The Langtang Circuit Trek is one of the best trekking experiences around the central Himalayan region and boasts the magical combination of natural beauty with the cultural diversity. This trek is done around Nepal’s 2nd largest national park, the Langtang National Park. Established in early 1976 it was the first National Park around the Himalayas. The route leads us through the high hills of Tamangs’ and Bhotias’ traditional villages where they still practice the Buddhist religion, culture and tradition dating back from its Tibetan origin.

On this trek, you will be completely immersed with amazing vistas of multiple well-known peaks. To the east, you will see the upper meadows of the Langtang that end in a massive mountain wall, forming the frontier with Tibet.

The Langtang circuit trek starts with a drive to Syabrubesi village and then the beautiful Langtang valley proper.
