Langtang Gosainkunda

Langtang Gosainkunda Trek is one of the popular treks in the Langtang region. North of Kathmandu valley lies Ganesh Himal and Langtang Lirung. Nestled at the foot of these Himalayan ranges is a beautiful, secluded, valley filled with nature‘s bounty. The region is culturally rich, mostly inhabited by Tamang and Sherpa communities and their tradition, rituals, life-styles, cultures spiritually appeal to anyone’s mind. The Langtang region is protected as Langtang National Park. The rare red pandas lurk in dense lichen-draped rhododendron thickets, heards of blue sheep graze the alpine meadows and lammergeiers glide over glaciated valleys amidst a scenery of lofty Himalayan peaks. The Langtang valley is aptly called “the valley of glaciers”, monasteries and a sacred lake Gosainkunda.

In this trekking trail, trekkers can witness awesome and breathtaking views of snowy great Himalaya’s peaks like Langtang Himal (6581 m), Langtang Ri (7246 m), Lakpha Dorje Kimsung (6745 m), Ganesh Himal 1 (7406 m), Ganesh II (7150 m), Ganesh III (7130 m), Yala Peak (5560 m), Ganjal Chuli (5844m), Langshisa Ri (6310 m), Morimoto peak (6750 m), Pongen Dopku (8930 m), Tembthang (5702 m), Salbachum (6707 m), Kyungka Ri (6979 m), Langtang Ri (7205 m), Chusmodo (6508 m). In addition, rivers such as Trishuli, Bhote Koshi and other small streams captivate a person’s eyes and mind. Apart from these, beautiful forests of Pine, Bamboo, Rhododendron and others trees and plants, landscapes, glaciers, waterfalls and wild animals are some other attractions of the trek.
