our client says Reise ins geheimnisvolle Königreich Mustang Am 1. Mai 2010 machten sich, 7 abenteuerhungrige Schweizer auf den langen Flug nach Kathmandu. Einerseits mit grosser Vorfreude und andererseits mit einem etwas mulmigen Gefühl, da in ganz Nepal einen Generalstreik vorausgesagt wurde und wir nicht wussten ob unser Trekking ins Königreich Mustang wirklich zustande kommen wird. Doch am Flughafen in Kathmandu wurden wir schon von Yagya unserem Trekkinguide vor Ort freundlich empfangen und er cauffierte uns mit dem Bus das erste Mal durch die Strassen von Kathmandu in unser Hotel im Stadtteil Tamel. Durch den Streik waren alle Einheimischen auf der Strasse, überall wurden Parolen gerufen , rote Flaggen und T-Shirt getragen, es herrschte ein richtiges Chaos und das richtige Leben stand völlig still, ausser wir als Touristen wurden noch in der Stadt herumgefahren. Müde und froh sind wir dann im Hotel angekommen und genossen ein par Stunden für uns bis wir uns dann gemeinsam zum Abendessen trafen. read more View All

The Langtang Valley lies to the North of Kathmandu on the borders of Tibet. It is a beautiful alpine region containing some prime examples of temperate and sub alpine vegetation. Langtang is one of the most accessible trekking regions in Nepal but nevertheless offers a wilderness experience without the sometimes arduous travel involved.

Whilst the area cannot boast any of the Himalayan giants, the scenery is every bit as spectacular as that found on the more popular trails. Because it is far less frequented, many people who travel this region speak of a real sense of adventure.

A visit to the Langtang valley offers an opportunity to explore Tamang culture and villages, climb small peaks and visit glaciers at a more comfortable altitude than other trekking regions. A day to rest at Kyangjin Gompa allows time for exploration of the extensive glacier system in the higher valley and small peak climbs. 
Treks can be varied, by either a return to the road head at Dhunche for the journey back to Kathmandu or alternatively extending a further six days to trek via the Sacred Lakes of Gosainkund(4300 meters) and the Helambu region. Helambu region lies to the south of the Langtang region; it is a lush area to the north of Kathmandu inhabited by Sherpa and Tamang people. The Sherpas of this region are very different in their practices from their cousins in the Everest region. The region contains some beautiful forests and very interesting villages. This area is easily accessible from Kathmandu and is ideal for people with less time.
 
The Langtang Himal is a region north part of Kathmandu valley and it lies just south of Tibetan border. The Langtang valley is surrounded by high peaks of great appeal. It has become famous ever since the British mountaineer Bill Tilman described it as the most beautiful valley in the world. The highest peak in this area is Shisapangma or Gosaithan 8027m in Tibet. The course from the Langtang valley to Gosaikund is full of diversity and it is attracting many tourists. The Langtang valley is also known as the treasure house of Alpine plants. The whole valley is covered with flowers during the summer. This high and isolated region is inhabited by Tamangs whose religious practices, language and dress are much more similar to Tibetan.
