We arrange all procedure to trek like staff management, safety management, trekking information management system (TIMS), ground handling management and every aspect of trekking in a very reasonable way. That is why we are able making standard among numerous trekking companies.

 The challenging Tilman Pass leads to Langshisa and the upper Langtang Valley, which offers outstanding photogenic sunsets in the wonderfully diverse National Park. An easy trail down to Syabru Besi follows the third most popular trekking route in Nepal, and ends among the lively and fun-loving Tamang people.

In the afternoon you may have time to explore Swoyambhunath, Durbar Square, Patan or Bhaktapur, cultural and spiritual significance - Kathmandu has more World Heritage sites than any other city in the world.

Day 3: From Kathmandu to Chautara (1450m), drive approx. 3 hrs

After breakfast transfer by road to the trail headed at Chautara.

Day 4-5: Commence trek to Kami Kharka (2810m).

We commence our trek with a long ridge climb, during these early days of the trek we pass through Hindu, Tamang and Sherpa villages. This region has extensive rhododendron, pine and fir forests.

Day 6-7: To Pauwa Pass (3000m/6hrs) & Hile Bhanjyang (3400m/4.5hrs).

We continue along the ridge climb with fabulous views east and west of a chain of mountains that form a natural border with Tibet. W.H. Tilman was the first European to explore this region in 1949, and very few have ever retraced his footsteps.

Day 8-9: To Nasim Pati (3700m/4hrs) & Panch Pokhari (4074m/3hrs).

Panch Pokhari is named after 5 holy ponds and thousands of pilgrims climb to the sacred Panch Pokhari Lakes during the monsoon. There is a Mahadev Temple located here and from the top of Panch Pokhari we gain views of the Jugal Himal and Rolwaling.

Day 10-11: To Tin Pokhari (4255m).

We are now well above the tree line as we make a short climb from Panch Pokhari to the ridgeline and continue north crossing spurs and basins until we descend into a valley and a final climb to Tin Pokhari.

Day 12-13: Cross Tilman Pass (5308m) to north high camp (4720m).

There are two routes through the lower rocky section of the pass and it will depend on conditions as to which one we choose to ascend. This is quite a challenging pass and there will be loose rock and scree to negotiate. Once we reach a steep rock face after the initial climb we traverse to the left and climb directly onto the snowfield of the pass. The pass is to the northwest of the snowfield. We then descend a steep snow slope and rocky gullies,care should be take here as the gullies can be icy. We may fix a handline and your leader will advise the plan after assessing the conditions. The pass crossing will be a long day of approx. 7-9 hours. We camp at the northern shore of a lake.

Day 14: To Kyangjin Gompa (3830m), approx. 7hrs.

We are now approaching the main Langtang Trail to Kyangjin Gompa where there are many teahouses. There is a nearby cheese factory that is well worth a visit and of course a visit to the Gompa. There is a viewpoint on a hill to the north of Kyangjin Gompa with prayer flags adorning the summit, and time permitting this is a great vantage point also worth the effort.

Day 15-16: To Ghoratabela (3030m) & Syabru Besi (1503m).

We are now travelling along the clearly marked main trail of the Langtang trek. Following the river we wind through many tea houses and small villages to the end of the trail at Syabru Besi.
