Langtang Valley and below the Gosainkund Lakes is inhabited by the very shy red panda, the rare Himalayan honey guide has been sighted here. Further up in the higher valleys, Himalayan tahr, musk deer and snow leopard can be found.

The upper Langtang Valley is one of the few known breeding grounds of the ibis bills besides the Tibetan snow cock and snow partridge. Like other Himalayan nature parks, Langtang has to be explored on foot. There are several possible trails to choose from depending on preference and time available. The Langtang Valley is easily approached from Dhunche town and park office, which is a days drive from Kathmandu. The upper reaches of Langtang can be reached in four days of easy walking; however, it is advisable to spend a few days around the forest at Ghoda Tabela to watch for the red panda. Once above Langtang village and the monastery at Kyangjin, visitors can explore the high valley of Langshisa Yala peak and Tsergo, Ri.

Due to gradual ascent along the river valley this Langtang trek is not considered strenuous, but yet, it remains challenging. The Langtang trek can be done any time of the year.
