Description

A moderate trek in Nepal along the foothills of Central Himalayas in Nepal, where culture & nature overflows despite the massive affects of quake 2015- Langtang Valley Trek

Being closely located to the epicenter of destructive 2015 earthquake, Langtang suffered badly due to the biggest natural disaster that hit Nepal on April 25 2015. However, the hard work of locals and tourism stakeholders of Nepal, the region has been opened as before for trekking adventure. Trekking to Langtang now could be the huge support to boost the local economy.

Langtang Valley Trek is full of diverse and unique aspects culturally and naturally. The region has been the home to ethnic Tibetan Tamangs for centuries. Hence the nomadic form of Tibetan culture can be seen in most of the villages of Langtang Valley. The culture and the lifestyles natives of Langtang Valley enjoy are simply beautiful. The major landmarks of the region, Kyangjin Gompa and Langtang Village were badly affected during the quake. The rapid recovery to reinstate these traditional habitats is almost done and hence the cultural values of these destinations could be well observed during the Langtang Valley Trek.

Moreover, the natural wonders of the region are incredibly beautiful. Langtang is the closest approach to the Himalayas from Nepalese capital, Kathmandu. The Himalayan panorama is dominated by Langtang Lirung (7246m), the highest peak in the region. Gang Chenpo and Naya Kanga lie to the south and Dorje Lapka (6966m) soars high in the east of the Langtang valley. Langtang also houses over 70 glaciers and elevated sacred lakes like Parvatikunda, Gosainkunda, Dudhkunda and Bhairavkunda. Tsergo Ri, a ridgetop over Kyangjin caters 360 degree view of Himalayan panorama.

The trek can be undertaken anytime of the year but the best time to go for the trek in between April to June and August to October. The trek starts at Syabrubeshi and ends here.
