 Langtang valley trek ranks third in popularity of Nepal’s trekking destinations and is one of the most accessible to Kathmandu valley. Langtang valley Trekking is popular for its exhilarating scenery and up –close view of soaring peaks and their associated glaciers.People with less time but looking for major trek often choose Langtang.Langtang valley Trekking begins in the lowlands and follows the rushing waters of the Langtang River up through a landscape lush with flora and fauna. Langtang valley Trekking combines the remote and spectacular valley of Langtang, with the high mountain lakes at Gosaikunda and the beautiful Helambu Valley. Visit the beautiful Langtang National park and then trek to the end of the valley to view the wonderful ice flutes of Gyangchempo.

Following the Trishuli River north out of Kathmandu, we travel through Trishuli Bazaar and Dhunche to Syabrubesi, a Sherpa village located at the very edge of the Langtang National Park. We then swing east into the Langtang valley, crossing the river several times as we travel up along a gorge-like, lower section of the valley. We pass through oak and rhododendron forests and even cross glacial moraine on our way to the Tamang village of Langtang.

A little further up the valley is Kyangjin Gompa, where we stop overnight and sample the local yak cheese. We pass through Nubamatang, nestled in a hidden valley, on our way up to view the glaciers, which mark the gateway into Tibet. Backtracking, we travel through Syabru and Sing Gompa to a high plateau, where the sacred lake Gosaikunda is located. Crossing the Laurebinak Pass (4610m), we continue south, leaving the Langtang region behind us as we travel through the Helambu valley to Gul Bhanjyang. From here it's just a few days trek back to Kathmandu.Access to Helambu is particularly easy and quick. Sundarijal, which is one of the most convenient starting points, is an hour’s drive from Kathmandu. Other possible road heads are at Budhanilkantha, Kakani and four hour drive away at melamchi Pul.
