Upon arrival in Kathmandu, Tribhuwan International Airport, we will receive you with private vehicle and transfer to hotel in Kathmandu with breakfast plan. Our representative will give you information about further programs.
After breakfast the day will start to our guided trip to cultural world heritage sites in Kathmandu valley; including visits to the pilgrimage sites of Hindus Pashupatinath temple, the world biggest Boudhanath stupa, visit Swayambhu mark as a monkey temple and historical Kathmandu Durbar Square with the temple, unique architectures and Kumari (living goddess) in central Kathmandu. In the evening, introduce with our fellow trekking staff for your adventure trek briefing.
At morning we’ll drive on a northern highway that twists and climbs over mountain ridges to the Trishuil valley for lunch and on to Syabru village for the overnight. Now the road way is fully black topped. The amazing bus drive takes maximum 7 hrs through picturesque landscapes, mountain scenery and local villages.
After breakfast, trek ascends through the forest followed by a climb to reach Bamboo village. Bamboo is located on the langtang river bank at an altitude of 1,850 meters. This forested path with well establish trails and following upstream and can be seen bird’s life around the bushes. Beehives hanging on a cliff are another attraction for the visitors. From here we’ll again steeply climb through the bamboo forest to reach the Lama Hotel where we’ll stay overnight.
From Lama Hotel, the trail leads through a forest of hemlock, oaks, maples and rhododendron observing glimpses of Langtang Lirung, reaches to Gumanchok (2800m). Climb to Ghora Tabela (2,970m) and further ascends to Thangshyap (3,140m/10,300 feet). On the way, there is an entrance checkpoint where entrance fees are collecting by the Military. The trail goes further climbs to Langtang village, was totally collapsed in 2015 after the massive earthquake disaster. Beautiful Langtang National Park entrance check post stays here so if you haven’t paid the langtang national park fees, you can pay here.
The trail climbs gradually to Sindum and to Yamphu (3640m) to Mundo. Crossing the Laja Khola then climbs a moraine to a viewpoint where you can see Kyanjin Gompa and the dramatic icefall flowing from Langtang Lirung and Kinshung. As you climbed the hill, walk little down to reach kyanjin gompa lodges. You might go further to the Langtang glacier – langtang river and its origin.
Explore around the Langtang Lirung glacier and dry Himalayan Yak pasture. We need to take a packed lunch as a full day hike takes about 7 hours roughly to get Tsergo Ri. We climb to Tsergo Ridge hill only if the weather is clear with a blue sky. In clear weather, you can see the stunning mountain vista like Langtang Lirung, Ganjala Chuli, Yala peak, Dorje Lakpa, and many other summits in a row.
Check about the Yala peak climbing gears. Begin your Yala base camp hiking and set up campsite to say overnight. Gokyo Treks Nepal expert climbing guide will give you instruction how to use climbing gears for next days adventures. It helps you to get summit and descend to base camp.
There is no guarantee that we can get quite a favorable weather on our planned day for the summit, so this day is used as a contingency in case if we are unable to submit or some other reasons. If the weather gets exceptionally unfavorable we wisely have to postpone the program reach summit. If the trip goes smoothly, we do not need this spare day.
From base camp descend to Ghoda Tabala passing Kyanjin gompa and langtang villages, following the Langtang Khola to Langtang village and on to Ghora Tabela.
The upper part trek route is more beautiful for the panoramic view of mountains and green hill views. This path is broader and remains sunny through the different Sherpa and Tamang villages. The first half part of the trail is gradually down and then the trail does steeply descent to the Syabrubesi (1,600m/5,248 feet.). Nowadays, Syabrubesi bazaar is very popular because of a connecting highway to kerung border, Tibet.
Drive back to Kathmandu by Kerung Deluxe Yatayat bus which takes about 7 hours to get Kathmandu city center.
Drop you in Kathmandu International Airport onward your final destination and our trip ends. Wish you your wonderful journey!!!
