Day 04: Dhunche to Syabru Village (2130m)
From Dhunche, the trail turns east down the village's main street. Using one or two short cuts to avoid the longer dirt road loops, we cross the Trisuli Khola and follow the contouring road to the village of Bharkhu. Climbing steeply from Bharkhu, the trail reaches a ridge where we enter the Langtang valley. From here, on the north we can view the snow peaks in Tibet, and to the east, the top of Langtang Lirung can be seen. Descending, we come to the village of Syabru strung out along a ridge.

The main trail to Langtang descends along the ridge, through the village, then continues the descent to the Langtang Khola. We follow the river, climbing through uninhabited forest of oak and rhododendron alive with birds. Passing the single dwelling of Chongong, we climb along a steep trail to our camp in the forest.
Day 06: Lama Hotel to Langtang village (3500m)
As we continue climbing, there are occasional glimpses of Langtang Lirung between the trees. At Ghora Tabela (3000m), the trail emerges into open ground. There was once 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 up 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 neighboring villages are of Tibetan style, surrounded by stone walls enclosing fields of buckwheat, potatoes, wheat, turnips and barley.
Day 07: Langtang Village to Kyangjin (3800m)
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. Here there is a small monastery and a government-operated cheese factory. We shall arrive at Kyangjin by lunch time, allowing extra time to acclimatize and explore the area.

From Kyangjin, we continue further up the valley, climbing above the Langtang Khola and contouring around the hillside to the yersa at Yala. From our camp here, there are tremendous views of the peaks of Dorje Lakpa (7000m), Kangchenpo (6400m) and Lonpo Gang (7100m).From our camp at Yala it is only a short way to the top of Tsergo Ri (5066m).

The climb is not difficult and provides good acclimatization and training for our climb of Peak. The climb is straightforward being little more than a walk up steep snow slopes of around 30 degrees. Ice axe and crampons will be needed and most of the climb will involve walking roped together up the glacier.
