Langtang Valley Trek

Langtang valley region is near from Kathmandu and it’s Tibetan border. Though it is near from Kathmandu the area is bit remote than other part of the region. The people of this region look like Tibetan and their culture and tradition are similar to Tibetans. The Langtang National park is Nepal’s first National park. The Langtang valley trek begins from Syabrubesi, heading to Lama hotel, Langtang Village until Kanyanjing Gompa. During Langtang valley trek we are passing through rhododendron forests, Bamboo forests, majestic water falls and snow capped Mountains. The area is dominated by Langtang Lirung (7245 M, Ganja la Pass (5122 M), Jugal Himal and Dorje Lakpa (6989 M). The Lanagtang valley Trek offers to explore many religious Kunda like Gosaikund, Parvatikunda, Bhairabkund, Dudhkund etc. After exploring the area, we trek down thorugh same route to Syabrubesi and drive back to Kathmandu.

The Langtang valley to the north of Kathmandu lies just south of the Tibetan border, sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. This made it an important region for trade over several centuries and a focal point for cultural exchange. The trek starts at Syabrubensi, only a few hours from Kathmandu. It offers a wide range of landscapes and sceneries. The route follows the river up the valley through various types of forests (in particular the impressive rhododendron forests) and takes you from a warm, almost tropical climate to the harsher environment at higher altitude. Along the way, there is a good chance of observing wild boar, deer, several types of monkeys and even some of the larger predators as bears and leopards, not to mention the many kinds of wildflowers. As soon as you get out of the forest, you will have the impressive Langtang Lirung mountain (7246m) right in front of you. The route then continues along the Langtang mountain range with all the famous glaciers and beautiful snow-covered peaks.
