The Circuit trek winds through the beautiful Langtang Valley and Kyanjin Gompa, in what is considered to be a holy and sacred land, whilst finishing conveniently at the north edge of Kathmandu Valley.
From the Tamang town of SyabruBesi we start our trekking excursion, at the confluence of two major rivers. The natural diversity of plant and wild life surrounds us as we travel along the river valley, widening out to reveal great snowy peaks reaching their pinnacles up to the heavens. The bamboo sways in the breeze, filled with the scents of rhododendron, pine and juniper, amid the surrounding glaciers and meadows and, as we hike by day and rest by night, it is impossible not to be overcome with the joy and peace of the slow moving, simple ways of rural Nepali life.
The remote upper region of Langtang lies on the border with Tibet. Known as the Valley of the Glaciers, the mountain culture of this serene pastureland is very much influenced by Tibetan Buddhist traditions. For those seeking insight into these traditions there is an air of openness and willingness to share amongst the local people; with every question you are sure to find an answer.
We hike our way down the valley to finally reach the outskirts of ancient Kathmandu. It is an easy change of route if there is desire to traverse the holy lakes of Gosaikunda
