Langtang Valley Trekking Hightlights

  • Around beautiful Langtang valley enclosed with high mountains,
  • Exploring old heritage and Buddhist culture of Tamang and Hylamo tribes,
  • Adventure from Langtang to Helambu crossing high picturesque Ganaja-la pass
  • An adventure to fascinating destinations around Mid North West/East Himalaya.

Langtang Valley Trekking is towards the north of the Kathmandu Valley and just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. To the west of Langtang is Ganesh Himal with a range of 6,000 to 7,000 meters. The northern parts of the area largely fall within the boundaries of Langtang National Parks.

The main ethnic groups here are Sherpa and Tamang whose religious practices, languages and dress are much similar to those of Tibet.

Langtang Valley Trekking offers an opportunity to explore villages, climb small peaks and visit glaciers at a comfortably low elevation. The forests in this region have temperate and sub- alpine vegetation. Wildlife includes migratory birds, deer, monkeys, Thar, and Pika. The scenery here is spectacular and the trekking is more adventurous.

The main highlights of the Langtang Excursion Trekking are Langtang National Park, Kyangjing Gompa, Yak Cheese factory, typical Tamang villages and diversity of flora and fauna.
