Langtang means, (Lang +Tang) Lang “Yak” and Tang “to follow” hence the name Yak to follow valley. Langtang kyanging Gomba trek is narrow valley situated 195 Km north of Kathmandu, lies close to the Tibetan border. It takes about six to nine hour bus ride from Kathmandu to Syabru Base. From Syabru Base, you walk for a couple of days amongst beautiful snow peaks of the Ganesh and Langtang ranges. Follow the Langtang Khola finally arriving at Kyanjin Gompa at 3900m above sea level. Kyanjin Gompa is the furthest place in the valley where you will find lodges to stay. 

There are many options to explore one or more days around Kyanjing Gomba valley. The cheese factory near the Gomba was started as a Swiss project in 1955, with rounds of cheese carried to Kathmandu over the Ganja La. Climb the lateral moraine to east of the glacier. If you want to climb up to the trough on the west side of the glacier, you will come to as often frozen lake. Head east from Kyangjin Gomba to reach Tsego Ri as excellent view point, head west from Yala Kharka or continue circling the hill, reaching the prayer flag-festooned summit (4984 meters) in 2 hours. From top to the south you can see Ganjala pass leading into Helambu and Naya Kanga, the trekking peak summit to its west. The surrounding peaks are quit spectacular. From Kyangjin Gomba, you can also head up to the valley to Langsisa, the next to last summer pasturing settlement. A head lays the main Langtang Glacier and the Tibetan border, a hard day’s climb away. To the south lie beautiful Buddha peak and the terminus of the East Langtang glacier. There is big reddish rock at Langsisa that according to legend is that color because of holy man living outside the valley lost his Yak and tracked it to this place. The Yak died here {Langsisa mean place where the Yak (Lang) died (sisa)}. A few miles up to the valley to the southeast, two big rock gendarmes stand a hundred feet above the glacier. They are said to represent two Buddhist saints, Shakya Muni and Guru Rimpoche.  Our trekking itinerary recommend descend to Syabru Base from Pairo and take bus/jeep to Kathmandu. If you have few more days you can continues trekking to Gosaikuna – Helambu as well.
