Part of the Great Himalayan range, the Langtang chain hems in a valley that is amazingly scenic. The trails lead through Helambu with high wooded foothills dotted with pretty villages, and past the sacred shimmering Gosainkund lakes, overlooked by grim, rugged mountains.

Milestone Himalayan Series' Langtang & Helambu is a comprehensive illustrated handbook for the trek with a detailed 1:100,000 foldout map and over 80 color photographs.

The guide comes packed with exhaustive day-by-day description of the various Langtang and Helambu trails:
Langtang Valley
Gosainkund Lakes
Helambu Circuit

There is, in addition, practical advice on planning and organizing the trek with a chapter on how to tackle medical emergencies.

Plus background reading on the people who live in the region -- Tamangs, Langtang Tibetans, Yolmo Sherpas -- and an introduction to Tibtan Buddhism, the religion they mostly practice.
