Trekking in Langtang region offers an experience not to be found elsewhere. The trails in the region are challenging with long, steep climbs and descents, often moraines. We would have outstanding close-up mountain views in this trek. The trek also offers an opportunity for the trekkers to interact with the local inhabitants. Tamangs are the indigenous inhabitants of this region. The region has well-established lodges along the trail.
It is one of the closest destinations for trekking from Kathmandu. Generally, the region is also quieter than the Annapurna or Everest. Superb clear view of the great peak of Langtang Lirung (7246m.), which dominates the Upper Langtang Valley can be outstanding after the monsoon. In springtime, this is an ideal route for those interested in birds and flowers. Both seasons allow us to reach the glaciers below Langtang Lirung and climb Tsergo Ri for some magnificent panoramas. Our return journey takes us through the spectacular holy lake at Gosainkunda, an important place of pilgrimage, and across the Laurebenayak Pass which brings us to the gentler region of Helambu and finally to the edge of Kathmandu, Melamchi.
Arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA). Upon arrival at the airport, you would be received by our representative and then transfer to hotel.
We take early drive from Kathmandu to Syabru Bensi via. Dhunche (1966m.). We drive through scenic foothills and ridgeline vistas to Dhunche. The first part of our drive up to Trishuli Bazaar is quite smooth. Syabru Bensi is the starting point of our trek. It is a beautiful village stretched out along the ridgeline. Overnight stay at Syabru Bensi.
Today we trek from Syabru Bensi to Lama Hotel (2470m.). The trail goes along the ridge of Syabru's main street and then drop to the Ghopche Khola (2050 m.) and then to Pairo (1810m.).

Having lunch at Lama Hotel, we trek to Langtang village (3430m.) via Ghore Tabela (3000m.) which takes about six hours. We would find some grazing grounds of Yak on the way. The local people bring their livestock for grazing in the high pastures during the summer months. We find a monastery before we reach Langtang Village. We pay our short visit to the monastery and arrive at our destination.
It is our turn to trek from Langtang Village to Kyangjin (3870m.). It takes about three hours to reach there. Our trail climbs gradually through small villages and yak pastures as the valley opens further and the views become more extensive. Kyangjin Gompa is reached after crossing several small streams and moraines. We would visit the cheese factory at Kyangjin Gompa. We would enjoy the panoramic view of Dorje Larpa (6990m.), Langtang Ri (6370m.), Langtang Lirung (7245m.) and many more.
We would acclimatize at Kyangjin Gompa and go for excursion to utilize our time. We would visit the monastery and the cheese factory, walk up the moraine to see the spectacular ice falls and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung or ascend Kyangjin Ri (4350m).

We would follow a rugged trail with dramatic views of Himal Chuli (7893m.,) Manaslu (8156m,) and Ganesh Himal (7406m.). On a clear day, even the Annapurna range can be seen rising up gently behind. To the north, we would see Langtang Lirung. At Gosainkunda, we would see a dozen of lakes. Among them, the major three are Saraswatikund, Bharab Kunda and Gosainkunda. According to a legend, Gosainkunda was created by Shiva when he pierced a glacier with his trident to obtain water to quench his thirst after having swallowed poison.
We would acclimatize at Gosainkunda and go for excursion at our leisure.
rek from Gosainkunda to Lauribinayak Pass (4610m.) to Ghopte (3430m.).

Trek from Tarkeghyang to Shermathang (2621m.) Trekking today is comparatively easier than the previous days as the trail goes through flat land with beautiful forests. On the way, we would penetrate the village called Shermathang where we would visit some ancient monasteries.
