Trekking in the Langtang Valley combines the remote and spectacular valley of Langtang, with the high mountain lakes and the beautiful Kyanjin Gompa. Trail of Langtang valley trek is in the most unspoiled national parks of Nepal, which is perhaps why there is such a high appeal of this trekking route. Situated at North of Kathmandu near the Tibetan border, it is the most easily accessible highland sanctuary from the capital. This remote Langtang valley is enclosed by snow-capped mountains which culminate in the peak of Langtang Lirung (7246m). Langtang valley trekking starts from the lower Langtang Valley which takes you through forests and among the villages and farmlands of many who are of Tibetan origin. The deep gorges of Bhote Koshi and Langtang Khola are thickly forested with rhododendron, oak, maple and alder. As you make your way through the Langtang, there is a high possibility of seeing many interesting wildlife. Common to these forests are the wild boar, Himalayan black bear, ghoral, grey langur monkey and leopard. Larch, a rare deciduous conifer, is also found in the forest of lower Langtang Valley. Further up, Himalayan thahr, musk deer and snow leopard can be found. The upper Langtang Valley is one of the few known breeding grounds of the ibils bills besides the Tibetan snow cock and snow partridge.
You’ll see the stunning views of the Himalayaa and a series of undulating ridges offers a delightful walk before descending to the edge of Kathmandu.
