Langtang valley trek is one of the least trekked, yet one of the calm and scenic trekking areas located north of the Kathmandu Valley. The route goes through traditional and ethnic villages and untouched forests on the way to the peaks of Langtang-Lirung. The route is not so steep and the altitude is relatively low that anyone who is physically fit can do this trek easily.

Walking along the Langtang River crossing many forests and hills, ascending the trail experiencing the changes in vegetation and hearing the rhythms of different birds, hoping to see the different animals including endangered Red Panda, observing the lifestyle of locals and their hospitality and occasionally appearance of the Himalayas in the trail energize you as such that you will reach in the destination without feeling tired. After reaching the Kyangjin Gompa, view of the massive Langtang Lirung and other peaks as well as glacier take away all your hardness.
