Langtang Valley and Yala Peak TREK

The Langtang Valley is a spectacular U shaped Valley on the Tibetan border fringed by 6000 and 7000m peaks. With a relatively short walk in, it represents one of the swiftest ways in Nepal to get amongst some really big peaks. Our trip takes advantage of this short walk in to place you amongst high sherpa villages after a few days and then in true HGA style we explore the side valleys and upper Langtang in its winter cloak. The trek is a blend of lodging and tented camping with optional side trips to 5000m and a helicopter ride back. It’s the ideal trek for an Australian end of year family holiday, with heaps of flexibility for a diverse group.
