Meaning Of LANGTANG

"Centuries ago in Tibet, there was an ox that learned that both it and a nak (female yak) were going to be killed for the feast in a marriage ceremony. They ran away to the Langtang area, where the nak disappeared. To bring them back, Guru Rinpoche followed them and found the ox resting in the spot where Langtang village lies today. The name “Langtang” derives from “lang” meaning “ox” and “dhong” meaning “satiated,” and it is said that Guru Rinpoche built a chorten here. Unfortunately, on the way back to Tibet, the ox died at Langshisha Ri.”, Recounts Thiley Lama in the book “The book of rituals of Dhomares”

 

EXPLORATION

1949: Tilman leads a four-month exploratory and scientific expedition to the Langtang, Ganesh, and Jugal Himal in Nepal, in the early stages of that country's re-opening to outsiders. He climbs Paldor in the Ganesh Himal. Major Harold William "Bill" Tilman (14 February 1898 – 1977) was an English mountaineer and explorer, renowned for his Himalayan climbs and sailing voyages.

YAK CHEESE AT KYANJIN GOMPA

The Yak-cheese-factory, which is located in Kyanjin Gompa opened in 1955 with Swiss support.
