The highlights are many; cultural aspects, the daily life of Tamang people; the ethnic group residing in Langtang valley, traditional villages, gompas, monasteries and the holy Gosaikunda Lake, an important pilgrimage destination for Hindus. The landscapes are highly varied from dense rhododendron & pine forest, to snow covered peaks and glaciers.

LANGTANG – our recommended area of exploration
Why Langtang national park?
 

Located north of Kathmandu valley, bordering Tibet, Langtang national park was the first Himalayan national park of Nepal. Langtang is rich in breathtaking views, alpine forest and traditional culture. The variety of climate zones that are found within the park allows you to experience subtropical forest to rough rugged landscapes. wedged between 6000 – 7000 meters high peaks.
 
It is a less visited area so it offers a gentle pace and authentic culture with heartwarming hospitality among stunning views. Even though the area is less visited then Annapurna and Everest region there is tea houses available along the whole route which simplifies regarding accommodation and food. The best thing of all is to be in the presence of such heartwarming people, truly experience their culture. Langtang region suffered major loss from the earthquake in 2015, and need trekkers to visit their tea houses now more then ever to enable them to rebuild their homes and livelihoods. Prepare yourself for a truly spectacular experience, humbled by human spirit and overwhelmed by mother nature.

Within Langtang we will make our way up to Kyanjin gompa, with some optional peaks from there, and further on to Gosaikunda lake. For our route see our overview under upcoming yogatreks, or contact us to see more detailed information in our catalog.
