Langtang Lirung

Langtang derived its name from Langtang Lirung, subrange of Nepalese Himalayas, its highest peak which was first summited by Seishi Wada and Pemba Tshering in 1978 Japanese-Sherpa Expedition.The region is famous among amateur summiteers due to the availability of a range of peaks to get a taste of Himalayan mountain ranges like Yala peak.The mountains here serve as a natural training camp for rock climbing and ice climbing.

Langtang National Park

The national park is also rich for its freezing lakes like Gosainkunda, Parbatikunda and Dudhkunda formed by at least 70 glaciers .

Gosainkunda

Legend says that during Samundra Manthan, Lord Shiva after drinking the poison that came from the Shamundra Manthan went into insufferable pain, so he went to the Himalayas and put his Trishul, the sacred trident into the womb of himalayas and out came from the deepest keeps of Himalayas the cold and soothing water, with which he not only clenched his thirst but also overcame the unbearable pain of the poison. Since Gosainkunda holds such religious importance,we have introduced it as a part of our religious trek. It extends to an area of 4 square miles and as a part of its tribunal, sips down to the Trishuli river when it melts in the spring.The lake is flooded with pilgrims during Janai Purnima in August/September and during Dashahara in March/April.The Gosainkunda Religious Trek can be accessed through two different routes; one via Dhunche/Shyabru Besi and from Sundarijal.

Tamang Heritage Trail

Although the Langtang Trek takes us to the Tibetan Highlands, do not mistake the Tamang people for Tibetan as they look alike because they are but, of course the descendants of Tibetan, with the originality and purity of Nepalese heart, art and culture, which evidently comes to ones understanding through the live statements the lifestyles, dress code, Tamang houses influenced by Tibetan style.
