Langtang trek is an adventurous trek around the Langtang region located in the northwest from Kathmandu. The trek can be short as well as long as it is easily accessible from Kathmandu. This trek is perfect for the trekkers seeking diverse landscapes along with the experience of authentic culture. The hospitality of well-managed hotels and teahouses is amazing. During this trek, we can have a glimpse of snow-capped mountains like Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal, Yala Peak, Langtang Ri, Dorje Lakpa, etc.
Langtang trek was the third most popular trek of the country after Annapurna and Everest Trek. But, due to the destructive earthquake of 2014, part of the beautiful mountain Langtang Lirung broke off & a huge avalanche of ice and rocks caused the destruction of many houses, hotels & death of locals too. This trekking route was closed. But, the locals are back to their land now and the place is rebuilding. Your visit to this place will provide the much-needed economy to the locals. They don’t want sympathy but all they want is travelers to return. Your trekking choice will respectfully support the locals while preserving their dignity, culture, and lifestyle.
Langtang trek is a geographically and culturally diverse trek. Starting the trek from Syabrubeshi at the elevation of 1550m, it goes up to the elevation of 5122m at Ganja La Pass.
