    Essential Info

    Best time

    Trekking to the Langtang region is best from March to April and October to November. Spring (March to April) is the season when the entire trail gets bloomed with a range of flowers and several other vegetation. Likewise, the chirping of birds along the route and the clear views of the mountains are spectacular. 

    Apart from spring, autumn (October to November) is another great time of the year to trek to Kyanjin Gompa. The weather remains stable, and the climate is moderate, like spring. The lower part of the trail is on the hot side. However, you can feel a refreshing hint of chillness in the winter.
