About the trek: This is one of the most accessible and magical trek that starts from Kathmandu to the north. Langtang was badly affected by the earthquake in April 2015. Now all have been renovated and lives are normal and you can enjoy this fascinating place. Langtang has over 70 glaciers of varying sizes, the Langtang and Ganesh Himal mountain ranges, and high-altitude lakes including Gosainkunda, Parvatikunda, Bhairavkunda, and Dudhkunda are popular. The people in this place are mostly of Tamang and Tibetan origin, whose culture goes back to hundreds of years. The craftsmanship, dress, traditionally-built stone houses, and the beautifully carved wooden porches reflect their rich Himalayan heritage. Located about 30 km toward the north of Kathmandu near the Tibetan border, Langtang that extends from east to west, it is bordered with Tibet. The chain of Himalayas on this part are dominated by Langtang Lirung (7,245 m), the highest peak in the area. The south sides are domineered by Chimse Danda (ridge), crossed by the Ganja La pass (5,122 m), and Jugal Himal, culminating in Dorje Lakpa (6,989 m). Glaciers spawned by the slopes of Dorje Lakpa, Langtang Lirung and other peaks feed the Langtang Khola (river). The Langtang River passes through the high, gentle Langtang Valley before emptying in a raging torrent into the Bhote Kosi River through a long, narrow defile at the west end of the valley.

Wheat, maize, potato, soybean, and millet are their staple food.

Day 06: Climb Tsegori Peak (5000m)- 6 hours walk - Lodge/Tea house accommodation

This is a great day trip that takes you just under five thousand fifty meters to a top of a peak that gives a 360 degree view of the Langtang valley. The climb is also one of the more challenging day trips, taking anywhere from three to four hours to ascend depending on your fitness, the effect of elevation on you and the trail conditions. The ascent starts out rather straight forward, pushing up an adjacent smaller peak, and then rounding to the back side of Tsergo Ri. This is where the trail gets a bit more difficult as it requires you to climb over a number of boulders and rocks, sometimes at a strong upward angle. The top of Tsergo Ri is a very pleasant spot with plenty of space. Plenty of prayer flags and polls add to the atmosphere and you can make out Kyanjin Gompa and other nearby features far below you. Most stunning of course is the excellent mountain panorama that unfolds before you, allowing you a really stunning view.
