Langtang offers a lot in a short time for anyone who has limited time and also if you are new to trekking in Nepal. Starting from a small Sherpa village just above Langtang Khola on day 2 we start entering the valley via Lama hotel. The first few days are into Jungle, crossing rivers and landslides with some good step section in-between. Yup, you will definitely fell challenged. The valley opens wide on day 3 where you start to see some snow peaks like scout peak and Tsergori waving you hello at the horizon. We will end the trek back tracing the same path till Lama hotel and hiking downward towards Syaphru bensi, One of the closet town bordering Tibet in North.
Didn't feel challenged enough? You can always connect the trail to Gosainkunda. Just saying.
