After breakfast, you will be driven to Dhunche [districts headquarter of Rasuwa] passing through small villages, the driving hours is approx 8 hours. The road from Kathmandu to Dunche is a winding mountain trail fraught with landsides.

Dunche is a lovely clean Tamang town, the Tamangs being the ethnic group that inhabit the area. The first part of your drive upto Trishuli Bazaar is quite smooth. The path now moves along the gravel road. During the rainy season, the way is sometime blocked due to landslides. Your drive from Kathmandu to the destination is to be made by private vehicle.

After breakfast we start out trek. The trail descends along the ridge on Syabru's main street and then drop to the Ghopche Khola (205m) and again descends to the Landslide (1810m). Afterwards, you trek ascend gently to Rimche (2405m) through Bamboo (1965m) and at the end your trail is level to the Lama Hotel. En route you could see red pandas, monkey and bear if you are lucky.

As you continue climbing there are occasional glimpses of Langtang Lirung between the trees. At Ghora Tabela [3000m], the trail emerges from the forest. While walking here, you can catch a glimpse of white monkeys and local birds. Once there was a Tibetan resettlement project, but now it is a Nepalese army post though it has no permanent inhabitants. The trail continues to climb gently and the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during the summer months. There is a monastery which we can visit shortly before arriving at the village of Langtang, the headquarters of the Langtang National Park. The houses of Langtang and its neighbouring villages are of the flat-roofed Tibetan style, surrounded by stone walls enclosing fields of buckwheat, potatoes, wheat, turnips and barley.

After breakfast, we start our walk climbing gradually through small villages and yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyangjin. Here there is a small monastery and a - cheese factory run by government.

If we arrive at Kyangjin by lunch time we will have time to acclimatize and explore the area. It is a dramatic setting, with snow covered peaks surrounding us in all directions. At this point, you can enjoy the panoramic view of Dorje Larpa (6995m), Langtang Ri (6370m.), Langtang Lirung (7245m).

The upper part of the track is more beautiful for the panoramic view of mountains and green hill views. This path is broader and remains sunny through the different Shepra and Tamang villages. The first half part of the trail is gradually down and then the trail does steeply descent to the Syabru Besi (1605m.). The main inhabitants belong to Tamang community and they have adopted Tibetan lifestyle.
