What makes Langtang Region a great trek?

Nepal Langtang region trekking Hiking walking combines Langtang’s remote and spectacular valley with the high mountain lakes at Gosainkunda and the beautiful Helambu Valley. Visit the lovely Langtang National park and then trek to the end of the valley to view the wonderful ice flutes of Gyangchempo.

Following the Trisuli River north of Kathmandu, we travel through Trisuli Bazar Dhunche Syabrubensi, a Sherpa village located at the very edge of the Langtang National Park. We then swing east into the Langtang valley, crossing the river several times as we travel up along a gorge-like, lower section. We pass through oak and rhododendron forests and even cross glacier moraine on our way to the Tamang village of Langtang.

A little further up the valley is Kyangin Gompa, where we stop overnight and sample the local yak cheese. We pass through Nubamatang, nestled in a hidden valley, on our way up to view the glaciers that mark Tibet’s gateway. 

Backtracking, we travel through Syabru and Sing Gompa to a high plateau, where the sacred lake Gosainkunda is located. Crossing the Lauribinayak Pass (4610m), we continue south, leaving the Langtang region behind us as we travel through the Helambu valley to Gul Bhanjyang. From here, it’s just a few days’ treks back to Kathmandu.
