Langtang Valley is located 60 km as the crow flies to the north of Kathmandu and is the third most popular trekking area in Nepal after Annapurna and Everest Regions. The valley lies just to the south of the Tibetan border, is sandwiched between the main Himalayan Range to the north and the Langtang National Park to the south. The imposing Langtang Lirung (7246m), Langtang II (6,596m) and Kinshung (6,781m) lie to the north while the lower range to the south is dominated by Gangchenpo (6388m)….
and Naya Kanga (5846m).
You will experience snow capped mountains, rhododendron and pine forests, beautiful villages and terraced farmlands along the way. Langtang Valley is dominated by the Tamang people who are of Tibetan origin and practise Tibetan Buddhism. Overnight teahouse stays in villages allow the opportunity to explore their traditional way of life, enjoy the hospitality of these people and sample their traditional food.
The Langtang Valley Trek is an excellent alternative to the Annapurna and Everest region treks as it provides stunning scenery, comfortable lodges and a unique cultural experience, all with easier access from Kathmandu and less crowded trails. It is a relatively less costly and a good option for trekkers with time constraints.
