We highly recommend opting for a 4-wheel drive Jeep instead of the local/tourist bus when embarking on the Langtang Trek. Our company provides experienced drivers and well-maintained 4W Jeeps that offer a comfortable, safe, and less daunting journey.
The journey begins with an early breakfast and a picturesque drive from Kathmandu towards Syabru Besi, situated in the northern region. The road, although at times roughshod, is a beautiful sight to behold, and the landscape changes with the season. On our way, we pass through Trisuli Bazaar, where the Indian Technical Mission completed the dam and hydroelectric project.
As we drive on, the scenery of the Trishuli River, the Ganesh Himal, and the rolling green hills is a feast for the eyes. We pass through Dhunche, and the road takes us towards the deep, unexplored regions, which fills us with a sense of adventure.
Finally, we arrive at Syabrubesi, where we make our first camp and make final preparations for our trek. The town's teahouse lodge is where we will spend the night and recharge our energies for the journey ahead.
Choosing a 4-wheel drive Jeep instead of the local/tourist bus not only provides a more comfortable and safer journey, but it also allows us to enjoy the stunning beauty of the surrounding landscape. So, buckle up, and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime!
After healthy breakfast at our lodge, our trek starts from today. Hope you had a good night’s sleep, because today is going to start with a long climb. For around 2 hours you’ll be ascending up a slew of switchbacks that mark the beginning of our foray into the trail. It’s all worth it when you reach a vantage point with views of Ganesh Himal, the Gosainkunda range and Langtang Lirung. Along the trail you’ll see numerous Buddhist Chortens and mani walls, which all add another dimension to this picturesque landscape. After descending for around 45 minutes we’ll reach the little Tamang village of Goljung, where we’ll stop for lunch. There’s still 2.5 hours until we reach today’s destination, another Tamang village called Gatlang (altitude of 2238m). Besides its obvious cultural richness and stunninglocation, Gatlang also boasts a 100-year-old Tamang monastery and the secret lake, Parvati Kunda. Legend has it that this lake was discovered in ancient times while the King of Gatlang was on his way to find a missing hunting dog. It is now revered by women for its apparent powers of fertility. You’ll reach each of these landmarks after a 45-minute uphill walk.Overnight at Gatlang.

Descend gradually along the ridge to the Bamdang Khola, which turns north along the Chilime Khola until you reach the town of Chilime (around 2 hours walking). After crossing a suspension bridge (always fun) you’ll begin an arduous climb of around 450-metres to the village of Gongang.

A distinct Tibetan influence can be felt in the village, with its Shamanistic beliefs, ancient monasteries and houses covered in woodcarvings.
Today, we walk through rhododendron forests and meadows to reach the Tamang village of Briddim, located in the heart of the Langtang Himal. It will take just over 2 hours of uphill walking. Briddim marks the end of the Tamang Heritage Trail, and is often a highlight for many of our travellers.

Both Tserko Ri and Kyanjin Ri are popular hiking destinations from Kyanjin, and both offer stunning views of the surrounding mountains and glaciers. The choice between the two ultimately depends on your personal preferences and fitness level.
Tserko Ri is the higher peak of the two, standing at an elevation of 4,984 meters (16,352 feet). The hike to Tserko Ri is more challenging and requires a good level of fitness, as the trail is steep and rocky in places. However, the panoramic views from the summit are truly breathtaking, with 360-degree views of the Langtang mountain range and the surrounding valleys.
Kyanjin Ri, on the other hand, is slightly lower at 4,773 meters (15,659 feet), and the hike is generally considered to be less strenuous than Tserko Ri.
