Langtang “Yak Trail”  “Cheese Trail

In Tibetan Lang means Yak and tang means ‘follow’/‘trail’ meaning the name is associated with the ancient practice of Tran’s humans taking animals to different pasture land for grazing at different seasons.  Inhabited by the Sherpa and Tamang communities, different villages are named with different actions taken by Yak.

The trail “Easy and Fun” 

The best part of the Langtang trail is a very easy and moderate walk with a beautiful view each step, the flowing and refreshing sound of the Langtang river adds charm to the journey. From Syabrubesi we walk through Dovan then to Bamboo to cross over to Lama Hotel. From there our journey moves towards Langtang valley, a river corridor valley with a front view of  Mt. Langtang Lirung. As we move forward, the highest point of the trek is Kyanjin Gompa, a  holy, spiritual, and ancient Buddhism valley at 3800m. It is one of the 7 sacred valleys that is believed to be medicated by Guru Padmasambhava. Visiting Kyanjin Gompa to see monks performing their rituals is truly a surreal experience. Besides spiritual Buddhism paradise, Kyanjin Gompa is the hidden beauty of nature, every corner is full of an interesting adventure, visiting Glacier, walking towards Langsila (Holy place), exploring the river, hiking to Kyanjin Ri (top) 4750M and Charku Ri 5000M for a 360-degree view of surrounding mountains, river valley, hills, and glaciers is one of the best ways to explore and see beautiful Langtang. Kyanjin Gompa is also the starting point of the 2 most technically difficult high altitude passes in the world- Tillman Pass and Ganja La.
