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.
