About Langtang Valley Trek 

After the earthquake and reading many sorry news from Langtang valley trek, we thought of venturing for this very destination after over a year from the catastrophe. To being with, we boarded our bus and went to our trek put in point of Dhunche and the road was completely intact. A little bit bumpy, as always, but other than that it was just the regular Nepalese roads. Beginning our trek on foot, we saw traces of earthquake and the impact it has caused in people’s life but was heart wrenching to hear people suffering from lack of tourist over the earthquake itself.

Langtang valley trek is not like how it used to be back in days. Recently, it has become more off the beaten and very rare and only people who would like to beat the heat visit. You would still see the unaltered terrain, walk through the forest housing red pandas and some rare habitats. You would still reside in the teahouses of the mountain settlers from Tamang communities. Tamang are descendants of Tibetans, unlike Sherpa’s of Everest and the indigenous tribes of Annapurna’s, they are significant in their own way. You will see people rebuilding their homes, tea houses, monasteries, chortens and their daily lives as well. Meanwhile, you will as well find that where previously were teahouses are no more currently, making you walk further for a course of meal or even accommodation.  Nevertheless, the locals said, the flowers still blossoms, the lakes are still beautiful and the rivers still flow and their eyes are desperate to see you.


Few mountains we recognized and you will as well see are Manaslu, Annapurna, Ganesh Himal, Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa and few other mountains in Langtang and further in Tibet. We did not see much of destruction in terms of teahouses or even residential houses as we moved closer to Gosainkunda area but towards Kyanjin destruction can be witnessed in every footsteps. You can as well follow our youtube link to see the compilation of our Langtang valley trek. Visit this destination today and help Langtang and help its people and equally enjoy the trip!

The facilities are basic but the will power is amazing.

Furthermore, you will see many changed courses due to the huge rocks gliding down from the mountains. However, Kyanjin has opened up fine amount of accommodation. Few are concrete and many are small and family run and with only couple of them. In case of large amount of tourists, the accommodation would not suffice.

The trek itself is beautiful

I did the Langtang Valley Trek in a small group (2 + Raj as our trekking guide).Firstly, all the booking/communication with Shaurab was very efficient and I was provided with a good quality down jacket and sleeping bag.The trek itself is beautiful but quite arduous and as you go higher, the accomodation and facilities are pretty spartan. I would definitely trek with BT (Budget Trekking) again though and thanks again Shaurab and Raj, if you are reading this!
