Langtang Valley is one of the nearest trekking route in Nepal. Situated North of Kathmandu valley near the Tibetan border, it is the most easily accessible highland sanctuary from the capital. Langtang covers 1,710 sq. km. forming the upper catchments areas of two of Nepal's largest river systems - the Trishuli and Koshi. There is great latitudinal variation, starting at 1,500 m. and ascending to the top of Mt. Langtang Lirung at 7,234 m. As a result the park has immense ecological diversity. Some of the most attractive areas of the park include the Langtang Valley, the holy lakes at Gosainkund, and the forested hillsides above the village of Helambu.The deep gorges of Bhote Koshi and Langtang Khola are thickly forested with rhododendron, oak, maple and alder trees. The stretch of forest around Ghode Tabela in the lower Langtang Valley and below the Gosainkund Lakes is inhabited by the very shy red panda, a rare and threatened symbol of a healthy Himalayan ecosystem. Other animals, common to these forests are yellow throated martens, wild boar, Himalayan black bear, Ghorel (Mountain Goat), grey langur monkey and leopard. The rare Himalayan honey guide has been sighted here and the park is also the home for impeyan (National Bird), Tragopan and kalij pheasants among others. Larch, a rare deciduous conifer, is also found in the forest of lower Langtang Valley. Further up in the higher valleys, Himalayan tahr, musk deer and snow leopard can be found. The upper Langtang Valley is one of the few known breeding grounds of the ibis bills besides the Tibetan snow cock and snow partridge.
Like other Himalayan nature parks, Langtang has to be explored on foot. There are several possible trails to choose from depending on preference and time available. The Langtang Valley is easily approached from Dhunche town and park office, which is a day's drive from Kathmandu. The upper reaches of Langtang can be reached in four days of easy walking; however, it is advisable to spend a few days around the forest at Ghoda Tabela to watch for the red panda. Once above Langtang village and the monastery at Kyangjin, visitors can explore the high valley of Langshisa Yala peak and Tsergo, Ri. These and other villages of upper Langtang are inhabited by people of Tibetan descent whereas the villagers of Dhunche, Bharkhu and Syabru further down are home to the Tamangs of Nepal's middle hills.
It includes peaks such as the Langtang Himal, Dorje Lakpa, Langshisa, and Ganja La pass. Yala peak stands out and Tibetan ranges can be seen from its summit. Most trekkers enjoy the panoramic views of the northern Himalayas.
