Langtang Trek can be easily accessible from Kathmandu and yet it has somehow managed to guard its secret beauties which make the Langtang valley a trekker's paradise. The majestic mountains of Langtang Lirung (7246m) to the north, Gang Chhenpo (6388m) to the south and Dorje Lhakpa (6990m) to the east dominate the beautiful Langtang valley. Langtang trek passes through lush forest and less visited diverse ethnic groups' settlements to the vantage view point called Kyangin Gompa and beyond. Langtang trek offers an opportunity to explore the rich mingled cultural heritage of Tibetan origin Lama and Tamang people, and their ornately carved wooden windows, lively dance festivals and skilled weaving traditions.
