The Langtang Valley trek is popular among those seeking a great Himalayan adventure in a short period of time.
This trek brings you to the Langtang Valley, just south of the Tibetan border. We begin with a bus ride from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi, the starting point of the Langtang trek. After reaching Syabrubesi, the trek begins in a lush valley in a tropical environment. Along side the trail will be green hills, large patches of rice paddies, and Nepal's national flower, the rhododendron. You will also get to experience an abundance of birds and other wildlife such as wild boar and monkeys who all inhabiting this region. In the background looms several snow-capped mountains giving you knowledge about that soon you will leave the tropical climate and enter colder climatic zones.
From Langtang village, the trail continues to Kyanjin Gompa (3,740 m) a place with not only great mountain views but also the local Yala Cheese Factory. A visit to the Yala Cheese Factory (4.633 m) and the small lakes beyond Yala is worthwhile, and we will make that excursion if you feel up for it.
As you move up the Langtang Valley, the Tibetan influence becomes more noticeable. Langtang is one of the few areas in Nepal highly influenced by Tibet, bordering the region to the North.
Another highlight of this trip is the day hike up Tserko Ri (4,984m), a 'small' and safe peak to hike in the area. Although challenging, when atop you will be rewarded with spectacular Himalayan views and a sensation of achievement. If you do not feel up for the hike another option is to trek further up the valley and explore more ground.
We are looking forward to providing you with a fantastic trip.
