About Langtang National Park in Kathmandu
Langtang National Park in Nepal is one of the places still untouched and untarnished by all the urbanisation. Established in 1976, this protected area covers the districts of Nuwakot, Rasuwa and Sindhupalchok in Central Nepal Himalayas. Langtang National Park shares its northern and eastern borders with Qomolangma National Nature Preserve in Tibet China. On the south lies Kathmandu Valley some 32 km away. On its west is Nepal’s largest water system – Trishuli and Koshi Rivers. The forest offers an extensive ecological biodiversity for a variety of flora and fauna to thrive in perfect harmony. Gosaikunda Lake and Dorje Lakpa range bisects the park from east to west and from south to east. The beautiful view of the highest summit Langtang Lirung is something worth remembering. The flora here consists of typical upper tropical vegetation – firs, maples, pines, oaks and hemlocks are aplenty. Among fauna, red panda, Himalayan black bear, leopard and musk deer are native.
Trekking in Langtang National Park:
Langtang National Park is best explored on foot. Nothing quite matches the experience of taking in the beauty of the nature with every step. The main trek routes here are the Langtang Valley, Helambu and Gosaikunda Lake. The valley routes can be approached from Dhunche city. Ghoda Tabela lies midway to all the long distance hikes and there are many pandas here. The villages of Langisha Yala and Tsero Ri also falls on the way. Gang La is the highest pass in Langtang National park trekking routes, mostly travelled by veteran hikers. Gosaikunda Lake via the picturesque Helambu village is perfect for an alternate route, lush with flowering plants and covered in high canopies. For even remoter routes, one can venture to the Panch Pokhari region towards the east of Helambu, where there are five lakes clustered together or to the toe of Langshisa ice mass along the Gang La pass.
