The Langtang Valley is one of the most beautiful places in Nepal and the closest trekking region near the capital city. Due to the breathtaking views of mountains in the upper part and many layers of hills with green forest in the lower part, the Langtang valley trek has been popular with real trekkers. Langtang valley trek is not for spectacular views of landscapes; it is also for the cultural heritage of Tibetan-speaking people. Langtang valley trek also explores the deciduous, coniferous forest and village located in the lap of mountains.
On this trek, you pass through three different regions that each possess their own distinctive character; the snow-capped peaks of the high Langtang Valley, the rugged beauty of Gosainkunda Lake. You can see the white shining mountains walking through some time jungle and village. As you get higher and higher the valley gets wider and wider with rugged mountains that will make your Langtang valley trek more exciting.
