The Langtang, Gosaikunda, and Helambu Trek in Nepal is a stunning journey through lush forests, quaint villages, abundant wildlife, and breathtaking views of the majestic Himalayas. The 17-day trek begins with tours of Kathmandu's UNESCO World Heritage Sites.Then we drive to Syabrubeshi, a Tamang village on the banks of the Bhote Koshi River where our trek begins. We'll arrive at Kyanjin Gompa and climb Tserko Ri the next day. We had fantastic views of the Langtang Lirung (7,200m/23,622ft) range from there. Following that, we continue our trek through the stunning Langtang Valley to Gosaikunda, a sacred pilgrimage site for both Buddhists and Hindus. Furthermore, the area is named after the glistening Gosaikunda Lake, the water of which is said to have magical healing powers. On our way, we passed by a few more lakes and crossed the Laurebina Pass. After crossing the pass, our journey into the Helambu Valley begins.Another highlight of our trek was reaching the top of Ama Yangri, which stands at 3,800 meters. The view of the Himalayas from the summit is said to be comparable to that of Poon Hill. We can almost touch Mt. Shishapangma and the Langtang ranges from here. We spend a few more days walking in the Helambu region before returning to Kathmandu.
The Langtang Gosaikunda Circuit Trek is one of the longest, challenging and adventurous treks in the Langtang region and the Helambu region of Nepal. The trek is a moderate to strenuous trek which can be accomplished by trekkers with average physical fitness. Hiking is enjoyable in any season, but trekking in the best seasons, such as spring and autumn, provides an opportunity to enjoy the exquisite scenery and pristine surroundings.The trek is the best Langtang region trek because it allows you to cross the highest Laurebinayak pass and visit the region's sacred lakes, including Gosaikunda Lake.

After breakfast, we embarked on a guided tour of some of Kathmandu's most historically and spiritually significant sites. The historic Durbar Square, the sacred Hindu temple of Pashupatinath, the famed ‘Monkey Temple' (Swayambhunath), and the Buddhist shrine (Bouddhanath), which is one of the world's largest stupas, are all recognized World Heritage Sites. A pre-trip meeting will take place at midday, where we will meet our trek leader and other team members. We will be able to ask any questions we may have concerning our upcoming journey in Kathmandu at the meeting.
We start our overland journey about 7 AM in the morning heading north out of Kathmandu through scenic foothills to Syabrubesshi VIA Dhunche.The first part of your drive up to Trishuli Bazaar is quite smooth. The path moves along the blacktopped road. During the rainy season, the road is sometimes blocked due to landslides.
Today is our first trekking day through Bamboo (1,960m.). Some of the places make ascents and descents. At the end the trail is easy and level to the Lama Hotel. En route if we are lucky we can see red pandas, bears and monkeys.
We depart Lama Hotel towards Langtang village.. At Ghora Tabela the trail emerges from the forest. While walking here, we will catch a glimpse of flora and fauna. Once there was a Tibetan resettlement project, but now it is a Nepalese army post though it has no permanent inhabitants. The trail continues to climb gently and the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during the summer. We can visit a monastery on the way to Langtang.
Today you climb slowly through small villages and Yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyangjin.
This day is reserved for rest and to explore the surrounding area. You will visit the Kyangjin monastery and the cheese factory, walk up the moraine to see the spectacular ice faces and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung or ascend Kyangjin Ri (4,350m./14.271ft.), directly at the rear of the village for a breathtaking panorama of the Langtang peaks or We can make day trip to Tserkori as well.
From Kyangjin, we retrace our trekking route following the Langtang Khola to Langtang village and on to Ghoda Tabela. After lunch we continue the steep descent to Lama Hotel.
Today we walk through bamboo & rhododendron forest where we may see the local wild boar as well as other animal and birds on the way to Thulo-Syabru village. En route we have marvelous and close-up view of Mt. Ganesh Himal. Firstly we do easy down hill walk following the river bank but last part we steeply climb up hill for couple of hours until we reach the village at Thulo Syabru.
Today we walk around 5-6 hours through dense forest of pine and rhododendron to reach Sing Gompa (Chandan Bari) where we stay overnight at lodge. The trail from here is mostly uphill with typically Himalayan terrain. We enjoy excellent views of the mountain and natural scenery from open areas we reach. After arrival in hotel we refreshed and then make an excursion to cheese factory as well as forested area.
Today we got to enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the Himalayas, including the Annapurnas, Hiunchuli, Manaslu, Ganesh and Langtang. We spend the rest of the day following a ridge and getting a glimpse of the first of the holy lakes.The third lake, Gosaikunda (4380m), is of particular religious and cultural significance for the Nepalese and is one of Nepal’s most sought-after pilgrimage sites. The lake is surrounded by mountains on almost all sides and has a great ensemble of nine other lakes to accompany it. Every year, during Janai Purnima in August, hundreds of Hindu pilgrims visit the lake for a holy bath. The large rock at the center of the lake is said to be the remains of a Shiva shrine.
Before ascending to the Laurebina Pass, we moved around the lake's edge (4610m). The Lauribina La (pass) marks the start of the Helambu region, which leads to the Melamchi valley. The trail is rocky and passes through moraines, but it is well-marked with cairns. Before reaching the pass, we passed through three more small lakes. We ascend a short hill and are rewarded with spectacular views of the surrounding area. Before arriving in Ghopte, our trail goes through Surya kunda.
On a trail that runs through lush woodlands, we go uphill and downward. Thare Pati Village is reached by walking through the forest on a trail. We continued our walk by climbing a ridge above the hamlet. The view from the ridge of the Nepalese highlands, particularly Soli Danda, is breathtaking. We passed under two suspension bridges before arriving in Melamchigaon, a lovely town with a monastery.
Below Tarkeghyang, we pass a stupa and cross a tiny brook. Our trail winds through trees on its way to Ama Yangri, the highest point on our climb today at 3,800 meters. At the summit of the hill, there is a stupa with Buddhist prayer flags. We also have spectacular views of Mt. Shishapangma and the Langtang mountains. We can practically touch the mountains because they are so close. We frequently spot yaks grazing in the bushes as we descend into the forest. Before arriving in Tarkeghyang, a picturesque Sherpa settlement, we also walked on a damaged stone trail.

After breakfast, we set out on our journey. The track is easy to follow and takes you through beautiful woodlands. We passed past picturesque villages, canyons, a monastery, and a historic wall on our way to Sermathang. It's a lovely Sherpa community with spectacular views of the Ganesh Himal, Jugal Himal, and Langtang peaks. On a clear day, Mt. Everest may be seen in the distance.
To get to the Melamchi Bazaar, we hiked through meadows, fields, and picturesque villages. We reminisce about our vacation to the Langtang and Helambu regions as we drive back to Kathmandu. We freshened up and rested when we arrived in Kathmandu. All Nepal Adventure will throw a goodbye meal in the evening to commemorate the successful end of our journey.
Today is the last day of our trip to Nepal! We'll be dropped off at the airport by an All Nepal Adventure representative about 3 hours before our flight. On the way home, we had plenty of time to plan our next trip to Nepal's beautiful country.
