Overview

Langtang Valley Trekking is recognized as one of the pleasing trips in Nepal, which begin from Kathmandu followed by a drive to Syabrubesi. The adventure takes you to the beautiful Langtang Valley in the Langtang region of the Himalaya. Langtang region was once affected by natural disaster including earthquake and landslides. After the region was declared safe, many tourists began to head towards the Langtang Valley. The Langtang Valley Trekking is also known as the valley of glaciers trek. This is the closest place where you can get beautiful views of snow-capped mountains and glaciers. The valley is surrounding by Mt. Langtang Lirung and it offers different pine forests, swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks.

Our 10 days tour towards Langtang Valley starts from Kathmandu. We drive towards Syabrubesi with views of different beautiful mountains and settlements. Then start to trek from the lower region of Langtang Valley across small villages, farmlands and verdant forest towards Kyangjin Gompa. We climb towards Tserko Ri which gives us excellent views of the sunrise over the Langtang ranges. The region was once an important trading route as it borders Tibet. You can still see the influence of local culture in the area. Moreover, this trek also takes you to different cultural villages which give you the feeling of living in the mountainous region. We’ll also visit the villages of Langtang region that were heavily affected by the earthquake in Nepal in April 2015. Our exciting Langtang Valley Trekking ends back in Kathmandu where we started.
