Langtang in Rasuwa district is known for fascinating valleys, icy lakes and close-up views of mountains. The Langtang Valley is one of the most satisfying short treks available in the Himalayan region. It is within easy reach from Kathmandu valley. This is the only major trek that takes off from Kathmandu valley itself.
The Langtang valley is a land of spectacular alpine scenery and a place of unique culture and traditions. At least one week of trekking is required, but trekkers are advised to take more time for acclimatization by adding a few days to their itinerary.
Buses go up to Syabrubesi from Kathmandu, 145km/ 6-8 hour journey depending on road conditions. Kyangjin Gompa (3,870m) is a very popular monastery in this region and was built many centuries ago. Above Kyangjin is the viewpoint of Tsergo Ri (4,984m) which allows superb views of the valley all the way to Ganja La.
Langtang Lirung (7,245m) and Dorge Lakpa (6,989m) are the major peaks seen from this area. The Gosaikunda Lake is an important pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists. On the way you can see hillsides covered with rhododendron and there are great views of the mountains from the lake. The Langtang valley was declared a National Park in 1976 and is the second largest in Nepal covering an area of 1,700 sq. km.
