Mount Langi Ghiran is a 15.2km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Langi Ghiran State Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 5hrs to complete.


This Langi Ghiran and Mt Gorrin hike commences at the visitors area. Walk via the reservoir where you will join the Easter Creek Track. Follow this track until the trail ends. From here you will commence hiking off-trail in order to gain the summit of Langi Ghiran. The next section of the hike is completely off-trail as you descend from the summit to hidden lagoon in thew valley below. You will need to pick the best path down to the valley. Once you locate hidden lagoon it should be easy to locate the nearby gravel track  and follow this back to the start point at the visitors area.

Langi Ghiran is a mountain 14 kilometres east of Ararat in Victoria, Australia, and is home to the Djab Wurrung people who have lived on this land for tens of thousands of years. Rugged granite peaks and gentle sloping woodlands are the dominant features of this local landmark. A pleasant walk to the mountain summit presents a view of ancient Red Gums on the surrounding plains skirted by Mount Buangor in the east and the Grampians in the distant west. Lar-ne-jeering (Langi Ghiran) is Djab Wurrung language for ‘home of the black cockatoo’.


The section between Langi Ghiran and hidden lagoon is mostly off trail. Off track walking is permitted in the park. Bring a GPS, but also a map and compass (never rely completely on a GPS).

Langi Ghiran is a beautiful state park that not many people know about. It is a €˜hidden gem’ that provides many beautiful and wild walks for those who are lucky enough to visit this amazing area.

2 thoughts on “Mount Langi Ghiran (15.2Km)

  1. I attempted this track on 3 September 2016. The GPX file requires you to cross over Mt Langi Ghiran. However, it is almost completely off-track once you complete your ascent of Mt Langi. The actual footpads are very overgrown, and there are very markings.

    The map on and some other maps I located suggest there is a separate track from the east side of Mt Langi to Hidden Lagoon; this is actually not true. There is a track, but it seemed to peter out – I have no idea why the track was constructed in the first place! We ended up turning back after the Mt Langi ascent, due to the overgrown tracks; they were also very slippery and someone took a heavy fall.

    The track according to is a four hour track; it would have taken us a lot longer than four hours, and we weren’t a slow group. Allow six hours.


    1. Hey Craig, most maps will show the trail between the summit and hidden lagoon. Unfortunately it is not often traversed and has become overgrown. It is still there though but just really hard to find. You will note that my GPX file doesn’t even follow this path as we made our own way down from the summit. The hike description details that this is a 5 hour hike and you should be able to complete the circuit easily in that time. The description also refers to off trail walking.
