The major highlight of the Langtang Valley Trek is the breathtaking views of Langtang and Ganesh Himal Ranges and the amazing glimpses of Langtang glaciers. Langtang ranges also host several exciting trekking peaks for climbing. The entire valley is an integral part of Langtang National Park, one of the oldest national parks in Nepal. Rare and endangered Red Panda found in region is a flag species of the park. Other interesting highlight of the trek includes a visit to the local cheese factory in Kyangjin and Sing gompas, a chance to try out local cheese.

Lantang Valley lies in northern part of Nepal close to Tibet. Adventurer and writer Bill Tilman once described Langtang Valley as “the most beautiful valley in the world”- a citation that is so unbelievably true.

Langtang Valley is inhabited by Tamang communities who still follow age-old cultural customs and Buddhist practices. Ancient Buddhist monasteries and Gompas and the valley’s landscape and the spiritual air pervades their everyday chores. Langtang Valley trail is an easy trek suitable for all age groups, ranging from young to old. The trek can be done any time of the year.
