Langtang Valley Trekking

Langtang Valley Trekking starts from the lower Langtang, through its forests and among the villages and farmlands of its people, many of who are of Tibetan origin. The valley offers pine forest, swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow- capped peaks, grassy downs and meadows strewn with daisies and wild primulas.

langtang is closer to Kathmandu than other trekking regions, it is lies in the area of Tibetan culture and the home of the Yak. In the upper part of the valley there are snow ridges spanning angry torrents, high passes enveloped in mist, tiny lakes of crystalline brightness and glaciated mountain giants. The trek starts from Dhunche or Syabru Bensi and ends at the same point.

During the trek we can view the Langtang National Park, with wildlife and interesting animals and birds such as monkeys, musk deer, Danphe, national bird of Nepal, red pandas etc. From Langtang village, the track continues to Kyangjin Gompa (3,740 m), the site of the Yala Cheese Factory.
