The Langtang Valley Trek, sometimes called “the valley of the glaciers” is in close proximity to Kathmandu which makes it a an easily accessible hiking destination. As the nickname implies, there are many glaciers at a low altitude which can easily be explored. The name Langtang comes from an ancient legend wherein a Tibetan Lama was searching for his yak (in Tibetan lang) and following (in Tibetan tang) it found this amazing valley.
This trek gives you experience about the traditions and culture of the Tamang people who live in the region and how they share many of the same customs as the Tibetans. Trekking through a sub-tropical jungle, then a dense forest of oak, birch and pine, the valley opens out onto alpine meadows and yak pastures. The highlight in spring is beholding the splendor of these high meadows carpeted with a rich variety of alpine wildflowers and the forests in full bloom with rare tree orchids, wild primulas and colourful rhododendron.
We recommend you allow 7 days for this trek from Kathmandu. It can be completed in as little as 5 nights without rushing. And it is suitable for beginners to expert and family to group trekkers.
The Langtang Valley is ranging from 1460 meters to 3800 meters. It’s like an easy to moderate level since it comprises many ups and downs along the trails. It would be best if you walked 6 to 7 hours a day. Trekking in Langtang is ideal for a reasonably fit individual and does not require prior trekking experience or practice.
The best time to do this trek is mid-September to early December but this is also Nepal’s peak season.
Mid-February till the end of April is the second best time of year for trekking, this is at the end of the dry season.
December, January and February bring clear skies but it’s a lot colder. And snowfall can make it difficult.
June to Mid September is the least popular time because of the rain, and cloud.
