    Drive to Syabrubensi

    Leaving the Kathmandu Valley we have a long drive ahead (approx. 7-8 hours) - the road condition is poor and so we use jeeps. We drive out of the Kathmandu Valley and head northwards to Trisuli Bazaar. Continuing on, the road climbs to Dhunche and the Langtang National Park before descending to the river where we reach Syabrubensi, a small town at 1,462m where we spend the night.  Teahouse

    Walk to Sherpagoan (2490m), a small village perched on terraces above the Langtang River

    We begin our trek by descending to the river, which we cross by bridge. We then have a steep climb away from the river to Kanjim, where we have lunch. Climbing further, the trail contours around into the main Langtang Valley. We have wonderful views ahead and down to the river. We end today with a short descent to Sherpagoan, a small village perched on terraces high above the Langtang Khola at 2,490m.Teahouse

    Trek through forest to Ghora Tabela (3035m) via Rimche and Chhunama

    We continue up the valley towards Langtang. The walk starts off easily, following an undulating trail through Sherpagoan and into the forest, past Rimche and further on to Lama Hotel; a collection of lodges in a forest clearing. The trail undulates up further through the forest with glimpses of the mountains ahead. We pass Riverside and have lunch a little further on at Chhunama. In the afternoon we have a shorter walk, uphill mostly, to Ghora Tabela (3,035m), where the valley starts to open out. Most of the area around here was destroyed in the earthquake and lodges are just now being rebuilt.Teahouse

    A poignant walk as the trail crosses the debris which engulfed Langtang village in the 2015 earthquake; continue to Kyanjin Gompa (3880m)

    The valley now opens out as we continue our climb. The trail ascends through the few tea houses at Thangshyap and we come to the moraine that was Langtang. Langtang village was destroyed in the earthquake of 2015 and was covered by rock and ice moraine. A path now leads across the moraine, a poignant and sad reminder of the power of nature. Once across the moraine we come to a few newly built lodges and a memorial to those who lost their lives in this valley in the earthquake. Climbing out of Langtang we pass the small settlement of Mundu. The valley opens out now to reveal spectacular mountain views. To our left the impressive Langtang Lirung towers directly above us and ahead is the great snow-covered bulk of Ganchempo. The trail climbs steadily past many prayer walls until at 3,880m we come to the teahouses at Kyanjin Gompa. Once there was only a small cheese factory here but now it is a bustling place with many lodges. Teahouse

    Daywalk to a viewpoint to see impressive peaks and glaciers; option to climb Tsergo Ri (4984m)

    We spend a day at Kyanjin Gompa with a chance to explore the area. There are various optional day walks around here. The most popular walk is up to Kyanjin Ri (4,350m) and Kyimoshung Ri (4,620m). These two viewpoints above Kyanjin Gompa offer some of the most stunning mountain views in Nepal. An impressive array of peaks surrounds us - Langtang Lirung and Kyimoshung, whose huge glaciers tumble to the valley floor. Straddling the Tibetan border are Dorje Lhakpa, Ganchempo and a whole host of 6,000+m peaks whilst across the valley are Naya Kang and the Ganja La pass. For the very energetic there is the chance to climb Tsergo Ri (often written Cherko Ri) – at 4,984m. This is a full day's walk (8-10hrs) but worth it for the views from the top. Another option is to walk towards the Tibetan border and Langshisha, where we get wonderful views of the mountains bordering Tibet.Teahouse

    Retrace our route past Ghora Tabela to Lama Hotel (2500m), a cluster of lodges in the forest

    A long day in terms of kilometres but an easy walk, mainly downhill, with great views down the valley. We leave Kyanjin and retrace our route down past Mundu and across the moraine of Langtang to Ghora Tabela. Heading back into the forest the trail undulates down the valley through Chhunuma and Riverside back to Lama Hotel (2,500m), a small collection of lodges in the forest.Teahouse

    Descend to the river; cross over and continue past Bamboo and Pairo, then climb to the ridgetop village of Syabru (2250m)

    Below Lama Hotel we leave the trail we walked up the valley on and turn off steeply to the left. A rough rocky and narrow trail takes us steeply down to the river and a bridge across the Langtang Khola (2,150m). From here the trail undulates through the forest to Bamboo (1,917m) and further on to Pairo (1,700m) for lunch. After lunch we leave the river and climb steeply for an hour to a small tea shop. From here the trail contours round into a side valley and drops to cross the river by bridge. We then have another steep climb up to Syabru, a village which straddles a ridge (2,250m). There are great views looking back to the Langtang Valley and from just behind the lodges we can see the Ganesh Himal on a clear day.Teahouse

