Overview

Langtang Circuit Trek is a magical combination of adventure, biodiversity, spectacular Himalayan snow-capped peaks, and Tibetan influenced cultural and ethnic encounters. This trek offers several reasons to join; rhododendron forests, culturally rich villages, white Himalayan peaks, majestic waterfalls, high altitude lakes, glaciers, several endangered wild animals, natural hot springs, etc. This trek is the combination of Langtang Valley, Gosainkunda Lake, and Helambu village. The start starts from Syabrubensi, completes the Langtang region first, Gosainkunda region in the middle and Helambu valley at the end.
Langtang Circuit Trek is a wonderful trekking route. This trek is suitable for everyone, whether a beginner or an experienced hiker. Although most part of the trail is easy to a moderate level, there involves some steep ascending and descending as well. The trail is a spectacular adventure that a trekker can give a try; away from hustles and bustles. We will be exploring Tamang and Shera communities and their cultures / traditions most of the time.
Unlike crowded and commercialized Annapurna and Everest region treks, trekking in this region is a lot different and most enjoyable. As the region serves fewer tourists every year, Langtang Circuit Trekking is also an ideal route for travelers looking for a quiet trail in the Himalayas. Taking about two and a half weeks, this trek is an ideal route for people wanting to trek in a peaceful environment.
