Langtang area offers a range of cultures with the main three ethnic peoples living in are the Tamang, and Bhotias who have originated from Tibet in the past 500 years till the mid 20th century. In a southern section of the park lies a small area of sub-tropical chestnut forest, along with unique Sal forest. The hill forests (2000-2,600m) across the southern slopes of the park consist of Chir Pine, Rhododendron, Nepalese Alder, and Oak. Moving north and higher, the alpine zone (2,600-3000m) are mainly Mountain Oak, fading to Silver Fir, Hemlock and Larch in the lower sub-alpine zone (3000-3,6000m); throughout these zones, several species of Rhododendron trees form a twisted and colorful understory, continuing higher to tree line Birch and Fir forest are the last to survive.
