LANGTANG VALLEY TREK

langtang valley trek map

Langtang valley trek map located north part and the nearest Himalayan range from Kathmandu valley. It takes a few hours’ drive from Kathmandu to reach a beautiful Langtang region featuring diverse landscape and ethnicity. We can admire the stunning combination of highlands and rural landscape transcending desert like areas and dense forests, the trek is an ideal way to experience the biodiversity of Nepal. The people living in the highlands of the Langtang region are certainly Nepalese but being the descendant of the Tibetan origin, they look like the Tibetans. One can unravel the mysterious of the Tibetan culture. All the way during trekking passing through waterfalls, rhododendron forests and intimidating snow covered mountains. One can explore remote monasteries nestled in some of the most stunning natural beauty of the Himalayan Region.
