Description

Drive to North - East of Kathmandu. It is an interesting journey starting from local bus park to Syabru Bensi, 132 km alongside the river Trisuli, through the undulating landscape, winding road and local villages. This journey takes the whole day due to the narrow roads.
 
Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the main Himalaya ranges to the north and slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. Langtang Lirung (7246m), dominates the valley to the north, Gang Chempo (6388m) and Naya Kangri (5846m) and Dorje Lhakpa (6966m) protect the east end of the valley. The area was designated as a Nepal’s first National park in 1971.
 
This high isolated region is inhabited by Tamangs and Tibetan origin Bhotes. There are local lodges  with upgraded hydro or solar electricity. People are Buddhist so no killing animal which means only vegetarian meals are served with possible imported meal items. We trek until Kyangjin Gompa (3870m) and go for excursion for an excellent view from Tsergo Ri (4984m). 
 
Optional route: There is another tough route by crossing Ganja la pass (5160m) coming directly to Helambu which is only advisable in certain period for more challenging option. 
 
We return almost same route to Thulo Syabru and turn  to Gosaikunda lake. We return via Chandan Bari, visit a cheese factory. Then back to Dunche to catch a bus/jeep to come back to Kathmandu.

Trek Grading

The Following Is Designed to be a Rough Guide to help you select the trek that suits you best.

Moderate/Reasonable

More remote country, often camping in the wild, the occasional 7 or 8 hour day (camp to camp) but not more than 5 days consecutive walking. Altitude gains of up to 600m. a day.

Adventurous/Vigorous

Up to 9 days consecutive walking including high passes up to 4500m. (With snow covering), but more typically on passes of 3650-4300m. Again, occasionally a 7 or 8 hour day, but usually 5 or 6 hours. A long way from any road!

Challenging / Strenuous

Only one of our treks, "A Himalayan Summit" fully merits this grade. This is purely on account of its altitude, 6000m. Given the time for acclimatization, this is well within the grasp of the fit and healthy.
