The Langtang Valley Trek is the most famous trekking route in the Langtang Region. This trek provides you the beautiful views of the Langtang Valley, Langtang Lirung, The Yala peak and the rich wilderness route of the Langtang Region. Interacting with people of Tamang ethnicity here is like sharing the best Buddhist culture anywhere in the world. All these prime factors together form up a trekking package known as Langtang Valley Trek.
This valley which is a tourism site is the closest to the Kathmandu Valley. It is also known as the valley of glaciers. The valley is formed by pine forests, ever flowing mountain streams, rugged rough rocks, snow-capped hills and green meadows sprinkled with beautiful flowers and animals. Just after stepping into the Langtang Valley, you get a heavenly essence of being alive and feel lucky enough to have this opportunity of capturing the flawless view around.
Trekking just after monsoon here lets you view the silver bright snow-capped peak known as Langtang Lirung [7,246m]. Beside the mountain views, the spot also allows viewing of beautiful birds and animals. They just add a live flavour to the artistic design of nature. The name of the valley comes from a legendary story which describes as a Lama who discovered this valley while following this place with a Yak along. Lang is the Tibetan term for Yak and Tang means to follow. This two words together form up the name Langtang.
It is recommended that you stay a few more days than planned and explore the beautiful glacier scenes around. Finally we return back to Kathmandu crossing the famous holy lake known as Gosainkunda.
