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.
Day 04
Syabru 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.
Day 05
Lama 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 problems.
Day 06
Langtang 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.
