Hello! My name is Ryan Allred and I am in my mid-30s from San Francisco, CA, USA.

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.

Side trip Upper Langtang Day Hike: This day hike from Kyangjin Gompa leads to the pristine Upper Langtang Valley toward the head of the valley and the Langtang glacier (about 6 hours’ round trip to the glacial view point). There are no teahouses past Kyangjin Gompa so you’ll have to take a packed lunch, but you’ll get to experience the wild beauty of the region.

Weather Conditions in October

October begins the most popular time to trek, with moderate temperatures, clear skies in the wake of the monsoon, and a low chance of rain and snow. In recent years, the monsoon rains have receded later with weather patterns typically stabilizing in mid-October. While the chance of snow is decreased, there is the possibility of a heavy snowfall at higher elevations. If ill-timed and prolonged, this can make it difficult to cross some passes.

At a glance
On average there are 4 days with precipitation in October. The highest point on the trek is Kyangjin Ri at 4779 m. During October, expect high temperatures of around 6.7°C (44°F) and lows down to -7.3°C (19°F) at Kyangjin Ri.
