Lantang Region

Trekking north of Kathmandu is inquisitively underrated and moderately uncrowded. The most available of all the trekking locales, it's appropriate to maybe a couple week agendas. What it needs in superlatives – there are no 8000m crests in the region (unless you tally Shisha Pangma, over the outskirt in Tibet) – it compensates for in base-to-top ascents that are as sensational as anyplace. Langtang, specifically, conveys more stunning perspectives in a brief while than whatever other stroll in trek in Nepal, with the conceivable exemption of the Annapurna Sanctuary.
