Introduction to Langtang Circuit Trek
Langtang circuit trek is Nepal’s best trekking route with beautiful jungles, many interesting villages, wildlife, waterfalls, and a chance to bathe in the hot springs. Langtang is a narrow valley located north of Kathmandu and south of the Tibetan border. This is a pleasant and exciting trip, a time to enjoy and engage in the beauty of the Himalayas.
Langtang is close to Kathmandu and has less population than other trekking destinations in Nepal. It is a comparatively less crowded region than the Annapurna area and the Everest region. This trek offers great diversity in nature, exciting ethnic groups, and cultures.
The Langtang area is Nepal’s second-largest protected national park, with 1000 species of flora and 150 different species of birds, and many wild animals. You can find some rare animals, red pandas, musk deer, Himalayan black bears, and Pika on this Langtang Circuit Trek.

Excellent views of the mountains
The Langtang area offers excellent views of the mountains such as Langtang, Annapurna, Manaslu, Ganesh, Gaurishankar, Rolwaling Range, etc. This is not just a Langtang Circuit Trek but you can climb small peaks and visit the sacred lakes. The serenity and pristine environment will ease all your worries and as you visit the holy lake (Gosainkunda) you will feel the greatness of God.
Gosainkunda Lake itself is situated at an altitude of 4,381 meters. It is sacred to Lord Shiva and every summer thousands of devotees come to take bath in the holy lake water. Hundreds of Hindu pilgrims come to this lake every year during Janai Purnima in August.
There is no hiking and trekking experience required for the Lantang Circuit Trek. Just a normal walking experience is sufficient for this trip. The best season for this Langtang Circuit Trek is from February to May and August to December. But Odyssey Treks organizes through the year according to your wishes and schedule.

Frequently asked questions about this trip
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
