Reiserute

  • Day 1: Start Kathmandu
    The group flights are scheduled to arrive into Kathmandu this afternoon. Free airport transfers are available for any flight, provided you have supplied your flight details to Exodus in advance and requested transfers. A representative will meet you at the airport and you will be transferred to the hotel. There are no activities planned today so if making your own travel arrangements, you can arrive at any time. Upon arrival to the hotel please look out for a noticeboard in the reception area with details of where and when to meet for your welcome briefing this evening. There is an Exodus desk in the hotel lobby should you require any assistance. Hotel Royal Singi (or similar)
  • Day 2: Drive to Syabrubensi
    Leaving the Kathmandu Valley we have a long drive ahead (approx. 7-8 hours) - the road condition is poor and so we use jeeps. We drive out of the Kathmandu Valley and head northwards to Trisuli Bazaar. Continuing on, the road climbs to Dhunche and the Langtang National Park before descending to the river where we reach Syabrubensi, a small town at 1,462m where we spend the night. Teahouse
  • Day 3: Walk to Sherpagoan (2490m), a small village perched on terraces above the Langtang River
    We begin our trek by descending to the river, which we cross by bridge. We then have a steep climb away from the river to Kanjim, where we have lunch. Climbing further, the trail contours around into the main Langtang Valley. We have wonderful views ahead and down to the river. We end today with a short descent to Sherpagoan, a small village perched on terraces high above the Langtang Khola at 2,490m. Teahouse
  • Day 4: Trek through forest to Ghora Tabela (3035m) via Rimche and Chhunama
    We continue up the valley towards Langtang. The walk starts off easily, following an undulating trail through Sherpagoan and into the forest, past Rimche and further on to Lama Hotel; a collection of lodges in a forest clearing. The trail undulates up further through the forest with glimpses of the mountains ahead. We pass Riverside and have lunch a little further on at Chhunama. In the afternoon we have a shorter walk, uphill mostly, to Ghora Tabela (3,035m), where the valley starts to open out. Most of the area around here was destroyed in the earthquake and lodges are just now being rebuilt. Teahouse
  • Day 5: A poignant walk as the trail crosses the debris which engulfed Langtang village in the 2015 earthquake; continue to Kyanjin Gompa (3880m)
    The valley now opens out as we continue our climb. The trail ascends through the few tea houses at Thangshyap and we come to the moraine that was Langtang. Langtang village was destroyed in the earthquake of 2015 and was covered by rock and ice moraine. A path now leads across the moraine, a poignant and sad reminder of the power of nature. Once across the moraine we come to a few newly built lodges and a memorial to those who lost their lives in this valley in the earthquake. Climbing out of Langtang we pass the small settlement of Mundu. The valley opens out now to reveal spectacular mountain views. To our left the impressive Langtang Lirung towers directly above us and ahead is the great snow-covered bulk of Ganchempo. The trail climbs steadily past many prayer walls until at 3,880m we come to the teahouses at Kyanjin Gompa. Once there was only a small cheese factory here but now it is a bustling place with many lodges. Teahouse
  • Day 6: Daywalk to a viewpoint to see impressive peaks and glaciers; option to climb Tsergo Ri (4984m)
    We spend a day at Kyanjin Gompa with a chance to explore the area. There are various optional day walks around here. The most popular walk is up to Kyanjin Ri (4,350m) and Kyimoshung Ri (4,620m). These two viewpoints above Kyanjin Gompa offer some of the most stunning mountain views in Nepal. An impressive array of peaks surrounds us - Langtang Lirung and Kyimoshung, whose huge glaciers tumble to the valley floor. Straddling the Tibetan border are Dorje Lhakpa, Ganchempo and a whole host of 6,000+m peaks whilst across the valley are Naya Kang and the Ganja La pass. For the very energetic there is the chance to climb Tsergo Ri (often written Cherko Ri) – at 4,984m. This is a full day's walk (8-10hrs) but worth it for the views from the top. Another option is to walk towards the Tibetan border and Langshisha, where we get wonderful views of the mountains bordering Tibet. Teahouse
  • Day 7: Retrace our route past Ghora Tabela to Lama Hotel (2500m), a cluster of lodges in the forest
    A long day in terms of kilometres but an easy walk, mainly downhill, with great views down the valley. We leave Kyanjin and retrace our route down past Mundu and across the moraine of Langtang to Ghora Tabela. Heading back into the forest the trail undulates down the valley through Chhunuma and Riverside back to Lama Hotel (2,500m), a small collection of lodges in the forest. Teahouse
  • Day 8: Descend to the river; cross over and continue past Bamboo and Pairo, then climb to the ridgetop village of Syabru (2250m)
    Below Lama Hotel we leave the trail we walked up the valley on and turn off steeply to the left. A rough rocky and narrow trail takes us steeply down to the river and a bridge across the Langtang Khola (2,150m). From here the trail undulates through the forest to Bamboo (1,917m) and further on to Pairo (1,700m) for lunch. After lunch we leave the river and climb steeply for an hour to a small tea shop. From here the trail contours round into a side valley and drops to cross the river by bridge. We then have another steep climb up to Syabru, a village which straddles a ridge (2,250m). There are great views looking back to the Langtang Valley and from just behind the lodges we can see the Ganesh Himal on a clear day. Teahouse
