This 12-day adventure combines cultural exploration, scenic beauty, and a moderate physical challenge. Trek through serene forests, traditional villages, and towering mountain ranges, with unforgettable views of the Langtang range. A rich blend of local culture and natural wonder, this trek offers an intimate Himalayan experience.

Langtang Valley Trekking: An Overview

The journey through the Langtang Valley Trek offers an incredible opportunity to delve into the Himalayan heartland. Also known as "the valley of glaciers", the valley boasts stunning glacial landscapes, surrounded by towering peaks. Just a short distance from Kathmandu, the trek unveils a spectrum of ecosystems, from lush woods to rocky landscapes.

Road and Transportation while Trekking Langtang

Health and Fitness Guide

While the Langtang Valley Trek is not as strenuous as other treks, good physical fitness is nonetheless essential. Regular cardio exercises, strength training, and hikes can help you prepare. Remember to keep a slow and steady pace on the trail and allow your body time to acclimate.

Facilities on the Langtang Valley Trail

The Langtang Valley Trail is adequately equipped with tea houses that offer basic meals and accommodations. 

Electricity and Charging Options During Langtang Trek

Electricity is accessible in the teahouses along the trail, but power cuts can happen. Most teahouses will allow you to charge your devices for a small fee. Carrying a portable charger or extra batteries is recommended.

Wifi availability at Langtang Valley

While some teahouses might provide Wifi, it's generally unreliable and slow. They usually charge an additional amount for Wifi. Mobile Data works at some places, but the network is unstable as you climb higher. You can purchase data packs from Ncell or NTC Sim Cards. They can be found in the airport or in shops in Kathmandu. 

Network Connection at Langtang Valley

Mobile network coverage in the valley is patchy and often weak. Ncell offers the best coverage, but it's not reliable for communication. Tea houses usually have landlines that can be used for emergencies, but that requires additional charges.

Tea Houses and Rooms on Langtang Trek

The tea houses along the Langtang trek offer simple accommodation with twin-shared rooms. They provide basic accommodation facilities. The rooms usually have two beds with foam mattress, bedsheet, blanket, and pillows. Some rooms may also have a table and a cupboard. While single rooms may be possible in lower regions, depending upon the influx of visitors, finding one in higher altitudes is next to impossible. In either case, you will need to pay more. 

Toilets and Bathrooms

The toilets and bathrooms in lower regions are usually attached to your room. In exceptional cases, you might need to adjust with shared bathrooms & toilets. The toilet may be either squat-style or western style. 

In higher regions, the toilets and bathrooms are shared. The toilet system is usually squat style, and comes with a bucket of water and a mug. Sometimes the toilets are outside the teahouse in a separate hut. 

Hot/Cold Water Availability while traveling to Langtang Valley

At lower regions, bathrooms come with hot shower services and depending upon the teahouse. Hot showers, in higher regions, are rare, and with an extra charge of $2-$3, you may get a bucket of hot water and a mug, if available.

Clothing and Gear Shops

While you can rent or buy gear in Kathmandu, options along the trail are limited. It's best to procure all necessary equipment before starting the trek.

Clinics and Medical Facilities

There are limited medical facilities on the trek. However, guides are trained in first aid, and there's a health post in Kyanjin Gompa. It's recommended to carry a basic first aid kit for minor issues.


The Langtang Valley Trek is a journey that goes beyond just the physical challenge. It's an immersive experience that will introduce you to the breathtaking beauty of the Himalayas and the rich culture of the Tamang people. While it requires preparation and fitness, it remains an accessible trek that promises the adventure of a lifetime. 





Solo Langtang trek with wonderful guide/porter
There are so many trekking companies in Thamel, but I recommend you go straight to Earthbound Expeditions! I did my research from home first, then visited a few agencies in Thamel before I walked past Earthbound (who were on my list from internet research), walked in and chose them straight away. Rajan was very friendly and helpful. I only booked the day before I left and this was no problem. I also value the fact that they are an environmentally and socially conscious company. I did the 8 day Langtang Valley trek and absolutely loved it! It was important to me to feel comfortable with my guide as I was a solo female traveler. Rajan paired me up with Mitra as my guide/porter for this trip and it was no problem when I requested I meet him first, which I did the day before we left. Mitra means 'friend' and that he was. He was so professional for such a young age. Mitra took such good care of me, always making sure I was comfortable and ok. He stuck with me at my pace, made sure I was well catered for at every meal and always had a big friendly smile on his face. I was so very lucky to have Mitra as my guide. Langtang was amazing and Mitra made it even better for me. I hope to go back to Nepal one day and do some more trekking. I will go straight back to Earthbound Expeditions. No need to look elsewhere. Thanks Rajan and Mitra!! :)



