Langtang-Gosaikunda-Helambu Trek

The Langtang Trek is to the north of the valley of Kathmandu. It is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibet border and is sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north and slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. Langtang Lirung (7,246m) dominates the valley to the north; Gang Chhenpo (6,388m) and Naya Kangri (5,846m) lie to the south; and Dorji Lakpa (6,966m) protects the east end of the valley. The area was designated Nepal's first Himalayan National Park in 1971 and use of firewood is strictly prohibited.

According to legend, a lama following a runaway Yak discovered the valley. Hence the name 'Lang' - Tibetan for Yak and 'Teng' (more correctly Dhang) means to follow. Yaks still live in the valley but they now share it with trekkers.
