Langtang Valley is situated close to the Tibetan border and is a remote valley enclosed by snow-capped mountains that culminate in the peak of Langtang Lirung (7246m).
The religion of the Tamang people closely resembles those of the people of Tibet who inhabit the area. We make our trek through larch and rhododendron forests that are abundant with wildflowers and bird life. This all help to ensure your trek is particularly attractive, especially in the springtime.
We get enough time to explore the head of the valley, getting close to the glacier outline or climbing a nearby peak, such as Tserko Ri (5033m), for breathtaking mountain views. After a visit to Langtang valley, we ascend to Gosainkunda and pass the holy lakes of Gosaikund to enter Helambu valley via the Lauribinayak Pass (4610m).
As we are on the Laurebina Pass, we are rewarded with stunning views of the Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and even as far as the Annapurna massif. A series of undulating ridges offers delightful walking before descending to the edge of Kathmandu.
