It is being said that a Lama following a footprints of Yak discovered the valley and hence the valley was named Langtang which means (Lang in Tibetan is 'yak' and Teng is 'to follow'). Langtang is a small but beautiful valley situated in the eastern part of Nepal connecting the southern border of Tibet.
Langtang is easily accessible from Kathmandu; a few hours of bus ride will bring you to the most beautiful parts of Himalayas. Langtang holds the beauty of the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. However, trekking with the varieties of rhododendron, bamboo forests, majestic waterfalls and snow-capped Himalayas make the trek one of the most diverse treks close to Kathmandu.
Langtang Lirung (7246m) dominates the valley to the north; Gang Chhenpo (6388m) and Naya Kangri (5864m) lie to the south; and Dorge Lakpa (69866m) protects the east end of the valley. This high and isolated region is inhabited by Tamangs. Tamang are the local ethnic group whose religious practices, language and dress are much more similar to those of Tibet than to the traditions of their cousins in the Middle Hills. Langtang valley trekking offers an opportunity to explore villages, climb small peaks and visit glaciers.
