The nearest big trekking destination from Kathmandu is Langtang Valley. The culture has been preserved for thousands of years with magnificent landscape.

Less tourists visit this trek making it more adventurous. Apart from the spectacular scenery, a visit to the area is an opportunity to explore the lifestyle and culture of the Tamangs, whose craftsmanship, language, dress and houses bear their uniqueness. Langtang is also known for its many glaciers – of which there are more than 70 of varying sizes – and high altitude lakes that include Gosainkunda, Parvatikunda, Bhairavkunda and Dudhkunda. The forests in the region have temperate and sub-alpine vegetation. Wildlife includes migratory birds, deer, monkeys, tahr and pika.

The trek to Langtang valley starts at Syabru Besi which is about 8 hours drive from Kathmandu. Initially the trail ascends a fairly deep densely forested valley which opens up into a wide flower scattered alpine meadow which at times of the year is covered with flowers. The old settlements of Langtang and Kyangjin Gompa are here. Langtang valley trek will suit those with limited time, particularly those with an interest in nature due to the broad range of flora and fauna.
