“Daily in to the detail” experience of my life to the mountains very Near to capital Kathmandu: langtang valley trek.
Day 01: We drive from Kathmandu to syprubensi on Jeep.
All of us gathered at the bus station of Syaprubensi but there were no any tickets available for 5 more people. So we decided to take a jeep for us. Driving on the jeep for hours, making many pauses were really amazing. Our driver was very kind to us that he allowed us to stop on the way for photos of scenery. And another memorable thing is Dal Bhaat on the way at Rasuwa Bazzar. Dal Bhat was our lunch – this is traditional meal of Nepali.
Many Police checking points and army check post on the way was really crazy. But it was for the security of country’s people and trekkers and for the reason that we were on the way to Tibet Boarder and on the entrance of Langtang National park, home of endangered Red Panda. After a long drive we reached syaprubensi at 1pm with tired leg but fresh mind.
Day 02: After a completely refreshing day at Syaprubensi we initiated our trekking to Lama Hotel.
Waking up early at six in the morning we started our trekking early at 6; 30am, the intention of walking early was to pass all the uphill before sun comes to strike on our head badly. After 4 hours walking on uphill and downhill, all the way from the bank of river, we reached Lama hotel and a cool place inside jungle. Opposite of lama hotel we saw many unnamed Himalayas which gave us feeling of Himalayan life in a single day of trekking.
Day 03: Lama Hotel to Langtang valley
when we started our trekking from lama hotel to langtang valley it was normal and all the things were same as before. But when time got decreasing for sun set, we were increasingly near to Langtang valley. I remember that we shouted for the scene. we saw Langtang village and the surrounding mountains before we reached the valley. On the way after Thangshyap village the scene were extremely unbelievable. No tree line starts after Thyangshyap village and the scenery looks awesome.
All 360 degree of Himalayas around our head was really unexpected. Walking on the valley with waterfalls all around the walls of the valley and snow capped mountains on the top was really memorable. Walking slowly, making numerous pauses; we reached to our destination, Langtang Valley. One of the awesome place I ever seen in my life Langtang region was beautiful. But the irony is that, life of people living there is one of the hell I saw in these kind of famous trekking trails of Nepal.
Day 04: Langtang to Kyangin Gompa
Started at 9am in the morning, walking all the way valley on the very near to the river and watching all the mountains was amazing this day. When we took rest for water, chocolates or any of the pauses on any direction of the valley gave us clear view of mountains, any one of them. A complete 360 degree of the Himalaya all around us was so lovely, more than just beautiful of being there.
Langtang village was amazing itself, night we had in Langtang was so amazing and this walking from Langtang valley to Kyanji Gompa was another most memorable of the life time. Langtang village was second last village near mountain and today we were walking for the last village of this trekking trail which was completely amazing and curious in it. Very few local people on the way and many trekkers passing our way saying Namaste, hello, how are you, hey was so amazing. Smiling faces of people and white hills around was so amazing and mesmerizing.
After walking for 4 hours in easy manner, we met a village just under the many Glaciers called Kyanjing Gompa. And on the same day we visited cheese fatory and bought two kg of Cheese, which we were utilizing for peak climbing of next day. Its more than amazing for us to be there at small village all surrounded by more than Dozen of mountains all around and sun getting reflected back from those white mountains to the small village where we were having beer.
Day 05: Exploring day of Whole area after climbing Tsergu Ri or Kyanji ri
Among these two different viewpoints or peaks of This region, one is selected by trekkers looking at the fitness level. Those who are very fine and can make adventure through smiling faces can go for Tsergu ri. And mild trekkers who want to avoid hard walking uphill but wish to watch the mountains choose Kyanjing Ri.
We all were boys of 25-35 so we choosed Tsergu Ri 4988m high. Tchergu ri is an amazing destination from where we can see wide mountain range including some of them just in the middle of the Nepal & Tibet. Bascially this peak is top, from where we can see mountains from both Nepal and Tibet.
Way back of langtang trekking normally routes back same way to kathmandu. But we flew directly from Kyangjing Gompa to kathmandu on the same day. Since one of our friend was having problem with his knee it got worse unfortunately on climbing the Tserguri, the same day.
And thus we came back to Kathmandu via Chopper with a scenic view of Langtang range of Nepal Himalaya, Especially just above the Ganja La pass trekking trail.
