Trip Itinerary

Try arriving in Kathmandu during the day or early in the morning to give yourself more time to prepare for the journey. Our representative and driver will meet you when you get to the airport. They'll go with you to the lodging. The guide will meet with you over coffee to give you an update on your excursions and to inform you about any necessary equipment or routes. Look over your gear and attire. Make sure you have all the necessary accessories and equipment by doing some last-minute buying if necessary. In the late evening, you will get together for a welcoming dinner with your teammates.

Early in the morning, you will set out on a breathtaking ride through Kathmandu to reach Syabrubesi. Along with the stunning Himalayan Range, the surrounding landscape, rice terraces, and towns will all be visible to us. One of the major bazaars on the route to Syabrubesi is Trisuli Bazaar. You will reach the quaint Langtang village of Dhunche (1960 m; 6430 ft) after a steady ride. About two hours' journey separates Syabrubesi village from Dhunche.

The route initially follows the Langtang Khola and crosses Bhote Koshi. This path goes through the area of landslides and eventually rises to bamboo. After that, your walk makes a gentle elevation past Bamboo (1960 meters), which is situated on the bank of Langtang Khola, to Rimche (2400 meters). You can eat lunch here if you'd like. At last, your route meets up with the Lama Hotel. Along the trip, you might spot bears, monkeys, and red pandas if you're lucky.

Gumanechok is the trail's path; Ghoda Tabela terms it "the horse stable." After this, the trail becomes a little more scenic as it travels through the valley where the yaks are grazing. The views from Langtang village, one of the trek's fewer tourists and historic settlements, are increasingly breathtaking as we approach the peak.

A short and simple day trip is Kyanjing Gompa. Three to four hours are needed, roughly. The Langtang Valley's last village is Kyanjing. In Kyanjing, you may purchase cheese as well as take tours of the cheese plant and monastery. This is a beautiful valley that offers a lot of intriguing sights. Staying overnight at a resort and eating three courses

Just in front of the face, there looks to be a trail leading up to a summit where numerous landslides have occurred. Because of the small routes, high terrain, and sloppy moraine thus far, we advise against trying to ascend that peak in the event of snowfall or if it starts to snow while you are there. If you plan to climb this summit, don't forget to bring a stick. Thankfully, it offers amazing vistas. Kyanjin Ri is hikeable, reaching an elevation of around 4700 meters. You get to see Langtang Lirung up close.

When you return to the Lama Hotel, you will be rewarded with an amazing view. It's a nice downhill stroll to the Lama Hotel from Kyanjin Gompa. Admire the pathways and surrounding landscape.

After traveling through Syabru Besi's "pahiro" day of landslides, we arrived at a fork in the road—the Lama Hotel. The trail then continues down a short slope through bamboo to a neighborhood tea shop that sells cool beverages. The suspension bridge will then be crossed, giving us a fantastic view of Ganesh Himal. To get to Thulo Syabru, the trail climbs over smooth mud, and some domestic animals suck through bamboo and buildings. Stay the night at a resort and eat meals in full

Steeply ascending, the trail passes through verdant scenery encompassing and extending beyond the Tibet, Manaslu, Ganesh, and Langtang ranges. The path via Singgompa is not the shortest from Thulo Syabru to Cholang Pati. From Foprang Danda until it reaches Sing Gompa, the trail is typically level. Both the cheese factory and the Buddhist monastery in Singompa are well-known. A few hikers camp here at night. We travel for around 1.5 hours to reach Cholang Pati, after which we ascend Laurebina (3920 m) for a further 40 minutes. From there, we get fantastic views of the Annapurna, Langtang, and, depending on the weather, Dhaulagiri.

We shall carry on to Gosaikunda, the clearest holy lake in Lauribina. You'll start off your journey with a gradual climb. Now, you will view Gosaikunda Lake for the first time when you cross a short ridge. Saraswatichandra, Bhairav Kunda, and Gosaikunda are the three biggest lakes in the Gosaikunda area. You can see the entire lake as you get closer to Gosaikunda. The region is well-known for its "Janai Purnima" celebrations; Gosaikunda is visited annually by thousands of pilgrims during the August full moon. The hike is particularly special since it offers views of a frozen lake that is unmatched in the winter and grassland.

We return to Dhunche via Singompa, then take the trail to the left of Singompa. The trail descends steeply from here, passing through picturesque villages and a military camp where you must present your permits. On the way down to Dhunche in the spring, we can pick up a lot of wild berries. Overnight stay at a lodge with full-course meals

In the morning, we'll take public transportation (a Jeep or microbus) to Kathmandu. The path takes us through a valley with a lush green forest and a few scattered villages. We will arrive in Kathmandu by the end of the day, and you will check into your hotel.

We'll drop you off at the airport, say our final goodbyes, and send you on your way. We can make arrangements for you to continue your treks or activities.
