Overview

The Langtang Gosainkunda Trek takes you travelling through the Langtang Valley, also known as the Valley of Glaciers. This valley encompasses the rich flora of Langtang National Park, the unique culture of the ethnic Tamang community and panoramic views of mountains such as Langtang Ri, Langsisa and Ganjala Peak.

However it is not just impressive peaks that you can expect to see on this trek. Trekking in this region will also take you through alpine meadows, past pristine lakes and over colossal peaks – allowing you to experience varying vegetation, virgin forests and huge glaciers. Combined with the warm welcome you will receive from the local people, it is undeniably a must for anyone wishing to experience trekking in Nepal.

This 16-day Langtang Gosainkunda Trek combines the paths of the Langtang Valley trek and Gosainkunda Lake trek and provides an exciting and extensive itinerary that starts in Kathmandu. From the capital you will drive to the trailhead of Sybrubensi and then begin trekking towards the famous Lama Hotel –starting your journey walking through the bamboo forests and terraced fields along the Upper Trishuli River.

Soon you will reach the wonderful Ghodatabela village, surrounded by a forest filled with pine and hemlocks, before enjoying a spectacular walk through the rhododendron forests that lead you towards the spiritual Langtang village. Once at Kyanjin Gompa, you will begin your hike to the Kyanjin Ria as well as enjoying a scenic climb to Chorko-Ri. Then you will trek back to The Lama Hotel and head on to Thulo Syabru. Here you will enjoy the amazing experience of Tibetan Buddhist culture and life, complete with receiving blessings from ancient Buddhist shrines such as Langtang Gompa and Kang Jing Gompa.

Traveling through Sing Gompa, you will reach the holy Gosainkunda Lake, across the alluring Lauribina Pass. This turquoise lake, safely surrounded by rocky hills, is a sacred site for Hindu pilgrims, who visit the lake to wash away their sins every year in the month of August. Leaving here, you will pass through a forest of firs before reaching Dhunche and finally driving back to Kathmandu, where you will end your adventure. To enjoy this trek to its fullest, we recommend that you join us between March and May, or between September and December.

Happy Trek

Thanks to Puru for taking this wonderful trek with me and my friends. We were a group of 8 friends doing this trek. Two of my friends did years back the Everest Base Camp with Puru, so we specifically ask for him to guide this trek and luckily he said yes. It is obvious he knows this region as his own pocket, therefor it was enjoyable to hear him share his knowledge, always telling stories with love and passion for this region of Nepal and always making sure everybody was safe and happy.

It is true when My Everest Trip say they make their treks trouble free. The length of the daily walk, the accommodation and the meals was very well organized. Puru did a splendid job to give us happy days.

I prefer to do longer treks, so this extended Langtang Valley trek was a good choice for us with a good mixture of nature and culture. Visiting the Himalayas is a memory for life and combined with the joyful company of Puru  we could not ask for more.

For all adventure seekers; My Everest Trip is the place to go.

Most incredible experience imaginable!

I went on a week long trek in the LangTang region of Nepal with Ratna as my trekking guide. Throughout the week Ratna was kind, with a fab sense of humour, encouraging when I was finding the walking hard, and always knew what he was doing, with a solution for every hurdle. By the end of the week we were great friends! Being able to be so confident in our guide meant that we could all relax and enjoy the trek, never having to worry about anything, and having a huge amount of fun along the way. With Ratna’s support we reached our final peak despite my fear of being unable to make it that far, and to this day it is one of my proudest achievements. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat, and would recommend it to all!
