Langtang Lirung (7234m) is the highest peak in the park which towering above the valley. Besides Langtang Lirung, there are other peaks such as Gangchhempo, Dorje Lakpa, Langsisa Ri, Yubra Himal, Naya Khang, and Yala peak around.

The trek begins from Syafrubesi which is a day drive from Kathmandu. The trek passes through Langtang village to reach Kyanjin Gomba. A half part of the Langtang village was destroyed because of avalanches hitting the mountain Langtang Lirung in April’s Earthquake in 2015. The village is rebuilt and known as a New Langtang where the lodges are available now.
