Langtang Valley and Gosainkunda Lake trekking

Langtang Valley and Gosainkunda Trek offer a fantastic opportunity for trekkers to experience the stunning beauty of nature and immerse themselves in the local culture, all within a convenient distance from Kathmandu.

The trek takes you through Langtang National Park, where you can witness the incredible biodiversity of subtropical and alpine landscapes. The park covers a vast area of 1,700 square kilometres, with over 25% of lush forests. This region is home to renowned Himalayan ranges like Langtang and Langtang Lirung, adding to the awe-inspiring scenery.
The Langtang Gosainkunda Trek perfectly blends natural wonders and cultural exploration. You’ll have the chance to visit traditional Tamang villages in the Langtang Valley and ultimately reach the sacred Gosainkunda Lake. Along the way, you’ll be captivated by the majestic snow-capped peaks of the Langtang, Jugal, and Ganesh Himal ranges. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced hiker, this trek caters to all levels of expertise.

The journey commences with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubensi, where the trek officially begins. Following the trails alongside the Langtang River, you’ll traverse through charming Tamang hamlets and reach Langtang village, nestled at the base of Langtang Lirung (7,227m). Continuing onwards, you’ll arrive at Kyangjin Gompa, which houses a notable cheese production centre established by the Swiss Development Corporation in the 1950s. During the extra day allocated at Kyangjin Gompa, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the upper valley and soak in its beauty.

The return journey retraces your steps back to Bamboo, then proceeds towards Gosainkunda Lake via Thulo Syabru, Shing Gompa, and Lauribina. Gosainkunda holds immense religious significance for both Hindus and Buddhists, with locals believing in the region’s 108 lakes and ponds of varying sizes.

The Langtang Valley and Gosainkunda Trek promise a remarkable adventure, allowing you to witness the wonders of nature, delve into the local culture, and create lasting memories amidst the breathtaking Himalayan landscapes.
