Drive to North - East of Kathmandu. It is an interesting journey starting from local bus park to Syabru Bensi, 132 km alongside the river Trisuli, through the undulating landscape, winding road and local villages. This journey takes the whole day due to the narrow roads.
Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the main Himalaya ranges to the north and slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. Langtang Lirung (7246m), dominates the valley to the north, Gang Chempo (6388m) and Naya Kangri (5846m) and Dorje Lhakpa (6966m) protect the east end of the valley. The area was designated as a Nepal’s first National park in 1971.
This high isolated region is inhabited by Tamangs and Tibetan origin Bhotes. There are local lodges with upgraded hydro or solar electricity. People are Buddhist so no killing animal which means only vegetarian meals are served with possible imported meal items. We trek until Kyangjin Gompa (3870m) and go for excursion for an excellent view from Tsergo Ri (4984m).
Optional route: There is another tough route by crossing Ganja la pass (5160m) coming directly to Helambu which is only advisable in certain period for more challenging option.
We return almost same route to Thulo Syabru and turn to Gosaikunda lake. We return via Chandan Bari, visit a cheese factory. Then back to Dunche to catch a bus/jeep to come back to Kathmandu.
Optional route adding a week will be possible to continue to Ghopte, Tharepati, Chisopani until Sundarijal to Kathmandu or via Melamchi Bazaar is also possible.
