This short trek captures the essence of the landscapes and character of Nepal. Contouring along the northern side of the lower Langtang Valley, in view of the surrounding peaks, we trek among the villages and farmlands of its people, many of whom are of Tibetan origin.
Once an important trading route with Tibet, this influence is reflected in the character of the villages and peoples. Gradually gaining height, we emerge above the tree line into a broad glaciated valley, dominated by the awesome face of Langtang Lirung. Here, in the valley’s ice-scoured upper reaches, we have three days set aside to explore a jumble of peaks, glaciers and moraines.