    Steep climb through scrub forest and rhododendron thickets to Sing Gompa

    A short but quite tough walk as we have a long steep climb out of Syabru. We walk through scrub forest and the occasional settlement among the fields, and then through magnificent rhododendron thickets until we reach the top of the ridge at Phoprang Danda,(3,200m), where we have magnificent views of the mountains. After a well-deserved tea break the trail continues on up the ridge, but less steeply now, to the small settlement of Sing Gompa. There are a few lodges here, a small temple and a cheese factory. Red Pandas have been spotted in the forests around here and in the afternoon the energetic can walk up the hill behind the lodge for views on a clear day.  Teahouse

    Spectacular ridge walk to Gosainkund Lake (4430m)

    Today is probably the best day of the trek for amazing panoramic mountain views. Climbing a little less steeply this morning we follow the ridge for most of the day. We will have fantastic panoramic views of the Annapurnas, Himalchuli, Manaslu and Ganesh Himal to the west and Langtang Himal to the north-east. We pass through Cholang Pati (3,620m), where there are a few tea shops and after this we gradually leave the trees behind. Climbing further up the ridge the views are even better as we reach Laurebeneyak (3,950m). We stop for lunch at one of the lodges here with plenty of time to admire the magnificent panorama. In the afternoon we climb further up the ridge and finally we contour round into the next valley. A fantastic path high above the first of the holy lakes. The trail undulates now until we finally reach the third lake, Gosainkund, at 4,430m. This lake is particularly sacred and a place of pilgrimage in the summer. It is said to have been created when the god Shiva, suffering from thirst due to a poison, thrust his trident into the mountainside, whereupon three streams burst forth and ran together to form the lake. We stay close to a shrine by the lake, where there are a few pilgrim shelters. As the sun sets the reflection on the lake is incredible as the lake becomes one shimmering mass of gold. It is a truly magnificent sight.(Please note that in spring season there can be snow on this section)Teahouse

    Cross the Laurebena Pass (4650m) to Gopte (3416m)

    A tough day today as we cross the Laurebena Pass. The trail descends from the lodge past the pilgrim shelters to the lake. We then climb up though bare and rugged terrain, passing four smaller lakes before we reach the summit of the Laurebena Pass at 4,650m. It will take us approximately 2.5hrs to the top of the pass. There are magnificent views to the north and west, and as we descend there are superb panoramic vistas over the Nepal midlands. We now have a steep descent for about 2.5hrs on a rocky trail to Phedi, where we have lunch. After lunch, we still have another 3.5hrs walk. At first, we descend a little but the rest of the afternoon takes us on a roller coaster trail up and down the valley. There are many short steep uphill sections followed by short downhill sections. We are now back in the forest and we finally come to our lodge at Gopte (3,416m).  Teahouse

    Descend the Helambu Valley to Kutumsang, visiting Tharepati (3,650m) en route, from where Mount Everest may be seen on a clear day

    A long day but mostly downhill. The morning starts with a short downhill and then a climb up to Tharepati (3,650m). The climb is well worth the effort for the amazing views from here. Looking north we can see the Jugal and Everest Himals and on a really clear day we can see right across to Everest. After a short break to admire the views we start to descend into the Helambu valley. We continue walking on an undulating path through thick rhododendron forest with a short climb up to lunch at Mangangoth. After lunch it is all the way down to our last night in a teahouse at Kutumsang. There are fine views back to the Langtang and Jugal Himals, and if it is clear other ranges can also be seen.Teahouse

    Trek to Chunauti; drive to Kathmandu

    We leave early this morning and start by descending from Kutumsang down into the valley below. The walk should take us about 4hrs through farms and terraces to the valley bottom at 1,040m. We will meet our transport at Chunauti and from here we drive through Melamchi and back to Kathmandu (approx. 5 hours’ drive). Depending on traffic we should arrive to our hotel in the early evening.Hotel Royal Singi (or similar)

    Free day in Kathmandu

    After the long day yesterday we have a free day to explore Kathmandu. You may want to visit the Durbar Square of Kathmandu, the Buddhist stupa at Boudhanath, the Hindu temple at Pashupatinath or the monkey temple at Swayambhunath. The Thamel District is a good place to explore with its maze of shops and restaurants. There is also the opportunity today to take an early morning scenic Everest mountain flight. This can be booked and paid for locally by your leader. Please read the ‘Optional Excursions’ section below for information regarding flying in Nepal.Hotel Royal Singi (or similar)
