Tamang Heritage Langtang Gosainkunda pass Trek

Tamang Heritage Langtang Gosainkund Pass trek : majestic mountains, glaciers, forests, wildlife, an abundance of flowers, holy lakes, the excitement of crossing a Himalayan high pass, traditional cultures, outstanding views – what more could any trekker ask for!

Your journey starts with the Tamang Heritage trail, a great circuit trek situated between the Langtang and the Ganesh Himal. Enjoy a warm welcome from the local Tamang people and experience a gentle start to the trek through the peaceful, picturesque villages and terraced valleys. Then we will cross over into the Langtang valley and trek through forests of pine, bamboo and rhododendron, keeping an eye open for rare wildlife such as the red panda and multiple species of colourful birds. After the vegetation gives way to alpine meadows, in the spring, you'll be treated to the best wildflower display Nepal has to offer and year round, to up close, breathtaking mountain views.

After exploring the area around Kyanjin Gompa and allowing time for acclimatisation, our journey takes us to the stunning, sacred lakes of Gosainkund. The lakes are considered holy by both Hindus and Buddhists alike and many Hindus make the pilgrimage to bathe in the lakes during the August full moon festival of Janai Purnima.

We will then head over the Laurebinayak pass before continuing down through steep terraced countryside, to finish up at Sundarijal just north of Kathmandu. This area is home to Tamang, Newari and Chhetri people and is a wonderful example of Nepal's harmonious ethnic diversity. What a way to finish!
