A lot of our clientele write to us about their excitement of visiting Nepal and exploring its natural beauty in the natural setting. However, most of them have a very short stay due to their other commitments and plans. For those groups of clients, we at Skyline Treks and Expedition mostly recommend them this short and easy trek in the Langtang region, as it’s the closest trekking destination from the capital ‘Kathmandu’.
We start this merely 9 days long trek from about 7 hours’ drive from Kathmandu to Syabru Bensi (1450m), a Sherpa village placed at the edge of ‘The Langtang Valley’. The valley itself falls in ‘The Langtang National Park’, home to around 4600 local inhabitants, many species of birds and animals. As we pass through the trail, we are continuously encircled by snow-capped peaks of ‘The Ganesh Himal’, ‘Langtang Lirung’ and the ranges of Annapurna and Manaslu. Following the banks of the Langtang River, we climb steeply through forests of hemlocks, maples and rhododendron to popular lunchtime spot of Ghora Tabela.
A couple of hours of gradual climb in to the Lantang Valley finally takes us to ‘Kyanjin Gompa’ our destination of this short trek to Langtang. We have the options to climb to Kyanjin Ri or Cherko Ri (5000m), to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Lantang valley and the 360 degree of Himalayan panorama. After enjoying a great morning at KyanjinGompa, we trek down to the Lama hotel and make our way towards Kathmandu.
This short and easy trek in the Langtang region offers plenty of chances to see typical Nepalese lifestyle, sky-high snow-capped peaks and wildlife experience too. So, if you’re planning to visit Nepal but have less time to explore the corners and popular treks of the country then let us plan your trek to the Langtang region. We won’t leave a stone unturned to make it the best trek of your life!

We have travelled many places around the world and prefer to use local companies. After some Internet searching I came across Skyline treks. They put together a great itinerary for us. We travelled for 5 weeks in Nepal including treking to Annapurna base camp, rafting the Seti river, Chitwan National Park, and most of the local attractions around Kathmandu, Pokhara, and everywhere in between. We had a fantastic experience.
We have travelled as a private group with local companies and with international travel companies before. I have to say I much prefer local companies and Skyline treks in no exception. What you gain by traveling with local groups is getting to know people including your guides, drivers, and many people along the way. There is a much greater interaction with local people that will enrich your trip. Having the same driver and guides, porters etc over many weeks allows good friendships to be formed and for a much more personal trip. Raj, the owner of the company took great care of us. When the going got tough on the abc trek with ice and snow, there was always a helping hand. We always had hot drinks shortly after arriving at the tea houses. Go and have a great adventure in Nepal with skyline treks if you haven't been or try them if you are returning. We would love to return in the future to see more of this charming country and friendly people.
