The marathon route will follow through Kyanjin Gomba-Godha Tabela- Lama Hotel- Rimche- Sherpagaon-Khangjim and Syabrubensi. Kyanjin Gompa is a Buddhist monastery located at an altitude of 3870 meter from where one can get breathtaking spectacular views of Langtang ranges. The village of Kyanjin Gompa is often the last destination for most trekkers in Langtang valley trek.

3rd TAAN International Langtang Marathon 2018 is going to be held with an objective to develop Nepal as an international destination for sports and sporting events. It aims to promote Nepal with Langtang in particular as one of the major destinations for adventure tourism among both international and national tourists.
