Langtang has all the features and attractions that any world class trekking trail commands. But what makes it so different and unique is that thankfully it is one of the least explored and visited trekking areas in Nepal. It has become famous ever since the British mountaineer Bill Tilman described it as ‘the most beautiful valley in the world’.
Langtang valley is also known as the ''treasure house'' of Alpine plants and is one of true wild outback of Nepal. The whole valley is carpeted with an array of beautiful flowers during the summer, a specter that should never be missed. Its flourishing alpine vegetation and dense forests of rhododendrons and oaks is a prime habitat for many elusive and rare wild animals including Red Panda and Snow Leopard. There are sacred lakes such as Gosainkunda, natural hot springs, and high mountain passes that make for an exhilarating adventure. You will be able to appreciate the unique culture and lifestyle Tamang community who have close cultural and social affinity with Tibetans.
One of the most important features of the Lantang region is its abundant snow glaciers. It is one of the richest regions in Nepal for glaciers, as it is home to as many as 70 glacier basins. These glaciers are integral part of the Langtang Himalayan ranges. Further, the trekking trails offer up-close and personal views of high peaks such as Shisapangma and Langtang.
Langtang is one of the nearest destinations from Kathmandu, an easily accessible trekking region that invites you on an alluring journey to explore the natural wonders of Nepal.
