Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is the extended version of the Langtang Valley Trek that further ascends to the sacred Gosaikunda Lake (4,380 m) and makes the journey a little more adventurous and challenging. Located in the north of Kathmandu Valley, the Langtang region is one of the most beautiful and famous trekking regions in Nepal. The region boasts less-crowded trekking trails, verdant forests, green pastures, abundant flora and fauna, rich Tibetan culture, and breath-taking landscapes.
Langtang Gosaikunda Trek route has quick access from Kathmandu. You can reach the starting point of the trek within a few hours of driving from Kathmandu. The trail moves along the Bhote Koshi river and climbs to Langtang valley to the Gosaikunda lake. You will be trekking through dense forests of rhododendron, pine, oak, juniper, and many others, crossing thrilling suspension bridges and many quaint mountain villages inhabited by Tamangs & Sherpas.
The Tamangs here are believed to be the descendants of Tibetans. Most of their culture, tradition, and practices are similar to Tibetans. During the Langtang Gosaikunda Trek, you will also come across ancient monasteries, prayer wheels, mani walls, and colorful prayer flags. Kyanjin Gompa (3,830 m) and Shin Gompa (3,300 m) are the two main gompas you will visit on the route. Likewise, the Gosaikunda Lake adds more value to the religious aspect of Langtang Gosaikunda Trekking.
You will get to see spectacular views of snow-clustered mountains like Ganesh Himal (7,422 m), Langtang Lirung (7,245 m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163 m), Mt. Annapurna (8,091 m), Mt. Shishapangma (8,013 m), and many others through the Langtang Gosaikunda Trek. However, the views from Tserko Ri and Laurebina Pass are exceptional. As most of the trail goes through the Langtang National Park, you may also see wildlife like mountain goats, langur monkeys, yaks, Himalayan black bear, wild boar, musk deer, leopard, red panda, and a range of birds on the way.
