Horse Riding Trek to Langtang Valley with Children, 11 Days

Days: 11 / Difficulty: 3 of 5 (Moderate to strenuous)

Being one of the most popular trekking trails in Nepal, Langtang Valley offers a mix of snow-clad Himalayas, lush hills, and various rivers and rivulets along with several ethnic villages of the Tamang community. Horseback Riding Trek to Langtang Valley with Children is specially designed for families with children who wish to trek in Nepal but are short on time and are also concerned about their children's inability to trek for long hours. 

The trekking trail to Langtang valley follows Langtang Khola almost throughout the trek. Most of the trekking goes through the densely forested path filled with rhododendrons, oak, maple, bamboo, and pine trees. You trek through Langtang National Park where you may encounter different animals like red panda, Himalayan black bear, grey Langur monkey, leopard, Ghoral, and various species of birds. The trail is also equally rich in culture which unravels as you pass through several traditional settlements, monasteries, Chortens, and Mani walls. One of the highlights of this trek is Kyanjin Gompa, an ancient Buddhist monastery surrounded by the high Himalayas. The villages of Langtang valley are mostly inhabited by Tamang people visiting which the children get to experience and understand the culture and tradition of the Himalayan foothills. The majestic view of different mountain peaks like Langtang Lirung (7246m), Naya Kang (5844m), Dorje Lakpa (6966m), Langshisha Ri (6560m), and so on is another feature of this trek that the children will surely enjoy.
