The Langtang Valley is a beautiful hidden alpine valley full of birds animals and rare plants. The valley forms part of the Central Nepal Himalaya, north of Kathmandu. The Langtang Valley trek is considered by people who have been there to be one of best short treks in Nepal.
The area is less visited by trekkers due mainly to its remoteness.Trekking here is great and offers a pristine experience, fascinating people and rich culture. As you trek up the valley there is plenty of time to relax into the local the way of life. It is also known for the large amount of wildlife and bird life to be studied along the way. Tamangis (the main ethnic group) are Tibetan in every aspect as the border with Tibetan border only twenty miles away.
Trekking high up into the valley you find yourself almost at the base of the Himalayas. The beauty of the trek is it provides “a high mountain feel” without it being too difficult. Hiking further up the valley there is also an extensive glacier system to explore.
There are many ways to vary treks in this region: one popular choice is to extend the nine day Langtang Valley hike for a further five days to the Sacred Lakes of Gosainkund (4300m) and the Helambu region. The Sacred Lakes in Hindu scriptures were created by Lord Shiva when he jabbed his trisul (trident) into the ground to form the headwaters of the Trisuli River.
Langtang was badly affected by the earthquake of 2015 in Nepal.People have now rebuilt their lives and welcome you in their own special way.
