Langtang/Helambu

To the North of the Kathmandu valley you will find the Langtang valley.
Hike along rivers, through bamboo and sal forests, the region is well known for being home to the adorable red panda !
In the high altitudes the forests are replaced by alpine pastures and rocky landscapes.
The trail will take you up to Kyangjin at the foothill of the snowy summits.
Possibility of an excursion to the sacred and amazing Gosaikunda lakes.

Helambu is the closest trekking region to Kathmandu.
If you are limited in time, we recommend the Helambu region as the access time to it is rapid and its itinerary short.
The majority of the inhabitants are Tamang, with a few Sherpa villages in the northern part.

Trek through terraced fields, rhododendron forest and theHimalayas in the background.
