Langtang Valley Trek

Not far from Kathmandu is a chain of high snowcapped mountains, hidden from the city by the hills to the North. Sometimes, on clear days, tantalizing glimpses of this range can be seen from the south of the city, but for the most part, it's hidden from view. The tallest peak in the range is called Langtang Lirung, standing at over 7200 meters, and the Langtang Valley trek eventually takes you to the foot of this peak. You travel through a region as yet not quite as overrun by tourists as the Everest or the Annapurna region, in a valley once described by early explorers of Nepal as the "most beautiful valley in Nepal."

The trek is not long, just about a week, but it takes you breathtakingly close to a high Himalayan peak and glacier, and through villages and settlements that have retained a charm not often found anymore in tea house trek routes elsewhere. The trek gets its name from the river that starts from the glaciers in the Langtang range, and along the banks of which you will be walking for most of the trek. On this trek you will walk from lowland forest to high alpine deserts in a relatively short span of time, and see what takes most trekkers in other regions much longer to see and experience. The Langtang Valley trek is a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered, and experienced, by you..

Unforgettable Experience

Just got back from trekking in Langtang and the colorful memories of the beautiful trek is still vibrant in my mind. The trek via the flowery trails in the tranquil atmosphere of Langtang offered an opportunity to see the brilliant views of the mighty Himalayan peaks. The warm hospitality of local people minimized all hard moments of the trek and departed us with dazzling smiles.

Immersive Cultural Experience

After few hours’ drive from Kathmandu, I reached to the modest circuit of Langtang region. I stayed as a paying guest in the house of Tamang family and was totally lost in the rich tapestry of their unique culture. A gentle walk amidst the picturesque villages, terraced fields, and peaceful valleys, took me to a high mountain ridge, from where I got breathtaking views of high Himalayan Mountains. Experiencing local hospitality and charm, I spent the most beautiful days of my life in Langtang.
