The Langtang classic trek offers to take you through the diversified beauty of Nepal along with viewing the highest peaks of the world at close quarters.

Langtang Himal is a region geographically based in the north part outside of the Kathmandu valley and in close proximity just south of the Tibetan border. This gracious, beautiful and lush green valley is surrounded by high peaks of great appeal. It has become famous ever since the British mountaineer Bill Tilman described it as the most beautiful valley in the world. The highest peak in this area is Shisapangma or Gosaithan 8027m in Tibet. The course from the Langtang valley to Gosaikund is embraced with diverse natural beauty. Langtang valley is also known as the ''treasure house'' of Alpine plants. The whole valley is carpeted with an array of beautiful flowers during the summer, a specter that should never be missed. This high and isolated region is inhabited by Tamangs whose religious customs, language and dress are similar to that of the Tibetans.

Langtang valley classic hike

(5/5)

I've just returned from the Langtang Classic hike and what an amazing experience!

From the beginning, Nava was quick to reply to emails, friendly and flexible with my plans. Couldn't have asked for an easier booking process.

Hari, my guide is the most wonderful and lovely man. Very experienced guide who was knowledgable and friendly. If you have the opportunity to request him, you won't regret it.

The Langtang region was just spectacular. Having only just reopened recently after the devastating aftermath of last year's earthquake, it was a real pleasure and humbling experience to visit the area with someone as experienced as Hari.

Thank you to the whole team for such a great trip!
