The highly underrated Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is a complete exploration of the Langtang region. The exciting excursion takes trekkers up through the dense jungles (teeming with rare wildlife!) after weaving through villages and terraced agricultural fields. Following the Langtang Valley Trek trail, become enclosed by mountains at Kyanjin Gompa. Even from here, the best is yet to come. Gosaikunda Lake takes you by surprise as you climb up to this mesmerizing, sacred body of water. The trail of course lies in the Langtang region, making it one of the most accessible from Kathmandu.

The Langtang Gosaikunda Trek has everything you could ask for in a Himalayan trek. From charming tea houses to stunning mountainside monasteries, you will enjoy learning about life in the mountains. From lively, breathing forests to the high Lauribina La Pass, the landscape is always changing. There is never a dull moment on the Langtang Gosaikunda Trek.

One amazing thing about Gosaikunda Lakeis its spiritual significance. It is sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists. For Hindus, it is a pilgrimage destination during Janai Purnima festival, which takes place during the August full moon. During this time, hundreds of pilgrims from all parts of India and Nepal come to the lake for the festivities. During this time, Hindus take part in a ritualistic removal of the sacred Janai thread from their bodies and replace with a new one while bathing in the pristine water. If you would like to witness or take part in this special festival, let us know and we will arrange for that!

The trek begins with a 7-8 hour drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. Follow the trail up the Langtang River in admiration of the thriving landscape. Keep your eye out for some of the many animals found in the area, including the Red Panda. Also, appreciate the genuine hospitality from the Tamang people, natives of the area and devotees of Tibetan Buddhism. Trekkers find them welcoming and very kind.

Arrive in high alpine environment of Kyanjin Gompa, an incredible mountain viewpoint (as well as monastery!). Take a day hike the following day to Tsergo RI (4984 meters), Kyanjin RI (4773 meters), or Langshisha Kharka. Then, head towards the mystical Gosaikunda Lake (4380 meters). Sit in silence on the shore of the lake and feel the energy that it gives. The final push of the Langtang Gosaikunda Trek arrives in the last few days. From Gosaikunda, hike to Gopte via the Laurebina La Pass (4610 meters), the highest point of the trek. Enjoy amazing views of the Gosaikunda and the beautiful scenery beyond it. Come participate in this once-in-a-lifetime journey!

You can take Langtang Valley Trekall throughout the year. The best times to make the trip, though, are during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons.

Ltd. handles the trek with complete management. If you have any questions about the trek, do ask!
