Langtang Valley Trek is certainly one of the most wonderful short walking tours in the Himalayas. The trek goes to the Langtang region and is the nearest Himalayan trekking region from Kathmandu. You do not only enjoy the beautiful mountains and the surroundings but also experience high energy filled spiritual atmosphere.
Langtang valley was badly hit by the earthquake in 2015 with a huge casualty. Although the devastation was huge, the area has come on complete operation now. Trekkers can walk in the region safely and definitely enjoy the wonders there as before the devastation.
Langtang Valley Trek is a wonderful mixture of culture and nature. The innocent and friendly Tamang people living in the region have very rich traditional cultural values. The trekking brings you closer to the cultural lifestyle of ethnic Tamang people. In addition to the cultural wonders, nature does wonderful justice to the trekking effort that shows in the region.
Fascinating mountains and wonderful landscapes enrich your adventure experience in addition to the cultural wonders of the region.
