The Langtang Trek was long a favored area for hiking and ranked only behind Everest and Annapurna in terms of popularity. The tragic 2015 earthquake had a devastating economic effect on the community, with many forced to leave, yet in the intervening years many have come back, the tea houses have been rebuilt anew, and life has slowly returned to something resembling the past, though tourism to the area has yet to approach earlier figures. Visitors choosing to make the journey will thus not only be able to avail themselves of one of Nepal’s most beautiful treks in the same manner as before, but can help support the wonderfully welcome and hospitable Tamang people of Langtang Valley as they attempt to rebuild their livelihoods in the wake of the earthquake.
