Langtang Trek (Central Himalayan’s)

 This trek gives you the opportunity to get right in among the Himalayan peaks. It offers an exceptional diversity of scenery and culture. The combination of two treks gives great adventure through the high altitude passes. Walk through the vast valley of the Upper Mustang district, pass through Tibetan and Tamang villages and stand at the feet of huge glaciers. The valley offers pine forests, swift mountain streams, rugged rock, grassy downs and meadows strewn with wild primula.
