Langtang is a narrow valley bordering to Tibet but still far away from Tibetan Plateau. In Langtang you will discover the heavenly beauty of the land with its rushing rivers and lush forests. A great influence of Tibet can be experienced in this valley. Tamang tribe is the main settler in this region. Langtang is protected as a national park and it has a number of high peaks which attracts lots of tourist. Langtang is the second largest National Park of Nepal and it is also one of the least crowded trekking destinations. There are around 4500 people who lives inside the park and more dependent in timber and firewood. The majority of people stays here are Tamangs. The park containes a wide variety of climatic zones, trees like Oak, Maple, Pine, Rhododendron. It also has animals like Himalayan black bear, Himalayan tahr (goat), Rhesus monkeys, Red Pandas.
This trekking trail gives you the oppurtunity to explore the villages, climb small peaks, visit glaciers at comfortably low elevations. This trek is only for 7-8 days but you will see more life here.
