Featured in the list of 52 places to visit in 2017 by New York Times, trekking in Langtang aids to its recovery from the 2015 Nepal earthquake.
Langtang region in the north of Kathmandu has been a popular trans-Himalayan trade route from ancient and medieval period. The Langtang valley also was a safe haven for Buddhists during the crisis. Hence Langtang exhibits most vivid culture of Shamanistic Tamangs and Tibetan Buddhist Sherpas. It is protected as Langtang National Park and has a number of high peaks including Langtang Lirung (7246m). The easy access from Kathmandu and the awe-inspiring scenery makes Langtang trek popular among the trekkers.
