The Langtang valley trekking is one of the closest treks to Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. The trip takes you through the Langtang National Park which lies directly north of Kathmandu. Langtang Region is as lofty and remote as any of the Tibetan highlands, and its peaceful rural vistas will warm your heart despite its close proximity to Kathmandu. This region was once a prime route for trade and commerce with Tibet. The route map of Langtang valley trekking was introduced to the tourists only after 1976.
The Langtang region is now becoming as popular as the Everest Region & Annapurna Region of Nepal.
For those wishing to experience the joy of trekking the highlands in Nepal but are limited on time, the Langtang Valley Trek is just perfect! You will walk along the Langtang River, through beautiful Rhododendron forests, and to several glacial lakes. This will be an adventure you’ll remember for the rest of your life. This area is also called the Valley of Glaciers because it is surrounded by icy glaciers that came from the huge Himalayan peaks.
Langtang Valley is dominated by the Himalayan peaks of Langtang Lirung (7,234 m), Langtang Ri (7,205 m), Dorje Lakpa (6,966 m) and Langshisa Ri (6,427 m). Tserko Ri, which is 4984m high, is the highest point on the trek. The beauty of this region is truly seen from Tserko Ri.
This trip is great because it gives you a chance to see the rare red Panda and has great views of the Langtang mountain ranges and valley. In addition to this, we also get to go to one of the Yak Cheese factories in the area, which sells real Yak cheese, and Kyanjing Gompa, an old Buddhist monastery with great views of Ganchenpo Ri, Langsisha Ri, and other mountains.
The people who reside in the Langtang region’s highlands are Nepalese, yet the majority of them have Tibetan ancestors. They even resemble Tibetans and have deep cultural and religious ties to Tibet. The different kinds of rhododendron, dense bamboo forests, dancing waterfalls, and close-up views of the snow-capped Himalayas are all great reasons to visit this area. All of these things make Trekking the lovely Langtang Valley one of the most different treks that are close to ancient Kathmandu.
