Classic Langtang Valley Trekking Trip Overview 
The high and isolated Langtang Valley is inhabited by welcoming and culturally rich Tamang people. Their religious practices, language and dress are very similar to those of Tibet than to traditions of their cousins in the middle hills. The area is famous for its pleasant local, unique tradition flavor, Buddhist monasteries and monuments along the way and spectacular mountain view. This charming Langtang valley trek follows the river upstream through forest of pine, bamboo and rhododendron, uphill through pastures to arrive at the alpine meadows of Kyanjin Gompa where you will get exceptional mountain view just a stone’s throw from the Tibetan Boarder. 

The Langtang Region is easily access from Dhunche (district head quarter of Rasuwa) town and National Park office, which is a day´s drive from Kathmandu. The upper reaches of Langtang can be reached in four days of easy hiking; however, it is worthwhile to spend a few days around the forest at Ghoda Tabela to watch for the red panda. Once above Langtang village and the monastery at Kyangjin, Langtang are inhabited by people of Tibetan descent whereas the villagers of Dhunche, Bharkhu and Syabru further down are home to the Tamangs of Nepal´s middle hills. Trekkers can explore the high valley of Langshisa Kharka, Kyamjin Ri or hike to Tserko Ri which is (4985m, 16351ft.) from the sea level and more than 21 snowy peaks are seen from there. 

The forest around Ghode Tabela in the below Langtang Valley and lower the Gosainkund Lakes are inhabited by the very shy red panda, a rare and endangered symbol of a healthy Himalayan ecosystem. Other animals, common to these forests are yellow throated martens, wild boar, Himalayan black bear, Ghorel (Mountain Goat), grey langur monkey and leopard. The region is also home of Himalayan honey guide, mountain pheasant, musk deer and snow leopard. The upper Langtang Valley is one of the few known breeding grounds of the ibis bills besides the Tibetan snow cock and snow partridge. Like other Himalayan nature parks, Langtang has to be explored on foot. There are several possible trails and itinerary to choose from depending on your favorite and time available.

    Wonderful Langtang Trek Experience

    Rating:

    I did Langtang Valley Trek with my husband which was life-long desire to travel to Nepal was the trip of a lifetime thanks to the professional support of Wilderness Excursion. Pre-trip planning was very easy with every query fully answered by Pradip. Our guide Jay Ram was first-class, carrying out every aspect professionally. I believe the pacing of each day as planned by Wilderness Excursion permitted us to successfully acclimate to the altitude. This agency will be the only agency I think for future trekking adventures in Nepal.
