Trip Itinerary

The 8-9 hours long drive north from Kathmandu passing by Kakani, Ranipauwa, Trishuli, and Dhunche will bring you to Sybrubensi. The journey is scenic, and you will pass through several small towns and villages along the way. The road winds up and down, and you will cross several rivers and streams. The road is bumpy and can be quite rough in some places, so be prepared for a long and uncomfortable ride. As you get closer to Sybrubensi, you will notice the landscape becoming more mountainous and rugged. You will see several snow-capped peaks in the distance, and the air will become cooler and fresher. Once you reach Sybrubensi, you can check into a tea house or a guest house and rest for the night. Sybrubensi is a small town located at an altitude of 1460m, and it serves as the starting point for the Langtang trek. It is a beautiful place surrounded by lush green forests and mountains, and you can spend the evening exploring the town and enjoying the views. 

The trail passes by the suspension bridge over Bhote Koshi River and you reach an area of settlements and school which is the old Sybrubensi. Then you follow the trail up to Bamboo where you take a lunch break. As you leave Bamboo and cross Langtang Khola, you can notice the vegetation beginning to get sparse. You ascend up to Upper Rimche and then proceed towards Lama Hotel. Overnight in Lama Hotel. 

You will continue to walk up through the rocky terrain with plenty of waterfalls along the way. After leaving Lama Hotel, you will continue your trek through the forest until you reach Ghoda Tabela, where you will take a break and have some refreshments. From Ghoda Tabela, the trail gradually climbs up towards Langtang village. Langtang village is a traditional Sherpa village that was severely affected by the earthquake in 2015. The village has since been rebuilt, and you will have an opportunity to explore the village and learn about the local culture and traditions. From Langtang village, the trail climbs up steeply towards Mundu. As you trek towards Mundu, you will get stunning views of the Langtang range. You will also pass through yak pastures and come across several small streams along the way. Once you reach Mundu, you can rest and take in the beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Mundu is a small settlement with a few teahouses where you can spend the night. 

On this day you will leave Mundu behind to arrive one of the most important landmarks of the trek. As you leave Mundu, the trail gradually climbs up towards Kyangin Gompa. You will pass through yak pastures and see several small streams along the way. The trail offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains, including Langtang Lirung, Langtang Ri, and Dorje Lakpa. Once you reach Kyangin Gompa, you can rest and explore the area. Kyangin Gompa is a small settlement with a monastery and a few teahouses. You can visit the monastery and learn about the local Buddhist culture and traditions. Along the way, you will see many prayer flags and wheels, and small prayer houses that people have built. The Buddhist culture can be felt so deeply here. Overnight at guest house 

The rest day at Kyangin can be utilized in two ways; either by relaxing amidst nature or by taking an excursion trip from Kyanjin Gompa either to Kyangin Ri (4773m) or Tserko Ri (4984m). Ascending northward from Kyanjin Gompa for about 2-3 hours will reach you to Kyanjin Ri which is an excellent viewpoint for the vista of Langtang Lirung (7234m), Kinshung (6781m), Yansa Tsenji (6567m), Dorje Lhakpa (6966m), Gangchempo (6386m), and Langshisha Ri (6427m).
