Langtang Valley Trek
Langtang Trek is an adventurous venture near the Tibetan border and a remote valley surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Trek to Langtang provides every trekker to experience the remoteness of the himalayas. One major difference about the Langtang valley, compared to other Everest and Annapurna region is that, it offers exploring varieties of flora and fauna that is very rare and abundant. Diversified by 14 vegetations and 18 ecosystem types, Langtang National Park is Nepal's first Himalayan protected area. Colorful rhododendron, oak, alder and maple are some of the most common trees found in the Langtang Valley. It is also home to several endangered and protected animals such as Red Panda, Himalayan Black Bear, snow/mountain leopards, goral, Tibetan snowcock etc. Trekking through the lush forests diversified by rich flora and fauna, the trail gradually ascends to glacier alpine zone, where the mountain Langtang Lirung (7246m) starts to shine with its majestic view.
Langtang Valley, which is isolated and high in elevation, is home to the Tamang people, a kind-hearted group who are descendants, who came from Tibet years ago. Tibetan Buddhism plays a big role in their way of life and you will see symbols of it (mani walls, prayer flags, chhortens, etc.) throughout the trail. These, along with the smiling faces of villagers, also inherited by the Tamang ethnic groups add much charm to your trekking experience.
Along the trail, numerous tea houses offer hospitality and meals for nourishment. Starting our trek from Syabru Besi off to Kyanjin Gompa, finally, we arrive at the alpine pastures of Kyanjin Gompa, a spiritual center and the place of an amazing mountain views. We get a 360-degree panoramic crisp view of the tallest peaks in the Langtang region. We get an extra day here to explore the high valley of Langshisa Kharka, Kyamjin Ri or hike to Tserko Ri(4985m),where you'll be able to see more than 21 unique peaks. Retracing our steps, we descend to Syabrubesi and drive back to Kathmandu.
