The Langtang Kyanjin Gompa trek is not a crowded trek. Nevertheless, it is stands out as a great trekking destination near the Tibetan border. It is also the closest major trekking area from Kathmandu.
Starting from Dhunche, the Kyanjin Gompa trek takes you into the heart of the Langtang Region. Once in the valley, walking among beautiful alpine forests, you get to immerse yourself in the stunning natural aura of Langtang. Passing through these pristine forests, you trek to the traditional and ethnic village of Kyanjin Gompa. At the village, you enjoy a day of rest with several Himalayan giants seemingly in the frontyard.
From Kyanjin Gompa, you continue to the pastures of Langsisa at an altitude of 4,084 m from where you get to visit several high altitude glaciers. You can reach Langsisa from Kyanjin Gompa after a day of trekking. There are a few huts in Langsisa, where we will spend the night.
The verdant Langtang Valley, the cultural nugget that is Kyanjin Gompa, and the Lirung glacier with its clear blue water, are the primary highlights of this trek. The Kyanjin Gompa trek takes you to a maximum altitude of 4,300 m in about 10 days and is moderately challenging.
