Overview

Overview

This trekking leads you through the Langtang valley eventually taking you to the famous Gosainkunda, a sacred Himalayan lake in the region. Many Hindus and Buddhist people make a pilgrimage there every year. Langtang Valley Trekking is one of the nearest Himalayan trekking from Kathmandu valley. The trip starts with a scenic drive to Dhunche from Kathmandu. Eight hours by bus on a mountain highway through many beautiful areas takes you to Syabrubensi where you spend overnight and prepare for the trekking.

The next few days of trekking take you through beautiful villages and mountain terrains in Langtang valley. From Syabrubensi to Lama hotel; Kyanjin Gompa to Ghoda Tabela and Gosainkunda is a mystical journey in the Himalayas. This wonderful trekking in the Langtang region brings you the memory worthy to cherish.

The closest trekking region from Kathmandu, the Langtang Valley Trekking is rising as a beautiful trekking destination in the Himalayas. Although closer to Kathmandu than any other Himalayan trekking region, Langtang was overshadowed by Everest and Annapurna trekking regions.

The beautiful trekking trail through the ethnic Tamang settlements toward the beautiful Langtang range for a spectacular view is just awesome. Following the Tamang Heritage Trail to go closer to the Langtang range of the Himalayas blends a great cultural experience with the mountain serenity to make a perfect adventure trekking holiday.
