About Langtang Gosaikunda Trek
Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is the nearest Himalayan Trekking region from the Kathmandu valley. This trek is a wonderful trip combining three trekking trails, such as the Langtang Valley trek, Gosaikunda trek and the Helambu trek.
Following the Trishuli River north of Kathmandu, we drive via Trishuli Bazaar and Dhunche to Syabrubesi, Tamang village on the very edge of Langtang National Park.
Then we turn east into the Langtang Valley, cross the river couple of times as we go up a gorge-like lower part of the valley. On our way to the Langtang village, we cross the oak and rhododendron forests and even cross the glacial moraine.
The Langtang Gosaikunda trek starts from the lower Langtang Valley, which takes you through forests and through villages and farmlands of many Tibetan origins. The deep gorges of the Bhote Koshi River and the Langtang Khola River are dense forested with rhododendron, oak, maple and alder.
Crossing the forest around Ghoda-tabela in the lower Langtang Valley and below Gosaikunda is inhabited by a red panda, a symbol of the healthy ecosystem of the Himalayas.
The Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is a wonderful combination of natural, cultural, geographical and biological beauties. For those who want to trek this off the beaten path and see something completely different from the many more touristy areas of the country, this is the perfect trek.
