OverviewOverview

Starting out from Kathmandu by bus to Syabrubesi, our trek begins to the Langtang Himal, taking the direct approach via the Langtang khola. For days of easy walking on good trails, through the dense forest of oak, birch, pine and then rhododendron leads to the tree-line and then to Kyangjin Gompa (3749m). Kyangjin is a splendid base in a beautiful setting of high snowy mountains from which to acclimatise and plan our explorations and climbs of the upper valley.

Good acclimatisation days and be spent exploring the upper Langtang valley, beyond the rich meadows of Langshisa Kharka, first explored by Tilman, when he was probing for routes into Tibet. These upper meadows are rarely visited by trekkers and are home to large herds of thar, the valley ending in a massive wall of mountains, forming the frontier with Tibet.

Crossing to the Chimsedang Lekh and the Kangjal Himal, a ridge of peaks bordering the valley to the south, establish camp below the Ganja La (5,121m). From here there is a possible way to traverse from  Langtang valley towards Helambu region with stunning views of  the great mountains flanking the Langtang valley, including Ganchenpo (6387m), Dorje Lakpa (6990m), Pemthang Karpo Ri (6830m), Langtang Lirung (7245m) and across the border in Tibet rises the huge bulk of Shishapangma (8046m). After the pass of Ganja-la adventure leads to the charming villages of Helambu before ending the trip near Kathmandu.
