Overview

Langtang Gosaikunda trek combines the remote and spectacular hidden valleys of Langtang with the holy lake of Gosainkunda at an altitude of 4,600m. Trek through the lush green rich vegetation of Langtang National park to the end of the valley to enjoy the scenic mountains views as high as Langtang Lirung 7,345m. Following the Trisuli River north out of Kathmandu, we travel through Trisuli Bazaar and Dhunche to Syabrubensi, a Sherpa village located at the very edge of Langtang National Park. We then trek east into the Langtang valley, crossing the river several times as we travel up along a gorge-like, lower section of the valley. Langtang area is primarily inhabited by Tamang ethnic tribe. The culture, language and their customs are similar to the Tibetans. The views of snowy mountain peaks, like the Langtang Lirung (7,345m.), Gangchenpo (5,846m.), Dorje Lakpa (6,966m.) are breathtaking.

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 Gosaikunda is located. Crossing the Laurebina Pass, we continue south, leaving the Langtang region behind us as we travel through the Helambu valley to Gul Bhanjyang and return back to Kathmandu.

Itinerary

Expand All
Welcome to Kathmandu!

Flying into Kathmandu, you'll have views over the valley, the Himalaya, and the terraced fields below. After completing customs, a representative will be waiting to greet you outside the airport and to guide you through the initial culture shock of Kathmandu’s narrow, winding streets to your hotel.

Drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (4,790 ft / 1,460 m)

After an early breakfast in Kathmandu, you'll begin a 7-8-hour road trip to Syabrubesi. The drive climbs high over ridges as it leaves the Kathmandu Valley, and provides impressive snow-capped views of the Annapurna Himalayas to the west, as well as Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and the minor peaks of the Langtang mountain region ahead. Keep your camera close as you'll also encounter rivers, terraced hillsides, and rustic villages as you head into this mountainous region.

You'll drive through the bustling town of Trisuli before climbing up towards Dunche. From Dunche, you'll head downhill for an hour to get to Syabrubesi for the night.

Driving time: 7-8 hours
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight: Syabrubesi

Trek from Syabru Besi to Lama Hotel (8,103 feet / 2,470 m)

After breakfast in Syabru Besi, you'll begin today’s trek that crosses over the Bhote Kosi River—meaning ‘Tibet River’—which flows from nearby Tibet.

You'll follow the stone-paved main street out of town over Langtang Khola. After crossing the suspension bridge, the trail gradually ascends up to ‘Bamboo’ passing a famous old landslide. The trail continues through several sub-tropical forests and then joins the trail from Syabru Besi, before climbing through uninhabited oak and rhododendron forests. Keep an eye out for langur monkeys in the trees, as well as an abundance of wildlife such as yellow-throated martens, wild boars, and red pandas.

The trail to Lama Hotel becomes steep in places but then ascends gently and finally levels off before you reach your overnight stay.

Trekking time: 5-6 hours (7 miles / 11.3 km)
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight: Lama Hotel

Trek from Lama Hotel to Mundu (11,646 feet / 3550 m)

After breakfast at the Lama Hotel, you'll continue climbing through the forest with occasional glimpses of Langtang Lirung between the trees. When you reach Ghora Tabela, the trail emerges from the forest and you'll see snow-capped mountains on either side of the valley. At one time, there was a Tibetan resettlement project here, but now it is a Nepal Army post with no permanent inhabitants.

The trail continues to climb gently as the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during summer. You'll probably get a glimpse of your first yak if you haven’t seen one already.

Trek from Mundu to Kyangjin Gompa (12,467 feet / 3800 m)

After breakfast in Mundu, the trail climbs gradually through yak pastures. Notice how the valley extends even further than before allowing for extensive views. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyangjin. This village has a small Tibetan monastery and a government-operated cheese factory—a good place to stock up for lunch and afternoon snacks.

Since you'll likely arrive at your overnight location by lunchtime, you'll have plenty of free time to take it easy in the afternoon. Relax at the village bakery and cafe, or explore the area by foot. If you are feeling energetic, head up the valley towards Langshisha Kharka to see some of the amazing views.

Trekking time: 3-4 hours (3.5 miles / 5.7 km)
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight: Kyangjin Gompa

Trek from Kyangjin Gompa to Lama Hotel (8,103 feet / 2,470 m)

After breakfast in Kyangjin Gompa, you'll hit the trail and retrace the route you took through the valley, following the Langtang Khola River to the village of Mundu and eventually Ghora Tabela. Though the trail is flat in certain places, the way down will certainly be faster than your ascent.

You'll stop for lunch en route and then continue heading downhill until you get to Lama Hotel. This ancient area and is one of the oldest undisturbed valleys in Nepal. Check out unique flora and fauna, including lush green forests, as well as snow-capped views of the Langtang mountain peaks. Due to the earthquake, there are fewer tourists here so you can expect uncrowded trails. Enjoy the easy downhill terrain and take in the scenery.

For those with limited time, an alternative option is to take a helicopter ride from Kyangjin to Kathmandu.

Trekking time: 5-6 hours (9 miles / 14.5 km)
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

We can also simply relax in the sun savoring the beauty of the stately Himalayan Mountains that surround us.

Trek Thulo Syabru to Sing Gompa [3254m]

The trail to Sing Gompa goes up through forests of oak, firs and rhododendrons to gain a ridge, then cuts across the ridge top, staying fairly level in forests as it crosses the head of a valley. We take the uphill trail at each junction and cross another forested ridge. The trail continues across the head of a second valley, and then reaches a final ridge at 3650m. Sing Gompa is about 100m along the trail to the left. Sing Gompa is the main attraction at Chandan Bari, which also home to a number of hotels and a small cheese factory. A great place to hang around and spend the night.

Overnight: Sing Gompa

Trek from Sing Gompa to Gosainkunda [4336m]

From Sing Gompa we climb a ridge to meet up with the main Gosainkunda trail. The trail climbs steeply up the ridge and at several points on top of the ridge itself. There is rich, moist mountain forests on the northern slopes and dry scrub vegetation on the south. As the trail ascends, there are fantastic views across Langtang valley to Langtang Lirung. To the west there are compelling views of Himalchuli, Ganesh Himal and Manaslu. Eventually the trail descends from the ridge to the first of three lakes, Saraswati Kund. The second lake in the chain is named Bhairab Kund, and the third, Gosainkunda. This lake is largely sacred and a place of pilgrimage in the summer. The Gosainkunda (Holy Shiva's lake) is a high altitude lake. According to the Hindu mythology, Shiva himself created this high altitude lake.

Hiya, I'm really glad I've found this information. Today bloggers publish just about gossips and web and this is really frustrating. A good site with interesting content, this is what I need. Thanks for keeping this site, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Cant find it. http://www.tlovertonet.com/

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

Just about all of the things you assert happens to be supprisingly appropriate and it makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light previously. This article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this subject matter goes. However there is just one point I am not really too comfortable with so while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual central theme of the point, allow me see what the rest of your subscribers have to say.Very well done. http://www.tlovertonet.com/

I would like to thnkx for the efforts you have put in writing this blog. I am hoping the same high-grade blog post from you in the upcoming as well. In fact your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my own blog now. Really the blogging is spreading its wings quickly. Your write up is a good example of it.
