our client says Reise ins geheimnisvolle Königreich Mustang Am 1. Mai 2010 machten sich, 7 abenteuerhungrige Schweizer auf den langen Flug nach Kathmandu. Einerseits mit grosser Vorfreude und andererseits mit einem etwas mulmigen Gefühl, da in ganz Nepal einen Generalstreik vorausgesagt wurde und wir nicht wussten ob unser Trekking ins Königreich Mustang wirklich zustande kommen wird. Doch am Flughafen in Kathmandu wurden wir schon von Yagya unserem Trekkinguide vor Ort freundlich empfangen und er cauffierte uns mit dem Bus das erste Mal durch die Strassen von Kathmandu in unser Hotel im Stadtteil Tamel. Durch den Streik waren alle Einheimischen auf der Strasse, überall wurden Parolen gerufen , rote Flaggen und T-Shirt getragen, es herrschte ein richtiges Chaos und das richtige Leben stand völlig still, ausser wir als Touristen wurden noch in der Stadt herumgefahren. Müde und froh sind wir dann im Hotel angekommen und genossen ein par Stunden für uns bis wir uns dann gemeinsam zum Abendessen trafen. read more View All

Kathmandu, Nepal Forecast
Langtang Region
Langtang is the closest trekking region to Kathmandu, indeed the Langtang trek can be started in Kathmandu itself.  From Sundarajil, just outside Kathmandu the fourteen day trek follows the Shiva pilgrim trail for 150 kilometres, over the Shiva Puri Ridge, over the Gosainkund Lekh via the Laurebina Pass at 4,700 metres.

The Langtang Trek provides an opportunity to see the nearly whole Nepalese Himalayan mountain range from Annapurna in the west, to Makalu in the east. On the morning of the second day, this amazing view can be seen for the first time from the top of the Shiva Puri Ridge.

The trek continues along a high ridge for 6 days until it crosses the Laurebina Pass. Just below the pass lies the Gosainkund Lakes at 4,300 metres. The Gosainkund lakes are the object of the Shiva pilgrim trail for they were once visited by Shiva himself. From here, the path descends to Syabru, an interesting village on the crest of a ridge.

The trek now enters the Langtang valley. The Langtang valley is sacred and no animals may be killed here. It is also a national park. The forest is full of wildlife.

Higher up, past the tree line, lies Kanjin Gompa, an architectural master piece. Its sloping walls complement the slopes of the mountain behind, Langtang Lirung.

The Langtang valley continues west and then north for another 50 kilometres beyond Kanjin Gompa. This is beyond the range of tea house trekking, for there are no lodges. This region was visited in the 1950s by TW Tilman, who found rumours of Yetis amongst the local herdsmen. Today, the upper Langtang region is visited mainly by expeditions to Dorje Lakpa and Shishi Pangma.

Finally the trek returns down the valley to Syabru Bensi from where the bus can be caught to Kathmandu.

The guidebook descriptions and photographs are the result of research undertaken during October 1999. Trips Of Langtang Region
