Valley, popularly known as valley of glaciers, is a famous trekking
destination. Its twin attributes, easy accessibility and breathtaking
mountain scenery, make it very popular among the trekkers fraternity.
Located north of Capital Kathmandu, the valley presents beautiful pine
forest, bubbly rivers, rugged rock and snowblanketed peaks and
sprawling meadows. High mountains covered with thick layer of ice overlook
the Lang Tang Valley.

picturesque valley, considered to be the most fascinating and exotic of
Nepali valleys. Specially, in the spring season the scenic view is
enchanting. While trekking in the upper part of valley one passes through
snow bridges, passes covered by mist, and little lakes with icebergs
floating on them. Now, will you be surprised if you are told that Lang Tang
valley has been named the 'wonderland of trekkers'.
