Langtang 1991

Ray's first trip to Nepal in October 1991 was to trek in the Langtang and Helambu areas north of Kathmandu. The group explored Kathmandu before setting out by bus to the trailhead at Dhunche. The trek route through the Langtang Valley, past the base of Langtang Lirung, back up to the sacred lake Gosainkund and through the Laurebinayak pass, the high point of the trek at 15,100 ft (4,602 m). The return to Kathmandu was via a ridge-walk through the Helambu region.
