The Langtang Valley is a beautiful alpine region situated to the North of Kathmandu bordering Tibet. It is popular due to its snow-covered peaks, a mild climate and friendly and hospitable inhabitants. The area was recognized as Nepal’s first Himalayan National Park in 1971. The land of Tamangs, Langtang is rich in its age-old religious practices, language and costume. A journey to the Langtang valley offers an opportunity to explore the Tamang villages, climb small peaks and visit glaciers.

 

Langtang Valley Trek is one of the popular treks of Langtang region. It is best known for its pristine forests, high-elevation meadows of wild sheep, Tibetan-like culture and lovely mountain views. The name "Langtang" is derived from the Tibetan word "Lang" and "Tang", meaning "following ox". There is a story related with the name.

Dominated by Tamang culture, the land of Tamangs is rich in alpine flora and fauna.
