Moderate or Grade B Trip - comprises a week to 15 days. It can reach up to 5000 meters high in altitude range, but the trails will be moderate (nor easy, nor tough). High altitude may matter on walking speed and distance. You need to have some acclimatization over 3000 meters.


North of Kathmandu, closest to the capital is the Langtang area, a natural paradise. The trek starts with an overland journey to Syabru Bensi where we stay overnight. The following four days are full of beautiful scenery with forests of oak, rhododendron and pine slotted between ancient settlements. Above the tree line the valley widens providing splendid views of Langtang Lirung (7400 meters). It is mainly a gradual climb passing through the major settlement of Langtang and onwards to our trekking destination. An extra day is spent here for taking in the high mountain scenery and further exploration of the extensive glacier system. The terrain changes quite dramatically as we travel towards the Gosainkunda Lake with the landscape becoming more barren and scrub like. A peaceful evening and early morning are spent in a lodge by one of the Sacred Lakes before we need to negotiate the Lauribina pass (4700 m). After crossing the pass there is a steep decent in the morning to lunch with some interesting little ups and downs in the afternoon towards Gopte cave. A final three days of trekking through the heart of the Helambu region, one of the highlights being a wonderful vantage point; a couple of hours on from Gopte cave for a tremendous vista of hundreds of miles of the Nepal Himalaya. The trek goes all the way to Lauribina pass and eventually ends at Sundarijal.
