This Langtang region covers an area of 1,710 sq kilometer. The area is covered by the Langtang National Park (titled in 1971) and this region is populated by Tamang and Sherpa folks whose religious practices, linguistic and costume are somewhat alike to Tibetan culture.

As there are many places to attempt trekking around this Langtang region; the most splendid area to trek along is on the - Gosaikunda Lake (one the sacred lake to Hindus and Buddhist) and Helambu region which lies to the south. As being covered by the national park, - on the trial you might also spot different wildlife like the Himalayan black bear, Himalayan tahr, Ghoral, Grey Langur monkey, Rhesus monkey, Pika, Himalayan red panda , Muntjack (barking deer), musk deer, leopard etc. and many different species of birds.
As one-fourth of the park is covered in forest, on the trail to this forested area, you get to spot rhododendron, maple, chir pine, hemlock, spruce and oak forests.
