Langtang Valley, also known as the Valley of Glaciers has been a tourist destination trek in the Langtang region of Nepal. With numerous mountains at a distance and the icy glaciers at your disposal, the natural scene that Langtang Valley Trek possesses is remarkable. From Mt.

The beauty of the Nepali, as well as the Tibetan ranges, can be observed throughout the trek with the picturesque view of the area. Trekkers will also enjoy the cultural and ethnics biodiversity as we pass through several villages and observe their unique lifestyle and culture.
Trek to the Langtang Valley is relatively easy. It is a perfect for novice trekkers. However, we do suggest caution as we will be trekking as high as 4,250m and above. Acclimatization is one of the things should be done to adjust to the high altitude. Prior trekking experience can be an asset and high stamina is something that is must. The most suitable time to venture on this epic journey is during the Spring (March – May) and Autumn (September – November).
Langtang region of Nepal is one of the most striking places on earth. This journey to the western Nepal shows for one of the best views of the mountains and landscape that one can ask for. The closer view of the mountains, cultural richness of the region is one of the reasons why Langtang has become a very popular destination for internal and international tourist alike.
