Trekking Langtang

Hike up through an ever-changing landscape of flower-filled fields and lush green forests before emerging among monasteries and villages. As a reward, take in the impressive sight of the Langtang Glacier and stay in rustic villages and monasteries. If you're longing to get off the overcrowded path from Base Camp, this unique hike is the perfect solution.
