Trip Overview

Langtang Gosainkunda Trek

Langtang Gosainkunda Trek takes you to the remote and spectacular valley of Langtang as well as holy high mountain lake of Gosainkunda at an altitude of 4600m. This trek offers opportunity to explore the Himalayan passes, magnificent views of Mt.Langtang Lirung, pristine valley, diverse wildlife, majestic waterfalls and diverse ethno-culture. Both Hindus and Buddhists make the pilgrimage to bathe in Gosaikunda during festival of Janai Purnima.

Langtang Gosaikunda begins after you board a bus from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi, starting point of trek, via Trishuli Bazaar. Syabrubesi is a Sherpa village located at the edge of the Langtang National Park. We cross Trishuli river many times and ascend through forest of pines, rhododendron and even cross glacial moraine on our way to the Tamang village of Langtang. We go uphill towards Kyangjing Gompa where we can observe the spiritual life of Buddhist monks in monastery. If we can trek to Cherko Ri we can enjoy the breathtaking view of mountain all around including Langtang Lirung, Gangchenpo and others. We can also visit local cheese factory. Langtang region also offers a wide variety of wildlife including the rare elusive red panda. We retrace back to Lama hotel. Now we take a new trail up and down the forest to Thulo Syabru and then to Sing Gompa where we can test fresh cheese from local cheese factory. We can visit some old monasteries. After a steep walk with dramatic view of valley and mountain, passing high pasture of Laurebina we reach the holy lakes of Gosaikunda. There are 108 lakes in Gosaikunda Basin. After a day exploring Gosaikunda we descend to Sing Gompa, down all the way to Dhunche and head back to Kathmandu.

Langtang Gosaikunda Trekking is one of the best combination of natural beauty and cultural riches that is praised by both experienced and beginner trekkers. The best season is spring season(March to May).
