Day 3: Bus/Jeep ride from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1400mts)

Depending on road conditions and transport, this trip can take anywhere from 4-12 hours.

After morning breakfast we follow the north-west running hills out of Kathmandu. Take in the

Himlayan views and mountainous terrain to gain an insight into the Nepali lifestyle as we

drive through terraced rice fields and rustic villages. 

Lunch will be taken at the Trishuli Bazar before continuing further to Dhunche. From

Dhunche, we descend down to Syabrubesi. 

During night time we prepare for our trek that departs in the morning and spend the night in

Syabrubesi.

Day 4: Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel (2500mts) - 6 hours

The first day of trekking follows the Langtang Khola River, passing through dense forests

and crossing numerous suspension bridges. There is the option to stop and visit tea house

for afternoon tea. The trail goes up and down but it's not a challenging day of hiking (the

perfect warm up).

 

Day 5: Lama Hotel to Thyangshyapu (3140mts) - 5 hours

After breakfast, we embark on our second day of the journey. Our trail continues along

dense forests. After making a steady climb up through the valley, the tree line is finally below

us. We are greeted with marvellous views of Langtang Lirung.  Today’s trekking passes by

water mills, prayer wheels and chortens with sacred mounds of rocks with inscriptions

carved on them.

 

Day 6: Thyangshyapu to Kyanjin Gompa (3850mts) - 5 hours

Leaving Thyangshyapu after morning tea we initially pass through Langtang Valley and yak

pastures. On this day we also pass the largest mani wall in Nepal (stone wall with prayers

written on them). The prayers written on the mani wall are supposed to be blown away by

the wind. Crossing several wooden bridges spanning different valleys, we begin getting into

high altitude. This is when we are grateful for the slow ascent as some may start feeling the

‘thin air’. Kanjin Gompa is completely surrounded by the Himalayan Mountains. Guests will

take a walk around Kanjin Gompa in the afternoon to soak in the stunning views, glaciers,

icefalls, birds and yaks.

Option to do smaller hikes in the afternoon to Kyanjin Ri (4800mts) for sunset and

spectacular panoramic view of Langtang Himalaya range.

 

Day 7: Kyanjin Gompa (3850mts) to Kyanjin Ri (4800mts)

town of Kyanjin Gompa. The group will have the option of an acclimatisation hikes to Kyanjin

Ri (4800mts) for spectacular panoramic view of Langtang Himalaya range and Langtang

glaciers. This hike will help group members to make the sunrise summit of Tserko Ri

(5000mts) tomorrow morning.

 

Day 8: Visit to Tserko Ri (5000mts) and return to Lama Hotel - 6 hours

Early morning we visit to Tserko Ri (5000m/16,404ft) for incredible sunrise views over the

Himalaya. Return for breakfast and then the group proceeds back to Lama Hotel. Since, its

mostly downhill, it is 4/5 hours walk from Kanjin Gompa to Lama Hotel. The trail returns

down the hill through the thick forest that shrouds the river. The return hike passes the ethnic

Tamang settlements who follow religious and cultural practices similar to the Tibetans. A

great cultural experience.
