LANGTANG TREK

Langang is known for its superb mountain views and the numerous glacial lakes with their crystal clear water, many of which are considered sacred by Hindus.

This trek starts from Dhunche, which is a 6 hr. drive by bus from Kathmandu. The trek can take up to 14 days and there are excellent facilities for food and accommodation along the route. The route passes through beautiful alpine valley and the Langtang region lies just south of the Tibetan border. The trek takes you through Tamang villages, forests rich in wildlife and over glaciers. This is prime habitat of the red panda and Himalayan black bear.There is also an opportunity to see typical Tibetan architecture that have flat roofed houses bound by stone walls enclosing crop fields. You can make a trip to the cheese factory built by the Swiss Association for Technical Assistance (SATA) in 1955.

The first day’s trek goes from Dhunche to Syabru crossing the Trisuli river and enters the Langtang valley after crossing a ridge at 2300m.The route passes a bamboo forest reaching Syabru at 2100m. The next day the trek passes through a forest that abounds in wildlife and crosses the Langtang Khola (river) alongside which there are a series of waterfalls and finally climbs to Lama Hotel.

On the third day you encounter a steep climb above the Langtang Khola after which you descend to the settlement of Langtang at 3500m. On the 4th day you climb past Tibetan villages, lovely pastures and finally cross a moraine to reach Kyanjin Gompa at 3800m. The next few days are spent in the Langtang Valley. There are many choices here. You can return via the same route or go for the alternative routes through either Gosaikunda Lake or Ganja La (5,106m pass). The Gosaikunda is revered by Hindus as a sacred lake and is an important pilgrimage site. It is crowded during the full moon in August. There are many lakes in this area. Through the Ganja La you enter the Helambu area and follow the Helambu trek back to Kathmandu. Many trekkers choose to return via the hilltop settlement of Chisopani and wind off the trek at Nagarkot.
