The Langtang region lies to the north of Kathmandu and is easily accessed by road transport. Langtang itself is a narrow valley, close to the Tibetan border, that lies between the main Himalayan range to the north and smaller peaks to the south. Because of the easy access and comfortable lower elevations it is a popular area for short treks although longer treks can be done by combining the areas of Gosainkund or Helambu.
The main attractions of Langtang are the Tamang villages, the beautiful scenery and the chance to experience the unique culture. The Langtang trek is a short trek that takes us up through the Langtang valley on the way to Kyanjin Gompa where we take a day to experience the monastery and surrounding scenery. This trek is perfect for those you want to experience the wonders of the Himalaya but in a shorter timeframe, at lower levels and with a short transit to and from Kathmandu.

On the trek
Our trips are all operated on the GAP system - Guides, Accommodation, Porterage. Over our many years of experience we have realised that clients prefer to choose and pay for their own food and drink on the trail. Not only does this result in a more cost effective regime but it takes into account the many factors that can influence our clients choice. Some clients prefer a hearty breakfast with relatively light lunches and dinners, whilst others prefer the opposite and so we allow our clients to make their choices and the sirdar helps to settle bills as we progress along the trail. We recommend that you allow US$25 per day for food and drink.
Permits and Entrance Fees
All trekking permits and entrance fees are included.
