It's a very pleasant place for an easy and progressive trek that goes through the beautiful vegetation of the Langtang National Park.

The first part of the trek begins at Trisuli Bazar and follows the Trishuli River flowing below: Betrawati, Ramche, Dhunche, until Thulo Syabru.
At Thulo Syabru, the main trail enters the Langtang Valley and runs east along the Langtang Khola River: Ghora Tabela Lodge, Lama Lodge, Ghora Tabela, Langtang Village, Kyanjin Gompa (alt. 3 000 m).

Another option at Thulo Syabru is to follow the trail in the south-east direction and reach the magnificent Gosainkunda lake, which waters are considered holy by Shiva worshippers.
The 2015 earthquake has caused major damages in the Langtang valley: several hundred people were killed, 90% of the district's houses were damaged and the roadways were partially blocked making access difficult for the rescue operations.
