Langtang valley trekking is one of the foremost popular trekking destinations in Nepal. Langtang valley lies closer to Kathmandu than other trekking regions and is lesser employed by both trekkers and locals. As a result, situated near the Tibetan border within the north of Kathmandu this trek is relatively short.
However, the trek comprises numerous beautiful landscapes, meadows and old monasteries. Sherpa & Tamangs people are the main residents of this area. Although the Sherpa of Langtang is of Tibetan origin they are quite distinct from the sherpas of Solukhumbu both in language and customs.
Even more, the Langtang area contains a board variety of climatic zones, from subtropical to alpine. Almost 25% of the area is forested. The diverse range of trees such as the deciduous Oak and Maple, evergreens like Pine, and various types of Rhododendron are found here. Also animals like Red Panda, Snow Leopard, Clouded Leopard, Musk Deer, and Himalayan Tahr, etc are found in this area. In addition, the great Himalayan range like Ganesh Himal, Gaurishankar, Yala peak, Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa, Naya Kanga, Langshisa Ri, Gangchenpo, etc can be observed.
February, March, April, May, June, September, October, November & December are the best seasons for Langtang trek in order to explore a clear view of Himalayas. While in the context of December & February, the temperature is too cold but the visibility is still good. Some trekkers choose this time because there are very only a few tourists on the trails.
Even more, Helambu trek and Gosaikunda Trek are another major trekking route popular in this area.
