Langtang Valley Trek Photos

Amongst the three major trekking areas in Nepal, namely, Everest, Annapurna and Langtang, the Langtang valley is the most under trekked. Most of the big name peaks are in the Everest and Annapurna regions, so Langtang has always come third when selecting a trekking destination. In many ways this is real pity because Langtang offers pristine forests, rich bird life, monastic culture and above all some spectacular mountain views of the Langtang Himal topped by the shapely Langtang Lirung. Here are some photographs from the South Col Langtang Valley trek in November-December 2013:

  1. Looking at your wonderful pics, I am overcome by waves of nostalgia; thanks for the memories and also for providing a link to my blog post re Langtang. The mountains look the same, though the lodge signs have become very creative indeed!
