Langtang Region Treks
The Langtang valley Trekking, “the valley of glaciers”, is the closest trekking region to Kathmandu. The Langtang region, directly north of Kathmandu, just south of the Tibetan border, helps us to enjoy snow-covered peaks, a mild climate, and friendly hospitable inhabitants which makes it the ideal trek. The Langtang valley is populated by Sherpa and Tamang families and offers splendid varieties of natural and cultural diversity with spectacular Himalayan views. Langtang, Gosainkunda, Helambu, Panch Pokhari and Tamang heritage are the major areas for trekking in Langtang region. From here we can experience the lifestyles of diverse ethnic groups along the trail, which follows ancient trading routes and passes through prosperous trading villages.
The Langtang Trek provides an opportunity to see nearly all of the Nepalese Himalayan mountain range from Annapurna in the west, to Makalu in the east. It is sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. It also provides different experiences that could not be found elsewhere and has over 70 glaciers of varying sizes; the Langtang and Ganesh Himal mountain ranges including Gosainkunda, Parvatikunda, Bhairavkunda, Dudhkunda etc are the important sacred places of Hindus and Buddhists. This region is popular for its culture, religion and a splendid Himalaya range, beautiful waterfalls and green forests.
