The delightful Langtang valley lies only a few hours north of Kathmandu and is hence the most accessible trekking area in Nepal. Langtang valley was one of the hardest hit regions of Nepal by the April 2015 earthquake, with Langtang village itself being totally wiped out by a massive landslide. The people of Langtang are extremely keen for trekkers to return to bring them income to help them rebuild. The first part of the Langtang trek takes us up through the thickly forested lower valley – a delight in the spring with all the rhododendrons in flower. We emerge from the trees into the upper valley and pass the site of the destroyed Langtang village and have a day to explore the upper valley beyond Kyanjin Gompa. Langtang Lirung (7426m) towers majestically above.
We then retrace our steps partway down the valley and head out through delightful villages, up past the holy lakes of Gosainkund and across the 4610m Lauribinayak pass to reach the Helambu region. The last few days trekking take us through oak forests and villages of the Sherpa inhabited Helambu district to within a few kilometers of Kathmandu itself.
