6 days Langtang valley tour begins with the drive along the Trisuli River north of Kathmandu, through Trasuli Bazaar; we reach to Dhunche and finally reach at Syabrubensi, a Sherpa village and farmlands of the people. Many villagers are originally from Tibet. Once this route was an important trading route with Tibet, therefore, most of the villagers and peoples here still are involved in trade. On the way of trekking, one can have a trek through Langtang National Park as it is located at the very edge of the Park. We also have chance to see some wild animals and birds. Among them are the monkeys, musk deer, Pika and the national bird of Nepal, the colorful Danphe.
We continue our Trekking to Kyangjin Gompa (3,740 m), in between, we cross many rivers along a gorge and pass through oak and rhododendron forests and glacial moraine. After a overnight stay in Gompa, we visit the local yak cheese factory and have a view of the glaciers, which is also a gateway to Tibet and we return back to Syabru besi.
