Kyangjin (4350m/14,271ft)

A three day trek up the Langtang Valley which lies northwest of Kathmandu, overshadowed by Langtang Lirung. The valley was said to have been discovered by a lama searching for a strayed yak, ‘lang’ meaning yak, and ‘tang’ a version of the word ‘to follow’.

The trek starts at Syabru Bensi to Kyangjin Village from where you can climb to the twin peaks of Kyangjin (4350m/14,271ft) and Kyimoshung (4620m/15,157ft), which are a must for even the shortest of visits to Kyangjin Village and provide excellent views of Langtang Lirung (7324m/24,030ft).

Although close to Kathmandu, the Langtang Valley is not as visited by trekkers when compared to the Annapurna region, and yet the scenery is really magnificent.

Thanks to LTCM for this description.
