Trekking in the Langtang Valley combines the remote and spectacular valley of Langtang, with the high mountain lakes at Gosainkund and the beautiful Helambu Valley. Trail of Langtang valley trek is in the most unspoiled national parks of Nepal, which is perhaps why there is such a high appeal of this trekking route. Situated at North of Kathmandu near the Tibetan border, it is the most easily accessible highland sanctuary from the capital. This remote Langtang valley is enclosed by snow-capped mountains which culminate in the peak of Langtang Lirung (7246m). Langtang valley trekking starts from the lower Langtang Valley which takes you through forests and among the villages and farmlands of many who are of Tibetan origin. The deep gorges of Bhote Koshi and Langtang Khola are thickly forested with rhododendron, oak, maple and alder. The stretch of forest around Ghoda Tabela in the lower Langtang Valley and below Gosainkunda is inhabited by the red panda, a rare and threatened symbol of a healthy Himalayan ecosystem. As you make your way through the Langtang, there is a high possibility of seeing many interesting wildlife. Common to these forests are the wild boar, Himalayan black bear, ghoral, grey langur monkey and leopard. Larch, a rare deciduous conifer, is also found in the forest of lower Langtang Valley. Further up, Himalayan thahr, musk deer and snow leopard can be found. The upper Langtang Valley is one of the few known breeding grounds of the ibils bills besides the Tibetan snow cock and snow partridge.
