Mt Langtang Area

Click To Enlarge
Although less frequented than the famous Everest and Annapurna routes, the Langtang area offers many advantages to trekkers. To begin with, the starting point of the trek in this area can be reached quickly and easily from Kathmandu. It does not include really high altitudes, it abounds in nature (rhododendron forests, wild orchids wild animals) with stunningly beautiful scenery, and the trail takes trekkers through quaint villages showcasing the major ethnic groups of Nepal. The only drawback of these treks, however, is that they do not afford as much mountain viewing. For mountain viewing, trekkers have the option of climbing to the higher parts of this area.

THE HELAMBU TREK
This is the most easily accessible trekking region. The Helambu trek starts from Sundarijal and makes a loop through Sherpa country. It offers fine mountain views from distance yet the main attraction is the living style of local Sherpa community, breathtaking views of landscapes and natural scenery. This could be the best area for starters and short time hikers due to easy walking, mild weather and climate and low elevation. Tea house trek is also possible.

THE LANGTANG TREK
The Langtang trek leads to a glacier at the foot of Langtang Lirung close to the peak's base camp. The trail offers trekkers an exceptional diversity of scenery and culture.

LANGTANG TO HELAMBU VIA GANJA LA
This trek is feasible only from a few months of the year. Crossing the Ganja La Pass allows trekkers to get high and really close to the surrounding peaks. Self- sufficiency is partly required. Trek can be combined with the climbing to Gonjala Peak. But extra permit cost is applicable on the quoted cost. This trek is possible only few month of the year due to high pass of Ganja la which remains snow filled all the year round and the crossing route is extremely difficult.
