The Langtang valley trek was the third most popular trekking region after Everest and Annapurna until the 2015 earthquake drastically affected the region. After some reconstruction and stabilisation of the trekking routes, the Langtang National Park is open again for trekking. The local community needs the tourism and this trek is a unique opportunity to see a region in the process of rebuilding after such devastation.
Good To Know
Asian Trekking is a Nepali expedition operating company established 36 years ago. According to Paragraph 26 of the Tourism Act (2035), no foreign expedition teams or companies are allowed to provide expedition services in Nepal directly and any foreign company must work through a Nepali company licensed by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Government of Nepal. As such, Nepali companies are the ones that provide all the legal, administrative, logistical, guiding and support services in Nepal, while also being legally responsible for the safe and responsible conduct of the expeditions. Booking through foreign expedition companies naturally makes the cost to the customer higher due to the extra layer of administration and profit margins, without necessarily adding any extra value.
