Langtang Lirung is the highest peak of the Langtang Himal, which is located just southwest of Shisha Pangma, one of the world's fourteen 8,000-meter peaks. Langtang Lirung is known for its extreme vertical relief, rising abruptly, up to 5500 meters above surrounding terrain.
Though the Langtang Himal is clearly visible from Kathmandu, its highest peak is infrequently climbed compared to other high peaks of the region. Most climbs follow routes along the Southwest or Southeast ridges.
