Langtang Treks cancelled for 2015

Due to the devastating landslides in Langtang caused by the April 25th earthquake, we have reluctantly taken the decision to cancel treks into this region for the post monsoon season. The communities of Langtang will need time to recover and KE is helping in this process though the Juniper Trust. Once the reconstruction has happened, we will be running our treks there in 2016. This will be the best way to support the people of Langtang in the long term and you will definitely be assured of a warm welcome!


  • One of the finest 2-week Nepalese trekking holidays
  • Spectacular ridge trekking along the crest of the Thare Danda
  • Cross the Laurebina La (4600m) to the Sacred Lakes of Gosainkund
  • Exciting helicopter flight from Kyanjin to Kathmandu
  • Kathmandu Airport transfers and all meals included

North of Kathmandu (its peaks visible from the Nepalese capital on a clear day) the Langtang Himal is known for its brilliant trekking and spectacular landscapes. After a short drive to the village of Sundarijal, our approach to this unspoiled region involves a week of trekking through the district of Helambu. Following the airy crest of the Thare Danda and staying in lodges throughout, we cross the Laurebina La (4600m) to the sacred lakes at Gosainkund and enjoy fantastic views of the peaks of the Rolwaling and distant Khumbu. From Syabru, we then hike to the heart of Langtang at the monastery village of Kyanjin and have the option to trek to the summit of Tsergo Ri (4984m) for views that include the 8000 metre peak Shisha Pangma. Flying back to Kathmandu via helicopter from the STOL airstrip at Kyanjin provides a most exciting finale. This short trekking holiday ranks amongst the best in Nepal.

Is this holiday for you?

Generally, the trekking conditions on this holiday are relatively easy underfoot, following good paths throughout. There are some sections of steep trail through rhododendron forest, both during the ascent to the Laurabina La and also entering the Langtang valley, but for the most part the uphill sections are at a moderate gradient. It should be noted however, that trekking at altitudes above 3000 metres makes greater demands on the body than walking at low elevations, and is of itself challenging even for fit hikers. Our itinerary is well staged to allow the best possible acclimatisation but you will need to ensure you are physically prepared for the trek. You should be comfortable with walking for 4 to 6 hours each day and for several days continuously. The optional ascent of Trsergo Ri presents no technical difficulty but if taken, this will be the most challenging day of the trip. This ascent should be within the capabilities of fit and active hikers. The trip ends with a helicopter flight from a STOL airstrip.
