Langtang Valley Trek, also known as Glacier Valley trekking is an exclusive opportunity to experience the Himalayan region located very near to the capital city, Kathmandu. Out of three different trekking trails in the Langtang region, the Langtang Valley trekking trail is considered the most rewarding trail. Passing through the rhododendron forest of Langtang National Park, the trail along the Langtang River presents the opportunity to spot extraordinary vegetations, birds, and animals like Danphe (Nepal’s national bird), musk deer, Pika, and monkey.

Moreover, this trek to Langtang valley is also a great opportunity to get acquainted with Tamang and Sherpa settlements whose lifestyle, culture, and language are highly influenced by Tibetan people.

Yala Cheese Factory, Keynjing Gompa –an old Buddhist monastery, and the panoramic view of Mt. Langtang RI, Langsisa, Langtang Himal, Ganjala Peak, and Langtang Lirung glacier from Tsergo RI, are some of the major attractions of this trek.

You will also get to enjoy a herd of Yaks during the hike. Moreover, you will get a chance to explore the first Himalayan National Park of Nepal. 4,984m (Tsergo RI is the maximum altitude covered during the trek.

Health, fitness and experience requirements:

Though Langtang Valley trek in the Langtang region is considered easy, the trail   definitely demands excellent stamina, tough determination, and the best health condition.

Trek to the Langtang Valley is considered moderate and easily attainable; however, it is highly suggested to seek advice, medications and permission from your doctor before scheduling your trek.  It is also recommended to take expert guidance from your local General Practitioner regarding necessary guide walks prior to this trek. In the absence of GP, seeking advice from travel clinic is also considered as a very good idea.

Moreover, the good news is that, no technical skill is required to plan your trek or any other exploratory trips in Nepal.
