Langtang region lies in northern hemisphere in Kathmandu valley. It is also very popular trekking region in Nepal. This trek is an area of Lantang national park. Langtang national park was established in 1976 by the Government of Nepal to conserve the unique flora and fauna of the region. It has area of 1710 km2. The park encompasses Gosaikunda and associated lakes, which were declared wetlands of international importance in 2007 under the Ramsar Convention.
Langtang National Park represents some of the best example of graded climatic condition in the Central Himalaya.The three main ethnic groups in the Lantang national park and its buffer Zone are the Tamang, Yolmo and Bhotia, each thought to have originated in Tibet. The cultures are discernible by their language, home style, dress, ornaments and customs. They follow the Bon religion, a pre-Buddhist doctrine prevalent in Tibet. The Yolmo people of the Helambu region are often referred to as the “Sherpa”. However, their language and socio-cultural set-up do not resemble the Solukhumbu Sherpa. Their religion and Monasteries reflect rich Buddhist traditions. It is believed that Gosaikundais said to have been created by the Lord Shiva when he thrust his Trident into a mountain to draw water to cool his throat after swallowing poison.
