Langtang Region

Langtang Region

The Langtang region is comparatively less popular than the Everest and Annapurna regions, however the trekking trails in this region are well developed and every year many people visit the area, The main benefit of travelling to the region is that it lies very close to the capital Kathmandu, being only an hour’s drive from Kathmandu.  This area is perfect for those who want to minimise transit time to the trails but still experience the high Himalaya. The region comes under the protection of Langtang National Park which hosts many rare species of flora and fauna such as red billed and yellow billed magpies, cuckoos etc. Langtang National Park also covers the area consisting of a number of high peaks. The Langtang and Ganesh Himal mountain ranges include Langtang Lirung (7246m), Gang Chhenpo (6388m), Naya Kangri (5846m), Yala peak (5700m) and Dorji Lhakpa (6966m).

The main trekking area of the Langtang region is the Langtang Valley which is sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north bothering Tibet and a slightly lower range of the snowy peaks to the south. The other two main areas are the sacred alpine lakes of Gosainkunda and the rolling Sherpa farmlands of Helambu. Treks in the region can extend from 1 week to 17 days and whilst we only offer one trek as a fixed departure trip, other treks can be organised upon request, such as the Gosainkunda Trek, the Tamang Heritage Trail, and various short treks in the Helambu area. The treks in the Langtang region provide an opportunities to explore the villages, small peaks, glacial lakes and also learn the culture and tradition of the people living in the area.
