Among the Langtang Region treks, Langtang Valley trek is a popular trekking package of the area. The trek reaches you to this spectacular valley north of Kathmandu with spectacular scenes of Langtang and Jugal peaks via thick forests of bamboo, oak and rhododendron. Langtang valley runs east west between these mountain ranges and is close to Tibet. So you will encounter cultural affinity with Tibet among the people living in this area. An important destination in the Langtang area is Gosainkunda. Gosainkunda consists of several glacial lakes a few days trek from Syabrubesi in Rasuwa district. A number of Hindu pilgrims flock to Gosainkunda on the day of Janai Purnima, which is the full moon day of late July or early August. Either Syabrubesi or Dhunche serve as the gateway to this region. You can combine Gosainkunda trek to other areas in Langtang.
Whereas Langtang valley trek and Gosainkunda trek start from the north-west of Kathmandu, Helambu trek lies to its north east. Another pristine area with abundant natural scenery and ethnic culture, Helambu village is often known as the finest orchard of the area. Helambu can be combined with Langtang valley if you ready yourself for about 16-18 days of trekking, but in winter, snow makes some of the passes almost impossible to cross. Langtang region is a protected area under Langtang National Park, the fourth biggest national park of Nepal established in 1976 A D. .The professional and experienced trekking company HIMALAYA CHYANGPA TREKS & EXPEDITION always ready to take you on any of the Times needed your treks in the Langtang region:

The road takes a spectacular route, climbing high over the ridges to escape the Kathmandu Valley and providing us with a superb panorama of the Himalayan Range, including the Annapurnas, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and the peaks of the Langtang region that we will soon become better acquainted with.
Day 04Trek to Lama Hotel (2,380m/7,830ft): 6 hrs Our trail initially crosses the Bhote Kosi, flowing down from Tibet, which is literally only a few kilometres away. We then gradually climb up through the sub-tropical forests, teeming with bird-life, to join the trail from Syabru. We follow the river, climbing through uninhabited forest of oak and rhododendron and maybe catching a glimpse of langur monkeys roaming through the trees. We continue climbing along a steep trail to our camp in the forest.
Day 05Trek to Langtang village (3,430m/11,253ft): 6/7 hr As we continue climbing today there are occasional glimpses of Langtang Lirung between the trees. At Ghora Tabela [3000m], the trail emerges from the forest. Once there was a Tibetan resettlement project here, but now it is a Nepalese army post though it has no permanent inhabitants. The trail continues to climb gently and the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during the summer months. There is a monastery which we can visit shortly before arriving at the village of Langtang, the headquarters of the Langtang National Park. The houses of Langtang and its neighbouring villages are of the flat-roofed Tibetan style, surrounded by stone walls enclosing fields of buckwheat, potatoes, wheat, turnips and barley.
Day 06Trek to Kyanjin Gompa (3,870m/12,697ft): 3-1/2 hr The trail climbs gradually through small villages and yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyangjin. Here there is a small monastery and a government-operated cheese factory. We should arrive at Kyangjin by lunch time allowing time to acclimatize and explore the area. It is a dramatic setting, with snow covered peaks surrounding us in all directions.
Day 07Excursion to Tsergo Ri (5033m/16,508 ft) and back to Kyanjin: 7/ 8 hrs A day to rest and explore the area.

Best Season :
Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for trekking in the Langtang region. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature, then taking this trip during winter (Dec., Jan., Feb.) could also be an option. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh for most guests. Trekking in the summer or monsoon season(June to Aug) will be affected by rain but the summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.
