3rd TAAN International Langtang Marathon 2018
Unlike last year, the event this year will be a full-fledged event of 42.195 kilometers. The marathon will start from Kyanjin Gompa, a popular village in the Langtang Region, and end at Syabrubensi.
Kyanjin gompa is situated at an altitude of 3,870 meters in the Langtang National Park of Nepal. It is one of the major attractions of the Langtang Valley Trek and the most popular landmark in the region. There is indeed a small gompa (temple) in Kyanjin and you can easily find someone with a key to open it up for you. The Kyanjin gompa is in dire need of renovation. The race passes through major settlements in the region like Langtang, Ghoda Tablea, Riverside, Lama Hotel, Rimche, Sherpagaun, Khanjim, and Briddim before concluding at Syabrubensi.
