After the check-in process is complete, you can unwind and sleep at the hotel. To familiarize you with some good restaurants, ATMs, money changers, and other vital locations you might need during your stay in Thamel, the office staff will later accompany you on a brief tour of Thamel.

Day 02 A full day of sightseeing around Kathmandu valley, the capital city

After breakfast the very following morning, you’ll go for a full day of sightseeing in the Kathmandu Valley. You can go to Swyambhunath, a very old temple that is fundamentally classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the holy Pashupatinath Temple.

The highlights of our guided tour are the largest Buddhist Stupa at Boudhanath and the magnificent arts and historic architecture of Kathmandu Durbar Square showcasing the ancient Nepalese culture.

With its renowned fine arts and old-world architecture, Patan City will charm you with a visit. When you go back to your hotel, you’ll have time to wander through the well-known streets, eat supper, and possibly explore the neighborhood. The day concludes with an authentic Nepalese dinner at a restaurant serving Nepali culture.

Day 03 Drive from Kathmandu to Dhunche (1,966m/6,448ft)

After breakfast, we’ll head for a picturesque drive with good views of the Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, and Langtang Himalayan Ranges along a zigzag uphill route. We travel via the market town of Trisuli on our route to Dhunche, after which we continue on a gravel road. We will reach Dhunche, where there are numerous teahouses and facilities, after a roughly six to seven-hour lengthy drive. We need to register at the checkpoint center and the National Park Office.

Day 04 Trek from Dhunche to Thulo Syabru (2,250m/7,380ft)

Starting in Dhunche, we hike up to Thulo Bharkhu along a wide motorway trail. To get to Barbal, our trail ascends sharply through dense oak and pine forest. From there, our hike follows a simple, undulating path through a temperate forest with sporadic views of Langtang valley and Ganesh Himal. We hike up to the ridge’s summit and eventually reach the Tamang settlement of Thulo Syabru.

Day 05 Trek from Thulo Sybru to Lama Hotel (2,470m/8101ft)

Following the path that descends to Langtang Khola before turning east on the actual left bank of the Langtang Khola, our walk continues from Thulo Syabru. Minor ascents and descents continue as we make our way upstream toward Bamboo. Before navigating a few landslide zones and climbing a switchback to reach Rimche, we make our way toward a suspension bridge crossing. From Rimche, our trail ascends a little before descending to the Lama Hotel, where we will spend the night.

Day 06 Trek from Lama Hotel to Langtang Village (3,330m/10,922ft)

After breakfast, we leave the Lama Hotel and proceed down the trail through a thick forest of hemlock, birch, oak, and mountain bamboo. We will have the chance to see wild monkeys and various bird species while on our journey. As we continue our ascent, we stick to the trail’s steep ascent to reach Ghoratabela. At Ghoratabela, there is an army checkpoint. Following registration, we continue our trip by crossing Chyamki and Kangtangsa, two nearby small towns. From there, we will ascend one last time, just a little distance, to Langtang village.

Day 07 Trek from Langtang Village to Kyangjin Gompa (3,870m/12,693ft)

The track from Langtang continues uphill through more rocky terrain, passing past the small yak-herding communities of Mundu, Sindum, and Yampha before following the course of Langtang Khola to Kyanjin Gompa (3870m). With views of mountains and peaks clad in snow, it is a short hike that takes around 3 hours. Yak Cheese Factory can be explored during the day. Impressive are the breathtaking vistas of the countryside and mountains.

Day 08 Acclimatization Day in Kyanjin Gompa

Today is the trek’s day of rest and exploration. The highest points of this hike are Kyanjin Ri (4350m) and Tserko Ri (5,000m), where we may climb to witness the breathtaking ice faces and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung. We can also visit the monastery and the cheese factory. For a breathtaking view of the Langtang Lirung, Langtang range, Kinshung, and Yansa Tsenji take a leisurely hike. We can also choose to detour Langshisa Kharka. There are many different side trips to choose from because the North’s surroundings are full of small, lonely valleys. Spend the evening returning to Kyanjin.

Day 09 Trek from Kyanjin Gompa to Yak Kharka (4,600m/15088ft)

Our trail dips sharply for around twenty minutes to reach a suspension bridge over the Langtang river after spending a full day of rest at Kyanjin Gompa. We will continue on the track that gradually climbs into alpine vegetation once we cross the bridge. With juniper bushes lining both sides of the trail and fantastic views of the glacier and Langtang Lirung, our upward adventure continues. We will set up camp for the night in Yak Kharka when we get there.

Day 10 Trek from Yak Kharka to Dorje Lakpa Base Camp (4,950m/16,236ft)

After breakfast, we gather our belongings and proceed to follow the trail as it ascends gradually to higher altitudes. It is best to occasionally take a break from exerting ourselves since as we ascend, we may become extremely weary, lightheaded, or exhausted. We will reach a suitable campground at 4,950 meters, where we will establish our Base Camp, after a few exhausting hours of climbing. The camps will be immediately put up by our Sherpa team, and all essential preparations will be made to continue ascending Mt. Dorje Lakpa.

Day 11-30 Climbing Period for Mt. Dorje Lakpa (6,966m/22,848ft) and back to base camp

With sufficient climbing instruction and appropriate acclimatization, we will spend many days preparing for the climb. We will follow the direction and instructions provided by our experienced climbing specialists and move towards the peak once we are fully acclimatized and properly outfitted with all the climbing gear. As we ascend to the peak of Mount Dorje Lakpa, we will traverse several challenging portions. When we reach the summit, we are rewarded with stunning views of the Langtang Himal Ranges, including Shishapangma, Gangchenpo, Pemthang Karpo, and Langtang Lirung rise across the Tibetan border. Before returning to base camp for our overnight camping trip, we will spend some time at the top and then descend using the same path.

