via Langtang Valley

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 now recovering and the trekking routes are open into this spectacular valley.

Weather Conditions in June

change start

The middle of June typically marks the beginning of the monsoon. Clear mornings are still possible but get increasingly less likely towards the end of the month. Be prepared for rain and hot humid weather in the low elevation valleys. The added moister means the hills are beginning to change to their vibrant monsoon green. The weather is generally a little drier than in the low valleys at high altitude, but cloud cover can be frustrating when trekking to viewpoints. As always in the spring, early morning is your best chance for clear skies.

At a glance
On average there are 17 days with precipitation in June. The highest point on the trek is Kyangjin Ri at 4779 m. During June, expect high temperatures of around 8.7°C (48°F) and lows down to -1.3°C (30°F) at Kyangjin Ri.

Langtang Valley Upper Langtang Day Hike led by Mingma Nuru Sherpa

We are slower hikers/trekkers than the timings suggested on Sherpana, so our guide Mingma suggested that we spend only a few hours walking the flat areas of the upper valley in the morning, and then hike up Kyangjin Ri in the afternoon. This ended up a much better plan rather than to hike up the Ri in the morning before traveling from Kyangjin down to Lama Hotel for the evening. Sherpana's estimate was 1-2 hours up the Ri and 1 hour down -- we needed 2.5-3 hours up and 1.5 hours down. The upper Langtang Valley provided some opportunities for beautiful photos of the mountains and kharkas , but not as good of views from up on the high point of Kyangjin Ri. We got to watch sunset while descending from the 4770m summit, and this was the high point of our whole trip. The extra day is definitely worth it, and a second extra day would have been even better!

Well worth the detour. Can see some amazing peaks. Very few people and a great sense of the scale of the place.

Langtang Valley via Gosainkunda and Upper Langtang Day Hike led by Ang Tsering Sherpa

There were some pretty tough days getting back up to the higher altitudes after descending back down Langtang but this section of the walk seemed much quieter than the main Langtang route. There were a lot more Nepalese trekkers here going up to the lakes for religious ceremonies which was nice to witness. The lakes are spectacular and worth trying to allocate a couple of days to stay there rather than rushing back down.
