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 sq.km 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. This trek is worth the go for the holidays of a lifetime…
