Langtang Trekking

Langtang is a region in the Himalays of Nepal to the north of the Kathmandu valley and bordering Tibet. The Langtang National Park is located in the area. About 4,500 people live inside the park, and many more depend on it for timber and firewood.

The park contains a wide variety of climatic zones, from subtropical to alpine. Approximately 25% of the park is forested. Trees include the deciduous oak and maple, and evergreens like pine, and various types of rhododendron. Animal life includes Himalayan black bear, the goat-like Himalayan thar etc. There are also stories of Yeti sightings.The park contains the Gosaikunda lakes, sacred to hindus. Popular activities for tourists in the park include trekking, climbing, and white water rafting.

The people living in the highlands of the Langtang region are certainly Nepalese but being the descendant of the Tibetan origin, they look like the Tibetans. The majority of the residents are Tamangs & lamas.  Hence, Langtang region is one of the most popular trekking regions for those wishing a short trek from Kathmandu into the Himalayas influenced by Tibetan lifestyle. Moreover, accompanying with the varieties of rhododendron, bamboo forests, majestic waterfalls and snow-capped Himalayas make the trek one of the most diverse treks nearby Kathmandu.

The LANGTANG TREK can be done in as little as a week, but day hikes in the upper valley should detain you for at least another two or three days, and given more time you’ll want to add Gosainkund to the itinerary. Most people start at Syaphru Besi (1400m), a very “local”, bumpy (and, at points, vertiginous) 8–9hr bus ride from Macha Pokhari, near Kathmandu’s Gongabu Bus Park.

Food and lodging here are less luxurious than in the Annapurna and Everest regions, but lodges are mostly perfectly comfortable. All these routes take you into Langtang National Park

The best seasons for the Langtang trek are Autumn (mid Sept to mid Dec) and Spring(March to May)  The weather is sunny and warm, with outstanding views but the nights are little cold. Winter (Dec, Jan, Feb) is also good for Langtang valley trek though it’s colder.

Langtang village has been completely swiped away by a massive avalanche followed by the massive earthquake in April and rebuilding is going on.

This trip can be  combine with Gosaikunda trek so you can customize this trip by requesting Adventure Sherpa Tracks anytime.
