Itinerary

Day 1Arrival in Kathmandu (1,350m/4,428ft)

After landing at the Tribhuwan International Airport, we will be greeted by a representative of Himalayan snow treks & expedition who will drop us off at our hotel. We then check-in at the hotel, freshen up and take a rest. In the evening, a welcome dinner will be hosted by Himalayan snow treks & expedition. Overnight in Kathmandu.

Day 2Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1,550m/5,100ft): 7-8 hours

After having breakfast in the hotel we will drive from Kathmandu in the morning for Syabrubesi, village it is the starting point for treks into the Langtang valley. It takes us 8-9 hours drive. We will rest today in syabrubesi. It’s a long drive so today we will not walk much.

Day 3Trek from Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel (2,380m/7,830ft): 6 hours

After registering and showing permits at Syabrubesi, and crossing the Bhote Kosi river, our second day involves a climb through scenic forests to Changtang, popularly known as Lama Hotel (2480m), via the villages of Doman, Pairo, Bamboo and Renche. We will rest today in Lama hotel.

Day 4Lama Hotel to Langtang (4-5 hours, 980m ascent)

The trail from Lama Hotel rises past small villages in the forest, before emerging into a classic U-shaped glacial valley. Before the quake, permits were checked at the army post just before Thangshyap, but all the settlements between Lama Hotel and Thangshyap were badly damaged by the tremors, and the section of trail beyond was obliterated by a vast landslide, which flattened the villages of Tsarding, Chamki, Gumba and Langtang, formerly the overnight stop for lama Hotel.we will walk for maximum 5-6 hours and reach to langtang village and overnight at langtang village.

Day 5Langtang to Kyanjin Gompa (2-3 hours, 460m ascent)

The trail onwards from Langtang climbs through increasingly rugged country through the small yak-herding villages of Mundu, Sindum and Yampha, eventually tracing the path of the Langtang Khola to Kyanjin Gompa (3870m) we will walk 2-3 hours to reach kyanjin Gompa. overnight at kyanjin Gompa.

Day 6Acclimatization- Explore Tserko Ri (5000m/16,404ft) 7-8 hours

Having reached Kyanjin Gompa, we need a day rest for acclimatization most travelers take a few days to explore the surrounding valleys. One popular trail follows the Lirung Valley, which cuts a dramatic track to the north, framed by a line of peaks along the Tibetan border. Northeast of Kyanjin Gompa, the viewpoint at Kyanjin Ri (4600m) is still spectacular despite the disaster, as is the viewpoint at Tsergo Ri (4984m), a longer day-trip to the east. The two-hour trip to Tsona Lakes is a less energetic alternative.
Side Trip: Langshisha Kharka (6½–7½ hours, 500m ascent, 500m descent)
A more challenging add-on from Kyanjin Gompa is the long day, or overnight camping trek to Langshisha Kharka, a remote summer pasture with eye-popping views of Doje Lakpa (6966m) and Penthang Karpo Ri (6830m). The trail follows the Langtang Khola east up the valley.

Side Trip: Yala Peak (2 days, 1630m ascent, 1630m descent)
Another challenging bolt-on is the two-day return trip to Yala Peak (5500m), a decommissioned trekking peak to the east, accessible as a camping trek from Kyanjin Gompa. No extra permits are required, but you will need camping equipment, basic mountaineering gear (ice-axes, ropes and crampons) and an experienced guide. The route traces the trail to Tsergo Ri before climbing the southern slope of the peak.
