Langtang National Park was the 3rd most renowned trekking province in Nepal after the Everest and Annapurna provinces. This changed significantly following the destructive earthquake that struck Nepal in 2015, 28th of April. Just a few days following the shattering earthquake the already smashed village of Langtang was struck by a massive landslide and got totally swept away. And just like that, the largest village of the area ceased to subsist.

There is been so many lies and rumors online on the globe’s traveling forums & guidebooks, that since the destructive earthquake occurred the gorge is closed for hiking. Let me tell you that that is absolutely rubbish and the Langtang trek is open for hiking.

The natives that still exist in the gorge were nearly begging us to tell other travelers we met that Langtang Valley is 100 percent open for business. The locals state that the only way they can persist their life is if travelers come back to the valley. And we did meet few other trekkers on the route apart from a few porters carrying building materials up the gorge.

Langtang Trekking:

Trust me the scenery here in the Langtang Valley is absolutely awe-inspiring and you can experience the trek in a more adventurous way as the region is visited by a lesser number of travelers. To the west side of Langtang is Ganesh Himal with a range of 6000-7000 meters. The Helambu and Gosainkund province lies to its south; these can be merged with Langtang to extend your trek from 7 to 21 days. The province was elected Nepal’s 1st Himalayan National Park in the year of 1971.
It’s inhabited by Sherpa and Tamang people whose spiritual practices, dress and languages are pretty identical to Tibetans. The woodlands in the province have temperate & sub-alpine flora. Wildlife encompasses deer, migratory birds, pika, monkey and tahr. Spring to autumn is the most ideal time to trek in the Langtang region. A majority of the trekking trails in Langtang and Helambu are well-catered with teahouses making independent hiking rather feasible. A trip to the Langtang valley also offers you a chance to discover the Tamang villages, ascend small summits and to explore glaciers at a more comfortable height than other trekking provinces.
