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 via Gosainkunda: The Hindu sacred lake of Gosainkunda sits at an altitude of 4380 m (14,370 ft). This destination draws trekkers and pilgrims alike. The trail passes through villages, forests, and beautiful mountain vistas before arriving at the sacred lake.

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.
