We will also pass by a series of majestic waterfalls flowing over house-sized boulders and be able to bath in soothing hot springs. At numerous points on the trek, we will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the snow covered white giant Langtang Lirung (7200m).In the friendly Sherpa village of Kyanjing Gompa (3800m), we will experience the spiritual lifestyle of the dedicated Buddhist monks who worship in a beautiful Monastery dating back to the 1300s. We will also have the opportunity to visit the traditional cheese factory, seeing how this delicious food is made by hand.
