Langtang Lirung lies near the Trisuli Gandaki, and north of the Langtang Khola. Langtang Lirung is at an altitude of 7234m from sea level. Langtang Lirung is the highest peak of the Langtang Himal, which is a sub range of the Nepalese Himalayas, southwest of the Eight-thousand Shishapangma. The peak was reconnoitered by H. W. Tilman and P. Lloyd in 1949.
Langtang Lirung is an imposing mountain, standing tall and proud in the majestic Himalayan range. Langtang Lirung is of course a daunting challenge for any experienced mountaineer, but rewarding those who are up to the challenge, to find the breathtaking views and sense of accomplishment make it well worth the effort.
On 24 October 1978 two members of a Japanese expedition made the first ascent of the mountain via East Ridge.
Langtang Lirung is a very beautiful and excellent massive view of Langtang range. Langtang Lirung is clearly visible from Kathmandu. It is situated just 35 km as the crow flies distance north of Kathmandu.
The climb itself takes several days and involves traversing a treacherous path along steep and jagged ridges, negotiating glacier crossings, and contending with harsh weather conditions. Langtang Lirung is 10 KM climbing distance. It is 42.9 km trekking to reach base camp. We fixed three upper camps to summit the Langtang Lirung.
