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.

Kate Renee Sciacca, United States The Langtang valley Trek is one of the most relaxed and amazing trekking journeys in Nepal. I was lucky enough to be in the company of Nepal Hiking Team when I did the trek, and their organization of my trip to the valley of Langtang was filled with a very smooth and problem-free experience. From the first pick-up at the airport till the end of the trip, I was greeted and subjected to the best services that I could have asked for. My guide was very professional and concise, his experience in trekking and handling the customers and the people while trekking really shone through. My porter was also the most hard-working and diligent person that carried the heavy bags from one location to the next without delay. I was accommodated at comfortable guesthouses and the meals that I was given were also fine. The villages around the valley were the most beautiful and I liked hiking through them. I was lucky enough to have clear views of the mountain as well. It was a wonderful trek and one that I immensely enjoyed. I loved every moment of the trek and I really recommend everyone to go with Nepal Hiking Team because of their genuine care and concern for their customers. Also, Langtang Valley Trek is also recommended because it is a very beautiful and easy trekking journey with some very beautiful mountains and sceneries. Thank You Nepal Hiking Team for a beautiful experience in Nepal!
Hareth Alsaadi, Phillipines I went for Everest base camp trip by mid-Dec 2021. I was a little worried as I never went trekking in my entire life.. however, i did a lot of research and came across Nepal Hiking Team so I decided after much thought to go with them Initially, I was in contact with Ganga the CEO of the company... i was highly satisfied with his interaction and communication with me right from the beginning.. i had so many questions and concerns regarding the trip and he was able to guide me and answer me all my inquiries... the on-boarding process was smooth and easy.. when i arrived in Nepal I found everything ready starting from the person picking me up from the airport, the hotel, some equipment for the trek, full introductory meeting on what to expect from the journey, all ground transportation, and even before i left Nepal after the trek.. a PCR staff was provided and came to my hotel... As for my trekking guide Prakash. i am truly happy that i had him as my guide.. a very spectacular human being.. he was more than a guide.. he was a great companion as well.. he ensured that i was having a good time.. continuously shared his expertise of mountains, Sherpa people, and Nepalese culture.. he always went the extra mile to support me... even at days when it was tough for me to continue due to altitude sickness.. he encouraged me and inspired me not to give up on this lifetime journey.. he always puts health and safety first.. Despite all the challenges of Everest Base Camp trek.. but i am very glad i did it... and i did it with an excellent group of people.. Nepal Hiking Team.. i highly recommend them for anyone intends to go trekking in Nepal. Read this review on trip advisor (click here)
Peter, United States of America My friend and I recently spent 2 weeks in Nepal, guided by the Nepal Hiking Team. Our original trek was canceled by an international company,  and the Nepal Hiking Team stepped in flawlessly. Ganga answered all of our questions, had our safety as his top concern always, was flexible, and was gracious with his hospitality. From Kathmandu, Pokhara, to the various tea villages, all the way to ABC, our Nepal Hiking Team was phenomenal. Our guide Arjun and porter Prem were first class, helping us navigate and learn about the terrain, giving us sage advice, and also making sure we had a great time (thanks for the wine!). I felt truly connected with them and it was hard to leave! A massive thank you to the entire team. Let's summit one of those monsters together soon!
William Belue, USA Nepal Hiking was incredible starting with the airport pick up all the way to drop off at the end of the trip. I had a scenario in which the airline lost my luggage and NHT arrange for my boots to be delivered via helicopter. This alone speaks to the level of care they provide their clients. Our guide, Bal, was one of the most knowledgeable people I’ve had the opportunity to meet and his attention to detail truly made this experience for me. The accommodations, food, gear, etc all blew my expectations out of the water. If you are looking for a guided Nepal experience, please look no further. I met other trekkers along my journey who were paying more and receiving less. This trip was a surprise birthday present and I am already planning my next trip back.

Ahmed, USA Joined recently for an Everest Base Camp tour and it was simply spectacular! The team was well equipped with all logistics and planning and Ganga did a fantastic job with communication before and during the trip too. As for the trip itself, it far exceeded expectations as we got lucky with great clear weather and really enjoying our hiking. Our tour guide Bal was excellent as he had a lot of previous experience, very knowledgeable, friendly, and a fun person. The accommodations and food were good too. Overall I would highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team to others. Note: Read this review on Tripadvisor (Click here)
