The trip to Syafrubeshi from Kathmandu is a long exciting journey that’s filled with explicit sceneries, mountain views, glimpse into the vast contrasting landscapes of Nepal and rough roads as well.
The Kathmandu Syabrubesiroad is the gateway to all the major trekking routes in the Langtang region such as Langtang Valley Trekking, Langtang-Gosainkunda Trekking, Tamang Heritage Trekking, Ice Lake Trekking, and Yala Peak Climbing. The road trip also offers tourists spectacular views of the Langtang Range. On a clear day, travelers can expect stunning views of Ganesh Himal, Langtang Lirung, Naya Kanga, Langtang Ri, Dorje Lakpa and other Himalayan giants.
The scenic drive takes around eight to nine hours. The road from Kathmandu to TrishuliBazzar is comfortable but after that, the road becomes bumpier and bumpier as you near Syafrubesi. The region was severely hit by the quake but currently, reconstruction is going on and has been opened to tourists.
The ride is long and at times can be not so comfy, so do bring some comfortable clothes, shoes, snacks and plenty of water. Although at times the road may not be pleasant the whole journey makes up for it as you will witness the different cultures and landscapes Nepal has to offer.
