Kathmandu Valley Sightseeing Tour
Today we explore the Kathmandu valley. SWOYAMBBHUNATH: Climb the many steps to Swayambhunath (the monkey temple) with its commanding views of Kathmandu, its whitewashed stupas and its unique synthesis of Buddhism and Hinduism. PASHUPATINATH: It’s a sacred temple complex on the banks of the holy Bagmati River. Here, monkeys run up and down the steps of the burning ghats, and trident-bearing saddhus draped in burnt-orange and yellow sit serenely meditating - when they are not posing for photos for rupees. BOUDHANATH: The striking Buddha eyes of Boudhanath Stupa watch over a lively and colorful Tibetan community and attract pilgrims from all over the Himalayan Buddhist realm. In the midst of traditional gompas, and hung with long strings of multi-colored prayer ags, Boudhanath attracts Sherpas, Tibetans and tourists alike for daily circumambulations (koras) of the stupa. KATHMANDU DURBAR SQUARE: Durbar Square, one of the old capitals of the Kathmandu valley, is a synthesis of Hindu and Buddhist temples, stupas and statues, and is often the site of festivals, marriages and other ceremonies.
Drive from Kathmandu to Dhunche (1966m.):
It takes about eight hours. You head north out of Kathmandu driving through scenic foothills and ridgeline vistas to Dhunche. The rst part of your drive uptoTrishuli Bazaar is quite smooth. The path now moves along the gravel road. During the rainy season, the path is sometime blocked due to landslides. Your drive from Kathamandu to the destination is to be made by either local bus or land cruiser.
Trek from SyabruGaon to Lama Hotel (2470m.):
It takes about hours. The trail descends along the ridge on Syabru’s main street and then drop to the GhopcheKhola (2050 m.) and again descends to the Landslide (1810m.). Afterwards, you trek ascends gently to Rimche (2400m.) through Bamboo (1960m.) and at the end your trail is level to the Lama Hotel. En route you could see red pandas, wild monkeys and bear if you are lucky.
Trek from Lama Hotel to Langtang village (3430m.):
It takes about six hours. As you continue climbing there are occasional glimpses of LangtangLirung between the trees. At Ghora Tabela (3000m), the trail emerges from the forest. While walking here, you can catch a glimpse of white monkeys and local birds. Once there was a Tibetan resettlement project here, but now it is a Nepalese army post though it has no permanent inhabitants. The trail continues to climb gently and the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during the summer months. There is a monastery which we can visit shortly before arriving at the village of Langtang, the headquarters of the Langtang National Park. The houses of Langtang and its neighboring villages are of the at-roofed Tibetan style, surrounded by stone walls enclosing elds of buckwheat, potatoes, wheat, turnips and barley.
Trek from Langtang Village to Kyangjin (3870m.):
It takes about three hours...CONT...The trail climbs gradually through small villages and yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyangjin. There is a small monastery and government-operated cheese factory. You will arrive at Kyangjin by lunch time allowing time to acclimatize and explore the area. It is a dramatic setting, with snow covered peaks surrounding us in all directions. At this point, you can enjoy the panoramic view of DorjeLakpa (6990m.), LangtangRi (6370m.) and Langtang Lirung (7245m.).
