Despite being very close to Kathmandu, the Langtang valley is a tranquil and fantastic trek. The beautiful Langtang valley offers you a gentle walk through the sub-tropical jungle, then through a dense forest of oak, fir, rhododendron, and pine before opening out into alpine meadows and yak pastures.
If you are lucky to trek in spring you will see these pastures floored with the alpine wild flowers and the forests full with orchids and colorful rhododendrons, Nepal's national flower. Keep an eye open as you might witness the local faunas grazing and hunting along your trekking trail. Also at the same time you can get opportunity to take a close look at the lifestyle of the different ethnic groups such as Tamangs and the Tibetan descendents residing in the area.
One of the special things about Langtang is that you can choose to hike your own little peak, either Kyanjing Ri or Tserko Ri, at roughly 4800 and 4980 meters, respectively. From atop either of these two peaks and from Langtang valley also you will be able to cherish the following majestic peaks: Langtang Himal, Dorje Lakpa, Langshisa Ri, Langtang Lirung, Langtang Ri, and many other snow capped mountains.
A visit to one of the Langtang monasteries including one at Kyangjing evokes saintly feelings while a visit to the cheese factory located at the high altitude will definitely bring a “wow” out of your mouth, looking at the hard work of the locals in such a remote district.
We are looking forward to providing you with a fantastic trek and tour in Nepal, Kathmandu and the Himalayas.
