“One of the world’s most beautiful valleys” – Bill Tilman (British Mountaineer)

It is one of the nearest trekking destinations from Kathmandu and is an unparalleled combination of natural beauty and cultural riches.

It lies about 130 km north of the Kathmandu Valley close to the border with Tibet, China.

The name Langtang comes from Tibetan language, where ‘Lang’ Yak and ‘Teng’ mean – to follow. Yet trekkers can encounter with yak in upper valley of Langtang.

And Langtang is Nepal’s first national park, and lies between the Himalayan range to the north, dominated by Langtang Lirung (7,245 m), the highest peak in the area, and smaller peaks to the south – Chimse Danda (ridge), Ganja La pass (5,122 m), Jugal Himal and Dorje Lakpa (6,989 m).

Trekking in Marvelous Langtang Region welcomes you with grandeur snowy peaks, terraced field, alpine yak pasture, glacial moraines, cascading waterfalls, swinging bridges hanging over raging rivers and festooned with spiritual prayer flags.

Apart from the spectacular scenery, a visit to the area is an opportunity to explore the lifestyle and culture of the Tamangs, whose craftsmanship, language, dress and houses bear their uniqueness.

Langtang is also known for its many glaciers – of which there are more than 70 of varying sizes – and high altitude lakes that include Gosainkunda, Parvatikunda, Bhairavkunda and Dudhkunda.

The forests in the region have temperate and sub-alpine vegetation. Wildlife includes migratory birds, deer, monkeys, tahr and pika.
