Overview

The Langtang Valley Trek with Gang La Pass takes you to the beautiful Langtang region and the difficult Ganga La Pass (5,122m/16,80ft). Langtang is a short valley located directly beneath the major Langtang range on the Tibetan border to the north and a lower range of snowy peaks on the Tibetan border to the south. Tserko Ri (5,000m/16,404ft) gives a breathtaking vista of the Langtang Himalaya range.

The Langtang Valley with Gang La Pass walk is difficult yet rewarding, with breathtaking views of nature and Tibetan culture. Despite its proximity to Kathmandu, it is protected and considered as the Himalayan’s “best-kept secret.” This walk is one of Nepal’s most diversified treks, with its never-ending company of rhododendron and bamboo forests, spectacular waterfalls, and glorious Himalaya. The Langtang people are thought to have moved from Tibet centuries ago.

This hike is rich in natural beauty, with lush valleys, towering rhododendron, and fir trees exploding with spring color. Langtang National Park protects a range of floral and faunal species, including Himalayan black bears, Red Pandas, and wild boars, as well as unique orchid trees and wildflowers.
