In Nepal, Langtang Valley is one of the most visited regions and the third popular trekking destination, located near Kathmandu, this region is nestled in the north of the Himalayan range, south of the Tibetan border and southwest of Langtang and Ganesh Himal range. This valley trek combines with the splendid views of stunning Langtang range and other peaks. On the way, you get to visit the most scared Gosaikunda Lake and the beautiful Helambu valley.

Langtang Valley Trek is relatively easy trek as being covered by the Langtang National Park where on every trail to your trekking destination, you get to explore various flora and fauna of this region. The main attraction of this trekking is the sights of the magnificent mountain from Langtang range, Langtang Lirung, Himalayan glacier, unique flora and fauna, sacred Gosikunda Lake and explore the exclusive typical culture of this region; the Sherpa and Hyolmo community (similar to the Tibetan culture). You get to discover the livelihood of this remote region which is far away from modernization though being close to Kathmandu. They have well preserved their own ancient civilization.

For trekking to this region, we take a scenic drive to Syrabesi which takes almost 8 hours drive from Kathmandu. We begin to get a slight glimpse of the Ganesh Himal as we move along. From here, our main trekking begins through the terraced fields and forests as we cross the Bhotekoshi River. Following the Langtang River and gradually ascending to bamboo forests through rugged trails, we head to the Lama Hotel.

En route you may also spot some wild animals and birds on your trail. As we are headed to the Langtang valley, we slowly start to get close views of the mountains and from here our trial is fairly easy. We will be acclimatizing here. And then we reach Kyanjin Ri at (3745 m) which is one of the ancient Tibetan monasteries. We will also be visiting a local cheese factory here.

As this valley is on the lap of the Langtang Lirung (7245 m), we get the beautiful and splendid mountainous views that we desired From here we will retrace back from where we began and drive back to the Kathmandu. All the trekking in Langtang region can be attempted throughout the year.
