Langtang Circuit Trek

14 Days

Langtang Valley circuit is a well-known trekking destination, nestled between the major Himalayan range to the north and a lesser range of snowy peaks to the south. Despite its proximity to Kathmandu, modernisation has had little impact on the valley and its population. This excursion combines breathtaking vistas of the Himalayas with an immersion in the rural culture and traditions of the local people.

The sight of some of the creator’s finest work-Mount. Langtang Lirung (7,200m/23,622ft), Mt. Ganesh Himal (7,600m), Mt. Langtang-II (7,227m), Mt. Gang Chhenpo (6388m), Mt. Naya Kanga Ri (5846m), and Mt. DorjeLakpa (6966m)- is a factor that makes this walk incredibly gratifying. The Rhododendron and Bamboo Forests, as well as their abundant wildlife habitat, breathtaking waterfalls pouring over Mammoth Boulders, and calming hot spring bath are just a few of the trail’s unique characteristics.

Langtang Gosaikunda trek is another renowned trekking destination in Nepal’s Langtang trekking region. Incredible panoramic views and spectacular landscapes, with over 1000 plants, over 150 species of birds, and several other creatures, make trekking more appealing and enjoyable. Trekking at Tserko Ri (5,000m) for spectacular vistas of the Langtang Lirung (7,200m) range is an unforgettable experience.

Overview

The roads go to the Langtang valley and then to the friendly Sherpa community of Kyanjing Gompam via the traditional and ethnic Tamang Village. On our way to Gosainkunda, we will see the sun rise over a plethora of the gleaming Gosainkunda Lake, which is a Hindu and Buddhist sacred lake. The Laurebinayak pass (4,609m) will also reveal some lovely rice terraces and a number of magnificent monasteries, as well as the wonderful towns of Tarke Gyang and Sermathang..

The Langtang Valley is protected by the Langtang National Park, Nepal’s second largest national park. One of the itineraries included in the package is a walk through the park. It is difficult, but not impossible, to see wildlife in a wooded setting. Monkeys, Musk Deer, Pikka, and the colorful Danphe are some of the wildlife you may encounter (Pheasant – national bird of Nepal). Langtang Valley trekking provides an experience that no other site can provide. It is a tiny valley with diverse flora and animals.

The Langtang circuit trekking trail continues to Kyangjin Gompa after passing through Langtang village (3,740 m). The Yala Cheese Factory is located here. A continuation from Kyangjin Gompa to the Langsisa grasslands (4.084 m) affords good views of multiple glaciers. Langsisa has a few huts within walking distance of Kyangjin Gompa that can be reached in a day.
