Langtang Valley Trek 11 Days

langtang valley trek 11 days

Can you find heaven on earth? The answer is yes, Langtang valley is a heaven on earth. It is mostly because this place is surrounded by giant mountains and beautiful landscapes. But its significance does not end there.

Langtang is rich in ancient tradition and culture as well. It is one of the best places in the Himalayas to discover Buddhism. The Tibetan-Buddhism culture has been influencing the locals around Langtang for many decades.

Langtang valley trek 11 days takes you to the journey through valleys surrounded by lush forests and incredible mountains. You will sleep like the locals, eat like the locals, live like the locals, and more importantly survive like the locals.

The Langtang region is one of the most beautiful places in Nepal. This place is surrounded by giant mountains. The snow-capped mountains are the primary attractions of Langtang.

Besides mountains, Langtang National Park is the second-largest National Park in Nepal. It means Langtang is home to hundreds of different plants and animals. It is not a difficult and expensive trek, but it is just as beautiful as the others are.

There are very few treks where you can almost touch the Himalayas at such altitude. Your journey starts at Kathmandu and a drive to Syabrubesi(1450m). The next day we will stay at Lama Hotel (2480m), and you will reach the Langtang village (3540) on the fifth day.

The sixth and seventh day is where we explore the beautiful Kyanjin Gompa(3817m) and Tsergo Ri(4985m). You will return towards Syabrubesi following the same route, and reach Kathmandu on the Tenth day of your journey.

Without further ado, let us go through some information of the Langtang valley trek 11 days and the day to day itinerary.

Foods and Accommodations

Langtang valley trek is yet to become as famous as the Everest or Annapurna Treks. Still, there are lots of teahouses and lodges in the Area. You will trek from one rest stop to another.

The devastating earthquake back in 2015 destroyed most houses in the Langtang villages. But now they are building in even better. There are more hotels and tea houses.

Besides food, black tea is the most common drink around Langtang. You can find hot coffee and hot chocolates in some places.

Best Time for Langtang Valley Trek 11 Days

Langtang valley trek is doable throughout the year. But, there are certain months that are better for specific reasons. September to December and March to May are two best seasons to visit Langtang valley.

During these months, the sky is clear and the mountains look sharp. And you can trek through lush vegetation and Rhododendron forest.

Weather and Temperature of Langtang

Weather and temperature in Langtang depend upon the seasons. The lower altitude does not get too hot in summer, and too cold in winter.

During Autumn Langtang trek, the weather stays warm and stable. The mornings and nights get cold, and you can hike in comfort during the day. The maximum temperature can get up to 15°C and it can get as low as -3°C.

The precipitation is low during this season, which makes it ideal for trekking.

During the spring season, the trail becomes stunning. The forest becomes beautiful with Rhododendrons blossoms all around. The maximum and minimum temperature can get up to 20 and around 0°C respectively.

Langtang trek is not ideal for summer. The temperature can get up to 32°C, and precipitation increases as well. During this season, the trail becomes complicated as there are high chances of landslides occurring.

During winter, the Langtang village becomes cold at night and warm during the day. However, this region gets a significant amount of snowfall each year. The temperature can get up to 8°C during the day, but it gradually decreases as the night falls. Minus degrees temperature is common in Langtang in winter.

Weather during Autumn and Spring seasons remain calm and stable. But it can get worse in winter, and landslides make it worse in monsoon.

Langtang Valley Trek Difficulties

Langtang valley trek is moderate when it comes to difficulties. There are enough accommodations, and the trail is not that challenging. But one should never underestimate anything. Here are some of the difficulties one might face during the Langtang Valley Trek 11 days.

Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness is the primary factor that increases the difficulty of any trek. It is true that you do not gain altitude in Langtang valley as you do in the Everest region. But altitude sickness is still a mystery.

It does not matter how fit you are, what your age is, or what gender you are. Altitude sickness can hit anyone at any moment.

If you get altitude sickness, descend immediately. Go to the lower altitudes, catch your breath, and rest if you have to. And if you start climbing, you should walk on your pace and rest between every few minutes.

Diamax is the medicine for altitude sickness, that you can buy without prescription in Kathmandu. Still, I would suggest you consult your doctor before taking any medicine with you.

Remoteness and Unavailability

The Langtang valley trek 11 days takes you to some of the most remote areas of Nepal. These areas do not have proper roads and modes of transportation. Everything needs to be carried or flown to Langtang valley.

You would not want to get sick or injured in such remote places. If anything happens, the nearest hospital could be days away, and you might need an emergency helicopter for the rescue.

It is difficult to even complete the basic needs in these regions. There is no proper electricity, and foods tend to become expensive there. Considering the difficulty in getting things, the prices seem fair. However, it does make this trek challenging.

There are lots of landslides areas in Langtang. Walking across some of them can be challenging and you have to be careful every second.
