    Gosaikunda Langtang Trek

    Langtang Gosainkunda trekking is an adventure within high hills and scenic ridges north of Kathmandu. It is also the closest mountain range from the capital and on route to the Tibet border.

    Gosainkunda trek with Langtang Valley is one of the best combinations within the beautiful country around Langtang Himal. It is situated in the country of Central Himalaya with various high peaks that includes Ganesh in the west, Langtang to the north, and Jugal Himal in the East.

    The Langtang Gosainkunda trekking covers most of the areas of the Langtang Himal range. One can enjoy the panoramic views from North West to the East direction to its end near the Kathmandu Valley rim.  After walking over a high pass, we end up on the other side of the Langtang area.

    An excellent lovely adventure that takes you first within beautiful Langtang Valley. Which is enclosed by an array of peaks at Kyanjin having fabulous moments. And rest day to explore its unique corners and high hills for an excellent panorama of Langtang-Ganesh and Jugal Himal.

    It starts with a drive from Kathmandu to reach the high areas of Langtang Valley. And then, after a great time, the next adventure leads toward high and holy Gosainkunda. Likewise, the walk leads through the lovely villages of Tamang and its fascinating, impressive culture interwoven with Buddhism religion. Also, you will notice its age-old heritage and traditional farm life throughout the walks.

    After a lovely walk within deep green woodland of tall rhododendron and pine trees, enter a barren rocky terrain at holy Gosainkunda.  This is regarded as the holiest of holy pilgrimage spots by both Hindu and Buddhism followers.

    In August, a great religious festival takes place, with thousands of pilgrimage visits to worship and dip and bathe in the sacred Gosainkunda pond. It’s also an exciting place to experience the holy things on this beautiful trek.

    With special time around the holy Gosainkunda, a walk leads to climbing, traversing over a high Gosainkunda-la or Laurebina pass to reach another eastern side of Langtang Himal. A walk leads past the friendly villages of Kutumsang and Patti Bhanjyang and goes to Chisapani. It is located on a ridge and offers incredible mountain range views along with stunning sunrise.

    From this high scenic hill, Langtang Gosainkunda trekking ends at Sundarijal, on the eastern suburb of the Kathmandu Valley rim. And she was then taking a short drive back to Kathmandu city after a fantastic experience and adventure in Langtang Region.

    Best Seasons for Langtang Gosainkunda trekking:

    Nearly all months of the year except the monsoon wet months from mid-June to mid-September.

    March-May is the best time for clear views till the afternoon when wildflowers are in bloom with fantastic views of the mountains. It’s a season where one experiences a pleasant day with a more relaxed morning and night time.

    October-December is another best trekking season for clear views of peaks with harsh sunlight days. It can be cold morning and night, depending on the altitude and overnight stop.
