TRIP OVERVIEW

Langtang region is Nepal’s one of the most popular destination often known among trekkers as Nepal best-kept secrets. The region is situated just north 30kms north of the Kathmandu valley, guarded by lofty white peaks on either side. The Langtang valley trek will reveal the ancient and unique Tibetan culture and tradition of different ethnic groups in the lap of beautiful mountains. The variation in elevation blended with the complex topography and geology havs resulted in a special kind of vegetation in the region.

The valley was hugely affected by the great earthquake of 2015 but with quick renovation and reconstruction efforts. The area has been reopened for trekking. The comparatively less trekked route of Langtang leads through a trial of diverse landscape ranging from evergreen forests, raging streams and pouring waterfalls to sub-alpine grasslands. Trekkers can have the stunning view of the central mountains, Langtang Lirung (7,246m) the tallest in the region, Gang Chhenpo (6388m), Lenpo Gang (7083m), Dorje Lakpa (6990m) among others. Legendary mountaineer Bill Tillman had said that Langtang was one of the world’s most beautiful valleys. To the valley’s south are the Chimse Danda ridge, crossed by Ganja La Pass at (5,122m) and majestic Jugal Himal culminating in Dorje Lakpa.

The valley is also known as the Valley of Glaciers as there are over 70 glaciers coming from the Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa and other peaks that go into the dwindling Langtang Khola. There are also equally gratifying high-altitude lakes like Gosainkunda, Dudhkunda, Bhairavkunda, and Parvatikunda which are also of great religious value to Hindus and Buddhists alike. The pristine high-altitude lakes are one of the highlights of the whole trek and are a increasingly popular destination for both Nepalese trekkers and international trekkers.

The area is largely protected under Langtang National Park, the first national park in the country and the trekkers can have sighting of rare and exotic Himalayan flora and faunas such as snow leopard and red panda. One can also get an insight into the unique lifestyle and culture of the Tamang people, the predominant inhabitants of the valleys. We can see and experience the unique craftsmanship of the Tamangs that reflect in their intricately built stone houses, wooden porches and festivals and traditions. The trade between Langtang valley in Keyrung in Tibet is another fascinating aspect of the region which has been virtually unchanged for more than 100 years.

The trek to the Langtang valley can be customized as per the wish of trekkers. There are many routes and packages available such as Langtang Trek, Langtang Gosaikunda Trek, Bhairavkunda Trek among others customized as per the trekkers’ wish. There are full-fledged tourist facilities available in Syabru and Dhunche and established accommodation facilities in the Gosaikunda and Langtang route.

The most suitable time for Langtang trek is autumn (October and November) and spring (April and May). The months are chosen on the basis of climate and visibility. Winter months are not advised since there is good chance of heavy snowfall. Our itinerary has been designed by a team of professional mountaineers and guides keeping in mind the time required for acclimatization, climate, and visibility among others.
