The Langtang Valley Trek Map

The Langtang Valley Trek Map is also important for every traveler before starting their journey over there, it provides good information about every stay camp of villages and names of mountains with height approximately from the sea level. The trek map is designed by the professional team of Nepal Spirit Adventure.

Getting there: Route Overview

The Langtang Valley Trek begins with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi, a vibrant village at the gateway of the Langtang region. From Syabrubesi, we start our trek, following the trail along the Langtang Khola River. The route takes us through beautiful forests of rhododendrons, bamboo, and pine trees, offering glimpses of diverse wildlife and bird species. As we ascend, we pass through charming villages like Lama Hotel, Ghoda Tabela, and Langtang Village, where we can immerse ourselves in the local culture and interact with friendly people.

Continuing our trek, we reach Kyanjin Gompa, a sacred monastery situated at the base of Langtang Lirung. Here, we can explore the monastery, enjoy panoramic mountain views, and soak in the serene atmosphere. After spending time in Kyanjin Gompa, we retrace our steps back to Syabrubesi, enjoying the scenic landscapes, and bid farewell to the Langtang Valley. Finally, we drive back to Kathmandu, concluding our memorable Langtang Valley Trek.


If you have more time, this trek combines well with the nearby Tamang Heritage Trail, which adds an extra 4-6 days of trekking. There you will learn more about the ethnic Tamang people, who originally came from Tibet.

Alternatively, a trekking route is also available: trek over Gosainkunda Lake Pass back to Kathmandu instead of driving, Gosainkund is a beautiful blue high-altitude lake. It is preferable to trek to Gosainkunda on the return from Langtang rather than on the way, as it requires a fairly steep ascent, and by this point you will be better acclimatized, making the height of the lake (4,380 m.) less of a concern.

If trekking this route without a guide, be especially careful with the altitude—numerous people have been caught out by a dangerous error in a commonly available trekking map that incorrectly lists some altitudes. Double-check all altitudes before setting off.

Meals & Accommodation

The Langtang Valley had been very well set up with plenty of comfortable lodges. While the earthquake and landslide destroyed many in certain towns (most dramatically, in Langtang Village), plenty of other settlements were less affected, and good options are still plentiful.

The standard here is good, with warm blankets, fireplaces, comfortable beds, the occasional hot shower (for an extra fee), and a variety of food. Don’t forget to try the momos in this region, as they are larger and more pastry-like than those commonly found in the capital.

Langtang Trek Route Permits

When you are ready to do the Langtang trek, the trek route permit is compulsory for all trekkers, you’ll need a TIMS card (US$16) and a Langtang National Park permit (US$23). If you’re trekking with an agency, they will arrange these for you. If you’re arranging the trek yourself, you must pick up your TIMS permit in Kathmandu and your Langtang National Park permits in Dunche.

When is the best time for Langtang valley trek?

Trekking in Nepal Himalayas, the main trek season is from September to June when daytime temperatures at most altitudes are generally comfortable for walking, the sky is very clear most of the time, and rain and snow are occasional occurrences.

In the daytime temperatures will vary from 15ºC to 35ºC in the capital city of Nepal- Kathmandu valley to around 15ºC at 3,600m and progressively lower the higher we go. Different seasons offer different advantages for trekking, climbing, and hiking.

Post Monsoon/Autumn: Mid-September to November. These months are the main trekking season in Nepal. Day temperatures in Kathmandu are approximately above 20ºC. Skies are usually clear and days on the trek are sunny and have mild clear mountain views. The night will be colder with temperatures dropping as low as minus 15ºC at the highest altitudes area.

Winter: Last week of December to the end of February. Despite the cooler conditions, this is an ideal time to trek in Nepal. Skies are usually very clear, especially in December and the mountain views are at their best.

Nights will be cold with temperatures down 10ºC to minus 15ºC at the highest altitudes but days are pleasant and sunny. The trekking trails are also much less busy at this time of year. In Kathmandu, maximum daytime temperatures are 23ºC.

Pre-Monsoon/Spring: March to May. During this period, both day and night temperatures will be warmer in general but often a haze will build up in the afternoons. It is very hot in the lowland and temperatures rise to 35ºC in Kathmandu.

Flowers bloom in this season and this is one of the reasons people choose to trek in the spring season. Snow can be expected on any departure, usually at higher altitudes.
