In the morning, you begin the drive to Sybrubensi to the north of Kathmandu. As the drive progresses, you get the views of the green forests and faraway mountain vistas. The drive takes you up to Trishuli Bazaar on a smooth road and then follows the gravel road all the way to Syabrubensi.
The trek begins by crossing the Bhotekoshi River and follows Langtang River. The trail follows stone steps paved outside of town and then crosses a suspension bridge. You gradually ascend to Bamboo passing over landslide area and then pass through the pine and oak forests. You might see langur monkeys and red pandas in the forests. Up ahead, the trail ascends gently and takes you to Lama Hotel.
The trail gradually ascends over Langtang Khola providing picturesque sights of Langtang Lirung (7227m). You cross a log bridge and arrive at the meadows of Ghodatabela. The trail then follows a valley of yak pastures and scattered Tamang villages and, ultimately, leads up to Langtang Village. The village also reflects the growing influence of Tibetan culture in the northernmost Langtang villages.
Leaving Langtang behind, you walk ahead and climb a ridge topped by a large chorten. Up ahead, you come across a large Mani wall which is the largest one in the entire region. After taking a short break at Mundu village, you cross several streams and moraines. Soon, you can see the Kyanjin Gompa and the dramatic icefall falling from Langtang Lirung (7227m) and Kinshung (6781m).
As you have quickly gained high altitude in a short amount of time, you take this day to adjust to the high altitude. You can hike up to Tsergo Ri (4,984 m) and witness the panoramic views of the Langtang mountains. Alternatively, you can also walk to Langshisha Kharka and view the glaciers originating from the Langtang ranges.
Leaving Kyanjin Gompa, you walk along the rocky glacier trail. As you move ahead, you can admire the views of Naya Kanga (5,844 m) and Yala Peak (5,500 m). On the trek, you also leave the tree line and continue along the Langtang River for a few hours. Upon arrival at the base camp, you set up the tents and then perform a few exercises and climbing drills.
The climb to the summit starts early in the morning. It’s a seven hour trip with plenty of time to relax after reaching the summit. The climb to the top of the peak is also relatively easier when compared to other peak climbing destinations. After conquering the summit, you can spend some time enjoying the panoramic vistas that lie ahead of you. The Himalayan grandiose includes peaks like Shisha Pangma (8013m), Langtang Lirung (7227m), and Dorje Lakpa (6966m) among others. Then, you walk back to the base camp and rest.
