Review of Trail: Why Trekking to Langtang Valley
In my personal view, Langtang region trekking is one of the best choices for those tourists. It is the perfect destination for those who want to see flora and fauna with great mountain views. Moreover, this region is the easiest trekking route to get there as it doesn’t require a flight or a long hours drive. It is just 122 km drive from Kathmandu to the northern side.
Trip to Langtang can be observed via two aspects natural and cultural. Culturally this journey is perfect to explore the Tamang settlements in the Langtang Valley. Diverse ethnic people reside there around including Sherpa, Newars, and Chhetries with their rich and unique culture. Naturally, we can explore the magnificent view of the Langtang National Park, lavish hills, terraced fields, and beautiful gorges. Different species of endangered animals such as Red Panda, wild deer, Himalayan Thar, and the national bird of our country- Danphe can be explored in this journey. With the inclusion of Kathmandu arrival day and departure day, you can complete the Langtang Valley trek in 9 days.
Nonetheless, Lantang is a less spoiled trekking zone in Nepal. It is not as crowded as Everest and Annapurna. All the treks of this region are located inside the Langtang National Park. Around 25% of this park is covered with forest. So it is the perfect trail for those who are looking for a less traffic trek.
All in all, I personally recommend making a journey to Langtang for all once in life.

LANGTANG VALLEY TREKKING REVIEWS
Langtang Hike in February
I contacted Jayaram for Langtang Trek, from BASE CAMP HIKE. He helped me to make a private hike to Langtang. I did Langtang Hiking in mid-February and it was unforgettable. The trail was covered by snow from Godatabela and beyond part is very cold. But the scenery was magical. Especially from view, Tserkuri was eye-catching.
Regarding trip management, It was perfectly organized. How everything was so organized, in detail. I didn’t have to worry about anything.
Navaraj was my guide and he was professional and friendly. It was amazing to learn from his experience(not only about the mountains but also about Nepali culture).
I would definitely recommend trekking with Base Camp Hike and Nabaraj. I will come to Everest Base Camp Trekking soon and go with them.
Helpful Team, Wonderful Langtang Trek
Jayaram, Nabaraj, Dipendre and all the guys in Base Camp Hike have solutions for everything. We got very fast response from Jayaram while we were corresponding via email.
Mid-March 2022, We had a wonderful trek to Langtang area and it was top organized. Our guide Ram was just perfect, always smiling and helping with everything, even with learning some Nepali on the way.
Thank all of you and see you next time!!
Best female trekking guide!
I did Langtang trek in 2019 and that was memorable. Before the trek, I thought a lot regarding trip mode. At last, I decided to go trekking with a female guide and booked with Base Camp Hike. Jayaram(Founder of Base Camp Hike) arranged everything perfectly. I got Binita as my travel companion. She was very humble and professional. If you are like me and prefer to travel with a female guide, look no further. Go with Base Camp Hike.
Response from Base Camp Hike
