Quoting Bill Tilman, Langtang Valley Trekking is an adventure to “the most beautiful valley in the world.” Langtang Valley Trek, reputed as “the valley of glaciers trek” is an adrenaline expedition towards snow shrouded mountain that is in closest proximity from the country’s capital city- Kathmandu. Being easily accessible and pursuing the easy trekking trail makes Langtang Region the third most popular trekking destination in Nepal.
Enrolling in Langtang Valley Trekking will be a mixed experience of cultural trekking and natural sightseeing as the trail stretches through remote lands of pretty Tamang and Sherpa hamlets retaining their time worn culture, traditions and ways of life undeviated from the originality traversing through tree line of pine and oaks with rhododendron and other alpine flowers apt for bird watching. The friendly gesture of ever smiling natives is simply overwhelming which will make you wish the trekking never ends. Langtang Valley offers the finest views of Majestic Langtang Himal.
