The Langtang trail heads east through forests up the Langtang Valley as far as Kyanjin Gompa. Experience the spiritual lifestyle of the Buddhist people here. Their monastery is 700 years old. An early morning hike up Tserko Ri offers huge panoramic views of the High Himalaya along the Tibetan border; plus nearby Langtang Lirung and its glaciers.
Retrace your steps to Lama Hotel before branching southwards and up above the tree line to Thulo Syabru: with magnificent views of the Ganesh Himal to the northwest.Continue to Laurebina and then Gosaikunda, an important pilgrimage site for both Buddhists and Hindus. Marvel at the sunrise over the glistening lakes.
The Gosaikunda trail then rises to the Laurebina La before gradually descending into the Helambu Valley: with terraced farmlands and rice paddies. Numerous Buddhist monasteries dot the countryside. Explore the villages of Kutumsang, Chisopani and Mulkharka. From Sundarijal, a short drive returns you to your Hotel in Kathmandu.
