Langtang Valley

Langtang Valley has traditionally been the third most popular trek in Nepal (after the Annapurna Circuit and Everest Base Camp).  The trail leads up through the higher reaches of the Langtang Valley and offers increasingly spectacular views the higher one goes.

We especially enjoyed the optional non-technical ascents of Kyanjin Ri (4,773 m/15,659 ft) and Tserko Ri (5,033 m/16,500 ft) peaks, which can be done as day hikes from the town of Kyanjin Gompa.  From the peak of Tserko Ri, one can even see over the border into neighboring Tibet.
