To have some extra time to get ready for the trek, try arriving in Kathmandu during the day or early in the morning. When you arrive at the airport, you will be greeted by our representative and driver. They will accompany you to the hotel. The guide will be there for a coffee meeting to brief you about your treks and let you know about necessary items or treks. Examine your equipment and clothing. If necessary, do some last-minute shopping to make sure you have all the gear and accessories.
To get to the start of the trek, take a long, scenic drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. We will start our journey after breakfast. Enjoy mountain views, terraced fields, and rivers while driving. As you pass through Dhunche, you have the impression that you are entering deep land.
The first part of the trail crossing Bhote Koshi and follows the Langtang Khola. This path gradually rises to Bamboo while passing through the landslide area. Following that, your trek ascends gently to Rimche (2400 meters) via Bamboo (1960 meters), which is located on the bank of Langtang Khola. If you want, you can have lunch here. Finally, your path connects with the Lama Hotel. If you were lucky, you might see red pandas, monkeys, and bears along the way.
The trail follows Gumanechok; Ghoda Tabela refers to it as "the horse stable." Following this, the trail is slightly more gradual and scenic in the valley with the grazing yaks. Langtang village is one of the more remote and historic villages along this trek, and the views from here become more spectacular as we get closer to the mountain.
Today's walk is shorter but sufficient for acclimatization. The surroundings are also interesting due to the well-known cheese factory. The Langtang Lirung and other peaks surround this lovely valley. A place to explore the valley and climb numerous small peaks. Spend the night at the guesthouse.
It's time to relax and go for a walk today. You can explore the monastery and the cheese factory, hike up the moraine to observe Langtang Lirung's beautiful ice faces and calving glaciers, or climb Kyangjin Ri (4350 meters), this trek's highest point and the point directly behind the settlement, for a breathtaking panorama of the Langtang peaks.
On your way back to the Lama Hotel, you will be treated to a breathtaking view. The Lama Hotel is a lovely downhill hike from Kyanjin Gompa. Enjoy the scenery and the trails that you will see.
