Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu Trekking

Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu TrekkingLangtang is a narrow valley, that lies just south of Tibet boarder, sandwiched between main Himalayan range to the northern and a slightly lower range of snow clad peaks to the south. This high and isolated region is habituated by people of Tibetan origin, who practice Buddhism. A visit to Langtang valleys offers an opportunity to explore village and monasteries as well as to visit glaciers at the head of the valley and views of Mt. Langtang, Mt. Dorjelakpsa 6990m., Mt. Lirung 7245m., Mt. Ganesh 7406m etc. This Langtang Gosainkunda trekking is closer to Kathmandu than other trekking region. Just after the monsoon, langtang trek gives superb views of the great peak of Langtang Lirung (7246m) which dominates the upper valley and straddles the Tibetan border. In spring time Langtang Gosainkunda trek is an ideal place to spot birds and flowers of Nepal. According to a legend, a lama following a runaway yak discovered the valley, hence the name -Lang (Tibetan name for YAK), Tang (more currently "Dhang" means to follow). There are good opportunities for moderate climbing excursions here, you should allow some extra days for exploration of the extensive glacier system. Our return route takes us past the holy lakes of Gosainkunda, an important place of pilgrimage, and over a high pass that brings us almost to the edge of Kathmandu itself. Langtang Gosainkunda is a most popular short and medium range treks in Nepal with many attractions: scenic grandeur, glimpse of Sherpa & Tamang life, rhododendron forest, lakes, glaciers & Snow Mountains. Langtang Gosainkunda trek begins from Dhunche and the trail leads up to Kyanchin Gompa and passes the sacred lake, Gosainkunda (4602m.). Exploring colorful Helambu region with delightful Sherpa villages, the trek ends in Kathmandu.
