Day 1: Kathmandu >> Syabrubesi (Bus Ride)
We take a crowded bus to Syabrubesi and spend the night there. We consume generous amounts of Sukuti and play Syabru, a new card game conceived there.
Day 2: Syabrubesi >> Lama Hotel
We make a gentle ascent via a trail by the side of a sparkling river. The route is quite busy with frequent Hello’s, Hi’s, and Namaste’s. We have the best dal-bhat at Bamboo and the worst at Lama Hotel.
Day 3: Lama Hotel >> Langtang
We meet Yair Gurlavi (Prakash) who cracks jokes every now and then, and makes for a fun companion. We finish our bottle of brandy and start with rum to keep ourselves warm and occupied.
Day 4: Langtang >> Kyanjin Gompa
We reach Kyanjin Gompa without any rush; playing cards, watching yaks, and observing horses along the way. We then climb Kyanjin Ri in the evening to acclimatize.
Day 5: Kyanjin Gompa >> Yala Base Camp
We get hold of Chhime, a local guide cum owner of Snow Leopard Guest House at Kyanjin Gompa, and head to Yala Base Camp. We spend the cold night in a yak-shed; watching the stars through wide cracks in the roof.
Day 6: Yala Base Camp >> Yala Peak >> Kyanjin Gompa
We scale the Yala Peak, leaving aside the last technical climb of around 20 meters. On the way down, we meet Austin Lord who we think is an inspector but who turns out to be a friend’s friend. We drink more rum at Kyanjin Gompa to celebrate our achievement.
Day 7: Kyanjin Gompa >> River Side
We make a casual and unhurried descent back to where we came from. The day is full of pleasant reflection and a sense of satisfaction.
Day 8: River Side >> Syabrubesi >> Kathmandu (Jeep Ride)
After reaching Syabrubesi, we book a room to spend the night in but then find a jeep for hire. We pay for the unused room, buy some beer for the journey, and return to Kathmandu that very night; ending a journey that we will cherish forever.

Good – I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and related information ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, web site theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Excellent task.
You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
