This trek enables you to explore through the Langtang National Park - home of the Tibetan looking people the Tamangs. Also this area offers Tamang Heritage Trek. We begin our journey by driving north west of Kathmandu to the mountain village of Dhunche, a major village of the Langtang area. The trek starts from here through the farmland, villages and forests of Rhododendron, conifer, bamboo, oaks and pines.2 week trek in langtang valley is more then enough. This trekking is also called a budget trek in Nepal.
In the spring forest looks enchanting with flowers all around. After passing this fascinating scenery we follow the narrow gorge of Langtang River until we ascend to the large alpine grass land of Kyanjin Gompa where the glacier meets the meadow. You can see Yaks grazing around with the backdrops of snowy peaks of Langtang Ri, Langtang Lirung, Dorjee Lakpa and many other unnamed mountains around you.
The Langtang valley is aptly called " the valley of glaciers". Here the mountain-scape is spectacular. On either side of valley, mountains rise, soaring into the sky. The valley offers pine forest, slow moving rivers and swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks, grassy downs and meadows strewn with daisies and wild primulas. In the upper part of the valley there are snow bridges spanning angry torrents, high passes enveloped in mist, tiny lakes with icebergs floating on them and waters of crystalline brightness.
