Overview


The trek to Langtang Valley is a moderate-grade trek with a maximum altitude of 4,773m that takes trekkers the closest they can get to the massive snow-capped mountains from Kathmandu Valley. The Langtang Valley trek altitude makes it perfect for moderately-experienced trekkers since the altitude is not too strenuous. The trek only runs for 10 short days, and still allows trekkers to have a unique and enjoyable experience. This is also very ideal for trekkers who have very little time to spare but still want to make the most out of their Nepal trekking experience.

 

 

The Langtang Valley is located at the northernmost area of Kathmandu, about 20 miles from Kathmandu. The Langtang Valley trek route has become one of the most popular trek routes among our clients since the Langtang Valley is known as one of Nepal’s lesser-spoiled national parks, allowing it to gain the reputation as one of the world’s most beautiful valleys. This means that trekkers can enjoy the authentic view and experience offered by the Langtang valley trek in Nepal. Langtang Valley is also very vast and wide, as its border extends well way into Tibetan boundaries.

 

 

The Langtang Valley trek has a lot of breathtaking views, which can be enjoyed by all trekkers. These spectacular mountain views include the Langtang Himal, the Dorje Lakpa, Ganja La Pass, and Langshisa. Moreover, the Yala peak and Tibetan ranges are standouts and can be seen from the trek’s summit. The Langtang Lirung (7,246m) dominates the scenery at the valley as this is the highest peak that can be viewed from the trek’s location.

 

Trekkers will also be able to experience the rich cultural heritage and the lush ethnic diversity that surrounds Langtang Valley as the trek’s route will be passing through several villages that are home to Tibetan tribes, including the Yolmus, the Tamangs, and the Bhotias.

 

We at Himalayan Treks allow full customisation for our customers, which is why we also have add-ons and trip extensions which can be perused by interested trekkers. Some popular trip extensions availed by our clients include a day or more exploring the historic sites of KathmanduBhaktapur or why not pay a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Chitwan National Park. Likewise, it's also possible to extend your trek to link it with other treks in the same Langtang area, for instance the Holy Gosaikunda trek. However, if you are looking for a different experience altogether, we can recommend the Everest Base Camp trek and the Annapurna Circuit trek.
