The Langtang valley trek is a pure blend of natural and cultural richness; witness great scenic landscapes, snow-capped mountains, rhododendron forests along with the great culture and traditions of the Tamang and Sherpa people. It is a short and moderate trek taking not more than a week. Although, adding in a few days for side tours into the valley isn’t a bad idea.
Syabrubesi is the starting point for the trek. It takes an eight hour drive from Kathmandu to reach Syabrubesi. From there we ascend to the Kyanjin Gompa.
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 trek offers great views of Pemthang Ri, Dorje Lakpa, Langtang Lirung, and Kangchenpo. If you are looking for something moderate, quick, and fulfilling, this is it!
