Enter into the spectacular living geology of the Langtang region that lies to the south of the Tibetan border, between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range to the south. Stunning glacial valleys and breathtaking snowy white peaks await trekkers along this adventure in the Rasuwa district of Nepal.

 

The trail ascends through lush oak and rhododendron forests, which transform into peaceful hemlock and woodlands at a higher elevation. After crossing an ancient glacial moraine, the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas loom into view as you reach Kyanjin Gompa.

 

Langtang is often considered to be the third major trekking area of Nepal (after Everest and Annapurna regions) and it shares many of the attractions of those famous areas – beautiful mountain views, a rich culture and good facilities for trekkers.

 

The traveller enters an awe-inspiring U-shaped glacial valley before arrival into the villages of Langtang (3300m) and Kyangjin (3700m). Kyangjin boasts a cheese factory with delicious yoghurt. Ambitious travellers can undertake several side treks from these villages including the Langtang Glacier, Tsergo Ri (5033m) and Kyanjin Ri (4770m), which afford spectacular mountain views.

 

This is a hike for the moderately fit and travellers who enjoy unadulterated nature. Many trekkers combine this adventure with the Gosainkund Lake (4380m) and Helambu treks to have a full two-week adventure spanning sacred lakes, remote villages, ending up in Kathmandu.
