Day 01 : Arrive Kathmandu , transfer to the hotel,

We have an early departure for the 7 hour drive to our starting point at the foot of the Langtang Valley. The road takes a spectacular route, climbing high over the ridges to escape the Kathmandu Valley and providing us with a superb panorama of the Himalaya, including the Annapurnas, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and the peaks of the Langtang region that we will soon become better acquainted with. We then plunge down into the Trisuli River valley which we follow for most of the day’s drive.
