Langtang-a narrow Valley rich in culture and cherished by nature lies towards the north of Kathmandu. The Langtang Valley trail follows through the ethnic Tamang settlements, lush green and rhododendron forest and the wide spread Kyanjin Valley known as Kyanjin Gompa. This amazing land borders to Tibet but still far away from Tibetan Plateau. A trek to Langtang Valley combines the diversity of spectacular views of the Himalayas and exploration of traditional villages. Small peak climbing opportunities and visit to the glaciers at comfortably low elevations are extra attractions.
There are numerous highlights of Langtang Valley trekking. The main are rhododendron and bamboo forests with an abundance of wildlife and majestic waterfalls. Above all, magnificent views of the white giant Langtang Lirung (7,246m/23,774ft) and ascent to the Tserko Ri (5,033m/16,513ft) are more exciting. The summit of Tserko Ri offers the 360 degree views of Himalayan panorama. Kyanjing Gompa provides an opportunity to experience the spiritual lifestyle of dedicated Buddhist monks performing their rituals in a beautiful Monastery. Visit to the traditional cheese factory there and observation of the cheese manufacturing process by hand will also be interesting.
The entire Langtang region is protected within the boundaries of Langtang National Park and home to the shy Red Panda. If you are lucky, you might be able to spot them out. Due to the gradual ascents, Langtang Valley trek is not difficult but can demand some challenges also.
