It’s no secret that most of us like to travel and we use every opportunity we get to pack our bags and leave for a new place. But when it comes to making those arduous trips to Gosaikunda and Langtang a reality, we tend to find one reason or the other as to why we can’t make it ‘this’ time and keep putting it off.

I cried when I reached Langtang, but the tears were not for the beauty that surrounded me but for the fear that I might die. The path was really steep as it was eroded by landside that had occurred in the massive earthquake of 2015. The road was a pile of small rocks. I took a deep breath and took a hesitant step forward. My trembling legs couldn’t get a firm grip and I even slipped a little.

RASUWA, Nov 4: Devastating avalanches last April had buried 175 locals, 35 foreigners and 10 Nepali Army personals in the Langtang village. Once regarded as 'queen of natural beauty', it was turned lifeless in seconds due to the avalanche. Survivors had left Langtang village, the place after which the VDC itself is named, with bleak hope of ever returning. The extent of destruction was so much that even the government restricted tourists from visiting Langtang region. One and half year down the line it has made tremendous progress in regaining its fervor.
