Trip Overview

This trek combines the diverse and spectacular Langtang Valley Trek, with the high mountains, glaciers and lakes of Gosaikunda.

The first part of the trail follows the same route as the Langtang Trek, through lush forests, home to the endangered red panda, picturesque villages influenced by Tibetan culture and alpine meadows, up to the majestic Himalayan views of Kyanjin Gompa and Kyanjin Ri.

The second part of the trail heads to Gosaikunda, a beautiful sacred lake for Hindus and Buddhists. Its waters are believed to have a healing power and legend has it that once you bathe in this holy lake all your pain, sorrows and sins will be washed away. Thousands of Hindu pilgrims gather at the lake on the full moon day of July/August to change their janais, the sacred thread worn around the body by Hindu Brahmins.

Along the trail you will get great views of Ganesh Himal, Langtang Lirung, Manaslu range, Hiunchuli and Tibetan peaks.

After crossing the Laurebina La Pass (4654m/15269ft), two hours southeast of Gosaikunda adorned with Buddhist prayer flags, the route descends to Ghopte with superb views north to the Himalayas and south to forested hills and the city of Kathmandu.

Time spent exploring timeless Kathmandu before and after the trek completes your adventure with insights into Nepali culture and traditions.
