Book excerpt: This is the second edition of this popular guidebook to the Langtang Valley and its surroundings, updated after the devastating earthquakes of 2015. To the north of Kathmandu, the Langtang, Gosainkund, Helambu and Tamang Heritage regions are a surprisingly pristine garden of nature's wonders. Enchanting forests host rarely seen wildlife, such as the endangered red panda and musk deer. Sheer ramparts guard the tremendous cirque of Himalayan glaciers and finely fluted ice walls of the upper Langtang valley. Colourful idols abound in ancient monasteries. Below the fluffy clouds above the Gosainkund ridges, pilgrims bow in reverence beside 108 sacred lakes. Trekking around the Langtang region is an exquisite experience, where the authentic face of Nepal presents a kaleidoscope of variety and interest. From sparkling spires and furrowed valleys to sweeping terraced hillsides and quaint village lanes, the Langtang region is sure to capture your heart.
