A great option for those with less time, the Langtang valley trek allows trekkers to get high into the Himalayas without having to climb a high pass. Although the region was devastated by the 2015 earthquake when Langtang village was completely destroyed by a massive avalanche, the region is recovering and trekking routes are open in this spectacular valley.

Weather Conditions in December

change start

December is probably the most underrated month to trek, one of the driest months of the year skies are often clear from sunrise to sunset. The trails and teahouses are less crowded than in November. At higher altitudes, temperatures drop as the winter season approaches so it is important to carry warm enough clothing and sleeping bags. When properly prepared December can be a great month to trek

Amazing people and incredible landscape.

Langtang Valley Upper Langtang Day Hike led by Sanam Sherpa

Beautiful trip. Saw a troop of Langur monkies near Lama Hotel. Mountains were beautiful. Prepare for possible digestion issues if you have not been in this area of Asia before. If you have not done backpacking recently, get in shape, it will be much more enjoyable. Consider packing light or using a porter unless you backpack frequently and have a good sense of your capabilities.

For those who have not trekked in himalaya before this is a very difficult and challenging trail

Langtang Valley led by Phurwa Sherpa

Fantastic journey, incredible scenery, I wish I would have taken a couple of days longer to do it, and appreciate it more fully. Including the trek from Kiangjin Gompa to Tserko Ri at 4984m (instead of Kiangjin Ri) made the whole trek one of the highlights of a lifetime (no pun intended!).

Increadible trek. Not crowded. Perfect blend of culture and mountain scenery. Very safe. Challenging but doesnt require high level of fitness or extensive hiking experience.
