Langtang Valley Trek
Langtang is the closest trekking region from Kathmandu. This trek provides an opportunity to see the beautiful Himalayas. However, the main areas of interest are the rhododendron and bamboo forests with an abundance of wildlife, majestic waterfalls, and magnificent views of the nearly whole Nepalese Himalayan mountain range from Annapurna in the West, to Makalu in the East. The maximum altitude reached by the trek is about 3900 meters.But there will be the possibility to climb up to the Kynajin-Ri at an altitude of about 4600 meters for an excellent view of all the Langtang peaks. This is considered a classical and relatively short trekking. The accommodation will be in small lodges on the entire route.
This trek in Langtang valley is ideal for people looking to trek in a peaceful environment. The Langtang region is dominated by the Tibetan-influenced Tamang people and also a few Sherpas. You will therefore get the chance to feel and experience Tibetan-alike cultures and rituals.
