Overview

The Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu Trek is a unique trek that extends the popular Langtang Gosainkunda Trek, with the spectacular Helambu Trek – taking our trekkers on the perfect adventure to experience both mountains and culture, all at low altitude.

The trek begins on the same path as the Langtang Valley Trek, but soon leads you to the stunning Tamang highlands and villages in the Helambu region, the renowned region of the Sherpa’s. Among the Sherpa towns along your route you will visit the beautiful TarkeGhyang: a place that resembles the high-altitude villages of Mustang, Dolpo, and even Ladakh, without the difficulty or altitude risk and compromise.

Located in the heart of the TarkeGhyang village is a Buddhist monastery – the start of a spiritual journey that further takes you on a walk along the mountain foothills to experience the holy lakes of Gosainkund. Here you can soak in the atmosphere and experience the blissfully quiet atmosphere of the Himalayas.

Along the way you will see of the Worlds most impressive mountain peaks, as you cross over rivers, through forests and remote villages, under the shadow of Everest giants, and alongside meadows and local people who you will encounter along the way.

We operate the Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu Trek in both groups and private tours, and as with all of our treks, offer a fully customisable itinerary, with personalised travel and accommodation plans available upon request. So if you want to anymore about the itinerary options, trek cost, trek difficulty, or anything else at all, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a friendly member of our team.
