Langtang Valley Trek

Langtang Valley Trek

The Langatand  Valley Trek, while offering many of the benefits of the Helumbu Trek, also gives you the opportunity to get right in among the Himalayan peaks and to walk through remote and relatively unpopulated areas. If you want real adventure then the Langatang and Helambu Trek can be linked by high altitude passes, either via the Gosainkund lakes or across the Ganja La at 5106m (see Langtang Trek to Helambu Trek Crossings later in this section.)

Langatand  Ligrun at 7246m is visible to the north of Kathmandu on clear days. The langtang Trek can take up to two weeks (although a three –day approach to the heart of the langtang valley suggested here) and lead to the foot of glacier high in the Langatang valley. The trail passes through Tibetan and Tamang village and offers fine views of the Ganesh himal across to the north-west Although the trek passes through comparatively lightly populated and undeveloped areas,it is still possible to stay at village inns at various points along the route. Ascending from just 541m at Trisuli BaZaar to 3800m at kyanjin Gompa the trail passes through an ever-changing climate and offers trekkers an exceptional diversity of scenery and culture.
