Langtang and Helambu, to the north of Kathmandu, are perhaps the most convenient of all the trekking areas; it is even possible to begin your trek from your hotel door in Thamel! Any visitor to Nepal in April should see the rhododendron forests that cover the northern slopes of Helambu, which are only rivalled by those in the Kanchenjunga region. The Bhotia people here are just as friendly as the Sherpa elsewhere, and the intermingling with Brahmin, Chhetri and Newar people is a reminder of Nepal's harmonious ethnic diversity. It is almost unbelievable that so few trekkers continue past Kyangjin Gompa to visit the Langshisa Glacier, or cross the Tilman Pass, where the mountains are just amazing.
Established in 1976, the Langtang National Park has a reputation for being well managed, where locals actively help to maintain Park biodiversity and ecology. Human impact is limited but not absent as grazing is allowed in high pastures and permanent communities are permitted to exist in the heart of the Park.
