Langtang Valley Trek
850

Overview

The Langtang Valley is a favorite trek for our guests,it is a rich alpine valley full of birds animals and rare plants. The valley forms part of the Central Nepal Himalaya, north of Kathmandu. The trek is considered by many people who have been there to be one of the most rewarding short treks in Nepal.It provides some wonderful mountains including the mighty Langtang Lyrung.

The area is less touristic due mainly to its remoteness. It offers a wilderness experience, fascinating people with a rich Tamang culture. There is time to relax into local settlements with a lot of wildlife and bird life along the way. Tamangis (the main ethnic group) are Tibetan in every aspect all but for twenty miles where the Tibetan border is found.Trekking into the high valley takes you almost to the base of the Nepal Himalaya. The trek provides “a high mountain feel” without it being too difficult. There is also an extensive glacier system to explore in the valley's upper reaches.
There is a lot of scope to vary treks in this region: one popular choice is to extend the nine day Langtang Valley hike for a further five days to the Sacred Lakes of Gosainkund (4300m) and the Helambu region. The Sacred Lakes are said to have been created by Lord Shiva when he jabbed his trisul (trident) into the ground to form the headwaters of the Trisuli River. Treks in Langtang and Helambu are combined by the crossing of the Laurebina Pass near Gosainkund. There are some beautiful forests in Helambu as well.

We, at Nepal Social Treks and Expedition, are deeply concerned about your safety and comfort and thus provide excellent transportation and accommodation throughout the trek. Additionally, we offer the experienced local guide to add that extra bit of authenticity to your journey.

  1. Langtang Valley Trek
    I chose the Langtang Trek because I wanted to see the less busy part of Nepal and it was just absolutely stunning!! :) I didn't want to leave at all! Our guide and porters were absolutely professional and the people working at the agency are so lovely and tried to fulfill all our wishes! Thanks to the team!
  2. Langtang Valley Trek
    En Octubre de 2018 hice un trekking por el Valle de Langtang a Kyajin Gomba. El trekking fue increíble, con bonitos y muy variados paisajes y espectaculares vistas. Nuestro guía Karum, a pesar de su juventud, muy profesional, estuvo muy pendiente de nosotros, con mucha paciencia, en todo momento. Muy eficiente. Al igual que los porteadores nos han cuidado en todo el trekking. La experiencia ha sido muy buena.
  3. Langtang Valley Trek
    Booked a two-week trek in Langtang through Nepal Social Treks. The communication between the office and myself was a very positive and smooth experience with swift responses and fantastic advice. Nepal Social offered me and my traveling partner a variety of services and options that were very useful, on-point and at a competitive price. In addition to help us plan our trip, Nepal Social offered us a guide, Mohan, who was phenomenal. In addition to the professional manner in which the employees at Nepal Social conduct business, they stay true to their name and are indeed very social. I was taken out for lunch upon my arrival to Kathmandu and was invited out for dinner and drinks at the end of my trek. For the reasons stated above and many more, I strongly recommend using Nepal Social Trek's services on your next trip to Nepal.
  4. Langtang Valley Trek
    Traveled to Nepal for three weeks in January 2017. Visited Langtang valley, Gosaikunda pass and decided last minute to go do Poon Hill and see Pokhara. Nepal Social Treks was fast and friendly with their responses. They listened to what we wanted and allowed us to really shape our own trip. They made us feel as though we were never alone in Nepal. The highlight was really our guide, however, Mohan was knowledgeable and kind and made us feel Nepali by the time we said goodbye. -Michael Eaton (Botswana)
  5. Langtang Valley Trek
    Many thanks to Basu and his team for the organization of our six days trek in the Langtang valley. The few issues we had were immediately solved and the team showed fantastic flexibility to adapt the program to our last-minute wishes. Many thanks also to Achut, our guide, who not only showed a high sense of responsibility, taking continuously care about our safety and health but also had a wide-open eye for everything nature was offering us: birds, landscapes, monkeys, flowers... we would not have discovered by ourselves. The porters also were very kind and helpful. We enjoyed doing this trek with Nepal Social and highly recommend this organization.
  6. Langtang Valley Trek
    My trek to Tamang Heritage & Langtang for 10 days was amazing. I am fortunate and grateful to have met Basu and Ram from Nepal Social on my first day in Nepal. I was reading lonely planet and literally looking for a trekking company I must go with. Then they were there! in the restaurant, sitting next to me! They gave me various advice as a friend at the dinner table, no forcing, no persistence, never tried to make me as their "customer", which made me really comfortable and trust them. Next day I went to their office and arranged my trekking as well as air ticket to Pokhara. They organized them very quickly for me and I had wonderful guide and porter. I really enjoyed not only my trekking but whole stay in Nepal. People in Nepal Social were always reachable and treated me like family. I would like to deliver my deep appreciation and much love to Nepal Social, especially Basu and Ram here once again. I would strongly recommend Nepal Social if you think of trekking in Nepal.
  7. Langtang Valley Trek
    It was my first time to Nepal I decided to choose Travel Company Nepal Social Treks. I went on trekking to Everest Base camp Trek friend of mine went with them last year to Langtang trekking. They helped me to customize our itinerary and daily plan and suggest me the best option available on our time and very responsive on the email and on each of my silly questions as well. The company has really great teamwork and Basu had high knowledge. Also, they did great caring. They are the great company to travel in Nepal Himalayas and also I am planning next my trek with them for a longer one and already promise my self to go with Nepal Social treks. If you plan to go to Nepal go with them. A great company to plan your trip!!
