Langtang Trek is a fairly difficult but fantastic trek in the Langtang National Park. The trek provides sundry of experiences. These involve exploring the wilderness of the national park and witnessing some extraordinary views of the snow-clad mountain peaks in Langtang Valley. Moreover, you also get to see the lifestyle of the century-old civilizations living in the region.
An Unspoiled Place
The Langtang valley is mostly untouched by the developments of the modern world. Most places are rural and unexplored by trekkers. We traverse through diverse landscapes along with villages, monasteries, and gumbas. The unexplored nature of the geography entails a calm setting and serene solidarity during the trek. Moreover, the trek also takes us through Gosaikunda Lakes where the devotees take a bath in freezing cold water. It also takes us to the Helembu region where the extraordinary lifestyle and culture of the Tamangs, as well as Sherpas, will amaze us.
Langtang Trek is perfect for adventurers looking for a long trekking expedition in the Himalayas. While not an easy trek, it is moderately difficult and is ideal for backpackers who have trekked a few times. Along with the views of the mountains, this trek offers you some excellent exploration of birds, animals, and plants found in the Langtang region.
Navigating Remote Trails
Traveling along the Trishuli River northward, we pass through Dhunche and Syabrubensi. We then enter the Langtang valley, cross rivers several times, and pass through rhododendron forests. Moreover, we encounter several glacial moraines on the way. Walking further up the valley, we reach the famous Kyangin Gompa. There, we’ll taste the famous local cheese and Yak’s milk. We hike further north up to Nubamatang, which is quite close to Tibet. From there, we trace back our steps to Syabru and Sin Gompa and finally reach the sacred Gosaikunda. The return trip will involve trekking through the beautiful Chisapani-Sundarijal route to reach Kathmandu.
Langtang Valley Trek is a truly unique experience. This trek, while lesser-known, provides you distinct experience compared to the Annapurna and Everest treks. The 15-day trek is a long expedition, but completion of the trek is quite fulfilling. If you’re looking for a unique experience in the Himalayas, then this trek has to be on your bucket list. Additionally, you can do this trek with us any time of the year, although we recommend the seasons of spring and autumn. Moreover, we provide the Langtang Trek at an affordable price with an experienced guide to accompany you all the way.
