Trekking in Langtang
Trekking in Langtang region is the third most popular trekking region in Nepal that lies in the north east of Kathmandu. Trekking to this region offers an opportunity to explore Tamang villages, culture and diverse terrain and experience vibrant climatic conditions. Climbing small peaks at a comfortably low elevation will be an extra activity. Much of the trekking trail passes through semi tropical forests where moss covers the ground and orchids cling to tree trunks. One can also visit Lake Gosaikunda, a much-revered holy lake for Hindus and Buddhists. Most of the area covers the Langtang National Park and is still relatively undisturbed, supports a healthy population of wildlife and there are good chance of seeing various species of wild goat and deer, possibly even better. Bird and botanical life are equally impressive all set against the backdrop of the magnificent Himalayan Mountains.
Langtang trek route goes through traditional, ethnic villages and untouched forests on the way to the peaks of Langtang-Lirung. The highlights of this tour include a visit to the Langtang valley, Kyangin Gompa and the Lirung Glacier. One can also climb the Lang Sisa Peak and visit Lake Gosaikunda, which is nearby.
One can catch a bus to Trishuli Bajaar from Kathmandu and from there again drive down to Rasuwa headquarters Dhunche and then to Syabrubesi from where the trek begins.
