Langtang is the name of region in the Himalayas of Nepal where a beautiful Langtang Valley   and fresh water Lake Gosainkund are located. Both these places lie to the north of the Kathmandu Valley and are connected by road from Kathmandu to Dhunche or Shyaprubeshi within the distance of  130 km. Langtang , literally, is considered Nepal’s third most popular trekking region where one can explore  incomparable natural beauty and cultural richness.

Langtang Gosainkund trek takes you right into some of the wildest and most picturesque areas of Nepal. Upon arrival at the beautiful hill town of Syabrubensi you  begin the trek through beautiful and conifer forests of the Langtang National Park towards the higher altitude.

In the spring, the entire trekking route looks like a natural garden of wild colorful flowers. First you will reach the Langtang valley and then walk over the high alpine yak pastures, glaciers and moraines around Kyangin and trek further up the Sacred Lake of Gosainkund(4380 m). The area around Lake Gosainkund is most of the time enveloped in mist, and on clear weather we can see beautiful mountains to the north. In the winter the lake remains frozen. Here, you will find peace and serene environment. Gosainkund is sacred for both Hindus and Buddhist, and every full moon day in the month of August many visitors throng to celebrate the Gosainkund festival. From Gosainkund you will enjoy panoramic views of snow-clad mountains extended as far as Annapurna Himalayan Range. The large black rock in the middle of the Gosainkund Lake is regarded as remains of Shiva and it is believed that the waters of the lake flow through the underground channel to the water basin of Khumbheshwar temple in Patan.

At this higher altitude, the terrain transforms to arid alpine above tree line and the population gets sparser. Crossing Laurabina La Pass at (4,615m), adjoining the Gosainkund and Helambu region is another challenge for the adventure enthusiasts.

In addition to enjoying the  spectacular scenery, a visit to the Langtang region  is an opportunity to explore the lifestyle and culture of the Tamangs ( one of the ethnic groups of people) ,whose craftsmanship, language, costume and houses bear uniqueness.

During the Langtang and Gosainkund trekking you will have an opportunity to explore the whole range of Himalayan topography, ethnic culture and lifestyle of the local people. Besides, you will also have a chance to see some interesting animals and birds at the side of trails. Among those found in the Langtang National Park are monkeys, musk deer, pika and the national bird of Nepal, the colorful pheasant.
