Langtang region is the most easily accessible region from Kathmandu and offers stunning trekking trails in Helambu, Gosaikunda trek, and Bhairav Kunda. One of the major attractions of the Langtang region is the wild landscape of Langtang valley and the numerous mountain lakes embedded in it. Gosaikunda Lake and Bhairav Kunda Lake and the green lush valleys make Langtang region a must-visit regardless of how much time you have here in Nepal. When compared to the Everest and Annapurna regions, the Langtang region lags behind in the infrastructures and luxury guesthouses, therefore, it is less traveled by adventure lovers but it is a great choice if you want to opt for a more less-traveled region in Nepal.
The Langtang National Park is the major highlight of this region. Over 150 species of birds and many mammals and other animals live in the park including the Red Panda. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of pandas in the woods of bamboo trees. Langtang region is not just popular for its natural beauty but also for the cheese factory and cultural richness. The people residing in those areas follow Tibetan Buddhist culture, so Gompas and monasteries shower the region as well as the famous Tibetan prayer flags and wheels.
Apart from natural beauty and cultural richness, the people in this region treasure their unique culture and tradition and love to show off their untouched, beloved lifestyle. People sing and dance in their own language in their colorful clothing. The craftworks of the local people can be seen in the houses built, windows, pillars and many others. People weave bamboo baskets in the streets and their warm nature which will make you feel instantly welcomed.
