Langtang valley Trek offers stunning views of Mt. Langtang Lirung (7246m), Ganchhenpo (6388m), and Dorjelakpa (6990m). This high and isolated region is mostly inhabited by the Tamang and Sherpa castes whose religious practice, language, and traditional dress are very similar to Tibetan culture. Langtang Trek is an opportunity to explore the typical Tamang villages, climb small peaks, and view majestic glaciers and ancient Buddhist monasteries.
You can vary the trek to Langtang trek by returning to Kathmandu via Syabru Gaun or Goshainkunda, at 4300m, the destination of thousands pilgrims during the full moon festival in August. Climbing a little higher up from Goshainkunda, reveals a series of mountain peaks ranging from Annapurna to Gaurishankar. On the other side of the Langtang valley is a small Sherpa village called Helambu. You can combine your Langtang trekking with a visit to Helambu either by crossing the Ganjala Pass or the Lauribina Pass. Starting from Sundarijal, an hour’s drive (by car) from Kathmandu, the trek heads through Helambu ending at Melamchi Pul Bazaar. This route passes through typical Sherpa villages, namely: Melamchi Gaun, Tarkeghyang, and Shermathang. Yangri danda, a three-hour climb from Tarkeghyang, offers breath trekking views of the snow-capped mountains.