The Langtang Valley Trek
In March 2014 we did The Langtang Valley Trek with Earthbound and it was everything Rajan said it would be. He was very honest as soon as we met him we all felt good vibes. Our guides Gopal was fantastic and so were the 2 porters’ also Gopal spoke good English which was very important. We did the 9 days trek starting at Dhunche and finishing at Syabru which was the best direction to do it is because the last day was all the way down otherwise you have a shocking climb up to Thulo Syabru village. We paid extra to do both ways by jeep no regrets the road was shocking. When we reached Kyanjin Gumba village we hiked the same day to Langtang Lining Glacier lookout which was ok but if you do Kyanjin Ri (a must) you get a better view of the Glacier anyway. I emailed over 20 tour companies before I left home and found that Earthbound offered more for less money and did not pressure us at all. Thank you Rajan and Gopal for a great trip.



Langtang Valley trek
In April this year, our party of four completed went on a nine-day trip to the Langtang Valley in Nepal. I had been trekking twice previously with two different trekking companies. Both had been excellent so I contacted both to make arrangements for the Langtang trek. I chose Earthbound Expeditions because of the prompt and efficient way all my queries were answered by Rajan. Three of our group had not been trekking before and we were very well looked after by our guide Ratna and wonderful porters Manu and Tibor. The only slightly negative comment I could make was that hotel accommodation for the last night in Dunche had not been booked. Usually, there is no problem getting accommodation but there was a volleyball tournament and environmental conference happening at that time. We did eventually get beds for the night in a guesthouse. I would definitely use Earthbound Expeditions for any future treks

We just finished our 11-day trekking through Langtang Valley through earthbound. We had the most amazing experience. Everything was taken care of for us . The porters went beyond their call of duty to help us. And Rajan was just wonderful. I definitely will use earthbound for my next adventure.



Amazing Company
I purchased the Langtang expedition through a Living Social deal. I can honestly say, for the tie I registered for the trip, the staff didn't disappoint. They were AMAZING! From the Nepal hotel to the bus rides, to the trekking experience itself. I was left amazed. In addition, they arranged for a Mt. Everest flight tour that got canceled. My fellow travelers and I went a second day, and that was canceled, too. Luckily the airport manager arranged for us to fly later in the day - but this meant we had to miss the day tour of the several temples, including the Monkey Temple. When we returned to the hotel, breakfast/lunch was paid for and our last day in Nepal, the company arranged for us to see the Monkey Temple before going to the airport. Amazing all the way around and well thought out and planned.



Langtang Valley Trekking
This was my first trip to Nepal and I highly recommended the Langtang Valley Trekking 12 Days with Earthbound expeditions.The tour covers a lot of ground. I had a wonderful and helpful trek guide named Ramjee bhatta. Ramjee and his team were great we had a lot of memorable time. He made us feel like home and never fails to cheer up on us throughout the whole trip. Looking forward to another trip with Earthbound Expeditions!



Langtang National Park 6-day Trek - Dec ‘19 / Jan ‘20
We made our second trip to Nepal with Earthbound Expeditions. Our first was 10 years ago and was great. Our most recent trip was just as memorable and equally as well-organized. We were a group of 10 and did a 6-day trek to the Langtang Area (up to Gosaikunda and over the pass) over New Year’s followed by a couple of days in Kathmandu. Pre-trip, Raj is great. He answered every email with our questions almost instantly no matter how detailed. On arrival late at night, we were met at the airport, taken to our hotel. At the hotel when we arrived, were extra duffel bags, sleeping bags, snow caps, and one down jacket that we asked for at the last minute. Having this there allowed us to complete our packing for the trek which would start the next day. Raj met us early the next morning to introduce us to our tour guide, Gokal, and head porter, Cerkey Sherpa, brief us on the trek and then see us off. Gokal, our guide, was excellent as were the porters - always with a smile on their face as they lugged our bags up and down the mountains. During the trek, most of us experienced some minor altitude sickness combined with cold temperatures (-15C) and Gokal took good care of us. He even had an oxygen monitor that went on your finger that he used on us. We all fought through it (encouraged by Gokal and Cerkey) and made it over the pass and immediately felt better as we descended. The trek itself was great with amazing views, diverse landscapes, and lots of snow. We hardly saw anyone else on the trails given it was offseason. We had an excellent guide in Kathmandu who showed us around for the day. He was knowledgeable and informative and fun. I would not hesitate to book with Earthbound Expeditions. It is an exceptional company that really does care about your experience. A lot of companies say that but they walk the walk with highly personalized service.
