Day 01 : Arrival in Kathmandu
A representative from Himalaya Hub Adventure will pick you up from the Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) and take you to the hotel as per the booked itinerary. After a few hours of rest in the hotel, the representative of HHA will meet you and describe the whole trip and how it will go. Interact with the Representatives and Guides so you become more prepared for the trip! However, if you arrive late at night, the meeting will be held the next day after the Kathmandu city Tour. At the meeting, we fulfill all remaining booking and payment processes as well.

    After breakfast, we take you to four major world UNESCO heritage sites for sightseeing around Kathmandu Valley. Visit the Pashupatinath Temple, one of the holiest of all Hindu temples. Situated 5 kilometers east of Kathmandu, the temple of Lord Shiva-Pashupatinath, with its two-tiered golden roof and silver doors, is famous for its superb architecture. We can see the temple, the activities performed on the temple premises, and the cremation bank of the Bagmati River.

    Apart from Hindus, no one is allowed to enter the main temple, but we take a short walk by the bank of the Bagmati River, where one can observe the pilgrims and Hindu priests activities around the premises. This River is also a cremation site for Hindus. From here, we take a short drive that leads to Bouddhanath, northeast of the Pashupatinath area.

    The Stupa of Bouddhanath is 8 kilometers east of Kathmandu. This colossal and ancient stupa is one of the biggest in the world. This area is also known as ‘Little Tibet. After a visit here to observe the Tibetan Buddhist way of life, our tour continues towards the Patan area, which is situated to the south of Kathmandu and separated by a bridge over the River Bagmati. Patan Durbar Square (Patan) is also known as Lalitpur, which means the city of Arts and architecture.

    The old historical castle (Durbar), the tall terracotta house, and the Stone Temple of Krishna with the pillar of Garuda look fascinating. Garuda is the vehicle of Lord Vishnu as well as of Lord Krishna. After the historic visit, we drive short distances towards the end of the Patan area at the Tibetan Refugee Camp, where one can observe the happy and cheery workers weaving carpets. The Swayambhunath Stupa (Monkey Temple) has been in use since the 5th century and consists of a magnificent domed stupa as well as a variety of shrines and temples. Each temple is extremely ornate and richly decorated with gold and vibrant prayer flags, though it’s not only the spiritual décor that draws visitors.

    This sacred pilgrimage site is also home to hundreds of monkeys considered holy by Tibetan Buddhists and Hindus. According to legend, Manjushree, the bodhisattva of wisdom, was in the process of raising the temple hill when the lice in his hair transformed into these monkeys. Swayambhunath means self

    arisen and is derived from that legend.

After coming back from the view point, we will head back to Ghodatabela or Langtang village for the night. If you wish to make a trip to Tsergo Ri View Point, it is recommended to have an extra day as it is a long day trip from Kyanjing Gompa, and we recommend you to carry an energy bar, some nuts, and a packed lunch.

     Langtang is located in the Himalayan region of Nepal and to the north of Kathmandu, the Tibetan border region. The Langtang trek is a mixture of mystery and adventure. Trek takes you through beautiful stone steps, terraced fields, woods, waterfalls, and lakes providing you with mesmerizing landscapes.

    The Langtang trek takes 15 days to complete. The Langtang region is an easy trek with numerous alternate routes. These routes lengthen the trip. You can extend the Langtang journey if you're interested in discovering every route.

    No. You don’t need a guide to start your trek towards Langtang valley. It is not a restricted area. Unlike other well-known treks in Nepal, the Langtang trip pathways are harder to locate. Having a guide or porters with you greatly helps to make your incredible walk possible because there are so many little pathways tucked among the dense alpine forest.

    Yes, it is possible. But trekking alone through the dense forest can create obstacles. Also traveling independently you have to take care of your accommodation and food yourself. It may create more hurdles and less experience. So, a hiring guide is a good choice.

    The total cost of the Langtang trek is 1000$ to 1500$. it depends upon the different routes you want to trek. Langtang trek is one of Nepal's most affordable and reachable high-altitude treks. Only 19 miles (30.58 km) north of Kathmandu lies the Langtang Valley.

    In a year, the spring season and autumn season is the best time to trek around the Langtang region. Trekking conditions in the Langtang region are generally warm, and clear, with blue skies and refreshing air throughout this two-season period. The most beautiful and safest times to go trekking and walking in Nepal are, however, the spring and fall seasons.
