Trip Overview

Highlights

Kyangjing Gompa lies in the Langtang region which is the nearest mountainous region from Kathmandu. The Langtang Valley is surrounded by high peaks of great appeal. It became famous ever since the British mountaineer Bill Tillman described it as the most beautiful valley in the world. Once in the valley you are engulfed by the alpine forests and have breath taking view of Langtang glacier in front of you while you trek.
Langtang is one of the least trekked, yet one of the most beautiful, trekking areas. Located north of the Kathmandu Valley, the route goes through traditional and ethnic villages and untouched forests on the way to the peaks of Langtang-Lirung. This trek reveals the contrast between the Hindus culture and the Buddhists culture. The highlights of Langtang Trek include the visit to Langtang Valley, Kyanjin Gompa (monastery) and the Lirung Glacier. One can also climb the Langsisa Peak and visit to Gosainkunda Lake.
The Langtang valley, commonly known the valley of glaciers, offers pine forest, swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks, grassy downs and meadows strewn with daisies and wild premolar. In the upper part of the valley there are snow ridges spanning angry torrents, high passes enveloped in mist, tiny lakes of crystalline brightness and glaciated mountain giants.
