The Langtang Valley is one of the superb short treks in Nepal that packs a lot of scenic punch into a small amount of time. The trail ascends the Langtang Valley from just 1470m at Syabrubesi to hit 3870m at Kyanjin Gompa, following the rushing Langtang Khola river past lush forests and bamboo groves to a collection of high alpine pastures, glaciers and peaks on the border with Tibet.
The superb day hikes from Kyanjin Gompa in particular offer spectacular close-up views of the surrounding peaks and glaciers of Langtang Lirung (7246m), Kimshung (6781m) and Langshisha Ri (6370m). It’s worth budgeting a couple of days here to take advantage of the fabulous scenic side trips.
The Langtang valley short trek journey begins from Chilime to Tatopani gradually climbs through farmlands and deep subtropical forest, passed several high waterfalls to highlands with magnificent views of snow covered peaks. After lunch swim at the hot springs at Tatopani. Then, continue to a great viewpoint of the Ganesh and Langtang Himal along the Tibetan border before trekking up to Nagathali Ghyang for the night: and fantastic sunrise photographic possibilities.
