Tamangs are the indigenous inhabitants of this region. The region has well-established lodges along the trail.

It is one of the closest destinations for trekking from Kathmandu. Generally, the region is also quieter than the Annapurna or Everest. Superb clear view of the great peak of Langtang Lirung (7246m.), which dominates the Upper Langtang Valley can be outstanding after the monsoon. In springtime, this is an ideal route for those interested in birds and flowers. Both seasons allow us to reach the glaciers below Langtang Lirung and climb Tsergo Ri for some magnificent panoramas. Our return journey takes us through the spectacular holy lake at Gosainkunda, an important place of pilgrimage, and across the Laurebenayak Pass which brings us to the gentler region of Helambu and finally to the edge of Kathmandu, Melamchi.
