Langtang Valley short Trek and Tamang culture and communities
Langtang is a region in the north-central Himalayas of the Bagmati Province of Nepal. The region borders Tibet and was once an important trading route. We can still see the influence in the rich local culture. The area is renowned for its beautiful cedar forests and flowers and jaw dropping views of soaring Himalayan peaks including the mighty Shishapangma which is one of the 8000 metre peaks, Manaslu Massif, Ganesh, Langtang and Jugal Himal.
The trek starts at the small town of Syabru Besi. You will trek through magnificent forests to the high alpine meadows and yak pastures around Kyangjin Gompa (a Buddhist monastery). After an (optional) day hike up to the top of Kyangjin Ri (peak), where the 360-degree views of the Himalayan mountains are truly spectacular, you retrace your route back down the valley and drive back to Kathmandu.
* Sightseeing in Kathmandu’s major UNESCO World Heritage Sites
* Pass through stunning forests, high alpine meadows, and yak pastures
* Enjoy panoramic views across vast open valleys at the end of the trek
