Day 5: Kyanjin Gompa (3850 m) to Rimche (2500 m)The village of Kyanjin has such peaceful and good vibes that it is recommended to spend a day doing nothing here just sipping tea and reading a book in the garden of the guest house. Walk to the Gompa and the cheese factory is a good thing to do in the morning. The walk back towards Syabrubensi can be done in a day but its too much of descend to do. Splitting it up in 2 days is ideal with a break on first day around Lama Hotel either in Rimche or Bambo is recommended. I personally decided to stay at Rimche as the the guesthouses at Lama Hotel are often packed and it feels too stuffy in there. Also, there is not much bargaining power to exercise there.

Day 3: Gumnachowk (2700 m) to Kyanjin Gompa (3850 m)Walking along the valley besides the Langtang Khola in the morning towards Lantang is a pleasure with so many birds to be sighted along the way. There are major landslides along this way and gives one the perspective of the kind of destruction the earthquake caused here. Watch any loose stone falling as you cross the landslide area. The route upto Ghoda tabela (3000 m) is a steep climb after which the valley suddenly opens up and the tree cover starts diminishing with every step towards Kyanjin Gompa. As the name suggests, one can see a lot of horses and yak and other cattle in the valley from here to Kyanjin. The peaks of Tseko Ri start showing up. Couple of hours after Ghoda Tabela, one can reach the Langtang Village. This is a good place to halt for lunch.
Day 4: Trek from Langtang Village to Kyanjin Gompa (3,900m)Today is a relatively easy day. After breakfast you will leave Langtang village and start your trek towards the Kyanjing Gompa at an altitude of 3817 m. The trek route is quite easy and the trail is scenic. You can leisurely trek your way up to the Gompa. The Kyanjing Gompa is a serene and beautiful place and you will get grand views of Mt. Ganchhenpo and Mt. Langtang Lirung. You can also visit the surrounding areas like the interesting Yak cheese factory, the monasteries and the traditional local houses.
