highest point of the trek, which I might add is so worth the trek. It is a stunning place, nestled in between the snowy mountains, with options to do some day walks from there to some of the peaks - which I highly recommend! There was a lot of laughs along the way - it was actually turned into just a hilarious and fulfilling time because of our guide and porters, and I wouldn't hesitate to go with them again!
