Trip Overview

The Langtang Valley Heli Trek lets you experience the riches of the beautiful Langtang Valley with the added thrill of an amazingly thrilling Helicopter ride. Also known as “the Valley of Glaciers,” the Langtang Valley lies in the lap of the Himalayas of Nepal to the north of the Kathmandu Valley bordering Tibet. Because of its proximity to Tibet, the valley’s inhabitants follow the ancient Tibetan Buddhist customs, and trekking here presents one of the most splendid opportunities to experience the people’s unique culture and tradition while trekking through ethnic villages. The valley, also being under the protection of the Langtang National Park, is blessed with beautiful and verdant alpine woods home to many endangered species of animals.

The Langtang Valley Heli Trek perfectly combines both aspects of trekking and the helicopter ride to present to you an experience unlike anything else! Trek along the beautiful landscape and go through many ethnic villages of the region while encountering many small monasteries and gumbas that lien the terrain. Revel yourself in the distant views and sights of the mountain peaks as they make up the tapestry set beguilingly against the valley. The silver mountains of the Langtang Himalayan range contrast spectacularly against the green and brown terrain of the region and provide one of the most spectacular sights while trekking.

Start the trek from Kathmandu with a drive to Syabru Bensi, all the while enjoying the countryside and the fleeting views of pasturelands and terrace farms wet with rice and mustard plantations. Then visit famed places of the Langtang region like the Lama Hotel and the popular Langtang village. Pay a visit to the famous Cheese factory of the area and trek to the holy Kyanjin Gompa. You can also enjoy a bite of the delicious cheese from the factory, which is made from yak milk.

The Mani-stone walls and the colorful prayers flags along the trekking trail present the whole experience with a feel of distant isolation and add a religious nuance to the journey. The monastery, located atop a hill, provides impressive views of the landscape and the mountains like the Langtang Lirung, the Langtang RI, the Dorje Lakpa, and many more. Throughout the trekking journey, views of mountain peaks ornament the terrain. The Langtang Valley Heli Trek then presents you the chance to ride back to the capital on a helicopter, where you can enjoy the verdant green landscape of Langtang from an aerial view. The sight of the mountains from the helicopter is one of the most thrilling affairs! Looking at the Himalayan peaks and the Langtang Valley from a bird’s eye perspective presents spectacular views.

Get to experience Langtang’s rich culture and the people’s traditional customs and practices up close as well. The valley is occupied mainly by people who follow the Tibetan Buddhist culture, and their unique lifestyle in such an isolated region is quite humbling to experience. Catch rare glimpses of animals like the Red Panda and the Musk Deer as you trek through the alpine woodlands of the park.

Catch yourself catching your breath as the view of the cerulean mountains present themselves as colossal walls of ice and snow in the backdrop of the villages and the settlements. The Langtang Valley Heli Trek is an experience that truly captures the best qualities and elements of the region, along with presenting you with a thrilling helicopter ride back to Kathmandu at the end of the trek.
