The national park in the Langtang Valley is the first of its kind in the Himalayas and is located in North East of Nepal. Tourists have been known to throng the Langtang village for the trek that starts at Syaphru Besi and passes through the Lama Hotel, Ghoratabela, and Kyanjin Gompa.
The avalanche that was triggered by the Gorkha earthquake obliterated the beautiful village. I clicked a few photos while I was on the trek. The photos show just how destructive both the earthquake and the avalanche was. 18 months after, this is what walking through the Langtang village was like.
