Trekking Langtang is a breath-taking national park with huge mountain peaks – Langtang Lirung (7,227m) looms over green valleys and Shishapangma (8,013m), the 14th highest mountain in the world, straddles the border between Nepal and China like a giant beast. A major consideration for choosing Langtang is its proximity to nearby Kathmandu which allows for quality high trekking experience for those on a shorter timescale.
High altitude lakes around Gosainkund are frequented by pilgrims on full moons, quiet mountain passes overlook down into Tibet and a carpet scape of meadow flowers provide grazing pasture for Yaks.
Langtang is a perfect option for delivering a multitude of options depending on how energetic you are feeling. The Langtang Traverse via the Tilman Pass (5,308m) is a real consideration which provides exceptional views as you peer down right into Tibet. The landscape dramatically changes where glaciers can be found in one direction, with alpine meadows in the other. The Langtang Khola rages southbound towards the Kathmandu valley with wildlife abundant as packs of langurs can be found playing on the banks.
There is no question that Langtang has everything you could possibly wish for from an expedition to Nepal.
