  • Very few treks in Nepal going as high as the base of Himalayas can be completed within a short time, and that too with a gradual, less-demanding walk. Trek to Langtang valley and Kyanjing Gompa falls under the category. Starting from Syabrubesi and pausing for stopovers at exclusively Tibetan settlements, the trek passes initially through dense forest before segueing into an idyllic mountain valley.

  • Day 01: Welcome to Nepal
    Upon your arrival at the international airport of Kathmandu, you will be greeted by our representatives whom you will find carrying a placard with your name imprinted on. Subsequently, you will be escorted to your hotel. This is your free day; if your plane lands earlier in the day, you will have at your disposal enough activities to indulge in.
    Overnight stay at Kathmandu. Breakfast is included.

    Day 02: Kathmandu Sightseeing
    On the second day, you will explore major attractions of Kathmandu valley. Our city guide will meet you at your hotel at 9:00 AM to pick you up for the sightseeing tour. The observation sites include Swoyambhunath aka the monkey temple; Boudhanath, the holy shrine of Tibetan Buddhists; Pashupatinath, the largest religious complex in Nepal and Hanumandhoka Durbar square, one of the medieval royal plazas of the valley.
    Overnight stay at Kathmandu. Breakfast and welcome dinner is included.

    Day 04: Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1,462 m)
    You will embark on the journey along hilly highway which first descends down to a temperate river basin and then climbs up towards cooler region. In about 6 hours you will easily get to Dhunche, the capital of Rasuwa district which accommodates the Langtang national park. Syabrubesi is the next stopover from Dhunche which teems with hotels and teashops.
    Overnight stay at Syabrubesi; 3-course meal is included.

    Day 05: Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel (2482 m)
    Approximate altitude gain: 1020 m The trail from Syabrubesi follows Langtang Khola river in a parralel fashion, and passes through dense forests of rhododendron, bamboo and adler. You need to cross a few suspension bridges en route to Lama Hotel; the place must have got its name from a supposedly renowned inn-keeper with the surname Lama. Expect some taxing walk on the first day.Overnight stay at Lama Hotel; 3-course meal is included.

    Day 06: Lama Hotel to Langtang Village (3425 m)
    Approximate altitude gain: 1057 m
    The vegetation starts thinning and the vista opens out as you progress towards Langtang, the valley of yaks. The terrain undergoes a remarkable change: trees convert into bushes; shrubs convert into grasses. The snow-clad peaks, high rocky cliffs and waterfalls seem to work ensemble in adorning the whole atmosphere. You will pass a water driven mani wheel to enter into Langtang, a village with Tibetan influence.
    Overnight stay at Langtang; 3-course meal is included.

    Day 07: Langtang to Kyanjing Gompa (3870 m)
    Approximate altitude gain: 1057 m
    This is the shortest day of your trek. Starting early, you move along the route that flattens out making your walk much easier. You will also pass a few chortens on your way which you need to keep at your right (clockwise fashion) irrespective of your belief; the locals are offended if anyone crosses these shrines in the opposite way. You are also likely to bump into intimidating yaks and horses that seem to cover the whole path; but don’t worry, they are docile and harmless.
    You will arrive at Kyanjing village, the seat of Kyanjing Gompa monastery, in plenty of time. Instead of scattered teahouses at a considerable distance like you noticed in the previous stopovers, here in Kyanjing the houses are clustered together giving an impression of a community. The teashops here are equipped with electricity, and some of them even have the facility of telecommunications.
    There is a Yak cheese factory nearby catering to the cheesy needs of Kathmanduites; you can buy cheese at a considerably lower price from here than you do at Kathmandu. There is also a bakery run by a local worth visiting viz. Dorje Bakery Café and Coffe shop.
    Overnight stay at Kyanjing Gompa; 3-course meal is included.

    Day 08: Kyanjing Gompa excursion; Kyanjing Gompa to Lama hotel
    The main attractions of Kyanjing are excursion to the knolls in the vicinity. Of 3 hills, the most popular is Tserko Ri(4900 m) which offres the best sights of the peaks around. The smaller one Kyanjing Ri(4700 m) can also be hiked to instead of Tserko Ri, but Yala Peak(5500 m) requires camping and special gears. Although you will get sweaty due tothe sun and internal heat during your ascent, you should bring a warm covering, preferably jacket, as the wind blows fiercely at the top. After delighting in the wonderful views of mountains, notably the Langtang peaks, you will descend down to your hotel from where you will be heading towards Lama hotel for the stopover.
    Overnight stay at Lama Hotel; 3-course meal is included.

    Day 09: Lama Hotel to Syabrubesi
    You will retrace the route to Syabrubesi that passes through the same forest; the only difference is that you will be climbing down this time. Due to the apparent comfort in walking downhill compared to uphill, many trekkers are enticed of descending briskly that often leads to sore foot or sprained ankles. To avoid this, you must take your time while climbing down. You will easily get to Syabrubesi in an easy 5-6 hour’s trek.
    Overnight stay at Syabrubesi; 3-course meal is included.

    Day 10: Syabrubesi to Kathmandu
    You will drive back to Kathmandu via the same, mostly paved hilly highway. After getting back, you will have a free time until late afternoon when you will be relaxing for the next few hours with our exclusive farewell treat — Yoga and meditation session. Following welcome tea, short briefing, and half-an hour rest, you will attend 1 hour meditation session from 7:00 to 8:00 PM. After dinner break, you will also benefit from Trataka or Special Memory practice before reposing in a deep, relaxed slumber.
    Overnight at Kathmandu. Breakfast and farewell dinner is included.
