  2. Day 2: Trek preparation in Kathmandu

     

    If you still have some last minute trek supplies to purchase, our guides will take you to some of the adventure sports store. We’ll head back to the hotel for dinner where the guide will orient you about the trek.

  3. Day 3: Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1,550m/5,100ft): 7-8 hours

     

    We drive towards Syabrubesi in the morning, the starting point of our trek.  The winding road to Syabrubesi is not a smooth ride but it is still enjoyable. On a clear day the route offers spectacular view of Manaslu, Annapurna and Ganesh Himal.

  4. Day 4: Trek from Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel (2,380m/7,830ft): 6 hours

     

    Following the Langtang River, we slowly ascend and descend the route that takes us through thick forest of oak, rhododendron, and bamboo. Keep a lookout for local wildlife in the area such as the wild-throated martens and langoors. These forests are also home two wild boars, red pandas and the Himalayan Black Bear. Upon crossing the suspension bridge over Langtang River, we'll steadily climb the steep trail that leads us towards Lama Hotel.  

  5. Day 5: Trek to Mundu (3543m/11,621ft) via Langtang village: 6-7 hours

     

    Right after breakfast, we'll continue towards Langtang Village. Today's route will takes us through scenic mountain landscape, waterfalls and meadows. After crossing the bridge at the Langtang River, the trail leads to the valley. From here, the trail descends downwards. We'll pass through small settlements, several water mills, prayer wheels, and also a Buddhist monastery before reaching Langtang village. After a short break we'll continue towards Mundu.  

  6. Day 6: Mundu to Kyangjin Gompa (3,870m/12,697ft): 4-5 hours

     

    We start early to head towards Kyangin Gompa, one of the important monasteries of the region. The route passes through several watermills, stones painted with Tibetan Mantras, prayer wheels, mani walls, and sacred mounds of rocks with Buddhist inscriptions. As we near Kyangin Gompa, the splendid view of  Mount Ghanchepo (6,387 m) and Langtang Lirung (7,227 m) becomes clearer. Today's trek is shorter in order to help us acclimatize to the weather. In the afternoon, we'll visit the Kyangin Gompa and its surrounding area.

  7. Day 7: Acclimatization- Explore Tserko Ri (5000m/16,404ft) 7-8 hours

     

    In order to acclimatize, we'll head towards Tserko Ri which is located at a high altitude. The trail first passes through yak pastures before it steadily ascends towards Tserko Ri. The high vantage point at Tserko Ri is a great location to view the sunrise. After spending some time at Tserko Ri, we head down to Kyangin Gompa.

  8. Day 8: Kyangjin Gompa to Lama Hotel: 6-7 hours

     

    Turn around to see the Kyangin Gompa one last time before we head downhill. Retracing our steps back to Lama Hotel, we will walk at a leisurely pace. The route will take us through forest and rustic villages which are inhabited by the Tamang people.  

  9. Day 9: Lama Hotel to Syabrubesi: 4-5 hours
