The combination of the two valleys gives a great adventure through the high altitude passes. Walk through the valleys and stand at the feet of huge glaciers. The Helambu valley allows you to experience the strong traditions of the people and land. You can also visit old monasteries and see the roots of the “Sherpa” culture.

  • Detail Itinerary
    • Day One: Kathmandu to Dhunche (2030m)

      Driving time: 7 hours 
      The first day’s trek begins early, driving by 4x4 or bus to the starting point of the trail at Dhunche. Leaving the Kathmandu valley, the road twists and turns along the high hills through remote villages. When you reach the village of Ranipauwa, there is a fine view of the Annapurna Mountain range in the west and Langtang Mountain range in the east. Driving to Trishuli Bazaar, then travelling over rough roads, leads us into the Langtang National Park where you will notice the remoteness of human settlements at higher altitude. Our first night will be spent in the district headquarters of Dhunche.

       

    • Day Two: Dhunche to Thulo Syabru (2210m)

      Trekking time: 7 hrs 
      Our trek begins today by descending through forest, down to the Trisuli River. This water runs from the Gosainkunda Lake, which is holy to Hindus and Buddhists. After crossing a suspension bridge, there is a steep climb beside a stream and up the mountainside to the village of Braccaka. The village is steeped in Sherpa culture and traditions. We will continue on, skirting around a ridge, leading to fields, climbing at a steady pace. We will stop for lunch in the village of Brabel where there is a beautiful view of Ganesh Mountain (7000m). Moving along the trail leads you to Syabru village where we will spend the night.

       

    • Day Three: Syabru to Lama Hotel (2340m)

      Trekking time: 7 hrs
      The trail leads north, passing old government buildings, across a suspension bridge and over the Bootee Koki into the settlement of Old Syabru. A pleasant forest trail leads to a side stream, then onto a waterfall, and then climbs up along rocky ridges. We will cross the Langtang River, and enjoy a lunch break in Bomb, listening to the water flowing from the mountain glaciers. After lunch we will cross two bridges along the main path, on a gentle ascent to Gummanchhok. Situated under a steep hill is Lama Hotel where we will spend the night.

       

    • Day Four: Lama Hotel to Langtang village (3330m)

      Trekking time: 6 to 7 hrs 
      Starting a gentle climb through the forest brings you to Gore Tabela, which is located in a wide valley. Situated here is the Royal Nepali Army base camp, where they guard National Park animals. We stop for lunch before heading towards the alpine meadows and ascending up to Langtang. It is the park’s headquarters and made up of stone walls with surrounding fields and yak herds. Langtang is an historical and traditional village. The people strongly believe in Tibetan Buddhism.

       

    • Day Five: Langtang to Kyanjin (3730m)

      Trekking time: 3 to 4 hrs 
      The day starts by climbing to a Chorten (Buddhist Monument) and then down a gentle path, passing Mani stones (prayer stones). These stones have carvings of a Tibetan Buddhist chant (Om Mani padme hum) and virtually look as if they are speaking themselves. The trail continues into a glacial valley where you can see, weather permitting, the Kimshun and Tsenji Himal. It then follows to Kyanjin Gompa.

       

    • Day Six: Rest day in Kyanjin Gompa (3730m)

      Kyanjin Gompa is not a very old village. There is a small cheese factory, run by the government, where many local people work. There are plenty of lodges and the valley here is known as the Garden of Nepal. From here you can explore the glacier, and view the mountains of Tsergo RI (4700m) and Chyorkuri (5200m).

       

    • Day Seven: Kyanjin Gompa to Lama Hotel (2340m)

      Trekking time: 5 to 6 hrs 
      The return route to Lama Hotel is mainly flat and downhill via Langtang. We will spend the night here.

       

    • Day Eight: Lama Hotel to Syabru Besi (1810m)

      Trekking time: 5 hrs
      We will walk the same path from Lama Hotel back to Bamboo Lodge where we will stop for lunch. Trekking beside the river to Syabru Besi takes about three hours. We will spend our last night here.

       

    • Day Nine: Syabru Besi to Kathmandu

      Driving time: 7 hours
      after a good breakfast we will return to Kathmandu, stopping at Trisuli Bazaar for lunch.
