Episode 012 – Lazing in Langtang Valley

Lazing in Langtang Valley

Join us as we relive our memories of a week-long trek in the Langtang Valley, Nepal. From sighting wild bee hives, bears and Himalayan flowers to making friends over ginger honey lemon tea, momos, and apple pies, this was a trip worth the pain!

In this episode, listen to anecdotes and rants about a short adventure on the fringes of Langtang National Park. Trace our journey from Kathmandu (1,400 m) to Kyanjin Ri (4,400 m) hopping between tea houses and charming mountain villages perched on a riverside trail along Langtang Khola.
