The Langtang valley is aptly called " the valley of glaciers". Here the mountain-scape is spectacular. On either side of valley, mountains rise, soaring into the sky. The valley offers pine forest, slow moving rivers and swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow-capped peaks, grassy downs and meadows strewn with daisies and wild primulas. In the upper part of valley there are snow bridges spanning angry torrents, high passes enveloped in mist, tiny lakes with icebergs floating on them and water of crystalline brightness. There are also high mountains of solid ice.Highlights of the TrekkingBeautiful Langtang valley, breathtaking scenery of Langtang, Dorje Lakpa ranges, Cheese factory, rhododendron, Oak woodland and Tibetan cultures.Fact of The TrekkingDestination: langtang KyanjinGroup Size: Min - 1Minimum altitude: 1467m.Maximum altitude: 3800m.Grade: ModerateSeason: Spring & AutumnAccommodation: LodgeDuration: 11 Days with Kathmandu .Entry : SyabrubensiExit : Dhunche

The road takes a spectacular route, climbing high over the ridges to escape the Kathmandu Valley and providing us with a superb panorama of the Himalaya , including the Annapurnas, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and the peaks of the Langtang region that we will soon become better acquainted with. Day 04 Syabru Besi to Lama hotel [2748M] The trail initially crosses the Bhote Kosi, flowing down from Tibet , literally a few kilometres away, and then gradually climbs up through the sub-tropical forests, teeming with bird-life, to join the trail from Syabru. We then follow the river, climbing through uninhabited forest of oak and rhododendron and maybe catching a glimpse of langur monkeys roaming through the trees. We climb along a steep trail to our camp in the forest. Day 05 Lama hotel to Lantang village [3500M] As we continue climbing there are occasional glimpses of Langtang Lirung between the trees. At Ghora Tabela [3000m], the trail emerges from the forest. Once there was a Tibetan resettlement project here, but now it is a Nepalese army post though it has no permanent inhabitants. The trail continues to climb gently and the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during the summer months. There is a monastery which we can visit shortly before arriving at the village of Langtang , the headquarters of the Langtang National Park . The houses of Langtang and its neighbouring villages are of the flat-roofed Tibetan style, surrounded by stone walls enclosing fields of buckwheat, potatoes, wheat, turnips and barley. Day 06 Langtang village to Kyagjin [3800M] The trail climbs gradually through small villages and yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyangjin. Here there is a small monastery and a government-operated cheese factory. We should arrive at Kyangjin by lunch time allowing time to acclimatise and explore the area. It is a dramatic setting, with snow covered peaks surrounding us in all directions. Day 07 Rest day in Kyangjin A day to rest and explore the area. We can visit the monastery and the cheese factory, walk up the moraine to see the spectacular ice faces and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung or ascend Kyangjin Ri [4350m], directly behind the village, for a breath-taking panorama of the Langtang peaks.
