Do some side seen around Kathmandu then meeting together will consist of an initial meeting and discussion of last-minute preparations. This is the time to pick up anything that may have escaped your home packing list – trekking and mountaineering supplies are readily available in the city.
We hit the road today with a lengthy but scenic drive from Kathmandu to Syabru Bensi, where our trek originates. Our road follows the Trishuli River Valley through pretty Dhunche. White and green are the predominate colors of this trip: distant snow-capped mountains in the background, and verdant hillocks and valleys up close! Upon arrival at Syabrubesi, we’ll check into our teahouse lodging.
Today is our first official day of trekking. After breakfast, we depart from Sybrubesi, following the Bhote Koshi River, which originates in Tibet, and the Langtang Khola. The trail ascends and descends simultaneously through forested route and crosses a bridge over the Langtang Khola (Small River). Later we climb on a steep trail that takes us to popular stopover of Lama Hotel and check into another cozy teahouse for the night.
Another day of vigorous walking is ahead of us as we start seriously ascending up the mountain. The hearty exercise comes with the attendant reward of fantastic scenery as we went our way through forests of pink and white rhododendron, hemlock, and oak high above the Langtang Khola. We’ll pass Ghodatabela as our halfway point, and end up in Langtang Village, the heart of Langtang National Park. The village is rife with flat-topped Tibetan-style lodgings, crop fields, and yak grazing grounds.
A large Mani wall greets us on the initial leg of our trek today, with the small village of Mundu as our first significant landmark. We’ll be treated to the sight of ice flow trickling down multiple mountain peaks as we encounter panoramic Himalayan views. The air is definitely thinner at this altitude, and we’ll be sure to arrive at Kyanjin Gompa nice and early to begin our acclimatization process.
Today’s a day of rest and acclimatization, so we linger in Kyanjin Gompa and adjust to the altitude. The monastery for which the village is named is well-worth a visit, as is the renowned cheese factory. For those willing to stretch their legs, a short hike to Kyanjin Ri (behind the village) affords breathtaking panoramas of the Langtang peaks.
It’s a seven hour hike to the base camp of Yala Peak today, and then we’ll go over some climbing basics in advance of tomorrow’s summit.
We’ll start very early today, our long-awaited adventure day, to make the summit push for the top of Yala Peak! It’s a six hour round trip, with plenty of time at the top to take pictures of the soul-stirring Himalayan panoramas. After, we’ll return back to base camp for the night before starting our descent.
Our descent starts today, as we double back from the Yala Peak base camp to Kyanjin Gompa. You’ll be surprised how the mountain looks different from this perspective.
Take some time, as you’re descending the mountain, to stop and smell the literal flowers. The Langtang region is kissed by an abundance of Alpine flora, with violets, gentian, and edelweiss blooms forming sprawling carpets over the hills. It’s only a four hour trek back to Lama Hotel today, so you’ll have some time to wander the village and explore.
This is our last day on the mountain, and we spend it trekking six hours from Lama Hotel back to Syabrubesi. A notable milestone on our way today will be the Chilime Hydropower Power Plant of Sherpagaon, which powers the surrounding area. This is the land of the Tamang people, and it is a gorgeous one. If you are so inclined, tonight would be a great night to have a farewell party with your trekking group and guides. You’ve been through a lot together!
The time has come, at last, to rest your weary legs – today we drive back to Kathmandu the same way we came. Our return trip will offer your final glimpses of the mountains and all the beauty surrounding them. Upon arrival back in the capital, we’ll bring you back to your hotel for some much-needed relaxation.
