Gosaikunda Helambu Trek

Gosainkunda Helambu Trek offers a great opportunity for trekkers to explore the Himalayan pass, pristine valley and diverse ethnic culture along with high altitude lakes.

Langtang region is the 3rd most popular trekking region in Nepal after Everest and Annapurna. The Langtang region is the closest hiking destination from Kathmandu and has its border with Tibet. It is often called as the best kept Himalayan secrets of Nepal.

Though easily accessible from Kathmandu, the region remains relatively unspoiled and intact compared to other destination in Nepal. Few days of hike through dense forest and cultural villages takes you the pleasant pastureland of Kyangjin Gompa. Then we trek further to the holy Gosainkunda Lake with the great views of Himalayas ahead. Crossing a high mountain pass leads us to the cultural village of Helambu.

The holi lake of Gosainkunda is one of the most sacred pilgrimage sites for Hindus and Buddhist. Hindu mythology believes this lake as the abode of the Hindu deities Shiva and Gauri. The lake have been created by Lord Shiva when he thrust his Trishul (holy Trident) into mountain to extract water so that he could quench thirst after he swallowed poison.

Gosainkunda Helambu Trek introduces the first timer’s to Nepal’s gigantic mountain ranges including the Langtang Himal. Apart from stunning scenery, this trek also offers an opportunity to experience local lifestyle and culture. It is surprisingly quiet and a favorite among our guides.

Crossing of Lauribina Pass at 4,620m with the view of Tibet is fascinating. As we enter Helambu, we will experience a great Tamang culture, their lifestyle, way of agriculture and architecture at various revered sites.

We spend our night at teahouse which allows us to get in-depth knowledge about local culture and lifetime. We assure you that Langtang village is safe to trek more than ever. A professional guide along with a crew ensures a full-support and deal with any problems that arise which on the trek.
