This Langtang Valley Trek is a comparatively challenging yet equally rewarding than other treks in the Langtang Region. Please note that this Trek is the best alternative for Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The experience of exploring hidden mysterious mountains, observing traditional Himalayan culture, capturing shining peaks, entering into ancient Gompas, and soaking into pure natural flora and fauna will remain with you forever.
Langtang Valley Trek starts with a drive from Kathmandu to Dhunche through a rough pastoral road and dense forest. You enter Langtang National Park – the habitat of a wide range of plants, birds, and animal species. You may encounter endangered wild animals such as Black Bears, Snow Leopards, Musk Deers, and Red Pandas.
During your trek, you stroll on the rugged trails, pass through the various traditional settlements and green forests, observe spectacular snow-capped peaks, climb cliffs, cross rivers, and touch still lakes and white glaciers. Also, you visit the 700 years old monastery – Kyanjin Gompa and collect the experience of living with the local.
In addition, you will get awestruck with the breathtaking views of the incredible mountain ranges such as Langtang, Lirung Himal, Ganesh Himal, including Annapurna ranges, Manaslu range, Lakpa Dorje, and a few other peaks. Find yourself standing at the top of Tserigo Ri, capturing the jaw-dropping scenes of the Himalayan landscapes.
