Langtang valley trekking trip in Nepal includes complete services Arrival from Kathmandu international to Final Departure after trip end. For this trip, you have to stay at least 3 nights in Kathmandu. During stay in Kathmandu, we have included complete sightseeing of Kathmandu Valley which includes Kathmandu Durbar Square (Known as Hanuman dhoka Durbar square or Basantapur durbar) including Kastamandap ( building made by one tree), Living goddess- Kumari House, Many temples including Shiva Parvati, Taleju Bhawani, Kaal Bhairav etc. We further visit to Swoyambhunath Stupa, Boudhanath Stupa (the biggest stupa in the World) & Pasupatinath temple (Hindus temple). All these 4 Monuments of Kathmandu city is listed in UNESCO world Heritage sites and this is about 6 hours tour for second day of your trip. Langtang valley trek starts with an overland journey to Syabrubesi, a small string of shops and hotels. Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of peaks to the south. This area was designated Nepal’s first Himalayan national park in 1971. This high and isolated region is inhabited by the Tamangs, whose religious practices, language and dress are more similar to those of Tibet then to the traditions of their cousins in the middle hills. According to a legend a lama following a runaway yak discovered the valley. Hence the name – Lang its Tibetan for yak, and tang means to follow. Though is area is relatively close to Kathmandu, the region sees far fewer trekkers than Everest and Annapurna. This trek is easily combined with the Gosainkund Trek.
