Your overnight stay takes place in a cozy teahouse in Syabrubesi.

Day 2: Trek to Lama Hotel

Our day starts with an early breakfast. Then, our knowledgeable guide will offer a detailed overview of the day's itinerary and the path ahead.

The trail from Syabrubesi to Lama Hotel unfolds as a captivating and moderately challenging journey. We'll then descend toward the Bhote Koshi River, crossing it via a suspension bridge.

Once across, the trail gradually ascends amid thick rhododendron and bamboo forests. Following the Langtang River for a significant stretch, you'll be treated to tranquil riverside vistas. Upon reaching the Langtang Khola, the journey continues upstream. Transitioning through the villages of Pairo and Bamboo, the riverside ambiance accompanies your way.

A bridge crossing and a passage through Rimche will then lead us to a forested ascent toward the village of Lama Hotel. Approximately 5–6 hours of trekking culminate in our arrival at Lama Hotel.

Once here, we'll take the time to unwind, bask in the serene ambiance, and rejuvenate. As night falls, you'll find accommodation and warmth in a cozy tea house at Lama Hotel.

Day 3: Hike to Kyanjin Gompa

On our 3rd trekking day from Lama Hotel to Kyanjin Gompa will be full of captivating panoramas of the surrounding mountains.

The initial phase of the journey will involve an ascent through forests adorned with rhododendron blooms and towering pine trees. The path occasionally reveals glimpses of the majestic Langtang Lirung (7,227 meters) and neighboring peaks. Exiting the forest, the route closely follows the Langtang Khola river.

As we traverse onward, we'll encounter the village of GhodaTabela, a perfect spot to take a brief respite. The terrain transitions to vast yak pastures and expansive meadows. We'll pass through the village of Thangshyap before ultimately arriving at Kyanjin Gompa.

After about 3-4 hours of trekking, we'll reach Kyanjin Gompa, a serene village adorned with a renowned monastery, fluttering prayer flags, and a notable cheese factory.

Day 4: Kyanjin Ri Expedition

Our ascent to Kyanjin Ri usually kicks off in the early hours of the morning, typically between 4:30 AM and 5:00 AM, in order to capture the sunrise.

During our ascent, we'll catch glimpses of Langtang Lirung, Langshisa Ri, Dorje Lakpa, and other snow-crowned peaks.

Upon returning, we'll enjoy breakfast at the tea house. After, we'll set out on the trail back to Langtang Village. Following the same path we ascended to Kyanjin Gompa, the trail will guide us downward. After an approximate total of 7-8 hours of trekking, including the Kyanjin Ri hike, we'll be back in Langtang Village.

Today's trek will leads us through a descent along Langtang Valley. This path crosses through lush forests and suspension bridges that span the Langtang Khola.

A well-deserved lunch break will await us at a designated teahouse along the route.

The journey then continues toward Syabrubesi. As we draw near to Syabrubesi, the Bhote Koshi River reappears on our path. This leg of the trek lasts approximately 5 hours, leading us back to Syabrubesi, which both marks the starting and ending point of the Langtang Valley trek.

In the evening, we'll commemorate the triumphant completion of the trek with a celebratory dinner at the teahouse in Syabrubesi.

What people are saying about Welcome Nepal Treks



Had a great trip to Everest Base Camp. Everyone involved did their best to make it the perfect experience and I can confidently recommend this service to others!



The trip was sensational - would recommend to anyone. Explore share was simple and easy to use and everyone we dealt with was super friendly and accomodating.



We had an amazing Mardi Himal trek. We booked last minute and we were dealt with promptly and professionally. The trek was fully customisable including a stay in a lovely hotel and bus rides to and from Kathmandu. Our guide Amir was awesome and made our trek everything we wanted. Thank you so much!



We hebben echt genoten van onze trekking naar ABC. Jammer genoeg waren er echter overal problemen met de kamer. We hebben dan expres via een agency geboekt en meer betaald, zodat we zeker een kamer overal zouden krijgen. Dit bleek dan een probleem te zijn, omdat er niets op voorhand was geboekt. Ook hebben we last minute (letterlijk 5 min voor de 1e ontmoeting) een bericht van Hari gekregen dat we een andere guide zouden krijgen. Hierbij kregen we geen uitleg. De nieuwe guide had geen EHBO kit mee en wist ook helemaal niet wat allemaal inbegrepen was in onze boeking. Dit was opzich geen probleem, maar het leek plots allemaal niet meer zo goed georganiseerd als het beloofde te zijn. Ondanks dit hebben we echt wel genoten van onze tocht en zijn we blij dat we het gedaan hebben.