  • Day 9: Steep climb through scrub forest and rhododendron thickets to Sing Gompa
    A short but quite tough walk as we have a long steep climb out of Syabru. We walk through scrub forest and the occasional settlement among the fields, and then through magnificent rhododendron thickets until we reach the top of the ridge at Phoprang Danda,(3,200m), where we have magnificent views of the mountains. After a well-deserved tea break the trail continues on up the ridge, but less steeply now, to the small settlement of Sing Gompa. There are a few lodges here, a small temple and a cheese factory. Red Pandas have been spotted in the forests around here and in the afternoon the energetic can walk up the hill behind the lodge for views on a clear day. Teahouse
  • Day 10: Spectacular ridge walk to Gosainkund Lake (4430m)
    Today is probably the best day of the trek for amazing panoramic mountain views. Climbing a little less steeply this morning we follow the ridge for most of the day. We will have fantastic panoramic views of the Annapurnas, Himalchuli, Manaslu and Ganesh Himal to the west and Langtang Himal to the north-east. We pass through Cholang Pati (3,620m), where there are a few tea shops and after this we gradually leave the trees behind. Climbing further up the ridge the views are even better as we reach Laurebeneyak (3,950m). We stop for lunch at one of the lodges here with plenty of time to admire the magnificent panorama. In the afternoon we climb further up the ridge and finally we contour round into the next valley. A fantastic path high above the first of the holy lakes. The trail undulates now until we finally reach the third lake, Gosainkund, at 4,430m. This lake is particularly sacred and a place of pilgrimage in the summer. It is said to have been created when the god Shiva, suffering from thirst due to a poison, thrust his trident into the mountainside, whereupon three streams burst forth and ran together to form the lake. We stay close to a shrine by the lake, where there are a few pilgrim shelters. As the sun sets the reflection on the lake is incredible as the lake becomes one shimmering mass of gold. It is a truly magnificent sight. (Please note that in spring season there can be snow on this section) Teahouse
  • Day 11: Cross the Laurebena Pass (4650m) to Gopte (3416m)
    A tough day today as we cross the Laurebena Pass. The trail descends from the lodge past the pilgrim shelters to the lake. We then climb up though bare and rugged terrain, passing four smaller lakes before we reach the summit of the Laurebena Pass at 4,650m. It will take us approximately 2.5hrs to the top of the pass. There are magnificent views to the north and west, and as we descend there are superb panoramic vistas over the Nepal midlands. We now have a steep descent for about 2 hrs on a rocky trail made of stone steps to Phedi, where we have lunch. After lunch, we still have another 3.5hrs walk with some steep climbs. At first, we descend a little but the rest of the afternoon takes us on a roller coaster trail up and down the valley. There are many short steep uphill sections followed by short downhill sections. We are now back in the forest and we finally come to our lodge at Gopte (3,416m). Teahouse
  • Day 12: Descend the Helambu Valley to Kutumsang, visiting Tharepati (3,650m) en route, from where Mount Everest may be seen on a clear day
    A long day but mostly downhill. The morning starts with a short downhill and then a climb up to Tharepati (3,650m). The climb is well worth the effort for the amazing views from here. Looking north we can see the Jugal and Everest Himals and on a really clear day we can see right across to Everest. After a short break to admire the views we start to descend into the Helambu valley. We continue walking on an undulating path through thick rhododendron forest with a short climb up to lunch at Mangangoth. After lunch it is all the way down to our last night in a teahouse at Kutumsang. There are fine views back to the Langtang and Jugal Himals, and if it is clear other ranges can also be seen. Teahouse
  • Day 13: Trek to Chunauti/Gul Bhanjyang (two route options available); drive to Kathmandu
    We leave early this morning and start by descending from Kutumsang down into the valley below. We can either take the main trail to Gul Bhanjyang and then walk a jeep track to the main road where we meet our transfer back to Kathmandu or alternatively, take a steeper trail through farms and rice terraces to the valley bottom at 1,040m and meet our transport at Chunauti. We drive through  Melamchi and back to Kathmandu (approx. 5 hours’ drive). Depending on traffic we should arrive to our hotel in the early evening. Hotel Royal Singi (or similar)
  • Day 14: Free day in Kathmandu
    After the long day yesterday we have a free day to explore Kathmandu. You may want to visit the Durbar Square of Kathmandu, the Buddhist stupa at Boudhanath, the Hindu temple at Pashupatinath or the monkey temple at Swayambhunath. The Thamel District is a good place to explore with its maze of shops and restaurants. There is also the opportunity today to take an early morning scenic Everest mountain flight. This can be booked and paid for locally by your leader. Please read the ‘Optional Excursions’ section below for information regarding flying in Nepal. Hotel Royal Singi (or similar)
  • Day 15: End Kathmandu
    The tour ends after breakfast. The group flight is a day flight scheduled to depart in the morning. Those on the group flights or who have booked a transfer through Exodus will be transferred to the airport.

