Langtang Gosainkunda Trek

Lantang Gosainkuna Trek– The best trek in Nepal closer to Kathmandu valley. A few hour drive and few days trek takes you to the wilderness section of Lantang region protected by Langtang National Park over years. Langtang Gosiankunda Trek meanders through the conventional, ethnic communities and untouched forest on the way to enter into the foothill of massif Langtang-Lirung Mountains. This stunning trek features the major attractions of the region that includes the visit of Kyangin Gompa, Langtang valley and simmering Gosainkunda Lake.

Langtang Gosainkunda Trek is very famous trekking route for all trekkers. It combines remote and spectacular heritage of Tamang and Sherpa people with their amazing culture and stunning mountain views. The trial crosses river several times hiking through the rhododendron forest and quaint settlements. Exploring the sacred lake, Gosainkunda (4,460m), Langtang Gosainkunda trekking trail enters into the amazing village- Helambu (Buddhist) Valley leaving Gopte and Tharepati behind.

Despite of its easy accessibility from Kathmandu, it remains relatively unexplored and less developed trekking route in Nepal. Several days of hiking through lush forest of conservation area segregated by traditional ethnic villages takes you to the alpine yak pasture land of Kyangim Gompa and sacred Gosiankunda Lake. The rare encounter of Blue Sheep, Musk Deer and other alpine wild animals along the trail makes your Langtang Gosainkunda Trek more interesting and adventurous.

Frequently Asked Questions:


Do I need previous hiking experience required to go on a trek?
If you are physically fit and have extra Exercise enough enthusiasm for the trip previous experience is not required.

Could I trek without a guide?
You could, the area is very safe and in most cases navigation is relatively easy-however with a guide you will get more out of the experience. Having someone with you that knows the local customs and language helps you interact with people you meet in remote villages, and shows that you respect their culture.

What will happen if I get sick on the trek?
Either you will get better, or if it seems serious we will evacuate you with Helicopter and will be taken to Hospital in Kathmandu where you’ll get excellent attention. Our crew is well versed in medical and emergency care and carry a reasonably comprehensive first aid kit.

What will happen if I get injured?
If it is serious (this has never happened). You will again be taken care by our staff. If evacuation is required, this will be arranged by Visit Nepal tour. It’s advised that if you have any personal doubts you should have evacuation insurance arranged. Nepal Tour Guide Team can advise you on this.

Will I get sick?
Not likely. The worst is you may get some diarrhea or temporary stomach upset. Please look our staying healthy during holiday topic for details. Follow the health advice given in our briefings during welcome dinner and you’ll be fine.

What is the food like on the trek?
Fantastic! If you haven't already tried Dal Bhat you are in for a treat - there is nothing better to fill that trekking appetite. Dal Bhat is the signature Nepali dish - rice and lentil soup served with two types of curried vegetables and pickles. It is on the menu in every tea-house on the trek. A nice breakfast specialty you might also want to try is Tibetan Gurung bread with honey. The mountain tea houses will also serve up more familiar western dishes like pizza, or muesli for the morning

Is there a problem with altitude sickness?
For our tours/treks below 4000m, there is little likelihood of being subject to altitude sickness, unless you are taking one of our more extreme adventure tours. Kathmandu rests at an altitude of only 1350-m (4430ft) and at this altitude there is no likelihood of altitude related sickness.

We’ll be advising you well in advance if altitude is an issue. Our tours/treks above 4000m do require acclimatization periods and any of our tours needing acclimatization has it built into the itinerary and that comes from 13 years of experience and the best medical advice... So don’t worry. If you want to know more about altitude sickness, please look the topic staying healthy.
