Trip Overview

A wonderful trek that’s ideal for the family, a group of close friends or for someone wishing to enjoy their honeymoon in a special way…This is an ideal outing in the gentle part of the wild as we hike through elevations not too high among some of the most attractive natural scenery within the borders of Nepal’s Himalayas as we get some deep insights along the way into some interesting & rich Tamang culture found on this route as we learn of this mountain tribe & their traditions & customs on these harsh mountains in which they live & survive for most of their lives.

The trek begins with visiting the Kathmandu valley, Kathmandu Darbar square, Swayambhunath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa & Pasupatinath Temple. Time is believed to have stood still for villages in this remote part of Nepal. People of the valley still believe in the simple way of living life. During the trek tourists are presented with several opportunities to be a part of the native’s lives. Untouched by modern civilisation the Tamang heritage trail follows into the core of the most remote yet prettiest places in Nepal. Because of being close to Tibet, the culture of the people in this part of Nepal bears striking resemblance to that followed by Tibetans.

Essential Information


The entire Langtang trek route, including all the intermediary stops, falls within the Langtang National park Area Project. This initiative is dedicated to preserving the diverse flora and fauna indigenous to the region. To traverse this area, you are required to obtain an ACAP permit.

Permit Costs:

  • For foreigners: NPR 3000 (Approx. $30)
  • For SAARC Nationals: NPR 1000 (Approx. $10)

In addition to the Langtang permit, a TIMS card is essential for LangtangTrekking. TIMS, which stands for Trekkers Information Management System, plays a crucial role in tracking trekkers during their journey. Security personnel use TIMS cards to access information about your identity and location. Both of these permits can be acquired in Kathmandu, and your trekking agent can assist you in the process.


The choice of ground transportation for the Langtang trek is contingent on your group size. For groups of 1-3 individuals, a car will be arranged for your journey. Meanwhile, groups comprising 4-7 people will be provided with a hired jeep. Private vehicles will be reserved specifically for the segments from Kathmandu to Syabrubeshi.

Best Time to visit

Out of the 12 months in the year, three particular periods offer an exceptional weather window for trekking in Nepal. The first is during spring, which spans from March to May, making it the most preferred time for Poonhill trekking. Another ideal trekking season is autumn, lasting from the end of September to mid-December. Winter, occurring from December to February, also presents favorable conditions for trekking.

Conversely, the summer months (June to August) constitute the monsoon season in Nepal, characterized by heavy rainfall. While trekking is still possible during this time, occasional rain showers can make the trail slippery and obstruct panoramic Himalayan views. The most favorable weather conditions for the Langtang trek are experienced during autumn (September to December) and spring (March to May). Nonetheless, trekking in winter is feasible, albeit with extremely low temperatures. For those venturing during the winter months, it is recommended to carry warm clothing and a suitable sleeping bag for the colder nights.
