The Langtang valley, also known as “valley of glaciers” offers an abundance of wildlife, rich cultural and historical importance. Couple this with picturesque scenery such as pine forests, swift mountain streams, rugged rocks and mountains rising up; it is bound to be a unique experience.

During this trek, you will understand the history of the Tibetan ancestry and their way of living, agriculture, and trade. After the massive earthquake in 2015, most of the Langtang valley was destroyed and now they are making a comeback as you can see the warm and gentle smile while welcoming you.
