After Chilime, we start to ascend first by crossing a small hanging bridge and continue until we reach our campsite. In route, we have excellent views of the Langtang Range and Ganesh Himal. Tatopani also renown as place of natural hot water dam, where one can cleanse in the natural hot springs. Locals believe that the waters have a healing quality that eases away your aches and pains.

Nagthali Danda (3300m), the highest pass of the area, lies in a high open grassland and offers panoramic views of snow covered Langtang Lirung, Kerung, Ganesh Himal and Sanjen Ranges. We descend down to Thuman, a heavily Tibetan influenced Tamang village. If we are lucky, we might come across large troops of Nepal Gray Langur Monkeys. The ancient monasteries and houses adorned with rich wood engravings here are an unforgettable experience. This trek will take 5 hours.
We begin with an easy flat trails which descends to Timure en route to the old trade route to Tibet. After lunch and making camp at Timure we head towards Rasuwa Gadhi, an historical reminder of the Nepal-Tibet relations that has existed for many centuries. A suspension bridge here links Nepal and Tibet. We are not permitted to camp at Rasuwa Gadhi, as it lies on the border and security is extremely tight.
Passing through rhododendron forests and meadows we head towards Briddim, another Tibetan influenced Tamang village located in the bosom of the Langtang Himal. Around 43 houses are spread in Z shape. Most of the houses are made up of stone and have roofs of split shake. Here we may meet other trekkers on the Langtang trail.
After the sunshine we are heading to our next destination called Thulo Syabru. Thulo Syabru from east is a small valley, it is a steep climb through forests of oak, fir, and rhododendron to the top of a ridge.

When we cross the Gosanikund pass the first lake named Saraswoti Kund, second is Parvati Kund, third is Bhairab Kund and fourth is Gosain Kund, which is bigger than others. After then we back to Sing Gompa.
