The Langtang Valley trek is one of the closest trekking destination from Kathmandu and is lesser used by both trekkers and local. The Langtang valley is aptly called the valley of glaciers here; mountains raise soaring toward the sky. The valley offers pine forest, swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks, grassy down and meadows sprinkled with daises and wild animals. In the upper part of the valley there are snow ridges spanning angry torrents, high passes enveloped in mist tiny lakes of crystalline brightness and glaciated mountain giants. Once you enter the Langtang valley you will see fluttering buddies prayer flags, brightly painted.
This trek is closer to Kathmandu than other trekking region. Just after the monsoon, this trek gives superb views of the great peak of Langtang Lirung (7246m), which dominates the upper valley and be astride the Tibetan border. In springtime it is an ideal place to spot birds and flowers of Nepal. According to a legend, a lama following a runaway yak discovered the valley, hence the name -Lang (Tibetan name for YAK), Tang (more currently “hang” means to follow). There are good opportunities for moderate climbing excursions. Here, you should allow some extra days for exploration of the extensive glacier system. We return by passing the holy lakes of Gosainkunda, an important place of pilgrimage, and over a high pass that brings us almost to the edge of Kathmandu itself.
