Is it safe to trek in Langtang region after Nepal Earthquake, 2015?
The Langtang Valley Trek, one of three trekking trail in Langtang region was hugely affected by Nepal April Earthquake, 2015 due to the shakes dislodging part of the 'hanging glaciers' on Langtang Lirung (7227M) and Langtang II in the Langtang Village. Glaciers picked up more snow and debris and caused more harm than earthquake. 93 miles per hour wind with pressure wave, approx 308 people killed (176 langtang residents, 80 foreigners and 10 army personnel), 100+ bodies never found and about 300 people were evacuated. Locals with the help of Nepal Government, Langtang National Park, lodge owners as well as local groups repaired the damaged trail and the trekking route is open for trekkers from Autumn, 2015.   

Three other trekking trails; Tamang Heritage Trail, Gosainkunda (Frozen Lake) and Helambu (Hyolmo) regions are regular.

The Langtang valley is aptly called "the valley of glaciers". Here, mountains rise soaring towards the sky. The valley offers pine forest, swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow- capped peaks, grassy downs and meadows strewn with daisies and wild primulas. In the upper part of the valley there are snow ridges spanning angry torrents, high passes enveloped in mist, tiny lakes of crystalline brightness and glaciated mountain giants. Our trek begins with a 7 hour drive to Syabru Bensi.
