Langtang yoga trek is a complete blend of spiritual and natural adventure with yoga retreats that promotes inner peace and strength to its trekkers. The trek starting from Shyabru Besi leads you to one of the most dramatic trekking destinations of Nepal. The valley of glacial masses, Langtang valley situated 19 miles away from the capital city has comfortable tea house, natural trails and offers a captivating and eye-popping panorama of snow-capped mountains.
The prolific Pine forests dominating the skylines with the vibrant red rhododendron forest of National park energies your soul and cheer you on for your journey ahead. Walk past the ethnic village of Langtang as you cross Ghodatabela and pastureland making your way to the oldest monastery of Langtang region, Kyanjin Gompa. Try some authentic Nepali cheese in Kyanjin Gompa before you make your way to the final destination of this trek. Elevating at the height of 4773m, Kyanjin Ri is the highest point of this trek which offers tempting views of the snow-topped pinnacles. Surround yourself with the most alluring views of Langtang Lirung (7227m), Langtang II (6596m), Yala Peak (5500m) and Dorje Lakpa (6966m) as you summit Kyanjin Ri in 7th day of your trek. The best time to do this trek is spring (May-June) and autumn (September to December).
The 10 days guided trek to Langtang valley with yoga retreats is a moderate trekking experience in the Himalayas with morning and evening yoga sessions added to the list. The yoga sessions in between the trek allow your body to rejuvenate, release pain and stay energetic throughout the journey. Join Himalayan Recreation Treks for an unforgettable trekking experience into the Himalayas. We are keen on providing the best quality services to our valued guests.
Narayan Baniya (nature pathfinder) and Sumir Gyawali (yoga teacher) guide me in this adventure. Actually they manage perfectly my short time and all the noisy burocratic thinks like documents or Covid control. They makes me feel safely and had care of me since the moment I reserved .. now I’m at home and still feel the power of their experience, friendship and good nature. They makes me “enter” in the Nepali lifestyle, from metropolitan Kathmandu until the top of the mountain were the vibes are soo deep. Their good vibes are compatible with all, Sumir had a clinical yogi eye and Narayan the calm you need to arrive over the clouds.. it was like a day dreaming and I never forget this experience out of time. Thank you Antonio
A great & well organised experience. I highly recommend Himalayan recreation to anyone planning to trek to the Annapurna Basecamp. Everything from start to finish was all taken care of, taking away all of the stress of organisation so that I could focus on enjoying the trek.
Ashok was very responsive on whatsapp at all times and was able to adapt the tour when circumstances changed. For example, when my flight to Pokhara was cancelled, Ashok arranged for a friendly driver to take me all the way there by private car instead (I did have to wait 1.5 hours for the driver, but traffic in Kathmandu is difficult). My guide Santosh and porter Bal were very friendly and accommodating and were good company during the trek. They have the English skills required to answer the majority of questions, particularly relating to the trek. Overall, a very good experience.
The trek itself is very beautiful. It has everything, including rural villages with rice terraces, bamboo forests, and epic mountains. The accommodation is basic but everything you need for a trek (much better than camping). The weather forecast is inaccurate - I enjoyed decent weather despite the forecast being constant rain/thunder. I found the difficulty to be much easier than others state, and could have completed the trek in 5-6 days. Almost anyone with a decent level of fitness would be able to complete this trek (adjusting the duration to accommodate).
The Annupurna Poon Hill Trip is a lovely trek through the lower elevations of the Annupurna range of the Himalayas. Starting from Pokhara, a 90 minute drive in a taxi drops us off at the beginning of the trek and then goes up from there. My guide, Raj, was absolutely awesome and provided a lot of great information about the area during our trek over the several days that this trek takes place. The second day of the climb takes us to the small town of Ghorepani, and then an early climb the next morning to Poon Hill.
I went on this trip in the 2nd year of the virus. According to my guide, the number of travelers was still way down from pre-pandemic years. So, in one way, it is a great time to travel since you will have most of the trails to yourself. The tea houses are also pretty empty. The negative side to this is that there are limited menu items and several places didn't have WiFi.
There are a few recommendations I would make about this trip. The first is the ride from Kathmandu to Pokhara. I took the bus and regretted it about halfway there. While the distance is only 200 km, it took about 8 hours on the bus. If I were to do this again, I would have opted for a 30 minute flight. It costs more, but is so worth it.
Second, make sure you bring toilet paper with you on the trek. The tea houses I stayed in during my trek didn't have any. So, bringing a roll of your own is a huge help. And speaking of bathrooms, most of the toilets along the route are not the western style sit-down toilets. Rather they are the hole in the grounds. So, make sure to use the bathroom before leaving the tea house since the next western-style toilet isn't until the next guest house, which could be a half day hike away.
Finally, if you have time after the trek, spend an extra day in Pokhara. It is much more interesting than Kathmandu.
Otherwise, the trek was wonderful and the folks at Himalayan Recreation did a great job in staying in touch, picking me up at the airport when I arrived in Nepal, and provided excellent service all the way through.
This trip was the first we took with those guys. It was very nice, guide was interesting and gave us a lot information about Bhaktapur and Nepal itself.
After they arranged few more trips for us. First was Chitwan national park and jeep safari. After Pokhara and paragliding. And then return to Kathmandu. It was very helpful to have someone local there who can arrange flights, pick ups, all the activities and return wherever needed.
We didn't have more time, but all the time we had, they managed to organize for us, without stressing or worrying.
I truly recommend them, because they are very responsible and helpful for any situation. I firstly met them in Kathmandu for our first trip and they helped us with all the others.
