Langtang, Lirung, and Ganesh Himal lie to the north of the Kathmandu Valley. This magnificent trek combines the beauty of high mountains, the sacred Lake Gosainkunda, and the pleasure of meeting the Tamang and Sherpa people, renowned for their kindness and hospitality. Fourteen Summits has prepared the itinerary through pine, oak, and rhododendron forests, which are less frequented than others and will appeal to mountain lovers who want to get off the beaten track.

The Langtang trek is one of the easier trekking routes in Nepal, offering stunning views of the Langtang and Ganesh Himal mountain ranges. This trek is well-suited for those seeking a memorable holiday in Nepal without spending a significant amount of money. It provides insight into the challenges of remote life in Nepal and offers a chance to explore local traditions and culture as well.

Highlights of Langtang Valley Trek:

  1. The region resembles a cross-cultural blend as it borders Tibet.
  2. Trekking in Langtang Valley is a beautiful experience, often referred to as ‘The Valley of Glaciers Trek.’
  3. Langtang National Park protects the valley, which is home to many animal species such as the Himalayan black bear, Himalayan thar, Rhesus monkeys, and, of course, the Red Panda.
