Ever since the 2015 Earthquake that destroyed the Langtang Valley completely, it seemed the Langtang Valley Trek came to an end. But, worry not, this trip is still up and running! With the valley reconstructed at a safer place, the trek to Langtang is completely risk-free and enchanting.
The trek starts off with a long drive to the village of Syabrubesi along the Trishuli River via Dhunche. Start with a hike to the Lama Hotel the next day after getting past the villages of Pahiro, Lower Rimche, and Upper Rimche. Further up sees us at Ghoda Tabela before finally reaching our destination, the Langtang Village. During the 2015 earthquake, the place was devastated and razed but now, the village has again soared some 100 meters from the previous location.
An easy trek from the Langtang Village, which also sits as the center of the Langtang National Park, will mark our arrival at the Kyanjin Gompa. Here lies the largest Mani wall of the country and not to mention, the monastery itself. The next day, at the Kyanjin Gompa, we hike uphill a narrow icy trail to summit the 5000 meters tall Tserko RI. Also, don’t forget the yak cheese factory at the Gompa. While there, also make room for a short visit to the Langtang Lirung Glacier and also a lake nearby. Delight in the snow-capped peaks such as the Langtang Lirung, Langtang RI, Tserko RI, Ganesh and such other peaks. Now, return back to the Lama Hotel and then follow the same rugged trails towards Syabrubesi. Returning to the capital city of the country, Kathmandu with a long drive along the way sees an end to this trip.
Get afar from the concrete jungle and experience the hospitality of the Tamang People alongside typical cuisine and magnificent views!
