The Langtang Gosainkund trek combines the diversity of the remote and spectacular Langtang Valley, with the holy lakes of the Gosainkund which are considered holy by both Hindus and Buddhists alike.

The beginning of the trail is easier and will give your legs time to warm up before you reach the harder trails to the Gosainkunda area. Along the way you will be rewarded with an abundance of wildlife, magnificent waterfalls, spectacular mountain views, rhododendron and bamboo forests, in spring the rhododendrons will be in full bloom and carpets of wildflowers will line the trail. This spectacular trek will not only expose you to the beauty of the Langtang region but will also give you the chance to experience the Tamrang culture of the region.
