Langtang Valley Circuit Trek-15 Days

Trip Introduction


 
Langtang Valley Circuit Trek
Langtang Valley is a classic trekking destination, located only 61.8km away from aerial distance, north of Kathmandu.
Although the Langtang Valley Trek is relatively short, accessible, and cheap, the trails are quieter with less number of trekkers compared to other classic trekking destinations in Nepal.
The trek is ideal for both experienced trekkers as well as novice travel enthusiasts. This trek provides an incredible opportunity to traverse through beautiful Tamang Villages, diverse landscapes, eye-catching waterfalls, high Himalayan valleys, monasteries, and densely forested areas.
The mountain trails to Langtang also offer you a spectacular sight of the glaciers and mountains including Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal, Jugal Himal, Dorje Lakpa, and Ganja La Pass.
Protected as Langtang National Park, it is home to an abundance of exotic animals and birds. On a lucky day, you may spot plenty of wild animals including Red Panda, Langur, Musk Deer, snow leopards, Himalayan tahr along with birds like Himalayan Munal. White-winged redstart, and the snow Partridge.
Before the catastrophic earthquake in 2015, Langtang used to be one of the most commercial trekking destinations in Nepal. The region was severely affected and damaged by the earthquake. Some of the villages in the region were destroyed and buried under the rubble. However, after massive reconstruction and renovation efforts, the area is now open for the trekkers.
Trekking to Langtang valley is possible throughout the year. How ever, the spring season (March to May) right after the cold winter and in the Autumn season (September to November) right after the soaking monsoon are two most popular periods to visit the Langtang region.
In most of the days during the Autumn, the temperature remains moderate with a crystal clear sky. This means the temperature during this time of the year is perfect for walking. Also, you get to witness the incredible scenery of the Himalayas throughout the trek. However, the only drawback to trek at this time of the year is the crowded trails.
During the spring season, the temperature is slightly warmer during the day, and the sky looks hazy at times. This means the view may not be as exceptional as the Autumn.
Winter brings cold and harsh weather, especially at the higher elevations. Thick snow covers the trails making it hard to walk during winter. However, the skies are unclouded and reward magnificent sights. If you’re planning to trek to Langtang valley during the winter, make sure to pack warm clothes and high-quality sleeping bags.
Monsoon is the least favorable time to go trekking in Langtang. The temperature is far too unstable with wet and slippery trails. Since dense forests dominate this region, the risk of leeches increases extensively. Trekking is monsoon demands proper preparation and packing.
