THE LANGTANG HIGHLANDS (23 DAYS)

trekking langtang - trek langtang

Discovering the Langtang region by the high paths... never seen !

An exclusive trek with a wish to create a new itinerary unexisting yet. Reserved to the good walkers and adventurers and people willing to discover a wild and unexplored nature in the heart of the Himalaya.

This exceptional trek is the wonderful project to offer a new choice, different from the Langtang and Gosaikunda treks. It will let you discover the high altitudes of the region which haven't been visited yet.

Before that trek, if you wanted to hike between the two main areas of that region (Langtang and Gosaikunda) you had only 2 option :

1 - Making a round trip in Langtang Valley and then reach Gosaikunda.

2 - Cross the high Pass of Ganja La (5130m), then get down to the Helambu region and climb up steeply to Gosaikunda. 

Today, Nepatrek is the ONLY agency offering you the opportunity to go in Langtang by an adventurous trip crossing a wild and magnificient environment with wonderful landscapes and of course not explored yet.  

In 18 days walk, you will cross the low valleys around Nuwakot, then climb progressively to the highlands of Langtang. The main adventurous part is located between the holy lakes of Gosaikunda and the hudge Langtang Lirung Range, in the Tamang culture.   

You will also have the opportunity to cross three high passes including the Ganja La (5130m), highest point of the trek.

For a good acclimatization, 2 full rest days are included in Gosaikunda (4380m) and Kyanjin Gompa (3850m).

For the first time in Langtang, this itinerary will let you discover the region from the high route and not from the deep valleys. We hope that with that new route the Langtang region will be a competitive region compared with Annapurnas and Everest treks which are famous for the high altitude and Himalayan landscapes. 

Now Langtang does have to be shy !

 

 

Dear friends, hikers or adventurers, don't hesitate a minute and be the first in the world to explore the highlands of Langtang !

 

That trek is for good trekkers having experience. There is no track during 6 days and no clearly known track during 5 days. Get ready to face some really long days walk and unexpected situations making that expedition sometimes hard. (especially during the 6 days in the highlands).
