Langtang valley is protected as Langtang National Park and has a number of high peaks including Langtang Lirung (7246m) Ganesh himal. Langtang 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 snow–blanketed peaks and sprawling meadows. High mountains covered with thick layer of ice overlook the Langtang Valley.The park is comprised of varied climatic conditions. The park is the home to several ethnic groups. The majority of people belong to the Tamangs, an ancient Nepalese race. The Langtang-Gosaikunda region lies north of Kathmandu, close to the Tibetan border.


Gosaigunda (Holly lake) is located at an altitude of 4,380 m (14,370 ft, with a surface of 13.8 ha (34 acres). Together with associated lakes, the Gosaikunda Lake complex is 1,030 ha (4.0 sq mi) in size. The Gosaikunda area has been delineated as a religious site. Hindu mythology attributes Gosaikunda as the abode of Hindu deities Lord Shiva and Goddess Gauri. The Hindu scriptures Bhagavata Purana and Vishnu Purana, and the Hindu epics Ramayana and Mahabharata refer to Samudra manthan, which is directly related to the origin of Gosaikunda. Its holy waters are considered of particular significance during Gangadashahara and the sacred thread festival Janai Purnima when thousands of pilgrims from Nepal and India visit the area. Gosaikunda is believed to have formed from the digging of the land by the Trishul (holy three-pointed sword) of lord Shiva after he drank the poison from Samudra manthan and desperately wanted cold water to quench the overwhelming heat.
