Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu Trek

The Gosainkund pass trekking area is situated close to the Tibetan border, enclosed by snow-capped mountains such as Langtang Lirung (7246m). The trek offers grand views of the Himalayan ranges, including the peaks of Dorje Lhakpa, Gauri Shankar, Langshisa Ri, Gangchenpo, Yala peak, Naya Kanga, the Rolwaling range, and on clear days, beyond to the Annapurnas. Other highlights are the holy lake of Gosainkund, Tibetan-style monasteries and the wild animals, such as mountain thar, snow leopard, jackal, red panda and monkeys. During the trek we pass through subtropical jungle, then dense forest of oak, birch and pine, then the upper Langtang valley, with its alpine meadows and yak pastures.

The trekking begins at Syabrubesi, which is a 7–8hr drive from Kathmandu. Soon we enter enchanting larch and rhododendron forests, rich in wild flowers and birdlife. Higher up in the Langtang Valley, the terrain is barren and dominated by vast glacial features. After climbing a nearby peak for an amazing mountain panorama, we descend from the Upper Langtang Valley to Syabru village. It’s a long climb from there to the holy Gosainkund Lake and the Laurebina pass (4610m) before descending into the Helambu district. There should be stunning views of Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and the Annapurna massif. In the Helambu area our route takes us through Tharapati, Tarkeghyang, Sermathang and on to Melamchi Pul Bazaar. From here we travel by private vehicle or bus to Kathmandu.
