Langtang - Lauribinayak Pass Spring 2008


Ancient Tibetan Buddhist texts state that Langtang is a beyul, a “hidden valley”, established by the great tantric yogi Padmasambhav, or Guru Rinpoche, as he is known by the Tibetans. Langtang, a 1,710-sq km National Park in north-central Nepal that encompasses rugged snow-capped peaks, glacier-carved valleys, steep forested mountains and splendid wildlife habitat, is a sheer delight, especially for ecologists. . vegetation is an artist’s palette of green colours, ranging from dark, almost blue-green to Tibetan turquoise-like green and bright emerald. In the jungle, with shafts of light slanting down through the tall trees and bamboo, there are more shades of green than you would ever imagine. Lakes, which are sacred to Hindu pilgrims, this is one of nature’s paradises
