trip overview

After a 6 to 7-hour picturesque drive from Kathmandu, the Langtang Short Trek starts at Syabru Besi. The trail winds its way through a forest of uncommon pine, juniper, rhododendron, bamboo, and other plants, as well as fast mountain streams, craggy rock, and at first, snow-capped summits. Most of the time the Langtang Short Trek track follows the Langtang River, however after you reach Ghodatabela the valley widens and opens up to a spectacular view of the Langtang Himal range as you move toward the Langtang and Kyanging Gumpa settlements. When you go on the Langtang Short Trek in the spring, rhododendron, orchid, and magnolia blossoms color the jungle, and the lofty mountains appear to be smiling a friendly white face at you.

You will spend the majority of your time walking in Langtang National Park. Where you can come across uncommon animals like red pandas, Himalayan black bears, wild boars, and Langur monkeys. The majority of the population in this region consists of ethnic Tamang groups. Who has carried on their culture, traditions, and farming practices from their ancestors to the present? Some individuals have a nomadic approach to livestock husbandry. If you’ve been to Tibet before, the short and simple trek up Langtang will bring back memories of your time there. Similar to Tibetan culture, way of life, and religious beliefs.

Langtang Valley – 2023
Langtang Valley was once famous as Namgodagam. Which means a secret country or the heavenly gate in the shape of a half-moon. The Langtang Valley of the Rasuwa districts is where this Hidden land is located. This location is revealed by the Teton Goden Chen and afterward opened for exact meditation by Guru Thetan Glacken. When Namgodagam was first established. It was popular by the name Langtang, which had mythological connotations. Lang is the Nepali word for ox (male yak), and Thang is Khet (area). The ox turns flat on its back as the owner of Lang and another ox with two horns pursue the animal. This occurrence gave rise to the name Langtang. With the name Lansiya, Langshisa, the location of the ox’s death, is further illustrated.

The locals still hold annual rites honoring the dead bull in this area. Tibetans arrived in the southern region of the hidden country and began settling there. Kyanjin Gumba is the settlement’s administrative center, and pilgrims travel there to practice meditation. Additionally, this area is full of a lot of caverns. The Padmasambhava cave, which is located on the outskirts of Langtang Lirung’s eastern base Camp, is the most significant one. Pilgrims can walk from the Kyanjin monastery to this sacred site in two hours (Gumba). The locals who live here are of Tibetan descent.
