The Langtang Helicopter Tour provides a breathtaking perspective of the Langtang valley. The helicopter will take you above the enticing Tamang dwellings that dangle over the mountains, resulting in the magnificent scenery.

Due to its remote location away from populated areas and cities, the entire Langtang region is peaceful and concealed. The trekking routes and the lush green slopes of the Langtang valley will be readily apparent.

Furthermore, while passing above the Langtang National Park, one may encounter endangered Himalayan wildlife such as the Red Panda, Danfe, Himalayan deer, and snow leopard. The slumbering shadow of Tserko RI and Kanjin Ri encompasses the entire region, offering an outstanding panorama and contributing magnificence to the Langtang valley.

Explore the enlightening Kyanjin Gompa

Most visitors visit Langtang to admire Kyanjin Gompa, the region’s most famous landmark. Crossing the lovely Buddhist villages, the Kanjin Gompa will greet you at the height of around 3,860m.

There will be a beautiful monastery here, symbolizing the incredible religious heritage of Buddhism and the Tibetian-Nepalese culture. The view of the Himalayas and the lovely Langtang valley is visible here. Additionally, one may trek to the Tserko RI and Kyanjin RI (4,770m) (4,980m).

The snowy ambiance in the little calm of the Tamang villages conveys an authentic atmosphere. Along with the stunning sculptures and statues surrounding the temples, prayer flags are an artistic expression of the Tamang people’s connection to Tibetan-Nepalese culture.
