Prepare yourself for a relatively challenging trek with a hearty breakfast in the morning. The trek starts with a descent to Thangbuchet. The trail goes along the Bhotekoshi River, passes several villages, and then ascends until you arrive in Nagthali, a once popular meditation hub for monks and priests. Nagthali is an area covered with open grasslands and offers panoramic views of snow-covered mountains like Langtang Lirung, Kerung, and Ganesh Himal.
Accommodation: Overnight in a local lodge.

Day 3Nagthali to Briddhim (2230m)

We start the day with a descending walk, for about an hour, to reach Thuman. Thuman is one of the Tamang villages which are heavily influenced by Tibetan culture. The people here are friendly and love to sing and dance. Later on, we continue walking through rhododendron forests and meadows towards Briddhim, another Tibetan-influenced Tamang community on the lap of Langtang Himal. The trail to Briddhim in springtime is beautiful as the whole rhododendron forest blooms. In Buddhism, enjoy the traditional local cuisines and take part in cultural practices.
Accommodation: Overnight in a local lodge.

 

Day 4Briddhim to Lama hotel (2500m)

Accommodation: Overnight in a local lodge.

Day 5Lama Hotel to Langtang Village (3420m)

Today is a strenuous day as we have to climb about 1000 meters. We start by climbing up towards a steep forest slope to the Langtang River. Continuing our trail, we reach Ghoda Tabela, which means the Horse Stable. After this, the path is slightly gradual and offers the beautiful sight of grazing Yaks in the valley. After ascending for some time, we cross a stream and climb past several water-driven prayer wheels. Langtang is one of the oldest villages along this trekking route. From Langtang, the view of mountain peaks is spectacular.
Accommodation: Overnight in a local lodge.
