Langtang Gosainkunda trek offers the a variety of landscapes from the beautiful mountain and glacier scenery of the spectacular Langtang Valley, to high mountain lakes at at Gosainkund and breathtaking views over Tibet from the high pass at Laurebena. The majority of the trek is within Langtang National Park renowned for its spectacular glaciers and mountain lakes. Although the trek is easily accessible from Kathmandu it remains relatively unspoiled and trekkers will experience a range of ethnic groups and their cultures.
The trek starts at Syabrubesi, a Sherpa village on the edge of the national park and follows the Langtang Khola through the Tamang village of Langtang on to Kyangin Gompa. We then return and head south east, climbing to a high plateau and the lakes at Gosainkund. These lakes are a sacred pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists as well as Shamans, the traditional healers. From here the trek heads higher to the Laurebina Pass before descending through the Hallambu Valley to Sundarijal and the end of the trek.
Overnight teahouse stays in villages along the way allow the opportunity to meet the local people and explore their traditional way of life, enjoy their hospitality and sample traditional Nepali food. The Langtang Gosainkunda trek is an amazing combination of natural beauty and cultural riches.
The trek starts and finishes in Kathmandu. To keep cost as low as possible, we offer the flexibility for you to arrange your own accommodation in Kathmandu however we are happy to arrange this for you if you wish.
