Message from President
I am delighted to welcome you all to the third edition of TAAN International Langtang Marathon. Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal (TAAN) began organizing TAAN International Langtang Marathon as its flagship event since 2016, a year after massive earthquake that had completely destroyed Langtang village.
Through this event TAAN has been successful and effective in disseminating the message that Langtang region is safe and once again open for trekking and tourism. No wonder the flow of tourists has made a dramatic recovery in this short span of time along with the reopening of Langtang trekking trail and rebuilding of Langtang village.
Located in the heart of Rasuwa district, Langtang National Park was designated as the first Himalayan protected area of Nepal. As in the past years, TAAN will be organizing 3rd Langtang Marathon to promote marathon as a new tourism product in the region as well as increase knowledge and awareness in the conservation of local biodiversity, rare flora and fauna.
TAAN is hoping to increase the participation of international as well as local participants in the marathon. Therefore, I invite everyone to take part in the event and make it successful.
Here is wishing you all the best.
Nava Raj Dahal
