How Langtang and Helambu Region like:
Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is located between the main Himalayan ranges to the north and slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. This high and isolated region is inhabited by Tamangs whose religious believes and practices; language, traditions and dress are more alike with those of Tibetan people. According to the legend a lama following a ranaway yak discovered the valley. So, the name -lang - is Tibetan for 'yak' and -teng-(more correctly dhang) means 'to follow'. Langtang valley offers an opportunity to explore villages, climb small peaks and what's more important pure nature surroundings will bring peace to your heart and you'll enjoy being part of nature.
Much of this region falls into Lantang National Park (Nepal's first Himalayan national park) and away from the larger settlements, you can enjoy seeing old-growth forest: rhododendron, oak, alder, pine and much more. Beautiful flowers such as the sky-blue gentians of alpine regions, primroses of moist areas, epiphytic orchids of wet forests which bloom during many times of the year will accompany you on your way. Langtang is rich in rare species of animals being the region where one hundred and sixty species of birds (cuckoos, owls, barbets, nightjars, black-capped sibias, yellow-billed magpies- just few of them) and more than thirty species of mammals have been observed, including a very rare snow leopard, only a few dozen specimens of which survive in the entire Himalaya. This trekking route also offers you an opportunity to see sacred lakes of Gosainkund, which are holy places for Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims and said, were created by God Shiva.

Muktinath is an important pilgrimage place for Hindus. The most colorful pilgrims to this area are the ascetic sadhus. There is a temple of Shiva and a padoga-style temple, Vishnu Mandir, which contains an image of Vishnu. Around the temple is a wall from which 108 brass waterspouts, cast in the shape of cows' heads, pour forth sacred water. And this is the case when more truly to use proverb: "Better once to see than many times to hear". The Tibetan Buddhist saint Guru Rimpoche is believed to have visited Muktinath in the 8th century.
From Annapurna valley floor (below 1000m.) to the summit of Annapurna (8091m.) there is unbelievable variety of habitats. While trekking in this region you can move between the flourishing subtropics and the austere alpine climes in a matter of days, witnessing the effect of altitude, topography and climate on life.
Trekking through rhododendron forests, which bloom from red to pink to white, depending on altitude in springtime. And as trail takes you upward from the roar of the powerful river the singing of various birds and calm sounds of nature will accompany you on your way. The dry forests of blue pine will gently protect your trekking from strong winds.
Many vibrant species of beautiful butterfly display their colours in the heat of the day in low valleys. Variety of wildflowers is in bloom long after the monsoon, thanks for the area's high rainfall. Look for composites (asters, daisies etc.) and the pleone orchids that bloom on trees.
