MORIMOTO BASE CAMP ( 4780 M) & TSERGO RI / TSERKO RI (CHERGORI) (4984 M), LANGTANG VALLEY, NEPAL ~ Successfully completed this less trodden trek in Oct-Nov 2022. Taking the path less trodden sometimes means coming to the point where the average tourist stops and venturing beyond. Most trekkers get up to Lamtang/Langtang village or Kyangjin Gompa and are stuck up by the views all around. Not that it is not a beautiful place to take a break: the views are out of this world. But after a day or ... See more two, if you itch to move on to see what is around the bend in the valley, you must swing past Kyangjin (3830 m) and Langshisha Kharka (4240 m), you start getting an indication of what is a high altitude Himalayan trek is all about. 360 degrees of mountain views, so spectacular that, they seem to have been chiseled in heaven by the Gods. Two such exquisite views we got. One from Morimoto Base Camp at 4780m which is a day beyond Langshisha Kharka from where one can see the panorama of peaks like Triangle (20571 ft), Ramthang Karpo Ri (22524 ft), Langshisha Ri (21064 ft), Morimoto (20181 ft), Bhandang Ri (21178 ft) and Gangchen Po (20712 ft). Another, trek to the 5011 m viewpoint of Tsergo Ri / Tserko Ri (Chergori), which is one of the 7 best viewpoints in Nepal Himalayas, along with Kalapathar, Gokyo Ri, Chhukung Ri, Tsergo Ri, Khopra Danda, Poon Hill, and Kyangjin Ri, from where one can see one of the most beautiful 360-degree views of peaks in sequence, like Langtang Lirung (23711 ft), Kimshung (22247 ft), Ubra (20551 ft), Yansa Tsenji (21545 ft), Shalbachum (21923 ft), Yala Peak (18045 ft), Ramthang Karpo Ri (22523 ft), Langshisha Ri (21063 ft), Gurkapo Ri (22608 ft), Loenpo Gang (22897 ft), Dorje Lakpa (22854 ft), Kanshurm (19941 ft), Ganchen Po (20712 ft), Dshabu Ri (16152 ft), Pangen Dopku (19449 ft), Ganja La Chuli (18543 ft), Naya Kanga (19180 ft), Baden Powell Scout Peak (18734 ft), Chimisedan Lek (18448 ft). What more can we expect? And after the 2015 earthquake, this valley has been one of the most iconic trek routes in the Nepal Himalayas. As you hurry back down to the town, city, or home, racing through the descending darkness, the presence of the magnificent peaks doesn't leave you. It leaves a mark on your soul forever. I thank my team members Soumendu Chatterjee, Partha Sarathi Moulik, Sumit Mukherjee, Ajoy Chakraborty, Madhusudan Das, Pulak Pakrashi, Tapan Ballav, Subhajit Chaudhuri and Pratyay Rakshit. And thanks to our guide and philosopher Binod Karki, and Himalayan Adventure Intl Treks, who helped us personally with this trek. These are some casual mobile shots of the venture See less...

Langtang Valley Trek, March 2023

Langtang Valley is situated in the mountains of north-central Nepal, in Bagmati province. The valley lies within the Langtang National Park, which borders Tibet. The trail from Syabrubesi to Ghoratabela goes by the side of Langtang Khola, through the dense forest of bamboo, oak, maple, pine, and various types of rhododendron. Animals found in this jungle are Himalayan black bears, snow leopards, yak, red pandas,s and various species of birds. After Ghoratabela, the valley widens up with a p... See more icturesque view of the mighty Himalayas. The local inhabitants of the Langtang Valley refer to each other as 'Langtangpa'. They generally follow Tibetan Buddhism and speak the Tibetan language. The Langtangpas regard Mt. Langtang Lirung as their 'yu-lha', their local country god. Langtang Valley is believed to be the Beyul Dagam Namgo, one of the many hidden valleys blessed by Guru Padmasambhava. The traditional livelihoods of the Langtangpas have centered around agropastoralism. Swiss cheese-making was introduced in Langtang in the 1950s by Werner Schulthess. Over time, Swiss cheese became a popular product of Langtang, and its production in the valley continues to this day. The nearest motorable road-head for the Langtang valley is Syabrubesi. The distance of Syabrubesi from Kathmandu is 125 km. But due to bad road conditions, it usually takes 7-8 hours to drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. Bus leaves every day from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi at 6 am to 8 am as well as other defined times. The bus station in Kathmandu is called the ‘New Bus Station’. Bus fare is NC 1040 per person. The Langtang Valley requires everyone except locals to have the TIMS permit (to be done from Kathmandu) and the Langtang National Park entry permit (to be done at Dhunche at NC 1500 person for the SAARC region). By early 2018, the centuries-old gompa at Kyanjin Gompa, which had been destroyed in the earthquake, had been rebuilt. The Swiss-cheese factory at Kyanjin Gompa village was destroyed too but has been rebuilt and become operational again. The Tea Houses, are available along the way where one can sleep in a comfortable bed with blankets, and have access to showers (at extra charge) and restaurant facilities. Most of the villages are Tibetan, which gave us a great insight into their unique culture. Wifi costs anywhere from free to NC300 to use wifi at the guesthouses. NTC Sim worked in most spots after Rimche with a weak signal. The mountain seen on the trail is Mt. Langshisha, Mt. Langtang Lirung, Kiyanjin Ri, Tsergori, Yala Peak, Ganesh Himal, and many more. Our itinerary was Day 1 Kolkata to Kathmandu Day 2: Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1550m) 8 hours by bus Syabrubesi to Rimche (2,500m) 6 hours (stayed at Ganesh View Hotel & Lodge) Day 3: Rimche to Langtang Gompa (3600 meters) via Ghoratabela 7 hours (stayed at Langtang View guest house) Day 4: Langtang Gompa to Kyanjin Gompa (3,870m) 6 hours. (Stayed at Moonlight Guest House) Day 5: Kyanjin Gompa Day 6: Kyanjin Gompa to Langtang Lirung Lake and down to Ghoratabela (3030 m) 6 hrs (stayed at hotel Tibetan) Day 7: Ghoratabela to Syabrubesi (1550m) 7 hours Day 8: Drive from Syabrubesi to Kathmandu for 7 hours. Day 9- Kathmandu Day 10 - Kathmandu to Kolkata Note: There is an army and police check post at Dhunche where they check the permits and travelers' bags and rucksacks. At Ghoratabela there is another police check post where the permits are checked and thereafter allow the trekkers to move ahead. In the entire route starting from Syabrubesi foods are quite expensive where dal - bhat costs NC 600-700, one cup of black tea at NC 150, and one piece of boiled egg at NC 200. In Langtang Gompa and Kiyanjin electricity is available and mobiles can be charged without any extra cost. Our trek was organized by Mr. Binod Karki. Himalayan Adventure Intl Treks See less...
