You will also have choice to combine this Langtang trek with Birdim home stay trek ( Tamang heritage trail) or Ganesh Himal camping trek.
A bus drive to Syabru bensi (125 Km), north east of Kathmandu, brings you to the starting point of this spectacular Langtang trek to the awesome Ganesh Himal and Langtang region of central Nepal. Moving up a gentle gradient, you pass along the dramatic kangiyang gompa, langtang valley, through villages inhabited by the Tamang andd Tibetan people, into lush forest of Rhododendron, conifers and oak, and passed mountain cattle ( Yak, Sheep ) grazing on rich alpine pastures under the watchful eyes of their herders. Breathtaking Mountain views immerge on your ascent as the vegetation becomes sparser and the conditions more challenging. Once the Gosainkunda (known as frozen holy Shiva lake) pass 4600 mtr is behind you fluttering Buddhist prayer flags, brightly painted chortens, Maniwalls and yak herders welcome you to the land of these high mountain people. Langtang, Dorje Lakpa, Ganesh Himal, Manusalu, Gorkha Himal and Annapurna proudly show above as you head for the main Langtang and Helambu valley trail. This adventure takes you of the bitten track into the lights of a hardy, untouched people. You will have enough time to explore and relax in Kathmandu after the Langtang helambu cultural trek.
