When people come to Nepal for trekking, they usually look first to the Annapurna or Everest regions. However, they overlook the Langtang region, nestled in the middle of the two. The Langtang region is underrated and quite unpopulated in terms of other trekkers. Our Langtang Valley Trek takes you deep into the heart of the Langtang region, to Buddhist monasteries and through lush forests. The isolated valley, high in elevation, is home to the Tamang people, a kind-hearted group whose ancestors came from Tibet many years ago. Tibetan Buddhism plays a big role in their way of life andsigns of it (mani walls, prayer flags, chhortens, etc.) are prevalent along the path, adding much charm to the journey.
The Langtang Valley Trek kicks off with a scenic 8 hour drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. The trail begins passing through small villages, farmlands, and streams, paired with lush pine, bamboo, and rhododendron forests. During the spring, the bright red blooming rhododendrons juxtaposed with the high alpine scenery is a beautiful sight. These lush, lively forests house the elusive, yet beloved Red Panda, in addition to many other animal species. The biodiversity along the trek is rich and well-preserved.
Throughout the trek, we stayat tea houses, which offersuperb hospitality and delicious meals. Finally, we arrive to the alpine pastures of Kyanjin Gompa, a Buddhist spiritual center with jaw-dropping mountain views. Here, we enjoy a 360-degree panorama of the tallest peaks in the Langtang region. Built into the itinerary is an extra day to explore the high valley of Langshisa Kharka, Kyanjin Ri or Tserko Ri (4985m),where you can see more than 21 crisp, Himalayan peaks. Retracing our previous path, we descend to Syabrubesi and drive back to Kathmandu. Take your chance on this awesome trek!
