Langtang, Helambu Trek

The Langtang Valley trek takes us to an area of Nepal where the influence of trekkersHelambu is less than other major treks. The valley became Nepal's second largest national park in 1997 and boasts healthy forests of rhododendron, fir, blue and chir pine and birch. Wildlife in the park includes leopard, musk deer, Himalayan black bear, languor monkeys and the endangered red panda.

We follow local trails up toward the forbidding high passes into Tibet, through forests and villages, and into the high alpine pastures used by yak herders for centuries. In the upper Langtang valley you are very close to the spectacular snowcapped peaks and will be treated to incredible mountain scenery along with a unique opportunity to experience the life and culture of rural Nepal relatively untouched by western influence
