Lanatang Gosaikunda trek is located on the North part of Nepal which will takes 7 hrs by drive to arrive in Sabrubensi from where we start exciting hiking. Trekkers should obtains Tims Card and Langtang National Park permits to trek such a unique destination. If you are looking for  a tea houses trek away from crowds like Annapurna and Everest regions then Langtang region is excellent choice. The measure areas are the Langtang valley, the sacred alpine lakes of Gosaikunda and the rolling Sherpa farmland of Helambu and it can be combined in many different ways to make a trek minimum 7 days to 16 days. In beginning we will have lush vegetation then after couple of days tree lines will stop and offer such a panoramic view of snow caved mountains, glacier etc. Once you will get Kyanjing gumpa then you will have great opportunities to explore monastery, cheese factory and 360 degree only amazing mountains scenery around of us.

The Gosaikunda trek climbs more steeply through farmland and above the tree line up an alpine ridge that offers a huge Himalaya range such as Langtang himal, Langtang Lirung once more, Ganesh Himal, Tibet border himal, Manaslu 8163m which is one of the eighth highest peak in the world, Annapurna range etc. The trail leads to Gosaikunda which will offer graceful sacred lakes such as Saraswoti Kunda, Bhairab Kunda, Gosaikunda, Surya Kunda etc. This is known as temporary living place of Hindu’s biggest god Shiva. That is why lots of Hindu pilgrims also love to visit Gosaikunda at least once in Janai Purnima. Janai Purnima is one of the holy festival of Hindu people which helds in August.

From Gosaikunda the trek will continues over the Lauribina La 4610 m (La means pass)  and arrives at Thadepati. Thadepati is well known as a amazing view point and situated at the top of the ridge. This is one of the most beautiful spot to spend overnight and explore stunning panoramic Himalaya scenery with beautiful sun rise in the morning. It is also intersection of Helambu region and Chisapani, kathmandu route. Trekkers can choose any of the option and continue towards to Kathmandu.

Langtang and Gosaikunda Trek-Very well organized

Langtang and Gosaikunda Trek-Very well organized

Rating:  

We decided to go with Nepal Trekking Experts based on our previous experience of doing Annapurna in 2017. This time we were a larger group (14 trekkers) and hence required much more coordination. Rajesh managed the email and WhatsApp communication promptly. Our trek was 15 to 23rd April, and the leaders were Rabin Neupane and Thakur Neupane. Both of them are very professional and jovial people. They guided our group very well, and ensured that even the slower people were encouraged and accompanied till the end of each day. The trek route was beautiful, with rhododendron forests and views of great mountains. The climb to Kyanjin Ri was challenging but worth the effort. Overall we had a great time, and would like do more treks with them.

Great guide - Friendly and Professional

Rating:  

Raj did a great job of taking us through the trek. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and just a great guide. When one of our group members got severe pain, he handled the situation very well, outlining the conditions for flying her back to Kathmandu. He did a good job of calling the agency, and arranging the helicopter. I always feel first aid on site can always be improved in the treks I've been on in the region, so just make sure that the guide service is well equipped. Overall, we were are very happy with Raj, and wish him the best of luck in his new business endevours.

Raj is the BEST

Rating:  

I went on the Langtang and Ghorepani treks with Raj and he is honestly the best trekking guide in all of Nepal, and probably even in the world. Excellent service, understanding, encouraging and down to earth. Basically he has every quality you'd want a person to have who is guiding you through tough terrain and caring for your wellbeing. We did the Langtang trek in the winter, just the two of us, and it was very difficult for me (off season trek in seriously difficult conditions) but Raj was so supportive and I always trusted him. There are many trekking companies in Nepal that overcharge and scam foreigners, and you'd never know you were scammed. Raj is trustworthy and fair, always offers the best prices for the best service. Don't go to anyone else.
