The 9-day trek commences from Kathmandu, leading towards Syabrubesi from where the actual hiking starts. The trek then follows the Langtang valley heading up to the Langtang glacier and the Tibetan border to Langtang village. This narrow village settled between the Himalayan ranges to the north and south, provides a spectacular view of snow-capped peaks including Langtang Lurung, and Lanshisha Ri. Continuing from Langtang village, the trek continues to Kyangijn Gompa, Lama Hotel, Chandan Bari ultimately leading to the final destination of the trek, Gosainkunda Lake.
Gosainkunda Lake has a unique combination of natural beauty and cultural richness. It is a sacred lake for adherents of Hinduism and Buddhism. During the Janai Purnima (full moon festival) in August, thousands of pilgrims from Nepal, India and other Asian countries visit this holy lake to take a bath in the holy water, believing it will wash off all their sins. Gosainkunda Lake is believed to have formed from the digging of the land by trident of Lord Shiva to obtain water to quench the thirst after consuming poison.
Your walk ascends through the beautiful Himalayan ranges to Gosainkunda with a number of adjoining mountains, astonishing rhododendron forests and a wide variety of flora and fauna. Enjoy the natural world in a different way. This journey also has stunning views of Ganesh Himal, Manaslu and Annapurna massif.

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?
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.
