About Trip:

The Langtang Valley Trek is a pleasant trip in Nepal as it commences with tours of Kathmandu’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a drive to Syabrubesi the next day. We begin trekking from the lower region of the Langtang Valley through small villages, farmlands and verdant forests to Kyangjin Gompa. We also climb Tserko Ri for excellent sunrise views over the Langtang ranges.The region borders Tibet and was once an important trading route. We can still see the influence in the rich local culture. Furthermore, the Langtang Valley Trek’s itinerary also takes us to the ‘Langtang Village’ which was heavily affected by the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal in April 2015. The destruction was so huge that the permission to trek in the region was closed for sometime after the earthquake.After several detailed surveys of the land structure of the region, it was declared a safe region to travel to and got some international attention as one of the must travel destinations of the world.
