Langtang Exploratory with Naya Kanga | 5846m – Himalayan peak ascent trek with Tilman’s Col

The Langtang region is the most accessible alpine region from Kathmandu. On clear days you can see the glaciated peaks of Langtang from the Kathmandu valley. It’s a jeep ride to get to the start of a Langtang adventure, no flight required.  On this trip we will climb a semi-technical peak (Naya Kanga), trek in spectacular Langtang area, and explore out to the historical Tilman’s Col.
