  • Explore traditional Sherpa and Tamang villages
  • Discover Gosaikunda, a revered place of pilgrimage for Buddhists and Hindus
This 17-day adventure is a culturally enriching trek with amazing views of the Himalayas in the Langtang, Gosaikunda and Helambu regions of Nepal. The trek passes through lush forests, quaint villages and mountain landscape with abundant wildlife and outstanding views of the majestic Himalayas.

The trip begins in Kathmandu with tours of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We drive to Syabrubesi, a Tamang village located on the banks of the Bhote Koshi River, and begin our trek. Reach Kyanjin Gompa and climb Tserko Ri the next day. From here you will get tremendous views of the Langtang Lirung range. Next, we continue our journey in the beautiful Langtang Valley and reach Gosaikunda, a revered place of pilgrimage for Buddhists and Hindus. The water of Gosaikunda Lake is believed to have magical healing powers. We then pass by a few more lakes and cross the Laurebina Pass. Our trek in the Helambu Valley begins after crossing the pass. Another highlight is reaching the top of Ama Yangri at 3,800 meters. The view of the Himalayas from the top of the hill is believed to rival that of Poon Hill. From here, Mount Shishapangma and the Langtang ranges seem so close where you can almost touch them. Continue trekking in the Helambu region for a few more days and end our remarkable journey to the mountains with a drive back to Kathmandu.

Challenge yourself and discover the special culture, landscape, nature, and history of the Langtang region.

“This was our first trip to the Himalayas and we had the absolute greatest experience ever, thanks in total to the service from the Alpine Club Himalaya and our sherpa/guide Chandan Magar. Chandan proved to be more then the most capable and knowledgable of guides, always looking after us etc., he was also very personable and fun to spend with me during the trek ! We had many great laughs, eclipsed only by the wonderful places he took us to see. His knowledge and grasp of everything Nepali gave a deep insight into much more then just the trekking and mountains whcih Nepal is famous for. If you do a trek in Nepal ask first for Chandan Magar and you know your money is well spent! Sujan, who booked the tour and everything else for us from Alpine Hotel and apartment in Kathmandu, was also not only a great professional but a good friend to have when overseas and far from home. All in all what else can I say other then that I cannot wait to do this all again in future!”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
