Langtang Trek

 

The Langtang valley is called -the valley of glaciers’, where mountain rise, soaring towards the sky. The valley offers pine forest, swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks and meadows strewn with daisies and wild flowers. A variety of sights including monasteries, a cheese factory, yaks, glaciers and mountain lakes all of which await you in this exciting region. THIS TREK HAS BEEN SUSPENDED and hope to be back operating in 2016/2017.

A little bit more about the climb

You will visit Gosainkunda, one of the holiest lakes in Nepal, where thousands pilgrim to each August to bathe in its cold and spiritually refreshing water. One hour drive brings you to Sundarijal, the starting point of this trek, where there are sparkling waterfalls flowing down through an oak forest. This trek gives you a golden chance to learn about life in typical Sherpa villages.

Completing the Langtang Trek is a unique and wonderful experience through the road less traveled in the great Himalayas!
