Langtang Trekking Region

The Langtang Valley is a beautiful alpine region to the North of Kathmandu bordering Tibet. The Langtang trek offers the greatest diversity with the least effort of Any trek in Nepal. There is a series of north- south running valleys that provide a variety of possible trekking routes. The Gosainkund and Helambu regions lie to its south; these can be combined with Langtang to make treks from 7 days to 21 days. The area was designated Nepal's first Himalayan National Park in 1971, it is inhabited by Tamang people whose religious practices, language and dress are much more similar to those of Tibet than to the traditions of their cousins in the middle hills. Here the high alpine scenery, with mountains visible from inhabited nature of the country makes this an ideal destination for trekkers who are on a tight time schedule.


Langtang Valley Trekking

A trek to Langtang valley starts with an overland journey to Dunche, the main trading post of the area. Though there are now many commercial lodges in Langtang village, in another section you can observe the distinct life style of the original inhabitants in Langtang village that might be interesting for you I think. From Dhunche we spend four days hiking up through this beautiful alpine valley to Kyangjin where we rest for a day for some exploration of the high mountains and glacial systems.

Ganja La Pass Trekking

To cross from Langtang into Helambu, via the Ganja La pass, is serious undertaking requiring good equipment. For three to four days there are no tea house facilities so we have to be fully sufficient. From the pass the views across the valley to the peaks of the Langtang Himal are particularly good. In the distance you can see Shishapangma, the only 800 meters peak entirely in China (Tibet). After crossing the pass we reach to Tarkeghayang (largest settlements of Tamang in Helambu).
