Where is Langtang ?
Langtanag is located at North of Kathmandu valley and border of Tibet. The Langtang valley is in central Nepal, around 19 miles north side. Although near Kathmandu, closer than some other trek, this is more or less wild.
To start Langtang hiking, you have to drive Kathmandu to Syabru Besi. We can get public buses at New Buspark of Kathmandu to go Syabru Besi. We can also rent a Jeep or Car for our destination. But the public bus takes more time than private jeep or car. I recommended you take a private Jeep. Back from Kyanjing Gumpa is also the same route.
