In the north of Kathmandu lies a magnificent Ganesh Himal and Langtang Lirung. Snuggled at the lap of those Himalayan ranges is a stunning sheltered valley filled with nature’s reward - the Langtang National Park.

In this park, we can see the red pandas lurk in dense lichen-draped rhododendron thickets, herds of blue sheep graze the alpine meadows and glaciated valleys amidst the scenery of supercilious Himalayan peaks. The outstanding Langtang Gosainkunda Trek combines the beauty of peak sceneries and the happiness of meeting the Tamang and Sherpa’s community, whose kindheartedness and generosity are very popular.

This itinerary, through pine, oak and rhododendron forests, is less recurrence than others and will appeal to mountain lovers who want to get off the beaten track. The 16 days Langtang Gosainkunda Trek passes by the sanctified lakes at Gosaikunda and the Laurebina (4610 m). Walk down to Dhunche (the gateway of Langtang Trek) and straightly drive back to Kathmandu.

Langtang trek

Had an amazing eight day trek in Langtang with guide Mansoon. Stunning scenery and lovely villages. The trek was challenging in areas but the pace made the hiking doable for most ages. This area is remote so there are no crowds on the trails and the guest houses are clean and very friendly. If you are coming to Nepal—definitely explore lovely LAngtang with Raj and his trekking company Thank you Raj for your oversight and hospitality as always. Mansoon you are a great guide!

Langtang trek

I went trekking in Langtang in Apr. Everything was perfect, stunning mountains, spectacular glaciers, beatiful rhododendrons (the national flower), as well as the guide trekking. Luckily I made a good choice of picking Pradeep Dahal as my trekking guide. He is experienced, sincere and honest that gives me confidence and makes me enjoy my solo trek.

Breathtaking Langtang Gosaikunda Trek

It was beautiful 10 days trekking this place in a company of Santa and Milan. They are professional, helpful and nice. The trek itself is just beautiful. You meet with the Nepali culture, talk to locals, climb mountains, drink a lot of masala tea, eat plenty of daal bhat and experience many new things and feelings.
