Langtang Region Trekking

Langtang Region

The third most popular region of Nepal for trekking tours, Langtang is a region in the high altitudes of the Himalayan range. Langtang offers superb Himalayan views, lush valleys, Tibetan monasteries, Tamang culture, the holy Gosainkunda Lake, and opportunities for wildlife spotting.

The Langtang Region is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north, and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. Dominating the valley are the peaks of Langtang Lirung (7246m) in the north, Gang Chhenpo (6388m) and Naya Kanga Ri (5846m) in the south, and Dorje Lakpa (6966m) in the east.

This high and isolated region is inhabited by the Tamang people. Tamang religious practices, language and dress have much more in common with their Tibetan neighbours than their cousins of Nepal. A visit to the Langtang Valley provides trekkers with an opportunity to explore remote villages while climbing small peaks and glaciers at a comfortable elevation.

The Treks

Trekking in Langtang is suitable for all ages and abilities from adventurous hikers to mountaineers. There are many different trekking trails throughout the region, which vary from moderate to challenging. Some of the more popular routes are the Langtang Valley trek, Gosainkunda trek, Helambu Valley trek, Tamang Heritage trail, Ganjala pass trek, Yala Peak climb, and the Tilman pass trek.

A favourite of many travellers is the trek to holy Gosainkunda lake, at 4300m. Every August there is a festival for which thousands of Hindu pilgrims visit the lake for pilgrimage. To join them or see the area at this time would be an unforgettable cultural experience.

Alternatively, the Helambu Valley is a popular place to meet Sherpa people. Here trekkers can find yet another different culture  and religion to immerse themselves in. Helambu is only 75km north of Kathmandu, and can easily be included in a Langtang Valley and Gosainkunda trek.

Volunteer Society Treks Nepal has operated numerous treks throughout the Langtang Region. The treks are achievable for all age groups and abilities. The best times of year to experience this stunning mountain region are from March to April, and September to November.
