Langtang valley trek is also popularly known as the valley of glaciers trek on the journey to wilderness Himalayas making it one of the wildest trekking in Nepal. Langtang is one of the closest places from Kathmandu Valley where you could get to see huge snow-capped mountains and gorgeous glaciers.

Though Langtang Valley Trek is very close to Kathmandu, the Langtang Region is as wild as any Tibetan highlands with the peaceful rural scenery. The starting point of the trekking will be Syabrubensi. From here we will follow the Langtang River to the east until we get to Kyanjin Gompa (3,880) with the overnight stay at one of the hotel here. Heading up a gentle slope, we pass along the dramatic ridges through local villages inhabited by Tibetans, Tamang and Sherpa people. Then we will come across the lush forest of Rhododendrons and oaks. Once we arrive the Langtang valley we will find flapping prayer flags in the main tracks, brightly painted shortens and Mani walls where yak herders welcome you to the land of these high mountain people. Langtang Lirung, Langshisa, Ganja la Peaks are the center of attraction that we can see during the trek to Langtang Valley trekking trip. 

We will also visit the local yak cheese factory as well as the view of the glaciers, which is also a gateway to Tibet. Then we return back to Syabru village. There is another beautiful and popular trekking trial Langtang Gosainkunda trek on the optional of Langtang valley trek. This voyage takes you off the beaten track into the valley of a hardly untouched people. You will spend these 10 days in utmost joy and happiness with the team of Himalayan Recreation Treks and Expedition.

Heavenly Himalayas and Everest base camp Trek
Trip Date: 04/10/2016

That was my dream to be there once in my life. Everest base camp trek was my dream. But.. last month I was there. it was an unforgettable experience and beautiful achievement of my life. Amazing views of a mountain just in front of my eyes, beautiful views of Khumbu icefall, glacier and glacial lake. Wow ! Heaven on earth.
While I reached in Kalapatthar 5,555 m, I thought I was in the top of the world. I found myself surrounding the beautiful Himalayas such as Mt. Everest, Pumori, Nuptse, Lhotse and so on. By the stunning views of the Himalayas and Himalayan range, I felt nervous and neither I am able to speak nor express my happiness.
Everest base camp trek is adventurous. there is a lot of difficulties. it is also one of the dangerous trekking in the world. I want to recommend all of you to choose good trekking partner. Your smart choice will make your travel successful. I found #Himalayan Recreation is a good one and that was my perfect choice.
I can't forget one kind, helpful and smart person in my lifetime. He is Bharat, my friend, my guide. He made my trekking more beautiful than my expectation.

Thank you so much, Bharat and Team Himalayan recreation.

Great company, Wonderful Everest base camp
