Langtang Region is the nearest trekking destination from Kathmandu Valley. The place is spectacularly rich in vegetations, wildlife, people and mountains. However, callous earthquake of 2015 tolled many lives and shattered many houses. Therefore, for brief period of time the trekking region was closed. Now it is open for all to relish. You can see by yourself how intrepid people of Langtang have risen again. Their spirit of serving trekkers couldn’t get defeated by earthquake and Langtang Lirung glacier outbreak. Aster Treks is proud to present Langtang Valley Trek for its valued clients. We feel proud because this place needs visitors and we have to grace this opportunity. Enjoy the nature, mountains and culture as well as do some charitable tasks in Langtang.
