Straight north from Kathmandu is the Langtang-Helambu locale which appreciates snow-secured crests, a mellow atmosphere, and cordial affable occupants which makes it the perfect trek nearly year round. The 1,710 SQ km Langtang National Park has an assortment of common qualities, from rich valleys buzzing with sluggishness monkeys to the towering fir and rhododendron backwoods overflowing with spring shading. The 7,246 meter Langtang Lirung toward the north, Gang Chhenpo (6,388 meters) toward the south and Dorje Lhakpa (6,975 meters) toward the east overwhelms the lovely Langtang valley.

Lama and Tamang individuals keep up a rich social legacy, clear in resplendently cut wooden windows, vivacious move celebrations, and talented weaving customs.
