Langtang TrekkingThe trekking to the Langtang valley in central Nepal is one of the popular classic treks in Nepal. Langtang lies north of Kathmandu and some of the Langtang mountains can be seen even from Kathmandu. Langtang is a narrow valley lying south of Tibetan border. The valley lies between main Himalaya range to the north and small snowy peaks to the south. Langtang trekking is a popular and classic trek. It offers opportunity to explore ethnic Tamang villages, climb small peaks and see the glaciers at relatively low altitude and within short time frame. The walking is also not strenuous. Once you reach the valley the mountain scenery is exceptionally beautiful. Langtang trek also offers some of the oldest monasteries , vibrant Tibetan-Buddhist culture and plenty of Yak herds on alpine meadows.In summer each year, the valley floor and alpine slopes of Langtang valley bloom profusely with primula, poppy and other alpine flowers making a grand spectacle of wild flowers .Langtang trekking involves no flights.The trail head of Langtang trek is Dhunche or Syabrubensi , reachable on a 7-8 hour jeep drive from Kathmandu.The important mountains in Langtang region are -

Langtang Lirung 7246m
Gang Chhenpo 6388m
Naya Kangri 5846m
Dorje Lakpa 6966m

Other mountains like Hiunchuli, Manaslu and Ganesh Himal as well as the Shishapangma mountain of Tibet are seen from some view points on the trek.

Just next to Langtang valley is the beautiful Gosainkunda Lake. A mountain lake, and an important Hindu pilgrimage site in the Himalaya, Gosainkunda is also a popular trekking destination. Seperated by a mountain pass from Gosainkunda is the Helambu region.Helambu is not high, is a culturally rich Sherpa settlement and easily accessible from Kathmandu on a half day drive. Langtang, Gosainkunda and Helambu are independent treks on their own but they can be combined to make treks from one week to 15 days long .With our experience, we prefer to offer Langtang and Gosainkunda trek combined for the best experience .Hence there are two main treks in Langtang region.

Langtang Gosainkunda trek

This trek is definitely the best trek in Langtang region as it combines the beautiful Langtang valley and the pristine Gosainkunda lake (4300m). Important both for alpine scenery and cultural experience.

Helambu Trekking

This trek also offers good mountain views but it is more favoured for the Sherpa and Tamang culture of Helambu. This is ideal for people who want to enjoy mild hiking and cultural experience for a shorter time.As you do not ascend higher tha 3500m, this trek can be done even in December and January.
