The Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu trek is one of the most sought after trekking trails in
Langtang Region. The trip combines three major areas north of Kathmandu along the border of Tibet Langtang, the sacred Gosainkunda Lake and Helambu. This sublime outing in the gentle wilderness of Langtang gives us the chance to explore villages & interact with the local folks & understand their traditions & customs on these harsh mountains, to climb small peaks and to visit see glaciers at convenient lower altitudes. We can trek through Langtang via the holy lakes of Gosainkunda at 4300m where thousands of Hindu pilgrims visit the tranquil lakes during the full moon festival in August.
The trek commences with an overland journey to the small commercial hub of Syabru, the main trading post of the area. From here we spend four days hiking up through this beautiful alpine valley to Kyangjin where we rest for a day for some exploration of the high mountains and glacial systems. We track back for three days before a journey to the sacred lakes of Gosainkunda, a major pilgrimage sight for both Hindus and Buddhists. We cross the Laurebina pass (4600m) and drop into the lush Helambu region and get first hand experiences of different cultural lifestyles.
