As we trekked uphill to reach the base of Langtang, locally known as Langtang Lirung, the air became thinner and thinner, temperature colder and colder, sky bluer and bluer; but the thinner air brought a warmth of nature – a sense of belonging to this beautiful land – we call Nepal. Langtang Lirung is the utmost peak of the Langtang range, belonging to the sub-range of the Mid Northern Himalayan range of Nepal residing southwest of the Shisha Pangma. Including the Jugal, the home of Shisha Pangma, the Langtang Himal composites the western portion of the range.
