This trek is suitable for the one who wants to enjoy the scenic beauty of Himalayas and wants to walk short easy steps and lower altitude at the same time. The valley is well-preserved by the locals.

The main attraction of Langtang village trek is Langtang Valley, Ganjala Pass, Gosainkunda Lake, and Langtang National Park. Apart from that our guide will show you other splendid attraction of the valley from where you can see all the Himalayan ranges. Gosainkunda Lake is one of the holiest places of the Hindu and Buddhist religion. it is regarded as the abode of the Hindu god Shiva and Gauri.  Many pilgrimages of Nepal and Indra visit Gosaikunda lake during a major Hindu festival. Similarly, Ganjala Pass separates Langtang valley and Helambu Valley. It is very challenging, and need climbing knowledge along with knowledge of rope fixing.

Langtang valley is close to Tibet, so they follow the Buddhist religion. You will get an opportunity to see their cultural and lifestyle closely. Further, you will get the Buddhist temples and monasteries. All their lifestyles, traditional clothes, culture, houses clearly reflect the Tibetan culture. The people of the Langtang Valley are the descendants of Tibet, later they intermingle with the Tamang people of Helambu.

The valley that rose from the devastating Earthquake

In 25th April 2015, Nepalese felt the worst earthquake with the magnitude of 7.8, killing around 9,000 people and injured about 22,000. This earthquake precipitated the avalanche in Mount Everest killing 21 and marked as the deadliest in Mount Everest History. Similarly, the earthquake also affects the Langtang valley which prompts the avalanche in the area, called Langtang Lirung Glacier, swiping away the entire Hotel, Lodge, House, Livestock of the valley. The trekking was closed for more than a year. Now it is reopened and recreated a path for a trekking which gives you the pleasant experience as it has always has been.
