Trip Indroduction

Langtang Gosainkunda Trek is done in the Langtang region, located in the mid of Nepal towards the north in the Himalayan range. The Langtang national park of this region was the first national park of Nepal established in 1976. The region is very prosperous with beautiful alpine forests, varieties of floras and faunas all blessed by the snow-capped Himalayan mountain ranges over the protected national park. The Langtang region is also very popular among Nepal dwellers due to the location of the holy lake of Gosaikunda.  It is a sacred pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists.  The Langtang Gosaikunda trek offers natural as well as cultural experience for those seeking the true Himalayan life. Trekking langtang Gosainkunda is always a good idea for your vacation in Nepal because it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.

The Langtang gosainkunda trekking takes you through the cool environment of the mountains with dense forests, gorgeous waterfalls, and range of varieties of birds and animals and across beautiful traditional Nepali villages. The views of the Himalayas from the trekking trail is astounding, especially the majestic Langtang Lirung Himal. The other Himalayan mountains we can view from here are the great Manaslu, Annapurna, and Ganesh Himal.  We also come across many stupas, chortens and Buddhist monasteries with spiritual chanting and prayer wheels echoing at a distance. The trail passes through a large mound of stone with prayers written on them, which is the largest mani wall in Nepal. The trail may be a bit strenuous as it ascends and descends throughout the trek, but the colorful rhododendron flowers and the pristine snow-capped mountains keep you determined to reach all the magnificent destinations of Langtang. The trek demands trekkers to be of moderate physical fitness who can walk up to 6 or 7 hours a day with a light backpack. 

Langtang gosaikunda trek begins from Syabrubesi, a beautiful Tamang village at the banks of Bhote Koshi River, and through the amazing heritage of  Langtang valley which is also known as the ‘valley of glaciers’. The Langtang valley is the closest you could get to view the grand snow-capped mountain and ice glaciers. The valley has a rocky rugged terrain with alpine forests and steady mountains streams with adequate grassy meadows. From the heritage of Langtang valley, we reach the worshipped lake of Gosaikunda. The water of Gosaikunda is considered sacred as it is deemed to have spiritual powers that heal one’s body. During the month of August on the auspicious day of Janai Purnima, many Hindu Pilgrims take a dip in the holy water. There are also many other beautiful water bodies accumulated in the vicinity. We also visit the old Buddhist shrines like the Langtang Gompa and Kyanjin Gompa. Through the high pass like the Chorko Ri, you can have a closer panoramic view of the Langtang, Langrisa, Langtang-Ri and Ganjala peak.

Accomodation

You will stay in a three-star hotel in Kathmandu as per B/B, probably in Thamel, a tourist hub in Kathmandu. The rooms are clean, spacious and simple with comfortable beds, along with attached bathrooms with hot water supply. The rooms are usually double bedrooms, but it can be supplemented with single rooms with additional fees. Most of our suggested hotels are located in peaceful inner parts of Thamel, surrounded by beautiful gardens. The hotels have in-house restaurant bars as well as spas. The restaurants provide popular courses over the world and also delicious local cuisines. 

Accommodation during the Langtang Gosaikunda trek includes lodging in guest houses or tea houses with basic furnished rooms and attached bathroom. Many lodges have the modern type sitting toilets attached with the room, but as we get further through the trek, the lodges get more basic with only bed and a side table in the room and squat-type toilets, mostly common toilets, located outside the room. Hot water supply also depends on the location of the lodge/guest house. Most of the bathrooms have solar powered running hot water. We would discourage the use of hot water boiled over the fire woods that could cause some environmental concerns.

Meals

Meals, while you are in Kathmandu, include only breakfast. It depends on you whether you want to eat in the hotel or outside the hotel, all on your cost, and you choose where to eat and what to eat. Food in the city is not much to worry about as you will find every type of cuisine, form authentic Nepali to international dishes (continental, Italian, Tibetan, Indian, etc) around every corner of the city. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be on the basis on B/B in the city while it is included in the package during the trek.

A traditional meal outside Kathmandu is the favorite Dal-bhat, cooked rice with lentil soup, along with freshly cooked vegetables and pickles.  You can have other dishes as per the menu of the hotel or lodge. Some lodges and guest houses have a lavish menu with new dishes to try including some western type food like pizza, chips, and pasta. Every tea house along the trek route serve you with refreshing Nepali milk tea, that you can alternate it with black tea, lemon tea or a more traditional type of tea made with ghee and salt along with snacks.

Travel season

Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is best during spring and autumn season. The spring (March-May) is a warm period of the year with blossoming flowers, and more birds and animals available to spot during the trek. This is the season to view the glorious rhododendron forest in its full bloom. Autumn (September to mid-December) is also a good season as the weather is neither hot nor cold. There is a chill in the air with clear Himalayan mountain ranges, making the trek a pleasant and astounding walk through the mountains. 

It is reasonable to not trek in the Himalayas during the winter as Himalayan Mountains experience heavy snowfall and cold during the winter seasons. It is also not advisable to trek during summer and monsoon season.

Day 1: Arrive in Kathmandu (1350m)

Himalayan monk representative will pick you up at Tribhuwan International airport in Kathmandu and transfer you to Hotel Taleju Boutique or similar hotel on B/B basis.
