Unlike the Everest and Annapurna regions, Langtang is located closer to Kathmandu and hence easily accessible. The region protected by Langtang National Park since 1971, has been now a major tourist destination because of the range of treks it offers. The home to a valley and a mountain of the same name the conservation area has five climatic zones, and a diverse mix of flora and fauna. Scenic mountain views and insight into the cultures and practices of its native Tamangs are also the major highlights of the trek. The sacred Gosainkunda Lake, the Kyanjin Gompa and Singa Gompa, the historic Rasuwa Gadi fort and Tatopani (natural hot springs) are other highlights of the trek
Kyanjin Ri 4350m was additional highlight and set goal for Ms. Deborah and Mr. Loren Sorensen during their trek to Langtang Region this autumn. Sorensens from Denmark through our exclusive country partner Kipling Travel enjoyed the 3600 view of Langtang Himalayan region dominated by Langtang Lirung 7246m from the summit of Kyanjin Ri.
Sorensens had to say something on trek and Explore Himalaya’s staffs before they departed back home.
“Nita, our tour officer was organized and she received us right on time. Amar was enthusiastic and he briefed us very well on trek. Our trek guide Merman was great. Every moment of the trip has been special and trek part to Kyanjin Ri has been the best of the bests. We had a great time.”
We find it very important that our travelling contributes to the preservation of Nepal’s fragile and beautiful nature. We encourage Kipling Travels and Explore Himalaya to start working with different tea-houses / lodges and hotels on sustainability initiatives- like waste recycling, solar heating etc.
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
