HIGHLIGHTS:

Although the Langtang Valley can be reached by a day’s drive from the Kathmandu Valley / Pokhara, this area is still unknown to most trekkers.
While many recognize the names Everest Base Camp Trek, Annapurna Circuit, and Annapurna Base Camp Trek, few recognize the name Langtang Valley Trek.

Dominated by the Langtang Himalayas, this valley trek is relatively short but runs through rhododendrons and bamboo forests alongside thundering waterfalls and stunning snow-capped mountains.
The trail takes you to an altitude of 4,000m (13,123 ft), and if you want to go higher, you’d not want to miss seeing the sunrise from the Tserko Ri at 5,000m (16,404 ft).

This diverse trek introduces you to the Tamangs and the Sherpas Buddhist culture, and the ancient monastery of Kyanjin Gompa, situated near Tserko, upholds this tradition. The spectacular views on this trek include Dorje Lakpa (6,990 m/22,933 ft), Langtang Ri (6,370 m/20,898 ft), and Langtang Lirung (7,245 m/23,769 ft).
The trek passes through Langtang National Park, a pristine countryside with majestic flora and fauna, yak pastures, and local cheese factories! Himalayan pheasants, Himalayan deer, Himalayan bears, monkeys, and the elusive red panda are native to this region.

Langtang Village was utterly destroyed during the April 2015 earthquake. The resilient locals have been busy rebuilding; teahouses and lodges have been rebuilt and opened. The best way for people to help us continue visiting this area.
This is a perfect trek for those who want to trek this off-beat track and see something completely different from many of the more touristy areas in the country.
Similarly, this is the perfect introduction for those discovering Nepal for the first time.
