Also sometimes referred to as the valley of glaciers, Langtang Valley Trek lies in Langtang Himal region to the north of Kathmandu valley and south of the Tibetan border. The entire Langtang valley is surrounded by high peaks of great appeal and popular among those are Langtang Himal, Naya Khanga, Lirung, Gangchenpo, Langtang Ri.

Also to mention, a river is formed by the ice melted from the Langtang Himal and is named Langtang river.

Langtang valley also gained some popularity after British mountaineer Bill Tilman described it as one of the most spectacular valleys in the world. Shisapangma or Gosaithan at an altitude of 8027 m is the highest peak in this area laying across the border of Nepal & Tibet.

The course in between Langtang valley and the famous site - Gosaikunda is full of bio-diversity. Nevertheless, this has been one of the factors that allure travelers to reach this mother nature's most gifted destination.

After the rainy season, we suggest you visit the valley as you will encounter the entire valley covered with beautiful flowers and green vegetation. These wide varieties of blooming flowers make the views of the entire valley really eye-catching.

Thus, Langtang Valley Trek is also known as the treasure house of Alpine plants. Apart from that, the trekking trails are covered mostly with the rhododendron and pine forest. If you visit during the blooming season of rhododendron i.e spring - you are likely to view many varieties of colorful rhododendrons flowers.

This isolated region is inhabited by Tamang locals whose religious practices, language and dress are much similar to that of the Tibetan people. The infamous earthquake of 2015 destroyed some of the traditional houses but, now is restored and life is normal again.

Featured Highlights

  • Deep gorges & rivers as well as terraced meadows & fascinating forest.
  • Red pandas, monkey, species of birds.
  • Superb views of a snowy peak like Dorje Larpa, Langtang RI & Langtang Lirung
  • Monastery & Cheese factory.

I had a wonderful experience with Adventure Mission Nepal on my Langtang valley trek last week. The place itself is amazing. From the time I reached Kathmandu airport and until I arrived back at the airport, everything was taken care by Raj and Shanta of Adventure Mission Nepal for me. When I contacted adventure mission nepal for this trek, the response I got from Raj are complete and specific to my queries whereas most other travel agency just sent me their standard trek itinerary irrespective of the query. I really felt that Raj listened to my needs and helped me to plan the trip. Shanta from adventure mission nepal was my guide for this trek. An excellent guide to have. He made my experience wonderful by explaining what to expect on each day, ensuring I am comfortable with the stay and food at every stop, allowing me trek on my own phase and always there to guide or help me when I struggle or stray. Raj who is the owner of the Adventure Mission Nepal, starting from our welcome lunch meeting until I left for airport, was always checking throughout the trek to ensure I am comfortable and the things are going according to the plan we discussed at the start. Thank you Raj and Shanta! Hope to do more treks with you guys!

Thanks to the professional service by Raj and his staff me and my mom had a great experience trekking Langtang Valley and doing a day tour of Bhaktapur, Pashupatinath and Boudhanath. Our guide Pradeep was very knowledgeable (history, people, sights, general background which I really appreciated), but also caring and easygoing. Supported by Shankar (porter) hey were a strong team. I had the full service arranged by AMN (guide, porter, transport, permits) and can recommend this company without any hesitation. Even my biggest fear (drive to Syapru Bensi) went smooth - our car was good, relatively new, comfortable and the driver very careful and safe. I did the drive also with a local bus and another driver so can compare. Great job, will come again next time! :)
