Langtang Trek

Langtang trekking is one of the short trekkings in Nepal and is popular due to the easy access to the region within short period of time from Kathmandu and yet the place is left with secret beauties. Trekking in Langtang passes through lush forest and less visited diverse ethnic settlements where the culture and tradition are similar to Tibetans due to its proximity to the Tibetan boarder. The trek offers the beautiful sceneries of pine forest, slow moving rivers and swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow–capped peaks, grassy downs and meadows. The Langtang valley itself is a valley of glaciers and plethora of mountains surrounding it making cradle for the mountaineers. Langtang trekking takes us to the vantage point Kanjin Gompa for the spectacular panoramic views of stunning Langtang Lirung (7246m), Lenpo Gang (7083m) and Dorje Lakpa (6990m).
