Langtang Gosainkunda Lake Trekking combines the trek to the remote and spectacular valley of Langtang with the trek to the high mountain lakes at Gosainkunda. We will first visit the beautiful Langtang National Park, which was established in 1976 AD, and then trek to the end of the valley to view the wonderful mountains from places like Kyanjin and Tserko Ri, which are located at the edge of the Nepal-Tibet border.
This Langtang Gosainkunda Lake Trekking starts by following the Trisuli River north out of Kathmandu. We travel through Trisuli Bazar and Dhunche to Syabrubesi, a Sherpa village located at the very edge of the Langtang National Park. We then swing east into the Langtang valley, crossing the river several times as we travel up along a gorge-like, lower section of the valley. We pass through oak and rhododendron forests and even cross glacial moraine on our way to the Tamang village of Langtang.
A little further up the valley is Kyangin Gompa, where we stop overnight and sample the local yak cheese. We pass through Nubamatang, nestled in a hidden valley, on our way up to view the glaciers, which mark the gateway into Tibet. Backtracking, we travel through Syabru and Sing Gompa to a high plateau, where the sacred lake Gosainkunda is located. Crossing the Laurebina Pass (4610m), we continue south, leaving the Langtang region behind us as we travel through the Helambu valley to Gul Bhanjyang.
