Theill Peter from Denmark was with us this spring. His fifteen days long vacation allocated for the Langtang Trek showed some wonderful sides whereas; the unfavorable weather forbade him to overcome the challenge of crossing the Laurebina La Pass. However,at the end of the trip the visitor from our exclusive country partner Kipling Travel-Mr. Theill was a very happy client.
Theill started his trekking on the 10th of April 2013. The weather was perfect till the 19th. During these days he explored the every possible highlighted sites of the area. He was at Kyanjin Gompa, he hiked to Tsergo Ri, he made his presence feel at the sacred Sing Gompa and also visited the origin of Trishuli River- Gosainkunda. On 20th as he was ready to trek through the Laurebina La Pass the heavy snowfall compelled him to end up the further journey. Whatsoever, the major portion of his Langtang Trek was already accomplished and so without any hard feelings he returned back to Dunche. From Dunche he boarded the bus back to Kathmandu and arrived to the capital earlier to his pre-scheduled itinerary. If he was able to cross the Laurebina La Pass his Langtang Trek would have ended at Sundarijal. But when nature is an obstacle what else can be done?
Five Danish visitors Mr. Andress, Ms. Malene and Mr. Keld Ramussens with Ms. Anne Olsen and Ms. Nina Joye Smith were in Nepal through our sole Country Partner Kipling Travel. The group had planned 2 weeks long Langtang trek with Explore Himalaya from March 12 to March 30, 2013.
Langtang is a small valley sandwiched between the central Himalayan range to the north and slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the Tibetan border to the south is just 19 miles north of Nepalese capital Kathmandu. The highest peak in the region Langtang Lirung (7246m) dominates the northern valley; Gang Chenpo and Naya Kanga lie to the south; and Dorje Lapka (6966m) protects the eastern border of the Langtang valley. Langtang holds over 70 glaciers including Ganesh Himal and high altitude lakes like Parvatikunda, Gosainkunda, Dudhkunda and Bhairavkunda. Langtang National Park with wide range of plant and animal biodiversities lures bountiful wildlife lovers to this trekking trial every year.
Their real Langtang trek began at Syabrubenshi on March 14 2013- a trek beginning point which came after nine hours road journey from Kathmandu. They pursued an ascending trial along the Bhote Koshi river through ethnic Tamang villages, thriving emerald woodlands and the broadly stretched Kyangin valley encircled by snow-white peaks from all fours sides, and up to Kyangin at 3800 meter, where they got an opportunity to climb Tsergo Ri [5024m.]. After an ascent of Tsergo Ri, they went to Gosainkunda where Ms. Olsen had a severe knee problem and hence was immediately rescued. Ms. Nina accompanied Olsen to Kathmandu during the rescue. However, rest of the trekkers completed their trek on March 28, 2013 at Sundarijal.
Three British citizens Mr. Philip Michael Hart, Ms. Louise Frances Summer and Mr. Michael Graham Hart had one of the most elite moments of their lives with Explore Himalaya. During their two weeks visit to Nepal from 2nd December to 15 December, 2012 they accomplished the trekking retreat to the Langtang region. Their trek covered Langtang National Park, Kyanjin Gompa, Sing Gompa and Gosainkunda.
The major part of the trek trails the Trishuli River and Langtang Khola. Trishuli River originates at Gosainkunda 4312m. Gosainkunda is a popular Hindu pilgrimage of the Himalayan region. Langtang valley itself falls within Langtang National Park, which is a home of Tamang people in the high altitude. The gompas on the trial Kyanjin and Sing are the secluded homes of Tibetan monks in the region.
The visitors after making the worthy visit to the outstanding sites in the Langtang region made their ways towards the capital via Ghopte, Khutumsang Chisopani and Sundarijal. Langtang trek introduced the visitors to one of the world’s most beautiful valleys- to the Langtang and Jugal Himal with their individual towering peaks.
The visitors from UK made the perfect journey to the Langtang region, which enabled them to have the correct perception regarding the existing beauties in the remote Nepal as well as the cultural practices by the Tamangs and Tibetans in the region.
After, the tour before making the departure our visitors wished to explore more places in Nepal on the next visit.
Gina Lee and I were thrilled with how smoothly everything went. We saw and learned much, and we marveled at the natural beauty of the places we visited.
