Trip Overview of Langtang Heli Trek

Langtang Heli trek is suitable for those travellers 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 a 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.

In the upper part of the Langtang valley, there are snows Ridges spanning angry torrents, high passes enveloped in mist tiny lakes of crystalline brightness and glaciated mountain giants. Mighty Langtang Lirung (7246m) dominates the valley to the north; Gang Chhenpo (6388m) and the trekking peak of Naya Kangri (5846m) lie in the south, and Dorje Lakpa (6966m) protects the east of the valley. Langtang valley expedition area is inhabited by Tamang whose religious practices, language, and the unique dress is worth enjoying. According to a legend, a lama following a runaway yak discovered the valley, hence the name -Lang (Tibetan name for YAK), Tang (more currently “Dhang” means to follow) was given. A variety of sights including Buddhist monasteries, a cheese factory, and yaks make this trek an exciting one. There are good opportunities for moderate climbing excursions here allowing some extra days for exploration of the extensive glacier system in beautiful Langtang valley.

Langtang Heli trek offers an opportunity to explore villages, to climb small peaks and to visit glaciers and sacred lakes at a comfortably low elevation. We will take a helicopter flight from Tribhuvan International Airport Kathmandu and lands at Ghore Tabla and start our journey from here.
