Langtang lies about 130 km north of the Kathmandu valley, close to the border with Tibet and China. it is Nepal's first national park and lies between the Himalayan range to the north, dominated by Langtang Lirung ( 7,245 m), the highest peak in the area, and smaller peaks to the south -Chimse Danda ( ridge ), Ganja La pass [(5,122m), Jugal Himal and Dorje Lakpa (6989 m) Th trek here is more adventurous as the area is visited by fewer tourists. Apart from the spectacular scenery, a visit to the area is an opportunity to explore the lifestyle and culture of the Tamangs, whose craftsmanship, language, dress - of which there are more than 70 of varying sizes - and high altitude lakes. the forest in the region has temperate and subalpine vegetation. wildlife includes migratory birds, deer monkeys, tahr, and pika. Apart from Langtang, treks can be arranged to the holy Gosaikunda Lake at 4,380 m, which covers much of the Langtang National Park, and Helambu. Gosaikunda is said to have been created by Lord Shiva when he thrust His Trident into a mountain to draw water to cool his throat after swallowing poison.
