Langtang Region Trekking

Trekking in Langtang and Helambu area is one of the most accessible regions for trekking in Nepal, which is located 19 miles north of Kathmandu, close to the boarder of Tibet. While the area cannot boast any of the Himalayan giants, the valley is dominated by Langtang Lirung(7246m), The highest peak in the area but the scenery here is every bit as spectacular as most of the better-known destinations. Langtang valley trekking starts from the lower Langtang Valley which takes you through forests and among the villages and farmlands of many who are of Tibetan origin. The deep gorges of Bhote Koshi and Langtang Khola are thickly forested with rhododendron, oak, maple and alder. The stretch of forest around Ghoda Tabela in the lower Langtang Valley and below Gosainkunda is inhabited by the red panda, a rare and threatened symbol of a healthy Himalayan ecosystem. As you make your way through the Langtang, there is a high possibility of seeing many interesting wildlife. Common to these forests are the wild boar, Himalayan black bear, ghoral, grey langur monkey and leopard. Larch, a rare deciduous conifer, is also found in the forest of lower Langtang Valley. Further up, Himalayan thahr, musk deer and snow leopard can be found. The upper Langtang Valley is one of the few known breeding grounds of the ibils bills besides the Tibetan snow cock and snow partridge.

It is also far less visited by tourists making a trek here somewhat more of an adventure. There are three major trekking areas Langtang, Gosainkund and Helambu, which can be combined in many different ways to make treks from 7 days to 16 days long.
