    Essential Information

    As per your wish, we can combine the Langtang Valley trek and the Gosaikund trek with the Tamang Heritage Trail. You can directly continue to the Lama hotel instead of returning Syabrubesi from Briddim. This way you can keep your trail to KyanjinGompa which offers you magnificent and panoramic views of the Langtang Himalaya ranges. While returning, you can stop at ThuloSyabru and then Syabrubesi. To extend, you must add 3-4 days extra to the trek.

    The top-rated trek among domestic and international trek is Gosaikund Trek. This trek has its significance and is an excellent trek with more challenges in this area. You can add this trek along with the Langtang Valley trek to experience more adventure. This trek should only be attempted on to the return from Langtang because the chances of suffering from the high altitude can not be ignored. You must add more than three days for this trek
