To A Himalayan National Park - A Naturalist's Trail.
of Kathmandu valley lies Ganesh Himal and Langtang Lirung.
Nestled at the foot of these Himalayan ranges is a beautiful,
secluded, valley filled with natures bounty - the Langtang
National Park. Here the rare red pandas lurk in dense
lichen-draped rhododendron thickets, heards of blue
sheep graze the alpine meadows and lammergeiers glide
over glaciated valleys amidst a scenery of lofty Himalayan
peaks. From Kyanjin Gompa we will have a chance to climb
a ridge on Yala Peak, or hike to the foot of Langshisa
glacier, for an incredible view of glaciers, icefalls
and snow fields surrounded on all sides by high mountains.
The Helambu villages, over the holy Gosainkunda lakes
and Laurebenayak pass, are the home of the Sherpas of
Nepal.. Their slate and single-roofed villages, that
dot the terraced hillsides, present very fine trekking.
The region of Langtang and Helambu although easily approached
from Kathmandu is far less trekked than the Annapurna
or Everest areas making it all the more attractive.
A wonderful walk through a naturalist's trail.
