Langtang Valley Trail

Langtang Valley Trail

After sightseeing in Kathmandu, we leave on this week-long trekking journey to experience the warmth of the Tamang people and the splendour of their homelands. A 6 - 7 hour drive to Saybru Besi through the Trishuli Valley with its villages, river and mountain scenery, provides our introduction to this culturally rich region steeped in Tibetan tradition. Staying in comfortable lodges each night, we trek firstly to Rimche then Gora Tabela, with wildlife-filled forests, waterfalls, and glimpses of distant mountain peaks en-route. Moving more easily now along a high alpine valley with our first close-up views of snow-capped peaks, we reach the rural village of Langtang with its hard-working farming population.

Langtang Heritage Trek

Langtang Heritage Trek

This 12 day journey which includes a camping-based trek between Langtang and the Ganesh Himal takes us through a culturally rich region steeped in Tibetan tradition. These are homelands to the Tamang people who have a distinct culture, language, and religion and are known as some of the warmest and most welcoming people in Nepal.


Initially making camp at Syabrubesi, we trek north towards the Tibetan border through peaceful valleys with terraced fields and picturesque villages following readily negotiated trails. Panoramic views of snow covered Langtang Lirung, Kerung, Ganesh Himal and Sanjen ranges together with a soak in the natural hot springs at Tatopani are just a few of the highlights we experience to this point.
