The Langtang region is an incredible mix of the “alpine terrain, lush green midlands, rustic villages and monasteries”. And not only that, you will also come across dense bamboo, rhododendron forests and terraced farms. A highlight is the newly opened part of the Langtang National Park – Tamang Heritage Trail – as a way to meet the original Tibetan horse traders, the Tamang people.
Langtang National Park was the third most popular trekking region in Nepal after Annapurna and Everest regions. This changed considerably after the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal on the 25th of April 2015.
But regular visitors to Nepal will not be surprised to learn that despite suffering such a devastating natural disaster, the tourism infrastructure in the region has restored so quickly. Trails were soon rebuilt or diverted, and teahouses erected. Within a year of the tragedy there were enough teahouses open in the villages for trekking agencies to resume trips, including few lodges in Langtang village.
It is now possible to trek there in the same way you could before. The villagers don’t need aid or donations. The people are resilient and seem to be content. Hence, the best way you can help is by paying them a visit.
