The Langtang valley trek is an opportunity to witness a pure blend of natural beauties like scenic landscapes, snow-capped mountains, rhododendron forests and the culture and traditions of the Tamang and Sherpa people. This is a short but a lovely trek. The trek is usually of about a week but it is advised to add in a few days for side tours into the valley. The region has geographic structure and surroundings like that of Tibetan highlands. One of the highlights of this region of Nepal is the Langtang National Park. The park is home to approximately 4,500 residents with most of them being of the Tamang ethnicity. The park is rich in flora and fauna. The park is filled with oak, maple, pine, and several types of rhododendron. Its home to some of the rarest creatures on the planet like the Himalayan black bear, the Himalayan tahr, rhesus monkeys and red pandas. There have also been stories of Yeti sightings in the area.
The park also includes religious and spiritual sights like the Gosainkunda lakes, sacred to Hindus and Kyanjin Gompa, sacred to Buddhists.
The park offers remarkable views of snow-capped mountains like Dorje Lakpa, Langtang Lirung, Pemthang Ri and Kangchenpo from the viewpoint Kyanjin Gompa. The trek begins after a 7 hours’ drive to Syabrubesi. From there trekkers shall ascend towards the Kyanjin Gompa.
This is a short and a moderate trek. The Langtang Valley is the perfect choice for those looking for a quick but a pleasing trek.
