HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • The magnificent holy Gosainkund Lake nestled amidst the mountains
Start and end in Kathmandu, the "Langtang & Gosainkund Lakes" trip is a guided walking trip that takes 15 days. You will travel through Tsergo Ri, Gosainkunda, Langtang Valley and 9 other destinations in Nepal. "Langtang & Gosainkund Lakes" is a small group trip which includes accommodation, meals and others.

The stunning Langtang Valley lies to the north of Kathmandu and sees fewer trekkers than the Annapurna or Everest regions. In Autumn it is blessed with superb views of the great peak of Langtang Lirung (7246m), while in spring it comes alive with birds and flowers. This trek takes us to the glaciers below Langtang Lirung, perhaps the summits of Kyanjin Ri or Tsergo Ri (optional) for some magnificent panoramas, and the spectacular holy lake at Gosainkund, an important place of pilgrimage. Parts of the Langtang Valley and Langtang village were devastated in the 2015 earthquake and now that the lodges have been repaired or rebuilt, the best way to show support is for trekkers and tourism to return. Our new route makes use of the best lodges and forms more of a circuit that the traditional trail.

Magnificent trek!!
“This is a wonderful trek in the Langtang Valley and to the mythical Gosainkund Lane. We enjoyed the most spectacular mountain views and had the privilege of witnessing at first hand the resilience and positivism of the wonderful Nepali people who are rebuilding their communities after the devastation of the 2015 earthquake.”
