Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu Trek

Langtang Gosainkund Helambu trek is an amazing adventure combining spectacular views of the Himalayas, with a number of interesting cultural experiences and quite geographically diverse landscapes.

This trek will give your legs a chance to warm up at the easier elevations and on the more moderate trails of the Langtang, before reaching the harder trails of the Gosiakund and time to become acclimatised to the higher elevations. In the spring your efforts will be rewarded, not only with some spectacular mountain views, but also with the rhododendron forests in full bloom and carpets of alpine wildflowers.

After the exhilaration of crossing a classic Himalayan high pass, you will be rewarded by the sacred Gosiankund lakes which are considered holy by both Hindus and Buddhists alike. Many Hindus make the pilgrimage to bathe in the lakes during the August full moon festival of Janai Purnima.

The trek then takes you onto the beautiful, calm valley of the Helambu. The terrain is classic Himalayan foothills. Despite its proximity to Kathmandu, the trails remain blissfully quiet as you wind your way through cultivated terraces, Sherpa villages and mountain viewpoints. A real taste of rural Nepal, before heading back to the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu.

Stunning mountain scenery, high passes, hot springs, abundant wildlife, sacred lakes - the Langtang, Gosainkunda & Helambu circuit trek truly has a little bit of everything and will delight both newcomer and the most seasoned trekker alike!
