Description

Langtang National Park starts 30km north of Kathmandu and extends to the Tibetan border. With a total area of 1710 km2, it includes the sources of two rivers and several peaks around 7000m.

With a large geographical, geological and climatic diversity, this region offers a wide variety of animal and plant species. The subtropical forest below 1000m changes with pine, rhododendron, and larch forests above.

Some 45 Sherpas villages make up this massif with very different ethnic origins but mostly represented by Tamangs from Tibet. I propose you to discover this beautiful region during this trek.
