meters), where there are excellent views of
Annapurna II, Manaslu and Ganesh Himal, and
descends into the broad Trishuli Valley. After
a long descent through terraced fields, to climbs
onto a plateau and passes fields of mustard,
corn and rice planted in bright red soil. Trishuli
Bazaar is at 548 m. high from sea level with
distance of 72 km from Kathmandu. Further 15
Km drives to Syabru Besi from Dhunche, an interesting
village on the banks of the Bhote Koshi at 1420
meters. From Syabru Besi you can begin the trek
to Langtang and save a day of walking.
Besi to Lama Hotel.
The trail to Langtang ascents along the bank
of Langtang Khola first through terraced fields,
then through forests of oak, maple, alder and
finally bamboo. The trail reached to landslide
at 1550 meters. For the rest of this day and
the following morning, there are few settlements,
but the forest abounds with birds. There is
also a variety of wildlife in the parks forests.
The ascent continues to a steel suspension bridge
at 2000 meters. The route crosses to the north
bank of the Langtang Khola, then climbs alongside
a series of waterfalls. The forest is sparser
and drier on this side of the river, consisting
mainly of scrub oak, as opposed to the damp
forest of large pines on the shady southern
bank. Climb steeply to a landslide and reach
to Rimche (2250 m). There is a trail junction
here that connects to a high route back to Syarpa
gaon and Sabru village; this was the old trail
to Langkath Khola. You have now finished most
of the day climbing; descend gently to the settlement
of Lama Hotel at 2380m.
Hotel to Langtang Village.
After trekking about 2 hours, glimpses of Langtang
Lirung, (7246m), appear through the trees. The
settlement of Gumncachok consists of Riverside
Lodge, on the bank of the river, and another
Riverside Lodge, in a clearing known as Chhunama,
15 minutes beyond. The trail crosses a stream
on a log bridge, and then climbs through meadows
to Ghora Tabela at 3000 meters. The Langtang
villagers keep herds of yaks and cattle here
and pastures above the village. You may not
have noticed it because the trail was climbed
gently, but you have ascended more than a thousand
meters today. Trekkers have fallen ill, and
some have died in this region because of altitude
village to Kyanjin Gompa.
The trail winds through the village and climbs
onto a ridge dominated by a large square chorten
and a long row of Mani walls. It then climbs
gradually past the small village of Muna to
Singdum, where there is a small lodge. Continuing
through yak pastures, as the valley becomes
broader, the path crosses a wooden cantilever
bridge, then climbs a moraine where you can
finally see Kyanjin Gompa. It is a short descent
to lodges, a cheese factory and an almost defunct
gompa. The Swiss Association for Technical Assistance
started the cheese factory I 1955. It now produces
about 7000 kg of cheese annually, all of it
halted by porter to the dairy in Kathmandu.
It is easy to reach Kyanjin gompa, elevation
3920 meters, before lunch, allowing time to
acclimatize and explore the surroundings. If
you like you have program to visit Langtang
Lirung Glacier after your lunch in Kyanjin Gompa.
