Langtang/ 11 days, 4773m

This trek leads you through the breathtaking natural wonders of the Langtang region. The trek runs via sparsely populated areas. One of the attractions is yak cheese factory which can be visited on the way. There are spectacular views of mountains like Langtang 2 (6596m), Langtang Lirung (7227m), Changbu (6251m), Kinshung (6781m), Yala Peak (5500m), Yansa Tsenji (6567m) and many more mountains. All these mountains can be seen from Kyanjin – beautiful view point.

The journey starts first with driving about 6-7 hours by jeep from Kathmandu to Dhunche (1960m) – here we stay overnight in a teahouse. This is starting point of the trek. The next day we trek from Dhunche to Thulo Syaphru (2250m) which takes about 4-5 hours. As you enter Syaphru, you descend to the ridge line that separates the Langtang Khola from the Trisuli River. From here you can enjoy spectacular views of Langtang Lirung (7227m), Tibetan Himal ranges and so on. We stay overnight in a teahouse. The next day trek start from Thulo Syaphru (2250m) to Lama Hotel – the altitude of which is 2410m. This trial is about five hours and it descends along the ridge on Syaphru’s main street and then drops to the Chopche Khola. Before going along a level path to Lama Hotel on the way you can see red pandas, monkeys and bears – if you are lucky. The next day trek starts from Lama Hotel to Langtang village – the altitude of which is 3430m. This trek lasts four to five hours. On the way to Langtang village first you will reach at Ghodatapela which is 3030m altitude. On the way to Ghodatabela we walk inside a forest close to the river. You can also see white monkeys and local birds on the way which makes the trek really unique and full of surprises. The trail continues to climb gently and the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during the summer season. The next day we start from Langtang village to Kyanjin Gumba. The altitude of this place is 3830m. We walk about three hours this day. The trial goes gradually through small villages and yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. We have to cross several small streams and moraines. The trail reaches settlement at Kyanjin. From this point, you can enjoy the panoramic views of Dorje Lakpa (6966m), Langtang  II (6596m), Langtang Lirung (7227m) and several others. We spend one rest day in Kyanjin Gumba. On this day you can walk for two to three hours in the nearest mountains, reach the Kyanjin Ri from where you can have more extensive views and altitude of which is 4773m. After all of this we go back to teahouse where we stay overnight. The next day trek leads back from Kyanjin Gumba to Lama Hotel which takes about six hours. The trail from Kyanjin is all the way down hills. Trek from Lama Hotel to Syaphru Besi of which the altitude is around 1600m takes 4-5 hours. Trek goes all the way down hills. First you will reach to Rimche from which you can have a great green view of hills. After Rimche you will walk down to Bamboo which is 1970m. This place is located at a riverside with its few lodges. Most of the time we walk inside a forest which is close to Langtang Khola river. The main inhabitants belong to the Tamang community and have adopted Tibetan lifestyle.
