Langtang Valley Helicopter Trek is probably the closest trekking route from the Kathmandu valley.

The awe-inspiring views of snowcapped mountain ranges from the perspective of bird’s eye view. On the trail you will also observe the countryside lifestyle and the unique cultures of the locals residing in Langtang Region.

However, driving to Langtang region is tedious and first few days of walking is tiring, Helicopter Trek to Langtang Valley will allow trekkers to avoid tedious drive and offers safe and luxurious way to observe the undisturbed beauty of the region. The helicopter lands right in the scenic part of the valley, from where walking is easier and views are incredible.

Trekking to Langtang Valley on foot is also a good idea, as you will observe the thrilling experience in bus and also get to observe the different natural wonders but Helicopter Tour package is an ideal choice for the peoples with short holidays and / or peoples who don’t have interest in walking. Also, oldies and kids can complete the Langtang Valley Heli Tour safely and easily. This could be a good option for your Family Trek in Nepal.
