The classic Langtang Gosainkunda Trek combines the eye-catching landscapes and natural beauty of the Langtang region along with the high mountain lakes around the sacred Gosainkunda. The joyful adventure takes you through the Langtang National Park and many age-old settlements of the Tamang people while being accompanied by scenic views of the Langtang Himal Range in the backdrop.
The 14-days Langtang and Gosainkunda start with your arrival in Kathmandu. From Kathmandu, you drive to Sybrubensi and start the trek. The trail takes you through exotic rhododendron and pine forests. It also provides an opportunity to witness the rare wildlife such as the red panda residing inside Langtang National Park.
The trek takes you to the old yet beautiful Kyanjin Gompa that serves an enthralling view of the Langtang Himal Range. After a day of acclimatization at Kyanjin Gompa, you move ahead to reach the pristine lakes of Gosainkunda. En route, you can observe the village life, local culture, and tradition of the indigenous Tamang community of the Langtang region.
As you move ahead, you will be greeted by breathtaking views of mountain peaks such as Langtang Lirung (7246m), Gangchempo (6388m), Ganesh Himal (7422 m), Manaslu (8516m), and many others. The Gosainkunda area is surrounded by numerous lakes but the most popular ones are Saraswati Kunda, Bhairab Kunda, and Gosainkunda.
Every August, thousands of devotees come to bathe in the holy Gosainkunda so that they can be free of their sins and are eligible to pay homage to Lord Shiva. February–June, and September–November the best seasons to head for this trek.
