Langtang Valley Trek
This is a fantastic ten day trek in the superb Langtang valley and the closest National Parks to Kathmandu. The valley is renowned for its beautiful cedar forests and flowers during the spring season and the views of soaring Himalayan peaks close to the Tibetan border higher up, including Shishapangma, one of the 8000 metre peaks.
We drive to the Park with 4x4 vehicles and trek through the Park using lodges and porters with a Sherpa guide. The terrain is mountainous but not precipitous, with forest, terraced hill slopes and valley paths leading to high pastures and eventually the moraine of the glaciers and the peaks.
The Langtang National Park is a protected area where the majority of residents are Tamang and the climatic zones range from subtropical to alpine. It remained unknown until Bill Tilman’s expedition in 1949, the same year that the Royal Geographic Society and the Alpine Club asked for permission to explore the south side of Everest; this was refused, but Tilman and Peter Lloyd were allowed into Langtang, where they searched for a way into Tibet. Tilman discovered a pass (still called Tilman’s Pass) beyond Gangchempo leading south through the wild Jugal Himal and back to Kathmandu.
Tamang Heritage Trail
The Tamang Heritage Trail passes through verdant midlands of Nepal experiencing the culture of the people who live here, traditional Tamang villages where life, culture and crafts are completely traditional. This heritage trail has only recently been opened for trekkers but offers a lovely addition to the Langtang trek, best done on the return.
