Langtang Valley Trek, an epic trekking experience close to the Kathmandu valley yet quaint and untouched by the ills of development, is no less than the popular Annapurna Base Camp or Everest Base Camp Trek. A trekking experience with less crowded trails, breathtaking scenery, the view of majestic mountains and the unique culture of the Tamang community, trekkers have a good alternative to the popular trekking trails. A shorter trekking trail and yet consisting all the elements of classical trail, Langtang Valley Trek is a must for explorers seeking novelty in the trekking adventures, wilderness with lush valleys and hills, pristine and perennial rivers, lush forests with vivid pink and red rhododendron flowers besides other floras, diverse vegetation and landscape, and delicious local yak Cheese! Whether you are a Buddhist or not, the gompas and monasteries in the region are a must-visit due to the historical and cultural importance, a well-preserved aura of Buddhist culture and tradition since ages, and beautiful heritage. Langtang Valley Trek begins with a drive from the culturally rich Nepalese capital city of Kathmandu to the scenic village of Syabru Besi. In this trek with lower elevation, you shall be always in the company of lush vegetation and warm welcoming hosts. After the sightseeing in Kathmandu, we shall reach to Syabru Besi on a trip through a twisting road that offered a views of scenic foothills, views of mountains including the Langtang Himalayan Range and the Ganesh Himal, past terraced farmlands, interesting settlements and biotic diversity of Langtang National Park, you shall explore the beautiful valley. Across the mighty Bhote Koshi River sourced in Tibet, you shall hike to the Lama Hotel through the trail with rich greenery and home to rare Red Panda, monkeys, and bears. Continue along the riverside through the forest, small settlements and grasslands, give way to the train of Yaks and locals en route and proceed steadily to the old and traditional village of Langtang. Famous for marvelous scenery, this village on the lap of Langtang Lirung Peak is home to Tamang culture, ancient monasteries, and famous Yak Cheese Factory. Climb on to Sindum and Yamphu villages, cross Laja River, trek past beautiful stupas and across suspension bridges spanning across deep gorges and over the lateral moraine to reach Kyanjin Gompa. Hike on to Kyanjin Ri for a spectacular view of Dorge Lakpa, Langshisa, Dakpachhe, and Gangchembu peaks and then a descent through previous routes to reach Syabru Besi and then drive to Kathmandu. A trek requiring a moderate level of fitness, Langtang Valley Trek can also be extended to Gosaikunda, holy lake for both Hindu and Buddhists and the culturally rich Tamang Heritage Trail. A region termed ‘the most beautiful valley in the region’ by some explorers and travelers, Langtang valley Trek provides you with wonderful photographic opportunities. It is an easy to moderate trek from February to May and September to December as the best trekking seasons. Even the novice trekkers with the ability to walk 5-6 hours can complete the trek.
