Langtang Trek Part 12: Most tourists who climb the almost 5,000-meter Tserko Ri Hill return to Kyanjin Gompa on the same (shortest route). A far more interesting alternative is to go back along the mountain plains of Yala Kharka and then traverse high above the valley of the Langtang Khola river and make a nice sightseeing trip.

Beautiful descent from Tserko Ri

The road from Tserko Ri descends comfortably through the meadows to the southeast with absolutely amazing views. You will almost certainly go this way alone, because, surprisingly, everyone returns the same way. If you plan to go to the higher Yala Peak, you will also go this way and at the end of this plain you will cross only a small valley and it will climb Yala Kharka in the direction of the altitude camp.

Border ridge with Tibet

The peaks in the north form the border with Tibet and are over 6,500 meters above sea level. On a smaller, indistinct vertical ridge is also Yala Peak, a trekking climbing peak

Tserko Ri from the other side

Tserko Ri looks quite monumental from the Langtang valley, from here it's just an indistinct grassy hill and at the same time almost five thousand

View of the Langtang Khola valley

After half an hour of a pleasant descent, you will come to the edge of a mountain meadow and see a river some 800 meters below you – a proper parachute.

Traverse the slope

The path from the edge falls quite steeply about 200 meters, then it starts to traverse the slope. Directly in front of you is the distinctive mountain Naya Kanga (5,846 m above sea level) and below it you can basically see the whole way to the saddle Ganja La

Traverse

Most of the traverse parts of this tour are fine, you would not want to slip down somewhere

Descent to the herdsmen

Almost all the way you see about 150 meters below the second alternative path. You will join it after running down this cemetery

View from pastoral fences

After a while, a distant view of the Langtang Valley opens up and the destination – Kyanjin Gompa – can be seen. Right in front of you is an interesting set of pastoral dwellings and fences

The local pastures are made for yaks, which are not a problem to come across in several places on this tour

Pod Tserko Ri

The road turns and the top of Tserko Ri is visible again. We are almost 800 meters below him

Before the crossroads

After about two and a half hours of descent, a view of the „normal“ ascent path and the classic panorama with the Langtang Lirung opens up to us.

Finally we come to the road signpost and from there we will go to Kyanjin Gompa along the same road we went in the morning
