The river, which flows Southwest,is very popular with rafting.Drive further via Dhunche (1970m) which is an attractive village with large stone houses, you get an excellent views of Gheng (6581m) and Langtang Lirung (7246m) to the north and Ganesh (7460m) to the west.Drive along the road descend to trisuli River and to Thulo Bharkhu than steep up to ridge through the pine woods. From here you have fine views up the valley towards the Tibetan border - about 20km away. The trail out of Bharkhu climbs a steep slope to the top of a ridge (2300m) where there is a good area to take a break. This is good place for bird watching. You will entered the Langtang Valley now and you can see Ganesh Himal to the west, Tibet to the north, and Langtang Lirung in the east. You will also be able to see, on a ridge top below you, the lovely village of Syabru. The trail contours around the ridge at first before descending a short steep slope into Syabru (2134m).

Day 03: Ghoretabala (3048m) - Lodge/Tea house accommodation - 7 hours walk

  • Descend through the village of Syabru and continue down the ridge until you come to a trail to the east that drops sharply off the ridge and through a dense forest. Cross a bridge (1960m) over a tributary of the Langtang Khola and then climb for a short distance. The trail continues level for a ways before descending, still in forest, to the Langtang Khola. The trail begins climbing up from the river, shortly after the trail levels off, you join the old Langtang trail (2380m) from Sherpagaon and Syabrubensi. Another hour from this trail junction brings you to the Lama Hotel in the tiny village of Chongong (2400m). From the Lama Hotel the trail climbs steadily to Ghora Tabela with glimpses of Langtang Lirung (7246m) through the trees. At times the trail becomes very steep but only for short distances. Gradually the air becomes thinner and the climate colder. At Ghora Tabela (3048m) the trail leaves the forest and a spectacular view of Langtang Lirung appears. Ghora Tabela was once a Tibetan resettlement camp but is now an army post.

Day 04: Kyanjin Gompa (3811m)- Lodge/Tea house accommodation. 7/8 hrs walk

  • Continue up the valley, leaving the forests behind, the trail ascends steadily up to Langtang village, passing below a monastery about 30 min beforehand. Langtang is an interesting Tibetan-style village with stone- walls enclosing houses and fields where you just might see your first yaks. The Langtang National Park headquarters is located here. After Langtang, you can see a community of typical flat-roofed Tibetan houses and the valley flattens and broadens into open pasture. This is perfect for raising yaks, and you woill see these imposing beasts everywhere. The valley is U-shaped was carved by a glacier. Below Langtang, the valley has the characteristic V-shape of a river-carved valley. Leaving Langtang, you ascend gradually to a chorten (a small Tibetan Buddhist stupa) behind which is a very long mani wall. The trail passes two small villages and the village widens. You cross several streams and a moraine before arriving at Kyanjin Gompa (3800m). Between Langtang and Kyanjin Gompa, the views just get better and better where you will see Yansa Tsenji (6580m) and Kimshun (6750m) to the north and the Langtang Himal to the northwest. Take a good rest and allow your body to acclimatise with the high altitude as much as possible to be fully-prepared for more ascending during the next day.

Day 05: Excursion to Langshisha Glacier 5/6 hours, return to Kynjin Gompa for overnight stay

  • You may hike up the moraine to this north of kyanjin Gompa to an elevation of 4268 meter / 14000 ft. or more, a good long walk that takes you all the way up the valley to where the Salbachum, Lanshisha, and Langtang glacial moraines all converge. To get there you just continue on the trail heading east out of Kyanjin Gompa. You'll follow the valley past the turn off to Tsergo Ri and past the air field. During the walk you only gain about one thousand feet over five or so miles. Along the way you get some great views of the nearby peaks including Dorje Lakpa, and eventually Shisha Pangma, the only 8,000 meter peak in Tibet. Toward the end of the trip you have to start climbing up and around some of the old glacial terminal moraines, though the walking and the trail continue to be quite easy. After this you reach the actual site of Langshisha Kharka, which is marked by a number of poles with prayer flags and a few semi-permanent stone structures. There are excellent views of Langtang Lirung and a close up view of one of major glaciers. A fast descent takes you back to your camp at kyanjin Gompa.

Day 06: Climb Tsegori Peak (5000m)- 5/6 hours - Lodge/Tea house accommodation

  • This is a great day trip that takes you just under five thousand 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. You get a perfect view of Langtang to the west, Yala peak to the north and Dorje Lakpa and Shisha Pangma to the east. You can see very clearly the Ganja La pass through the southern mountains as well.
