The Langtang Trek is a short, moderate adventure that offers spectacular views of snow-capped mountains and a strong Tibetan influence. It is the perfect introductory hike that starts just north of Kathmandu, near the border of Tibet and is dominated by the Langtang Lirung that towers (23,734 ft) twenty three thousand, seven hundred thirty four feet high above sea level. Notably the highest peak in the Langtang Himal, a subrange of the Nepalese Himalayas.
