"Complete Langtang"

Helambu, Gosaikund y Langtang- 22 days

Crossing Valleys and hills.

Walking from Kathmandu to the amazing Langtang Mountains.

From Sundarijal through the beautiful fields and hills of Helambu to the sacred Gosaikund lake through the Laurebina pass at 4,600m. From there we will cross the Langtang valley “land of yaks” and finally we will reach the Buddhist village of Kyangin Gumpa, at the foot of the Langtang Lirung 7,227m. When we return we can add on the Tamang Heritage trail extending the trekking for 3 more days through an area of ​​incredible cultural value on the border with Tibet.

This route is very complete as you ascend from lower and incredibly green areas to the great mountains of the Himalayas.

The scenery is beautiful from start to finish and the views are spectacular in both valleys. 

We will be able to see Mount Manaslu, all the Ganesh Himal, Rolwaling, Jugal Himal, Gang Chhenpo, Langshisha and even the Annapurna mountain range if the sky is clear.
We have the opportunity to do ascents of 5,000m peaks, such as the Surya Peak or the Tserko Ri, and go up to see the Langtang glacier or the grasslands of Langshisa Kharka, where the yaks graze.

We will enjoy the hospitality of the Hyolmo, Tamang and Sherpa people, being able to take a closer look into their culture and way of life.

As most of the trekking in Langtang takes place below 4,000m, the trail is suitable for hikers of all ages with almost any physical condition.

We will return by bus from SyabruBesi to Kathmandu, about 6 hours.

Of course, we will visit Kathmandu and its monuments declared as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

There is almost no risk of suffering from altitude sickness, since the ascent will be very progressive and with enough time to acclimatize. The days of trekking usually include about 5 hours of walking and generally about 10 to 15 km / day, although there are harder days than others.

We will start the trek in Sundarijal (20 minutes from Kathmandu by bus) and from there we will cross an incredible area of ​​green hills called Helambu. It is a perfect opportunity to learn about the customs and way of life of rural Nepal, since these people do not live from tourism and all continue to work in the fields and with their animals.

Then we ascend to cross the Laurebinya Pass at 4,380m. From there you have excellent views of the Rolwaling (7,181m), the Jugal Himal mountain range with the Shishapangma (8,013m), Gangchenpo (6,388m.), Langshisha Ri (6,427m) and many other snowy mountains. On a good day you even have spectacular views of Ganesh Himal, Manaslu, and the entire Annapurna mountain range.
We descend to the sacred lakes of Gosaikund, and from there we will continue to descend to finally join the Langtang road on the other side of the valley.

We could say that the Langtang area is one of three most popular touristic areas in terms of trekking in the Himalayas.
What makes it more attractive is that in 2 or 3 days you can progressively reach high altitudes and see mountains of more than 7,000m, which in a beauty contest have nothing to envy of the neighboring giants.

After the 2015 earthquake and due to a great avalanche that devastated the town of Langtang, there was a break in this area in terms of tourism. But in a year they recovered the infrastructure for trekking and the survivors, with a lot of outside help and a lot of inner strength, have managed to get everything back to the life of before and everything is perfect to welcome tourists again. This really says a lot about the willpower of this town and the friendships they have forged with foreigners who have ever been there.

The path ascends gently following the Langtang Khola River. Soon we arrive at fabulous green forest areas where you can see a variety of birds and also white-faced langur monkeys and, if you are lucky, some Red Panda. As in almost all the classic routes in Nepal, every hour and a half you cross a town or some guest house where you can stop for lunch or rest. You do not need to carry food, or a tent or mats. This will allow you to enjoy the journey and help the local economy at the same time.

The ascent usually ends at Kyangin Gumpa, the last town you’ll find in this area. From here you can take day trips to see peaks of almost 6,000m and beautiful glaciers.

To finish you can extend your trek for 3 more days ending in the Tamang Heritage area, where you will discover the home of the ancient Tamang ethnic group very close to the border with Tibet.

A fabulous and very complete tour that will make you vibrate with the landscapes while bringing you closer to the ancient culture of its inhabitants.
