This Trek starts from Shyabrubesi. it is a little market and became busy because of Kerung Tibetan Border. The next two days are spent climbing briskly up the gorge like a lower valley, where oaks and rhododendron give way to peaceful hemlock and larch forest; after ascending an old moraine, snowy peaks suddenly loom ahead and the gorge opens into a U-shaped glacial valley. Springtime is excellent for flowers here, and in autumn the berberis bushes turn a deep rust color. this village occupies the upper valley: Langtang (3.300m), the bigger of the two, makes a good place to spend a night and acclimatize, while Kyangjin (3.750m) boasts a small gompa, a cheese “factory” (fabulous yogurt) and an attractive chalet-lodge. The Langtang Glacier is a full day’s walk further up the valley. You’ll want to spend at least a couple of nights in the upper valley to explore the glaciers and ascend the 5033-meter YalaPeak (TsergoRi), from which you can view an awesome white wilderness of peaks, including 8013-meter Shisha Pangma.
