ITINERARY

Expand All

After leaving Kathmandu we have a seven-hour journey by road heading to the Langtang Valley. The road climbs out of Kathmandu Valley at which point you will have some fantastic views of the Annapurna Mountains, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, and other peaks in the Langtang region. Our first destination is Trishuli Village from where we continue climbing until we reach Dhunche and enter then enter the Langtang National Park. Leaving Dhunche we drive for another hour downhill until we reach Syabru Besi where we stay the night.

Today we follow the trail and cross the Bhote Kosi (meaning Tibet River) which flows from Tibet. We then climb through sub-tropical forest and join the trail coming from Syabru Besi before heading down through oak and rhododendron forests. On the trail it is more than likely we will encounter Langur monkeys frolicking in the treetops. We continue up a steep incline before reaching the Lama Hotel where we stay the night.

We will climb through forest on the first leg of today’s trek and will have occasional views of Langtang Lirung from between the trees. At Ghora Tabela (3,000m) we emerge from the forest and come to a Nepali army outpost. We continue and pass through several small settlements occupied by herders who come here to graze their livestock, including Yak, in these mountain pastures in summer. Not too much further we come to Langtang Village, which has mostly been rebuilt in a more modern style of architecture. There are still reminders here of the devastation from the 2015 earthquake.

From Mundu, the trail climbs gradually through yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyanjin. Here there is a small monastery and a government-operated cheese factory, which is a good place to stock up for lunch and afternoon snacks. As you will arrive by lunchtime there is time to take it easy in the afternoon or explore the area. If you are feeling energetic, head up the Valley towards Langshisha Kharka to see some of the amazing views. Today you can sit back and relax or explore the surrounding area. You may also wish to visit the monastery and the cheese factory, walk up to the moraine to see the spectacular ice faces and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung or alternatively ascend Kyanjin Ri directly behind the village, for breath-taking views of the Langtang peaks.

After leaving Kyanjin we head back on the same trail we followed up the valley, following the Langtang Khola to Mundu village and on to Ghora Tabela. The descent will certainly be easier and faster than the ascent. After lunch, we continue the steep descent to Lama Hotel.

Today we retrace our footsteps to Syabru Besi, enjoying the peaceful forested hills. If you are feeling energetic then we can take the more impressive route from Rimche via Sherpa Gaon to Syabru Besi; it will take much longer to reach the ultimate destination, but it’s a worthy detour.

Today we are on the road back to Kathmandu on a windy and picturesque journey with views of green hills and gorges. You will be transferred to the hotel where you can either enjoy the leisure time and relax or catch up in visiting some sights in Kathmandu Valley or do some last-minute shopping.

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfortable and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities. 

Meals during the trek

In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Langtang regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.

Transportation

We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek. 

Physical fitness

This can be an easy trek where you often have to walk 5-6 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake. 

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!
