Langtang is # 43 on the New York Times list of 52 Places to Go in 2017. This area is North of Kathmandu Valley and borders on Tibet. The scenery is spectacular, and the trek more adventurous as the area is visited by fewer tourists. Nepal's first Himalayan National Park is inhabited by Tamang (originally tibetan Horse traders) and Sherpa people whose religious practices, language and dress are much more similar to those of Tibet.
We’ll trek through alpine terrain, verdant midlands, rustic villages and monasteries. The scenery is spectacular, and the trek more adventurous as the area is visited by fewer tourists. The forests in the region have temperate and sub-alpine vegetation. Wildlife includes migratory birds, deer, monkey, Tahr and Pika. We will be camping.
Begin and end in Kathmandu. Includes well-equipped tenting, support crew, portage of bags and all meals.
This is a 13-day moderate level 2 camping trek. The altitude in the mountains and the foothills is about 7,000 but reaches 14,000 feet at one pass. The hike varies day to day and will be an average of 8 miles per day.
