The Langtang Circuit Trek is a must-do trek in Nepal where the gorgeous mountains in Langtang, Yala, and Ganesh Himal ranges to create a mesmerizing experience. The trail goes through lush forests of oak and rhododendron and gives you a chance to spot the wildlife of Langtang National Park. The trek also explores the highly revered sites like Kyanjin Gompa and villages of Sherpa and Tamang communities. A delinquent display of jaw-dropping mountains and culture is what makes the Langtang Circuit Trek blissful.
Your trip commences with your arrival in Kathmandu where you will tour the valley and visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites, namely: Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath, Kathmandu Durbar Square, and Boudhanath. Next, collect your necessities and get on a drive that takes you to Syabrubensi located in Rasuwa District. The road from Syabrubensi to Lama Hotel is filled with lush vegetation and diverse wildlife.
As you walk on the banks of the Langtang Khola, you’ll reach Ghodatabela, and, after a short ascent, you arrive at Langtang village. The next day, the trek takes you to the quaint Buddhist monastery of Kyanjin Gompa. Learn the ascetic lives of the monks there, and later head to Tserko Ri (4984m) to catch a panoramic view of Langtang Lirung (7227m), Langtang II (6596m), Dorje Lakpa (6966m), and Yala Peak (5500m).
As we learn some Tamang culture in Ngegang, we venture on the road to the major destination of Ganja La Pass (5130m). Once you cross the pass, across the pass lay two Tamang settlements of Dhukpu and Keldang where we shall spend some time. We shall visit the Gekye Gompa where we can learn more about Buddhism. The trail reaches its end near Sermathang and after a quick drive to Kakani, we see an increase in the human settlement as we once again enter city life. A short drive leads us to Kathmandu where the trip shall end.
