Trekking

Langtang Valley Trek

Langtang is the closest mountain region to Kathmandu. Even though it is close to Kathmandu it is as wild as rural landscapes of Nepal get. Langtang valley is located in Langtang National Park. Approximately 5,000 people live at this national park. The majority of the population is from the community called Tamang, most of whom are associated with Tibetan Buddhism.
The beginning point of our trekking is at Shaprubesi, which is several hours drive from Kathmandu. Further ahead we trek through the forests of oak, maple and rhododendron following the Langtang River. Langtang Luring (7,234m/23,734ft), Langtang Ri(7,205 m /23,638 ft), and Dorje Lakpa (6,966 m /22,854 ft) are the major peaks we will see during our trekking.

Accommodation During Trekking
During the trek, we will be staying at local teahouses. These offer accommodation and food served in a dining room which also functions as a social meeting place with other trekkers. All accommodation is on a twin shared basis. A single room is usually available at a little extra cost. The tour guide will arrange the best available accommodation in each village. As we advance to higher and more remote villages it may occasionally be necessary to share a room with more than 2 people. During the treks, most of the bathroom and toilet facilities are shared and toilet can be either a squat or a western toilet.

Meals During Trekking
In Kathmandu we can enjoy authentic Nepalese food such as Thali and Momo at a traditional Nepalese restaurant. For instance the Newari restaurant is a special place serving Newari food (the Newari are the indigenous people of the Kathmandu valley). Newari food is famous and unique. During the trek we will eat traditional Nepalese food as well as more international cuisine (Tibetan, Indian, Italian and continental). Dinner and breakfast will be taken at the teahouse where we spend the night and lunch at one of the trail teahouses.
