Trekking in the Langtang Region

Langtang region is one of the most accessible areas for trekking in the North of Kathmandu valley bordering Tibet. The scenery here is spectacular, and the trek more adventurous as most of the better known destinations. It is home to a rich ancient Tibetan culture and diverse ecosystem. The main ethnic groups living here are Sherpa and Tamangs. The forests in this region have temperate and sub alpine vegetation. It is an important migratory route for birds traveling between India and Tibet. There is a series of north south running valleys that provide a variety of possible trekking routes. Helambu region lies to its south, which is often combined or visited separately. Combined one can be commence both clockwise and counter clockwise. Helambu is ideal for short duration treks and especially suited to winter season trips. To the west of Langtang is a wilderness Ganesh Himal that sees very little tourist activities.

Getting There : Dhunchae or Syabruesi is the starting point of Langtang and Ganesh Himal treks, which is accessible only by road. The drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi takes one long day as half of the road condition is not good. Access to Helambu is particularly easy just half an hour drive to north from Kathmandu.
