Less well known (and slightly less high) than the Annapurna or the Evere region, you will find the Langtang region. You start your Langtang trek to the Langtang Valley at about 7 hours drive from Kathmandu. The beautiful landscapes and authentic culture, together with heartwarming hospitality in cozy teahouses make this trekking a real must!
This Langtang area was one of the first in Nepal to be protected as a nature park. This also ensured that it is quite unspoiled, even though it is not so far from Kathmandu.
Without days of hiking, you will find yourself on this trekking in the Langtang valley between the high peaks of the Himalayas. The Langtang trek starts at the small town of Syabrubesi. You will hike through various forests to the high green meadows with yaks around Kyanjin Gompa (a famous Buddhist monastery). From this location you will make a walk to the top of the Kyanjin Ri. Here you will enjoy a spectacular 360 degree panoramic view of the Himalayas! Even though there are only peaks up to 7000 meters, the feeling is equally overwhelming and the view is breathtakingly beautiful! Afterwards you follow the route back down and drive back to Kathmandu.
The Langtang valley was badly hit by the earthquake of 2015. Some of the villages were completely wiped out. As a result, there are still fewer visitors than before. However, the locals did everything they could to be able to welcome guests back as soon as possible: the paths have been repaired and the teahouses are operational. Tourism is their main source of income here as well.
Trekking in this beautiful Langtang valley supports the people of Langtang to provide them with a new income!
