When I was Trekking Guide, In 2004 April, the first time I went to Langtang Trek. I was surprised by knowing Langtang Trekking which includes amazing Himalayan views in various areas. The word Langtang is a combined word of Lang which means Ox and another word Tang means stomach with lots of meals.

I was very happy, Our trek was of total eight days but the fourth day, was a very memorable day for me because, on that very day, I got a great opportunity to visit Kanging Gumba of Langtang village, which was a very beautiful place. My client who was from the U.S.A. woke up early in the morning we observed very clear weather and the environment was calling us to catch up with its natural beauty. We started Our destination from the Langtang village. The Kanging Gumba trekking route was also an amazing gumba I have seen ever. We were surrounded by snowy mountains from both sides which were willing to touch the sky and touch the white clouds.

On the way, the jungle consisting small trees like:- Sunpati (a small tree of rhododendron which is a national flower in Nepal) and many kinds of flora and fauna. There were very beautiful scenery. Beside this, a river named Langtang Khola which was flowing with clean water. It comes from mountainous areas by melting the snow of it. On the way, we saw many yaks (Himalayan Buffaloes) living at higher altitudes. We found Dahi (yogurt) and yak cheeses made from yak milk, it was very tasty and healthy too. Big hills were observed. We saw real Tamang culture, and metal made many local things. Finally, I like to suggest that in once everyone needs to go to Langtang Trek to observe Nepal’s naturality, lifestyle, and culture of that area.
