A Geographical Profile:

Langtang valley is situated directly north of Kathmandu in the Central Himalayan Region. This area was declared a National Park in 1976 and remains the second largest Park in Nepal, covering 1710 that lies on mountainous terrain south of the Nepal-Tibet (China) border.

Within its boundaries are some 45 villages, with the main objective of the park being to preserve the regions by allowing the local folks to follow the traditional land use practices which are compatible with resource protection.

The area offers a range of cultures with the main three ethnic peoples living in the area. They are the Tamangs, Yolmus and Bhotias who originated from Tibet in the past 500 years till the mid 20th century. In a southern section of the park lies a small area of sub-tropical chestnut forest, along with unique Sal forest. The hill forests (2000-2,600m) across the southern slopes of the park consist of Chir Pine, Rhododendron, Nepalese Alder and Oak. Moving north and higher, the Montane zone (2,600-3000m) are mainly Mountain Oak, fading to Silver Fir, Hemlock and Larch in the lower sub-alpine zone (3000-3,6000m); throughout these zones, several species of Rhododendron trees form a twisted and colorful under story, continuing higher to tree line Birch and Fir forest that are the last to survive. It is here at 3,600-4000m that Juniper and Rhododendrons shrubs slowly dissolve into the expansive alpine grassland meadows. Here, the elusive snow leopard is still thought to comb the alpine heights for prey. The park is also well known for its populations of red panda, Himalayan black bear, wild dog, Himalayan thar, ghoral (mountain antelope) and more than 250 species of birds.

Langtang at present is the third most popular trekking area in Nepal after Annapurna and the Everest region. This fabulous trek, a perfect combination of moderate and vigorous walking lead to the high alpine valley in the backdrop of high snow capped peaks, & in the spring, this area literally becomes a natural garden of wild colorful flowers. Become a pilgrim, and head to the shimmering lakes at Gosainkund.  There, you will find peace and serenity alongside Buddhist and Hindu pilgrims.  It is but natural that this area is called sacred, affording views extending all the way to the Annapurnas.  Cross Laurabina Yak La Pass at (4,615m), adjoining the Gosainkund and Helambu regions.  At this higher altitude, the terrain transforms to arid alpine above tree line and the villages get sparser.  Descend on steep mountain trails high above the valley.  Traditionally, Langtang area is one of the most culturally wealthy regions in Nepal. Prominent to this region north of Kathmandu, are peoples of Tibetan origin found on these Tamang Heritage Trails.
