The trip begins in Syabrubesi, a few kilometers from the border with Tibet and the gateway to the Langtang Valley and the Tamang country. We will go up through the bottom of the valley to arrive first at Lama Hotel, then Langtang Village and finally Kyangjin Gompa, the last inhabited village in the valley.

The path that we will take on this trek goes through exuberant subtropical forests until we reach the very Himalayas, with large and impressive peaks and glaciers.

The region is home to the Tamang and Sherpa peoples. Here they live their lives with a unique culture that is a curious mix of Nepali and Tibetan influences.

The best months to carry out this trekking are March, April, May, September, October, November and December. Remember that we will enter one of the great National Parks of Nepal.

We slowly climb Doman (1680m) and continue along a rocky ridge to Landslide Lodge and the Hot Spring restaurant; it is named after a small hot spring on the opposite bank of the river at 1810 meters.

During the route we can carry a small backpack with the things we will use during the day. The porters will transport our backpacks to the next lodge.

For those who always want more, we have several extensions to do during the afternoons to ascend to peaks close to our lodges from 3,600 to 5,100m.

As mountain professionals we not only seek the greatest enjoyment, but also the highest possible degree of safety during the activities. For this we will have personal safety and communication equipment and a sufficient first aid kit.

It is essential to have accident and rescue insurance that covers any incident (it is mandatory for all participants). If you don’t have one, we can manage it for you.
