Langtang Gosainkunda Trek

Introduction

Langtang Gosainkunda Trek | Outdoor Himalayan Treks, Nepal

Langtang Gosainkunda Trek begins from Kathmandu. In this journey to Langtang Valley and Gosainkunda , we  take a drive to Trishuli Bazar and from there to Dhunche, the only townlike place in the entire Langtang area and the Rasuwa district. From Dhunche we descend to Syabrubesi, a village inhabited by Sherpas very close to Langtang National Park. We head eastward, crossing Trishuli River several times and enter the valley of Langtang. Oak and rhododendron forests, naturally at their best during spring, are encountered and so is a glacial moraine on our way to Langtang village where Tamang people have settled for centuries.

In Langtang Gosaikunda Trek, a major attraction is Kyanjin Gompa village renowned for yak cheese. We continue our journey through Nubamatang, a small village nestled in a hidden valley and view several glaciers marking the gateway to Tibet. We then backtrack through Thulo Syabru and Sing Gompa and then to the high plateau where the sacred Gosainkunda Lake is situated. You will feel like in heaven because of the outstanding landscape and the pristine atmosphere of the place.

From Gosainkunda our journey takes us through Laurebina, Thare Pati, Kutumsang, Chisopani and finally to Kathmandu, thus completing the Langtang trek.
