We start a guided tour of several of the most historical and spiritual attractions in Kathmandu. Some of these landmarks are considered World Heritage Sites including the historic Durbar Square, the sacred Hindu temple of Pashupatinath, the famous ‘Monkey Temple’ (Swayambhunath) and the Buddhist shrine (Bouddhanath) which is one of the largest stupas in the world. At noon, there will be a pre-trip discussion where we can meet our trek leader and other team members. Himalayan Glacier briefs us regarding our trek as well as provides us with an opportunity to ask any questions we may have regarding our upcoming adventure. Overnight stay in Kathmandu.

Day 3: Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi:

We leave Kathmandu in the morning for Syabrubesi, a village which is also a starting point for treks into the Langtang valley. Our journey will be on a winding road through frequent switchbacks. On a clear day, we get to enjoy outstanding views of Manaslu, Annapurna and Ganesh Himal. We continue until we descend to the small village of Syabrubesi, the starting point of our trek. Overnight stay in Syabrubesi.

Day 4: Syabrubesi – Gatlang Trek:

From Syabrubesi, we hike across the Goljung Village enjoying views of the Ganesh Himal, Shishapangma, Langtang Lirung and others. Gatlang is a small village on the hillside with traditional stone houses. Overnight stay at Gatlang.

Day 5: Gatlang – Tatopani Trek:

We begin today’s trek with a descent to Thangbuche and soak in magnificent views of the Ganesh Himal and Langtang Ranges along the way. Next, pass by the Chilime Hydropower dam and ascend until Tatopani. The name Tatopani literally means ‘hot water’ in Nepali owing to the natural hot springs there. However, the hot springs are no longer there after the earthquake that hit Nepal in April 2015.

Day 6: Tatopani – Thuman via Brimdang and Nagthali Trek:

Today we trek from Tatopani to Thuman via Brimdang and Nagthali. Passing through the dense alpine forest, we reach the small Tamang settlement of Brimdang. From here, it’s a few hours’ walk uphill until Nagthali hill. Here, we enjoy the mesmerizing views of Langtang, Sanjen, Kerung and Ganesh Himal. Next, trek downhill to the Tamang village of Thuman and spend the night.

Day 7: Thuman – Briddim Trek:

We trek to Briddim from Thuman via Lingling. Briddim is a Tibetan Buddhist village, ideally located on the lap of the Langtang Himal. Here, we visit the Dukchu Gomba monastery. In Briddim, we notice that most of the houses are built by stones and are inhabited mostly by people of Tibetan origin. Briddim in fact resembles a typical Tibetan village on this side of Tibet.

Day 8: Briddim – Lama Hotel Trek:

We trek from Briddim to Lama Hotel. The trail descends to Ghopche Khola which is a small stream. Then we ascend to Lama Hotel via Rimche. Lama Hotel is located on the banks of the Langtang River and is surrounded by lush forests and an amazing mountain vista. Overnight stay in Lama Hotel.

Day 9: Lama Hotel – Langtang Village Trek:

We embark on our trip to the Langtang Village. Our trail continues alongside dense forests. After climbing up steadily through the valley, we leave the tree line behind us. On the way, we also enjoy the marvellous views of Langtang Lirung, and pass by water mills, prayer wheels and chortens adorned with sacred mounds of rocks with inscriptions carved on them.

Day 10: Langtang Village – Kyanjin Gompa Trek:

We leave Langtang village and walk through yak pastures.  Today, we also pass the largest mani wall in Nepal which is made from stone with prayers written on them. It is believed that the prayers on the mani wall spread around by blowing winds. We cross several wooden bridges before reaching Kanjin Gompa which is beautifully surrounded by the mighty Himalayas. We can take a walk around the Kanjin Gompa enjoying astounding views of glaciers, icefalls, birds and yaks.

Day 11: Kyanjin Gompa – trek back to Lama Hotel:

We trek back to the Lama Hotel. Since the trek is only downhill, it will only take us around 4 to 5 hours to reach our destination. It is a downhill trek through forests and alongside a beautiful mountain river. On the way, we pass through the ethnic settlements of the Tamang people whose religious and cultural practices are similar to the Tibetans. Overnight stay in Lama Hotel.

Day 12: Lama Hotel – Syabrubesi Trek:

Today is the last day of trekking. After breakfast, we trek down to Syabrubensi which will be an easy trek through lush green vegetation. After reaching Syabrubesi, we enjoy lunch and celebrate the completion of our trek.
