Hello

In a few weeks I leave for Nepal's first track. The Center area. I write the summary data for the route planned.
This is based on an existing route and expanded it is known and made a circular route. It is the first track of 3 I plan to do in Nepal. The other two I plan to begin in late September in about nine months. If you want write also the details about these tracks I had planned that they are much more massive than the original route.

So start

General description:
Departure from Katmandu, Nepal's capital, when the general direction is North towards the border with Tibet and angetang Valley. There are several mountain passes through when the zone known because the area is Gosainkunda. 4380 feet in height, these lakes and very special. From direction is North-North-East, the border with Tibet and langetang range of the Himalayas.
Between the peaks in the area:
Langtang Lirung-7234m
Shishapangma-8013m (few km into Tibet)
Langtang-II 6581m
And of course other lower peaks (5500 and fluff like that.)

After arrival to the area and angetang to 4984m and KYANGING TSERKO RI-RI-4783m for acclimatization. Moving South through the mountains LA GANJA. Relatively difficult passage and very steep, about three days traveling with gear to get it. The pass is at an altitude of 5160 feet and requires equipment basic snow and ice like crampons and ice axe and above all very good walking shoes. After the transition actually reach the HELAMBU Valley and then continues South and then southwest to the Kathmandu back.

Description of the area:

Langtang Helambu region

This region is in third place in terms of popularity with visitors. The gentle hills of the capital, just north of the Helambu are the ideal playground for travelers that are new to or prefer short treks trekking-otherwise. This is home of the Tamang and Helambu sherpas. The flags and numerous monasteries, list the walls.40 are are proof of the sherpas ' strong roots in the Buddhist religion '. From March to June the rhododendron are in full bloom and the trekker hopes will encounter a designed landscape near the passes to the Langtang. While the Helambu may be visited practically anytime outside of the monsoon Villa centrally located, winter season does make it difficult to cross La and La Ganja Laurebina as they are often snowed in from December to February. Only La Ganja attempt if you are well acclimatized and have sufficient experience and mountaineering equipment program. Since 1974, the Langtang Valley has been a national park. This dry mountain valley with its Yak herds and Bhotia (Tibetan) offers stunning mountain inhabitants, jungles, mountain scenery and plenty of game. The Langtang National Park abundant opportunity to observe nature provides information in national climatic zones field, from tropical to alpine. Semi-wild yaks graze in mountain goats and Tibetan Kyangjin live on the enormous moraines above. This is also the home of the snow leopard. But don ' t header field to see this shy and elusive animal. The Langtang National Park is easily accessible from Kathmandu and is therefore well suited for shorter excursions.

Technical details:

Estimated distance: 254 km.
(Be with GPS and wish to give a more accurate index even though it seems very likely to choose various ways a bit along the way so you get back if you wish later detail)

Highest point: 5160m LA GANJA

Lowest point: SUNDARAJIL 1329m.

Altitude changes (ELEVATION CHANGE): 17344

Days: 23.

Geography: the mountain trails in some paths for people and commerce. Villages, the snow-covered mountains and tall forests.

Lodging: along the route except for a section of GANJA LA backwater village guesthouses. You can stay in a tent without any problem. Three days of the MARENA mountains in yurt, Tharp)

Important equipment: crampons, ice axe, mountain walking shoes, walking sticks, balls against altitude sickness, in Paris and press temperature to minus 20 Celsius.

Food: every day walk villages along the way, so no need for carrying food. Except of course for three days of GANJA LA pass.

Water: purified water all the way without having to carry any amounts. Unnecessary water-mainly because the villagers sell you water you can fill rivers. (Mineral water is very expensive and not available)

Recommended times: except for the mountain pass can travel almost all year round. You have to remember that this period of mmai to September monsoons. And in January-end of December is very dry.
(You can walk there in January and February but should value with appropriate equipment)

Map a little more Snowflake:

And dude from angetang area:



I think it's not a bad summary of things. If anybody cares so add more and of course give my impressions when I get back. I leave in a month and come back in mid-March. (Of this semester ...) Of course I have my post pictures if you want.

So far,

Hey Ma,


It is possible to take porters, but since we're here in the Forum focused light and minimal so I don't see the need to take. My equipment everything including all weighs just 9 pounds without water and food. And that's when I take a pair of MOUNTAINEERING BOOTS in addition to my regular walking shoes that are easily and fit no problem for most of the route. After I return I can give an opinion on what equipment should and should But now that matters. And another change and drop weight.


Can I publish my equipment list.


If you are stretching in tendon so I think it doesn't matter what you find, whether it is a single strand or whether in Nepal passim. You stop and try to get out of the situation. Unlike Earth, where it is possible to contact the rescue forces about everywhere in Nepal I walk with a friend I met on Israel. So we're going to be there for each other. Non-standard places I think we shouldn't hang out alone, especially the type of effort.


UM ... What else to tell

Sounds very interesting. I'm waiting for prescriptions after the trip (assuming that there are not many Internet access points during the trail), and your photos.

You also have a KML file with GPA, you can see only?

In the first part. About halfway there actually. Try to update.
About KML file. Then there are the coordinates and area, but not really the whole track. It is possible to build the track completely. If you want to do this weekend. It won't take long.

So for now:

Hi,

Last update for a while. Probably won ' t have internet access for weeks.

The bag is loaded and the trek looks pretty massive.

Don't have time to upload pics but I'll do it when we get back.

The Himalayas are amazing and you won ' t believe the low our best prices here.

I think the are a lot of new travel opportunities for ultra long trails here.

But I'll tell about this when I get back.

Next time went.

How/where you screech and the use of crampons and ice axe?

What consideration to buy as opposed to hiring? Are you planning another winter courses in the future?

Have fun!

Hi everyone,

After a week I finnaly got to a place with internet connection.

(And running water. )

Don't have much time now cause we are heading to Kathmandu to resupply and especially to take care of my ankles which are badly wounded. But in 3 days time we are getting back on the trail "and" going to the Ganja la!!

I will write a full report I guess tomorrow "with picture and I have a lot to tell.

The himalayas are amazing!!!!!

But forget every trail you saw in the US or Europe or Austraila. These are a real survival trails. Really really rough and difficult unbelivebly.

'Re, Not much snow this year so the Ganja la will be a bit easier to pass. I did the Laurubina Pass yesterday with busted ankles but with my backpack on with some many other things.

That's it for now, I'll write Tomorrow "the first week of my trek.

And Yes I am planning more treks here and when I get back I'll give you all my tips and if anyone wants to join then great.

C ya!

Eyal
