Join IFMGA-certified mountain guide Pemba on an exotic 11-day hiking trip in the scenic Langtang Valley, in Nepal. The program includes a sightseeing day tour in the city of Kathmandu.
Mar, Apr, May, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec
Langtang is a narrow valley in central Nepal, close to the border with Tibet. It runs east to west between the Himalayas mountain range (8,848m) to the north and other slightly lower snow-capped peaks to the south, within the Langtang National Park (1,710km2). Langtang is one of Nepal’s main trekking regions, although less visited than popular routes like Everest (8,848m) or Annapurna (8,091m).
During our trip, we will take a loop trail starting and ending in Kathmandu (1,400m), Nepal’s capital and largest city, located about 30 kilometers away from the Langtang Valley. Kathmandu is the city with more UNESCO World Heritage Sites, therefore it is a must-see! We will devote the first day of our journey to visit its bazaars, squares, and architectural treasures.
During the following days, we will trek across the valley’s forests and grasslands, enjoying views to a stunning backdrop of high snowy mountains, such as the Langtang Lirung (7,227m). We will climb some of the lower peaks in the area, reaching a maximum elevation of 4,350m, visit glaciers, and discover beautiful ethnic villages. Along the way, we will spend the nights in camping or in typical local teahouses for trekkers.
For your reference, below you will find a detailed itinerary of the program.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
