Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just south of 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 (7246 m.) dominates the valley to the north; Gangchhenpo (6388 m.) and Naya Kangri (5846 m.) lie to the south; and Dorje Lakpa (6966 m.) protects the east end of the valley.
This valley was introduced as the most beautiful valley in the world by the British mountaineer and explorer H.W.Tilman and has been famous ever since. Tilman was the first to visit this area as soon as Nepal opened its door to the world in 1950.
The high isolated region is inhabited by Tamangs whose religious practices, language and dress are much more similar to Tibetans 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 a comfortably low elevation.
