The Langtang region is closer to Kathmandu and a little less populated than other trekking destinations in Nepal. We take you to the Langtang Valley that lies just south of the Tibetan Border. Your trek starts from the village of Dunche, walking on the open and fertile valley. Nepal's national flower, the Rhododendron looks amazing with the backdrop of snow-capped mountains and photo opportunities on this trek are endless. You will see and hear a multitude of birds and might be able to spot other wildlife such as Wild Boar and Languor monkey. As you move up the valley you will notice the Tibetan influence in the villages and lifestyle of the people. The ascent up to Tserko Ri (4,984m) is a challenging climb, however it offers some of the most spectacular Himalayan views and the mountain passes are overpowering, which is a definite highlight of the trip! Another option is to undertake a shorter walk up to Kyanjin Ri or walk further up the valley.
Discover the heavenly beauty of the land with its rushing rivers and lush forests. Langtang National Park shows impressive landscapes, with more than 1000 plants, birds exceeding 150species of numerous other mammals. Designated a national park in 1976, the Langtang valley is the second largest national park of Nepal. It is one of the least crowded trekking destinations. A trek to this isolated region offers an opportunity to explore ancient villages, a wide range of animals (wild dog, red pandas, pika, muntjac, musk deer, Himalayan black bear, Himalayan tahr, ghoral, serow, rhesus monkey and common langur). Culturally it’s rich in many artful monasteries. One can climb famous peaks and visit glittering ice lakes or glorious glaciers at comfortable relatively low elevations.
