Langtang Valley and Gosaikunda trek have been the favorite of trekkers because of their richness in expansive natural views, landscapes, biodiversity, vegetation, and the cultural significance of this place. Located towards the north of Kathmandu, the Langtang region borders China and is the nearest Himalayan region from the capital. Langtang is known as the “Valley of Glaciers” and also offers stunning views of the Himalayas i.e. Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal, Langshisha Ri, Yala peak, Gangchempu, Ganja-La range, Dorje Lakpa, Gauri Shankar, and various other snow-capped peaks around the region.

The beautiful valley comprises many monasteries which we witness while on our trek. We’ll begin our journey from Kathmandu, driving to Syapur Besi, where we begin our trek. We’ll trek to Kjangjin Ri to witness the majestic Langtang Himal along with its surrounding massif. After the trek to Langtang, we descend to Thulosyarbu and walk uphill towards Gosaikunda. We’ll trek down to Sundarijal upon return where we’ll be picked up by a Van to be back to the hotel.
