Overview of Langtang Trek

The trekking trails of Nepal have been renowned as the best holiday place in the world. Among many such classic trekking trails of Nepal, the Langtang Trek has been known for a century.

Earlier, pilgrims used to do a tough climb to Gosaikunda to wash their sins. Gosaikunda is considered holy for both Hindus and Buddhists alike. This perfect amalgamation makes the most beautiful trek in Nepal. 140 km of Kathmandu, towards North, the Langtang trek is an easily accessible trek.

This trek mixes the distinct landscape, high mountain views, and lakes Gosaikunda. Thanks to fascinating local history, each chapter of Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is full of wonder- the culture and lifestyle, glaciers and mountains, and flora and fauna.


Langtang Trek highlights

  • Explore the renowned Kyanjin Gompa, and its cheeses factory
  • Witness the pristine beauty of the holy lake of Gosainkunda
  • Witness rich Tibetan culture and hospitality within the Tamang ethnic group
  • Visiting the sacred lake of Gosaikunda
  • Spectacular mountain view from Tsergo Ri and Gosaikunda La pass (4610m)
  • Encounter the rear flora and fauna residing North of Kathmandu

The path follows the river via a forest of pine, bamboo, and rhododendron. The engaging scenario of yaks dwelling in the pastures makes the stunning alpine meadows.

These two weeks of the walk via the Langtang valley are moderately complex. Walking on the Bhote Kosi River banks to the sacred Gosaikunda Lake offers expansive mountain views.

You interact with the welcoming Tamang people and witness their religious practices and language. The pleasing local and the Buddhist monasteries that appear out of nowhere make the charming Langtang valley trek.

 Langtang Trek route

The journey to Langtang village commences from the city of Kathmandu itself. The short and exciting drive along the branch of Trisuli River takes us to Syabrubesi, the trailhead for the walk. From Syabrubesi, the path winds on the dense forest of Rhododendron forest.

The timberline takes us across glacial moraine as we enter the re-built village of Langtang. Further walk to the valley’s inner sanctum bestows us with the dramatic setting for Kyanjin Gompa. We will visit the yak cheese before we climb to the hilltop to render the panoramic views of the Himalayas. The peak of Langtang Lirung, 7234 meters, is visible from the valley.

After this classic Langtang trek route, we head toward Gosaikunda. Then, we head to the southeast across the terraced fields. Walking past the forest into the scenic highlands bestows the shocking view of Manaslu (8163m).

The Tibetan plateau to the North takes us to Gosaikunda. At this point, the pristine blue Lake of Gosaikunda shakes our hearts to the core. Together, the serene mountain valley offers a magical outlook of the distant Himalayan peaks.

The Langtang Valley Trek with Gosaikunda ends with the strenuous walk to the Gosaikunda pass. The dramatic views of the east await those who stay the night there. The final trail takes us to the forest of Chisapani and onwards to Sundarijal. Sundarijal is another popular destination among local tourists. A short drive brings us to Kathmandu, where we spend our trip’s final day.
