Langtang is a beautiful region to the north of Kathmandu and situated inside the well protected Langtang National Park. The area is dense with Alpine and Rhododendron Forests (Flowering in March/April/May) and rich in bird and wildlife. As the Park is protected, human habitation only happens in the Buffer Zone and the main Valley. The people here are of Tibetan origin and live a simple yet sustainable life of Yak and Cow farming. The valley is not normally inhabited, the settlements are chiefly for tourism purposes and you can also find a scattering of Yak herders huts on the valley sides. The area has a certain magic and charm and the landscape is excellent for mountain biking.
