Introduction:

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. Mountainous terrain south of Nepal-Tibet (China) border.

Within its boundaries are some 45 villages, with the main objective of the park is to preserve the regions by allowing the local 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 are the Tamangs, Yolmus and Bhotias who have originated from Tibet in the past 500 years till the mid 20th centaury. 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. Moving north and higher, the Montana zone (2,600-3000m) are mainly Mountain Oak, fading to Silver Fir, Hemlock and Larch in the lower sub-alpine zone (3000-3,6000m); throughout these zones, several species of Rhododendron trees form a twisted and colorful under story, continuing higher to tree line Birch and Fir forest are the last to survive. It is here at 3,600-4000m that Juniper and Rhododendrons shrubs slowly dissolve into the expansive alpine grassland meadows. Here the elusive snow leopard is still thought to comb the alpine heights for prey. The park is also well known for its populations of red panda, Himalayan black bear, wild dog, Himalayan thar, goral (mountain antelope) and more than 250 species of birds.

Above the tree line, the valley opens up into a classical, glacial ‘U’ shape, bounded to the north by the impressive Langtang Himal, beyond which lies Tibet. The major peaks include Ghengu Liru(Langtang II 6571m/21,560ft), Langtang Lirung (7,425m/23,765ft) Kimshun (6,745m/22,137ft) and Shalbachum(6,918m/22,699ft) to the south, the Chimsedang Lekh forms a ridge of peaks which includes Naya-Kanga 5,846m and Gangchempo, Tilman’s beautiful Fluted Peak. Beyond it extends to the Jugal Himal, terminating in Dorje Lakpa (6,980m/22,929ft). To the east the upper meadows of the Langtang end in a massive mountain wall, forming the frontier with Tibet.

Langtang at present is the third popular trekking area in Nepal after Annapurna and Everest region.
