Langtang Trek is a very interesting trek, journeying through Tamang villages and settlements, rhododendron forests, and spectacular mountain views. This Langtang Trek trail is perfect for those adventurers who would like a unique experience to see the traditional, untouched Tamang heritage, customs and lifestyle.Langtang is a region in the Himalayas of Nepal to the north of the Kathmandu valley and bordering Tibet.The park contains a wide variety of climatic zones, from subtropical to alpine. Approximately 25% of the park is forested. Trees include the deciduous Oak and Maple, evergreens like Pine, and various types of rhododendron. Animal life includes the Himalayan Black bear, the goat-like Himalayan Ahr, Assam Macaque and red Panda. There are also stories of Yeti sightings.
The Tamang people are descendants from Tibet and are not accustomed to many tourists, thus the culture here is virtually untouched. Also, in March and April, the rhododendron forests are in bloom and full of many different species of trees, birds and butterflies. There is also a view point at Goljung pass from where we can see the awe-inspiring views of Langtang and Kerung (Tibet). You might even see bears, leopards, red panda or musk deer on this trek. This recently developed, off-the-beaten-path route combines picturesque landscapes, luring white peaks and scattered ancient villages. Not to be missed.
