Langtang National Park was the third most popular trekking region in Nepal after the Annapurna and Everest regions. This changed considerably after the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal on the 28th of April 2015.
Trekking in Langtang valley is often called “the valley of glacial masses trekking “. Langtang is a beautiful place - one where you get to see mesmerising snow-topped mountains covered on stunning sheets of ice. Dominated by Mount Langtang Lirung (7246 m) and located at a distance of just 19 miles to the north of Kathmandu, this valley offers pine woodland forests, serene mountain streams, lush green slopes and an overall enjoyable experience.
Langtang valley is now considered to be ground zero of the earthquake. Just a few days after the earthquake the already damaged village of Langtang was hit by an enormous landslide and got completely swept away. And just like that, the biggest village of the region ceased to exist.
