Duration: 14 Days
The spectacular Langtang Valley trek is a moderate trek that takes you the closest you can get to the massive snow-capped mountains from Kathmandu valley without gaining any strenuous altitude level. Langtang is located 20 miles north of Kathmandu and is one of the lesser spoiled national parks of Nepal. The park boundary extends all the way to the Tibetan border.
The Langtang Valley trek can be a perfect place to experience the Tibetan life style and culture as is home to ethnically diverse people: the Tamangs, Yolmus and Bhotias, who originated from Tibet.
The peaks that can be seen in this trek are the Langtang Himal, Dorje Lakpa, Langshisa, and Ganja La pass. Yala peak stands out and Tibetan ranges can be seen from its summit.
