Langtang Heli trek is suitable for those travelers who wanted to avoid the long drive on the rough road and more hours walking in rocky trails of Langtang valley. The helicopter flies right into the scenic part of the valley from where the walking is easier. In a just few days from Kathmandu, one can enjoy the Himalayan view from Kyanjin Gompa, climb Kyanjin Ri (4,773 m / 15,655 ft) or Cherko Ri (almost 5,000 m). With couple of extra days, avid trekkers can also climb the Yala peak 5520 m.
Langtang valley is the closest trekking route from Kathmandu. The region is less travelled and sustains authentic Tibetan Buddhist Sherpa culture just next to the Tibetan border. However, the drive to the trailhead is tedious and the first few days of walking is tiring with ups and downs on the rugged trail. On our way trekking to Kyanjin, yak pastures and quaint villages can be encountered en- route. Kyanjin Gompa and government-operated cheese factory makes it an insightful sightseeing tour.
