Langtang is a narrow valley that lies South of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. Langtang Lirung(7246m) dominates the valley to the north, Gangchhenpo(6388m) and Naya Kangri(5846m) lie to the south, and Dorje Lakpa(6966m) protects the east end valley. The Langtang National Park is the fourth national park in Nepal and was established in 1976 as the first Himalaya national park and covers an area of 1,710 km2 in the Nuwakot, Rasuwa and Sindupalchok districts. The high altitude sacred Lake of Gosainkund falls within the park(4300m).
This high and Isolated region is inhabited by Tamangs whose religious practices,language and dress are much more similar to those of Tibet than to the traditions of their cousins in the middle Hills. A visit to the Langtang valley offers an opportunity to explore villages, climb small peaks and visit glaciers at comfortably low elevation. According to legend a Lama following a runway yak discovered the valley. Hence the name LANG is Tibetan for “Yak” and TENG means “to follow”. Langtang is close to Kathmandu and no rush like Everest and Annapurna.
