Langtang Valley Trek

Langtang valley trek is all about experiencing the glorious presence of Majestic snow-capped mountains just a few Kilometers away from the capital, Kathmandu. This 16-day long trek is located at 4,380 m (14,370 ft) altitude, which makes it moderately difficult with not so severe risk of altitude sickness. Talking about the trail of the trek, it has terrace lands, exotic flora and fauna, beautiful waterfalls, wildlife, snow-capped mountains, a diversity of ethnic groups and their cultures, and many other picturesque views.

Langtang valley trekflaunts lakes, cold mountain streams, grassy meadows with various animals grazing on them, bamboo and rhododendron forests, mountain vistas, and the Langtang river. Langtang, also known as the valley of glaciers, and Gosaikunda, located in the Rasuwa district, are famous all around Nepal for their natural beauty.

The Langtang valley trek begins at Kathmandu, followed by Syabrubeshi, situated inside the Langtang national park leading to Langtang valley. From here, the trek marches towards Gosain Kunda lake through the stunning view of Kyanjin Gompa (an ancient monastery). The trek ends at Sundarijal (gateway to Chisapani), which is famous for Canyoning and Canyoneering.

The Langtang valley trek is the ideal one for those who want to experience being close to mountains in a short time and a higher risk of altitude sickness and respiratory health issues. The trek also doesn’t have difficult climbing making it beginner friendly.

Leading you to the splendid mountain vistas, the Langtang valley trek is suitable for people intending to visit mountains within a short time frame. You don’t need to worry about altitude sickness as the elevation is not as high ( it is still good to have your health checked before trekking). One should be physically fit to complete this trek.