Day 31 Trek back from Base camp to Yak Kharka

We start our return trip by retracing our steps and taking the same trail that leads back to Yak Kharka after the NGT team and I successfully reach the summit of Mt. Dorje Lakpa. We’ll return to Yak Kharka for our overnight camping after a rather short downhill trek.

Day 32 Trek from Yak Kharka to Langtang Village

Following the same path that descends to pass a suspension bridge over the Langtang River, we continue our ascent from Yak Kharka. To go to Kyangjin Gompa, our trail climbs for a while after crossing the bridge. We will return to Langtang village for our overnight stay after an easy and delightful trek from Kyangjin Gompa.

Day 33 Trek from Langtang to Lama Hotel

We pack up our belongings and continue to retrace our ways on the main trail back to Ghoratabela after eating breakfast in Langtang village. From there, our track is a fairly straightforward descent through regions of dense woodland until we reach Lama Hotel, where we will spend the night.

Day 34 Trek from Lama Hotel to Syabru Besi (1,467m/4,811ft)

The final day of our walk begins at the Lama Hotel, and we follow the main trail back to Syabrubesi while retracing our steps. Today’s hike will be rather straightforward as we descend through a forest of rhododendron, oak, and pine trees, passing through several towns and terraced farmlands. We will spend the evening celebrating the end of the Dorje Lakpa Expedition with the team when we get to Syabrubesi.

Day 35 Drive back to Kathmandu drive by tourist coach

Today after breakfast we drive back to Kathmandu

Day 36 Leisure day in Kathmandu

Day off in Kathmandu. You can request that your guide take you on a tour of the Kathmandu Valley. You can visit the Narayanhiti Museum, which was formerly the residence of the last monarch of Nepal, as well as other museums in the valley on this day. You could also visit Nagarkot’s summit.

I have used Unique Path three times and each time the team were all helpful, friendly and informative. Every aspect of our trip to Nepal was taken care of - Pick up at the airport to take us to our hotel. Next day the excitement of getting our trekking details and depending on the trip setting out with our guide and porter. My husband and I prefer to hike on our own, so we did no group options. Our itinerary was always followed exactly. When I go hiking in Nepal this company is my first point of contact. They are a great team and are totally recommended by me and my husband.

Unique Path is a great choice for anyone who wants to explore the Himalayas. My wife and I made several treks with Unique Path to Manaslu, Kangchenjunga, Tilicho Lake, and Mustang. It goes without saying, that the scenery in Nepal is stunning. Lots of opportunity to learn about the culture and religion and traditions of Nepal. The people we met along the way were engaging and wonderful. Unique Path's staff was fantastic throughout all the trips. They were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They arranged everything from transportation to accommodation to food. They also provided all the necessary equipment and guidance and handled all the permit applications. I highly recommend Unique Path trekking to anyone who loves adventure and nature. These were once-in-a-lifetime experiences that I will never forget. I am available as a reference. David

Myself and 2 buddies hired Unique Path Trekking to coordinate an EBC trek back in 2014. We couldn't have been more happy with the results...Everything went flawlessly and we had the adventure of a lifetime. Babu and his staff / guides / porters were top-notch and I highly recommend them to anyone who may be reading this.

As with all treks, there will be unforeseen circumstances and you’re always beholden to nature. So you want a guide and an agency that is not only experienced enough but also sensitive and quick to changes on ground. I am very grateful for the deep experience that our guide, Dambar had. He made us feel safe and constantly had everything under control despite the weather and some early sickness some of us had. Coupled with his sharp wit and deep knowledge, this became such an enjoyable climb that was filled with priceless stories that I can’t wait to tell the kids about. The porters too were a lively bunch that ultimately became friends and we shared lots of fun moments on the mountain together. Babu ensured that our arrivals, arrangements and any administrative hassles were smooth and out of our minds so we could focus on the climb ahead. Thank you Unique Path trekking & expedition. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a great time while knowing you’re in safe hands!

We were very fortunate to have Unique Path Trekking for our EBC with 3 Himalaya passes expedition, we were so happy/satisfied with Unique Path trekking. Babu ( owner of Unique Path Trekking) is so kind, knowledgeable and mellow personality so does their staff ( all guides and porters ). We had great time during this expedition in terms of lodging/food. We had large group ( ~ 18 ppl ) and believe or not no one had any single complain of food. Their guides and porters are so knowledgeable, smart, humorous made our entire expedition lots of fun. They take care of us with positive attitudes with smiley face in entire trip. I definitely recommend Unique Path Trekking for any expedition in Himalaya ( we're looking forward to go with them in Annapurna expedition in near future ).

I just returned from a wonderful hike to Everest base camp with helicopter return. I was traveling solo am so grateful to Manager Babu and guide Suresh for looking after me. It is a trip I will remember the rest of my life. We started with a half day tour of Kathmandu and then flew to lukla on the next day to begin the trek. All the arrangements were made ahead of time and the folks unique path team constantly got on the phone to make sure the logistics went smoothly. Suresh kept a moderate pace and a great sense of humor. We made good time throughout the hikes and always got to the lodges on time and in daylight with energy left for the next day. The weather also cooperated this March and we had beautiful sunny skies and gorgeous Mountain View’s throughout the trek. I really could not ask for anything more and would very much recommend unique path
