Langtang is a narrow valley situated 175 km north of Kathmandu, lies close to the Tibetan border. It takes about a six to seven hours bus ride by Pashang Lambhu Highway from Kathmandu - Trisuli - Dhunche - Shyabru Besi. From Shyabru Besi, a trekking path following the Langtang gorge finally reaches Kyanjin Gompa at 3900 m.
Kyanjin Gompa is the last place in the valley where you will find lodges to stay. There are many options to explore one or more days around Kyanjin Gomba valley. The cheese factory near the Gomba was started as a Swiss project in 1955 with rounds of cheese carried to Kathmandu over the Ganja La pass.
If you want to climb up to the trough on the west side of the glacier, you will often come to a frozen lake. Head east from Kyangjin Gomba to reach Tsergo Ri as an excellent viewpoint, head west from Yala Kharka or continue circling the hill, reaching the prayer flag-festooned summit (4784 meters) in 2 hours. From the top to the south you can see Ganjala pass leading into Helambu and Naya Kanga, the trekking peak summit to its west. The surrounding peaks are quite spectacular.
From Kyangjin Gomba, you can also head up the valley to Langsisa Kharka, “the last summer pasturing settlement”. Ahead lies the main Langtang Glacier and the Tibetan border, a hard day’s climb away. To the south lie beautiful Buddha peak and the terminus of the East Langtang glacier. There is a big reddish rock at Langsisa that according to legend is that color because a holy man living outside the valley lost his Yak and tracked it to this place. The Yak died here. Langsisa means the place where the Yak (Lang) died (sisa)}. A few miles up to the valley to the southeast, two big rock gendarmes stand a hundred feet above the glacier. They are said to represent two Buddhist saints, Shaky Muni and Guru Rimpoche.
Asian Hiking Team recommended itinerary: bring you inside Langtang Valley within 3 days, explore one full day hike around Kyanjin Gomba then descend to Syabru Besi then take a bus / jeep to Kathmandu.
A powerful earthquake of 7.8 magnitude shook Nepal on the 25th of April 2015 causing many human casualties and destroying Langtang village and Kyanjin Gomba. However, it was already open for the tea house / Guest house on the way to our trekking. It is also noticed that if you visit this area, the local people can benefit, so we heartily recommend visiting that area.
