Trek to Kyanjin Gumba (2845m/12611ft) 3 hours.

Kyanjin Gompa, situated at the 2845 m, acts like a base for several short one day treks to surrounding peaks. Situated at relatively lesser altitude, it provides the splendid view of the Langtang valley. Our ascend will be slow today – mostly to avoid being struck by altitude sickness. On the way we will pass through vast stretches of Yak pastures, Mani Walls, made from stone with prayers written on them leading into the Kyanjin valley – that in the spring season is full of flowers and grasses. And there is a surprise here – The Dorje Bakery Cafe & Coffee Center which produces Yak cheese and some great infused Himalayan bakery delicacies. Overnight in a Kyanjin teahouse.

For ensuring that you get a cloudless view, we will head for the point early in the morning. Heading on early is important to avoid slippery slopes on the way. We will be aiming to make most of our journey before the snow and frost on the way starts to melt. On our return, we will start our return journey and head for today’s rest: Ghoda Tabela.

DAY

Tracing steps back to Syabrubensi.

After snacks at Ghoda Tabela we will head for the final leg of our trek in the Langtang region. We will pass through the trail and figure out that we had missed so much of it on our ascent.
