Langtang Valley trekking is the shortest and nearest Himalayan region from Kathmandu situated on the northside in Nepal. it gives you a beautiful experience of the lifetime. Trekking in Langtang can be done in 7 Days too but Langtang trek 12 days is the best options to include the best Himalayan ranges of Langtang region. Nepal Trek Adventure offers the best route, cost, and itinerary as per as the choice of clients. We also have the package for Langtang valley 7 days trek. It is also called The Valley of Glaciers Trek. The Valley offers wonderful views of mountains towering on either side, pine forests, swiftly flowing rivers and mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks.

Langtang National Park protects the Valley. It also protects a number of peaks including Langtang Lirung (7246 m) and forests of the region. The park is habitat for many animal species like the Himalayan black bear, Himalayan Thar, Rhesus monkeys and, of course, Red Panda. Some trekkers and locals had also reported that they had sighted Yeti in the region. The majority of the people living in the Valley are Tamang who are Tibetan descent. Langtang was an important trading route to Tibet in the past due to which the region shared cross-culture resembling Tibetan heritage even today. The unique Tamang culture makes the Langtang Valley Trek different from other trekking experiences. Rituals of Tamang, their culture, architect, costumes and local dances pour extra essence on the trail.

The trail to Langtang Valley begins from Dhunche, a major village of Langtang region. The course follows the farmland and goes through a series of forests of rhododendron, bamboo, oaks, and pines. Passing narrow gorge of Langtang River paves the way to large alpine grassland of Kyanjin Gompa where the glacier meets the meadow. Yaks grazing in the footsteps of Langtang Ri, Langtang Lirung, Dorjee Lakpa and many more mountains is fascinating for any trek lovers.

Our guides were friendly and knowledgeable, the company staff was attentive from the beginning planning stages to the end (when they dropped us off at the airport) and Nepal is a great country! Thanks NTA for making us feel at home!

    "The best way to forget what your life is made of every single day", a good summary to express what I felt when i got back to Kathmandu after 10 days of walking in the middle of the Himalayas.  You must know that The Langtang National Park was the first one to be established in the 70's. We have chosen to do this one because less touristic. We were looking for an experience that will allow us to cut from the "real" world. But the best thing about this park is high diversity of its vegetation. It will take you through heavy forest, through dry spaces and wonderful landscapes.  Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition had organised our trip the way we wanted to. Our 10 days walk with Dhana our guide was amazing. Dhana has been a young, happy and energic guide and became a close friend.  My girlfriend and I had experienced something incredible that I would recommand to anyone ready to cut from what we all know already and discover the top of our world.

    From the moment we arrived for Langtang Valley Trek in the chaos of Kathmandu to the moment we got back on a plane to leave everything was taken care of. Nothing was too much for binod and his amazing team of Sherpas and porters. The only bad part of the trip was leaving! Will do, and have done, recommend this really authentic Nepalese trek. Thank you binod for making our journey so special

    I walked the Langtang Tamang heritage treks with Dara. What a fantastic experience – I wasn’t sure what to expect the walking was hard, to begin with, but with Dara setting the perfect peace! Soon started to really to enjoy the outstanding views of the Langtang Range. The Tamang heritage trail was the best walking. I have even experienced with the excellent and interesting homestay, hot springs view owed to Tibet. I will never forget to first owe in the opening sight of mountains eagles and sheer. The guide Dhana and the agency were excellent all highly recommended
