Langtang Trekking

Langtang Trek

Langtang trekking is a popular and classic trek. This trek route goes through traditional, ethnic villages and untouched forests on the way to the peaks of Langtang-Lirung. The highlights of this tour include a visit to the Langtang valley, Kyangin Gompa, Langtang Gompa, plenty of yak heards on alpine meadows and the Lirung Glacier. One can also climb the Lang Sisa Peak and visit Lake Gosaikunda, which is nearby. In summer each year, the valley floor and alpine slopes of Langtang bloom profusely with primula, poppy and other alpine flowers that makes the trekking more exciting and memorable.


Langtang trekking is the name given to the treks from the name of Langtang valley in central Nepal. Langtang is a narrow valley lying south of Tibetan border. The valley lies between main Himalaya range to the north and small snowy peaks to the south. One can catch a bus to Trishuli Bajaar from Kathmandu and from there again drive down to Rasuwa headquarters Dhunche and then to Syabrubesi from where the trek begins.


The important mountains in Langtang region are -
1. Langtang Lirung 7246m
2. Gang Chhenpo 6388m
3. Naya Kangri 5846m
4. Dorje Lakpa 6966m


Other mountains like Hiunchuli, Manaslu and Ganesh Himal as well as the Shishapangma mountain of Tibet are seen from some parts of the trek. Just next to Langtang valley is the beautiful Gosainkunda Lake, also an important Hindu pilgrimage site. Gosainkunda is also a popular trekking destination. From Gosainkunda, Helambu trekking is closer. They are just separated by a mountain pass. Helambu is a culturally rich Sherpa settlement and easily accessible from Kathmandu on a half day drive. Langtang, Gosainkunda and Helambu are independent treks on their own but they can be combined to make treks from one week to 15 days long.
