Trekking to Langtang region offers the opportunities to retrace the path trodden by Bill Tillman, the legendary Himalayan explorer and mountaineer of the 1950’s and to re-discover the Himalayan passes, pristine valleys and diverse ethnic cultures. Though this region is quite close to Kathmandu, it still remains relatively unspoiled and less developed than other trekking regions in Nepal. A few great days of a pleasant walk through a denseforest of Langtang National Park and traditional ethnic settlements takes us to the holy Gosainkunda Lake and alpine yak pasture of Kyangin Gompa while enjoying the mountain views simultaneously.

Over the years Gosainkunda has become one of the sacred pilgrimage spots for Shamans ( the traditional witch doctors) and too many Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims. Crossing over the Laurebinayak Pass at an altitude of 4620 meters with an excellent view into Tibet is simply breathtaking. One can see  Yala Peak (5,520 m) with Jugal Himal and Dorje Lhakpa (6,989 m) in a clear weather. The scenic beauty of the region is just one side of the coin because the Tamang Heritage Trail, which is an inseparable part of the region providing an opportunity to explore and get insight into the very old Tamang culture, lifestyle, livelihood, craftsmanship, costumes, and their uniquely built stone houses.

TREKKING

Trekking in Nepal is a wonderful experience for those who want to combine a great walk along with an insightful cultural experience of diverse ethnicities. While trekking, travelers can enjoy the glimpse of Himalayan Mountains, hidden valleys, magnificent scenery, rich and ancient cultures and get an opportunity to contact local villagers and build relationships with people of another race, culture, and tradition. The trail into the interior parts of the country follows ancient foot trails, which meander through scenic riverbanks, intractably terraced fields and forested ridges connecting picturesque hamlets and mountain villages. Exciting Himalaya offers easy, moderate and challenging trekking possibilities lasting from a few days to almost a month. Previous experience is not necessary for easy and moderate treks.