Food
Breakfast is included throughout the trip. In the teahouses breakfast will comprise of a choice of bread (a slice of toast, chapatti or Tibetan bread), a choice of egg (boiled, fried or omelette), and a choice between either muesli or porridge each day. Hot tea/coffee will also be served. On specific days, there will not be a choice for breakfast and either a trekkers breakfast (egg, hash brown, baked beans and toast) or a pancake with jam/honey will be served - these options are not available in all teahouses and so we have only included them in locations where they can be guaranteed. Lunch will be taken at a teahouse en route - sometimes one of your guides will go ahead with the group's order to make it more expedient. Dinner will be in the same teahouse that you sleep at (this is custom in Nepal as teahouses base their room rate on it). Although most lodges have almost identical menus, they are reasonably extensive and offer a varied selection, ranging from traditional Nepalese dhal bhat to pizza and apple pie. Dhal bhat is the staple diet in Nepal and comes in many different forms but generally comprises some curried lentil dhal and meat or vegetables, some rice, and a pickle/chutney. Another popular snack is momos; a type of Nepalese dumpling, fried or steamed, filled with meat or vegetables. Although meat is available in the teahouses, we advise against eating it on trek. The meat has often been carried in the heat from lower altitudes for several days before reaching the lodges and can cause stomach upsets or illness. Germs can also be spread by handling dirty money - we recommend using hand sanitiser. If you have a gluten free diet, then we strongly recommend you bring some extra food and snacks with you to supplement the food on trek as there will be little variety available for you, particularly for breakfast. Even many of the soups are powdered and contain gluten. Gluten free breakfast options will be limited to vegetable fried rice and a choice of egg, and on specific days only, a trekkers breakfast (without the toast / with an extra egg) will be served. Breakfast options for vegans will be limited to a choice of muesli/porridge with water each day, and on specific days only, a trekkers breakfast (without the egg), or vegetable fried rice will be served. If you are lactose intolerant as opposed to vegan then the same will apply although you will also have a choice of egg each day. If you buy imported food and drink whilst on trek you will spend more than the suggested amount. Drinking Water Staying hydrated is important when undertaking any physical activity but particularly so at altitude where it is generally recommended to drink at least 3-4 litres per person per day. We strongly encourage you not to buy bottled water on trek as this contributes to the growing problem of plastic pollution in Nepal’s trekking areas. The lodge at Kyanjin has a UV water filter (donated by Exodus) and you will be provided with safe drinking water free of charge here. The teahouses sell boiled water for approx. Rs150-300 per litre (the price increases the higher you trek) which should not require treating. This is also perfect for a bedtime refill as it can double up as a hot water bottle. Alternatively, all teahouses will provide cold water free of charge, if requested. Although this should not be drunk untreated, we recommend that you bring a reusable bottle (or two) and use an effective form of water treatment. There are a wide range of products available these days which are more effective than traditional purification tablets - we recommend talking to an outdoor retailer for the latest advice as technologies are improving all the time: make sure to check the product’s performance in cold/freezing conditions and consider battery life (lithium batteries are best in cold conditions). Handheld UV filters such as a ‘SteriPEN’ are widely available to purchase from online retailers such as Amazon and Ebay – they’re very effective, can treat 1 litre of water in a couple of minutes and the water is ready immediately – look for lightweight lithium battery models and remember that you will need to bring a wide-mouthed bottle (e.g. Nalgene) for use with these devices. There are also an array of water filter and purifier bottles on the market but be wary of their weight, bottles with a small capacity and the products performance in freezing conditions. Exodus has partnered with Water-to-Go, a filtration system that eliminates over 99.99% of all microbiological contaminants from any non-salt water source – please visit Water-to-Go for more information. Exodus customers can claim 15% off your first order, and better still, 15% of the purchase value will be donated to the Exodus Travels Foundation. Please note that if the water freezes it will clog up the filter – in this event, defrost before use by sitting the filter in lukewarm water for 10-15 minutes.
