About Langtang Valley Trek

Langtang Valley trek is an amazing trekking route which lies within the first national park of the Himalayan region, Langtang National Park. Few hours of scenic drive from Kathmandu will take you to the beautiful Langtang region. This popular route is short and moderate. So, the Langtang Valley trek is a great option for those trekkers who want to have all the excitement of the Himalayas in a short period of time.

Despite being near to Kathmandu, the Langtang Region is diverse and wild as any of the other trekking destinations of Nepal. This wonderful trek takes you near to the snowcapped mountains and glaciers in just a few days of trek accompanied by beautiful villages of Tibetan (Bhote) and Tamang with their unique culture, magnificent views of mountains, prayer flags, mani walls, Buddhists shrines, chortens, rhododendron, and bamboo forests. The Langtang region is famous for being home to the wide range of Himalayan wildlife with some of the rare and protected animals like Red Panda and Snow Leopard. And you may have the chance to spot Red Panda if you’re lucky enough.

Highly recommended

My husband and I met and trekked with Sujan 9 years ago and we have stayed in contact with him all these years. He was such a great, genuine and hospitable guide on our first trek that we booked another with him a few days later! Sujan has a vast array of knowledge and is very easy going with a lovely personality. We will return one day to trek with Sujan when our 3 young boys are old enough to explore the Himalayas. We highly recommend Sujan as a guide in the Himalayas!
