All About Langtang Gosaikunda Trekking

Starts with an overland journey to Dunche, 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.
Here, mountains rise soaring towards the sky. The landscapes we cross are extremely varied; rice-terraces, gigantic rhododendron, pine forest, and in the highest parts, a rock and shrub wilderness with the fascinating backdrop of snow capped peaks. This trek also provides a chance to observe one of a holy site of Hindu and Buddhist the sacred Gosainkunda Lake.
We cross the Laurebina pass (4600 meters) and drop into the lush Helambu region and different cultural experiences eventually finishing the trek an hours drive from Kathmandu. This trek offers fascinating views of Langtang range, Ganesh Himal, Dorje Lakap, Nayakanga, and Langshisa etc.
