The Langtang valley trek is 77 km/48 mi (including Kyanjin Ri peak). It takes 5-7 days on average to complete the route. You can add some side treks to the route which will increase your total distance. If you walk to Tserko Ri Peak from Kyanjin Gompa it will add around 8 km to your trek.
The Langtang valley trek starts at the small town of Syabru Besi. You will trek through magnificent forests to the high alpine meadows and yak pastures around Kyangjin Gompa (a Buddhist monastery). After an (optional) day hike up to the top of Kyangjin Ri (peak), where the 360-degree views of the Himalayan mountains are truly spectacular, you retrace your route back down the valley and drive back to Kathmandu.
The Langtang valley trek is not actually a difficult trekking trail. Anyone with sound health and zero experience of high altitude trek can easily make it to Kyanjin Gompa and back. However, you will need proper guidance and help from the expert to overcome the Langtang trek difficulty.
