In the central Himalayan location, amazing valleys & gorge, traditional culture & Buddhist religion, pristine forest, area of the red pandas,and in the close backdrop of the high Langtang Himalayan range

OverviewOverview

Starting out from Kathmandu by bus to Syabrubensi, we start this trek 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. The group will have enough days to explore further a field and we will move our base camp higher, depending on the objective.

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.

Climbing onto the ridges to the north of the valley we will attempt glaciated peak rising above the Yala Glacier, Yala Peak (5500m). Crossing to the Chimsedang Lekh and the Kangjal Himal, a ridge of peaks bordering the valley to the south, we establish base camp below the Ganja La (5,121m). From here there is a possible summit to climb including Naya Kanga (5844m). All of the peaks are glaciated and offer a variety of climbing challenges amid spectacular Himalayan scenery. All of these summits will provide 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).

Whilst most of the peaks are technically straightforward, to get the most from this trip, it is important that you are a strong hill-walker with previous experience of snow climbing, or at least the completion of one winter courses or similar.

The upper Langtang valley was first explored by Tilman in 1949 and 46 years later still retains a hint of Shangri-La, due to its closeness to Tibet and the un trekked wilderness beyond Langshisa Kharka. Himalaya Expeditions leaders have climbed extensively in the upper Langtang valley and through their enthusiasm and feedback we have developed the Langtang Climbing Camp. The upper Langtang valley has proved to be an ideal location for an alpine style climbing holiday and our aim will be to explore this upper valley, following in the footsteps of Tilman. As well as Naya Kanga, one of Nepal's permitted trekking peaks, there are several peaks that offer a variety of climbing challenges, many with no technical difficulty.
