Overview

Trekking to the third popular region, just south of the Tibetan border offers an opportunity to explore interesting Tibetan style villages, monasteries and peoples 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; as well as visiting glaciers at the head of the valley. An optional climb to the Yala peak provides stunning views. From Kathmandu, we take 8hrs. drive on a hair-raising mountain road to Dhunche and start of our trek. We climb through beautiful Chir and Blue pine forest before we reach at Shyabru. After crossing the Langtang Khola, we start our climb up the Langtang valley through excellent forests. Magnificent views are seen from Kyangjing Gomba and visiting glacier or climb the peaks at a comfortable low elevation. After descending to Langtang, Ghore Tabela and Shyabru, we do finish the trek at Dhunche from where we have 7hrs. drive to Kathmandu.
