"Langtang"

Land of Yaks- 12 days

The Himalaya´ s Natural Park.

Langtang became the first protected Himalayan National Park in 1976.

During the tour of the valley we will have the opportunity to enjoy the hospitality of the locals of Tamang and Sherpa ethnicity, of Buddhist tradition.

At all times we will be surrounded by nature. Rhododendron, pine and bamboo forests full of langur monkeys. Flowing mountain rivers with majestic waterfalls. Grassy meadows where free horses graze and fabulous yaks.

What makes this route more attractive is that in 2 or 3 days you can reach high altitudes while progressively ascending and see mountains of more than 7,000m, which have nothing to envy of the neighboring giants.

Once we get to Kyangyn Gumpa 4,100m we can ascend to the Tserko Ri 4,984m or to Yala Peak 5,520m, from where we have incredible views (180 degrees) of the entire mountain range:
Langtang Lirung 7,227m, Langtang Ri 7,200m, Langshisa Ri 6,413m, Loempo Gang 6,979m, Pemthang Karpo Ri 6,830m, Gangchenpo 6,387m, Yansa Tsenji 6,567m, Ghenhe Liru 6,596m, Shabachum 6,707m and other incredible mountains and glaciers around you…

The landscape is beautiful from start to finish and the views are spectacular. 

From Kathmandu we will travel for about 6 hours by bus to SyabruBesi, where we will start the trek. We also return to Kathmandu on the bus.

As most of the trekking in Langtang takes place below 4,000m, the trail is suitable for hikers of all ages with almost any physical condition.

Of course, we will visit Kathmandu and its monuments declared as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

There is almost no risk of suffering from altitude sickness, since the ascent will be very progressive and with enough time to acclimatize. The days of trekking usually include about 5 hours of walking and generally about 10 to 15 km / day, although there are harder days than others.

The Langtang area is one of the three most popular touristic areas in terms of trekking in the Himalayas.
What makes it so attractive is that in 2 or 3 days you can reach high altitudes while climbing at a steady pace and see mountains of more than 7,000m, which have nothing to envy of the neighboring giants.
After the 2015 earthquake and due to a great avalanche that devastated the town of Langtang, there was a break in this area in terms of tourism. But in a year they recovered the infrastructure for trekking and the survivors, with a lot of outside help and a lot of inner strength, have managed to get everything back to the life of before and everything is perfect to welcome tourists again. This really says a lot about the willpower of this town and the friendships they have forged with foreigners who have been there.

The main trail usually starts at Syapru Besi (after 6 hours by bus) and gently ascends following the Langtang Khola River. Immediately we arrive at fabulous green areas of forest where you can see a great variety of birds and also langur monkeys. As in almost all the classic routes in Nepal, every hour and a half you cross a town or some guest house where you can stop for lunch or rest. You do not need to carry food, or a tent or mats. This will allow you to enjoy the journey and also help the local economy.

The ascent usually ends at Kyangin Gumpa, the last town you’ll find in this area. From here you can make day trips to peaks of almost 5,000m and beautiful glaciers.
The views throughout the trek are impressive: Langtang Lirung (7,227m), Langshisa Ri (6,413m), Loempo Gang (.6979m), Pemthang Karpo Ri (6,830m), Gangchenpo (6,387) and more …

If you have time you can also start the trek in Sundarijal (20 minutes from Kathmandu) and cross the Helambu area and the Gosaikunda lakes, to then link with the road to Langtang. This route is much more complete and you will go through areas where they hardly live from tourism and all the locals continue to work in the fields and with their animals. In this way you can learn more about the culture of its people and also experience rural Nepal.

And to finish you can extend your trek for 3 more days ending in the Tamang Heritage area, where you will discover the home of the ancient Tamang ethnic group very close to the border with Tibet.

A fabulous and very complete tour that will make you vibrate with the landscapes while bringing you closer to the ancient culture of its inhabitants.
