Langtang Valley Trek 2020 detailed Itinerary
Day 1: Welcome to Kathmandu:
In accordance with your flight schedule, we will be at the Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu to extend a warm welcome to you in our beautiful country for the beautiful trip. After exchanging warm welcome greetings at the arrival section, we will lead you to our vehicle to drop you off in our trip hotel. It’s a day at complete leisure, you will be on your own and you can do whatever you want to do for refreshment. But we definitely will be happy to guide you around the city.
Day 2: Preparation and Sightseeing Tour of Kathmandu:
On the second day of arrival, we will be interacting with each other. After early breakfast, every guest needs to arrive at the Company to review their trip so that they can buy and manage the required stuff for their trips. After talking about the trip we will be taking our guest for a cultural sightseeing tour around Kathmandu valley. The destination for sightseeing include Swoyambhunath - the oldest monument in Kathmandu valley, Kathmandu Durbar Square – to see the temple of Living Goddess and other medieval architectural wonders, Pashupatinath – to immerse into Hindu death rites on the bank of a holy river, and Boudhanath – a massive Buddhist shrine considered as the biggest in the world.
Day 3: Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi:
We will leave Kathmandu today on an overland journey to Syabrubesi in the morning. The highway runs winding past several rural towns and heads towards Trishuli bazar. After a break in Trishuli bazar, our road trip heads towards Syabrubesi, the destination for today.
The road trip today brings us an insight into the rural lifestyle in Nepal. The drive along the beautiful Trishuli River gives an idea of the richness of Nepal in natural resources. Fertile farmland on the river plateau, terraced fields, and roadside towns are apt examples to give some glimpses of Nepalese countryside life.
Day 4: Trek Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel :
After having breakfast, we will be checking and questioning our clients if they have any problem regarding the physical state. After finishing up with our packing and stuff, we will set off on an exciting trekking journey today from Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel. We cover the elevation of about 1,000 meters on the very first day of our trek in the Langtang region. The walk introduces us with the mountain cultures of the region and amazing views and landscapes that heighten our excitement about the following trekking days. Although the name, of our destination today, sounds like the name of a hotel, it’s the name of an overnight place in the Langtang Valley trekking route. Lama Hotel serves as an ideal location to spend overnight after a full day of trekking journey in the mountain trail.
Day 5: Trek from Lama Hotel to Langtang Valley :
We will gain another significant elevation level today when we trek to Langtang valley today. Before the devastating earthquake in 2015, trekkers used to stay in the Langtang village itself. But as the village was swept away in a landslide during the earthquake, the settlement has been shifted to a new and safe place.
The walk will bring lots of cultural and spiritual experiences in addition to the natural marvels. Buddhist prayer flags, Mani walls, and chhortens along the trail significantly signal the dominance of Buddhist culture in the region. It’s a beautiful day full of fascinating encounters along the trail.
Day 6: Trek from Langtang Valley to Kyangjing Gompa :
The trek on this day will take us further higher up to Kaynjing Gompa. The beautiful day trek reveals some nonpareil sights to us along the trail. The influence of Buddhism and ethnic culture clearly sets the region apart from the lower region that we traveled through. When we reach Kyanjing Gompa for our overnight stay, we can explore an ancient and beautiful Buddhist monastery, the Kyanjing Gompa. The monastery is one of the most important spiritual sites in the Langtang region.
Day 7: Trek from Kyanjing Gompa to Lama Hotel via Kyanjing Ri:
We will set off on an early morning hike to Kyanjing RI at the elevation of 4,350 meters above sea level. This elevation will put us on the highest altitude of our trek. Kyanjing RI offers a spectacular sight of the panoramic Langtang range. We enjoy the breathtaking view of mountain peaks and beautiful sunrise and hike down back towards Lama Hotel. It’s a long day walk today adding the early morning Kyanjing RI hike to the walk to Lama Hotel.
Day 8: Trek from Lama Hotel to Syabrubesi:
It’s the last day of the trekking portion of this trip. We will trek back down to Syabrubesi today to end the trek. As we will walk back down on the same trail that we took on the way up, we will see the wonders of the place from a different angle and perspective and also will have chance to get closer to the cultural riches of the place. Once we are in Syabrubesi, we will have time to explore this beautiful, small town for the rest of the day as we are staying there overnight.
Day 9: Drive from Syabrubesi to Kathmandu :
We will take a bus ride back to Kathmandu on the same highway. About 7 hours of bus journey brings us to the chaotic civilization of Kathmandu. Once in Kathmandu, we spend leisurely time back in the chaos of the city after so many days of serene mountain air and incredible adventure.
Day 10: See You Again:
As the last day on this trip, we drive you to the airport as per your flight schedule back to home or onward destination.
We definitely hope that you enjoyed the Langtang Valley Trek and hope to see you for another adventure soon.
