The Langtang region is the nearest mountain range from Kathmandu city and is situated in the northern part of the Kathmandu Valley. Langtang trek is a trek with real heart. The Langtang Valley is one of the most beautiful places in Nepal and was once the darling of trekkers seeking stunning landscapes and authentic culture along with heartwarming hospitality in the delightful homestay guest houses all within easy reach of Kathmandu.
However, the Langtang Valley is almost devoid of visitors these days as the people of Langtang are continuing to rebuild their lives after the 2015 earthquake. Survivors of the landslides caused by the earthquake were forced to leave the valley, but now they have come back to reclaim their homeland, rebuild their homes and re-establish their farms.
Trekking in this beautiful valley will support the people of Langtang by providing much-needed income to rebuild in a sustainable and secure way. This is not charity; this is the business end of sustainable travel, where your travel choices can respectfully support local people while preserving their dignity, their culture and their way of life. Be wowed by nature, be humbled by the human spirit and be a part of local solutions when you choose to trek in Langtang.
The journey starts with a 7-8 hours drive from Kathmandu valley to Syahrubesi. You will trek through the rugged terrains and cross the dense bamboo, oaks, pine and maple forests towards the beautiful and scenic Langtang valley. Langtang Valley is the largest settlement of the Tamang community where you can explore and experience the unique culture, traditions, and lifestyles of the local villagers. From Langtang valley, the trekking trail heads towards the beautiful Kyanjin Valley. The Langtang valley is also home to an endangered animal species, the Red Panda. After enjoying the beauty of the famous Langtang region, you trek the same route to Syahrubesi and drive back to Kathmandu.
