Remembering the Himalayan village of Langtang, Nepal, 02/January/2015 - @lonelyplanet | #Langtang was a Tibetan village in Northern Nepal with 468 inhabitants living in 100 individual households. The village was almost entirely destroyed by a massive avalanche resulting from an earthquake on 25 April 2015. Reports from the area indicate that the village has only one structure remaining, with significant parts of the village buried beneath a landslide. As of 1 May 2015 most of the village's inhabitants are "presumed to have perished".
