Day 02 : Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi
After breakfast we will drive out of Kathmandu Valley along the north-westerners road. En route, enjoy the views and see lifestyle in the hills - with terraced fields and isolated villages. Stop for lunch, then drive to Dhunche and continue on to Syabrubesi.
Day 03 : Trek from Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel
Syabrubesi is the start of our trek. After breakfast, we we will first trek along Langtang Khola, then pass through a dense forest. Along the way we will also cross several raging rivers on suspension bridges. After a brief stop here we trek along the ascending trail until we arrive at Lama Hotel where we’ll stay for the night.
Day 04 : Trek from Lama Hotel to Langtang
A quick breakfast, and we start the day with a gentle walk through a tropical forest, waterfalls, and a pasture. After a brief stop, we will then ascend through the trail to arrive at a valley from where we will have splendid views of Langtang Lirung. Trek through some settlements and some chortens, a mani wall (probably Nepal’s largest), and arrive at the Valley where we will have an overnight stay.
Day 05 : Trek from Langtang to Kyanjin Gompa
Starting at a leisurely pace, we will leave Langtang Valley and head towards Kyanjin Gompa. A ‘gompa’ or ‘gumba’ as it is called in the local language, is a Buddhist monastery. Kyanjin Gompa, at an altitude of 3,870 meters, is a picturesque monastery located in an equally beautiful village. The climate is great, as is the scenery around. The short trekking duration today means that we will have arrived at Kyanjin Gompa before lunch. Enjoy the lunch with panoramic views of Mt. Dorje Lakpa (6,990 meters), Langtang Peak (6,370 meters), and Langtang Lirung (7,245 meters).
Day 06 : Acclimatization at Kyanjin Gompa
We have set the day aside for acclimatization. After a leisurely breakfast, we will take a walk around the village, see some meadows and hike around a bit. During acclimatization, moderate activity is important for the body to get attuned with the environment and the altitude. We will climb up to Langshisha Kharka, for wonderful vista of the surrounding peaks such as Kyanjin-Ri and Tserko-Ri. Later, return to Kyanjin Gompa and visit the cheese factory there. Stay overnight here.
Day 07 : Trek from Kyanjin Gompa to Lama Hotel
Leaving behind Kyanjin Gompa, we will head back to Lama Hotel. The trek is easy but it is mostly downhill, so tread carefully. The six-hour walk back to Lama Hotel is mostly through forests, rivers, and Tamang villages.
Day 08 : Trek from Lama Hotel to Thulo Syabru
From Lama Hotel, we will start after breakfast. We will be walking for around six hours at a leisurely pace today to arrive at the village of Thulo Syabru. The easy downhill trail will first pass through lush green forests, and overhead, you will have beautiful views of the mountains. You might even encounter wild animals but do not try to feed them or go near them. Later, climb to the top of a ridge where Thulo Syabru is located.
Day 09 : Trek from Thulo Syabru Thulo Barkhu to Dhunche and Drive to Kathmandu
Start the trek through a descending forested route to arrive at a gushing river. Climb the trail beside a river and come to a Sherpa village. Take a break here and then trek further through fields, farmlands, and gradual ascents and descents to arrive at Thulo Barkhu. This village has good views of several peaks. From here take a scenic drive back to Kathmandu via Dhunche. Later in the evening in Kathmandu, you are invited for a farewell dinner from Orbit Alpine.
Day 10 : Departure from Kathmandu
