Langtang Trek

A Wild Journey : Trekking to the Langtang Valley

view

Leaving Kathmandu Valley

Saturday, Feb 13

They say the Wild West is gone, but that is not so. It can be found in the foothills of the Himalaya, where the last organized settlements of humanity are set into the mountainsides and plateaus. In fact, the Wild West of America more than likely stole their raucous thunder from these kindly mountain people, who were living out that tale long before Columbus even reached those famous shores.

Travel assessment – Langtang

village

Langtang’s whereabouts, one of the famous trekking routes in Nepal, was still a mystery after the April earthquake wiped out one of its village clusters into dust. Well, not now, as it has just been 5 days I’ve been back from there. Our route was through Syarbu Besi, where we would access the Langtang Valley from the south and trek to the top of Kyanjin Ri overlooking the mountain.

When I was offered a visit to Langtang for its assessment a month ago from Himalayan Glacier, I was pretty excited. Our team included three HGT staff and one foreign national (Connor, U.S.A). In a week’s journey (5 days trek and 2 days bus ride), we discovered something worth sharing to the travel community, and here I am trying to include everything in writing. Read More

Best of Nepali Treks

main

Legions of trekkers are drawn to Nepal’s most iconic and accessible hiking, some of the world’s best, with rugged trails to Everest, the Annapurnas and beyond. Considered as the ultimate “Himalayan Utopia” by trekkers and mountaineers worldwide, the mysterious land of Nepal offers some of the greatest trekking trails with incredible mountain scenery for a backdrop. Easily the best way to see Nepal is on foot along a network of trails trodden for centuries by porters, traders, pilgrims, mountaineers and locals travelling from village to town, plains to hills, Nepal to Tibet. Nothing beats strolling from teahouse to teahouse under crystal-clear Himalayan skies as an 8000m peak towers over you.

Every year Nepal attracts thousands of trekkers from all around the globe. That also means that every year people are faced with the hard choice of selecting which trekking destination to explore in Nepal. Let us help you find your favorite trek in Nepal with our 10 best treks of all time:

Great Trek

The Langtang Trek was perfect for us! We knew it would be: from the information from your website and from email communication with Sangita, we felt very prepared for the trip after meeting you on Day 1.

We had the best experience trekking up to Kyanjin Gompa, with excellent help from our wonderful guide Pradip and porter Prakas. I think we were extra lucky by being the only two people on this tour, as it became a private trip for us. Pradip was looking after our needs every step of the way, and always going beyond expectations in caring for us. The entire time we felt like a King & Queen! They even woke extra early for us to walk out for a sunrise view of the Himalayas near Kyanjin Ri and brought extra snacks along for us. We took this photo that morning:

We’re already considering what our next Nepal trek might be, and will be thinking of Himalayan Glacier Trekking for that too.

 

Thanks again,

Nepal: A Travel Hub in South Asia

Nepal is increasingly becoming a travel, trek and meeting hub in the South Asia region. After ending of the 10 years Civil War, Nepal has become even more popular travel destination. A recent Global Peace Index says that Nepal is the second most peaceful country in the South Asia. The Australia and US-based Institute of Economic and Peace’s ranking shows that when it comes to peace, Nepal is far more ahead than its neighbors like India, Sri-Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Nepal is even ahead of her northern neighbor China.

Nepal: A Travel Hub in South Asia

That’s one of the reasons why Nepal received a record number of tourists last year. Not only the tourist stay but the average number of days spent by tourists has also increased to a 7-year high in 2011. The trekking route in the Everest, Annapurna, and Langtang region also received increased number of tourist arrivals. The number of mountaineers and the number of their stay also rose in that year.

When we were finally on the top of the Island Peak

It’s difficult to translate in words what we felt and what we saw when we were finally on the top of the Island Peak.

The day was absolutely fantastic – we were very lucky. We have reached the top of the Island Peak mountain at 09:00h in the morning and everything was just perfect. What sensational views!

Everywhere we looked at we just could see big mountains. It’s amazing!

We would like to thank our climbing guide Mr. Pen Sherpa for his great professionalism. He has a great knowledge about these mountains.

Nepal – Being There: a travelogue by Paul Schiemer

A short travelogue I put together after a trip in 2004. There is no boring dialog, but, in its own way, it speaks volumes about being there. NEPAL- a wonderful place with great people and a rich culture, not to mention majestic mountains!

Go there if you can. You are sure to have a fantastic time.
Drop me a line if you have questions about travel there. I’ve been quite a few times- including Bhutan (and I’ll post a video on Bhutan later). Be glad to help.
NAMASTE!
