Langtang Valley Trek - 10 Days
The Langtang vallye trek is one of the finest in Nepal despite being the 3rd most popular trek in the country. This isolated area just South of the Tibetan border offers unspoilt trekking, spectacular landscapes and a host of impressive peaks. In the remote Langtang valley we trek through Tamang villages where the culture is purely Tibetan. We trek through forests of Rhododendrons and Oak alive with birds, to emerge in alpine landscape of soaring snowcapped peaks and sweeping glaciers.
The Beautiful Langtang Valley
From Kathmandu we take a bus to the Tibetan village of Syabrubesi (1420m) and start our trek with a great day's walk over a ridge to the valley of the Langtang Khola. We then hike up a lush wooded gorge where we expect to see monkeys and birds. Emerging from the forest we start to get glimpses of the peaks ahead and walk on past the prayer wheel to the village of Langtang (3500m), the largest village in the valley. Yak grazing pastures and fertile fields of barley and buckwheat surrounds Langtang. As we walk up the valley the mountain views become increasingly spectacular, especially of Langtang Lirung (7245m) and the amazing fluted peak of Gangchempo (6387m). We base ourselves at Kyangjin Gompa for 3 nights to explore the surrounds and the upper reaches of the valley.
Holy Gosainkunda Lakes
We return by a different route. We trek to Lauribina. We get exceptional views of the summit Langtang. An optional treks to the holy lakes of Gosainkunda where thousand of pilgrims bathe during a festival during the full moon of August. Descending below the lakes we are greeted by the magnificent vista of high and famous mountains from Manaslu, Peak 29 and Himalchuli in the west, to Ganesh Himal and the Langtang mountain range in the east.
