Langtang Region Trekking in Nepal
Langtang area lies towards the north of the Kathmandu Valley. The area is picturesque and the view are spectacular. However, this area has fewer visitors. To the west of Langtang is Ganesh Himal ranging between 6000 to 7000 mts. The Gosainkund and Helambu region lies to its south. The Langtang area was designated as Nepal's first Himalayan National Park in 1971 and is inhabited by Tamang and Sherpa people whose religious practices, language and dress are much more similar to those of Tibetan people. The forests in the Langtang region have temperate and sub-alpine vegetation. Most of the trekking routes in Helambu and Langtang are well served with tea-houses and lodges. Access to the Helambu region is easy through Sundarijal, which is only an hour’s drive from Kathmandu valley. Other possible road heads from Kakani as well which is four hours drive from the valley.
A journey to the Langtang valley offers an opportunity to explore the Tamang villages, climb small peaks and visit glaciers at a more comfortable altitude than other trekking regions.
