Early morning after having breakfast, we drive from Kathmandu to Dhunche (1950m.) which takes about seven hours. Along the bus journey, we will view a beautiful village and snow Scrapped Mountain along the Langtang Himalaya and it will make our trekking become pleasant and touch our heart.

Trekking and bird watching from Sing Gompa to Cholangpati is a popular activity for nature enthusiasts in Nepal. Sing Gompa, located at an elevation of 3,330 meters, serves as the starting point for this scenic trek. As you travel towards Cholangpati, which is located at a higher elevation of 3,600 meters, you'll be surrounded by stunning views of the Himalayan Mountain Range and have the chance to see a variety of bird species along the way.
Trekking from Cholangpti to Gosainkunda (4361m.) via Laurebenayak La (3920m.) takes about six hours. The first part of the trail giving and exotic feeling emerges gently ascent up to Laurebenayak. Then the trails steeply ascend all the way to Gosainkunda. We follow a rugged trail with dramatic views; to the west Himal Chuli (7893m) Manaslu range (8156mm), Ganesh Himal range(7406m), Tibetan peaks and Langtang Lirung. On a clear day, even the Annapurna range can be seen rising up behind and to the north across the valley is Langtang Lirung. We pass a few huts in the high pasture of Laurebenayak, cross a small ridge and have your first views of the holy lakes. There are about a dozen lakes in the Gosainkunda Basin, the main three being Saraswatikunda, Bhairabkunda, and Gosainkunda. According to legend, Gosainkunda was created by Shiva when he pierced a glacier with his trident to obtain water to quench his thirst after having swallowed a poison that threatened to destroy the world. Stay overnight at tea house.
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.
On this day, we gradually descend down to the river at first and then ascend to Thulo Syabru. Enroute, you will be fascinated by the views of Lang tang Himal and many more. Passing through pine and juniper forest, from here the trail starts ascending up through beautiful green forests with distant views of Thulo Syabru on top. Thulo Syabru is a beautiful Sherpa and Tamang village from where you can observe the miraculous vista of Langtang Himal and Ganesh Himal. We will camp overnight here.
Trek from Thulo syapru to Dhunche takes about five hours. The first part of the trails ascends gradually through mineral water factory up to Ghatte Khola (stream). Thulo Syabru is a beautiful Sherpa and Tamang village from where we can observe the miraculous vista of Langtang Himal and Ganesh Himal.

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.
