How to Trek Langtang NP, Nepal

Langtang Trek

In this post I will outline how to trek Langtang NP, Nepal. I will provide details that include maps, costs, logistical requirements and facts as well as links to a full written narrative, photos and videos. This is a self-guided adventure on a shoestring. Follow the links to dig deeper into the adventure.

This is actually 3 activities in one blog. Part 1 is the motorcycle ride from Kathmandu to Syabru Besi, the trailhead.  Part 2 is the trek to Kyanjin Gompa. Part 3 is the summit of Tsergo Ri at 5033m. All this packed into a 7 day trip because an ‘Americano’ was on a schedule. I recommend a minimum of 10 days for those who wish to enjoy the sights and locals.

Difficulty Level:
This is a Moderate Activity
