Langtang valley is situated to the North of Kathmandu and is sandwiched between the Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. This great trekking adventure in the Langtang region combines spectacular views of the Himalayas with great cultural insights.
One of the highlights of the Langtang Circuit trek is the rhododendron and bamboo forests. Other highlights are animal wildlife, majestic waterfalls and soothing hot springs. You will also be getting magnificent views of the snowcapped white mountain giants including Mt. Langtang Lirung (7,200m), Mt. Ganesh Himal (7,600m), Mt. Langtang II (7,227m), Mt. Gang Chhenpo (6,388m), Mt. Naya Kanga ri (5,846m), and finally Mt. Dorje Lakpa (6,966m). Aside from great mountains we will also see the beautiful Gosaikunda lake.
The Langtang circuit trek route goes through traditional Tamang villages. We will reach Langtang Village and the friendly Sherpa village near Kyanjing Gompa (3,870m). At Gosainkunda lake we will watch the sun rise above the lake, setting its sun rays on the Himalayan mountains. We will also cross the Laurebinayak pass at 4,609m.
All in all this is a great trek and can be done by anybody who can walk 5-6 hours a day. If you are in doubt as to your level of fitness please add porters, as they will then carry your backpack. A porter can carry up to 30 kg.
We are looking forward to be showing you the beautiful Langtang trekking area. Please see the Itinerary for a day by day route.
