Overview

Langtang valley trek is one of the most cherished treks to the Langtang region of Nepal. It’s a beautiful combination of wild beauty, wild landscapes, alpine conservation area, Tamang culture, and Tibetan Buddhist religion. Langtang region is one of the most accessible places near Kathmandu to get some close-up views of snow-capped mountains, glaciers, and glacial lakes. Langtang valley takes you just 19 miles north of Kathmandu and allows you to relish the splendor of Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa, Shishapangma, and many other mountains in the Langtang range.

The trail to Langtang valley is enriched with dense alpine forests, extended pastures, mountain valleys, glaciers, and lakes. It all starts in the capital city of Kathmandu. A drive of around eight hours will take us to Syabrubesi, and the commence point of the trek. The trail follows the route of Langtang river, enters the Langtang Conservation Area, and passes dense forests, villages, and farmlands on the way to Langtang village. Further, we ascend up to Kyanjin Ri, a beautiful viewpoint that offers some incredible views of mountains, glaciers, and Langtang valley.

Langtang valley is the major highlight of the Langtang valley trek. The people of the Tamang community mostly inhabit the valley. The people here follow the Tibetan Buddhist religion, which is more similar to Buddhist in Tibet. As the valley lies close to the Tibetan border, you can find resemblance in terms of house designs, culture, and people’s lifestyle. The valley is famous for the government-operated cheese factory. You can get an authentic taste of yak cheese in those factories. Kyanjin gompa, a popular spiritual hub in the Langtang region, is another attraction of Langtang Valley Trek. So, the Langtang valley trek as a whole is an exciting mixture of natural ecstasy and cultural richness. So, are you ready for this journey with World Alpine Treks?
