This is the first day on the road to get to our trek put in destination. The choice of vehicle can differ from the package you opt to choose, ranging from public vehicle to a private vehicle. There are two ways to reach Shyapru Besi and the best way is the national highway namely Prithvi highway. The trip on a coiled highway and along one of the biggest tributaries of Trishuli takes roughly around 7 hours. Once in Shyapru Besi you will unload your luggage and call it a night.
Day 04: Syabru to lama hotel
Langtang is one of those destinations severely affected by the 2015 earthquake and it is visible from the very first day. Once you get your permits checked right at the beginning of the trek you are bound to Changthang, popularly known as Lama Hotel.

The lodges at Lama Hotel as well were destroyed severely by the earthquake which now has been constructed to serve the tourists. Overnight in Lama hotel.
Day 05: Lama hotel to langtang
It takes around 5 hours to reach the final destination with several breaks in between. From Lama hotel the trail climbs up to hamlets and forests to villages of Tsarding, Chamki, Gumba and then finally to Langtang. All the villages mentioned have been severely destroyed by landslide. The views of the himalayas in Langtang and Tibet get closer and clearer as you keep walking towards your final destination. Few teahouses are build just to serve food to the trekkers in the region but offer no accommodation. However, there are proper accommodation in Langtang. Overnight in Langtang.
Day 06: Langtang to kyanjin gompa
If you are well acclimatized you can trek to Kyanjin Gompa a day prior but we do not recommend you do so as you will surpass the recommended elevation. The trek takes around 4 hours with an easy pace and climb an elevation of 400+ meters. The trail from langtang climbs through rugged terrain and small yak herding villages of Mundu, Sindum and Yampha. Furthermore, the trail climbs along Langtang Khola all the way to Kyanjin Gompa. The mountains from Kyanjin looks more bigger, better and within the reach of your palms. Overnight in Kyanjin.
Day 07: Rest day
It is an additional day in Kyanjin Gompa and a wonderful opportunity to explore the valley, river beds and the splendid viewpoints. The gompa itself is a sight to watch. Although it has received severe cracks and damage from the quake, its murals are worth the watch. Furthermore, climbing to Tsergo Ri, a 5150 meter viewpoint in the valley, is the most rewarding viewpoints in the valley. The views from the summit are stunning with Langtang Lirung (7227 m), Yubra (6246 m), Changbu (6251 m), Tserko and Yala Peak and Naya Kanga (5844 m) and Kangja Himal. The peak also allows a good view of the Langtang Lirung Glacier. After spending some time you will fall back to Kyanjin for another night. Overnight in Kyanjin.
Day 08: Kyanjin to lama hotel
The day is going to be laid back and slow as majority of today’s walk will be downhill bound. There are no alternative trails and we will follow the same trail back to Lama hotel. Keep your eyes open for things you missed on your way up. Overnight in Lama Hotel.
Day 09: Lama hotel to thulo shyapru
Another day on the trail following the same way back to almost the beginning of the trek. You will retrace your way to Thulo Syabru and accommodate in the same.
Day 10: Thulo Syabru to sin gompa (chandan bari)
We head out of Thulo Syabru all the way to the village of Dursagang. From here, the trail then climbs steeply through the forest of hemlock and rhododendron to the ridge namely Phoprang danda. There is another option as well available to Sing Gompa and depending upon the condition the route may differ. From here the trail continues in the forests and makes through hamlets and lodges all the way to Chandan bari. Chandan bari is famous as Sing Gompa. where available local cheese factoryas well. Overnight in Sing gompa.
Day 11: Sing Gompa to Gosainkunda Lake
The trail climbs through the same forest you left behind on the previous day and soon enough you will enter the protected area of Gosainkunda. With every spur towards your destination of the day, the mountain vista becomes bigger and awe inspiring. The trail climbs through Chalang Pati all the way to Lauribina Yak. The views of all Ganesh including the Paldor peak, Manaslu, Annapurnas and several unnamed peaks are captivating. From Laurebina you will enter tree less terrain. Soon enough, the lakes starts unfolding from the distance and the first ever lake that you will witness is Saraswati Kunda. It is believed that there are 108 lakes in the Gosainkunda periphery. Overnight in Gosainkunda.
Day 12: Gosainkunda to phedi
It is a downhill from Gosainkunda to Phedi and your knees will be put into test. Out of Gosainkunda the trail traverses through the pass of Lauribina and then further drops steeply to the seasonal lodges of high camp. Further down the trail you will take the easier and less steep path to Phedi. Since the trek will last for around 3 hours you will get plenty of time to rejuvenate for the days to come. Overnight in Phedi.
Day 13: Phedi to tharepati
Usually people walk all the way to Ghopte from Gosainkunda which is around 8 hours of downhill. However we break the day into 2 as it would be too much to ask within a day from your body, adventure apart rest and your fitness is a must. You would start downhill from Phedi until the final nerve wrecking uphill through the forest of Bamboo to ghopte. There are high chances of seeing a lot of wildlife in this section of the trek. From Ghopte the trail drops and climbs continues and makes its way through windy and exposed ridges. Overnight in Tharepati.
Day 14: Tharepati to melamchi gaun.
Two trails branch from the village of Tharepati, one heads to Kathmandu valley and the second drops down towards Helambu. The walk from Tharepati to Melamchi Gaun is basically all forest and ruined temporary herders shelters and the grazing ground for local livestock. The views aren't as such but at times the landscape becomes beautiful. Towards the end of the trek the trail gets literally steep and very challenging. You will make your way through several chortens, prayer flags and mani wheels until you will see Melamchi Gaun in the distance. Melamchi gaun also known as Melamchi Ghyang is pretty big enough to be called a village. Overnight in Melamchi Gaun
Day 15: Melamchi gaun to Tarke Gyang.
You head out of the Gompa in the Melamchi Gaun and then drop down through dense forest. There are several chortens and prayer flags along the trail which is a reminder of the fact that the region has a very big Buddhist influence. Once in Tarke Ghyang you realize how beautiful this village is, made of mostly stones. Overnight in Tarke Ghyang.
Day 16: Tarke to Sermathang
Sermathang is a very popular rest area that falls in the Helambu circuit. To make it to Sermathang, which takes around 4 - 5 hours, you head out of Tarke Ghyang hotel. You embark on the only trail that traverses through religiously and culturally rich Buddhist villages of Seti Ghyang and Gangyul. From the village of Gangyul you reach an unfinished road which leads in the beautiful village of Sermanthang. In Sermathang awaits beautiful views of mountains in the langtang range. Overnight in Sermathang.
Day 17: Sermathang to Baruwa (Camping overnight)
It is a very short walk to Baruwa village from Sermathang and this is the last village in the Helambu circuit. Despite very close to motorable road and having 700 household and being a large village, this is least developed village. In such a huge village exists no teahouses or very basic school and facilities. Overnigth in Baruwa village.
Day 18: Baruwa to melamchi bazaar (drive to Kathmandu).
The trail drops from Baruwa but more gently towards our final destination. As you leap forward towards Melamchi Bazaar, the settlements get more mixed and the villages turn into towns. Once in Melamchi Bazaar, which takes slightly above couple of hours in slow pace, you will board a vehicle to Kathmandu. When you reach Kathmandu our guide will transfer you to your hotel.
