What to Expect
Langtang trekking is the most easily accessible highland sanctuary from the capital. It is sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. It is one of the lesser spoiled national parks located on the northern part of Nepal. In many ways this is real pity because Langtang offers pristine forests, rich bird life, monastic culture and above all some spectacular mountain views of the Langtang Himal topped by the shapely Langtang Lirung.

During this trek, you can discover rough history of Tibetan ancestors. In the earlier days they came from Tibet and changed their ethnicity in Tamang in order to get Nepali citizenship. They are descendants from Tibet and have hardly seen any tourists. Their descendants are now Buddhists and living on agriculture and trade. This trek is very famous itself by its tropical culture of local Tamang people, beautiful architecture of the mountain houses and ancient monasteries. The 12-day trip begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi and takes you to the remote region and untouched area that is still away from modern civilization. Next, day you start your trek into the mountainous region passing through Goljung, Gatlang, Tatopani, Thuman, Timure, Briddim, and Lama Hotel, Lang tang Valley and Kyanjin Gompa respectively. Goljung, Gatlang and Langtang are traditional Tamang villages culminating cultural features. The visit to beautiful local Tamang monastery and the holy Parvati Kunda Lake at Gatlang adds delight to your trekking. Throughout your journey you will be rewarded with outstanding views of the Himalayas and get acquainted with the culture and traditions of the Tamangs who live in close vicinity to the mighty Langtang. There is a beautiful view point at Nagthali pass from where you can see the Langtang Himalayan range and Kerung (Tibet). The Tamang heritage valley bids swift mountain streams, pine forest, grassy downs and meadows strewn rugged rock and snow-capped peaks, with daisies and wild primrose.
