Langtang Valley Trek is also known as Glacial Trek due to the presence of numerous glaciers along the trail. Viewpoints and passes offer excellent mountain vistas and passes through ethnic villages of the Tamang. The trail passes through lush forests, and is rich for bird watching. Rhododendron hills, monasteries and prayer flags also form formidable marks along the way.
Langtang Valley Trekking is popular for scenic views of snowcapped mountain ranges and dangerous yet attractive glaciers. The valley of Langtang lies 30 kilometers north of Kathmandu. Easily accessible, yet offering varied vegetation and wildlife, the trail passes through ethnic Tamang villages that are welcoming and hospitable.
