Langtang valley is a thriving trekking region close to the Kathmandu valley, with much to see and do and a hub for eco-tourism. The area is renowned for its wilderness and similarity to Tibetan highlands. Trekkers who are in search of natural beauty will be delighted by the rhododendrons, the national flowers of Nepal, when they walk through dense bamboo forests, pass by high waterfalls and view the snow-capped Himalayas that seem close enough to touch. However, the pride of Langtang valley treks are the mountain peaks such as Langtang Lirung, Langtang Ri, Dorje Lakpa, Langshisa Ri and Langtang Himal.
Surrounded by glaciers from all sides, Langtang valley region is also known as the Valley of Glaciers. A throng of glaciers originated from the Himalayas is an excellent reward for your trekking efforts. Another highlight of this trek is Kyanjin Gompa, which dates back to hundreds of years. Rich natural diversities and pastureland are other attractions of Langtang Valley Trek.
You start off Langtang Valley Trek by driving from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi along the bank of the Trishuli River, one of the famous rivers for rafting.
