Langtang and Helambu Trek
Helambu - Langtang Trek

Langtang Helambu trek to Kyanjin Gompa, climb Yala Peak, Gosainkunda Lakes and the Sherpa villages of Helambu.

14-Day LANGTANG & HELAMBU Lodge Trek
Trekking To A Himalayan National Park - A Naturalist's Trail.

North of Kathmandu valley lies Ganesh Himal and Langtang Lirung. Nestled at the foot of these Himalayan ranges is a beautiful, secluded, valley filled with natures bounty - the Langtang National Park. Here the rare red pandas lurk in dense lichen-draped rhododendron thickets, heards of blue sheep graze the alpine meadows and lammergeiers glide over glaciated valleys amidst a scenery of lofty Himalayan peaks. From Kyanjin Gompa we will have a chance to climb a ridge on Yala Peak, or hike to the foot of Langshisa glacier, for an incredible view of glaciers, icefalls and snow fields surrounded on all sides by high mountains. The Helambu villages, over the holy Gosainkunda lakes and Laurebenayak pass, are the home of the Sherpas of Nepal.. Their slate and single-roofed villages, that dot the terraced hillsides, present very fine trekking. The region of Langtang and Helambu although easily approached from Kathmandu is far less trekked than the Annapurna or Everest areas making it all the more attractive. A wonderful walk through a naturalist's trail.

Moderate to difficult Helambu-Langtang trek between 2000m (6,500ft) and 4,380m (14,366ft) with one pass crossing of 4,610m (15,120ft) and optional hiking to 5,100m (16,700ft) on Yala Peak. Accommodation in comfortable lodges run by local families. The trek starts with a drive from Kathmandu and includes all meals, services of experienced trek guide and porters to carry luggage. Clients carry a light day-pack only and walk at their own pace.
