The Langtang National Park was established in 1976 as the first Himalayan National Park in the country. It is located north of Kathmandu valley and borders on Tibet. The park is inhabited by Tamangs and Sherpa people whose religious, culture, language and dress are much more similar those of Tibet.
The scenery is spectacular and the trek is more adventurous as the area is visited by fewer tourist. The forests in the region have temperate and sub-alpine vegetation. Wildlife includes migratory birds, deer, monkey, Tahr etc.
