Langtang Valley Trek

Langtang Valley Trek is a pleasant trip in Nepal that begins with tours of Kathmandu’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites followed by a drive to Syabrubesi the next day. Following our route map, we begin trekking from the lower region of the Langtang Valley through small villages, farmlands and verdant forests to Kyangjin Gompa. We also climb Tserko Ri for excellent sunrise views over the Langtang ranges.The region borders Tibet and was once an important trading route. We can still see the influence in the rich local culture. Furthermore, the Langtang Valley Trek’s itinerary also takes us to the ‘Langtang Village’ which was heavily affected by the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal in April 2015. Our exciting 11-day trip in Nepal comes to a conclusion in Kathmandu, where it had started.

Langtang Valley is an amazing location for majestic getaway with wonderful mountain valleys. Langtang Valley is situated in Rasuwa District much nearer to Kathmandu and is easily accessible via 7-8 hours drive. The trek starts at Syaprubesi which is a small village at the sides of Langtang Khola- Largest Glacier River in Nepal. The trek then passes through the villages of Bamboo, Lama Hotel, Ghoda Tabela, Langtang Village and finally to Kyangin Gompa which is the final point of the trek. This trek offers magnificent views of the Langtang Valley which broadens up as we move forward towards Kyangin. The trial ascends up till we reach Ghoda Tabela passing through lush Rhododendron, pine forests. Since it is a protected national park, there exist numerous numbers of flora and fauna in this region. The most important species found in this region is the rarest Red Panda which is on the verge of extinction. Trekkers might get lucky sometime to encounter one. Other animals existing in this region are wild Himalayan black bear, snow leopard, wild boar, musk deer, blue sheep etc. This trekking route is equally beautiful by cultural view also. Being in habited by the Tamang people they present their unique blend of culture and tradition. They also have their own traditional customs and ritual that one can observe during this trek. The main highlight of this trek is the hike up to the Kyangin Ri at the height of 4350m that offers 360 degree views of Langtang Lirung (7246m) and the glaciers across the valley. Or the walk along the moraines of the glaciers will take you to the mouth of the glaciers that too is truly amazing. Langtang valley is a perfect trek who wants easy, short and relaxing trekking in Nepal.
