It is between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. Langtang Lirung (7246m) dominates the valley to the north; Gang Chhenpo (6388m) and Naya Kangri (5864m) lie to the south; and Dorge Lakpa (69866m) protects the east end of the valley. The area was designated Nepal's first Himalayan national park in 1971. This high and isolated region is inhabited by Tamangs whose religious practices, language and dress are much more similar to those of Tibet than to the traditions of their cousins in the Middle Hills. Langtang valley trekking offers an opportunity to explore villages, climb small peaks and visit glaciers at a comfortably low elevation. According to legend a lama following a runaway yak discovered the valley. Hence the name- lang is Tibetan for 'yak' and teng (more correctly dhang) means 'to follow'.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this trek on which we were expertly guided by Shiva Prasad. As mature age trekkers we found Shiva to be highly organised, exceptionally aware of our safety and comfort and a source of interesting information on all the sites and mountain peaks we saw. He was great company and we would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a safe and enjoyable trek.

I just completed a climb with Trekking Planner- Gyeljan Sherpa and I summited Mera peak on 4/30 and made a dream of mine come true! This is the second time i come to Nepal with Trekking Planner and it is always a pleasure to plan and work with Dipak! Everything is organized to the smallest detail-from airport pick up, to meals and gear rentals-everything is great every time! Gyeljan was more than an excellent guide, he made sure i am ok at all times not only physically but mentally also when above 6000m! Pasang was also making sure i am well fed and taken care of at all times while at the lodges. Dipak made sure the return and stay at hotel was rescheduled smoothly due to ongoing changes. This is an amazing company that provides the best service both in Kathmandu and high in the mountains! I will be back next year for sure!!! Thank you for everything!!!
