Our Langtang Gosainkunda Trek is 14-day long moderately strenuous trekking package which brings us through the pristine natural marvels into the very core of Langtang Valley to the precious Glacier Lake of Gosainkunda. Langtang Gosainkunda Trek pursues the remote and hidden route which surpasses through the sparsely populated area. 

Our Langtang Gosainkunda Trek begins from the exquisite hill town of Syabrubesi and moves forth through the Langtang Valley, through vibrant rhododendron and conifer woods in Langtang National Park and through alpine pasture land, high passes, glaciers and moraines.  Finally, we make it to the Gosainkunda Lake which is a highlight of our trek. The trek perseveres by way of Lauribinayak Pass all the way to Sundarijal, marking the end of Langtang Valley/Gosaikunda/Helambu Trek.

A ceremony is held in Gosainkunda Lake in every full moon of Bhadra (coincides with the English month of August) during which the religious faith towards the Lake hypnotizes Shamans, Buddhist and Hindu to befall this Lake.  Pilgrims come from all over Nepal and India to take part in this ritual celebration.  Langtang Gosaikunda Trek has bounty of things to offer which takes you through the magical experience of having 360 degree views of Himalayan peaks, visiting the region where 108 lakes dwell including the most revered Gosainkunda Lake where Lord Shiva himself is deemed to reside. The course progresses further through Tamang and Sherpa Villages. Thus Langtang Gosainkunda Trek can be taken as an amalgamation of both natural and cultural fascinations.

    “Excellent trek, with amazing landscape.  The only point which I would change would be to keep an open schedule for the way up. Many people felt high altitude sickness symptoms, so it would be positive to break up the way up in more one-two days, to allow for proper acclimatisation. To have a fixed trek schedule is not the best to deal with altitude acclimatisation. Apart from this, everything was excellent.”

    “Can't recommend enough. Corresponding with Rana before the trek over email was easy and he was very helpful and responsive dealing with our (many) questions. Our guide  Rohit was knowledgeable, friendly and extremely helpful and our Porter Malpa and Subash were also great company and very kind. Adventure Himalayan  arranged for all of our accommodation ahead of time, reviewed our blood oxygen levels every morning and evening ahead of time and also suggested side treks we could go on along the way. Thank you , Rana and Adventure Himalayan team”.
