DETAILED ITINERARY


Day 01: Kathmandu to Syabrubesi [1460m]

We have an early departure for the 7 hour drive to our starting point at the foot of the Langtang Valley. The road takes a spectacular route, climbing high over the ridges to escape the Kathmandu Valley and providing us with a superb panorama of the Himalaya, including the Annapurnas, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and the peaks of the Langtang region that we will soon become better acquainted with. We then plunge down into the Trisuli River valley which we follow for most of the day’s drive.

Accommodation: Local Tea House

Day 02: Syabru besi trek to Gatlang [2238m]

After an hour and half of ascent from Syabrubesi we reach the view point from where we can see the fantastic view of Ganesh Himal, Gosainkund range and the Goljang valley. From here we head down to Goljang valley for lunch which will take us about an hour down hill from the view point. Tonight we stay in Gatlang, a beautiful Tamang village, about 3 hrs walk from Goljang.

Accommodation: Local Tea House
Approx Walking Time: 5 ½ hours

Day 03: Gatlang trek to Tatopani [2380m]
Today’s walk begins by descending to Thangbuchet (near Chilime village) by a lovely khola (river), where we stop for lunch. After lunch the trail will take us up again, first crossing a hanging bridge and climbing to Tatopani which literally means ‘hot water’. Here we can enjoy the natural hot springs nestled in the lap of the mountains. Locals believe that the waters have a healing quality that eases away your aches and pains.

The trail ascends to Nagthali Danda (3300m), a high, open grassland with amazing views of snow covered Himalayas. We stop part way up for lunch at the delightful Brimdang village. After lunch our trek continues ascending up to Nagthali Danda and once there we can enjoy the view accompanied by some tea prepared by the caretaker of the Gompa there. We then continue down to Thuman, a Tibetan influenced Tamang village with friendly people who love to sing and dance!

After lunch our trail continues to Briddim, another Tibetan influenced Tamang village where we stay in a local home for a truly unique experience. All accommodation, lodgings and food are offered at local houses on a rotational basis.
