Langtang Gosainkunda trek happens within the Langtang National Park area, one of the closest trekking destinations from Kathmandu valley. This trek can be done in 13 days starting from and ending in Kathmandu. This trek will provide you with the real ambiance of the Himalayas without the high cost and time-consuming. Although there are many reasons to visit Langtang Gosainkunda, diverse culture and high-altitude landscape are the prime reason that trekkers are falling in love with this beautiful piece of heaven. 

During your first phase of the Langtang Gosainkunda trek, you will conquer Langtang valley where Himalayan Wander Walkers kept one acclimatization day to explore around Kyangjin Gompa. It is worth spending one more day at Kyanjin Gompa, where you can do many side treks like Langshisa Kharka, Tsergo Ri, and Yala Peak base camp. If you are fit enough then our guide will take you to Tsergo Ri (5033m) where the 360-degree views of the snow-capped mountains are truly breathtaking. If you are lucky enough then you will witness wild animals like blue sheep and mountain goats. Those who don’t want to join for the Tsergo Ri hike can just relax by reading books with a cup of hot coffee in cozy bakeries or can take a short hike to Kyangjin Ri which lies just above the Kyanjin village and visit a local cheese factory, Langtang Lake and the monastery. Strolling within the village provides you an opportunity to observe the local culture closely.

Extending your trek to Gosainkunda after completing Langtang valley is the best option rather than returning to Kathmandu by the same road. If your time permits then you just need 5 more days to complete Gosainkunda with Langtang Trek. The landscape of the Gosainkunda area is particular which you can’t find in other parts of Nepal. Nearby this holy Gosainkunda Lake (4380m) there you will witness eight other kundas (lakes) excluding Gosainkunda such as Naag Kunda, Surya Kunda, Ganesh Kunda, Ama Kunda, Chandra Kunda, Ragat Kunda, Bairab Kunda, and Saraswati Kunda.

Trekking Route from Langtang to Gosainkunda 

Langtang Gosainkunda trek is done in clockwise route by Himalayan Wander Walkers which is highly recommended for a successful trek in terms of good acclimatization. Langtang Gosainkunda Trek starts by driving from Kathmandu to Syabru Bensi through Trishuli River and Dunche. In Dunche you need to check your permits for Langtang Trek. After overnight spending in Syabru Bensi, your first-day trek will leave to Lama Hotel situated at the height of 2480 meters. The trail follows the Langtang River and passes a few places like Pahiro, Bamboo, and Rimche through the sub-tropical forest. After 4 to 5 hours of a hike, you will reach Lama Hotel for an overnight stay. On your second day, you will witness some beautiful places as the trail continues to climb through the forest, with occasional glimpses of Langtang Lirung between the trees and waterfalls on the way. After crossing the iron bridge you will reach Goda Tabela where the main valley opens up. Following the scenic trail, you will reach a barren land where the old Langtang village used to exist before the unfortunate earthquake in 2015. Showing a moment of respect to the valuable human lives lost during that catastrophe and your trek here will support the survivors who have resettled in nearby open land which is 5 to 10 minutes apart. From Langtang, the trail climbs gradually through Mundu village and yak pastures as the valley open out further with more engaging views. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the Kyangjin Gompa. From Kyangjin Gompa, you will retrace to Bamboo and then climb up to Thulo Syabru which leads to Gosainkund Trek.

From Thulo Syabru it will take 6 days to reach Kathmandu by spending overnight in Sing Gompa, Gosainkunda Lake, Ghopte, Kutumsang, and Chisapani. East of Gosainkund is the Helambu area where Sherpa and Hyolmo ethnics reside. Finally from Chisopani, you will trek through the Shivapuri National Parks until Sundarijal bus station where your Langtang Gosainkunda Trek comes to end. Our driver will pick your up from here and drop you at your hotel.
