oday’s trail is a bit challenging as you have to pass through the Laurebinayak Pass. Initially, the trail skirts the shore of the lake before ascending towards the Laurebina Pass and then gradually descends down to the southeast on a rocky path. Some parts of the trail is very tricky, so you have to be more careful while you walk. Passing three more small lakes, the trail ascend and cross Laurebinayak Pass. After the pass, the path descends down to Phedi and you continue to walk up and down throughout crossing a rocky hill with pine, rhododendron trees. Laurebinayak gives impressive reasons of doing Lang tang Circuit Trekking. The view on the side of Langtang valley is impressive. Sunset over Ganesh Himal and Langtang Himalayan range looks amazing but we won’t get chance to see the sunset from here as we have to walk further to reach Ghopte. Further continuing our walk we’ll come to see some roofless stone herders’ huts, and from here the trail descends another ridge, crossing several streams and passing two waterfalls. After passing another stone hut, we climb to another ridge and reach Ghopte. Upon arrival at Ghopte, you can see overhanging rocks form a cave that is used as a campsite by the trekkers and we will be camping at the same destination today.  The Himalayan peaks look very close from here. High altitude can cause basic to mild headaches here, please consult with your guide if you have any symptoms like this.

Equipment List

Binoculars: Binoculars are arguably the most important tool for bird watching. They allow you to get a close-up view of birds without disturbing them. Look for binoculars with a magnification of 8x42 or 10x42, as these are popular choices for bird watchers.

Notebook and Pen: Keep a birding journal to record your observations, including the date, time, location, weather conditions, and the birds you've spotted. This can be a valuable resource for tracking your progress and sharing your experiences.

Camera or Smartphone with a Telephoto Lens: Photographing birds can be a great way to document your sightings and share your passion with others. A camera with a telephoto lens or a smartphone with a good camera and a telephoto attachment can help capture images of birds.

Spotting Scope: While not essential for beginners, a spotting scope is a powerful magnification device that can help you observe distant birds in detail. They are especially useful for more advanced birdwatchers.

Field Guidebook: A good field guidebook specific to the region you're bird watching in is invaluable. It helps you identify different bird species based on their appearance, behavior, and habitat. There are many field guides available, so choose one that suits your area of interest.
