Overview of Langtang Helambu Trek

Langtang Helambu Trek starts with the bus ride to Syaprubeshi, Rasuwa, from Kathmandu. The Langtang trekking would be a mesmerizing experience. Trekker encounters animals, birds, and terrains. However, dangerous animals are rarely encountered. Instead, the sight of a national bird of Nepal Daphe (Lophophorus), Rhododendron Forests, and Monkey is a bonus. And Wildcats would be an enthralling experience.

The Langtang Gosaikunda, Helambu Trek region, boasts the vibrant feeling of remoteness and peace. Even if it is so near to Kathmandu. The nearest trekking route of Nepal excites you with the diverse package of downhill and uphill trails witnessing the birds, animals, forests, rivers, and mountains.


Langtang Helambu Trek Highlights

  • Sightseeing in UNESCO Heritage sites
  • Langtang Valley Explore
  • Sacred Lake – Gosainkunda
  • Himalayan View from Kyanjin Ri (4350 meters)
  • Lauribinayak Pass (4610 meters)
  • Helambu Valley

The Gosainkunda Lake itself embarks the landmark high-altitude natural water reservoir. The wilderness and the fear of the unknown prevail. Langtang Helambu Trek on the faint trail would give your adrenaline the test of perseverance and excitement.

The sacred lake for Hindu and Buddhist followers shows you the moral lesson on religious harmony. The lake itself symbolizes the sacrifice for the cause of goodness.

Lord Shiva once drank the poison extracted from the Sea to save humanity. Poison nearly destroyed people. He felt enormous pain and stroked the hills of Gosaikunda. I am eventually forming the source of water for the Lake. The water neutralized the pain and poison. Therefore, the lake is the symbol of eternal peace and sacrifice.

Every year, thousands of domestic and international tourists visit this sacred place. The Langtang trek is highly recommended for the unique experience of religion, harmony, and nature.

    I did the Langtang Helambu Trek and it was very impressive! One of the most beautiful experiences I had in my life. The lake, the view and changing landscapes are breathtaking.
    The team is very serious and welcoming, it was a real pleasure working with them. We had Mingmar as a guide, who I can only strongly recommend. He is very very nice and always looked greatly after us.
    Thank you! Peregrine Treks for making this trek happen. We will be back for more trekking that is for sure.
