Langtang valley trek is one of the most fulfilling short treks possible anywhere in Nepal. The east-west running valley is the site of some dramatic alpine scenery as well as a great place to meet unique people with different cultural and ethnic values. A minimum of one week is required but trekkers are well-advised to add a few extra days for acclimatization and for side trips in and around the valley. Along the journey, we will walk through the Langtang National Park. Although wildlife is never easy to spot in a forest setting, where we will get a chance to see some fascinating animals and birds. Among those found in the park are monkeys, musk deer, Pika and the national bird of Nepal, the interesting Danphe. The Langtang valley trek can be started either from Dhunche or from Syabru Besi
