LANGTANG GOSAIKUNDA TREK


Welcome to the ‘Valley of Glaciers’, hosting one of the most spectacular trails in Nepal. In such proximity to the capital city of Kathmandu, no one expects a glimpse of the vault of Heaven - yet here it is! A majestic valley awaits sensuous exploration on the banks of Bhote Kosi River; a 360° bird's eye view unveils snow-clad mountains on every side, taking you into a romantic experience where one feels like flying between the clouds. Its presence in the Tibetan region is why it’s globally prominent; its scenic beauty and cultural abundance motivate joyful souls to visit it repeatedly! But what’s so special about Langtang Gosaikunda Trek?

Langtang Valley sits in the shadow of Heaven-kissing peaks, a place bounded by the snowy desert of Tibet to the north and dove white mountains to the south. The land belongs to the guardians of the mountains, the Sherpa, Tamang, and Lamas, who will accompany you through the captivating yak pastures and wonder woodlands with mystified waterfalls, to reach the sacred Gosaikunda Lake. Once at the lake, the spiritual aura and tranquil ambiance, combined with alpinist beauty, is an escapade beyond explanation. The Gosaikunda Trek is an additional add-on adventure to Langtang Trek for those who want to spend a little more time in the lap of the Himalayas. Moreover, the trail is easier to access than the routes of the Everest Base Camp Trek and Annapurna Circuit Treks. The ascent will be guided by awe-inspiring sights of Langtang Lirung (7,246m), Kimshung (6,781m), and Langshisha Ri (6,370m), as you trek through Himalayan dwelling tribes, whose thousand years presence amidst ostentatious mountains has its very own culture to explore. 

The outpouring Langtang River’s melody will sing into your ears while you navigate the alpine forest. Don’t turn your eyes away if you happen to see a Red Panda clinging on to the bamboo; they’re exceptionally rare and may pull out a great acrobatic move just for you!

The owners and staff of Sherpa Spirit Treks have extensive experience hosting Nepal trekking tours of various grades - from easy to moderate, as well as challenging treks and expeditions -  at the right time of the year, in the right place for the right people. We can’t wait to guide you!  

Trip Highlights

    • Take in the promising 360° panoramic views of the sky-stabbing Himalayas as you summit Kyenjing Ri (4,950m) or Tserko Ri (5,000m). It’s a spectacular non-technical hike from Kyanjing gumba which can be embarked on by any age group.

    • Discover the world-famous Langtang National Park whose distinctive features include over a thousand species of beautiful flora. The natural diversity of this trek is sure to indulge all nature seekers in a most sensuous natural experience as you traverse through sub-tropical rhododendron blossoms and scenic woodlands with majestic waterfalls; discover hidden hot springs, and get up close and personal with the natural habitats of naughty langur monkeys and red pandas.

    • Discover the sacred lake of Gosaikunda where religious devotees seek council from the Divine.
      Located at an altitude of over 4,000 meters is a fresh oligotrophic lake that's pure and holy, not to mention serene. A challenging hike will take you to the pristine pilgrimage site at an inaccessible place to the common man.

    • Get a chance to explore a traditional festival, Janai Purnima which attracts thousands of disciples every year towards Gosainkunda lake. The legend says, ‘Anyone who takes a bath in the holy Gosaikunda aqua has his sins washed off like dirt’ Sounds interesting! Contact Us to find out when this festival falls!

    • Visit several cultural heritages and sacred religious monuments, including centuries-old ornate Buddhist monasteries, prayer wheels, and Buddhist inscribed Mani walls for a blessed adventure.

    • Hiking through Swiss-style alpine pastures to the foot of a huge glacier at Langshisa Kharka. You might discover some hot springs in Pairo as well. Perfect for soothing aching muscles, or at least dipping your travel-worn feet!

    • Take a moment to savor a hot cinnamon roll or an alfresco plate of Nak cheese while admiring the views of Langtang Lirung Himal (7,246m) at Kyanjing Gumba.

    • A close up into Himalayan dwelling ethnic groups like Tamang, Sherpa, and Newari; whose thousand-year’s presence amidst ostentatious mountains has its very own culture to explore.

    • Enjoy a tasty and rejuvenating yeasty cheese at 3,500 meters from the first and the finest Gompa Cheese Factory. And if you feel thirsty along the way, the Himalayan mineral-rich water is a stomach enlightener on the Langtang Trek!

    • Get to see the exotic wild beehives on the cliff sides of the mountains, made by the Himalayan honey bees. Extracted from the nectar of various rhododendron trees and countless flowers, it is a pure delight to have on the way. But don’t eat too much - it has the strange side effect of intoxication!
