The Langtang valley has been most aptly described by Bill Tilman as “the most beautiful valley in the world”. This trek leads you to the breath taking natural wonders of the Langtang region.
Langtang valley is located to the north of Kathmandu. Encircled by the high peaks the Langtang valley trek gives you an opportunity for a panoramic view of the Himalayan peaks. As the valley is known as the “treasure house of alpine” you will enjoy the endless stretch of alpine forests and varieties of flowers during your trail.
With the proximity of the Langtang valley to the southern border of Tibet this region is inhabited by the Tamang community whose religious practices, language and customs are similar to the Tibetans.

which takes about three hours. The trail climbs gradually through small villages and yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyangjin. It is a dramatic setting, with snow covered peaks surrounding you in all directions. At this point, you can enjoy the panoramic views of Dorje Larpa (6990m.), Langtang Ri (6370m.), Langtang Lirung (7245m.) and several other peaks. Stay overnight at lodge.
