Langtang Valley Adventure

The solitude and majesty of the Langtang region is the hidden gem of the Himalayas

BOOK

THE EXPERIENCE

This trek is close to our hearts and one we’re very proud to share with you. The Langtang region is home to our incredible guides and the team that Impact Marathon works with on these Bolt-On Adventures. Our Trekking Partners are one of the very few who offer opportunities to female guides, training and empowering young women to explore their own country and educate you on the challenges they face as a woman in Nepal. It's also the region we see directly in front of our Athletes' Village. This region is often ignored by tourists, who favour the much more talked about Annapurna and Everest treks. If you want to get off the beaten path and see how the Nepali people live, this is the trek for you. You’ll walk through forests, visit a monastery in the foothills of the Langtang Himalayan Mountains and see Yaks at work with the Yolmo people of the region. The places, people and views are amazing - and the perfect isolation that comes with visiting this hidden gem is exactly why we have seen this as one of our most popular Bolt-On over the years.
