The Langtang Valley Trek 12 Days

  • Trek up into the Langtang valley has to be one of the most rewarding of the short treks available anywhere in Nepal. The east west running valley is the site of some spectacular alpine scenery as well as being a great place to meet the distinctive people of the Tamang community.The valley itself is a rich alpine valley that forms part of the Central Nepal Himalaya, north of Kathmandu it was once one of Nepal’s Hidden Valleys.A journey up into the Langtang Valley to the high glaciers is very special indeed. The region has fewer tourists than either the Annapurna or Everest regions and offers a wilderness experience and an opportunity to experience the culture of the local Tamang people, the main ethnic group. The Tamang people follow a lot of Tibetan practices as only twenty miles separates them from Tibet border. There are some very interesting local settlements and a wide variety of wildlife and bird life along the way. Trekking into the high valley takes you almost to the base of The Nepal Himalaya giving you a “high mountain feel” without the trek being too hard. There is also an extensive glacier system in the valley's upper reaches to be explored

Ghorapni Poon Hill Trek 12 Days

The trek to Ghorepani - Poon Hill (Pun Hill) is the most popular short trek in Nepal and highly recommended, it can be completerd in as little as five days although many people take their time and extend the trek to take in other settlements on the way.The benefit of this particular trek is on leaving from Pokhara within an hour or twos drive you are trekking and getting some spectacular views of the mountains.Walking through charming villages,mainly inhabited by the Gurung & Magar ethnic groups. There are many dense and very colourful rhododendron forests in the spring. It is a good area for birds and deep sub-tropical valleys. If that were not enough, the magnificent Annapurnas and Machhapuchhare (Fishtail Peak) in particular, dominate the skyline.
A highlight of this trip is to climb up early in the morning from Ghorapani to Poon Hill for some fantastic views of both the Dhaulagiri range and the Annapurna range. Dhaulagiri (8,167m) Annapurna (8,091m) along with many other peaks at sunrise is an unforgetable experience.Because it is a popular trek, the facilities found on the trail are good with hot showers and great food.
